Thought I found the perfect preschool for my son. Then I learned the preschool has accepted a couple of not-fully-vaccinated kids. We will have a newborn in the house this fall. Is that a dealbreaker? [more inside]

Create a mini 'classmates.com'

I want to create a web page that would allow alumni of my little public elementary school to a) see a calendar of evening events they'd be welcome to attend b) browse a list of opportunities to volunteer, and, most importantly c) 'register' with an email address to join a mailing list and receive notices of the above. Since these are children, everything has to be moderated and likely a parent will be in charge of checking to make sure kids are who they say they are. I'm somewhat social-networking challenged and know that there are 'groups' for this sort of thing on yahoo and elsewhere- is there an obvious choice for this?

Please help me raise a geeky child

I'm planning on taking a trip to the Comic book store for free comic book day. Can anyone recommend some titles for my 7 year old son that are funny rather than crazy violent? He likes magic, knights, star wars, greek gods (we're reading Percy Jackson now). I'd be happy with some superhero suggestions, but I don't want anything approaching Dark Knight style storytelling. Any suggestions for me?
