But now I hate that it's basically parents who do the selling now. All via FB or asking coworkers, and if I do see girls...

If we both want something at the same store and we're both home and want to go out, we'll go together. Otherwise, we mostly shop individually on the way home from work.

My original answer that I deleted was a little snippy to the people who do think it's bad parenting, but I don't think any one thing makes someone a bad parent.

I will play it but I'll never seek it out. I really don't like how long Monopoly takes but apparently if you play by the real rules and not all the house rules people have made up over the years, it...

#10 pencils necessary

I'm doing a lesson that requires "#10 pencils" I can't find any sets of just #10s and they seem like they'd be expensive even if I could find a set of 25.

What does a #10 do and how could I...

Whenever I feel like it. I don't really have retirement to speak of, having worked at private school most of the time so far. All our investing and saving is on our own or via DH's company.

No, if they all have the same dad it's just one apostrophe at the end. If they all have different dads, then it's "Sally's, Betty's, and Sam's dads..."

I have very dark brown. I get it partially lightened and do a sort of purple ombre effect (not exactly but that's the best description I can think of) all over.

If I were you, not wanting to do...
