    1. Do you know if Amazon stopped doing their 99 cent movie of the day deal? I’ll be really sad if they did!

      • Chief Family Officer says:

        I don’t know for sure, but they haven’t been doing it this week so I’m afraid it’s entirely possible. Hopefully this is just an experiment that will fail, and they’ll go back to the $0.99 rentals 🙂

    2. Venessa says:

      CFO- What do you think about transitional kindergarten? It works great for me since my son will be able to benefit, and I won’t have to pay for two years of preschool. But it could be a bummer for my daughter, who’s May birthday means she’ll be starting school with kids nine months older than her who have had a year of ‘school’.

      • Chief Family Officer says:

        I’m going to have to give you one of those “it depends” answers – but it really does depend on your daughter, and how ready you think she is. In my personal observations, some 5-year-olds with late birthdays are perfectly ready, and some aren’t. If you don’t feel she is, you can talk to the school about putting her in the TK class anyway – they may be more than happy to accommodate you if there’s space.
