Here. I ultimately decided that I loved DH enough to deal with it, but I won't lie, it's been a disappointment that I don't have a better relationship with them and there has marital been tension over the years at different points. It's gotten better in the sense that DH and I are more on the same page and I don't regret marrying him. But if I could turn back the clock, I would tell my younger self that my problem was ultimately with my DH, not with my inlaws. Yeah, it would be nice if they made an effort to be nice and welcoming, but looking back, DH needed to be more proactive in integrating me into the family. DH and I don't fight when he is involved in setting boundaries and doesn't leave it to me. Married 20 years, together 25. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] What's it like living in the E 60's near Yorkville? Ds has a scoop on an apt sublet but I think it's too far to train for it to be worth it. 1 bedroom for $1200 if it matters. One year lease w/ electricity. He's currently in Astoria (15 min to train) and pays 1900. But large 1 bedroom with balcony. Should he consider it? 25 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Anyone have any practical tips on how to maintain healthy boundaries with in-laws? We are moving much closer to mine. MIL is great in small doses, very helpful with DCs, etc. but can be critical and tends to take control of situations after years of managing her own family (FIL is very passive). I try not to be over-sensitive but am often offended by her blunt opinions about child-rearing, my career, etc. and end up complaining to my husband (not fair, I know). People on here talk about maintaining boundaries--what exactly do they mean? Just take a deep breath and be grateful to have help nearby? I don't want to be either a pushover, passive aggressive or (worse case scenario!) openly aggressive. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My advice is stay something the first time... she does something you don't like, mention it right then and there. You can't change her behavior outright but you can alert her to your feelings. You can always answer with "it works for us" or "thanks for letting me know..." so she knows her opinions are being heard. Sometimes older people just want to be heard. I'd always sat "ok" to my grandmother and then just do whatever I wanted. [ Reply | More ]

Are you looking to move to a specific school zone? If yes, I would highly recommend considering PS 59. I heard negative things about 267 - can't email teachers and very austere principle. [ Reply | More ]

more and more teachers won't email as part of school policy. this is due more to parents taking advantage than anything else. [ Reply | More ]

Like the facility more than 151. 527 is smaller. But it's new, so no track record. [ Reply | More ]

151, 267 and527 are newer schools. 158 and 290 have been around a long time, are more well known and have longer track record. Once upon a time their zones included what is now 151,267 and 527 so it's a similar group of kids just too many for the 2 schools which are now 5 schools [ Reply | More ]

Who cares whether they are over? If you like it and it is practical, go for it. I use a goyard tote which is over/striver and I love it, lightweight totes like this are the best for carrying kid stuff and your stuff around, when I use leather it is way too heavy [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] DH ruined our vacation. We were supposed to go overseas for two weeks as of Thursday. I made all the arrangements and booked everything four months ago. I told him, your only job is to get a passport for the youngest DC. DH gets pissed off if I "remind" him of things, so i said nothing. I asked him today whether we got the passport. He said he applied three weeks ago. I called in and basically we are screwed. We will not get his passport in time and will essentially forfeit 5k worth of vacation. 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

He did expedited processing. I also checked into the fact that you can get a passport overnight if you are willing to pay. However, if you have an application pending, you are not able to do this. [ Reply | More ]

NO! do not use a service. Just go to the office. I posted below. You need the forms, id, photos and $170. You will get it. It will be annoying and a long day, but you will get it. I have actually done this twice and got it same day both times. [ Reply | More ]

OMG, I'm so sorry. Is there really no way to pay a lot to get it done in 48 hours? I thought there were services like that. I would be livid. I know you should probably take the high ground on this one but I'd want to rub it in his face for a long time. Hopefully you're better than me! LOL. [ Reply | More ]

You both have to do the application so clearly he hasn't done it. You should both have reviewed what is needed for getting a passport, this is not the sort of thing one parent can assign to the other [ Reply | More ]

Yeah, if she is claiming she called in and they have it but haven't processed it then it has to be fake. can't submit the application without both parents there in person or without a signed affidavit which isn't exactly something they would have lying around the house for him to take to the PO [ Reply | More ]

Why would you not check up on something so important? And why wait until two days before to see if he got it? Sounds fake. Or like you were setting him up to fail so you could be pissed at him. [ Reply | More ]

If you're worried about it, why did you sign them up in the first place? Serious question. Either have confidence in your child's safety or don't, but don't have doubts and leave your child anyway, it just makes you sound irresponsible to leave your kid first and ask later. [ Reply | More ]
