[ - ] I am staying in a hotel for a conference. Just now after I checked in, I was walking to my room, and a man followed me off the elevator and down the hall. I felt a little strange so I asked past my room without stopping and pretended to check my phone. He stopped 20 yards behind me, turned around, and walked back down the hall. Wwyd now? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Any larchmont (NY) moms on? Looking for advice... Moving out of the city to larchmont with a baby and 8 yr old. I'll need a nanny- do they drive in to work? Or do they take the train in? I want to avoid having to drag the baby to bring other DD to school or train, so I prefer walking distance to train to make life easier all around. Is that unrealistic? To walk to train and have my nanny either drive in or walk from the train to meet mr so I can take older DD to school and then head to the metro station.

[ - ] Re: 8th dd giving BJ to boy she isn't dating: The dominant teenage culture in Manhattan treats giving BJs to boys you are not in a committed relationship with as "no big deal". She is maybe a year or two ahead of her average peer. I'm not saying its ok, or right, but it is overwhelmingly true, in good public schools and at TT private schools. If you are expecting this not to happen, then you'd better have brought your child to be _extremely_ comfortable behaving differently than their peers. Few are. 30 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Here's the thing, the fact they want to show it early is good. It means your landlord is on top of things. And the cleaner/nicer you make it look, the faster it will go and you won't have randoms traipsing through your apartment anymore. So it's in your best interest to clean it and make it look awesome. Take anything personal or secure off the walls or fridge. Secure any valuable stuff. I'd ask the landlord to give you 24 hours notice before he/she shows the place. [ Reply | More ]
