I started sewing dresses for a designer - simple, little girl dresses...i get $10/dress plus i bill for any elastic or buttons i had to buy.  Can i also bill for thread?  I dont know what is protocol here - the designer told me to bill her or elastic or buttons - but didnt specifically say 'thread' - i guess i feel kind of cheap billing for thread - but seriously i am going thru the stuff pretty quickly!!
I feel such anxiety over trying to secure a religious exemption for my son - he will start Pre K  (its universal in our school district) in Sept ....its half days.  i REALLY want him to go - he has been at home with me for nearly 4 years and i think Kindergarten will be totally overwhelming for him if he doesnt go to Pre K first. He has had a total of 5 vaxxes.  I always assumed i would get him everything necessary for K-garten - but pre - k vax requirements are like day...
I grew up around breastfeeding too - in the years between me starting Middle School and me graduating High School - i had two baby brothers and 7 cousins born in my family.  Everywhere i went it was bellies, babies and breasts   i knew one mother who formula fed her daughter and she turned out to be allergic to teh formula (?)  had to switch around formulas - she was a crazy fussy baby until about 6 months old.  The mother was STILL complaining /re telling the stories of...

LOL - i know!  im totally addicted.... this could have been such a positive message for HB - if it was!  i just would have plotzed if her midwife arrived via horseback!!   or ATV for that matter!!
Tell me i am the only dope who stayed up late last night (for me....)  to watch Eve and Eivan have their baby ....i was assuming a HB ....or travel to the hospital on ATV....both exciting ways to have a baby!   it was 5 minutes of 'hes here, were so glad...'  - not a word on where he was born!   *grrr*
