Michele Reiter of Chicago might be a novice when it comes to taking care of a baby (she’s just days away from giving birth to her first), but she’s an expert when it comes to attending baby showers. She’s honored many women throughout the years in the "ladies-only" shower fashion.
DEAR PRAGMATIC PARENT: I have 2-year-old twins and have been researching preschools in the city. There seems to be a lot of competition for private ones, and the ones offered through the public schools are extremely variable. I'm not sure how crazy I should go applying to different places.
