DD wants her "boyfriend" at her birthday party

I really wouldn't worry about it, just invite him and cross your
fingers, DS has been to slightly girly parties and boyish parties where

Traveling with kids...

We don't travel that much, so having kids hasn't interrupted it, though

We took DS to Cyprus (from the UK) aged 10 months, it was no more...

how much to pay a babysitter

What are people paying these days, I suspect there is going to be a
difference dependent on age and experience, but a ball park figure would
be helpful, I want to avoid insulting someone!

Painful sneezing/coughing?

It sounds familiar to me for one pregnancy. Particularly putting my
leg up before a cough, or holding my side that hurts. I don't
remember it being really painful, but certainly painful enough...

It seems that many times that I sneeze or cough, it really hurts. I find
it's in my lower belly, often on the right side (but not limited to that

Private school vs SAHM?

Here's one way to look at it, during the olympics there was an article

Chookie, sounds like a tricky situation, you have my sympathies.

I certainly relate to the dance stories, but in my
opinion, it ought to be self-evident that pretty much any
activity has stuff you need to know if you're going to pursue

Nope. Abundantly clear it's not a fundraiser.
