It is more interesting and complex than that and cnabe addressed in an interfaith family, but more problematically if either faith is part of a fundamentalist interpretation. [ Reply | More ]

very well said. We are in fairly similar situation. We also have bilingual children. They love having both heritages both culturally and from a religious standpoint. They understand that some traditions are associated with one and others with the other and are not "confused". Totally agree that there is much to find in common and that it is a choice: find the commonalities rather than focus on the divisions. It doesn't have to be mutually exclusive. [ Reply | More ]

I agree with you- and while "taking it to a higher level" might sound good when you read it - it does not address that people who are religious practice a religion. Being spiritual is not the same thing. Not saying one is good, one is bad, but they are not the same. [ Reply | More ]

Listen, Darling. You do what's right for you and do not bother listening to a bunch of biddies tell you this or that. Life is large. It's even has more people in it than Christians and Jews! Imagine that! Keep your sense of humanity and humor.. find out what means something special during this beautiful wintertime. Hall out the holly and the menorah.light lights. tell stories and have special foods like gum drops and latkes. in other words. do NOT listen to old fools tell you this or that..listen to your heart and to your husband's heart.

She was telling her friends about them as a white girl walks by who then stops and asked innocently "How can you afford them, you are black".

Of course we are not all poor, but the fact is that a racist person does not see middle class black people as the norm, they continue to see them as the exception. That is the definition of racism. Holding on to prejudged beliefs based on race, not based on reality, not based on actual facts. It's great that you and your kids live in reality and do not judge people based solely on race, but sadly there are many people who still do, and worse yet, many who do it without realizing it. That was my point. [ Reply | More ]

You are right on the money. I want to add that I think punishing the girl could make her more racist if that is the case for her. Her immature attitude could force her to blame black people.

You missed the boat. You are not of childbearing age anymore. You'll be a burden on the medical system and then your children. [ Reply | More ]

Give me a break. My great great grandmother had my great grandmother at age 41 in 1883. Women have been having babies in the 40s forever (just that they were generally their last babies of several). [ Reply | More ]

I think anyone at the age of 42 ttc has the ability, the funds, and the resources to be an excellent mother. In my line of work I see young women every day with no job, living on welfare, having baby after baby, just to get a bigger paycheck, with no intention of taking good care of those children....now who's the bigger drain on the medical system and the community?

Forget IUI at your age. Go straight for the IVF. Every egg counts at your age. I wouldn't wait for any tofu diet results either, start now. [ Reply | More ]

IVF - DON'T WASTE TIME ON IUI. 42 IS PRETTY OLD SO YOU NEED IVF AND THE BEST CLINIC. I AM 43 WITH ABOUT THE SAME NUMBERS AS YOU AND HAVE HAD 6 FAILED CYCLES AT CORNELL. IT'S NOT EASY AT OUR AGE. NOT TO DISCOURAGE YOU YOU - YOU STILL HAVE A CHANCE JUST DON'T WASTE TIME ON IUI. GL TO YOU FYI GO TO DR. DAVIS AT CORNELL [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] What are your own Moms doing with their lives now that you've grown up and have your own lives. Have they taken up painting? Perhaps they've taken a lover. What do you admire about them? What makes you crazy. My own mom died young, (64) She was a reader and was charming and a delightful wit. I miss her. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

not much age difference between us. i think she gets freaked by my success as I get older and she has to create elaborate "realities" where she claims her life is better and better and better and better than any one else's. but that's enough about me, she's want to talk more about herself now...

My mother is fighting cancer and still working at age 70. I admire her, but of course she has cancer from 50 years of smoking and about 30 years of drinking, much of which was done during my childhood. She likes being a grandmother, but she doesn't have much energy to give them. [ Reply | More ]

Mandell mom here: administration is very controlling but the teachers are excellent, the curriculum advanced, and dc is thriving. Really nice, down to earth families in K, but the nursery school seems a bit buttoned up. For the most part you can avoid the admiistration and the 10 emails a day. [ Reply | More ]
