[ - ] WWYD, DS did not get a spot at Hunter, went to R2, got a 150 on SB test. He took the G&T test as well. We applied for a spot at a Catholic school, but if we get in we have to give downpayment/decision before we find out G&T score. Would you take the spot a Catholic school or pass and bet on G&T? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Ahhh. time is passing... My 8 year old DD, not particularly precocious, has a boy she likes and this year, instead of focusing on her BFFs for Valentines, as in past years, she made a gift for this lucky boy. The boy himself has no clue of what's going on. Nor does my DD know what it means to like a boy. I guess she's feeling all a-flutter when she sees him and that's pretty much it. she barely talks about him and she doesn't seem too concern that when her appreciation is revealed, he might not reciprocate her feelings. For the moment, she's still at the stage where she believes we will live in the same house as a family forever, so I'm not overly concerned. Kind of cute though. And in proper UB style, I hope this boy is from a TT family :-) 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
