    I havent followed the whole thread but I did want to mention that my mother just told me about the R’ Arush books (Garden of Gratitude and one on Chinuch that she is reading) and they really help change perspective and acceptance of heart breaking life situations as well as possibly helping change the situation.

    My parents have dealt with multiple issues from Yiddeshkeit tzaros to behavioral problems and offensive attitudes and my mother found R’ Arush to be comforting and life altering. Some people may find it simple (she likes the hebrew versions better) but at the end of the day if you internalize what it says you can actually realize why these things happen to us and how to deal with them and be content and give love that will be accepted back to your kids.

    Its not magic but what used to be a strained relationship with a few of the kids in the family is now a close tight loving and accepting one from all of them on dif levels. And each one is growing in their own way at their own pace.

    Hatzlacha!

    I just want to comment that I helped out the Parnassah Expo team last year and that I personally know so many people that got jobs through it. In fact I bumped into people months (and I mean months) later that had forgotten to mention to anyone that their job came through the expo. So everyone can assume whatever they want but being involved in the klal work, I was able to see first hand ppl that were helped. Unfortunately thousands more are in need and we have to all do our hishtadlus but the keys are in Hashems hands.

    As for this year, they are working to help not just job seekers but another section of Parnassah – keeping the business within the frum community.

    They are running to programs – YES there is a program with a job fair. However the meadowlands is huge and they took the opportunity to make a program for existing businesses to fill the floor and network everyone together to help businesses know what services there are for them.

    So if you are a job seeker there is a program for you.

    And if you are a businessman – there is a program for you.

    And its up to the businesses in our communities to join on both ends to help contribute to this beautiful gathering of klal Yisrael.

    Looks like you got plenty of advice so not sure if you want mine too but here’s the scoop from the good old shkoyach.

    Rule #1- If you dont have lots of money to spend… go on craigslist. We got so man thing in GREAT condition from there and spent close to nothing. Find people that used it for their 1 or 2 kids and arent planning on more. Make sure to see everything and anything before you buy it. We got clothes also – mostly like new or new – tons of gorgeous things for a joke of a price!

    Carseat- we found the chicco keyfit to be the most padded and comfortable and yet affordable. You can get 2 bases and it snaps in and out of both cars. My baby lasted in it till abt a year. He is very tall and really started growing out of it at abt 10 months but still managed till abt 13mos.

    We got the Stroller to go along with car seat. The carseat snaps into the stroller and you can use it without the car seat once they are big enough to sit in it and see the world. Also can be used to lay back and lay the baby in it tho I like to pad it with soft blanket when did that.

    Stroller drawback- its a bit heavy and takes space. Try it out in store.

    Swing – got a Graco swing – was pretty decent. The battery cover went missing and they sent me a new part no problem. I wish I got swing earlier cuz by the time I got it baby only fit in for a few months.

    bassinet- we got kolcraft with music mobile and vibrator it was really very good. (aside from annoying song by a lady but you dont have to push that button.) The brakes on the wheels werent awesome and like to stay in locked position but that could be just our luck.

    bathtub – no such luck. I had one that had a slope in it to hold the baby up but he hated the bath so he just kicked and screamed… somehow he learned to love the bath tub and offering bath time is like offering ice cream!

    Diapers- contrary to popular belief you DONT need to buy huggies or pampers! I got Luvs, huggies, pampers, target, walmart and baby leaked through all of them. Some ppl love the luvs – they were the worst for me. huggies and pampers were compareable to target brand so being that the case, we stick to the cheaper option which is target. if you do want to get huggies or pampers – GO TO target – you can find major sales there on the cases.

    Bibs- they come in handy with leaky bottles and jar food

    Bottles- everyone goes nuts about the AVENT bottles. Baby sitter made us get also. They have one maila for a babysitter- it feeds the baby quickly. It has one maila that is really a MAJOR drawback: it has a leak guard ring. this is annoying because some of the leak guard rings dont fit properly and all the milk spills all over anyway. The rings that do fit nicely are great… but if you lose them – you’re doomed! You cant use the bottle without the guard ring or you end up with 90% of milk on babys onesie and 10% in his mouth!

