Interesting, not sure why it’s not online. Richmond Costco has a sign that literally says “available online” lol

Costco will purge item's from their site if it's out of stock, but only sometimes. Other times they'll leave it on there and put out of stock.

It's super annoying, but you can find the URL which is still live. Check back on it periodically and it may become available again.

With things going back to normal it's been nice to take my kid to the playgrounds around my area. I live in Kits and can literally drive towards UBC and can hit up 8 playgrounds and pick a quiet one to play. I live in a shoe box so I don't get the backyard space however most of the parks on the west side are dead since all the rich folks have their own backyards for their kids or they are above using public parks lol.

Pro tip: the water park in the Dunbar area during the summer time is literally dead on the weekends if anyone of you guys needs a quiet park for your kids to play in.

Yaaas! My youngest which just turned 2 spent 3/4 of her life essentially at home or outside in the hood and has never even gone to play at playground before until yesterday. She had a blast and it was just fucking weird to think wow this is her first time on a slide.

Haha our 14 month old is now walking (semi) comfortably on her own, and she walked on her own outside for the first time yesterday.

A small tip for those who aren't there yet, try not to make a big deal when your child falls when waddling around the house. We found with ours when she was just taking a few steps at a time, she'd fall and then cry and whine for a short time while looking for our reactions. Unless she banged her head somewhere we'd shrug it off and say it's ok, get up and wipe your hands, etc. We wouldn't even go to her. I think that helped a lot because yesterday she fell a few times on the pavement and every time she'd just get up and dust herself off and carry on.

Let them fall (reasonably of course), and get back up on their own. Freaking out and coddling them will do more harm then good (IMO, of course).

Also a tip, from the wife, for kids just learning to walk, hard soled shoes are apparently not good for their development. You want super pliable soft soled shoes to just offer protection from the elements, but still allow them to use their feet muscles to feel the ground, etc.

Went camping for the first time this year, right around the time she started fully 'walking'. We were concerned that she'd be a handful when the adults are setting up/taking down, but we brought a cheap Ikea highchair w/ tray we picked up used, and she sat still in there for as long as we needed her - I think she was just taking in all the new sights, watching us put the tent up, etc.

The Ikea highchair is actually pretty damn excellent because it fits right over the bench on picnic tables, so she gets to sit and eat with everyone else.

Fell on her ass a handful of times and we found her chewing on some twig she found, but overall super fun and we think she liked it too. Slept well, ate well, took a massive shit three times. Also probably coincidence but within a day of returning she added 4 more words to her vocabulary lol.

Waterpark season is upon us and what ive learned in the last month is that the kids love it and if your gonna bring your kids to the park, please bring their own toys. Any type of bucket is preffered by the kids. Multiple times a day i have to ask/negotiate/fight other kids to return toys back to my crying son.

We go to sand pits for my son to play. So many kids just come and take our toys and parents don't do anything about it. It's so frustrating.

lol we went camping Saturday night again, she wouldn't sleep until 10:30pm and I woke up to some rustling at 4am and she was standing over my head. Had to take her for a walk around the campgrounds to get her to fall asleep again.

My wife has vowed to never go camping again lol - little does she know I booked 2 nights mid-July...

Not directly because of the heat, but yesterday evening our power cut out with no ETA on a fix from Fortis. So we zipped up to my inlaws so the 6 month old wouldn't get roasted. She stayed in the room the 3 year old used to stay in up there so I shared a room with the 3 year old in case being in a new bedroom threw her off a bit. She went to bed fine but woke up at 4am and was basically bouncing around from there on out. Every time I'd nearly fall back asleep she'd do something else and wake me up again lol.

4:00 am joins me in the big bed
4:30 am wants to go back to the other bed
5:00 am gets upset because I rolled over and she couldn't see me so she thought I left
5:30 am has to pee
6:00 am turns the light on to read a book
6:30 am wakes me up because she has a booger
7:00 am wants to snuggle
7:30 am wants breakfast

Normally it's a struggle to get her out of bed by 9 and eating before 9:30 lol.

It's been both better and worse - she (27 months) takes more work to get to bed and shows more signs of heat making her tired/grumpy but when she's out she's out. She's sleeping more steadily once she's out (sleeps from 8p-5:30a or so nonstop) than what's been normal lately (waking up at midnight and having to join me and mom for the rest of the night).

lol I guess after 3 days of blistering heat our girl liked the cooler weather. For the first time in ever she didn't wake up until 8am (she's usually up at 6:30am).

Wife and I totally slept in, and I was late for work. 100% worth it.

surprisingly one of the best sleeps me and my wife has had was at camp. My son slept through the night which he usually never does. My son prefers the cold weathers to sleep thru than the hot. But at this point in time, ive given up sleep training my son(25 months) cause he just doesnt sleep that well no matter what we do. Its just easier for me to just sleep with him in his bed.

Question for those whose child has probably gone through this.

Our 16 month old started biting things randomly & sucking fingers. I assume it's a phase, but it's destructive lol. She ripped off the eye of a teddy bear and last night bit me on the neck for zero reason. She's not teething because she already has all her teeth except the back 4 molars, and it just started out of the blue.

Any tips? Internet says "positive reinforcement" but I don't want to be like "wow you're not sucking your thumb!" because that'll just make her do it...lol

Oh she's teething, them things will keep growing into place.
My youngest twins were like this, sucking fingers, biting etc. Positive reinforcement works but stern discipline worked even better. Hard to speak to them like an adult but telling the little shits it hurts and by giving them an angry "OW!" sorted that out.... Eventually.
On the oldest twins I put siracha just underneath their favorite sucking finger's nail. Now though they like food spicier than I do. Good luck to you.
