Dec 5th 2010 1:54PM We have three grown children and a seven yr old. Of course the young one gets spoiled at Christmas. The older ones still get gifts for holidays and birthdays. We also have in-laws and a grand baby that gets gifts at Christmas. The young ones get more but the older one get more useful gifts. Two daughters are still going to school. There are things that can help them get through school. It doesn't have to be expensive. Just to know that we love them and are thinking about them. My parents always gave gifts even after we were grown. The intent was the same but the gifts change as we grew up. I can say my favorite gift was a warm pair of gloves that my Daddy picked out himself. Someone could spend a lot of money but it would never mean as much to me as those gloves.
Jul 13th 2010 4:31PM We use many generic and store brand products. There are some that I stay with name brands. Mayo, Peanut Butter, Soda, Ranch Dressing, but I will say that when buying name brands, I use coupons. If you know where to shop and watch your prices you can save a lot doing this. Now days it's important to save where you can while keeping the family happy with what you buy. It's all about preferences. I just choose to save where I can so I can buy the little extras that make life fun.
Mar 10th 2010 7:17PM Mine has been known to do that but he would rather stick his big ole cat head in my tea glass and drink. After the tea is gone he likes to lick the ice. Sometimes he grabs the ice out and takes it to the couch to eat it on his favorite arm. I swear he thinks he is human. He has to have his own pillow on my bed. If he doesn't have enough room he pushes me over. I think he believes that he is in ancient Egypt and should be worshipped.
Dec 28th 2009 11:27PM I once knew a lady who named her son Joshua Door. I always kinda felt sorry for that kid if his friends ever found out his middle name. Or worse yet if he was bullied in school and they made a game of slamming the Door. I hope not.
Dec 21st 2009 7:24PM Quite frankly, what he did was wrong but half? No. There is a prenup that should be up held. I think he should pay child support and uphold the prenup. I have always seen her as a gold digger from the get go. Yes he was wrong. He should have kept it in his pants. But trying for more than the prenup no. That just puts her in the same light as the others. Maybe I am wrong for thinking bad things about her but time will tell.
Dec 15th 2009 7:08PM I have actually read here a few people in support of the teacher. I feel for what teachers go through but that does not give them the right to do something like this to any child for any reason. I can see where the sound of the beads in her hair could be distracting. There are other recourses to take with children that are disruptive in class. At this level you can handle what ever problems come up. When they are older it is harder to handle. This teacher should never be able to work around children again. I am rarely in favor of suing but in this case Yes. Not so much for the money but for the fact that this teacher is still teaching and could possibly do something worse next time.
Dec 4th 2009 10:10AM Exactly what are his type of people? Black? Bi-racial? Politicians? American?
How much do you weigh? Are you exactly what guideline say you should be? Maybe it should be law that everyone should have to weigh in weekly and pay for any weight changes.
You really need to go back through the looking glass to Wonderland but they probably tossed you out for saying the white rabbit was fat.
Nov 19th 2009 9:23AM I would love to see Martha go up against a real chef. Or better yet, Gordon Ramsey. He would have her curled up in a corner begging for mercy.
Sep 27th 2009 9:33PM I used to work in a daycare in the infant department. You wouldn't believe how some parents are so worried about their babies weight. Babies thin down as they become mobile. I had parents that wanted us to dilute formula by half. Only feed every five to six hours no matter how much they cried. Not to feed them but half a jar of food when they should be getting two jars. Everybody worried that their little darlings were plump when they weren't moblie yet. We had a child that was so big that we nicknamed him the Michelin baby. By the time he was two he was tall and slim like his parents. Everyone wants their children to be healthy but I'm not so sure that being a size 0 in high school is healthy.
Sep 11th 2009 7:07PM Gotta give the kid credit, he didn't yell or use bad words. He was respectful but firm. I can't say that the dad shouldn't have corrected him though. But then again, if someone was trying to take away my bacon, I would be ticked.
