Not the OP, but often people have longstanding family plans that involve more than just the DC. have you never been in a situation where you had to quietly sit in another room with your sick child while the rest of the family engages in an activity? I'm assuming the child isn't a newborn. [ Reply | More ]

OP here - no we'll definitely go. Canceling doesn't make much sense. There's his siblings and us and we want to see extended family and not sit home all weekend. And the sick one seems fine when on Tylenol. It just makes everything harder of course. I feel bad for DS too (he is 4). Hoping he sleeps in the car. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I am a single mother, without a lot of money. I want to bring my mother up to New York cause she’s alone and can’t fare well on her own (she doesn’t have much money either). Is there a way to do this? She would need her own place; are there any affordable assisted living places in or close to Manhattan, which could make this a possibility? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Sorry OP, it's tough. I've been trying to work out the same thing for my father for the last year, and in terms of assisted living situations in the city, they all are very expensive. What sort of insurance does your mother have? Does it cover some of these costs? I've checked out Atria on 86th street, Hallmark, Esplanade, and some further out of town, like the Osborne. None of them ended working out for my father as during the search, his health declined so that he is now in a wheelchair, and most of them only take people who can walk unassisted. I think there are some further out of town that are cheaper, but I haven't got to them yet. I've also looked at some nursing homes, but found them pretty grim. I have been told, however, that the Isabella is quite nice, and that's next on my list. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My very rude, loud, physically aggressive 9 yo nephew who never misses a chance to tell someone how much better he is at something is not so nice to my boys (esp my 8 yo ds). There are 7 cousins between me and my sisters and we see each other a lot. He's always trying to exclude my two boys who are the youngest of the bunch and is vocal about who he wants to sit next to at meals and such. My sister tries to deal w/ him but, she gets worn out (he is her 3rd) and can be a bit hands off imo. I know my ds gets his feelings hurt throughout all of this but, I don't know how far to go to control the situation. Is it just survival of the fittest w/ cousins? If these were friends I would just pull back and not hang out as much - hard to do w/ family that you actually enjoy being with and they all live very close. 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My sister's DS used to be a jerk too. Always first, had to have the most, best at everything etc - you get my point. Thankfully he's matured and at 12 isn't nearly as bad as he was at 8 but I really think that it's as much personality as it is lack of discipline or parenting. I don't have any answer's for you except that things will get better and maybe there is someone else in the group your DS can spend time with. [ Reply | More ]

Manage your child's expectations. Tell him he can't change other people, hi is only responsible for his reaction, make up a code word between the two of you so you can secretly let him know you are aware of the cousin being mean, etc. you don't manage this - you teach your child how to deal with life. And yes, it's normal boy behavior to have a pecking order [ Reply | More ]

OK, that's decently tall. Where do you come across all these men who are even taller? You cannot be in NYC. [ Reply | More ]

Reading this I feel really lucky that I'm not attracted to tall men. I know it's totally against the norm, but it leaves a lot of otherwise great guys available! [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Just a PSA. Somehow our home phone number has been leaked to some lists where we get a lot of scam calls. Like the one from Texas where a woman told me I had been left money in a will and from the "chimney cleaning service who will be in our area this week." They call spoofing local numbers so sometimes I pick up accidentally thinking it is school related. I just looked up this last number that called a half hour ago and found out they call to do "energy audits" where they first make an appt. by asking when you are NOT at home so they can be sure to do one when you are there - then after they go through your house they now also know when you're gone. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I have constant scam phone calls. Like 6 to 10 a DAY. Have been on Do Not Call for two years. Most are robocalls, but a few years ago, we were getting very scary calls from Jamaica. The last call from there was about "business" my dh apparently had with "a man of the cloth." I lost it and told the guy I was calling the cops and the calls stopped. After that, there were daily collection agent calls from Mrs Jones and Mr Smith. We have no debt and did check credit rating to ensure there wasn't fraud involved. [ Reply | More ]

The latest is the Census Bureau. Caller ID says Census Bureau and number is on their website, but they call at weird times and the callers seem kind of "off." We've hung up on them twice as they plumb for info. [ Reply | More ]

I'm really glad you mentioned this- I have recently been getting a lot of calls from strange area codes. I thought they were bill collectors at first, but I checked my credit report and there are no unpaid bills, no cards I didn't know about, nothing. [ Reply | More ]

OP I really think there is some list that circulates with the people who do these things. That's why the do not call list doesn't work. The others we get are American red cross, breast cancer research, police and fire funds, pediatric cancer. Some are apparently just charities that are super aggressive (red cross calls 2x a day) but the chimney/energy/money and even police/fire funds are scams. [ Reply | More ]

I get these even at work. Almost every 30 min and from a NYC area code. Either I owe IRS a lot of money, or I won 5 billion dollars, or my laptop has a bug that need fixing remotely. They get quite creative lately. [ Reply | More ]

You could be right. It mostly comes across with the friends of my kids and the people they date. I pretty firmly believe I know bad news when I see it. Usually I am right, though. Most kids from bad backgrounds stay that way. If you want to prove to me that you are different, show me. [ Reply | More ]

I took the trailing spouse role to my wife because I thought it was what "good men" did these days and it's turned out to be a pretty bad decision for me. It turns out I didn't really want to spend my time chasing two kids around by myself while waiting for her to come home when she can. [ Reply | More ]
