    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.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Moving Up

    My DD will be 3 on Sunday (Veteran's Day in the US) so I'm moving up a tad early.

    I'm 43 with a 5 year old and a soon-to-be 3 year old. I have 4 step children and 3 step grandkids with a 4th due any day now. I'm an accountant and DH is a cabinetmaker. We also have two cats and one fish.

    Jodi (28), DH (24), Shaelynn (2), DD2 (due 5/16)

    I'd like to be able to say that but we don't see the kids often. None of the grandkids live in town and one lives several hours away. We do get updates from my step daughter though. She's the one who's due any day now with her 3rd boy.

    Welcome to the boards!
    Sucks that you don't get to spend much time with the LOs but I am sure you 2 are keeping you busy!...
    Are yours boys girls or one of each?
    tlkittycat1968 replied to Zaysmama's response:
    One of each. PJ (5) and Kylee (3).

    We took Kylee ice skating yesterday for her birthday (her actual birthday was Sunday). She did pretty well for never having been on skates before. They have buckets to use for balance and she used those as she skated around.
    Zaysmama replied to tlkittycat1968's response:
    sounds like fun!...
    I wish they had things like that where I live because the only thing for little kids is the playground and in the winter or rain, thats not a real option!...
