Thank you all for your AWESOME posts and PMs! I submitted my essay this morning. I used a few posts from this thread, and a direct quote from one PM. My Prof is a real hard ass, but I think it was an A paper.
I shop at the typical places for my girls. I'm sure some of it wouldn't fit your criteria, but a LOT of it would. Old Navy has ankle-length dresses right now. Some of them have straps, but you could pair these with little cardigans. Some of them have regular short sleeves.
That zebra outfit was over the top. Honestly, you think you're going to find that at Baby Gap?
Hannah is great and all, but the prices... ouch. Just check the sale racks at the mall; Gap is the...

I would check with the DMV whether inviduals can get your name from a license plate number. I know it could be done years ago, but I thought that changed. You could also get your plates replaced, perhaps claiming they were stolen so that the old ones would be voided (I usually would not suggest...

Yes, my daughter is capable. But she would still be making "messes" every so often, and this isn't syrup or cracker crumbs. It's feces. It isn't just disgusting, it's unsafe. Eventually she will do it, but I...

It's cute! What can I say?

* I joked about throwing my daughter out the window at LEAST once a week when she was a baby. I also referred to her as an a**hole. As anyone who watched Sex & the City knows, Samantha had the same sentiment for Miranda's baby. IT WAS FUNNY.
And I love my children. more than my own life a hundred times over.
There was a FG episode where Quagmyre found a bound and gaged cheerleader in a bathroom stall... maybe it's been mentioned already, I didn't read the entire...
