[ - ] So I got flamed earlier today for asking how I should train my nanny (watch her do basic things for DB on first day and explain how I like things done). Ppl said things like "LOL if you have to train her to change a diaper, you shouldn't have hired her." Ignoring UB, I watched her change DD's diaper- and she wiped back to front. I explained to her why you shouldn't do that, and she was open to the feedback. BTW, she has 10 yrs of experience and great references. Moral of the story, never hurts to keep an eye on your nanny, esp in the beginning of the relationship- it's more work, but it's your kid, and it's worth it. 33 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

OP. I have a "separate space" when I'm working (I'm not in front of DB). I do however pop in and out a lot, and will continue to do so. Just my preference, and I talked about this dynamic during the interview to make sure nanny was ok with it. She was a nanny for a family for 5 yrs before us where the dad was a SAHD. Her words "I have nothing to hide and don't mind at all if you are around. I'd be doing the same thing regardless." So, I do respect her for that. [ Reply | More ]

It will make you buy a candy striper costume and visit your man at a hotel. I think at that point I would question my position in the relationship. [ Reply | More ]

No, he wasn't dumb and boring. He had his own furniture design business, and he loved the outdoors (which stupid Carrie could not appreciate.) [ Reply | More ]

She's a real twit in a lot of ways. I'm still a sucker for SATC (show not movies) but IRL her charms would have worn thin really fast--always clomping around in hideous giant white heels and bubblegum pink Pom Pom hats...ugh. She and Big would've turned into the creepiest, most depressing couple ever. [ Reply | More ]

I'm a sucker for it too. It's held up well for some reason. Some things wouldn't fly today, like Samantha dating the black guy and the sister, but overall it is still relavent. Somehow the fashion doesn't even look too dated either, perhaps because it was so outrageous (aside from Miranda and her kitten heels) I agree she was a twit with her weird tutus and frills.

Why wouldn't Samantha dating a black man fly now? [ Reply | More ]

NP--I think just the cheesy way it was handled, not the fact she was dating a black guy. [ Reply | More ]

It would but the way the sister freaked out about him dating a white girl and then Samantha getting in a fight with her.. seems outdated when watching it. Also how they treated trans which is so big and touchy now, etc [ Reply | More ]

Some of it is insanely silly and superficial and there are just so many elements that are completely absurd (her apartment, the clothes, the idea that these women are really friends and find SO much time to hang out but also NEVER date the same guys!) but as a whole it's very funny and endearing. I admit--I got weepy over some of those final episodes! Favorite episode though--the Post-It breakup. [ Reply | More ]

I would choose Aidan hands down. But CARRIE - she was a materialistic, shallow, go- for -the -money girl. So it's not surprising that she - idiot that she was- would prefer big. I think Aidan was better off without her. Why would a man like that want a woman who puts so much stock in her Manolos??? They were a bad match. [ Reply | More ]

ITA. But that sort of mis-match was a running theme in SATC. I mean, would a straight-laced puritan like Charlotte really be friends with a ho like Samantha IRL? I think not. [ Reply | More ]

Excellent point!!!! I never thought about it - but you're right. IRL, both would find each other distasteful. [ Reply | More ]

Yes, it was the ultimate horrible situation: Here comes the nice guy, perfect on paper but it's just not there. And you're 35. What do you do? Force it? She treated him just like Big had treated her. [ Reply | More ]

Frenemies was one of the best episodes....when Charlotte and Samantha each discovered they had a little bit of the others personality after all. When Charlotte gets drunk and screams at her sorority sisters how badly she wants to be fucked lol. [ Reply | More ]

Shearling are fine for dry weather. For snowy, slushy days you need more of a waterproof winter boot. [ Reply | More ]

La canadienne, Sorel, LL Bean...depends on yr style. Ugh does make some good winter boots--you just don't want shearling on the outside but shearling on the inside is wonderful. [ Reply | More ]

If we have a snowy winter, the corners and crosswalks are a wet, slushy mess. You will need a warm, waterproof boot to walk around the city. Ugg type boots will get wet and filly. Hunter rain boots aren't warm. [ Reply | More ]
