We save them... to track expenses... if we have a problem with something and need 'proof of purchase'... if we realize later they can be good towards a rebate... you never want them until you don't have them!

I've been on the phone for the last hour and they are absolutely unwilling to help reassign seats so that either dh or I is sitting with our dd. Seriously-- what the heck?! We only have a 39 minute layover to make our connecting flight, which has us seated all over the plane, and they're telling me that we have to wait until we check in at the gate, as we board...
Quote: Originally Posted by unlegal No worries! My daughter is also a spirited one, but she's very friendly with other kids, and kinda 'gets' those who are sensitive. So, we'll see I'll post something here probably once we move, and try to get to meet some others. I know a lot of the moms are not on here anymore, though. Do you have a FB? I use that much more; mine is facebook.com/nicole.murray nah, i really don't like fb. seriously. i may...

See, to me it *is* perfectly normal. And there *isn't* much you can do. You can't reason because...
I just repeat calmly as much as needed that we need to clean it up (cause I will help), and that nothing else is going to happen before then. No food, no playing... nothing that he wants from me. I guess this works cause he WON"T just go and play anything else by himself. If he wants me (and he does), then we clean.

Pre-feed your daughter, so she won't be hungry and offer her whatever you think is okay at the party. my son's friends' families always bring their own food to outings and gatherings- that way, they know they have something they like. no one wants the kids to have nothing they can eat or a child who is over-hungry, so we are all...
Quote: Originally Posted by texmati wow. all the ob's and ped's do free interviews, or meet and greet nights at least! If they are to busy to see me for free, or that uninterested in meeting me, than they are to busy to be my doctor. doctors around here ARE really busy... they can see 30-40 patients per day, often working 10+ hour days (and then maybe work only 4 days per week). if you want time, i don't know any doctor that has any!

Is this really how it works with kids' classes? So strange to me. Thanks for your thoughts. my kid's spanish class has an out at any time for...
