    Ours is asking that the parents don't even get out of the car, not even to walk to the front door

    But the district also isn't mandatory masks, soooo

    Last year our K did a walk your kid to the classroom a week before school started with 15 minute appointment times to space it out. My wife did that so I didn’t step foot past the entry way of the school until May even though I picked him up most days. Very weird. Not sure how it will be when he goes back next week.

    Can confirm Paw Patrol was well liked by my kids yesterday.

    My wife had to go to urgent care for fluids a while back and they asked if she was Covid positive. She said no because she had taken a couple of the Binax ones and the doctor laughed and said that didn’t mean shit. Tested again and negative but it sounds like the home tests aren’t favorably viewed

    You’re supposed to take two binax tests 24-36 hours apart. That brings the probability of a false result down very low. My house had 4 negative tests in 48 hours. I agree that it’s not ideal, but I’m comfortable with it given the lack of hallmark Covid symptoms (fever, coughing, loss of taste/smell, etc).

    The Covid world with little kids is pretty hard to navigate right now.

    I get it.

    Believe me…I would feel awful if it was Covid. I can’t keep my kids out of school all week waiting to find out. My wife works at a pediatric clinic and they have been out of tests since Monday. No slots are available at CVS/Walgreens until the weekend within a 10 mile radius. I called two urgent cares…no tests available. It’s pretty frustrating.

    My nephew recently introduced my 5 year old to bottle flipping and bottle flipping videos by this kid named Colin Amazing and now he is obsessed. It's all he wants to do. And all I want to do is smack Colin Amazing's parents in their stupid faces for encouraging this shit.

    Our son has classmates that are way in to it and it’s allegedly all they do. Our son is instead stuck on Ryan. I haven’t decided which is worse.

    Anyone know anything about child-only insurance plans? I’m on the NHS so I don’t need insurance but my post-air force benefits run out in a few weeks so I’m trying to get 1/3 covered back home. I can get her covered thru the reserves program but it’s a bit pricey since I have to cover both of us to cover her.

    I legitimately respect Ryan's mom. she's a fucking genius.

    I find the whole thing extremely annoying and hate everytime my daughter asks me to put it on tv, but that mom built a goddamn empire and she's very good at it. I'd be willing to bet she was a teacher at some point. her educational videos are very good.

    it's one of the most successful youtube channels in the US and has spawned a Nick Jr. show and a full toy/merch line.

    Even more is that it's a super limited window to do it all. Ryan the 16 year old isnt exactly as appealing.

    My guess is that it has more to do with user error and not the test itself. If administered right it's probably pretty reliable or at least as reliable as any other rapid test (which has it's own limitations)

    nah I’m asking why u need a 4 in 1 for $700? I got a 2 year old and we have gotten by with just regular car seat and $60 stroller and after he started walking he doesn’t anything to do with a stroller, about $500 cheaper then that

    We got 2, 1 for each daily driver (I said seats not seat). My boy is still 97% percentile for height at 14 months (today actually) and I do not want to buy any more damn car seats, boosters, etc. These last until they are in regular seat belts.

    My motto has always been “life is too short to spend half of it switching car seats from one vehicle to the next.” Our Christmas present to our parents before Levi was born was the base to our infant seat.

    We have two kids and two car seats. Each set of grandparents has one car seat. Generally the only time we have to move one is when both kids are going with one set of grandparents. Rarely do I have one kid and my wife has the other and outside of that we just switch cars.

    We have 2 Britax just sitting in our bedroom because when we had #3 they were too big to fit 3 across.
