    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 »

    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 »

    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.

    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.

    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 »
