  • Forum Post: Healthcare law(s) question

    Posted 01/31/2013 11:27:23 EST

    The irony is that the people who make the determination of the "fit" and "fat" definition are not physicians or fitness experts at all.  They're most likely your average overweight cubicle-dweller who more »

    Of course it's discrimination, but all insurance is based on discrimination of one sort or another. This is how they determine what level of 'discounts' you would apply for. I'm curious as to why you more »

    Posted 01/29/2013 08:39:41 EST

    This is an absolute crock of dung. You need a smart phone app to make checking a diaper easier? It's not that hard to tug the waist of the kid's pants out to give it a look,(then let your wife know th more »

    Here are a few things that we do, they might or might not work for your house. No more gate on the bedroom, but gate at top of the stairs.  No water cup in the room, but a big-kid(open) cup in the bat more »

    Our daughter, same age, is doing the same things at least once a night and has been for quite some time now.  Thirsty, bathroom, hot, cold, bad dream, etc. We try not to make too much of it, just addr more »

    Posted 01/11/2013 02:20:36 EST

    Sorry, but I just have to comment here. It's all too sad that the common theme is thongs used to be worn in early 20's but now that you're married and have kids, they're not even considered as an opti more »

    Posted 11/29/2012 12:09:06 EST

    Don't compare one to the other for things like learning, development, etc. They might be twins, but they are two separate human beings that will do things at their own pace.

    I live and work near/in NY and take my kids in often.  Don't fret about kids in a taxi, you just hold them on an adult's lap. I have never seen a taxi crash in NY, and others are right that you'll nev more »

    Posted 11/20/2012 01:44:11 EST

    Unless you're applying for a nanny job, you should not add parenting to a resume - under any circumstances. In fact, you want to stay as far away from that subject as possible. Only mention that you'v more »

    No, I do clean and assist in the cleaning of my house. I have twin toddlers who leave behind a tornado of crapola everywhere they go all day, so I know how clean houses and kids don't always go togeth more »

    Posted 10/15/2012 01:47:55 EDT

    I don't get it.  You really need an app or spreadsheet to clean your house? Sounds to me like you needed to be taught basic life skills a long time ago. Clean after you cook, wipe up after you eat. Cl more »

    Wrong, the numbers were found to be skewed.  A handful of very populous states failed to turn in their data on time and the national value was calculated as if they had 0 new filings. Notice how the m more »

    My wife is home with our kids, which is great from many aspects - like not getting all of the daycare bugs, but it makes me wonder what will happen when they get out to preschool this year.  They're o more »

    And anyone who's on board with or claiming that they 'practice attachment parenting' really has issues in my opinion. Your kids will be in the next generation of entitled whiners who camp out at a par more »

    No mention of the husband/father? What were his thoughts on this? You can bet he almost certainly opposed this and was completely ignored by the woman.  Because after all, part of being the best mom y more »
