My grandparents were pretty WASPY old school. Descendants of patriots and all that. They were a curious combination of having genuine antiquities behind glass in one room. But in the kitchen they had a whole wall where the phone was located where you could just write things there. In pencil. On the wall. They also had a lovely personal beach but the stairway to get their was totally crumbled cement and rusted rebar. For the record they were both eventually buried without embalming in wood caskets on family property in northern New England. all legally. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I have, generally, a great relationship with MIL. She is older and has paid for in whole all of her grandchildren's tuitions and camps. DH is youngest and we had one DC late in our lives. She has contributed 50 percent to all tuition. DH never asked, she offered, and the conversations about money since Day 1 have been only between MIL and her son, my DH... Today MIL called me and asked me how long we intended to keep our kindergartener in private because the half-tuition was expensive and she seemed incredibly annoyed. DH is blowing off our chat but I feel like we should remove DC from private and move to public. I don't want this. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My 2c: if you would not keep DC in private without MIL's help, and there is any question at all about whether that money is set aside for the entire time, switch now before DC will really be affected. Much better in K than in later years. Speak with MIL, tell her how much you appreciate her generosity so far and that you are sorry you had not realized it was getting to be difficult, and that you will make plans to switch DC to public for next year. (if you would do testing for G&T and it is too late, have an honest discussion with her about one more year.) if she back-pedals, I personally still would switch and would thank profusely and suggest that she put whatever she would like into a 529 plan for DC.

If you're not set on lipstick exactly, Fresh's Sugar lip balms are fantastic. I'm partial to the rose, but the coral is also nice. (I buy them for everyone, and my husband even steals my uncolored one all the time.) They're about $20 at Sephora (and Sephora also has a cute gift set of three mini ones for ~$30). [ Reply | More ]
