Isn't a preschool camp basically going to be like preschool with more free time and more time outside? Ie, if it's a nice preschool, it will probably be a nice camp. My dcs always loved their preschool camps (which are different than their regular preschool - I've cobbled together different things). One had swimming, but that's not necessary IMO. They're not really learning anything in a group setting at that age. It's enough to have kiddie pools and sprinklers. The pool-less camp this summer also had sand play areas (like the size of a volleyball court). The kids came home filthy but happy. Dcs also loved that their camp had a weekly theme, and they loved the special visitors (e.g. during animal week, someone would come with snakes and scorpions and stuff to pet). I did not like that they did not have the 4 yo's do a nap or rest. I also liked that they served lunch at the camp - no bagged lunch allowed. (My dcs will always pick lunch from home if it's a choice, but since it wasn't, and all the kids had the same thing, they were happy with it) [ Reply | More ]

First, to Mr. Big, Carrie is just a chick in the side he's banging. He likes that she is not a nobody and probably gets the kicks reading her column knowing that he is secretly Mr. Big. So there is an element of fame without the drawbacks. She however thinks Big is her knight in shining armor that is coming to rescue her from this big bad world. She even dresses in ballerina outfits and he in modern armour that represents wealth and power (a suit). The reality is she is never going to be his one and only, he will still bang other women because he clearly can. She may or may not be aware of this, but it doesn't matter because she needs him desperately. She eventually loses her job because print publications dwindle in face of the internet and she moves on to blogging which doesn't leave much income. She has Big as her financial support. They may get married (i think they did in the movie) but they never have children. They live out their lives lonely and age and may get divorced eventually, never really getting away from the city.i imagine she lives her last days as a cat lady full of memories, maybe some regrets. No more relationships to speak of or to write about. He probably gets another place near the city that is more comfortable with his new younger wife. And in the context of the show, that is love is, an convenient and temporary economic arrangement. Viewed as a fairy tale from Carries eyes, and as an interesting chick he settled for because fun.

Rally size has no correlation with winning elections. He's the world-class entertainment of the moment, and tickets are free. At this point people are going who just want to see how crazy he is in real life. There are only so many shows before the difference between television and the internet and real-life shows up at the polls. Good luck. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My dad passed away last month. He was doing business. He has few bank loans. He also loaned money to his brother. His brother refused to pay back any of the money. My mom is crying her eyes out. Money is not a problem for our family but she is hurt that his brother is so rude. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Sounds like she is looking for an outlet for her anger st your dad's passing. It might be that he is pissed that your mom is trying to get him to give money to her that she doesn't need when he knew his brother would never receive him to repay it unless doing so was NBD for him financially.

NP. If it was structured as a loan and not a gift, he expected it to be paid back. The brother sounds like a crass opportunist. [ Reply | More ]

that sucks. when people die one of two things happen to a family. either they come closer together, or they completely fracture. i am sorry for what you are going through. my MIL just went through this with her sister and it was devastating to her. [ Reply | More ]

I think it takes a very special person to do that job. I know a hospice nurse and she is an incredible person [ Reply | More ]

BTDT with both parents and YES, they really are that amazing. It is a calling, and they are the most amazing people at a really difficult time. [ Reply | More ]

I think some are, but many are jaded. When my mom was dying I had a horrific experience at hospice (with the exception of 1 super sweet nurse who was only on night shift). 7 years later, I still can't believe how awful it was. But, I am obviously biased by this and it could have jsut been a shitty facility. [ Reply | More ]

IME they were more accepting and less judgmental than the hospital nurses; the less said about that the better. OTOH, they're people and nobody's perfect. [ Reply | More ]

Yes. They are amazing. Someone you love is dying and you're falling apart and you need people to do things for you that you don't even know you need. [ Reply | More ]

I believe community hospices are amazing. My father died at home with cancer and having the hospice volunteer who cam to our house daily for a few hours a day during the last month was so helpful. Our nurse was calm, empathetic and let us know when the end was near. [ Reply | More ]
