[ - ] I am really regretting sending my DS to Kindegarten at age just-5 (late July birthday with Sept 1 cut-off) instead of waiting a year and sending him at just-6. So many parents made that choice and my DS is over a year younger than many of his classmates. He's now in 2nd grade and it hasn't leveled out. The fact that he's the youngest shows academically, socially, maturity etc. Ugh. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Private school, DS is in 4th grade, same story. He turned 9 in June. A few of his classmates turned 10 over the summer, many have turned 10 since start of school, most will be 10 by end of 2014.

[ - ] I posted a week or so ago about my family Christmas drama...... I was suppose to host my parents, sister, and other family members XMAS Day. My parents are now flying to Texas to visit my single, diva-like sister. The reason my mother wants to go is only because she wanted to visit her. This is her XMas gift from my dad, so they're both flying to see her during the holidays. Apparently, my sister doesn't want to come and see all her extended family for Xmas, including our grandparents, aunts/uncles and cousins. Oh and her nieces and nephews. I'm thinking something is up. My sister is very self-centered and I'm guessing she's pissed because our family isn't calling her a lot or bending to her every whim. The whole thing is so weird and stings a little. My parents don't care to spend XMas with their grandkids. They would rather cater to my difficult sister. 26 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Try to look at it from another perspective. You were planning to host Christmas. Based on what you post, it's easy to see that your sister isn't paid as much attention to (doesn't have children, lives far away). She probably has traveled for many holidays to visit you all. Your parents, presumably, have spent Christmas with you and your family for many of the past few years if not all of them, and your sister has probably flown back to your area to participate. This year, they are traveling to see your sister (their daughter) for a change. It is completely normal. Your attitude of "they don't care to spend Christmas with their grandkids" could easily be reversed to "they don't care to spend Christmas with their own daughter (in Texas)". [ Reply | More ]

Read above: My sister just moved to Texas in July. She used to live 35 minutes from them. My mother is ditching the whole family to visit her. My sister has the ability to visit the family, but she just doesn't "want" to. I'm guessing she's pissed because no one is catering to her anymore and she said she won't come home. So yet again, my mother is at her beck and call. [ Reply | More ]
