My son flapped his hands when excited. No biggie. Pointing with a finger, like all developmental milestones, can have a range of normal. I wouldn't worry. My doctor does an autism spectrum check starting at 15 or 18 months. You can ask yours if you're really worried, but this all sounds normal, especially that he has words and shows affection.

How is this accurate? How is a loan free? One has to pay back loans taken out for college, either on behalf of the child, or the child themselves have to pay back loans? Unless your kids gets into HYP there is no "free" or scholarship money for college for middle-class children. There are only loans. And needing those loans makes your child a less desirable candidate for admission. [ Reply | More ]

well, at most of the Ivies (and a few others), there are need-based options. They consider savings first, so technically, it is true that you could get more $ (in grants, not loans) by having saved less. Most of the Ivies are need-blind so financial needs would not be considered (except in cases of the super-rich). [ Reply | More ]

It's really hard to save for college when money is tight. I have a 529 set-up for both of my kids and when I'm really pinched, I try to find at least $25 a month to contribute to each account. It's not much, but it's something. Don't feel like you have to contribute thousands per month. In the end it adds up and the sooner you start the better. [ Reply | More ]

+1. And as much as I loved our nanny (we did a share with #1), if I had it to do over I'd do daycare. Our #1 goes to public and #2 will also, we both WOHM f/t, each kid gets $100 toward their college savings per month at this point. Hopefully when #2 goes into school f/t (next fall!) we can do some serious catching up. OP: you need to stop at 3 kids, if things are already tight! I love our own little unplanned bundle of joy (our #2) but she definitely caused us to have to rethink things, and take permanent steps to have no more babies. DH got snipped, he's had no problems since. GL. [ Reply | More ]

No, I knew. I was told by HR that she admitted it was just too difficult to see me every day and listen to talk about babies. I didn't think it was fair but I just said that I understood. The guy I went to work for was very well known for being demanding. I was actually his 2nd secretary since the one who had been with him for a very long time (an older woman) was wanting a shorter work day because she had a sick husband. She had been with him for 20 years, he was not letting her go, but he needed someone else. They brought in a temp for the first attorney who was still there when I left. [ Reply | More ]

It may seem unfair on the surface that a kid that gets a 99 gets in mainly because of the parents pushing, but it really is not. The kid get that gets 99 will probably get in and fail at some point in life if he/she doesn't learn to rely on himself/herself without the parents involvements. I have seen this happen all too many times. The ones that were able to attain some sort of academic success "all" due to the parents later all turn out to be good for nothing. The only way to sustain that success is that these kids need to put in their own efforts. [ Reply | More ]

yes, many times. someone stole my DH's CC number and went on a shopping spree at Target and adjacent fast food restaurants in Queens. They were smart and bought several $200 Target gift certificates and then probably used them right away so they wouldn't get cancelled. It was done with such a precision, I believe that the employee at Target was on it. And btw, the CC number was most likely stolen at a Starbucks on 23rd Street. When my DH went to pay for his coffee, the cashier claimed that card couldn't be swiped and that she has to take it to the backroom to input the data. 1 day later the Target shopping spree occurred.

She said "tentatively" and she's still tossing the full name around. [ Reply | More ]

OP: I def do not want to use Samuel as a first name. I dont really like the name to begin with, and we already have a pet named Sammy so that would be weird for all of us including DS2. [ Reply | More ]

OP again. I also love the name James and its somewhat in consideration for a first name, DH likes it too, but I think it sounds funny with our last name and I hate hate hate the nicknames Jim, Jimmy, Jamie, etc. I know there isnt much control over your child's nicknames so I feel like a middle name would be a safer way to avoid that [ Reply | More ]

I like Brendan better than Brandon. Brendan is a classic Irish name. Brandon is a classic trailer park name. [ Reply | More ]

My DH likes Brandon but thinks Brendan reminds him of a girls name/Brenda. I originally liked either version but I think DH POV may have poisoned Brendan for me. [ Reply | More ]

np-I don't think Brandon is trailer park. Plus, he'll be the only one in his class. There will be lots of Charles, James, Wills, Theodores, etc. [ Reply | More ]

No one uses a middle name. Go with the one with family meaning. Brandan David. [ Reply | More ]

+100 middle names are totally useless in the real world; use one that honors your family because no one else will ever hear it [ Reply | More ]
