    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I thought it was so cute when I read on 4/5 how Lily calls the nurse her allergist. How funny!

    It sounds like Lily is adjusting well to the new school.

    Yes, she loves it. It took me a minute the first time she said "I saw my allergist today!" to figure out who she meant, it was too funny!

    We'll know more at the end of the month but I think she will not qualify for speech services, which is fantastic - that means she is actually talking to people and participating in her education instead of hiding under tables or covering her ears like she did last year.

    That's great news about the speech services! It sounds like this school is a really good fit for her. With the stress of the move and everything, I bet that's a big relief for you.

    Look out, though. In a few more months you may have the same problem as we do with Emily -- teaching her NOT to talk all the time.

    That's what's so funny about it - at home, she never shuts up.
    My biggest problem right now is convincing her to stop playing with her friends during lunch nd actually eat something - apparently they like to spend their time trying to "train" bananas lol. So she comes home and she's a total bear because she's so hungry.

    We have issues eating lunch, too.

    I know I have food issues, and I'm trying really, really hard to not pass them on to DDs. (Eat fast, eat anything, finish all your food, etc.) But it's hard when she ends up with a drink and a few bites of something for lunch. I've seen a lot of improvement this week, though.

    Hmmm.... training bananas. And I thought using their food to make funny faces was odd.
