I've decided that the cute is a self defense mechanism.
I'm years away from buying again, and I still poke around now and then to see what's around. It's fun lol.
That's awesome. I've considered getting a TA just for that reason, I'm planning to rent a big house or two for everybody so I need to know how many will be there to book properly.
all my years working with kids (over 10 years), has always had the 3's being far worse than the 2's. It's crazy!
Oh man, the attitude of a 4 year old girl...... this is why I am TERRIFIED of having a daughter. Boys tend to just be honest and straight up with you. No real manipulating. But girls- masters at it! And my mom and I had a horrible relationship all through my teens, so I know that will be payback galore.
I literally LOL'd at your "cute is a self defense mechanism". LOL I wouldn't doubt it!
Honestly, buying is so crazy to think about right now. But here in the GTA, renting a house just isn't worth it. You mind as well just save up a bit more and buy a townhouse- the rent on full houses is insane.
I would suggest getting a TA- I don't want to have money discussions with family and friends. I would rather have a buffer between all that and just talk to them about the fun stuff, not the potential awkward conversations around finances. I think a big house (or two) is an awesome idea! My friend went to a wedding in LA, and they did that- rented out a house and nearly 15 of them fit into it! She said it was such an amazing weekend, so awesome idea!

The site is crazy helpful though. I've never been too savvy in party planning.. so planning a wedding was a lot of guess work at first... but now I've gone as far as writing the ceremony script, building my OOT bags, doing iron-ons for my bridal party.... things I probably wouldn't have done without the site....
Keep on trekkin....
You'll get there, don't get discouraged! Just make it a challenge- you need to find 6 or 7 threads to post on in a day- whether it is just commenting something nice, like an idea, or within a current discussion (like this one!) it adds up faster than you would think!
The attachments are just a bonus to the amazing ideas you get off of here. The OOT bags are incredible, and seeing people's pictures is pretty awesome. WO!, your ceremony script is done already?? Good for you!!!