    I found the NUK orthodontic bottles to be the best. They have an air spot for air to go out when sucking so baby gets less gas and lied alot.

    passifiers- docs and nurses tell you not to- DONT listen. It is the biggest lifesaver and you’d rather baby use the passy as a passy instead of Mom as a passy!

    Pump- Medella pump in style is the “in” pump from what I hear. Many insurance cover and many dont. If they dont… Do not despair if you qualify for WIC (which you should be getting if you are low income as it is now! Important to get your nutrients and they pay for it!) WIC gave us an AMEDA electric pump and we were very happy with it. It takes patience to get the whole pumping thing straight but its great. If you dont get enough milk… DO not worry. You can speak to a lactation consultant and there is nothing wrong with supplementing with formula – just watch out for kashrus on dif types. If chalav stam is an issue – you can use soy or J&J has a chalav yisrael run of similac as well as sunrise brand which is WAY cheaper.

    Nursing pillows-The Boppy was a LIFESAVER tho I dont know about others. I also got a pillow for my bed thats shaped like the back of a couch… hence turned bed into comfortable place to lean back when feeding baby.

    Recliner – a Must whether its a rocking chair or a full recliner but great for feedings.

    Nursing sheilds – nobody tells you about them but it saved me many moments of tears when I was in agony and it taught baby how to suck correctly.

    Nursing pads- I found nuk disposable breathable to be great… evryone has dif prefernce…. you’ll have to try out what works for you.

    highchair – we got safety 1st reclining and moveable height and baby LOVES it. Mother in law calls it his “throne”. It has removeable tray also good for cleaning (and for milchig fleishig!)

    nail clippers nose bulb etc- many hospitals give it to you along with other stuff but if not you can always get in target.

    Changing table – If you have no room for changing table you can always get changing pads that are washable and use them on the floor or bed. make sure to get a few in case of lucky leaky times.

    co-sleeper- When I went to visit parents someone lent us a co sleeper that attaches to the bed and it was really great.

    Pack n’ play we use the even flo brand but you can get graco also and if you will use it as a crib for a while I suggest you get the plush mattress to stick in. I didnt know abt it till after I got a crib and my poor baby slept on the hard mattress.

    Cribs- they cost ALOT but get a good solid one. Watch for recalls! You can get on craigslist also but sometimes the price is almost worth it to get new. The jewish stores sometimes have some nice deals and nice sales.

    And most important- get ready to ROB a Bank!!! Having kids cost lots of money and you just gotta do what you gotta do!

    I definitely would look at it as small flag but wouldnt drop it like that! Maybe he was uncomfortable to say about quitting on a first or second date not sure as to how you would take it and his coping mechanism was to talk is if everything was regular.

    What is important in relationships is communication so if you have no other reason to say no, I would say go out again, AND be bold and bring it up… you need to tell him that you know he isnt working and that you need him to be open with you and honest with you. you can see how he reacts to that and see other important parts of his personality. I can understand why he would have felt uncomfortable – not that he was right but its not necessarily a red flag – tho look out for more red flags.

    Oh…. way back when… I used to be addicted to YWN and used to comment on all the news sites and lo and behold they decided to start a coffee room… at first I wasnt into it. But then i decided to be… and joined and became one of the coffee room zomnies that never slept… and watched as more and more mods joined 😉 remember when we were all guessing who’s a mod??

    I realized I was so addicted when I started asking for help from fellow CR ppl to clean off the snow from my buried car (is asdf still on here anymore???) then I realized I was in a bubble that had to pop and so I ran for dear life from the CR with an occasional here and there.

    Every so often (like once in 3 months I check up on it but… )

    Remember when the dvar torah page and rule page and shmiras halashon pages started???

    wait… so how did I find the coffee room again?

    Many friends of mine have been discussing for the past 3 weeks about the fact that they are dreading Pesach… it is very hard.

    SENSITIVITY at a normal level is really all that is wanted.

    They want to see your kids… they dont want it in their face.

