re: Need some more baby sleep help - Queen on 3/26/17 at 7:56 pm
Routine. Routine. Routine. And routine again. Not just all day, but a bedtime routine. Like bath, bottle, book, bed. Also try no stimulation for a little while before going down (like no music or tv or playtime that could get him riled up). Mine is 16 months and still winds up in our bed when we tra...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: One Night in Memphis (recommendations) - Queen on 3/6/17 at 12:34 pm
Unless you like dry rub barbecue, I don't actually think Rendezvous is all that good. Central BBQ is my favorite. Downtown has a bigger dining room than the Midtown location if you're there on a weekend that may be busy. You can't go wrong with BBQ nachos on their house-made chips (be sure to specif...

[quote]My sales tax is probably higher than most. Franklin, TN is a beast with its sales tax.[/quote] As I recall, state sales tax is like 7%, but the law says municipalities can't tack on more than 2.75% additional, making the max 9.75%.

Some daycares have policies to deal with repeat offenders.

Parents were responsible....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

Check to see what of these things are open, but you have lots of options. Unless you are an Elvis fan I'd skip Graceland. Memphis Zoo is good, you can easily spend all day there. Great for kids. If you like art you can do the Dixon or the Brooks. BBQ of course. I like Central for BBQ nach...
