At that age, the schools are selecting for good family fit (values, community mindedness, non-PITA) as much as looking at the child. All of us who work found it very difficult to take so much time off. But you have to do it. If you don't, think of what message that sends to the school....It's different if you are a single parent, but if you are not, showing up with just one parent is not putting your best foot forward.

Abuse and fraud basically. I know a lot of people talk about how it isn't healthy for the kids to have their parents fighting all the time but frankly that is just parents behaving like children and lacking self control.

[ - ] I need a new black midsized everyday bag. Budget up to $2700. I tend to buy Tods, Loro Piana, Chloe, Nina Ricci, Proezna Schouler, VBH, Fendi. I don't like visible logos but I don't mind if it is small, like the hardware has a logo or if it is just stamped somewhere lightly on the bag. I need something I can carry on my shoulder, preferably the main strap would have a long enough drop but I would be ok if the main handle was shorter but the bag had a longer detachable strap. Would love any suggestions! 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The fewer words or explanations the better. Just tell her unfortunately your childcare needs have changed and that you will no longer need her after such and such date and immediately move the conversation to compensation. If she probes and you can't politely dodge her question you can tell her a family member needs to come and live with you for a while and that that family member will be watching the children.
