[ - ] Considering a job that will require travel. Single mom here. At what age do you think it is OK to leave you dc home alone for a week? They will have Seamless web access for dinner each night, the diner for breakfast each morn, and lunch at school. Also a doorman building. My ds is 13 1/2 yo. Too soon or can I get busted? Thanks. 21 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Anyways, my nanny is taking two weeks due to a difficult family situation and so naturally, I asked my sister in law if she would watch my kids. It seemed reasonable considering she is not working and we are still giving her four hundred a week. She flat out refused and told us to "get a babysitter". 65 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You'll be grand. Bring two pairs of shoes, so you can put on different shoes in the evening and dry shoes every morning. I'd bring one dressy blouse or sweater in case you want to go out on Friday or Saturday night; especially in smaller towns, women tend to dress up a lot for weekend nights out. But if you stick to the pubs in the evenings, you'll fit in fine in jeans. [ Reply | More ]

OP here- the first response was excellent- I definitely want to see the test for myself- however as I expected, the other comments were pointless- I' m not calling anyone here lazy- I was writing about the powers that be, like the DOE or the principal, possibly- He's smart but unfortunately is not interested in school- the teachers are reduced to test prep for months at a time, and I don't personally feel that's the best use of my children's time and my tax dollars- I. Should mention my child took the 3rd grade ELAs- not sure if they are as important as the 4th or 5th grade tests- [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] When we hired our nanny 2 years ago, we told her the following regarding vacation. She could have one week, any time of her choosing, other than the week the schools are off in February and the week right before school starts (end of August), and that she would have to give us two weeks notice as to when that week could be taken. In addition, she would get the time from the day before Christmas to the January 2 (more than one week) and the second and third weeks in August (we would tell her the exact dates), as we are out of town then, but we like to get back well before school starts. Well this year, she has taken three half days off last week. I am furious. We have trouble arranging coverage. She says, well this year, I went to visit my family, so now I have to get my kids ready for school (drs, stuff etc). DH says time to look for a new nanny, she is taking advantage of us. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

No point fuming, you can't change the past. Sit down with a written list of mutual roles and responsibilities including pay, sick days, personal days, compensation and of course your vacation policy. Remind her that this has always been the schedule, and that you saw this summer when you tried to accomodate her plans, that any change from it really doesn't work for your family. Focus on upcoming planning now through early January and make sure she understands the policy. [ Reply | More ]

+1 and add to that open toed shoes in the winter. The wearer just looks thirsty or uninformed. [ Reply | More ]

Goyard tote bags, Toms, shaving one side of your head (I see a fresh cut every few days), platform shoes, boots that have an opening at the toe but otherwise is a regular boot (what are these called (besides hideous)), bandage dresses (although if you have the body I can see the temptation, Neoprene anything, weaves/"extensions", fake orange tans, wedge boots.

LOL. I think it's way too hard to pull off especially if you don't like to do your hair everyday. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I remember reading on the old Motherlode a SAHM posting that she fed her kids on paper plates because unloading the dishwasher was just so "exhausting". Really? You want to feel that you're "respected" or whatever, don't post that shit. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You know what? If I am having a crazy week, we do that too. I would rather eat a meal on paper once in awhile vs rushing around to work that chore in on some days that are already packed. If I finish work, pick up the kids, feed them, run laundry, help with homework, fold the laundry/put it away, take out the trash, check the mail, etc....who cares? When the kids are older and can help more with chores, it will be easier. [ Reply | More ]
