    So many of you know that my life's pretty much a wreck right now. We're in the process of trying to move, sell the house and get settled into a new one. As such, I'll need to take a leave from the forums until at least the end of October. I'll be way too busy to keep up on things, as we're...
  7. Single Moms
    Ugh, being a single parent sucks. Its worse in a way that their dad is SO involved. He signs them up for stuff and I get stuck taking them. Not that I don't want to, but I don't have much time. I feel like I am stretched to the point of breaking. I feel so depressed because I can never...

  10. Question and Answer
    Hi everyone! Just wondering what your thoughts are on having your kids doing things during the March break or summer time. I'm trying to make plans for it and am very undecided. For the March break, I can't decide whether or not to register DD1 (who is almost 6 years old) in the local...
