re: Lousiana woman plants china seeds - Benne Wafer
Forget Amazon, I keep reading about people who said they ordered seeds from WISH, forgot about them, and then the orders started showing up at the same time. What is with the numerous people who think [u]Wish[/u] is a reputable place to buy seeds? ...

re: Kids and screen time - Benne Wafer
My oldest was like that about YouTube. She just couldn't handle the sheer amount of content that never ended. She was fine with other apps that had some sort of stopping point but getting off YouTube triggered horrible tantrums and she had the worst attitude. We had to take the app off her tablet an...

re: Kids and screen time - Benne Wafer
We don't really have a strict daily time limit but the kids have to do things before getting on a screen. Get dressed, pick up their rooms, chores, assignments (when in school). They also have to go outside to play or find someone to play with. Just having them do those things distract them from bei...

re: What's the smallest house that you could tolerate living in? - Benne Wafer
I think it depends on your lifestyle. Our old house was 2200 and it was more than enough when both my husband and I worked outside the house and the kid went to daycare. Even with all the kid crap. Then he started working from home and then I did, we had another kid and did preschool over daycare so...

re: Married people OTOT, how old were you when you married? - Benne Wafer
Married my high school/college sweetheart right after turning 21. Divorced a couple of years later. Married again at 29, he was 39. 12 years and 2 kids later, still going strong. [quote]What I would say, advice-wise, is that the person is much more important than age. That said, the younger yo...

re: I’m honestly inquiring. What’s the point of going to the beach? - Benne Wafer
It's a cheap vacation with small kids and less stress overall. If you take your own car, you don't have to worry about installing car seats in the middle of a hot parking lot. You can bring kid gear with you easier. Flying is stressful because you will have those stupid car seats and then have to de...

re: private school tuition vs. e-learing - Benne Wafer
My youngest is in the same situation as your buddy's kid, private school 3K moving to 4k next year. They tried e-learning but you are right, it is pointless at that age. The school acknowledged as much and they are crediting us one month's tuition for next school year. Everything I am receiving...

re: Cloth Diapers; Help me form an argument against this route. - Benne Wafer
Will the baby be in daycare? Most require disposable diapers. I had a few friends who were into cloth diapering and they fell into two distinct groups. One side claimed they chose it because of environmental reasons or cheaper but it was really some sort of maternal status symbol and being a part...

re: Amazon dilivery April 21, for all four items, new today - Benne Wafer
That is what I thought too, delays for third party sellers. I ordered a few things Sunday and they are still arriving in a few days. Supplements, sandwich cutters, hangers. The only thing delayed is a swing for the play set and it will still get here next week....

Not only does our district have a summer feeding program (at a few schools, not all) but there is also a program during the year that provides food for the weekend. It is a popular volunteer activity, they pack up snack foods into gallon bags for teachers to discreetly put in students' backpacks on ...
