seriously...*I* could have made better shorts with some cloth and some scotch tape than Mitchell made with a sewing matching and, you know, supposed skills.

I'm sorry. I have nothing coherent to say...I'm still slightly traumatized from Andy's swallowing.

I cannot talk about my love for She's All That. It's almost as bad as my love for Center Stage.

can't. wait. to. meet. you. :) blogher is totally chaotic and crazy and there are so many people everywhere and there's not enough time to spend ENOUGH time with everyone and you want to hang out with old friends and new friends and meet new people etc. So, I guess I can see how some people come home feeling all snubbed or whatever, but I doubt that it's intentional. my best advice to someone would be: if you want to talk to someone, go up and talk to her. or him. :)

i thought about not replying...because, well, I'm not into drama...but i just thought I'd address a few of your concerns. i, in no way, have unrealistic expectations for my nanny. two of the three of my kids are at school for 8:30-4:30 every day, which is usually around the time I get home from work, sometimes closer to five. and isabella is in school from 9 - 12. so, while i don't think she has a CUSHY job by any means, there is a TON of down down for her during the day. AND you have to remember that this is a PAID job. just like my boss at work expects certain things from me, i expect certain things from her. I would be a lousy employer if i didn't expect things from her. i AM paying her to do things like remember lunches. when she forgets, it means that i need to leave work, come home, pick up the lunch and take it to school. and of course, if this were to happen a couple times, i would be all 'accidents happen', of course, but i would do it. but it's happened several times. also, i have expressed in this post how much i love her and need her and how much a part of my family is...that wasn't what this post was about...it was just about some things that happen, some are funny, some are quirky, some are annoying, and some i would expect better. that's it. It was more about "life with a nanny" - which will be what the rest of the posts in this series will be about - than about putting my nanny down. i don't know if you came on here to pick a fight. i mean, it's certainly how it feels, which seems to happen a lot around CMBs, which is kind of a shame if you ask me.

i LOVE LOVE LOVE that going over the border was a thrill for you as a kid...because it's that way for my kids too. while the husband and I are grumbling over having to talk to customs agents and declare all our crap. heh ;)

my kids go to private jewish day school ($12,000 a pop, yo!) It was a personal decision that the husband and I made for several reasons. One, because we are NOT religious, we wanted them to exposed to some things that they don't learn at home - to learn about holidays and tradition and to learn about who they are. and two, it was REALLY important to our families. Jewish tradition runs deep to my core...my holocaust-surviving grandparents made sure my mother sent us to jewish day school, and are making sure that I sent my kids. while i have no doubts that my kids would flourish in public school, NO DOUBTS, i have lots of love for the public school system...i have been blown away by how amazing the school my children go to is. BLOWN AWAY. of course, there are days that the husband and i do the math and think $12,000 x 3 = A LOT OF MONEY EACH YEAR and i sigh and think that i could have the blackberry i want and have a nicer car and better wardrobe and go on vacation more... ...but this was important for us. so, we try not to look back and just enjoy the amazing things my children are learning every day!
