Mine have lasted over a year. I just wash them with the regular laundry on cold and dry on low or line dry. If I had to guess I'd say the bleach was the problem.
I'm the oldest of 4; I have sisters 2 1/2 years and 6 years younger, and a brother 20 years younger. I wasn't close with my sisters, actually fought violently and constantly with one of them. I just didn't have much in common with the other one. One sister is bipolar with social anxiety and ocd and required almost all of my parents' attention. She wasn't diagnosed until she was 22. My mom stayed home with us because my sister couldn't handle daycare or school. My...
DDCC, if they show up while you're in labor they'll probably just leave. Just have DH or your midwife answer the door and tell the manager that you're in labor.

When they start asking for privacy. Right now, my 5-year old wants to bathe alone because he wants more room to play.
If it helps my DD also pretends to have guns and swords, while my 1st DS has a baby. We just get them toys that they like and they share amongst themselves. I'm not worried that I'm raising a chauvinist just because my son has more interest in cars then barbies. That's just what he likes.
Honestly, I just let it go. It's just one day. I don't keep much of the leftover candy and we don't have allergies to worry.

What was funny was that he never said anything about his friend being brown but told me about his friend's new glasses for two days.
