Am I worrying for nothing? I've been considering getting a second carrier anyway and am leaning toward the ergo.. it seems like it might be cooler? Do...
Quote: Originally Posted by LoMaH Yes, I know what you mean. But, since there's a difference between coming from a Latin American Spanish-speaking country than having Spanish ancestry from Europe, the term is used inaccurately and just adds to the confusion, I think. If we follow along that line of thinking: multi-generational Americans and Canadians would all be referred to as Anglos, simply because they speak English. We don't put the Brazilians and...

I just put [x] White for myself and both [x] White, [x] Korean for my son. I'm still baffled as to why Spaniard is included there. Hispanic is not a race, and the reason that many of the countries we think of as hispanic are hispanic due to Spaniards...

She's also aware that her hair is not straight and will never be straight, but that doesn't mean she doesn't voice her...
oops
I like Dallas, but it is very conservative. I'm kind of crunchy, black, liberal, interracially married, and an atheist. My family kind of sticks out like a sore thumb where I live. I live in Collin County, which is very not crunchy, black, liberal, or atheist So it does get frustrating. I would suggest like others to find yahoo! groups to find others like you or meetup.com groups. This has proven successful for us and I have found some really nice people. In terms...

OMG How horrible, why would anyone do that. If she wanted cloth diapers, she should have bought some, and then to lie on a child. Some people just have no sense of decency
Quote: Originally Posted by Mayrigah I am looking for a friend of mine to find a doctor that is pro-natural childbirth and pro-midwife.

Any Dallas folks out there can give me some leads? I know this is late, but you could try the doctors at the Woman's Health Alliance. They have a...
Quote: Originally Posted by singin'intherain How would you deal with this statement? It came from my dp's daughter, via my dd, so I didn't get to respond directly anyway.

Bio mom's mother, who the kids spent a lot of time with for a while, apparently told dp's dd that she is "really white". Luckily she is no longer allowed near the kids for that and many other...
