I agree. She said she's on maximum dosage of SSRI, and her posts are all red flags for depression, anxiety disorder, and low self-esteem. But it's annoying that she's full of excuses for everything.

My ds was the perfect baby. Never cried, happy, great eater and sleeper. Having said that - a boy is going to rock your world after having a girl. They are harder when young - but your perfect dd will turn into Reagan and spew green soup at 13. [ Reply | More ]

Sorry that is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. I have 2 boys- one is a great sleeper , other not so great. I know plenty of girls that don't sleep through the night. Nothing to do with gender. [ Reply | More ]

My son slept through the night immediately - I received a lecture at his 2 week checkup because I didn't wake him during the night for a feeding. He rarely cried and was easily calmed when he did. He's 8 yo now and has never had a tantrum, no terrible 2s (or any other year). Is an amazing traveler and very easy going. [ Reply | More ]

Zero correlation between gender and sleep. Odds are that #2 in your case will be harder just because most kids are harder than your first was. As they get older I see very different dispositions between girls and boys. In general, boys seem to be harder -- listen less, etc. But even then there is a very wide range for both genders. Healthy is all that matters :-) [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] When I was a kid, the local firehouses would sound sirens at 7AM to let us know there was a snow day. We could also find out from the radio if we listened carefully to a news station. How did you find out pre-robocall and internet? 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Listen to the radio and/or tune in to the local networks, they usually had scrolling lists on the bottom. [ Reply | More ]

When I was a kid, we woke up early and sat on the floor of my parents room staring up at the TV and watchign the scrolling message along the bottom of the screen which listed which schools were closed. Then cheered if ours came across. [ Reply | More ]

I lived in the Weequahic section of Newark. We had the sirens and listened to the radio as well. As soon as we knew there was a snow day, we were outside building forts, making snowballs and sledding. Wouldn't go inside for hours. Happy memories. [ Reply | More ]
