If it were me, if there were drinks for the adults, I think I would just relax and enjoy myself. I mean, it's the company that matters, right? I'd rather go to your party than one where everything seems oh-so-purrr-fect. I bet people had a better time than you think. You have strange co-workers if they told you you have "no couth".

[ - ] I am really stressing out about this. I have had negative birth experiences at NSUH and Mercy - both very controlled, where I was confined with EFM, IV, and unable to get out of the bed or even sit up in bed. Needless to say, my births were very long, and very uncomfortable. I was also separated from my babies for long periods of time whilst I was in recovery. I had thought my doctor was a little more progressive, and I thought times had changed with the knowledge that mobility and freedom of movement during labor makes for an easier, and healthier, birth. Nope. My doctor told me I will be in the bed, with the EFM and IV as soon as I am admitted! I am devastated! He also told me no birth plan - but to call Winthrop and ask questions! Because we have been through this, we have a few requests: mainly, freedom to move during labor, and the desire for the baby to stay with us, and not be immunized in the hospital. I do not think I am being too picky. I have a month to go, and now I am sooo anxious about my labor and delivery. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

There are not prep classes for Hunter exam that have exams - just general beefing up of skills. And BTW most kids who were prepped didn't get in because they lacked the creative writing skills that Hunter seeks. They take in a quota of those that excel in math to keep up their competitiveness, but are really seeking the kids who aren't prepped (relatively talented in math logic) but who show their own creative voice in writing (with good grammar and syntax, of course.) That can't be prepped in a course. If they don't have it naturally it's just not going to happen from a tutor. [ Reply | More ]

What's false? According to the DOE about 28,000 kids took the SHSAT this past fall. Only 5,391 were offered seats at a test-in Specialized HS (i.e. not counting LaGuardia here). Of that number, only just over 2200 got into their first-choice Specialized HS. It's not that hard to figure out that the majority of the test takers either never had a shot or never prepped, or prepped poorly compared to the kids who got into the schools they wanted most.

NP: I was just out in Flushing, there are TONS of streetfront test prep places in Queens, SCORE, KUMON etc, poor immigrants in Queens are FAR more likely to spend on test prep for specialized HS. They are also more likely to be laid back about elementary and keep kids in local zoned schools until it really matters, while investing heavily in tutoring and test prep for specialized HS. Take a look at the stats on InsideSchools for the top specialized HS, disproportionately high level students from Asian and Indian backgrounds. Lots of families that care deeply about education keep kids close to home in zoned schools while supplementing with tutoring and then when kids are older, they test in to Stuy, Hunter, Bronx Sci, Brooklyn Tech, and many good schools in Queens.

I LOVED it in theory and tried to use it for travel and when renting a car. I stopped using it b/c I feel like it is not as safe/easy to properly install as a regular car seat. It was great for the airport itself, DD was not comfortable in it on the plane, on some planes it was too wide. [ Reply | More ]

I agree with posters above, it is great in the airport but useless in the street. I also found that it is hard to pop and lock the wheels. I haven't found any other alternative though if you need to take a cab to the air-port and don't want to go without the car-seat in the cab. [ Reply | More ]

maybe that you can't wait for your baby to be born or that it's a beautiful day. maybe she doesn't give a shit how you are feeling but knows that if she doesn't ask you'll bitch and moan about her to someone else. [ Reply | More ]

most of the time when people say, "how are you," all they want to hear from you is "fine." [ Reply | More ]

So you have already assumed the role of martyr. I guess you do not want people to ask how L&D went or how you feel after delivery. Heaven forbid someone express their concern. [ Reply | More ]
