As the mother of five daughters

I think my daughters starting wearing bras about that age. I was in fifth grade and had breast buds that were starting to stick out and asked my Mom for a bra and she laughed at me, and it was sort...

So sorry to hear this

I know it must be hard, and you will miss her terribly.

You need to contact the restaurant, either by phone or by email, explain what happened and tell them that it was hard to enjoy the meal due to being wet and cold, and ask that you get a complimentary...

Try pure ammonia.

It's okay on a self-cleaning oven (according to this site) and has worked wonders for me when everything had to be perfect for a military move-out inspection. Usually, I put the racks in a plastic...

You have to buy both books

You can do it, and it works in "whisper sync" mode. It will pick up where you left off for sure. But you have to pay for both the written version and the audible version. Sometimes, it's just an...

Winter break?

That's what we call our break at Christmas time. We won't get another until somewhere near Easter.

Well, its too late now

Pushback or not. Did kids come with Valentines? Or candy? Did you allow them to be passed out or did you send them home unopened?

I guess it all depends on what the culture of your school is...

In my previous school

The autistic classrooms got smart boards before anyone else, because they had special funds besides the building funds. But the aut classrooms found it difficult to get extra teacher editions and...

Because perhaps

they are being given more work that can be done in "given hours." Salaried positions, like teachers and other professionals, are not paid, in the United States, by the hour, but are paid a yearly...

I think I would do most of them.

Not the India, not China, and not the last Russian one. Like Ima, I'd rather drive than be a passenger, and I would want my husband along for company. I'd love to do the Alaskan one in the summer.

It depends...

If I'm doing a computer crossword puzzle, I do all of the across ones first and then all the downs, and then go back to fill in areas left blank. Its easier that way because I can just tab to the...

We've watched it

And you're right, it takes a show or two to really catch the spirit of the show. Are there new episodes? It seems like it's been awhile since we watched it.

My family likes to play

Jack Party games. It can be played together as a group, or online, as we do. We get together a couple of times a month on a google chat and play them.

what I enjoyed wouldn't fit in your basket. I craved watermelon. And ice.

While I agree with you that schools are not daycares and that the schools decisions should not be BASED on parental needs, etc.

OTOH, I think that there is a responsibility to not cause...

Many parents

find snow days a hardship. Finding a babysitter at the last moment may be difficult, especially if they have no close family or friends nearby. Calling out of work may use up precious sick days (if...

the Pioneer Woman tends to cook foods that are as delicious as they look, and has no problem adding all the good stuff. She has a recipe for Potatoes Au Gratin that is just scrumptious. Butter,...

Slight correction

There are four children in the room, according to the article, and four teachers. Although I have to wonder if all four are actually licensed teachers. My experience would be that there is one...

Your son comes first.

I agree. Don't stay a minute later than you need to stay. Bring stuff home to do after your child is in bed, if you must. It's already an extended day. You're at school 8.5 hours plus travel...

I would absolutely eat them

Raspberries are really expensive, especially out of season. I wouldn't dream of throwing them away. Wash and enjoy.

Great life lessons

A working teen learns so many life skills. From responsibility to money management. They collect people that can give great references for colleges.

My girls all ended up working at the same...

I would go for the stainless steel. It should last a long time, if the Revere Ware is anything to go by. Then I'd buy one or two frying pans in a good non-stick coating and just plan to replace...
