    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.

    Ugh, Halloween. DS picked out a dragon costume about a month and a half ago. I picked him up at preschool and there he sat with no costume. I argued with him for 20 minutes at preschool to get him to put it on - no go. I argued for another 20 mnutes at home. Couldn't get him to tell me why he didn't want to wear it. But he didn't want to stay home, either.

    Eventually, I threw his (dirty) Red Sox shirt on, his Red Sox hat and grabbed an 8 foot inflatible Red Sox bat (don't even ask why we have this) and rushed him out the door telling him he was a Red Sox player.

    My girls were dinosaurs. Shae was a triceratops and Avri was a T-Rex. Shae refused to wear her mask so of course you couldn't tell she was a dinosaur. Whatever.

    We were a family of insects. DD1 was a butterfly princess, DD2 was a ladybug, I was a bumble bee(homemade) and DH was a caterpillar (also homemade). We had fun with it!
