Has anyone had experience with postnatal spina bifida surgery?

This board has some good stuff about men and naps. http://forums.familyeducation.com/discuss/general-relationships-discussion/men-and-their-naps-some-explanations-please

as far as the 8 and 3 year olds--that isn't about the step-thing as much as it is about just the gap in ages. Intact families have this same problem. In fact, your SD is doing exactly what you could predict. The developmental stage she is in according to Erickson is called "industry vs inferiority". It would probably be good for her to be involved in Girl Scouts, or sports, or a musical instrument, or 4-H or horse-back riding--something that challenges her, and so she can show herself and others that she is a capable person.
