[ - ] According to "Wednesday" Martin, the WASPy women on the UES are just a bunch of alcoholics who depend also on psychotropic drugs! "One of Madison Avenue’s most popular spots, she writes, is the AA meeting held in the church between Ralph Lauren and Prada. Problems such as alcoholism and anxiety, however, are rarely discussed." http://nypost.com/2015/05/24/inside-the-bizarre-life-of-an-upper-east-side-housewife/ 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

We refused about tons of times initially because DH only had surfer shorts and T-shirts and I only had bikinis and I know that is not proper CC dress. Now we have little DC who likes the pool and beach so I fixed DH up in Golf shirts, kaki shorts with sailing belts and goofy flower VV swimshorts with a rash guard and I got the standard 1 pieces and coverups. We still decline sometimes because some friends live all the way in the Hamptons and we both WOH and it is not a restful weekend. Going with friends to CC is also annoying because they have to say hi and talk to everyone and you stand around a lot. [ Reply | More ]

breastfeeding doesn't protect against MMR, don't listen to that poster. There's no harm in it, but the benefits decrease as the child gets older when they've already developed immunity just from everyday germ exposure. And nutritionally, if your kid is already eating a variety of solids it's not giving him that much extra nutrients. But it can be comforting to the baby, so just stop when she naturally loses interest. don't worry about it so much. [ Reply | More ]

OP - thanks. This is exactly what I thought. I think we'll probably be done in the next few weeks. She does eat lots of solids and milk and her immune system is great - she has never been sick!

Mine kept up the bedtime nurse for quite some time after he was weaned from the rest of it. There was definitely comfort involved as well as whatever nutritional benefit was coming with the milk. To be honest, at the time I had a very demanding job, and I didn't fight this time we had together--it was very relaxing for us both. I also realized that it saved us that stage of giving him a sippy cup before bed; when he truly was weaned, he had his last drink with supper, which probably helped him when it was time to give up the nighttime diaper.

I started cooking lasagna in loaf pans (may need to make several) instead of large baking dishes. Much easier to cut and dish out. I slide leftover noodles vertically into the sides of the loaf pan after it's been assembled. (I use the noodles that do not have to be boiled first.) [ Reply | More ]

Italian mom here: I hope you are using no boil noodles first of all (Barilla and DeCecco have great ones) then if you can, buy fresh made ricotta, it's not as watery as the supermarket kind. Also, make sure your tomato sauce is not watery, I let it cook for over 1hr. And use fresh mozzarella (cut in small pieces). I promise you'll get good results. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I guess the Chinese are seriously smarter (not just a little) than Americans: A Chinese IT outsourcing company that has started hiring new U.S. computer science graduates to work in Shanghai requires prospective job candidates to demonstrate an IQ of 125 or above on a test it administers to sort out job applicants. big data charts graphs analysis woman user Survey: Big data interest still growing It's not all positive, however: Security issues and problems with some existing products leave room for READ NOW In doing so, Bleum Inc. is following a hiring practice it applies to college recruits in China. But a new Chinese college graduate must score an IQ of 140 on the company's test. An IQ test is the first screen for any U.S. or Chinese applicant. The lower IQ threshold for new U.S. graduates reflects the fact that the pool of U.S. talent available to the company is smaller than the pool of Chinese talent, Bleum said. 18 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

^^ by the way, look up the kind if interview questions google gives and Microsoft used to (don't know about now). No one with 125 IQ could get through those interview. Many companies hiring SEs give logic questions and puzzles which is actually better than IQ test for this particular job [ Reply | More ]

Last year I was visiting my ILs, who live 3000 miles away. I was three months pregnant with a 9 month old baby and was recovering from a serious bout with the flu. Very weak and exhausted. When I arrived at the in-laws, they had cleared out of master suite, put a crib in there, and insisted I stay there so I could rest. I protested, of course, but they were so concerned and hospitable. Anyway, that evening I overheard my visiting SIL loudly chewing out her parents for allowing me to put them out like that. MIL immediately shut her down, but I was mortified and have been icy to SIL ever since. (She is a bitch.) [ Reply | More ]