    They want to be treated normal…

    They DONT want to be stuck babysitting your kids or doing all the work arounf the house cuz all the mommy and tatty siblings are busy with their kids and cant help. They dont want to be stuck cleaning up after you and your kids b/c of the same reason.

    They want to be acknowledged and not made nebuch.

    whatever you do… DO NOT ASK QUESTIONS about their personal life and if they have been to a Dr and anything like that. Trust me- if they want to share it they will. My policy in life (not just infertility but in all sitch) is I dont ask questions abt ur life- but I am here to listen and be a shoulder to lean on if you need to talk.

    My sister married many years no kids, got pregnant and lost the kid in 6th month, we all wanted to know info and be there for her but we were careful not to probe. and she confided in me that the worst feeling she has is when ppl come and bring it up, or give her hugs and mussar and “chizuk” and all the stuff she didnt ask for. Just move on and have a regular conversation and thats it!

    If you are a sibling YOUNGER than your older sibling of IF and have kids, your sibling doesnt hate you (prob. loves you) but it is very hard. Still be sensitive yet dont hide things from them. give them the respect of an older sibling.

    Have a good Yom tov! Hope nobody has to dread Yomtov this year!

    Original Poster— it is very kind of you to be concerned and ask so that you can be there for your sibling! Kol Hakavod!

    Just from my dating experiences… you can feel very lost or confused when in it… So many times feeling not sure. Nice guy and nice girl but how do I know is for me? Thats what ppl feel. And shadchanim push… try again if no reason not to go out. sometimes they are right… and unfortunately sometimes not. Ive been pushed… almost too far but BH was able to suddenly see clearer before it was too late. Others are not so fortunate. BH when I found my spouse it was just right- even with a few ups and downs along the way but I learned never to judge bc it is just hard to know what you need and know who the other psn is!

    R’ Yehoshua Guttman was a Rebbi for many years in Yeshiva Toras Chaim of Denver. He was a great man and Rebbi to many for YEARS after they ever entered his classroom. People turned to him for eitzah and help on every aspect of their lives and he gave everyone his time. Many woman and girls as well turned to him and he took care of them as if they were his own children.

    There are so many people that need him still today… and they are beyond sorrow that he is not here to guide them.

    The Guttmans moved to Lakewood some time ago (closer to their married chidren) and had a shul in their house.

    A few weeks ago his children dedicated a Sefer Torah to the shul in memory of their father.

    They would be touched if anyone could send them videos of the event as they only have one consisting of 2 min.

    Thanks

    Don’t see much of a discussion here-guess I’ll have to give my 2 cents.

    I definitely have tried to google my name before, however I didnt find much- only boring info about some stranger out there that stole my name 😉

    I’ve gotten shidduch calls about friends- and I almost fell off my chair the first time someone told me they googled the potential shidduch and had questions on what they found!Maybe they had the wrong person.

    On google, I found some nasty info about a relative with a not so common last name and found someone else carrying his name is well with rather strange info. I was glad when a picture came up and saw it was someone else.

    Tomim Tihyeh- I see, the only thing is someone once told me that excelsior requires more than the clep for english. Do you know anything abt that?

    We really need to be happy with what we have… And I am happy to say I was zoicheh today to be able again to stop myself in my tracks. When we get 100 we want 200- So someone dear to me had given me assistance today and I was hoping they could help me out also for something in the future. At first I was disappointed when they said they really cant and then i said, hey wait a second- they just put themselves out (time and money) for me today- am i a loser that I will ignore it?!? And it really set my perspective straight. thanks e/o for the chizuk in this thread of working on ourselves to be better ppl!! I hope e/o else is taking it to heart as much as I am!

    Thanks for the DT!!! so nice… well really trying to work on the first week middah and also this week as it seems is being happy with what you have. While I was davening today in Shema Kolenu I decided to ask Hashem to help me be happy with what I have. I decided that its not human to only be able to on my own and the only One that can help me is HKBH so why not ask Him first! And so I was in a happy mood today… and BH Beli ayin Hara, it hasn’t gone away yet! Even tho I had reasons to feel otherwise!!

