Can you get botox? Drink more water, your wrinkles appear less prominent when you're hydrated, stay out of the sun, keep your hair trimmed and styled, exercise if you can even simple things like yoga will make you feel and look better. Also, if you can change your style, wear accessories but do not load up and look tacky. New clothes always help too. [ Reply | More ]

Same here. I have no advice for you. It sucks. You can make yourself look more pulled together but younger people just look better. And you don't want to try too hard. Just remember that your role at the school is as a parent, not as a mom-friend. As long as you are great to your kid, you're a success. In a few years, you won't even remember these mothers' names. Don't let your age hangups interfere with being the great mom that you are. [ Reply | More ]

She knows exactly what she's doing. She stacks her night that way because she thinks that if she says she wants to stay up to read, you'll say yes, whereas you wouldn't let her stay up to brush her hair or Facetime. Could you try saying "You can stay up until 9:30 this week, however, if you have any grumpy behavior at all, it goes back to 9?" Or how about manage manage manage- "It's 8pm now. You have an hour before bed. If you're going to want to read before bed, you should start now, because lights must be out at 9" [ Reply | More ]

If she is always pushing limits then you do not budge. I went through this with my now 16yo dd when she was a tween, occasionally between the ages of 10 and 12 she would get in these moods for months at a time. I always found myself saying no then turning around 5 minutes later and being like ok well you can do this for this amount of time but you may not do that and if you do that I'm going to do this. Sometimes I would follow through with punishments but most of the time I allowed for concessions and she was running the show. It took me a long time to realize this. It was my laziness, guilt, love whatever you want to call it that was causing this behavior, always giving in to her and assigning half ass punishments that were rarely completed. As much as it hurt me and as much as I just wanted to give in, I had to stick to my word. I knew that she was going to be a terrible teen and poor adult, she would respect authorities or rules or follow directions. So, if I were you and I was not that long ago, I would tell her she has 15 minutes to READ nothing else if she does something else it is lights out. I promise a couple weeks of doing this will whip her into shape and realize there are no testing boundaries, you do as you're asked or you do not get to do what you want. We have a rule that if my dd does something I don't like and I mean being rude or disrespectful not how she puts away her folded clothes, then she has to do something she doesn't like. At 16 we rarely have this issue, she is kind and respectful. Before her boundary testing occurred most of the time, maybe a couple weeks would go by where she behaved and then for months at a time everyday there was something. Now, maybe once every couple of months does she have to do something she doesn't like lol hope this helps a little. She's my only girl, I have 2 boys and she by far is the most difficult to raise.

[ - ] Obama did not make editor of Law Review based on his grades. 18 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
General Topics 03.03.15, 02:57 AM Flag

Change in Selection System Mr. Obama was elected after a meeting of the review's 80 editors that convened Sunday and lasted until early this morning, a participant said. Until the 1970's the editors were picked on the basis of grades, and the president of the Law Review was the student with the highest academic rank. Among these were Elliot L. Richardson, the former Attorney General, and Irwin Griswold, a dean of the Harvard Law School and Solicitor General under Presidents Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard M. Nixon. That system came under attack in the 1970's and was replaced by a program in which about half the editors are chosen for their grades and the other half are chosen by fellow students after a special writing competition. The new system, disputed when it began, was meant to help insure that minority students became editors of The Law Review. Harvard, like a number of other top law schools, no longer ranks its law students for any purpose including a guide to recruiters. [ Reply | More ]

The first sentence re election was for the position as president of the law review. This is different than the selection of editors. We do not know by which method he was selected to be an editor (grades vs. writing competition). However, having sat through the endless meeting to elect a president of the law review, I can assure you that the editors must have thought he was intelligent and would be a good president. There are so many editors vying for the position that no one is just giving it away. [ Reply | More ]

OBAMA HAS PUBLISHED NOTHING AT HARVARD YET HE WAS THE PRESIDENT OF THE HARVARD LAW REVIEW AND WORKED AS AN “EDITOR IN CHIEF” 50 HOURS A WEEK? Obama was chosen because of affirmative action and because he was a “minority student”. Obama was not chosen because of any published writing skill. No published work equals ZERO proof obama is a “skilled writer”. Obama seems to have had affirmative action help but there is NO evidence he EVER QUALIFIED for any help through his WRITING SKILLS! Obama ONLY qualifed because he was a MINORITY! This is why there is no record of any published works from obama while he was the “president” of the Harvard law review. [ Reply | More ]

I've gone to playdates in everywhere from a 1 bedroom house to a 7 bedroom townhouse and you wouldn't know by the way the moms or dads act. School is wonderful.

