Some of us struggle with our eating and weight more than others in general. Pregnancy and BF and the lack of sleep when kids are young are just additional factors to an existing struggle. I KNOW I gained too much weight when I was pregnant bc it was even harder for me to control my eating and to exercise and I stayed fat after kids bc I was too exhausted to eat well and exercise. Eventually I pulled it together. It wasn't so much an excuse (I never liked being fat) as the reason. Other women I know never really struggled with their weight, so pregnancy/baby were the only factors to contend with. [ Reply | More ]

Hunter admits they only get 70% right. So out of 50 kids, at least 15 are not supposed to be there and are struggling. They got in because they were heavily prepped or just pure luck. Testing 4 yr olds is pure crapshoot. Also once DC is in, you cannot counsel them out. So they become those myth lifers who do poorly in the end. [ Reply | More ]

There was a flurry of responses about not anyone's business, this happens all the time, ignore it bc nothing to gain, etc. Well...a few months ago the Board found out and they were both fired. It was a confirmation that there is a little justice in the world and should serve as a reminder to everyone out there - both men and women - who think nothing of these affairs but the fun and believe they will never get caught.
