[ - ] ...as a mother who was also widowed in my 40s, and was left to raise our 2 children by myself, I can say that THIS now, is the REAL leaning in...the taking on of 100% of the household tasks, instead of being proud of yourself for generously doing 60%; the "feminism" of being the mother and the father - the soft parent AND the tough parent, and trying to find the hard balance between the two; the realization of what it means to REALLY have it all and do it all; the revelation that the previous "leaning in" came from a place of LUCK and privilege 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Mr. Goldberg's premature death is also a reminder to everyone about prioritizing our time. In the end, we'll be glad to have had that dinner at home with our family than to have cleaned out our inbox. [ Reply | More ]

"Passed away suddenly" without further explanation, are usually code words for suicide, murder, or some form of a fatal accident. What happened that he passed away suddenly and why is there no information anywhere about the cause. Absolutely nothing anywhere. And if suicide, why would a fellow with such a successful wife commit suicide? [ Reply | More ]

Not only is the cause of his death not announced, but not even what country he died in. The couple was abroad on vacation. What country? If the authorities there were notified of his death wouldn't there be an investigation or autopsy and the news media be notified? Where is the body? Is it overseas or did his widow bring it back? Why did she rush back to the U.S. within some hours of the death with no announcement being made in the country in which it happened? Was she on a private plane or fly commercial? Why the delay from Friday night to Saturday on announcing his death. Why aren't reporters digging into this? Both Goldberg and Sandberg are public figures. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] So a couple Islamic Muslims tried to do a terror attack in Texas today, but an armed man shot them both dead. Liberals, you want to ban law-abiding people from carrying guns - why? How would a disarmed person have stopped this particular attack? Be specific. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

We would expect that the gunmen would have been unable to buy guns, or in the process of acquiring them they would have come to the attention of law enforcement and been thwarted before this point. [ Reply | More ]

I live in a country where there are basically no guns. I would choose the death of people at this convention, at the hands of two gunmen with whatever paltry weapons you can buy in a gun-free country, over the constant, low-level fear that comes from living in a gun-happy country. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I am new to the board so please let me know if I post this incorrectly. We are likely moving to NY from Los Angeles in the next couple of months. We lived in Manhattan about 10 years ago so I know the city, but that was before DC. I have no clue about the school options and was wondering if anyone has a good education consultant that they can recommend? We will likely look at private, but won't rule out public. We are thinking of looking in TriBeCa or Battery Park City so any schools you can suggest would also be greatly appreciated! 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

DC is 11 and going in to 6th grade. Our problem is that we will be moving in the next few months (by September for sure) and we have missed all of the admissions deadlines for private schools. He has not taken ISEE because he was scheduled to take it this Dec. Do any of the private schools accept late applications? Anyone know of any place with open spots for 6th? (Ok, don't laugh).

[ - ] Why is it so impossible for some to believe Kate walked out of the hospital ten hours later? I was not in that kind of shape but my SIL had her baby very early in the morning and was home by dinner time. She had a very easy natural birth. FWIW, she is built like Kate. I guess it is rare, but not unbelievable, right? 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I left the hospital same day after giving birth to DC #2. It's possible. I felt like crap, however, and certainly wouldn't have been up to wearing heels and a white dress. I have to believe she had an uncomplicated delivery, felt pretty good, wanted to get out of there to go be with her family... she had to leave the hospital, and leaving meant putting on a face and making a public appearance. Such is the price of that life. She put in the "face time," then went home and got comfy and cuddled with her little girl. The only thing I'm a little hung up on is how this shifts societal expectations a bit. No wonder my male colleagues were pressuring me to come back to work when I was only 10 days post partum. Birthing isn't easy, and maternity leave is not a terribly relaxing vacation. [ Reply | More ]

If she felt okay, then great. I was home within 24 hours of having both dcs, and would have left even sooner had I not had an epidural. Also, remember the clambering for information that happens around Kate and the poor nurse tricked into giving information last time that ended up committing suicide? Better to be home and snuggled in and avoid any drama. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Nanny had been with us for 3 years. Had dc #2 in December. Nanny was not happy with the salary increase and told us she wants to find another job. She continued to work for us until she found a new family a few weeks ago. I went through the hassle and added expense of finding a new nanny. I also helped her find leads, paid $ to post to msg boards, etc). Last week was her last day. We did not give a cash bonus but gave her what we considered was a nice parting gift plus a homemade card from DC#1. She sent a nasty text msg over the weekend saying she was hurt and upset she did not get any bonus. She said even fired nannies get something. Should we have given her a bonus? We paid her xmas bonuses and gave salary increases each year. We wanted her to stay but it was her decision to leave. 13 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
