My DH and I are living with my parents for the time being while I job hunt. Dear. Gods. I don't even bother to clean off the dining room table anymore. The instant they come home they put all their junk on it (even though it has a home - it's just the first spot to put their stuff down at) and then they never move it. No one knows how to throw an empty can into the recycling bin, and I now know where I got my habit of leaving clothes in the dryer too long after...
Really? No one? I'm the odd nerd out here? lol.
I've decided that, prior to going to school, I'd like to pursue my MCSE certification in order to get a better job (which would allow me a better chance at supporting my family and doing school at the same time). How many mamas here have gotten Microsoft certified after having kids? I plan on doing the MCP Programs Specialist certification first (covering the whole of Microsoft Office Suite). While the tests are kind of expensive, I could feasibly do one every 2-2.5...
My 2 year old and DH started a stinky feet game, where he holds her in his lap and sniffs her feet and says "Pew! Get them outta here!" over and over. Now she walks up to people, sits in their lap, and shoves her feet in their face while saying "Outta here!" She also knows how to mosh, and does so at length to Danko Jones and just about anything else I listen to <.<

Being a foster parent who truly wants to help children who need a safe and loving place to go is a beautiful thing, and I applaud anyone who has the means and the hearts to do such a thing. However, not all foster...
Edit: Quote removed This is what I'm talking about. We have real issues of abuse and neglect that go on for years. And then we have infants removed from caring and nurturing arms because a doctor doesn't agree with breastfeeding instead of supplementing. This is not a case of CPS being good or evil. This is a case of CPS not working as intended. The best case scenario of a functional CPS is that real issues of abuse and neglect are attended to, investigated with...
The unfortunate part of this thread is that CPS is being generalized as one big organization with complete oversight. It's not. It's a fractured system that can work phenomenally well in one area, and not at all in another. My best friend worked for several years with mentally handicapped children - mostly severe brain damage and Down's. The caseworkers in their area would be breathing down her neck for saying a single word wrong (or in one case, when another worker...
I figure, if you can't laugh at yourself, then you don't have the right to laugh at anyone else. I laugh at myself regularly, and everyone around me too. Call me evil
The issue these people bring up, which has been shot down time and time again, is that the amendment that allows the government to levy taxes was never properly ratified. Different districts received different versions of the amendment (mostly slight spelling and capitalization differences), and because of that they state the amendment is null and void. The Supreme court has disagreed, officially, a few times. It is legal and the people who say it isn't do not have a leg...

I've tried to find some, but the ones I have found are too far away for me to get to (I can't drive and my H has the car at work 6 days a week anyways :/). I would like to go, and try to make some parent-friends, but I just can't find any...