    I have an idea… we all can either pick our own one towork on each week or the Mods will TELL us which middah it will be that week. (or they can nominate a CR member to set it out) cuz this thread is so beautiful yet messy that I dont know where to start and will prob give up all cuz I can tdo e/o amazing ideas at once and I cant pick which one cuz e/o is saying s/t else

    nu…. mods… what do u have to say??

    sounds great! I nominate mdlevine to be in charge of giving out what midah everone should work on. He seems to be amazing at doing chessed.

    thanks beacon! Reminds me of Rabbi Rietti’s tape on simcha… every heard it.. I cracked up doubled over while listening to it!!!! He has a whole ditty about “If only I could just get into High School, If only I could just be out of high school, If only I could get into this college!, if Only I could get out of this college!, If only I could have this shidduch, If only I could get out of this shidduch, If only I could have kids, if only my kids would be out of the way!, if only my kid would start talking, if only my kid would be quiet… if only my kid would get married and out of my [email protected]…. etc… (I dont do justice to R’ Rietti but add an accent and his sing song and it makes you plotz!)

    BTW I tried my “happy technique” again today and it is mamish not shayach how it works. I started to be down when I heard something that reminded me that I was upset, and I squashed it like a daddy long led before it surfaced, the blood oozed out! ok, so I look meshiggers talking to myself everytime and telling myself…”Oh no you dont! You are happy! You KNOW you really are and that Hashem is running the world and knows gantz fine what He is doing so don’t fall into the trap!” but you know what… it helped again so put up with me if you see me looking like schizon on the street talking to myself!

    I love your humor but this really is a help page that probbaly wont get too much help for peeps!

    Azi and R’ Jo: No blanket statements. We all know the halacha so thanks for quoting it. as for Azi- I have a picture of my great grandmother in poland wearing a shaitel. No shpitzel Joseph. A shaitel (yarnlike and not hairlike but still a shaitel) I have other relatives that didn’t. Its like someone in 100 yrs from now blanket statementing that Americans didnt cover their hair. Yesh V Yesh (forget the dif circumstances, not the point!)

    Curious: Rating how frum from the shadchan… I’d tell her/ him depends on my mood and what time of day. In the morn, when i am in bed, a 1 and half. at 12 pm a 52 off the charts…. at 6 I guess a 8.222543789…. !!!!!!!!!!!!! (sorry asdf… stole that from you too )

    Itzik: had something to say to you on a few posts ago but now I forgot so oops. i guess I wont say it.

    NOW KEEP THIS ON TOPIC OR ELSE I WILL BE VERY VERY NOT HAPPY AND YOU DO NOT WANT THAT TO HAPPEN!!!! CONSIDER THAT A WARNING 🙂 hehe i sound so scary!

    Moish… man, you better not marry a Yekke 😉 Go chassidish maybe then you have till after Maariv– the next day 🙂 (that was said as a tease to Moishe’le not as anything against chassidish ppl) oops- just called you s/t probably your bubby calls you- dont kill me! it was a slip! (I tend to add ‘le on at the end when I tease ppl)

    It definitely is better to put it on by the zman, but just like when I’m davening and lose track of what where and when they tell me (figuratively) to chop arein whatever is left with kavana, so too, if you missed the zman, chop arein whatever you got left in the day. So you’re good man, you’re good!

    (adsf, I can’t stand this, now you got my brain saying Man at the end of every sentence! Oh man!)

    Mod-72- when it’s 95 degrees and up I beg for the chilling ice weather. And then when I am outside freezing the nerves off my bones… I beg for Florida! The grass is always greener….! But L’maisah- a bit of cold air don’t do no harm and it helps keep the shvitz off so 🙂 bundle up (talking to myself) and be happy!

    nossond… very interesting… I like that. Where did you get it from?

    Syrian, I like your devar torah too! I had a few situations where i remember thinking that Hashem should protect me please because I was on my way to a mitzvah and was close to getting harmed or stopped etc… and I just kept thinking this. It occurred to me that maybe my zechusim dont equal enough to the other “stuff” and who says I deserve protection etc… but BH without details, even in close calls, BH I was spared and able to carry out the mitzva. The power of a malach for a zechus is unbeleivably powerful! Thanks for the reminder!
