[ - ] Not a fake post. I am in our hamptons home on the water. My kids under 7 are watching a disney movie now and my DH is sitting in the dining room reading. While I am waiting for marinade. The hamptons is what you make of it and today there was a beautiful fair at the Churhc in east hampton that had pony rides and bouncy games. Yes we are invited to events but our family time of chilling could easily be done in NYC. Point is I LOVE THE HAMPTONS 13 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Sick of all these lies! It really depends on the temperament of your kids. If you have an easy-going kid who can nap anywhere, then this is no problem.

You can try to have any parenting style you think fits you, but your kid's innate temperament will shit on your philosophy. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Bicep has hurt on and off for a few weeks but is getting worse, not sure if it's something actually in the shoulder or in my neck (I have a slightly herniated disk but it's always affected the other side, not this one. I'm worried because I have a new job Monday that could aggravate it and it's unlikely I'd be able to see a doc at all next week. Acupuncture tomorrow if I can get it?
