[ - ] Am I crazy to think that that we will be able to live comfortably in a 1300 sq ft 2 bedroom, 2 bath, with a pretty small kitchen and separate dining room, once DB #2 comes along??? I know this is nice size apt, but will it be to cramped for all four? What about the kids sharing a room, will anyone get any sleep? We really need to stay here for at least 3-5 years. 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I would love this to happen because it would be the fairest way to assign seats. Unfortunately, this is not how the DOE explained it will assign the seats. They will go by percentiles and the higher the percentile the better your chance to get your first choice. [ Reply | More ]

No, that's not true at all. They are doing a lottery within each percentile, but they will go through all the 99s, then the 98s, then the 97s, etc., until they run out of spots. They are NOT randomly selecting from each percentile BEFORE the highest percentile's dcs have been placed. A 95 will get a spot at 116 when hell freezes over. [ Reply | More ]

that is what my divorce attorney told me as well. most people dont get divorced until the 7 year itch (that is those that make it past 1-2 years) so their kids are usually in elementary school [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] 2.5 yo dd is in a daycare/preschool right now- it's home-based, about 20 kids, super cheerful, clean and nice, but not very sophisticated as a 'school'. she got into another school that is much bigger, more sophisticated, but it's not as intimate/personal and it's kind of messy and disorganized (haven't returned my call for a week now), but in our neighborhood (where she'll go to public school). i was planning to switch her to the new one, but now i feel separation anxiety about the one she's in and happy in- her little friends, the known quality 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I'm a DH, and I really enjoy video games. I don't own a wii but I've played with one a few times. It's a lot of fun, but the novelty wears out pretty quickly, and then even becomes annoying when you just want to play normal games. If he doesn't have either the 360 or the PS3 I'd suggest one of those instead...or the iphone, but I've heard very mixed reviews on that as well [ Reply | More ]
