Dear Readers,

In honor of my birthday (today!), the one-year anniversary of starting Miriam's Advice Well and my second pregnancy, I thought I'd share my thoughts about how to talk to pregnant women. If you're also pregnant, a close personal friend, or my parents, feel free to sit back smugly and appreciate how much more sensitive you are than the strangers, barely-acqaintances and bus riders I'm about to lambast.

Right now a lot of changes are happening with myself and my close friends — getting married, buying homes, having babies. Since we're all on about same timeline, I guess it's inevitable that some people feel the need to act competitive around these changes. Personally, I find this exhausting. What a waste of time and energy. Do I approach the offending friends? How do I make sure that we don't poison our friendships with this petty nonsense?

Dear Miriam,

I'm looking for a place for my son's upcoming Bar Mitzvah, but venues for a party sure are expensive!  Do you have any ideas how to find a reasonably priced but still great location?  

Signed,
Price Bar-rier
