On Did Your Parents Lie About Your Age To Get Lower Ticket Prices, And Did That Scar You For Life?

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.

On Walt Disney World's New Fantasyland Less About Rides, More About Celebrity Encounters

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.

On 1 Thing Will Make You Jump, Jump

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! :)

On Everything You Need to Know About Diapers, Part 2

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.

On Everything You Need to Know About Diapers, Part 1

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!

On 'Can We Talk Finances?' 'Not Tonight Dear I Have a Headache'

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.

On The Cost of Insomnia

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.
