I totally agree with you. kid's education is of utmost importance to us.

How much cash do you have? Assuming you can afford either, it seems like property value most likely will appreciate for #2. I’ve personally noticed that homes in good school districts never have any issues getting the top dollar in the market.

Does anyone have any tips for how to get an exclusively breastfed baby to take a bottle. My son is 5 months old and since he was 1 month old, I pumped maybe twice a week and gave him the bottle. From around 2 weeks ago, he refuses to drink the bottle, even when he is very hungry. I have tried different bottles and ensure the temperature is warm. The milk tastes normal (I tried a bit!). :/

I feel like my kids 1st grade teacher is being too strict, but I'm not sure if this is normal or I'm being sensitive because it's my child.

All his answers were correct, except one where he forgot to fill in the blank. Is this normal? X-posting
