Np, we had to try every. Single. Medication until we found focalin. We also needed night meds and Zoloft for anxiety. Maybe you can find the right combination. GL [ Reply | More ]

Ah. Did you keep her on the meds long enough for her to adjust? I don't have a kid with this. And was really unsure about medicating kids. But then my son became friends with a kid with ADHD. When they would play, I could start to tell when he needed his med. I would send him to his own apartment & mom medicated him. He would come back a new kid. Made me feel some kids really need meds. I mean you could do it for school only and let it go weekends and vacations. You need to find a doctor you trust. [ Reply | More ]

Easiest was 2 to 3 because I was already outnumbered. 0 to 1 was the hardest because you really can't appreciate how much things change until you are in it. [ Reply | More ]

I'm one of nine kids and my mother thought 2-3 was the hardest transition by far. I suspect it may have more to do with the personality of the baby than the number? Idk. Np [ Reply | More ]

For me, they were all equally as hard. Each child changes your life profoundly (at least I thought)- youvr already got a set routine and you have to make a lot of room and shift things around for a new little human. My #3 is now almost 2 and I'm constantly juggling/bouncing around trying to give each kid (and myself) all the love and attention they deserve... [ Reply | More ]

Going from 1 to 2 was the hardest. It prevented me from going from 2 to 3, even though my dc beg me to give them another sibling. 0-1 was a walk in the park in comparison. My two are 2 years apart. It would have been easier if they were 3 years apart. [ Reply | More ]

hardest 0-1 despite DC being very easy baby. a year of PPD didn't help. When we had him, we've been together for 10+ years and married for 5 so had the whole routine going. That all went out of the window. Not having another one. I love him to death but I find motherhood very difficult. If I am completely honest, I don't think it's for me. [ Reply | More ]

For me 0-1 was easy because I had a lot of time to spend on #1. 1-2 was so hard I gave up on having #3. The divided attention, the jealousy, the lack of paying individualized attention was too much for me. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Good morning ladies! I am in a dilemma - I bought a house and the neighborhood became trendy soon thereafter (kind of like Dumbo in the early 2000s). I know have the option of selling the house with a good profit and buying in a cheaper area and live close to mortgage free. Here's my issue: if I leave the neighborhood now, I will never be able to afford to move back. The location is very convenient and beautiful. New multi million $ houses are being built. The huge benefit however will be mortgage free living. What should I do? Realtor is coming today - he has sold several houses in my area for great prices in the last 6 months. Schools not an issue (commute would be 10-15 minutes longer). 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

if you can afford the mortgage, what is the problem staying? If you said you want to time the market downturn, I would understand, but that doesn't seem to be part of your thinking. [ Reply | More ]

Of course that's part of the consideration - if I don't sell now my next chance will be in 5 years or so. [ Reply | More ]

^^^But then again - the area might still have some upside potential. Maybe it will be even higher in the next upside cycle? And I will regret having sold now? The mortgage is somewhat expensive for us. We can afford it but it would be nice to have extra cash for savings and spending. [ Reply | More ]

Who knows, maybe the same thing will happen to the less expensive area you move to. Only you know how much being in the trendy area is contributing to your actual quality of life (which is important). [ Reply | More ]

I think that neighborhood is also improving. It helps that the city is growing (not in NY) . Otoh, real estate is extremely cyclical here and you really need to time the market. [ Reply | More ]

OP. It might not mean that much to some people because there won't be any walkability in the new area (although I never do the 15 min walk to the shopping area in my current neighborhood- I prefer to drive the 2 minutes), but I will have free public tennis courts half a block away from the new house. I could play tennis with DH or DCs after work. We are already taking lessons so this is clearly a consideration as well. I'm in FL so we can play 9 months per year excluding the summer. New house would be bigger with a pool too. [ Reply | More ]

besides the tangible risk she posed to the state (2000 emails with secrets on them, hacking attempts), it's breathtaking how casually she willfully lied as the news came out- "It was allowed" "There were no confidential emails sent" "I am cooperating with the investigation" [ Reply | More ]
