    No research here- but based on my own experience, I'd send my girls in a heartbeat. I was in all-girls school from 9-12 and loved it. I don't know that I felt apprehensive to participate in class...

    Based on an older thread, we recently started doing reading eggs online. I've been amazed at how much the kids have taken to it. I really tried it for dd1, who rather quickly started sounding out...

    I did it both times (I was 37 and 38). Both times they told me during the ultrasound that things looked good (based on nasal bone & nuchal fold measurements), so I esp liked it, b/c I wasn't worried...

    We have a baby jogger city mini double and I can't say enough about it. It was pricey- but DH and I regularly say it's probably the best kid purchase we ever made.

    Hugs, L! I do this search annually for our au pair and I truly know how unpleasant and time-consuming it can be. Add to that the feeling of being betrayed.... What a ninny to put her business on a...

    I felt the same way about pinkalicious, which I bought (sight unseen) on the advice that it was like fancy nancy (it wasn't!). Who would ever write a book about a fresh child, who "hates" veggies and...

    I've really enjoyed reading every post in this thread! And before I answer the question, may I place my vote for Katarina? I think it's very pretty- and have a Swedish friend w/ that name- I'd guess...

    I agree w/ all this. The scariest moment we had w/ dd1 (at age 2) was when Dh and I were trying to get her younger sister out of the pool (then aged 1) . dd1 stepped off the step and silently went...

    Just wanted to thank the OP and ducks like rain too. I had no idea they sold these clothes at costco until I read this thread. By coincidence I was there today and picked up three dresses that were...

    I agree w/ the pp's. Both my girls trained well and easy and young (although a little older than your girl ~ 2.5). They each got it, IIRC, in under a week. Naked from the waist down w/ a potty in...

    My answer is "no"- but it's not really based on the question you asked, rather the fact that you asked it.

    I haven't run percentages, but it seems to me like most people have found this to be a reasonable thing to request, although don't necessarily agree about what happens post-request.

    I would make the request but give MIL the out (saying I'd understand if she didn't want to host a party w/o alcohol and that there'd be no bad feelings in that case). It's a funny situation, b/c,...
