Yeah, the age thing became a factor this year for J but not co-ed. Her and her roomies decided to move to a new development that just opened but two of the roomies didn't turn their lease stuff in until late so that divided the four into two pairs...then they paired J and her roomie with 2 grad students who are 30, J is 19!!! We were so worried, I mean 19 year old teeny boppers with 30 year olds but they are two years into their MBA and each work 2 jobs so J says she literally never sees them...so far so good.

Yeah the age difference would freak me out but more from the perspective of it being their first time at college and it impeding their ability to make friends and most definitely the fact that an older person is way more likely to have a male visitor staying over. Ewww! Boys=cooties.

And Dusty?! Coed apartments?! That explains a lot.

Apparently, women are legally allowed to go topless in Toronto but, to be honest, I don't think I've ever seen any women going topless here... (my prudishness came from somewhere! Certainly not from Portugal where they're ALL topless at every beach, waterpark, etc.)

Funny enough, although it is allowed, we just had a protest demanding that women be allowed to go topless ??? Then again, the protesters are Raelians, people(?) who believe the earth was created by aliens (which I suppose makes them aliens too??).

Okay so if there is a law that women can go topless maybe they were protesting that the law doesn't specify that alien women can go topless

Yikes so now not only do I have to worry about invading aliens but also topless invading aliens

Question for any Floridians near Fort Lauderdale... Kimmidwife, Crohn's Mom, ???

Can you suggest a hotel (not expensive but clean!!!) that is right near the airport? We decided to leave a day early for the cruise, just in case of weather delays up here, but the availability of flights sucked! Our flight gets into Ft. Lauderdale at midnight... so I really just need a place to sleep, nothing fancy, as we will be leaving the next morning.

We don't leave until Dec. 29 but because of the holiday season, I want to make sure we get a room booked... You know how it is, if I don't get it done now because it's too early, I'll leave it and leave it and forget about it and before you know it, it'll be too late and we'll be sleeping at the airport!

Their by needing a dentist.

Yes I do Tesswhich is exactly why I am coming on the cruise with you. Book a hotel room for the others also...they don't technically have to sneak into the suitcases until we board the ship.

Now if you would all get over here and help me with the cleaning and cooking I would be all set...oh that is not what you meant by support?

O.K. I am off to buy school supplies with my kids. I bribe them every year. For every item they can find in the house to reuse I pay them a dollar. They think I am being all environmentally conscious or trying to reduce the clutter in the house or just too cheap to buy supplies..truth is I am just too lazy to drag out and get them and the crowds at Staples drives me insane. If the darn teacher's would get a list more than two days before school starts I could order the crap and never have to leave my bubble!

Try not to get us kicked off the forum while I am gone!

Well that was awesome! Went to Staples and sent O and her sister off to find O's pencil case and binder ring along with all the other crazy, fighting parents and kids and I ran to the printer ink section which was quiet and calm because no sane person darkens the doors of Staples the week school starts. Met O and her sister at the register and skipped out with my bag of three things. I was the envy of every parent in there


and I saved a bundle and got my shelves and drawers cleaned out!!!SCORE!

Way to go!!!

I think I'm going to use the same ploy with my kids' clothing! I'll save on buying them more clothes (won't have to buy new jeans to replace last season's perfectly good jeans) that they have and they can stop asking me for money because they'll have some from 'recycling' their clothes!

How did you go from naked aliens to cavities?!?!
Elementary...aliens probe cavities.

Question about school and dress. Do any schools over there, US/Canada, require a uniform?

Private schools mostly Dusty

Public schools do have what they call "dress code" though, mostly outlining what is unacceptable (short shorts, spaghetti strap tank tops, shirts with cursing or drug/alcohol reference, etc..)

All the public schools in our area have a dress code that requires collared pullovers and khaki pants. There is no requirement it be a certain color though, like the shirts can be any color and the pants can be black, tan, or navy.

C goes to military school so he is in a class A uniform everyday but Friday then it's black pants with school collared pullover.

Dusty, a friend of mine lives in Sydney and her two young kids(twins) go to The Scots College, not exactly sure what that is but they have the most adorable outfits. They also now have the most awesome accent!!
