A lot of moms I used to be "friends" with were more or less that way because my kids liked playing with their kids, and there was a lot of compulsory interaction. Friendly, but more or less compulsory. You had to do something with your kids, and you may as well kill time talking to each other. Over time, they are more or less "friendships" but not based on anything you have in common besides the kids. Now that my kids are out of the house, these moms are still there but I have nothing to "escape" anymore. I'm just as happy with coffee and UB and getting housekeeping done at leisure as I am going out to breakfast with friends. Lots of us are like that. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] The end of my driveway looked like West Virginia this morning with all my old furniture/lamps/crap I put out to see if any pickers would bite. Clearly a Pinterest aficionado's dream as it's all gone! Must be a beautiful Saturday morning in the burbs, everyone is out :) 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

^^^"Critics point out that none of the few dozen Success Academy 8th graders who took the entrance exam over the past two years did well enough to get into one of the city’s eight selective public high schools. Although the test is difficult, and less than one-fifth of applicants are admitted each year, it is perplexing that no Success students, many of whom scored at the advanced level on the state exams, made the cut. Only 10 percent of students admitted this year were black or Latino (52 percent identified as Asian), and the wisdom of basing admittance entirely on this one exam is being debated in New York City."

[ - ] Ds always goes to the bathroom during his tutoring session even if I remind him to go before she arrives. How can I gently let him know this is not ok. That's a $10 bathroom break! 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It's only one hour though! And the tutor transitions between activities. Should I set a two min bathroom break timer? I think it's just an avoidance strategy! [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] None of my 12 and 10 yo DDs' friends like movies such as Star Wars, Xmen etc. is it that unusual for girls to enjoy sci fi and thrillers? I love them so maybe that's why they like them... 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The Star Wars movies are really bad, compared to other sci fi movies (bad dialogue, bad plot writing, bad acting, bad directing), so kids today are not buying into it the way we did in the 80s and when Episode I came out. Not liking Star Wars is actually a sign of good taste. X-Men isn't much better. Your kids grew up on the movies you liked, so of course they like them, but it's time for them to be seeing new movies with their friends and developing their own likes & dislikes, too. There are sci fi & thriller movies out now that are far better quality, and there are non-sci fi movies that they might end up preferring because they watched them on their own or with their friends, not with their parents.
