There's a gym at Rutgers that they rent out on Saturdays. Separate room for pizza. But I can't say it's great for 1yos in particular. I thought people usually did a big restaurant thing for adults, if 1st bday is a big thing in their culture, or a little party at home [ Reply | More ]

How big is your budget? There is a famous furniture builder named Maloof. He made a couple of cradles which are works of art. I'll bet if you do a little research you can find some furniture builders in your area. I thought this one was something special: (http://castlewerks.blogspot.com/2008/04/jacks-crib-finish.html) [ Reply | More ]

true but atleast I feel like I have a chance. Unlike some schools I called which told me "no" just because I did not have a staff of friends dialing for me. Now that is truly ridiculous. Fast dialing, persistence parents get a chance and the rest of us don't? Nice selection method. [ Reply | More ]

I guess in hindsight it was something you could have discussed with your friend (if your dcs are walking together with you to school), but they're acting silly. Its not like you were giving your kid candy and not their's (or something like that) [ Reply | More ]

That is coddling beyond belief. What is wrong with society when a parent must consult with another over a scooter to make sure no ones feelings get hurt. Heaven help us when this generation rules the world. [ Reply | More ]

The only reason I would "consult" with another is if the kids are walking together and one on a scooter and one without makes for conflict, which could easily be avoided [ Reply | More ]

conflict cannot and should not always be avoided. Children need this practice, dealing with the simple little things, so they have the skills to deal with the big ones. [ Reply | More ]

OK, then they have no real beef. That's life. Different families have different rules and different tolerances for schlepping scooters. Me, I don't schlep scooters. Since the school won't keep them, the kids can't ride them. Other parents, like you, take the scooters home. No biggie. [ Reply | More ]
