Re: “How will my kids ever learn about late fees and rental protection?

Sad confession but since having kids renting DVDs has become our main source of entertainment (good-bye fancy restaurants and cool lounges - see you again someday maybe...). When hubby and I want to have a "date night" it involves watching a movie at home after the kids are asleep. Going to the video store was the only part of our "date" that involved us leaving the house and now that is gone - sniffle.

Re: “Don’t discipline your kid — he might be the next dalai lama

This is something I think about all the time. I'm trying to raise my children to know right from wrong but these spoiled brats don't play by the same rules. In fact, they think the rules don't apply to them. I worry that when my kids get into grade school and beyond, cheating, plagarizing etc. will be the norm. How will honest, well-behaved kids fare? Will universities start to fill up with kids who got there by dishonest means? Because being snotty at the playground at five years old will only get much, much worse - especially when they've had the tacit approval of their parents to behave like they can never get in trouble for anything. I really hope at some point society says enough is enough.

Re: “Don't let the bedbugs bite — or end their reign of terror

I too am completely freaked out by all the media reports on bedbugs. So much so that when we planned to take a week's vacation this past summer I spent hours trolling The Bedbug Registry (www.bedbugregistry.com) to see if the hotels we were planning on staying at were on the list. And while, thankfully, there were no reports I still checked the mattresses, headboards, pillows etc. when we checked in.

So far so good but now my son's kindergarten teacher wants to do a class project where a doll gets to do "sleepovers" at each student's house (long story but it does have an educational purpose). Umm, I think it will just be between our family and the doll that it will be "sleeping over" in the garage. So bad is my paranoia that I don't trust where this doll has been!

Re: “Confessions of a Beauty Addict

Please - as the only female in my house, making sure I have my morning alone time with M.A.C. is the only way I can stop being pulled into the vortex of testosterone that surrounds me. I know people may think I try too hard but they can suck it up. I can't help it that I come from a long line of women who felt there was no greater crime than being seen out in public without full hair and makeup. And while I think there are far greater crimes than that, having kids has made me look so tired and old that going without makeup is just not an option. I simply could not do that to the general public.
