[ - ] The nannies on this board is too ridiculous! They don't know how to follow household directions! If a mom says no bottled water, it means NO BOTTLED WATER. If she says don't use the master bathroom, that means DON'T USE THE MASTER BATHROOM. How hard is it to follow directions? If you don't like it, then quite and get yourself a job else where. Just because I buy my kids bottled water for emergency use, it does not mean you can freely drink it even after I said not to. Just because I lay out my eye cream on my vanity counter, it does not mean you can use it. GET IT?! MORON! 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Yes, and I just gave birth to my birth control baby. If you have a positive test then you are positively pregnant. [ Reply | More ]

You certainly can get pregnant on birth control pills, they like all methods have a "failure rate." And pills won't alter the reliability of a pregnancy test, different hormones at issue. [ Reply | More ]

which school? Basically, there is a lot of "exploration" time during the day but each material (books, blocks, legos, chalk etc) has to be taken out, used and returned in the manner expected. It's lovely to have kids develop their interests, but can lead to uneven development (DS was a great reader lousy at fine motor) [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Do you think Sasha and Malia will be inclined to take on white boyfriends? I can kinda see them both gravitating to white JCrew catalog male model types. I suspect that there will be pressure from the Whitehouse to find a Dante DeBlasio type, though. So sad :( 74 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
