    Wait, Baby Bargains said that about Pali? Ugh!  We totally must have missed that...  I thought we read it for each thing we bought.  Rats!  (It's still beautiful furniture, except for the finish!)  In more »

    Cici - I had the exact same leave situation, and that week of PTO/sick leave counted toward the STD it ended up being only 5 weeks.  I thought that was unfair, they were double-dipping!  Mi more »

    Jennifyr, my DS was the same way about bottles.  He had to be really hungry and not even know I'm home in order to take the bottle.  If he knew I was in the house, he'd cry until I fed him!  It took a more »
