I really like Tessa and really dislike Bevin (no special reason), so I am rooting for Tessa. I can't see anyone cheering if Bevin was proposed to (except Bevin) so my money is still on Tessa.
I can definitely see circumstances when my dds are tired and would love to ride (they always ride in the cart). So I guess I wouldn't judge if that is how the mom can get her shopping done- as long as it wasn't against the kids will. My dds started walking at 9mos and wanted to walk from that point on, but everybody gets tired. I was just at Universal Studios and SeaWorld for 3 days and would have loved a wheelchair some days.
Not to minimize the roller coaster you have been on, but I had cancer that was misdiagnosed by three different doctors (one of whom told me that it was nothing and go ahead and get pregnant!). I would appreciate a doctor that will explore the major negatives first to rule them out. But if she is pressuring you to treat things you can get over from on your own (like a sinus infection) after the diagnosis, that would be different. To me, it is important to be thorough to...

Not every emergency can be remedied by a phone call. Honestly, if something happened...
I would suggest consulting a lawyer. Mine told me to wait until he was 12 to do it - then the judge would do it based on ds's desire alone regardless of whether ds's biodad contested (by this time, ds decided to keep his name and I go by both last names).
I just realized who Natasha looks like: Violet Baudelaire!
