[ - ] What's fair for paying for an evening babysitter's taxi fare? Used to pay because our sitter lived in Manhattan and we were in Brooklyn. We have a new HS aged sitter starting tomorrow night and he lives less than a mile away (in a safe neighborhood). Do we walk him home or offer cab fare? It's a 10-minute walk. We hired someone in the neighborhood in order to avoid having to pay the taxi fare. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I started going gray as a teenager. My mother plucked my grays until I went away to college and she couldn't do it anymore. Then came hair color. Semi-, demi- and then permanent color. I am about 90% gray all over. I color the roots myself every 3 weeks with professional dye. I get lots of compliments--even about highlights. I don't highlight my hair, but even my hairdresser says I have highlights, so I'll take it. It's so easy to do and I have done it so many times (hundreds of times over the years), that I think nothing of it. I just gather my supplies and bang it out. No big deal. [ Reply | More ]

(And btw, I did all the cooking, and it's not like she offered to help.). But the kicker was when our friend's mother had a second helping of food, and MIL looked at her and pointedly said, "wow, it looks like YOU were hungry." I am mortified.

Just extremely tantrums and the mother disciplines them very extremely as well and it usually leaves me feeling SO awkward.

three is a tough age. maybe drop the playdates down a bit. try to explain that it's not appropriate behavior and why (role play if possible) but again, some threes may understand, others not. [ Reply | More ]

These kinds of serious wartime movies depress me. They remind me how easily my grandfather might have been killed at 21, I see my own similarly aged sons in the faces of the soldiers, and lastly they remind me of what a sorry excuse for a man I wasted my life marrying, who has no concept of what real challenges in life are [ Reply | More ]

happiness doesn't come from material items. and when something traumatic happens that threatens what is really important in life, you realize this. a death of a child, a loss of a close family member, a loss of career, or overall general health. some people skate thru life (bless them) and never realize this, but for the vast majority, I have found, as you get older and live life, a shoe often drops.