[ - ] My heart is against Ferber/cry-it-out, but taking 2 hours to put her to bed, only to wake up every 2-3 hours all night long is not sustainable either. She is 6 months and I feel like I need to do something. Anyone BTDT and can give perspective? Can you do Ferber and not harm your baby's sense of trust?

When I went back to work I tried to put her on a schedule with the nanny- but she is incredibly variable.

We are totally unscheduled. The only thing that ever happens according to schedule is bedtime. Other than that, we follow his signals, but we do generally know when he's ready for a nap (about every 2 hours or so). We should probably be more structured, but I just didn't feel it was necessary and he's an easy baby. It works for us. I agree with the people who said to read Weissbluth though. [ Reply | More ]

NP. My DB is 5.5 months old and I struggled with this too. Until the other week I was also feeding and doing naptime on demand, but I found it stressful never knowing if she was eating/sleeping enough or too much. Last week I started doing a consistent feeding/napping schedule, and it's much easier, and DB is much less fussy. Your DB may need a couple days to acclimate, but I would try a schedule again.

Read Ferber, read Weissbluth and figure out a plan. Has your DC shown any ability to sleep through night? I was lucky - both DCs started sleeping through night around 2 1/2 to 4 months. Granted the night was 10-5:30, but eventually got 7 to 5:30, then 7-7. I used a combo of Ferber and Weissbluth. The former when there was backsliding by DC #2 following illnesses and the latter to stretch the wake up time to 7 AM. [ Reply | More ]

I had two pretty bad sleepers so I am probably not supposed to give advice, but for us it was all wrapped around nursing. Both kids were used to nursing on demand which as some point is not great for them IMO. They snack, take the hunger edge off, get hungry, snack again....It can't be productive for sleep. When they were older, letting them night nurse was keeping them awake. If I did it over again, I would night wean much much earlier. Once I did they became good sleepers. So I would try to have bigger, but fewer feedings. I would try to phase out the night nursing past a certain hour (say 10pm.) I would try to get her to bed earlier (like 7pm actually asleep). We never did CIO and our kids are good sleepers now [ Reply | More ]

I was in your exact same boat. I can't stomach full CIO but my daughter was not sleeping well and I know how important sleep is to the developing brain (and for everyone). I do believe that babies need our help in falling asleep and that babies need to be parented at night as much as in the day but 2 hours to fall asleep seems excessive and is not good for either of you. I suggest finding a middle ground and work on a milder form of sleep training. I read all of the sleep books - the No-cry sleep solution, Weissbluth,Sleep Sense, etc and did a combo of them that felt right. I did a version when I would rock her until she was very drowsy and then lay her down (she would of course start crying) - I would leave and go back in to check/reassure at 2 mins, 5 mins, 7 mins, then 10 mins. I would reassure her but not pick her up. After three nights, she would put herself to sleep after I laid her down - it was so worth it and she never cried more than 10 minutes. Good luck. I know how hard this is. [ Reply | More ]

This. There was no point in reposting this unless you're excruciatingly insecure about your marriage, or you're a troll looking to stir the pot when it didn't take the first time. [ Reply | More ]

Men can mske their money after they get marred but not all. Some lose their jobs. Life throws curves. No guarantees. Not enough rich guys to go around. [ Reply | More ]

+1 I agree with OP there are indeed some of us who married with out a prenuptial agreement and over the course of the marriage dh starts making the big bucks. I make 275k and that's after 15 years in the same position. Dh made between 2.5mm and 3 mm last year, including bonuses. When we married 12 years ago I made 60k and dh made around 47k. I knew he had potential but honestly it took several company changes and 4 promotions for him to get to this point and neither of us expected to ever be this financially blessed. He is a brilliant man in almost every aspect except picking up his clothes after showering or changing and he lacks common sense often. He is always losing his keys, phones, wallets and just basic everyday things. He asked me a few days ago if "twerking" meant pulling your underware out of your butt crack when it is wedged in there.

Why do people assume prenupt is a bad thing? Sometimes it can give you more than what you would be entitled to. [ Reply | More ]
