[ - ] Am I out of line? I just learned accidentally dh is taking me for a six-day vacation in one week. It freaks me out. The dc's, both under 4, don't know yet, I have appts on my calendar for that time, we are flying somewhere and he hasn't gotten life insurance or signed our will yet. Is it weird for me not to feel totally thrilled? 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I did an online will back when we were going away without DD. I had a friend witness and keep a copy. I figured it was better than nothing. Other than that, just relax and enjoy the trip. Really, you need to just relax and think optimistically that nothing is going to go wrong. [ Reply | More ]

Thank you very much. Are they open all summer? And we aren't sure what schools to list to send results to - dc going into first in sept (public) and we would be applying for second grade in private. We have no idea how dc will test or if it will be worth it to apply to all the schools for an off year with a bad score, kwim? Can we just make up one school we don't really want and then add others later if scores well? [ Reply | More ]

it was the beginning of a miscarriage. About a week or two later there was serious blood. I went to my ob/gyn immediately and he did blood work that was positive for pg but the numbers were low and never came back up and then the bleeding. I am 20wks pg today so it has no long term ramifications. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] DH is very handy but he always rushes into repairing stuff in our apt. and then it looks sloppy. I justs woke up this morning and he had fixed something in our kitchen that we just spent a lot of $$$ having redone! It looks awful too. How can I get him to count to 10 and wait before he jumps in.

[ - ] Anyone looking for a FT live-out Nanny on UWS or UES? We’re leaving NYC and returning to Europe, and it is breaking our hearts to leave behind our brilliant nanny, Felicia. She has looked after our daughter for the last two years (since she was four months old) – Felicia is very caring, kind, patient, loving and extremely attentive to our child’s health, safety and development. Our daughter knew all of her letters by 22 months, and is ahead of her peers in language and general problem-solving; but most importantly she is an extremely happy, content child. Felicia is a Non-smoker and non-drinker. Comes from a very stable and nice extended family. Strong network of other nannies and children in our area (UWS). Our daughter has many friends, and has developed good social skills, thanks to Felicia. Keeps our apartment in immaculate condition and is very flexible when emergencies arise. Extremely reliable; she has never unexpectedly missed a day of work. Excellent references (including ourselves). If you’re interested, please email me at killyclug@gmail.com). She is looking to start a new position in early August. 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] I think step-parents are worse than ILs. College friend is throwing me a baby shower in DC suburbs. Very small - less than a dozen people, including my sisters, mother, cousin and 8 yo niece. My stepmom (of 20 years btw) has told my dad that she is "uncomfortable" going with "all" my friends and that he needs to come with her. I'm not sure why she isn't uncomfortable bringing an uninvited man to a baby shower! I don't care one way or another if my dad shows up but I'd prefer my stepmom just not come instead of causing drama. Ugh! 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
