In an effort to move on from the other thread, Lol......  What is helicopter parenting IYO?  Do you see it only at school or in other settings as well?  What does it look like?  Provide examples if you can, Thank you.

Wow this thread jumped in the last few days lol. 

I am not a good one to go for wine recommendations as I do like the cheap(er) wines lol. My favorite is Sangria though and yes, I buy the bottled ones and love it. lol

my love of good wine is why my weight loss has basically stalled but then I ask myself "wine or being thin" and the wine wins every time...

oh RLGL (blast from the past username!) I do love a good Sangria, my favorite taqueria makes the BEST in all the land... mmmmmm had some just last week as a matter of fact!

Yeah, well, I'm not drinking wine and my weight loss has stalled, too.  At least you're enjoying the wine!

I can lose weight and drink regularly - but not every day. And not much.  and I have to exercise my arse off to do it.   I have a car magnet that says "I Run for Wine".

An alternative to this issue, could be to hire an Aupair as a nanny, this with the purpose of having a new cultural experience! it could also be very helpful in terms of daily help for chilcare :)
