We had the live-in Ukranian auntie ... sigh, that was wonderful.  :D

My kids have formed a street gang. You start shit with one, and the others will retaliate.

Saw that at the park today. Some brat pushed one of the twins and the other twin and her brother came out of NOWHERE to dispense justice. 3 VS 1 BEATDOWN.

This is one of the best things about having lots of kids close together.

When Jeremy was around 8 or 9, a bully a few years older was harassing him to the point of tears. The older boys didn't find out until Jeremy got lost coming home because he tried to take a different route to avoid the bully. The next day, I get a call from the school. Carter and Jak had joined up and scared the shit out of the much older, much bigger bully. To the point that the bully's mother went to the school and complained about it.

Has worked well ever since. No one picks on any of them - even the girl; maybe especially the girl - because it's a gimme that there will be a posse after them if they do. :D

"Your welcome"

 :cry:  Little Tim is going to grow up to be like Timmay if this keeps up.
The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.

Sure, he's cute now, but wait until he sets the bathroom curtains on fire, wrecks the family car, and drops out of college to support his preggo high school girlfriend, Shaniqua.

Ah yes, something to look forward to in the growth of one's offspring!

I thought the Purple One (the smart one) was shot by a deranged fan who had a copy of Goodnight, Moon on him.

dayhome, PC for daycare? How expensive is it in your neck of the woods?

Daycare is a large facility with 20 or more kids and several staff.

A dayhome is run out of someone's home.  Our is regulated, but before we were with an unregulated (read: under the table) dayhome.  It's a nice lady with three young kids of her own, so to make ends meet she takes in 3 extra kids.  I think that's the max the law allows.

So it's nice because it's a small setting, she knows Tim very well.  The problem is if she has a problem - say a doctor's appointment - suddenly the day home is closed.  There's no other person who can take over.

It's around $600 / month.

Alright. My kid also goes to a dayhome. Ariel seems to like it. There's only 5 other kids & her.

Ouch. I couldn't afford that but then again, 10% income taxes must be fun.
