Maybe they should pay teacher's aids a livable wage and consistent hours, and she won't have to have an iffy second job.

Also, my husband picked up a plastic easel we used outside last summer and it's on our curb in Rowley with a free sign on it if someone wants to "try before you buy."

Hey Ladies, I don't post very much because I don't have alot to say these days (and now I am going to sound like Debbie Downer - I apologize!) I thought of the same thing maybe last year, that DD need more »

MissLily, mostly I'm just posting to say "hugs" and "vent away." It sounds like you have alot going on, aren't feeling that great, and are rightfully upset. I'm always amazed how how much you manage, more »

You lost me at "Of course I love your sisters as much as you, but itâs different. They are my princesses. You, on the other hand, are my son." This isn't advice or things you feel about your daughte more »

I'm a fierce liberal, I will read the article online (won't pay for it), but the article itself isn't the issue, the issue is the cover - it makes him look like a latter-day Bob Dylan or something. I more »

I wish I could just like all these posts - such great stuff to think about. For toys, DD also likes to just use the real thing, and as often as possible (i.e. if it's safe) we let her use them. Honest more »

Curious what this will mean for other gene patents, particularly the cuckhold Monsanto has on farmers. Hope this opens opportunities for farmers.

I face this problem and basically, I live with the choices the grands make with my daughter - but since my husband works for himself we have a great deal more flexibility than most families. Last week more »

My daughter can entertain herself for an hour if I put her in the tub with shaving cream I sometimes add a few drops of food coloring to make different colors. She'll paint the wall and herself and it more »

Wow, this is a great post! I have a similar problem, and DD will be 3 in August. Non compliance is a challenge. We definitely practice natural consequences. She's also learned she has a window of oppo more »

Thanks everyone, especially Kar on the defense :) You are all so right, it's life, these things happen and if these parents are that judgemental, they have bigger issues than po0p in their back yard!
