That sounds like an amazing offer.  Am I not understanding the math?  At 9.35/hour you make $19,448 yearly.  At $22.50 per hour you make $46,800 yearly - not including bonus or OT.  That is an extra $27,352 per year.  Daycare at $650 per month is $7800 yearly (plus $1950 for extra 3 months in summer).  Is the $124 weekly that you receive in food stamps ?  Does it have to do with tax bracket and take home salary?  Loss of other services?  Healthcare costs? I hope you...
We have three children ages 6, 6 and 8. And  I remember many of the same feelings.  We handled it this way.  Party invitations were and are declined unless it is a close friend.  We explained to our children that our family does not celebrate birthdays with big parties.  We have family dinner (birthday child can pick the menu) and cake.  It helps that they have 3 cousins close in age.  Honestly none of my children have complained - they have just accepted that this is...
Hi Everyone - I don't check in often - very surprised to see a bunch of new folks on the thread.   My 8 year old son had surgery December 21 - so 7 weeks ago now.  To answer some of the above questions.  Surgery was aproximately 2 1/2 hours.  He didn't complain of much pain.  The worst part of the entire ordeal was his vomiting and nausea after surgery.  He was so hungry - but so sick.   He had already learned how to walk on crutches (due to ankle injury last spring)...
We either skim some of the cream and make butter or shake it in and drink up:)
Also love my Bosch Dishwasher.  We have Jenn Air Dual Fuel oven and JennAir  Refrigerator - I wouldn't pay the $ for these again.  They are both 9 years old and have needed several expensive repairs.   
Thanks Paula My husband attended the visit with my son as I was out of town.  The doctor gave him the statistics re pain resolution with and without surgery - 50% resolution without surgery and 75% resolution with surgery.  Ok I wish those odds were a bit better.  BUT my son doesn't complain of much pain.  My worry is that he adjusts his gait and his movement patterns to avoid pain and/or because the mechanics of his foot demand the change.   And I still find him...
Congratulations!  Quite an accomplishment.  They are beautiful.
Thanks Paula Keep me posted.  We are in a "boot" for one more week and will see one of the foot specialists at Boston Children's Hospital next Friday - I will let you know what I learn.  Good luck with the PT!
Check out Liberty Kids on netflix.
HI Paula, Sorry I haven't responded - haven't been here for a few days.  I should tell you that in my practice I treat mostly adults and have never had a patient with this diagnosis.  Nor have any of my colleagues.  So I too am thinking this through and learning as I go.  Though I do have an understanding of the anatomy and biomechanics.     There are times that I refer to chiro and I have used chiro in the past myself.  However, in this instance I wouldn't imagine...
