[ - ] It's gross out today, so I'm wearing my hair in a pony tail and an old baseball cap that has DH's company's name/logo on it. While walking the dog, I ran into an acquaintance who said, "Wearing stuff branded with your DH's hedge fund is the adult equivalent of wearing your college boyfriend's fraternity letters". She was gushing, not mocking, which strangely made me want to throw my coffee at her. I know, csb. 25 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

No, that is an epic fail. If my son does not go to an ivy, the space will be filled by an equally smart young man. Anyway, girls who go ivy marry dramatically better husbands than girls that do not. [ Reply | More ]

I would love to see your ds major in Dance while your dd majors in quantitative math. I wonder what your ds will do with that. [ Reply | More ]

I am not sure what you mean. My DS will probably major in petroleum engineering so he has a stable secure way to make money to support a family. Who could argue with that? [ Reply | More ]

So you think your daughter's best bet in life is marriage while your son has to provide for himself and his future wife who will be similar to your dd and will major in "good wife material"? Did I get this right? [ Reply | More ]

For a daughter i would send her to the place with most prestige because for girls the husband they marry is heavily dependent on where they go to college. So a girl who goes to princeton and majors in music has a chance of marrying a Princeton Private Equity guy [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] 7yo with inconsistent fever for 5 days. went to doc who said its some kind of virus, prescribed nothing and just said to watch the fever. Fever has ranged from 103.3 to 100.1 throughout the days. when low dose of children's tylenol or advil is given it brings it down quicjkly to 97-98. but between doses it rises again. Am i supposed to consistently give medicine to break the fever or wait it out for the fever to break on its own? DC is comfortable, has appetite, not lethargic, but is sleeping more (stayed home from school this week). Amazingly even with 2 dc, we've never dealt with a prolonged fever before. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I keep checking temperature toward or at the end of the dosage (six hours for ibuproferin and four for tylenol) to determine if I should give another dose. If it's 100.4, I give another dose. My dd and ds have had a five-day fever that ended in a rash (roseola). They were fine otherwise, but I kept the fever down for their comfort. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I'm flying back with my boyfriend for Thanksgiving today to meet his parents for the first time and stay with them. Am I supposed to bring them something? Like what? I was thinking food, but I can't really bring that on the plane, so should I make a grocery stop after we get to into the airport and get the rental car? It's just it's going to be really late when we get in. The thought of making another put stop seems annoying. Necessary? 25 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
