    comment Too many variables at play — troubled “son”
    "we don't mind if you skip classes, but we'll mind if we know about it" - if he's a bright kid (which it sounds like), this might not be so bad. The way it's being done though (disrespecting the teachers by leaving in the middle of it without permission) sounds like more of an issue than skipping itself though.

    Very useful to differentiate between labour contractions and "practice" (Braxton-Hicks) contractions.

    comment How to introduce foods to my little girl?
    @DaveClarke - our daughter did the same, though after refusing (and us taking the food away since she didn't want it), she'd get even more upset because she didn't have the food anymore! I imagine her thought process as something like "So that's what 'No' means..."
