Well, I have three under 4 so I couldn't tell ya I think you are lucky to just have one 2yo (however, my own 2yo is a total pita right now, so maybe it would feel worse if it was just him) Our 3yo is getting a lot calmer and is pretty laid back. Although I am very sick of having to dress people, change diapers, fix meals, etc... I think parenting will be enjoyable once the kids can take care of their basic needs without my help.
As some might gather from my posts, my relationship with my mother is far from good. However, within the past 6 months to 2 years, she has been on a steady decline that appears to be getting much worse much faster. She has a shopping addiction and now a hoarding problem. Her house is so full of stuff you can hardly walk in most of the rooms, and she cannot park her car in the garage because it is filled with junk. She is withdrawing from everyone, and in fact no one that I...

Remember, what gets into your milk is what is in your blood, and even when you are very drunk your blood alcohol level is well below what would be considered alcoholic. just wiki'd it, a blood alcohol level greater than 0.4 would kill you, and 0.4 is pretty much nothing in a drink.

Henri reminds me every time we watch Yo Gabba Gabba that "DJ Lance Rock is NOT Daddy." :

Kids have ears like bats, I swear. Henri started saying "What's up, homey?" To everyone he saw after a pizza delivery guy said it to him He's also been known to make up words. Henri and Paddy have their own secret language too. We will never know what the words "bye-spy", "oolo" or "hemma" mean, but they think its hilarious to use them!
My first "experience" was with a guy I dated in high school. The relationship never got serious enough for me to see his stuff, but he told me that he was not circumcised and seemed nervous about that, like he thought I would be grossed out or something. I didn't know the difference then, and I told him "Okay..well whatever you are you are. I don't care" Then I met my DH and that was my first experience with an intact guy.
