    I actually haven't posted here in years, but was feeling so anxious about the election tomorrow (I am a liberal) that I thought I would visit my old online community, and was impulsed-itemed (just...

    The more onesies, the better! I used to go through three or four of them a day, since my babies always had a lot of those (too-much-info-alert) massive, blow-out poops that went all the way up the...

    Wait, I just skimmed the thread, and still don't see what that one surprising thing is that saves the marriage, and I don't want to read the article. Can someone just name it?

    For us, it all depends on whether or not WE have young children too. When we all had young children, guests and hosts, we took turns--one or more adults watched the kids while the others helped get...

    Hey, thanks everyone! And thanks for the suggestions about Williamsburg, and the links! I forgot about the punched tin thing, how did I forget?; now I remember using foil pans cut out, punched with...

    I agree with others that you could probably call social services, the city, the police, etc, and at least get these neighbors to remedy the obvious violations of city codes and federal laws. And...

    YES!!! We hope to get our older two kids off to college (oldest is going this fall), and then move, assuming one of us can find work. This is the big challenge. But it costs so little to live off...

    Congratulations, Stella! How wonderful: two girls, then two boys! You'll never have to "entertain" your kids. They'll just play with each other, instead of whining "I'm bored", as our "only child"...
