I think the point is, driving with a baby isn't reducing traffic congestion or helping the environment. But of course, if the sign says two or more people, that's two or more PEOPLE. Not "commuters". Wasn't there an issue a few years...

I don't know that they really have a purpose.

3 has been the most difficult age so far. I thought I was lucky to miss the so-called Terrible Twos, but DD has made up for it in a big way
I don't mind soft drinks on special occasions

My parents love my kids, but only in small doses. They're not exactly the type begging to spend more time with the grandchildren ... that's okay, I've never been an obsessive "kid" person either. I love my own, obviously, but I've never been the type to get excited about young relatives or anything. I'm just not good in the playful sense.

If I, in actuality, ever pooped or farted (we call them 'squeaks' around here, to save toddler induced embarrassment), perhaps they would give me one of those urges. Also some, but not all, thrift stores. OMG I could've written this. Bookstores, particularly secondhand bookstores will be the end of me. And I'm pretty bad at thrift stores too, especially if...

A little one is easy to ignore, but a big bang always sends me into fits of laughter, even more so if it sends people running for the nearest exit or rolling the windows down frantically. Why is this? I'm an adult. I should be able to ignore it and move on. But NO, I giggle like a kid. How perplexing... ...and...

If I stand in one spot reading labels while I crack one off, I may as well wear a sign on my shirt that says "yeah, that green cloud is what you think it is". Crop dusting is totally my MO. Amen to THAT!!! Has anyone noticed, for the record, that certain stores make you need...
