Hey there, urban mamas!
Little Adventurers Day Home is looking to reopen its doors so that its services may be available to families in the Lents community and in the southeast. Our first focus are the underserved families in Lents (low-income/no-income, immigrant, people of color), and ensuring these families have the same access to quality child care and parental and family support as moderate to high income families do. Our cause is a great one but we need much support to take it on and begin serving families.

I hope you will catch the vision! Our needs are mostly financial at present, but we also need volunteers in the very near future to help us with the work of creating a safe, eco-friendly space for the children in our care. This includes hauling trash, rototilling, gardening, and laying concrete. Please contact me for more information. We hope to reopen our doors at the beginning of the school year. For a list of services or to learn the history of LADH, you may visit our website at littleadventpdx.org.
Thanks for reading!

Does your child have a great room decorated in a Super Hero style? It doesn't matter if it's Superman or Spidey, it just needs to be really cool. I'm a video producer for the popular website About.com and we are looking for a local mom who would like to show off her child's Super Hero room. You would appear on camera and talk about how you created the room and offer tips to other parents who are interested in creating a similar look.
Here's a similar video on How to Decorate a Dinosaur Themed Bedroom:
You can share the video on social media, show your friends, plus receive a $25.00 thank you.

My 2 year old had a visible cavity on her back molar that a well-liked pediatric Portland dentist declined to treat with a filling until she was 3 years old. Me only having one child and no experience with this, didn't think this was unusual at the time. Fast forward 6 months (she is still not 3) and this tooth has quickly gotten to the point of awful looking and rotten despite good daily dental hygeine. Now the same dentist says she needs a "mini-root canal" and a silver cap placed with IV sedation. Besides the issues here that I was told to wait until she was 3 and I am now questioning this dentist's lack of proactivity, my daughter is a very particular child (especially when it comes to anything visual... ie clothing colors, stickers, jewelry, hair bands) and will FREAK OUT with a silver cap on her tooth. I don't see this as something that she would easily adjust too.
Does anyone know of a good pediatric dentist that uses other alternatives besides silver caps in the Portland area? This dentist (who I won't name because she is very well liked, and I am sure she probably does good work), says I would have to go to Gresham to get something other than a silver cap and that all pediatric dentists in Portland will only use silver.
Cost is not an issue here. We have private dental insurance.

I am a local doula who has completed the DONA training and has attended some births, but am still working towards my certification. Due to this, I am offering my services to any pregnant mothers and their partners for a decreased fee. My doula care encompasses every woman, no matter if you birth at home or in a hospital. Serving families in and around the Portland metro area, I provide continuous emotional, physical and informational care before, during and immediately after labor and delivery for pregnant mothers and their partners. The moment you meet your little one for the first time is a critical period in your and the baby's life; a time of bonding and love. I believe that no matter what type of birth experience you choose, a strong and informed support team will enrich your labor and delivery. I can provide references, and you may also explore testimonials from previous clients at www.m2mdoulacare.com for more information. I look forward to hearing from you! Please contact me with any questions you may have, email@example.com.
