My birthday is September 10, but I was in kindergarten with kids who were older than me, so I suspect my mom forged that somehow. Can't blame her. Daycare is $$$ and there were 3 of us. I tried to get away with fudging my son's birthday for 6 months on our museum membership, but my in-laws outed us. It's really hard to fudge kid ages once they talk. They will tell anyone how old they are. Anyone.
My friends took their kids (3 & 6) to Disney World for 6 days last summer. SIX DAYS. Do you know what their favorite part of the entire trip was? Meeting Ana & Elsa. I couldn't believe it. I have never had a Disney experience, but I found this to be insane.
@Ester Bloom @meaghano Did y'all see the "Dirty Jobs" episode with the cloth diaper cleaning service? Horrifying.
Man. I gotta get on this 529 business. My boys have tiny savings accounts, and we have life insurance, but that's it so far. My one thing was to give in and make a dentist appt to get a mouth guard so I can really never have sex again. Just go ahead and rub it in some more, @esterbloom! :)
I didn't even know the pail horror story. I'm glad I didn't. I gag just having to dump out my diaper genie.
It's illegal in my state for daycares to use cloth diapers. Also, there's the cost in resources which I bet comes up in Part II!
You have a 529. I am impressed! I gotta get on that when the double daycare bill is over. I guess I will need two 529s? This is sort of like saying I'll want to have lots more sex when the baby sleeps through the night. Hopes & dreams.
@Meaghano City Mini for sure. It's the best.

I love this. Your kids will never forget that shopping trip. You are a good mama.
I like putting a TV show (I have already seen) or audiobook (with sleep timer) on my phone. Listening to something gets me out of my head. My husband uses baseball games on his MLB app.
