    laundry for kids, and changes sheets on kids beds. I pay her $140 for these 7 hours in my house alone, and it likely takes about what? 2 hours tops? Anyway, I like her and I'm happy with this arrangement, but she will not do silly things like put the kids shirts on hangers or turn their socks inside out even though I have asked. Do I ask yet again? Am I unreasonable? I pay our monthly cleaning lady to clean entire house for $120 so I feel like she has a pretty easy gig on that one day when kids are out of the house for 7 hours.

She might be minimizing these small requests because you're presenting them like "oh I slightly prefer these this way" vs. "this is driving me crazy and your job is on the line". But do be sensitive to the fact that yes, these are objectively trivial requests.

    root canals (if that is possible). I now have two dead teeth because of this, no cavities, nothing else wrong with them. My dentist and the endodontist told me this can happen. IN fact, my dentist said this happened to him after he had braces as an adult. So keep that in mind when you are getting braces for your kids. The dentist's advice was to find an orthodontist who will move the teeth slowly, not push to get them adjusted as fast as possible.
