[ - ] what do you think about this job interview situation? had 2 interviews for a great job at a cable network - my dream job actually. they said they would know by the end of this week and there were 10 candidates. today i saw they just advertised for the same position on a major job website. i was sick about it so i called HR, and she told me that while i am still a top candidate and the boss spoke highly of me, they are expanding the search, and the job probably won't start for 2 months. I'm so bummed but don't understand why they would still tell me I'm a top candidate. Would HR just lie to me, why wouldn't they just tell me I'm out? What is really going on here? 13 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I guess I am saying that testing a 4 yr old isn't as reliable, but also that admission later is based on so much more than test scores. A kid can test well, but be a total slacker or test ok, but be really driven...so I think getting in later is harder because a student is really judged on more criteria. [ Reply | More ]

Yes I am. If you look at Prep for Prep's website, you will not that it is for AA, Latino, and Asian students and that they provide financial aid for qualified families--many times full tuition, but not bus transportation. I have to say that the kids whom I have met at our school who come from this program really need this opportunity. They come from terrible neighborhoods with terrible schools and a lot of pressure not to be a good student. Some show an astounding level of maturity, responsibility, and leadership qualities that I don't think I possessed until I was well into college. Generally, they have gone to schools afterward that many on this board consider TT. It is a great program. [ Reply | More ]

It varies. Some kids are very deep sleepers, sometimes it is stress related and sometimes continuing with a pullup after a certain point just does not encourage them to get up and go.

So you don't mind other kids waiting to play with the swing or an equipment your dc has occupied for 20+ minutes? [ Reply | More ]

??? -- no, i agree with poster above who's fed up with annoying ''my kid's the only one i the park'' moms expecting everyone else to roll over and ''share'' their stuff merely because the annoying mom's kid whines for it [ Reply | More ]

Hah! I am talking about crazy moms who pay no mind to a line forming by the swings (totally cut in line) and take over for 20-30 minutes when there is a very long line of kids waiting to take turns. Everyone hates you. [ Reply | More ]

I have never seen anyone take 20-30 minutes on the swings. you are the freak. probably only 5 minutes passes before you are ready to blow a gasket. I linger on purpose when I see your type hovering and pacing. hate it. you are also probably the type who keeps repeating to her kid. its almost your turn now. these people are getting off soon and on and on. the minute I hear that kind of pressure (and its usually seconds after my dc has sat on the swing) I am in slow motion. love to see the vessels popping.

While I don't go into slow motion and I think that is p/a of you, ITA with the rest. It is the parents who get impatient... not the kids. Bring bubbles and chalk and your kid will wait happily with you. [ Reply | More ]

My kid loves the swings. We wait patiently for our turn and then he can swing as long as he wants. Wait your turn or go find something else to do. [ Reply | More ]

I had twins 3 years ago... all during my pregnancy, the twins were measuring the same and w/in 1 oz. Around 7 months, this suddenly changed - twin a was measuring 1 lb heavier. They sent me for all kinds of studies to make sure twin a wasn't taking twin b's food, blood supply and monitored me closely to make sure it didn't get to be bad enough they would deliver both babies early. Have they done this with you? [ Reply | More ]

^^^ fwiw - my boys were born 37 weeks 5 days at 6lbs, 13 oz and 5 lbs, 15 oz. Good luck - I know it's scary, but hopefully your doctors will watch you like a hawk and intervene if it will help. [ Reply | More ]

Fun for dc and pretty painless for me. Round 1 was like a mini-music class, Round 2 took all of 15 minutes. They just check if children have a good ear, love music, sense of rhythm, etc. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I am so overwhelmed! My ex is 3k behind in child support, he is a contractor and got stiffed by someone, apparently. I am behind on bills and in debt waiting on this $$$ from him. I am looking for a new job and the prospects kind of suck. I don't know what to do, I can't sleep at night and now camp tuition is due. I need dc to go to camp to look for new jobs etc. Anyone have any financial or any other advice? I feel like there is no hope at all. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Our soon to be 6yo dd recently started wearing underwear at night instead of a pullup. We have been waking her once at 11 pm to pee and for three weeks she did great. Now she has started wetting the bed before we wake her at 11. Aside from restricying fluids at night, any other tips? Should we just go back to pull-ups for the time being. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
