I could probably just start my own thread for that one...
Is it okay if I walk into the woods and come out when dc are 5?

My kid is stuck behind the couch. Should I take advantage of this time to get some cleaning done?


(both a title suggestion and a true story )

Is two weeks too long to ground my two year old?

We celebrate it as a secular holiday, but we keep it "G rated" with dressing up as animals or people from history/other cultures. No scary/gorey/'evil' stuff like Evie's Mama said. We go to some kind of harvest party at the school or a local church (or both ) and sometimes we carve pumpkins...other times I just chop them up and cook them
On a more 'spiritual' side (although this isn't a religious thing for us) we are staring this year celebrating Samhain on Nov 1, with gathering the kids together and telling stories about our ancestors.

I thought I was the only one who had such things happen- I have pictures of my oldest stuck behind the couch when she was about 2.5


Yeah, I should have gotten her 'unstuck' but it was so worth the picture.

none of my kids have gotten stuck behind furniture. DS once claimed he couldn't get off me (I was sitting on the couch and he draped himself across my lap) because he was stuck.

packing BIG box of wooden blocks!

TAO: "Do these glasses make my chin look FAT? PIC"

"Yard sale during trick-or-treating ...anyone tried this?"

Lactivism: "my cheese did not set properly ... any way I can save this batch?"

Crafts: "Tie Dye disaster. Halp! How can I take my kids to church like this? update: pics"

Mindful something "organic gasoline. Is it worth the extra 50 cents?"

Swaps: "formula coupon swap ... who else is in?"

Tee-hee! I definitely did a double-take on this one.

How about...

"Buying my kids their weekly supply of junk food at walmart and saw a mom breastfeed. I'm traumatized, help!"

I figure it could fit into breastfeeding, activism or healthy living.

Very funny, all of them, especially the glasses for TAO.

Though my 26 month old has a swallowing disorder and is STILL on formula, so I'd definitely be clicking the formula coupon swap in high hopes of lowering the grocery bill.
