I think it's okay, personally - particularly if you're in the next room or somewhere you can hear her the whole time. But it may not be in everyone's comfort level. As for the cold water, that's never bothered my DD... she'll sit in there until it's practically ice and still be having the time of her life :

It goes well with my son's name ANGUS. For a girl, I really like Angela, but it's too similar to Angus IMO. I also like Adam for a boy, but I want my kids names to start with different letters, dunno why.
DD would probably be in heaven if we took her to a nude beach these days ... she's going through a "naked" phase

Emma was born at 42wk and she was 8lb 4oz Angus was born at 39wk and he was 9lb 12oz! So no, they were quite different!

I'm not emotionally wrapped up in it, even if I spent a long time cooking something. It's just food to me. In general, I just eat to live, not live to eat.

It's insulting to the people who like the dish. It's just plain rude. Maybe I'm more strict that yon are (well - not maybe...) but I'm not going to tolerate...

I don't expect her to always eat what I make.
