I don't think I would send my DD. If it was a specialized camp, e.g. dance/gymnastics/cheerleading I would send, but not until about age 12-13. When I was 13 I went to Europe for 6 weeks without my parents on a student trip--it was mostly seniors going into colllege too. [ Reply | More ]

you might be producing less so he knows that he'll have an easier time with the bottle - not definitely, but this happened to me. that said, I just gave up nursing at that point because it was 11 mos - this does seem early [ Reply | More ]

Hmmm. Are your periods normally light? I wouldn't think too much of it unless it is something different from the norm and happens more than 1 month in a row. If I've been stressed or worked out more than usual my period tends to be lighter. I would use some ovulation tests to make sure you ovulate. If you are, I wouldn't worry about it. GL!!!!

[ - ] Tryng to understand the G&T process: the "citywides" accept applications from all boroughs except Hunter, which does not). Then there's district-wide G&T programs. Then there's lottery-based programs which are not G&T, but are district-based. Is this correct? Thanks. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Hunter is not a DOE school, i.e. it does whatever it wants. Yes, city-wides are attended by children from all five boroughs. District G&Ts are for kids within the same district. Then you have option schools that are district specific and are by lottery. You got it pretty much right. [ Reply | More ]

That's ridiculous -- there are very few spots for G & T in citywide schools, and lots of kids in each district, so you aren't "out of luck". If you test for G & T and are above cutoff, you can attend a district gifted program (and there are some in every district). Or, apply to a lottery-based school in your district. But many very smart kids don't go to one of the 3 citywides. In Brooklyn, most kids who test as "gifted" and live in a decent zone attend their local school. [ Reply | More ]

NP: I think that poster is correct. I'm in District 6 (not a good district, as far as G&T/zoned schools go), and they are already eliminating one G&T program, so there's only one left, which is located on the northernmost fringe of Manhattan, pretty far away for most kids in the District.

The nanny doesn't sound unreasonably paid. Any way to make extra money on the side? I don't know what your profession is but could do freelance or work online or do something for a little extra income. The only other thing you can do is watch what you spend on: phone bill, cable bill, going to dinner etc and see what you are spending on and what can be cut back. Maybe reduce your minutes on your cell or get just basic cable. Don't run the AC 24/7. All of these things help. Don't buy diapers at the grocery store, etc. [ Reply | More ]
