In response to a confession. On a similar note, I wish people would stop referring to pets as practice kids. DH and I are CF and we got a dog and a cat soon after we got married and had a house. Our pets are our pets--NOT substitute children. And we love that about them--they can stay home alone while we're at work, don't need to be bathed daily, can keep up with us on our long hikes, and the best part: they don't talk!

DGD2 fell down about half of our stairs yesterday. She was holding her dad's hand at the top of the staircase, she yanked her hand away and just sort of grabbed the railing and rolled forward. I was standing at the bottom of the stairs and saw the whole thing, and was able to catch her about halfway down. She wasn't hurt at all, just scared. You know who was more scared? ME! Oh man, that was the scariest thing that's happened in my life in a very long time. I freaked the fuck out. Internally. External cool, internal freak out. Meanwhile, I'll be buying a baby gate for the stairs for when she comes over.

i like animals, but sometimes i feel like the only childfree person in the world who doesn't care to own a pet.

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.
