idk if that link works or not, but if not:

The documentary my wife worked on is out on Hulu today! She worked as a cinematographer on this documentary. The producers found via her work with her own business and reached out.

AFTERSHOCK

Cliffs: Following the deaths of two young women due to childbirth complications, two bereaved families galvanize activists, birth workers, and physicians to reckon with one of the most pressing American crises today: the US maternal health crisis.

Kiddo is struggling with the idea of moving, but she was going to have to change schools after 2nd grade (next year) anyway. :hs:

Parenting is hard, but I think being closer to family will be a huge benefit. Sister's out of here sometime this summer, so no family left here. :(

I moved a lot as a kid

You get used to it but recognize that it’s traumatic to them

Reno or Carson City. Closer to my parents who are in Reno. We were going to fly out in September, but my parents may be canceling their planned trip here in August, so we may move it up. We were planning an entire year here and then a move at the end of May 2023, but we found a house that could be ready in January. Dealing with leaving here sucks. I'm so pissed I have to leave this house. :(

Sorry you are having to leave. Hope it goes easier soon.

Reno seems like a good place to raise kids

Not my weather but coming from TX will probably be not bad

Good luck!

The reports of their school districts lagging are purely because of per pupil spend.

My Kindergarten teacher is on the state senate. In 2019, NV became the first state legislature with more than 50% of women holding seats.

My kids moved to a different city around that age, changed schools and everything.

They make friends fast.

my kid finally asked if she could play roblox since her cousin from poland plays :o is there anything i need to know? she's already proven that she's really good at telling trolls to get lost, and she thinks it's funny to tell me about all of her adventures (and misadventures). we already talked about chores=robux and how it's not an expected thing.

what am i missing? :o

The internet chat is something I'm not wanting to deal with. I don't like the idea of the "purchase" aspect of it, either.

Kiddo plays Minecraft on Creative mode on our own server so only people with access can chat with her.

Robolox is a cesspool of weirdos and pedophiles so be aware of that. I would say its fine as long as they only play with their IRL friends but invariably they'll network with their friend's friends who you have no idea who they are.

I ended up blocking the entire damned thing at the router

she's been playing minecraft for a while, but she doesn't have many folks to play with :hs: i was iffy about roblox for a long time, but i caved when she and her cousin asked if she could play. i told her that she should let me know if anyone starts being a bully or mean or anything to her, and she completely agreed, saying that i was better at handling trolls than her :rofl: i also told her to tell me if anyone started getting weird and sexual, and she was like, "well, that's when i tell them i'm ace and to heck off" :rofl:

But, @Jinx - with as many articles as I can find on this, I would stay away.

I would sit there with her if she's already been on and exposed to it. I'm a hard no on anything that directly involves engaging with strangers. The only people on our Minecraft server are people in our family and closest friends.
