You might want to check the mountains - some of the tourist locations in the mountains might have an all-inclusive. Or maybe a cruise that doesn't go tropical (Alaska or something?)

Summer Plans

Are you going to a state that you do not live in this summer?
I live in NC. We will travel to NY to visit family.

Will you see any major attractions or go to theme parks?
We haven't decided...

I agree!

I LOVE my alone time... I'm an introvert too.

I'm wishing that someone could keep my 2 kids for a day or two next week (we are done after Tuesday next week). I would love to send my kids to...

Had to laugh...

My dd turned 4 in March (she potty trained early, before she turned 2) I think she started wiping herself pretty early on, but I don't remember when... We still help her after she goes poo though,...

If the price is right...

Honestly, I'm going to go against what most others said. If the price isn't a factor, I'd go for the one with the basement. I have a lot of sewing supplies and my dh has a drum set and guitars, and I...

It depends...

When my son was little we didn't have one. We bought one before our first trip to visit the inlaws. It came in very handy at their house (it had the bassinet that we used plus a changing table on top...

Never happened to me....

I have never had anyone ask me to do anything like that during summer. Usually my sister wants me to come and have lunch with her a few times, but that's about it. I just tell them that I have plans....

As much as I might want to, I can't spend that kind of money on a purse. I shop cheap ($30-40) because having a family means our needs come before my wants. I just can't justify spending a lot on a...

What I do...

I put the items I think we should "save" into our storage building (behind our house). My son is 7 and my daughter is 4. A friend was having a yard sale to earn money for her brother who was in a...

If we are at a buffet where they bring and refill drinks we usually leave a couple of dollars. But most of the time we are at a pizza buffet with our kids where there is no service - you get...

We make it

In our school the teachers who teach 1st grade make the class list for 2nd grade. We have to have an even number of boys vs girls in each class, an equal number of high/med/low kids, an even number...

This is it for me too.

I have made the decision to leave at the end of this year (16 more days). My students were not as bad as yours, but the whole "teach to the test" even in 1st grade is just ridiculous. I've had it...

I sometimes take mine to the bathroom and put it on when I get out of the shower and wear it until I get my clothes picked out. Other times I wear it over my pjs to stay warm.

I'm done....

I have made the decision to find a new career once this year ends. I'm stressed out, I bring stuff home all the time, no time for my family because I'm busy working on school stuff. I don't like the...

looking as well

We are also looking into using WriteSteps next year as well. It looks like a good program, I'm interested to see what people have to say about it.

whole class snack

I have a list at the beginning of the year for parents to sign up to send snack for the whole class. They send enough for a week, which may seem like a lot, but they only have to send it about 3...

If you have a Babies-R-Us near you, twice a year they do a trade-in event. You can trade in old car seats, strollers, pack-n-plays, etc to get 20% off the purchase of a new one. We did that several...

I agree...

I'm with 3Monkeys - sometimes I'll read an e-mail and not have time to respond, and later I forget to respond. I would call (to double check the e-mail) and see what happens.

I hear too many people talking about injuries due to trampolines, so we made the decision to never have one.
My kids do get to play on the trampolines at gymnastics, and they have rules (the...

Not acceptable

When my kids were little I was lucky. My mom kept my 1st child until he was 3 and we put him in a daycare center then.

With my daughter I found someone through Craigslist to keep her.
