[ - ] A colleague had an affair with another woman in our industry, left his wife and now has two adorable twin girls (in addition to two sons from his first marriage). His kids are adorable and everyone acts like they're the greatest couple. I can't help but feel bad for his first wife and a little disdainful of my coworker and DW2. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] We had a nanny who worked for us for less than a year. We were disappointed with her work, low energy and disengaged, and as we were thinking about other options she resigned. One the reasons we were taking our time was because I was about to switch jobs, which she didn't know. Anyway she told us a big story about how a family member was sick and she needed to go home, then we found out she was working for another family in our school. That all tea transpired last year and today I get a voicemail from a mom who's interviewing her for a nanny position. Do I say she's a lazy dishonest slug, or not call back, or try to say something somewhat positive. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

OK, I would avoid saying anything too vindictive that will prevent her from getting the job (though I understand the annoyance).

The daycare was there for years and was amazing! Was there from age 3 all the way up to 12 when I went to after school program and day camp in the summer. Sadly after city budget cuts the daycare closed and now it's privately owned and called Trilok. Did you use Trilok at the 3s level? Anything about it you don't like? [ Reply | More ]

Yes, I've had my son there since he was about 22 months old. I started him mid-year in their 2's program. He's loved it there. I will keep him in there next year for PreK unless I get into a public PreK. If that happens, then I'll be happy to save the cash. I like Trilok a lot. Sometimes the administration is a little loosey goosey and they've had a little bit of teacher turnover in the past. But it seems to be improving in that regard and there are definitely some great teachers there. They do a ton of fun activities with the kids and they definitely can take 95% of the credit for potty training my little one. The parents are a really nice group there too. I've made a lot of friends and would have made more if I'd applied myself a bit more. I'm not exactly super involved in PTO stuff. Really hard to get myself there with work conflicts.

[ - ] Anyone applying for a first grade spot at a private school? I applied to four schools and only called back at two. Not expecting to get into any, but you never know. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] New nanny asked if she could post pics of my dcs on her Instagram and facebook pages. I thought this was a strange request so I said no. Do you allow your nannies to do this? I feel like Ive only known her for 2 weeks and I really don't see an upside to this. 24 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

no, no photos on her social media - no talk of work or where she works either [ Reply | More ]

um no I would never allow this. I question the judgement of you nanny. Are you really comfortable with this person watching your DC? [ Reply | More ]

Disagree, I applaud the judgment of the nanny for asking. Especially if she doesn't have DC of her own, I think it shows prudence that she realized it would not be ok to do so without asking. [ Reply | More ]

She has 3 of her own kids. Maybe I'm just old and not a social media person. I, very private...especially when it comes to dcs [ Reply | More ]

I think that's totally ok, but there's nothing inherently wrong with her not being that way if she isn't putting your DC online against your will. [ Reply | More ]

I agree with you, but I think it's great that she asked. She could have done this for months without you knowing. [ Reply | More ]

Op here: she also told my 6 yo daughter she was a weirdo and crazy. While I realize she may have been kidding, I think it's inappropriate to use these negative terms when a child is being playful and silly. [ Reply | More ]

Perfectly fine to say no though fwiw I have seen nannies do this in a way that seems harmless. Totally your call though. It's good that she asked. [ Reply | More ]

Nanny here. I asked for facebook, not instagram because there's no privacy on there (well, it's all or nothing and I have nothing because I post street photography). It's a pretty common thing for nannies to want to do, not across the board though. My current and former bosses all gave permission. Fine if you're not comfortable, though! That's why it's important for nannies to ask :) I don't post photos of my charge often, and I don't ever use his real name. My boss didn't specify the name thing, that's just my extra protection of my charge's identity. I also waited a couple months after I was hired before asking (and of course didn't post till then).

[ - ] I just tried this mask and my skin looks like a baby's butt. No joke. I did look like Jason from Friday the 13th though so you will look scary but so worth the results. I got the anti-aging one (I think there are several options) http://ooh.li/bd9ad82 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
