[ - ] So, I am on the fence about the flu shot. Understand both sides, BUT people who say, "trust the CDC," are often the same people who are anti-circumcision. You don't get to tell me to blindly trust the CDC when YOU pick and choose which of their advice you follow. 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Paying for a nanny and preschool is $$$. It is a luxury, no need for school at 3. If you are 2 working parents then daycare for 2 is $$$ and preschool and nanny is $$$ so it makes sense to just do nanny [ Reply | More ]

This is why you still have a job. The alternative for them is 2 at daycare. You are so incredibly entitled. You should try earning enough $$ to pay your own salary + 20K for private preschool then get back to us about being cheap. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] What's the best time of year to have a baby? Is it better for a kid to start school if he or she was born in the beginning of the year? If they're born toward the end of the year will they be older than their classmates? Any other implications like that? Any input you guys have would be great - thanks! 1 Reply [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Honestly, when the time feels right I would go for it. Don't over think. There are all these competing theories (if I redshirt, Jr will have a headstart and do better in sports; studies show younger kids do better in the long run), but at the end of the day I really don't think it makes a difference.

this is prob true if you have something other than low cost mortgage or student loans, say credit cars or car loans. also, some states allow you to keep your house (i think) in a bankruptcy so better to keep debt on it plus cash than all equity. [ Reply | More ]
