You can't expect that someone is going to treat this like they're family, because they're not. It *is* just a job for them (as it should be, in any professional relationship). Playdates could be for kids or nannies, depending on age and temperment - you may be overthinking this. [ Reply | More ]

No. If DB is sick and you take them on a play date, that is purely for the nanny. This puts both kids at harm and yet i see it over and over. It's a job and I agree they won't love the same way but the whole point of the job is to take care of the child. [ Reply | More ]

Even if the CC people are friendly, they are their kids will run off every weekend to their kids. Many CCs have "minimums" so they are encouraged to eat there a lot. [ Reply | More ]

I've always had Sony, not the XBox, but without Live you won't be able to play online with friends. Most games nowadays can be played both solo and online; the bulk of play for me is online, but your DCs may be different. [ Reply | More ]

Xbox Live is a must. It will allow your children to play online with/against their friends and other players. And with the headset they can communicate with each other while playing. It was confusing to me in the beginning but my children figured it out immediately. Remember, Xbox is Microsoft and they are not known for being user friendly. Sometimes I wonder who Microsoft uses for their focus groups...the testers and the testees must be aliens. [ Reply | More ]

FYI, if your DC is very young, please monitor their XBOX email. If your dc starts playing online, they will start getting friend requests from wack jobs. If they are too good at a specific game, they might get threats. My DC was pretty good at Titan Falls, started getting threat bc he was killing off the same people online over and over again. Remember to keep an eye out. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] A thought for the holidays. Over the weekend, I had some time to spare and went to an Asian massage place in my neighborhood. On impulse, I brought a box of Duane Reade chocolate for the staff. Their responses were out of proportion: one gave me a big hug, one looked as though she might cry, and the third made us cups of green tea. In the best UB tradition, let’s all try to do a Random Act of Kindness some time this week. And happy holidays. 21 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
