Technically it's above $440k per year for NAIS schools, but in reality it depends on the school and is HIGHLY unusual. Most schools have small preschool classes and expand significantly in K and 1st. Preschool is to some extent a favor to legacies and families the school wants to attract and hold onto early. I don't know of any schools that offer it except to achieve diversity, and even then, it's often not needed because of the small class sizes. NYC has plenty of racial diversity where the families are also wealthy. Those are the people who get PS spots. [ Reply | More ]

I hate to tell you this (and I'm prone to this issue myself) but it's s delegation issue and women tend to be much worse at doing so than men are. You need to delegate more, not decide in advance that they dont have thr time so you need to do it yourself. [ Reply | More ]

I think it's complicated. Saying women "are worse" at it implies that women don't do it well. But the issue can also be that work cultures can fail to back up women who do delegate, leading to OP's problem. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Wallet was stolen recently (total pain). I live in CT and they require you to go to DMV in person to get a duplicate. The closest office is 30 minutes away, so I am looking at about 3 hours (at least) to deal with this. My issue is that I am nursing an infant, and for the past few months if I miss more than two nursings in a row I get horrible clogged ducts and have gotten mastitis. I don't want to bring a breast pump and pump at the DMV, and the idea of bringing an infant to deal with DMV sounds horrible. Website says if there is a medical reason, they can do it via mail. Does this qualify as a medical reason, or am I being whiny? 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

three ideas: 1. It's only once a year. Let DC pick 1-2 pieces/day for a week or so and enjoy. 2. Find a dentist that does a candy buy back. This is popular in w. coast, not sure about ny. Dentists give cash for the candy and send the candy overseas to troops. Take DC shopping to spend $ or talk about what to save $ for. 3. If DC is young enough, invite the Halloween Witch (or faerie) to come visit Nov. 1st. DC must leave candy pail on kitchen table and in the morning, it will no longer contain candy, but HW will have deposited a surprise instead. Surprise can be a new book/iTunes card/hotwheels car/dvd/whatever will put a smile on dc's face without going overboard (Bonus idea: feed it to DH!) [ Reply | More ]

DC holds onto it and rations himself to a couple of pieces/day. We didn't start with the trick-or-treating until he was about 6. Before that, there was a halloween parade we went to, and he'd get maybe a couple of pieces of candy. We don't buy much candy otherwise, so he holds onto it as long as possible.

I commute 45 min - one hour from Brooklyn. Either I and/or DH drop off in the morning (btwn 8-8:30), and then we have a nanny pick them up after school and take them to activities/play/etc. until one of us (usually me) comes home by 7. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My dh doesn't pick up the phone or reply to texts if he doesn't feel like it. He did it to everyone but me. We have been married 15 years. He is now doing it to me too. If there is an emergency with our kids he expects me to always be available and I will never be able to reach him. Great. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Are you considering someone with a $780k HHI "less fortunate"? Or are you just making the extraordinarily, stupidly obvious statement "people don't notice that they have more than people who have less than them"? [ Reply | More ]
