Quote: " STBX, I know we havent discussed this for a couple of weeks, but I wanted to offer again the invitation to use webcam for talking to DS. I really think that DS would benefit from it, as he could see you and perhaps participate more in your nightly conversations. IMHO, this is as much as I would put in...or with the link at the bottom and times that you will be available with DS. I've learned after two years of doing this that it's best...

It's in her genetics. All I can do is try to make her aware of her limits. Other kids are not like this, I think. Ugh, I agree. It's just in my DS blood to try risky things. Sometimes it makes my heart skip a beat. Other kids won't even try what he...
I dunno. I let mine jump....as long as he's in the middle....but this is also why we have a savings jar for a trampoline. Lol.

I watched 15 mins of SpongeBob the other day when I was home by myself before I even wondered why I was watching it.
When you can't find your lipstick because your purse if full of crayons, toy cars, snotty tissues, the lovey, a juice box, etc....

Ha, ha. This thread has me LMAO. My son, whose only 4, is totally fixated with those tomato plants that grow upside down and will completely freeze to zone into the TV when this commercial comes on. Scary how those things suck people into the TV. although, some of that stuff is pretty cool.

O.M.G. I haven't gotten past page 5, Lol., but I'm so glad that I'm not the only one that screams these things in my head. Sometimes I have to take a deep breath IN so these things don't come OUT! Nothing to rant about right now, but, MAN, I could have used this as a place to put some frustration the other night. Geesh, it's threaputic to just read, sympathize, and laugh. :::
