It doesn't get cornier than this: I think Step-Mom shows that there's no such thing as a perfect parent. Even though Susan Sarandon's character is an Alpha Mom to the extreme, she's still flawed. [ Reply | More ]

Obama is pretty far ahead in delegates right now, and Clinton's continued presence in the race is premised on the idea that something could happen to change that. Given that context, her mentioning RFK's death struck many people as a reference to the fact that the course of a presidential campaign can be altered by an unexpected development. [ Reply | More ]

you're naive or delusional if you can't/won't concede that there are white supremacists and/or militia type who are willing to shoot Obama before they'll stand for a black president. Hillary knows that, as does the secret service -- Obama received specific detah threats immediately after announcing his candidacy (that's why he was given ss protection). Hillary basically slipped up and admitted that she's hanging in on the chance that he'll be shot or some other calamitous event will befall him. [ Reply | More ]

At that age, there's really no advantage to trying to keep him awake during the day. Just keep him in as quiet and dark a setting as possible during the night. Also, have you tried putting him in a swing to get him to sleep. [ Reply | More ]

(I called the number on the back of the card once I got home and they explained this to me -- if I had known, I could have paid the difference first and then used the GC.)
