When I found out I was pregnant, my dh and bought our first home. It's turned out to be a mixed blessing. I love owning our home, but it's incredibly expensive -- more than double the rent at our...

I know exactly what you mean. I've read many of your other posts, and it sometimes seems like we are living parallel lives. After I finished my judicial clerkship, I saw all my co-clerks going on to...

My dd is 16 months old, and we have always tried to put her to bed at 9:00. On rare occasions, she will fall asleep on her own as early as 8:00. Often she is not ready for bed at 9:00, so my dh will...
