bank. If its too late, then you can give a cross necklace or a charm, or a St. Medal for a boy, or a childrens bible, or a real leather bound bible, or a collection of childrens prayers, stories or a cd with some christain lulabies, or a classic gift like a teddy bear, or a collection of classic books, like Beatrix Potter or Pooh (the real ones) [ Reply | More ]

Always wondered where you get a bond too! I think that is a really nice gesture and looks like you took time instead of just writing a check. My Uncle always gae us US Savings bonds when we were kids, and that way we couldn't spend them for 10 years or something. I remember cashing them in in college! [ Reply | More ]

Swinging is usually done with other COUPLES - no solo "activity". The other version, each member of a couple is allowed to "date" on his/her own, and have sex separate from the primary realtionship. [ Reply | More ]

Here's my guess: Her husband is rumored to be having an affair with a 25-year old woman with red hair. SJP does not want a divorce, and he is being upfront with her about his outside relationship. SJP has the option of taking a lover herself. (or maybe she has already - if so, good for her.) [ Reply | More ]

General Topics 08.02.08, 10:31 AM Flag

most accurate test would be the day you miss you period, but with the newer tests they say 3-5 days before your missed peroid, that said, at 5 days before missed period the results may give you a false negative, unless you know already that the fertilty drugs can effect the results and give you some kind of false positive. I'd wait it out until 2 days before missed period, that way you don't spend tons of dough on pg tests...unless you're loaded, then hell, start 5 days before. [ Reply | More ]

The SICM is great - we go there a lot b/c it's usually uncrowded (though they have a summer camp and it may crowded during summer days due to them, we haven't been this summer at all). The SI Zoo is okay, it's cute for little kids, but also has a good reptile exhibit (if you're into snakes and lizards). The SI Zoo membership can get you into lots of other zoos as well, including Turtleback Zoo in NJ where we've also gone (nice little zoo there). I've been to a LOT of Children's Museums over the years, and SICM is up there with being one of the better ones, it's quite large. CMOM is good, but I hate how terribly crowded it gets. Stepping Stones is okay, little small. Chicago has a great Children's Museum. My kids like the Atlanta Children's Museum. NJ Children's museums are just okay, very well worn. My kids have a good time in them. Don't ever bother going to the Community Children's Museum in Dover, NJ. [ Reply | More ]

OP: sorry I didn't see the responses earlier but dd had very enlarged tonsils (all the time) and dr felt they were interfering with normal breathing and swallowing. we didn't have a problem with frequent infections, though. dd had partial tonsillectomy, so recovery is supposed to be a lot easier, but I think I am undermedicating her.
