Cloth napkins for kid's lunches - feedback needed

I have been using, making and selling eco-friendly reusuable snack bags for a year now. I started because I wanted snackbags for Charlie to take to Pre-K that were different from the usual zippy plastic bags. At his Pre-K all the snack bags were put in a big basket for the kids to pass out at snack time. I wanted Charlie's to be easy to recognize even with his name on it. I started pricing the bags and thought "Holy Cow! I can make these for less money" and so I did. Charlie is starting Kindergarten this year....more

Allowances and Chores?

Our son, Charlie, is 5 years old. He is beginning to realize that things he wants (mainly toys) cost money. And that Mommy & Daddy say "no" quite a bit when it comes to buying toys. The current toy Charlie wants is a boxed set of Disney Cars from the movie Cars. It costs $9.99 which Charlie says is 99 dollars. Too cute! He has been asking how he can get the 99 dollars to buy the toys before someone else does.   My husband & I have been talking about the possiblity of an allowance for Charlie for a few months now. I have mixed feelings about it....more

Raising Boys Stories

Hi. Welcome to the BlogHer forum for mothers raising boys! Let's start some dialog. What stories can you share about being a mom to a boy or questions you might have?  I have 4 boys, ages 8, 6, 3 and 1. Things in my house are fun, crazy and full of testosterone. There was a time when I was sad that I never had a girl, now I feel that it's my mission to raise responsible, respectful, good future members of our society.
