    You pull on the oven door and it swings left to right. Harder for tiny people to do, and also harder for them to fall.

    I have never seen a single oven that didn't open up in the "normal" pull down fashion. I just don't think any other kind is popular in America. I've never even seen one for sale that doesn't.

    So for the last 6 weeks I've been not talking about Bulgarian girl being pregnant since last time we found that out she miscarried like a week later. But this time we just got the Harmony genetic screen back for chromosomal abnormalities and it's all normal so I guess I am going to be a father if all goes well?

    But the real important part is I got to send this to my family since we also got the sex back: https://imgur.com/gallery/JqRBeXZ

    The only ones I've come across are in-wall mounted units which yeah that's extremely uncommon in the US these days.

    I hate North American ovens and their huge single cavity so much. But this isn’t a good thread, so will just say it’s a safety problem I hadn’t even thought of before I moved here!

    Also I need a new oven lock I guess.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to clear out a stuffed nose of a 6 year old? The dude can't blow his nose to save his life. We've been running a humidifier in his room and making him take a hot bath or shower every night but he's still blocked.

    I know if he could just learn how to blow his nose he'd be able to clear it out.

    We got one of those Fridababy snot sucker things - a tube with a filter, one end at the end of the child’s nose, one end on your mouth, you suck, snot comes out their nose. Works pretty well on a 10m old, though he hates it. I assume the principle would be the same.

    Double ovens have a smaller compartment and elide the drawer if you want a smaller compartment. Otherwise for a really small oven most Americans would just use a toaster oven.

    It’s the two compartments, one with the broiler element and a separate oven temperature control, which I really miss. Being able to cook two things at the same time at two different temperatures is - well, I’m finding it so hard to cook without that ability.

    Having a toaster oven to do it is…fine I guess. But it’s adding a separate appliance and counter and outlet space for something ovens can do already. It’s one of the weirdest, most aggravating everyday culture changes I’ve had since moving.

    But I digress!

    That's what I meant, you can get ones with two chambers here, they're just less common. We loved ours so much that when we moved we had a wall oven setup done so we could have two full size ovens. But the standing oven we had with two chambers was great so long as you weren't trying to do a turkey and a big pot at the same time.

    We solved that by baby gating the kitchen until she was old enough not to need it anymore.

    Due to the landlord renovating this into “open concept” by ripping out a doorframe and sliding doors, there is no baby gate large enough to block off one of the accesses to the kitchen area. I looked, at length.

    It is…upsetting.

    What about this?

    We’ve got a couple of the smaller Regalo’s blocking out our stairs right now, actually! Sadly due to the irregular size of the opening, I don’t think the giant one would fit (or a subsection of it, as the opening isn’t that wide - maybe three doorways across?)

    We really just need to get on with finding our own place.

    This is the gate we used to keep the kids corralled away from the kitchen. It is configurable, so you can make it much smaller as needed- the individual panels can be removed. The connections are also moveable so you can turn and bend them, and sort of lock them into place once configured.
    We gave up very quickly in babyproofing our kitchen. We have a wide entrance to block off, and it worked until the kids learned how to unlock the gate themselves

    Ah, the smaller ones have panels you can add/remove, but I couldn’t make them fit the gap - it was too wide or too narrow. Now if they can turn and bend a bit, that’s very interesting and useful to know. Might fit the gap then. Thanks for that! Shall give it another look.

    I was going to recommend the one mentioned by @Corvus and @MulysaSempronius. We used it on our also-open-concept first-floor to block access between the living room / kitchen area and the stairs / hallway. We just had to take a couple panels out, then it mounted nicely between one wall and the bottom of the stairs.

    (The connection points were at 90 degrees to each other, too - one mounted facing south and the other east, as an example, and it worked just fine like that.)

    So my son hasn't had any accidents in the last few days of potty training. Like, he's been really good about using the toilet when he has to, way faster than his sister did at the same age.

    Are we....are we almost done with diapers (except for naps/sleep)?! It feels like the finish line is so close.

    My kid's have a Taekwondo class they go to (enrolled my daughter to hopefully build some self confidence) and they have a Nerf Nite coming up... We asked my son if he wanted to go and of course he's excited. I asked my daughter and she said "as long as they don't hit me I'll go" which is exactly what I expected her to say haha.

    We have one, I'll have to see if I can find a link. It's got three panels, and the middle one has a latching gate so you don't have to step over it.

    Honestly my mental health has suffered a lot. It's part of the reason why I'm going to have to send my kids to in-person schooling and daycare again. It's a risk but at this point I don't think it's good for my kid's mental health as well.

    We debated sending my then 3yr old to preschool last year. I thought he needed to interact with other kids since we'd done a bad job of doing that even before COVID. We both strongly believe it was the right choice. He really enjoyed it, and all of our mental health really suffered whenever he was home.

    Edit to say I'm worried about the large number of young kids who have now gone 1yr+ without really interacting with other kids their age. I don't begrudge any parent for making the choice they think is best, but I'm still worried about the long term impacts. Hopefully they're minimal.

    The upswing in my oldest's mood and demeanor was significant and immediate when they started in school again for the last month of the semester. They were only going 4 days a week and it was less than a half day but just getting to see other kids again was huge for them.

    We had our kiddo out of daycare for about 14 months, sent her back in May. We were worried about her development, but toddlers (she’s now two and a half) can bounce back pretty well, and since she has been back she has been learning new things like crazy.

    That said, I am worried about having to pull her out again if Delta gets worse. Last year was tough, and I am a little shocked we managed to get through it, but I don’t know if I can handle going through that again.

    Day 1 of daycare and we get an email sent to us (to every parent) saying Hands, Foot and mouth virus is sweeping the daycare. And if your child gets it you must wait for the sores to heal before they come back in.

    Ah how I've not missed this part of the daycare lol

    Ugh, I don't miss that.

    Schools here start 24Aug, which is earlier than we thought they would. Full masks inside, still doing contract tracing and all that jazz. Which is good, hopefully things are relatively smooth again this year.

    If I remember correctly you are near Dayton right? It’s definitely a thing in that area right now because my nephew got it from one of his friends at his birthday party mid July.

    I honestly hadn’t even heard of it until he got it. It was one of those things I missed as a kid.

    Go to daycare, they said. It'll be fun, they said. Meet new kids and catch interesting diseases, they said.

    Yeah I'm in Dayton. They said normally it's a one time deal per season but some of these kids have gotten it twice already so that's why they are requiring them to not have the sores. They're being extra precautious.

    Parents of SW Ohio kids who got HFM this summer, represent! :biggrin:

    We were freaking out because a week before we left on vacation my daughter had to be picked up early because she threw up at school (and she has never thrown up before in her life, aside from spitting up as a newborn). She got off easy though with just 1 sore on her cheek and one on her tongue. She got over it just a day or two before we had to leave but then caught the other bug circulating around daycare that week, which was an upper respiratory virus. Let me tell you how fun it was driving 16 hours in the car with a sick kid who is too young to take cold medicine and cannot entertain herself for long stretches at a time.
