[ - ] Feels like bedtime is the equivalent of going to war. 2.4yo twin boys. Wrestling match to get them t take a bath. Wrestling match to get into diapers. Wrestling match to get into pajamas. Full scale war to brush their teeth. Want to read different books. Want to sing different songs. They are driving me mad! When will they start growing out of this? This is actually a serious question. 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Why not decide to be ok with them doing things the way they want. I really don't get why parents feel like they have to control / battle their kids so much. Life is too freakin' short! Enjoy it!

we went public with a fall ds. were worried like you are now. cannot tell you how well it has worked out. private schools have brainwashed us to believe K kids need to be 6 going on 7 to succeed. my ds has absolutely blossomed with the demands of K, and cannot imagine him sitting in preschool now waiting for K. he was shy and that too has changed for the better. i have now come to believe the worry, coddling and holding back is absolutely wrong and counter development [ Reply | More ]

we put our dd in public 2 weeks before cut off as well - I really want her to repeat...being the youngest presents a variety of issues. She is able to "keep up" but if she had been born 2 weeks later she would be able to soar vs just "keep up" - competing with children who are 11 1/2 months older is rough on a lot of level - even when a child is smart and well liked...simple physical and developmental issues are not in synch.

here's the problem. I already made this decision last year and held him back in the 3's (we moved to the burbs late in school year so he wasn't really repeateing the year) so he hasn't done pre-k yet. The thing is, he gets homework that's kindergarten level. Academically I was told he wouldn't really be missing anything but I'm kicking myself for being "so sure" last year. My dh and I couldn't find any advantage of him being the youngest but now I"m questioning it and going crazy! [ Reply | More ]

I'll be honest, everyone has an opinion so it's a 50-50 chance of what they'll say. I"ve already polled so many people and so many simply believe in holding them back and some don't.

I did this once on a larger radius, using (I think) US News & World Report high school rankings. Basically, think Long Island. There are a whole bunch of excellent schools out there.

I have also heard Basking Ridge Schools are excellent - and that area of NJ (past Morristown) is very pretty although I don't know if the people are crunchy. South Orange/Maplewood/Montclair schools get mixed reviews so look in to them before buying carefully but there are nice old houses and people are at least in theory a little bit more crunchy - although, my friends there are not necessarilly crunchy. I would have to do more research before commiting myself. Irvington, in Westchester is also supposed to have great schools and be sort of artsy. Places with worse commutes that feel rural are Pennington, NJ and Easton, CT. So nice in both! [ Reply | More ]

I am the poster above that spoke about Basking Ridge and went on. Princeton HS is great and the surrounding areas like Pennington, etc. are very rural (good schools there).

I tell them it takes 4 people for a divorce to go smoothly- the spouses and the lawyers. If any one of them want to make it difficult, it easily gets ugly. Its a process, and even in the best circumstances with people who get along, there is always the potential for nastiness. Its so much easier said than done, but you need to pace yourself for the worst and hope for the best. Dont let anyone (your dh, your lawyer) bully you, be strong. Its your life. You dont need to get dragged into something ugly. You can achieve the results you need without stooping to his level. Do you both have lawyers? Has someone initiated the action? [ Reply | More ]

i would go ahead and still ask when checking in. that happened to us (and I was too cheap to buy ticket) but for whatever reason, once we were seated with baby in lap, they ended up moving someone around so db had a seat. [ Reply | More ]

My bil/sil live there. We visit every summer. I just love the colonial architecture and the small town feeling. The 4th of July parade down mainstreet is wonderful. Both towns have very good high schools. Nice ditance from Boston, so commuting is good. Cohasset ahs a beautiful town beach. Both towns have great sailing clubs with summer programs for kids [ Reply | More ]

With all due respect, I remember my college friend from Belmont telling me that Cohasset was very snooty. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I know MIL doesn't approve that I SAH, even though she did and her daughter does. I know it's because DH doesn't make a ton of money (about 130). I just think that I'd rather be home and sacrifice vacations and etc. 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

i know it does, that's why i don't say anything to DH about it. unfortunately, it's not like we can't take their money. Even if we had that option, we'd use it for something else. The money is in DH's name, it is a trust account [ Reply | More ]

she probably thinks that her son is taking on too big of a burden. she either doesnt care that her SIL is or he makes more money. $130K is not a lot of money in the NY area but if you and DH are ok with this then she needs ot MHOB [ Reply | More ]

SIL's husband is a IB so he makes a ton of money. i am sure she is worried because DH is not that successful. we are not saving a lot, but we are able to squeak by. we are hoping to buy a house that will keep us comfortable. [ Reply | More ]
