Jun 9th 2010 10:20AM I have to say, that I also have "unusual anatomy". My kidney is also located where my gallbladder is supposed to be, I only have one kidney, I had two uteri, one and a half ovaries, no appendix, and still, when I went to have my gallbladder removed, they removed my gallbladder. When I had a hysterectomy, they removed both of my uteri and nothing else that wasn't supposed to be removed. There IS a way to navigate around "unusual anatomy" and I think that this doctor should have been given a little more than a $5,000 fine and 50 hours of community service.
Jun 3rd 2010 10:04AM I am with the others when they say it is not just a behavioral issue with ADHD. My son is 7 and without the medication I can tell him to go throw something away and he will forget what he is doing on the way to the trash can because he gets distracted by something else in between here and there. His teacher watched him for two weeks while he was supposed to be working on his own during school and she counted that he got off track an average of 27 times in 10 minutes. That is once every 22 seconds! Other than his lack of focus, he has no behavioral issues or social issues for that matter. He is only on medication to help him focus on what he is supposed to be focusing on. Nothing to do with lack of parenting, thank you very much!
Jun 2nd 2010 12:29PM Barb, Kathy: "She looks good after having all those kids"? It's not like she had 8 different pregnancies that she had to gain and then lose the weight from. And plastic surgery does work wonders for that baby weight :)
May 19th 2010 8:19AM Yeah, she is still very skinny, but she is not all bony anymore. She at least is showing a little bit of muscle tone. She looks a lot better than she has in the past, although still too skinny.
May 18th 2010 9:05AM I have two cats, one with a boring, Disney inspired name, "Jack" after Jack Sparrow because my 5 year old son had an obsession with the movie. The other one is named "MeYuki" which means "beautiful snow" in Japanese. MeYuki got her name because she was white with blue eyes when she was born. I work for a Japanese-owned company and I showed my manager a picture of her her and he said "MeYuki" then told me it meant beautiful snow. I loved it, so that was her name! She started turning gray when she got older, so now, she should be called "dirty snow", but we just call her "MeMe".
May 5th 2010 1:57PM I am sorry you feel you have to look like a man to be successful and to be taken seriously at your job. I am a "barbie" I guess, because I like to be girly and feminine and wear dresses and summery skirts in the warmer weather. I like my strappy sandals and open toed shoes and I wear make-up and do my hair, which is down to the middle of my back. I also have a pink coffee mug which I use every day. In fact pink is my favorite color. I don't think people look at me like I am just trying to get laid just because I can enjoy my femininity and hold my own in the corporate world. My position with my corporation? Vice President of Export Sales. PS I am only 31 years old and I have worked very hard to get where I am :)
May 5th 2010 10:24AM And that, kaybrah, is exactly what Mizuki was talking about when "parenting skills" was mentioned. You are condoning your kid beating up another kids because the other kid is fat. So the other kid deserves to get beat up by your little meathead kid because he is overweight? That's not going to cause problems with your kid when he gets in high school.
Apr 14th 2010 9:05PM Indiana Kitchen. Comes from a place in central Indiana, and you can find it in grocery stores all over the country, including Publix Supermarkets in the South.
Mar 9th 2010 10:47AM In English, next time, please. Everyone saying that they never lie to their children is lying. Anytime you tell them, we are going to go to the park tomorrow, then it rains, you lied to them. It doesnt matter the reasoning behind it. You tell them we will go to the movies this weekend, then your car breaks down and you can't afford it, you lied to them. They don't understand that you can't afford it or something came up, so all they see you "you said we would do this and we didn't". They don't care why, they just think you lied to them.
Mar 7th 2010 8:39PM Brutally honest: Are you "Mandy" by any chance? Seriously a disrespectful stepchild can destroy a marriage even if there are no other problems. You can't blame the new wife because his ex is crazy. Obviously there could be a reason they are divorced. And if her second marriage worked out, then obviously it wasn't her. STFU because sometimes being what you think is "brutally honest" is really you just being a bitter, hateful and resentful ex-wife.
