[ - ] Do you know a lot of SN kids born to older mothers? My 44 yo DF just found out her 2 yo has a genetic disorder likely due to advanced maternal age. I am worried because I am 38 and pregnant with #3. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

In August, there was a mom on here searching for last minute care for some of the days on the week before school started because of a training or something they had to do. Another couple of moms gave her places to try because most camps were either finished for the summer or full for those days. [ Reply | More ]

RH has crappy outdoor furniture. All made in China. Check out the Gloster catalog on line. Furnitureland South in N. Carolina carries it. So many beautiful options and they deliver all over the country. [ Reply | More ]

I have too many ornaments. I need a bigger tree! Alas, I still have the fake tree I bought from Target on Christmas Eve 15 years ago for $50 (75% off) and it keeps on ticking year after year after year. I am not ready to go up to the next size, which is $400 at Costco. I use the same ornaments every year but change the color of ribbon (also from Costco). [ Reply | More ]

That was I! Not done already, but always done before Halloween. Got totally flamed for having time to do it now, as if it's somehow faster to shop in December than September. No color scheme for xmas however -- looks great in magazines, but do people replace the ornaments every year? Otherwise I would find it monotonous. [ Reply | More ]
