You and DC are taken to Jane Arnold's office. Mrs. Arnold is the head of Admissions. She sits on the floor with DC and Judith Blanton, the director of the school, sits on the couch in the room and talks to you. Look at Mrs. Blanton during the conversation and do not get involved in what is happening on the floor, unless asked. It is a test for all three of you. [ Reply | More ]

the child will be sat on the center of the floor. a series of swatches of several different coverings for wall and sofa will be shown her. she will be asked to pick the appropriate wall and chair covering. she will be given a list of destinations for resort and ski. she will be asked to pick the most desirable. at no point during the evaluation are you to stop smiling. you are to drink TWO cups of tea during the interview and dress appropriately in very expensive designer clothing.

Jane is very warm and sweet with the kids. She will play with your child with you and the room. At the end of the interview she will take a photo of your family so she rememebrs the interview and the child (my guess) and if you go to the school it will be on the board when you first come in when school starts. It is very welcoming. My advice is to be nice to your husband. I think every school notices when you shoot each other dirty looks in interviews. [ Reply | More ]

He may have slid into the scheme but he certainly could have slid out. He could have maybe did a little scheming until such time he could go back to honest investing and business dealings. There is no rule that says because you are doing something illegal you have to continue being illegal. This man was head of Nasdaq I think.

If you have a bad back, you should definitely just get a double. Look into all the ones you can add a toddler seat to. P&T isn't the only one. Much easier than pushing a stroller + board. The Mountain Buggy side-by-side double isn't that wide, either. [ Reply | More ]
