I think instead of telling your DD that it is inappropriate to do in front of others, you could phrase it a little differently. For instance, "touching yourself like that is a private act and should only be done when you are alone. Please go in your room and close the door if you wish to continue." I also thinking telling herself to be gentle so she doesn't hurt herself is OK.. but really if she was hurting herself.. she wouldn't do it. Your doing a great job momma.

s I saw Rudolph on halfway through last night too. I quickly turned it to something else. My three and five year old don't quite get that you can't just rewind everything. So I didn't want to deal with it. I am sorry it hurt you that he said that.. I remember at that age telling my mother I hated her. I don't remember why.. she wouldn't let me do something. I think it is just the age.

I have never in my life had one. I also have not painted my nails in over 17 years. (there was some report that it was dangerous while pregnant when I was pregnant with my oldest and I never pained my nails again.) I cut/trim them when they get jagged but that is about the extent of my nail care. It's just not very high up there on my priority list.

How long have I been able to X out the annoying swine flu report and the spot light section??? (the swine flu was annoying.. the other thing.. just in my way.) I just noticed it this morning as I was trying for the 500th time to get get a friend request I already accepted to go away. Hehe.
