Speaking of Philanthropy...

As I mentioned the other day, our family is going to be supporting the 3-Day each month by highlighting (and sponsoring) a 3-Day walker... this month's walker, Jenifer, is still profiled over there on the right. (Look for the section in pink type.)

Congrats to Aunt Jennifer for being the first one to join us in making a donation to Jenifer! Aunt Jennifer will receive some handmade cards to send to her loved ones.

For all of you out there who may be looking for a larger commitment, the 3-Day is now offering an incentive for walkers who register before March 9th:
Now is the time to commit to the biggest, boldest breast cancer event in history!

Register for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure™ between February 24th – March 9th with the discount code RESOLVE and we’ll give you a $25 discount off the registration fee. Experience the event that past walkers have called “inspirational, hope-filled, emotionally rich and life-altering.”

This is your opportunity to reconnect with your power to change the world. Resolve to make it happen. Register at or call 800-996-3DAY. Give the discount code RESOLVE by March 9th and we'll take $25 off your registration fee.

Note: Participants must visit, attend a Get Started Meeting or call 800-996-3DAY to register before midnight (CT) on March 9, 2010 and use the discount code RESOLVE to receive the $25 discount off the registration fee. We're sorry but we are not able to retroactively discount any previous registrations, or registrations that are made without using the discount code.

Aunt Jennifer made a very small contribution (will that amt. even matter to someone doing THREE walks?!) so Aunt Jennifer doesn't need too much of a gift, but a little one would be awse.

Re: Panda room revisited. Miss Lady is getting to the age that (I hear) is kind of ...regressive-y in the development. 15-16 months is when, a pediatrician friend of mine says, they pull inwards and want no one who isn't mommy or daddy (they do the hiding-behind-mom's-leg and all of that) so perhaps it's shades of that transition too.

But, of course, going to a new place is hard for all of us at any age. Transitions are a challenge!

Yes - I think transitions are a challenge at all levels... and we've been putting her thru the paces lately:
Kangaroo room > Panda Room
Two naps/day > One nap/day
Formula > Milk
Bottle > Sippy Cup (except at bedtime)
Purees > Solid food

So, I'm pretty impressed at the limited issues she's having... also, ironic - the word verification that I have to put in to post this is "punda" which is almost panda, but not. LOL
