Hi, I'm not new to iVillage but am new to this board. Reagan is my 6 year old. She will be 7 on March 17!! Can't believe she's going to be 7 and going into 2nd grade in the Fall. Where does all the time go?

I'm looking forward to getting to know you ladies and hopefully will see some familiar faces from our March Munchkins PG that shut down last year. :)

Hi Chrissie,

Welcome to the board! Time goes way too fast! Do you have any big plans for Reagan's birthday? I look forward to getting to know you better!

Thank you! Yes, we had our 3rd and final installment on Saturday, the 26th. :) Reagan loves the baby and oohs and ahhs over her every chance she gets. She was 5 when my son was born and is pretty used to the "baby" routine and is such a huge help. She is a great big sister.

We haven't decided what to do about Reagan's birthday yet. She wanted to do Chuck E Cheese's but I think I nixed that one, LOL. If the weather holds out like it has been we will have it at the park like we have in the past. If it is cold or rainy, we may just have a small gathering at our house and then let her have a couple of girlfriends to spend the night. We have never done a sleepover before so we shall see. That might be a little too much estrogen for me to handle while also dealing with a toddler and a newborn. Hahaha!

Hi Chrissie. It's nice to meet you. I see you have three kids - me too! How old is your youngest? Would that be Kinley? My three are 7, 6 and 15 months old. Then I also have the big kid, SO who is 45 ;)
Christian, my 6 year old is also going into grade 2 in the fall. Our cut off date is December 31st. Most kids his age (born in Sept '04) going to school in the US are only in SK this year. We're in Canada. Amazing the difference from country to country.
How is Reagan doing in school? Girls have a tendancy to excel faster than boys anyway, so I'm sure she's doing wonderfully!!! My boys are in a French Immersion school. We speak only English, so this is so cute to see the boys learning a new language and speaking with a little French accent. Just adorable.
Anyway, Chrissie, I look forward to getting to know you better. I'll do my best to stop in more often,
