Can you even imagine dealing with the cross fire btw parents who are so polarized on these issues? Yeah re the 10 y.o. in...
Anyone's kids watching the speech next week? I'm not asking for political reasons (don't ban me ). I'm just curious if anyone IS doing it. I don't know of any grade schools here in Anch. GORGEOUS day & weekend. Happy 3 day weekend to everyone!
