[ - ] Housekeeper was supposed to work today. I told yesterday her that she could have a break between 2pm and 7pm because we will not be eating dinner at home today. This morning, our plan changed. So i told her that she could have a break for lunch until 3pm instead. She got annoyed and told me that she already made plans with her friends and couldn't really change.

Private school and charter school teachers adore going back to work each year. Friday evenings are the worst for them, because they know they will have 2 solid days without being able to be in their schools. However, they spend all weekend working to become better teachers, and come Sunday night, they can barely sleep with the excitement of knowing another full week of school awaits them!

The bag is not lame. Being over the age of 16 and worrying whether other people think your bag is lame is lame. [ Reply | More ]

Oh, honey. If you have $400 to spend, not much time and you like this bag, buy it. But a bit of shopping at TJMaxx or similar store may yield something just as nice for less. [ Reply | More ]

started sooner. truth be told I think moms who have their first baby at age 25-27 have it right. Late 30s with a newborn is hard. And getting pg took longer than expected [ Reply | More ]

baby here at 42. No harder than first db at 34. Financially, things are much easier when older and can always pay for help. At 25 money would be tight for most [ Reply | More ]

Pregnant without trying at 39. I was lazy and self-centered in my 20s. No way would I have been ok w getting up multiple times a night, watching my peers enjoy life while being tied down w babies. What's not ideal is that I worry about being around long enough to see my children into adulthood. That concerns me most. As for being old w a newborn, for me newborns are easy. Toddlers, not so much. [ Reply | More ]

Nothing. With the acknowledgement that I got VERY lucky. I met DH when I was 19 and he was a 31yo visiting professor. I got pregnant at 20 and we got married. I had three kids before I was 25, and didn't finish my master's until I was almost 29. When all 3 DCs were in elementary, I started my career. Because of DH's job, we were able to travel and live in several different countries in my 20s. [ Reply | More ]

That's really gross. A 31 year old got a student pregnant and you hold that up as an experience that was very lucky? I think it's immoral at best. [ Reply | More ]

Np: I agree with you. Or is saying she had an ideal situation, but something must be off about her dh. No respectable 31 y/o man will get a 19y/o kid knocked up. [ Reply | More ]

np A 19yo is not a "kid". I wouldn't encourage my daughter to get involved with someone so much older, but at 19, it's certainly her adult decision to make. [ Reply | More ]

She didn't say that. She said he was A professor. Not HER professor. As long as there are no complaints of harassment, professors date students all the time. I dated my TA in college. [ Reply | More ]

College student. Post your job on a college employment website. I don't think you can get the cleaning from a college student, but you can certainly get the after school pick up. Hire a cleaning person separately. [ Reply | More ]

What college are you closest to? Google (college name here) employment. You'll get to the site where the college kids go looking for posted jobs. Most college sites allow potential employers to register and post their jobs. I found a great after school sitter via the NYU site. [ Reply | More ]
