Re: HIMYM - The Ending

I was really sad that the mom died. I felt so sad for Ted and the kids. I was also pissed that they gave Barney a child, and then he continued his womanizing afterwards. .. The divorce pissed me off too, because it wasn't because Barney was a jerk, it was because Robin was too successful and travel...

Re: HIMYM - The Ending

Don't even get me started. In all fairness, looking back I can see how they set up for this. But I found the whole last episode crammed so many events and years into one hour that it was disjointed. I haaaaate that the mother died. I hate that Barney and Robin's marriage went up in smoke in the beg...

Re: HIMYM - The Ending

I was really bummed when the first introduced "the mother" as the mother. I would have sworn it was going to twist around to show how Robin was their mother , which would explain why she was mentioned so much. However, but the time this season was over I could see how "the mother&quo...

Re: HIMYM - The Ending

When it first came up, I thought the divorce was a bummer. By the time the episode finished, the divorce was the least of my concerns.

Re: I hope you guy are happy with Affordable Care Act

It's another government Ponzi scheme. Besides the obvious, if you folks think you will get the quality of medical care we've had previously, take another big long think. Don't bother flaming me, just wait & you will see. Socialized med is great if you're healthy. Period. Actually, I would say t...

Don't live in the US so have no idea about whether bulk tests from COSTCO are possible or not.

Re: Wanting but Waiting...

Oh! I read as in she had a dream one night so the next day she decided to test. But I guess your explanation sounds more plausible given how she said they're not trying yet. As far as the other issue is concerned, I really think there should be a rule saying that kids need to be in school by a certa...

Muff, I apologise for my comment. I didn't mean to imply that you intend to do that. Also, where I'm from is similar in that it's your choice when to send your child to pre-school/nursery but they definitely have to be in kindergarten (age 5) in September of the calendar year they turn 5; so if they...

Re: Wanting but Waiting...

I strongly disagree with the practice of holding children back. I don't think it is for parents to decide on a "hunch" or a "worry" that their kids are "too young" for a system that should be designed to cater for the range of developmental stages and abilities of chil...

Re: Parenting Q's - vacationing without your kids

No. Two weeks is max depending on the child's age, let's say high school. My son is 20 months and I wouldn't even go for a week. To be honest, I was mortified that the Cambridges left their 7-month-old for a week.

Re: Cloth Diapers?

Thanks for the info, Bella! How long should they be in the dryer for?

They've been used for about 18 months now, and I have all sorts of brands and types but my shells are Flip, CB, HH, FB, Rumparooz, swaddlebees, and thirsties.

Re: PS Mommy thread with toddlers 12-36 months

K will nap around 10-1030am for 60-90 mins after getting up at 7, and then her 2nd nap is around 2/3pm. On week...
