I never said that I wouldn't! But because J has it together, she can point everything about everyone out and make them feel inadequate behind the guise of "being helpful."

Becky I am seriously concerned about your kids.  I have seen photos from last summer and the beginning of this month that are extremely, extremely concerning.  You don't have to believe me, that's fine.  You can continue to call me names if you want, but you should be calling your local resources right now.

If she is not leaving the house with her kids in car seats (and according to her, she is not leaving the house at all), nobody is in danger and it can wait until tomorrow.

...and...this thread has officially taken a dive into the OPPOSITE direction it went this morning.

How about back to the spotlight thread?  I had a few questions for Katie, but she can answer those when she comes back on. 

 

Amber, you're up next!

Jaimee, different states have different laws. Some say they have to be in a 5 point until 4 years and 40 pounds. I think I've known one person IRL who has been 100% perfect with their carseat use, it doesn't keep me up nights.

Those are the rules I've read.  

Yeah, 7 out of 10 parents use them incorrectly.  I don't think that makes it okay.

I think Becky and I are handling it well via PM.  Everyone can get back to the regularly scheduled programming.

Sara, you wouldn't believe how big of a deal cream puffs are at the Wisconsin State Fair...

Yeah, and then you think about how kids rode in cars even a generation or two ago - I remember sitting in the "way back" of my family's station wagon, completely unrestrained, playing with dolls. Maybe I got too many knocks to the skull, but that's about it.

 

...Mad Libs? How about "binder clip"? (I'm using the "what do I have in my immediate sightline" approach.)

I should stay away from Wisconsin, then.

We're deep fried everything in my neck of the woods.
post #699 of 734
Yeah, people used to not wear seatbelts at all. I'm failing to see why that makes it acceptable. Know better and do better. Children die from improper carseat usage. Sorry i think it is a big deal.

Okay seriously, I miss Mad Libs like crazy. I remember many a ROFL-kind-of-laughing-fit from those as a kid. Memories...
