Poster above, UNC is not without its scandal--including rape coverup allegations (two female grads were the first to go after the university using the Title IX), football scandals too. My DCs are little now, but if they are able to get in to UNC in 15+ yrs it would be hard to turn down with in-state. But yes, very hard to get into from the major NC cities. [ Reply | More ]

I had my niece live with me for a year. It was a little adjustment in the beginning but she was a good citizen of the house and it was nice to have someone extra around in many cases. It all depends on the level of respect she has for what you are providing her. If it works out, you will have a very special relationship with her. These things become more important as you get older and she becomes more established in life. Young people sometimes need a leg up - if they deserve it then go for it. [ Reply | More ]

Well, that would be a loving and generous thing to do. I can speak from experience, as we have offered shelter to a variety of nieces and nephews, ranging from 2 month summer internships to 12 month "just got out of college and have no money" stints. Part of it was family expectation, part was sympathy for youngsters who want to come to NYC and don't have wealthy families to subsidize them. My advice, after doing this at least a half dozen times - be very clear about boundaries. Have a good long sit down with the kid and her parents and get a handle on everyone's expectations - will her parents offset some of the increased costs (food/utilities) to you, if that is an issue? How would you like her to be involved in your family life (church attendance? helping out around the house? watching the kids for an occasional date night/weekend away?)What are your expectations re neatness - does the cleaning lady pick up after her, too? What role is she comfortable for you to assume in her life - curfews? boys/guests/parties? How long exactly will this last? Assuming she falls in love with NYC ( I did at her age, and here I am, 30 years later!), can you make clear that you are happy to be a very defined launching pad, that if things go well and she secures paid employment, she should move forward with finding a place of her own by X 2016. Make a list, go over it with your husband, make sure you are both on the same page, and have a nice, unemotional and generous conversation that emphasizes how much you want this to work. I learned the hard way - one SIL no longer speaks to us, because we asked her son (who had mental health issues that were not disclosed) was asked to leave after a year. The others were happy endings, and I truly value having extra-close relationships with these young people. [ Reply | More ]

History Mom - when you think about it, the pilgrims probably ate shellfish. Oysters and lobsters, for example, used to be very populous in the northeast. And even if they weren't, I love shrimp! Happy thanksgiving. [ Reply | More ]

None of the attributes UB values. Instead: taking responsibility for her mistakes, admitting them, and apologizing unconditionally for making them. Then making amends. I find most older, UMC women to be incredibly defensive and cowardly when they screw up. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] DH neglected to add our newborn to the health insurance. This is after discussing it extensively including how important it was to get it done. I'm beyond furious right now. Anyone else do this and get it resolved? I'm so angry I can hardly see straight right now. Baby is added for 2015 but was not added in time to be covered for 2014 (ie hospital and all pedi visits so far). 31 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Ugh. Is it really that much though? Bc majority of hospital costs should be under your insurance. Also do you have a deductible, bc it might have been out of pocket anyway? But yes I would be pissed, especially with crazy post partum hormones [ Reply | More ]
