May 13th 2011 4:57AM This child was prompted with her answers to the questions....especially about the "wrinkles". Notice when she was asked why she "wanted" botox, she answered "I don't know" and her mother (and I use that term loosely) prompted her about the alledged wrinkles. Kiddie pageants should be banned.
Apr 29th 2011 7:52AM I love it!!!!!! I thought that so many times when my kids were small.....especially with my daughter who DID NOT sleep through the night until she was 3 1/2 YEARS OLD!!!!!!!
I have a question for everyone who's opposed: WHO decided that f*** was a bad word (or s*** for that matter)? They're just made-up words that evolved from someone's frustration. Someone else decided that they didn't "like the sound" of them and deemed them inappropriate for society. Every kid in this country has heard them (most likely in their own home) and will end up saying them as well. It's up to parents to decide what is and is not appropriate, not our government or society. It's also the parents responsibility to teach their kids to know when such language is NOT appropriate (ie: school, church, out in public, etc).
Bottom line: If the title of this book offends someone, THEY DON'T HAVE TO BUY IT!!!!!
Apr 28th 2011 7:36AM Wouldn't it be an absolute RIOT if these two just eloped instead?? All the unnecessary fanfare for nothing...hahahahaha!!!
Apr 22nd 2011 6:34AM My son's middle name "Wayne" came from both his father and my father, both who had the first name "Wayne". It is also his grandfather's, his uncle's and 2 cousins (one is actually a girl) middle name. He carried on the tradition by giving his own son the same middle name of "Wayne". My daughter bears the same middle name as me, "Beth" and she plans on carrying on the same tradition with her first daughter (whenever that happens). I'm so glad that my children think enough of their middle names and the tradition behind them to use them for their own children.
Apr 12th 2011 7:21AM WOW....political correctness has reached a new level of stupid and ridiculous!! Yes, Easter and Christmas are traditionally Christian Holidays, but that doesn't stop non-believers from celebrating them or reaping the benefits from them. When I was in school, we learned about all different forms of religious holidays...and no folks, it wasn't a private school. It was a PUBLIC elementary school. At Christmas time, we not only took part in Christmas-related themes, but also Jewish-related themes as well (sorry, but back in the early 70's, Kwanza wasn't known yet). But it was still called CHRISTMAS and EASTER!!! And while I respect everyone's right to believe (or not believe) in what they wish, I DON'T believe the few minority have the right to completely erase what the majority of us DO believe. Political correctness?? BULLS**T!!!!!!
Jan 6th 2011 6:47AM Perhaps the "Roman" Catholic faith should lighten up about the rule that a priest remain celibate....allow them to marry and have a family. Perhaps (in most cases) there might be less molestation of Altar Boys if they did allow this.
Dec 15th 2010 4:22AM She's a little cutie!!! Happy Birthday to Josie!!!
However, at the age of 44, I think it's time for the Duggars to stop having babies. Josie's premature birth should have been a wake-up call that Michelle is getting to be too old. They were lucky with Josie, but the next one may not be as lucky. Preemies can suffer from a whole array of medical and learning issues. And after the age of 35, there's a larger risk of Downs Syndrome. While I respect their belief that having 19 kids was part of God's plan, God also gave man the knowledge to invent birth control. I just don't see using birth control as a sin.
Dec 6th 2010 8:49AM My son's name is Jason.....and that's what I intended everyone to call him. Although his sister and I affectionately call him "Bird" sometimes (because of his premature birth and being small for SO long) and his father affectionately calling him "Jay-bird" when he was little, ALL of his friends, his wife and his in-laws insist on calling him "Jay". I gave up on him being called by his given name a long time ago. Fortunately, family members (grandparents, aunts and uncles) do call him by his given name. Even though I cringe a little when I hear him being called "Jay", I remind myself that I don't have to hear it all the time (only if they happen to be around...which is rare) and that I also have a (sometimes used) nickname for him.
Dec 2nd 2010 8:39AM When I was married to my ex-husband, we had NO trouble conceiving. But after my 2nd child was born, I had my tubes tied. After my divorce, I met my present husband. After his divorce and 4 children, he had a vasectomy......both of us making a conscious decision about it BEFORE we knew each other existed. We would have loved having a child together...even talked about what he/she would have looked like, etc. But knowing it was impossible, not to mention VERY expensive to even try having everything reversed (and yes, even tears on my part) we decided on the next best thing.....we got a dog (something we could love, raise and nurture together). Although she's not human, she's still our baby. She has filled the void we were both feeling. I know it's not the same as if I/we had never had children at all, but having our Lacuna helped us. And holidays are a blast with her around.....Santa leaves presents for her and she KNOWS they're for her even before they're unwrapped.
Nov 16th 2010 7:24AM The absolute WORST flight of my life was about 8 years ago. I knew there was going to be "issues" when upon approaching my seat, a 4 year old was in my assigned seat. Her parents were across the aisle in their assigned seats with her 2 year old sister. When I got to my seat....the kid wouldn't move. I looked at her parents for a few moments and after a LONG pause stated that their kid was in my seat. They looked at me and RELUCTANTLY removed her so I could sit down. That 2 hour flight felt like 2 years! The air conditioning broke down mid-flight, the 2 kids were understandably cranky and noisy and then out of nowhere....the 9 month old baby 2 seats ahead of me PUKED all over the place. Everyone was annoyed, but these things happen when there are kids on a flight. When you buy a plane ticket, you're taking the chance that you'll have a screaming, puking kid seated near you. Just the luck of the draw....you have to deal with it. The airlines are never going to have "kid-free" zones since parents have to pay for the seat that their kid is occupying.
