    Gifts are totally optional for a "vow renewal". I agree with Alf - if you normally wouldn' send a gift for thsir anniversary, then no gift is necessary here. Swanky venue or not, gifts are not entranc more »

    The real problem is all the underage binge drinking. If she hadn't been drunk, probably none of this would have happened. I totally agree that if she was raped, she should press charges, but I'm going more »

    Interesting that NBC is defending the interview as "part of the story". How, exactly, is the death of Bode's brother part of the story? He is the oldest alpine skier to ever win a medal at the Olympic more »

    KMZ. No more getting out of bed. No more extra glasses of water. If you have to stay in his room until he falls asleep then do that. But no talking. When my DD gets like this I sit on the floor and bo more »

    You would think, by reading the comments, that they should still be in business. I guess I'll post the other side. I took 4 classes there when I was pregnant with my twins. The Twin Birthing Class was more »

    There is a centuries old tradition of drinking alcohol. People have been drinking beer and wine with food for hundreds of years. And the effects of al alcohol can be blunted with food. Many people hav more »

    Most private sector companies I know stopped having holiday parties years ago to save money. Why are the tax payers footing the bill for public employees to get loaded and behave badly?

    Oh Fram - so sorry to read about your DH moving out. Sending hugs. My favorite jeans are "Not Your Daughters Jeans". Really comfy and not too low rise, but not "mom jeans" either. I also had a great p more »

    We do still use our vinyl tablecloth - both on the table and on the floor. It works for cookie decorating and egg decorating and other stuff as well as art projects. We do have a learning tower with a more »

    I didn't read the tips in the link, but  I saw an episode of Supernanny where she had the kids gather up all the pacifiers and put them in a box. They left them at the kitchen door for the pacifier fa more »

    Any holiday will do in our house. Keep your cool (I know how hard that is). Offer choices where you can. And hang in there.

    Wait - they still do First Night? And they have an extra $50k to pay for junk like this?

    I think it's basically the technique that Supernanny used to use with time outs. They like to say that it's "take a break" to settle the body and mind, but I know it's simply the follow through for no more »

    You go Lissafro! By the time they are teens you have to be tough. And I'm sure the parents can be a nightmare. At least I agree that my son has trouble following direction and needs extra support.

    Thanks everyone for the comments. Poppy -  I will say that the difference between my son's teacher and your relatives is that...she's his teacher! If she wants me to be consistant with her methods, sh more »

    Nursing is hard! I think you're doing a great job trying. When I had my twins in 2009 they wouldn't latch. It was really hard because I wanted to nurse them. I pumped and supplimented with formula for more »

    The conference went okay. DD got a great report - they basically have no problem with her. She's a "limit tester" but behaves almost all time. They think she's quite bright and doing well with her hea more »

    Fra - I wouldn't push the training if she cries when sitting on the potty. She'll do it when she's ready and not before. Take it from a mom of twins - one who trained at 26 months (in 2 weeks) and the more »

    That's exactly how I felt Poppy. They do have email and I think she could easily have offered to send one. DS also has a daily sheet and she could have left a note. A simple "Ds is having trouble foll more »

    Thanks guys. (except purple - always nasty as usual). I did have a long talk with DS and I think he's just in a phase, both at home and at school, where he's resisting following directions. I do want more »

    This morning my DS (4 years old) had a hard time at drop off. He kept running out of the room before I could hand him off to the teacher. We finally got him to his cubby to hang his coat etc., and I l more »

    If they don't care then why bother with the ceremony and the wreath? Why have a 9/11 memorial if it has no meaning on this day above all?

    “The airport community recognizes the day with moments of silence, a service in the chapel, and a wreath at the 9/11 memorial,” the statement said. "And then we set the runway on fire" No one caug more »

    Hi CT - We started pre-K on Friday. DS is doing really well. He runs into his classroom and shouts "Bye Mamma" and is gone. DD is having a harder time separating. But it's a big change for them. A ful more »
