Long time member, long time not posting here.   I backed away from MDC for a whole lot of reasons, some of which have already been covered (kid is older, confident in my parenting choices, etc)  I've come back because I'm thinking about having another (not very seriously, though) and thoughted I'd dip in again.  WOW, has this place changed.    Not in a way that's put me off though.   DD is now 8 (!) and I was pleased to see there is a forum for older kids. ...

Lower mainland BC is so lovely in a million different ways but not seeing the sun for 75+ days IN A ROW is brutal. Maybe I was there for a bad year but I'm seriously not exaggerating.
