My friend keeps telling me it's not too late for me to become a mom if I want to. I have PCOS and am CF because I just never felt like pursuing kids as any sort of life goal. She doesn't know that I can't afford the fertility treatments I'd have to go through to have kids. Adoption is also insanely expensive. I guess I "could" have kids if I wanted to but I don't know that I want to be $60K in debt to do it.

This summer I want to make a gift to DS & DDIL of a professional photo shoot with them and DGD. I want to get the same woman that did my wedding, and DD's graduation photos. She's very good, and not expensive. She knows ALL the cool spots around our area that make amazing photo backdrops. What do you guys think, good idea?

My son goes to an after school program run by the YMCA, 2 Friday’s in a row someone else took home my sons jacket. Leaving him without one by the time I got there. They don’t care at all, it is so frustrating. The first time luckily the parent noticed and brought it back about 10 minutes after I picked up ds but this time no one brought it back. The lady who runs the program had the nerve to tell me to check lost and found... if I had anyone else to watch him I’d Pull him out and file a complaint.

In response to a confession. Yeah, but there's a big difference between *thinking* about what/who may have touched the produce and actually *seeing* it.

My 4 yo nephew told me today that he doesn't want a sibling because they would have to be a baby first. And he said he "doesn't like babies because they go potty in their pants and you can't even play dinosaurs with them". LOL. Smart kid, haha.

Where I grew up, they hosed us off after swimming in the local swimming hole because it was teeming with swimmers itch parasites. Yep. Gross, I know. But all the kids swam there. All the kids from my street would load up in the 1967 VW van and tool on down to the swimming hole. Then on the way home we'd stop and get an ice cream cone. Then once we got home, we'd line up in the back yard and get hosed off, full blast with the garden hose. Then the neighbor kids would hop on their banana-seat bikes and pedal on home.

I'm from a small town too. I'm embarrassed to admit this, but I thought Hispanic people were only on TV until I was probably 7 or 8. I didn't know that Mexico was a real place. I thought it was where Speedy Gonzalez lived because my town was predominantly white. I've also literally been "hosed off" instead of being given a bath. These places are real and they're WILD.

I've been sick with a nasty cold for days. Yesterday I was in the car with DD20 & I flipped the mirror down and said, "Wow, I look like hell." DD, driving, glances over at me and says, "Well, mom, you probably shouldn't wear purple eyeshadow when you're sick." .... "I'm not wearing purple eyeshadow."

I believe it. I know some people from podunk towns, and what's acceptable to them is NOT acceptable in normal society. The people who used to live next door were from a small town down South. One day they invited us for a BBQ. First of all, their backyard and deck looked like something out of Sanford & Son. Then, a little boy of about 3 pooped his pants. His mother yelled, "Well if you're gonna sh*t in your pants then you're going to sit in it!" See, she was busy drinking and on FB. When she finally went to clean him up, she just took all of his clothes off in full view of everyone, got the garden hose and sprayed the poop off of him - into the grass that other kids were running around in. Last time I went over there.

My daughter didn't get the job she was so excited about. After three interviews. And they didn't even give her a reason. I'm so sad for her.
