You need to address this with your provider. It is ok to expect them to provide the level of care they are obligated by law to provide. Ask where the daughter is and if one or the other of them...

I love my Starbucks time. The library isn't the same. My local Starbucks is a good combo of people to talk to (grown up convo!) and no one talking to me (blessed silence). It is ok to do things...

My daughter had a bristle block she called a guitar (???). It went everywhere with us. Then one day she was just over it. I wouldn't worry about it.

I need to donate some toys, questions?

We are moving and it's kind of a sudden decision. It's going to allow us to meet a lot of our financial goals in a much much shorter time, but it's a smaller place. I don't want to be cramped and...

Certainly, your friend's mother was rude. At the same time, you have to know when to pack it in and go home. When your toddler won't be soothed and is miserable it's a good time to call it quits.

I would like to know more about this, too. My "baby" is eight and I still have a very wide separation.  I know crunches are not good but...what else can I do?

It's her homework and she didn't cheat, so I'd let it go.  To me, it's about the same as turning her in for not studying even though she made an A on the test.
