[ - ] Single mom with 5 year old.Took him out tonight for T or T and left a very full punchbowl full of very awesome treats (cheetos) out front with a sign to Take One. We rounded the block and when we had the bowl was gone so I refilled. The second time around the bowl was empty, kids had ripped the sign, threw the table and cracked my plexi punchbowl with a large stone which they left inside it. My 5 year old was upset. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

That is upsetting. I am saddened to read this. Maybe explain that some kids might have been of an age that they were trying to "show off" in front of peers, not to take it personally, the culprits are insecure, maybe come from less than ideal homes? [ Reply | More ]

SB-V score is high enough for cutoff, so now I'm just worried about R2... 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

No prep required for R2, particularly if DC is in preschool or daycare. Arrive early, use the bathroom, and make sure your child isn't hungry or thirsty. Bring a book to entertain child. Only 1 parent permitted. Choose the parent from whom child will more easily separate. [ Reply | More ]

I understand the sentiment. There is something about NYC that makes you feel like a hamster in a wheel, more more more, you need more. And when you are young and energetic and the future is still wide open, there feels like a point to it, but after you get older, get married, settle into a pattern and a lifestyle, sometimes you feel like it might be nice to bow out of the ratrace and just enjoy what you have without feeling compelled to compare.
