Re: What would some of the chapters be called in the book about your life?

These are all really funny or interesting. I would like to know a little more about some of the less obvious chapters. Like "Why is My Window Still Broken" or "A dead Squirrel". I liked the Rowan love story too. :) "Living free and Traveling" "Unexpected Baby" "Unexpected Husband" "Back to School: C...

How to Announce Baby #4?

I never wanted kids, but whatever, I had one and I didn't want her to be a spoiled only child, so I had another one. They were pretty cute and not so bad as far as babies/kids go. I kind of like them actually, so I really encouraged my husband for a third. He's not so bad either, but we are (were......

Re: Ouch

When downhill skiing, I was gawking at somebody that had biffed it on the slope thinking of how embarrassing it must be for them, so I didn't take a curve as sharply as I should have. I went off the side of the trail which was a straight drop and ended up with my skis caught in a tree with me dangli...

How More Female Police Officers Would Help Stop Police Brutality

I came across this article last summer and I can't remember if I posted it in here, sent it to my sister, or just appreciated it quietly, but in the wake of this week's events, I searched for it today because I find it relevant to the issues the U.S.A. is dealing with right now. There is a lot of an...

Re: Kids are full of LIES

That is pretty hilarious. That said, at least your kid can clearly write his name and can make a convincing argument. :) I remember my oldest kid's first attempt to deceive me (earlier this year). She was playing with her brother in his bedroom when he started to cry. She comes running out with his ...

Re: What was your grade point average?

Re: Feels like Disney's trying to be a leader in Female Leads

I really enjoyed the Jungle Book with my family in theaters. It was very visually pleasing and both the 5 year old and 3 year old were entertained enough to NOT try an escape. That's got to count for something.

Re: minimalist kids birthday parties

Yes! This was always my dream job as a kid and maybe secretly as an adult too. Unfortunately, I need to make a great deal of money to construct my empire, so I had to go into finance/accounting/planning. :(

Re: What is the longest book you ever read?

I read the Song of Ice and Fire books (also referred to as the Game of Thrones books for those that only watch the HBO series). They were lengthier than what I normally read. I am used to finishing off a good book in a day or two, but these each took a bit longer. Kids could have contributed to this...

Re: should college be free?

It would be nice to not have to chose where I should put my limited amount of paycheck toward: paying down my student debt or trying to save for when my kids go to college. I want to provide something for them so they don't have to deal with the largest monthly payment being to pay student loans (as...

Re: What did you hate hearing when you were pregnant?

I'm usually easily annoyed, but I wasn't really bothered by the questions about girl or boy, due date, or if I'd picked out a name.

I get keloid scars, so an injury bigger than a paper cut leaves a mark that looks like I lived through a horrific car accident.
