Best of the Forum: Move to Help with Nursing?


Should we move to the City to help with nursing?

I am a newbie, both as a mom pregnant with my first, due in March, and on these boards. We currently rent in the Palo Alto area and plan on remaining here at least through the birth. My job is fairly demanding (more than 40 hours per week) and is based in the City. I  take Caltrain for my commute.

3 Small Discipline Habits You Can Train

While I’m not a fan of trying to be disciplined every moment of the day, there’s no doubt most of us could use a little more discipline in our lives.

I stumbled upon this amazing concoction one day almost by accident. I love to put together strange combinations in the kitchen, but who would have thought about nutritional yeast in a smoothie?

For me it does not create a positive body image. It highlighted things I didn’t accept about myself.
