[ - ] I am concerned about my granny. She is 82 yrs. old and has not one but two FWBs. I am worried maybe she has lost some of her mind. She was always a very moral and almost prudish woman. How can I help her? 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] WOHMs - how did you manage business travel in the first year? I have a couple of overnight trips scheduled, and I'm wondering if they are really possible. DB will take a bottle during the day, but I'm not sure how she would react to me not being there to nurse and put her to bed at night. If you traveled without baby in the first few months, who looked after the baby and how did it go? 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Both DH and I were on separate work trips when DB was 11 months. He stayed with his grandparents and had a great time. He wasn't nursing then however. That said, babies are totally fine when you are not there -- has there ever been a night when your husband did the night time routine (when you had to work late, or whatever). They'll fine, especially when they can't see you. [ Reply | More ]

"The IBO’s about-face on special-education retention numbers is the result of its use of a broader definition for students with disabilities. Last year, the IBO looked only at students receiving full-time special education services, leaving out a significant portion of students that the city classifies as having a disability."

[ - ] Why are religious people sometimes inconsolable when a loved one dies? If they really have faith, as they claim, that there is a heaven or whatnot, shouldn't they be happy that loved one is going there? My father died, and so I'm trying SO HARD to believe that he is "in a better place", but when those people with all the consoling words are beside themselves with grief when one of *their* loved ones passes away, I just don't really believe them.

The quality is better than that of similar styles you'd find in places like Ann Taylor - you can tell by the weight and by the clasps. It's in between costume & fine jewelry; they use nice stones, etc., but the metals are plating so it does rub off with repeated wear (like, over the course of a couple of years). It's not stuff you'll keep wanting to wear for more than 3-4 years max, so it depends on how far you want your money to go. [ Reply | More ]
