[ - ] WWYD? 3 yo DS kept calling out to me from his room after bedtime, trying to delay bedtime and get me to come back in. I ignored, and he eventually went to sleep. Just went to check on him, and found he pulled very stitch of clothing out of his closet into a giant heap on his floor. Do I make him clean it up in the a.m.? I have a hard time imagining he'll do it without a huge power struggle (he's super stubborn). Or do I ignore and refuse to acknowledge, therefore making the behavior boring, and likely to go away? 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] For those of you who have college-educated full-time nannies, what do you do when your kids go to kindergarten and no longer need the full-time care? My husband or I can drop off my DC at his school in the morning, but will need someone to pick him up from school in the afternoon and spend time with him or take him to after-school activities before I get home from work. Do you ask your college-graduate nannies to do housekeeping while your DC is at school to justify paying them a full-time salary? Is it too much to ask or is it time to look for a new part-time nanny who is in college or grad school? (A little background here: I never ask my nanny to clean or do laundry for the entire family. She only handles kids-related work.) I am thinking the latter. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

We replaced our amazing nanny with a part time housekeeper/sitter. While my old nanny did actually do a lot of this stuff during downtime (that was our arrangement) I always knew she wasn't keen on it. The young woman we have now is very happy to do whatever I ask, from picking up our backyard to organizing kid's books, to dishes, to helping me with a huge family seder. She's also pretty good with kids, though I think she's not creative enough to be great with them for a long period of time, she basically picks them up, brings them home, bathes them and puts food in front of them. That she does well and the kids like her. It's worked out great, and we had no shortage of applicants when looking for someone like that. [ Reply | More ]

Don't waste your money on that stuff. Trust me, one of the only thing that works is vinegar soaks. Do them now before it gets worse/spreads and you might be able to nip it in the bud. Let my infection go for YEARS... had no idea what it was... I still have to do vinegar baths, although it's much better than what it was. Do this: 20 min soak with 30/70 solution of water to vinegar. Warm is more comfortable, but cold is fine. If you can tolerate that, try 40/60 solution. Soak every night for 15minutes. Nice side effect: your feet will be really soft and smooth. Do nightly soaks for 2 weeks. You should improvement in 1-2 days. After 2 weeks, move to 1-3x/week and see how it goes. If infection comes back, go back to nightly soaks. You might have to do this for several months... but it will kill the nasty little fungus. Once you get it, you're more susceptible to it. Very common, so no shame. Just make sure you treat it. Don't bother with lasers, prescription meds... none of them work. Believe me, if there was a cure for NF, it would be headline news. Fortunately, there's vinegar. GL! [ Reply | More ]

I think you must know a lot of only-children boys with older, highly educated and/or high-powered professional careers (one or other parent or both). I agree with you 100% that those boys are just bizarre little-mini-men who will never be able to live outside of Manhattan. [ Reply | More ]

This. We also left the city. 2 boys. SO MUCH happier. Friends in the burbs are goofy, funny, sporty, gross-humor joke telling BOYS. Just like them. ;) [ Reply | More ]

I think you are confusing all of NYC with a small subsection of people living in certain parts of Manhattan. My NY- raised former college football playing DH and all his friends are pretty far from this stereotype. [ Reply | More ]

It's a different way of life here. So you don't like it. You'll find a better way of life elsewhere. But if you are going to say mean things about my kid, I will mock you. [ Reply | More ]

My ds grew up in Manhattan, went to pvt h.s. He can change a flat,drive a stick shift, use a drill, paint a room. He's 30 now. Defies your stereotype. [ Reply | More ]

What in his upbringing made him into the adult he is rather than the metrosexual type OP refers to? Or do you think the stereotype is just wrong? [ Reply | More ]

Does your DH do a lot with his hands (woodworking, building, repairs etc)? Is he athletic? Love the outdoors? A lot of what you're talking about is genetics and nature/nurture. If a metrosexual type urbanite Dad who spend his weekends reading the Sunday Times and the New Yorker and hires people to do all his manual labor (yard work, auto work, house repairs etc), it makes no difference if the kid lives in city or country. A Dad in NYC can keep a woodshop, take his DS to the park to ride bikes, coach Little League etc. KWIM? [ Reply | More ]

They might test for blocked tubes. Hormone levels (thyroid etc). Whatever else might cause infertility. [ Reply | More ]

just saw. See a dr. but don't freak out - the only reason i think you should see a dr is because you don't have the time to sit around and wait in case something is wrong, but in fact 5-6 mo is not enough time to tell. but start getting a full check up, etc. these things take time. get the ball rolling so in case 4 months from now you're still not pregnant you are ahead of the curve.

They are definitely good here, but some are much better than others. Don't just go on your OBs rec, do a little research online. Check http://www.sart.org etc. Most OBs in NYC recommend RMA, for instance, but they were terrible for what we needed (told me I needed donor eggs at 34.) Most likely, you won't need any help and it may just be taking a bit longer but better to start with a great doctor than waste any time with a mediocre one. [ Reply | More ]

Yes, I would start with your OB. Chances are she could run the initial tests herself (depending on her experience in this area) but if not she should be able to refer you to a reproductive specialist. [ Reply | More ]

hey, at least you are married! in my experience, if you are only 36 now you will definitely have a baby, given the state of modern medicine. But I would get all over this pronto! And I would jump to ivf, don't dick around (pun intended). Every month counts from here on in. [ Reply | More ]

Why not? These days, everyone does it. I think you need to calm down and not stress (that's the worst thing for fertility). [ Reply | More ]

At 35, the odds are greatly in your favor that you get pg naturally. It could take a year, but it will most likely happen. [ Reply | More ]
