op: I'd never tip mailman. But our NYT delivery comes very early and I love it, so sort of felt like tipping was a nice idea. And he left a holiday card which was nice. even though I know he's looking for a tip. [ Reply | More ]

so a food delivery guy gets a few dollars for a one time delivery, but this person who is up at the crack of dawn every day to get you your paper in the morning deserves nothing? paper to your door everyday--that's a service [ Reply | More ]

I have to admit that we don't tip our NYT person but she's awful! Sometimes doesn't bring the paper or leaves it with our doorman. Sometimes brings it at 9am after we've already gone to work. [ Reply | More ]

well, what kind of present were you expecting? I"m an adult and it's nice to get them, but I don't ever expect presents from my friends. I'd just take it for a nice gesture and leave it at that. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] 2.9 yo DS has been potty trained during the day for about 2 months now. When and how do I stop the pull-ups at night? Not really in a rush, but don't want to lose momentum because he wakes up with a wet diaper so I don't want to send the wrong message? 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

night training is often a lot later, and many kids arent' physically ready for it until they are older. no need to rush it, IMO. [ Reply | More ]

If he's not waking dry, don't bother. I took off diapers when my dcs had been dry 10 consecutive nights. The first did this at 2.7 and the second at 2.6--but they're girls. [ Reply | More ]

I factor in tips as the cost of living in a doorman bldg - ditto that its part of the cost of having a nanny or housekeeper. It sucks because your situation has changed but I think you have to give at least $40-50 for the main people and $20 for the ones that don't do much for you at a minimum. [ Reply | More ]

I would switch back to pullups/diapers for a little bit - pood undies pretty much need to be thrown out. Maybe this would upset you less, and you would not get on this case [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My sisters husband is physically abusive, she called the police yesterday after he choked her they put him in jail and are still keeping him because of his poor attitude- waiting to see the judge. file a report. If you fear for your life, you can ask for a restraining order against him. A restraining order will order your husband to stay away from you. If you have children, in most cases, your best course of action is to file a restraining order and ask the court for exclusive use and possession of the marital home. The court will ask the abuser to leave. In some cases, it is just not feasible to stay in the marital home -- there are some people who have gone so far off the deep end that they do not think of the consequences of violating a restraining order. If you think your husband is that person, you should pack up the kids and yourself and get to a woman's shelter or find other housing arrangements as fast as you can. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
