Since a new thread hasn't been started, I thought I would go ahead and do it.

I need a laugh, anyone have any good jokes?

Here's a stupid joke that I think is really funny:

Q: what do you give to someone who has everything?

A: Penicillin!

Here's one, it has a little bit of language in it so be warned.

A mother was working in the kitchen, listening to her five-year-old
son playing with his new electric train in the living room. She heard the train stop & her son saying, "All of you b*astards who want off, get the hell off now, cause this is the last stop! And all of you b*astards who are getting on, get you're a*ss in the train cause we're going down the tracks."
The Mother walked into the room where her son was playing and said "we don't use that kind of language in this house. Now I want you to go to your room & stay there for TWO HOURS. When you come out, you may play with your train, but I want you to use nice language."
Two hours later, the son came out of the bedroom & resumed playing with his train. Soon the train stopped & the mother heard her son say, "All passengers who are disembarking the train, please remember to take all of your belongings with you. We thank you for travelling with us today & hope your trip was a pleasant one." She hears the little boy continue, "For those of you just boarding, we ask you to store all of your hand luggage under your seat. Remember, there is no smoking on the train. We hope you will have a pleasant and relaxing journey with us today."
As the mother began to smile, the child added, "For those of you who are p!ssed off about the TWO HOUR delay, please direct your complaints to the fat b!tch in the kitchen."

nak - ing here

haven't time to quote but just type a few snippets!!

Cerys has rolled a few times both ways but she'll only do it if there is really truly something she can't have and she wants it (ie marbles, small toy cars etc etc ) She is a very laid back baby and my easiest yet!! (I ordered an easy one )

No crawling or anything much. It's funny if she was my first I"d be worried -she's not that mobile but truly they are all so different. I'm just enjoying her laid-back ness.

I have a million things to do here (civil union is tommorrow)

hey just a quick note made a great discovery ................... molded maternity bras!!! I have just realised what they are for - so that my big *meaty* breastfeeding nipples don't show through tops I LOVE THEM!!!! How did I miss this invention

ok gotta go...............will post pics after the event

I think those Lily Padz achieve the same nipple-less result.

I had to get molded non-maternity bras for the same reason as needing them when nursing ... I looked cold all the time. I know some purposely try to achieve that look ... I'm not one of them.

Thank god a new thread! Those 800+ reply ones really get me and I forget to reply to people... but before I do:

Witt, happy wedding!

Juice, Rachel started by banging her head into my chest repeatedly. That counts as communicating in my book!

Today she did "more" More what, I don't know. She seems to be trying out a few things to see what will happen

Welcome to the new folks! Jessica3, we tried sweet potatoes and avocado. The avocado was NOT a go. *sigh* But she likes the sweet potatoes ok. We're not rushing. momtophr, man that's a big preemie! My first DD was only a few ounces more and she was almost a 42 weeker!

Crawling... ALMOST! Rachel has been up on all fours rocking furiously for 2 weeks now. It's very nerve-wracking as I can't leave to pee lest she start crawling while I'm gone Tonight before bath I took her diaper off and she was up in a tent position on hands and feet, pushing her knees forward. So she moves her knees and has started moving her left hand only so she's stuck going in a circle until she figures out that she has to move the right. She's got the swivel down pat though

Hmm, molded maternity bras. That might be nice. I am permanently *at attention* as well, but I also wear nursing pads. When I wear light colored shirts you can see the circle of the pad very clearly, and I can't wear thin shirts or my boobs look lumpy : Frankly I'd rather have my nipples sticking out, but it's not very sexy when there's a big wet spot over them. Sigh.

Jokes... I'll have to come back.

I remember when ds was around 15 months and we were in town visiting, we made our way to see her at the rehab facility she was staying in at the time. Ds was melting down and needed to nurse. He was my first baby, and I was starting to be uneasy NIP with a toddler. I started nursing him and just lightly talked about him needed to nurse and she said she nursed all four of her children. I asked her when they weaned, and she said "When they wanted to." This lady was just so sweet. Never asked for a thing from anyone. She always had a smile for us. I never heard her complain about anything. She always called my ds a "dandy". Of course, she couldn't remember the girls' names, but she loved seeing them.
I'm so sorry for the loss. That really sucks.

Thanks. I was too. Thanks to everyone on the well wishes. She was a very sick baby. I was seriously worried. I called the doc again yesterday about her soft spot. Because other people could finally see w hat I'm talking about. Doc said it was normal with illness and if I wanted, I could bring her in and he could recheck her. Today it is mostly down. She has squealed a bit and played a little. Her temp is still running around 101 rectally, she is still too quiet and too still, she is whining and clingy and she still acts like she has a headache.Thiss is all out of character for her. I still hate it that she is sick, but I'm breathing a little easier. I have accepted that I have given her morer medication than I would like to. My mom came yesterday morning and bought her antibiotic. She was going to take us to the medicaid office, but it was freezing rain and the girls were so sick. So she just paid the $11 for the antibiotic. After 3 doses, I really saw her take a turn for the better, so I'm getting okay with giving it to her. I feel like I should give her some acidophilus. Anyone have any recommendations? Nnow I'm really, really sick. Can I take Tylenol if I give her tylenol? Will she get it from breastmilk and the dose I actually give her? Is that too much for her? I have an awful cough and everything from my diaphragm up, hurts. how did I take care of 2 nurslings with this cold-thing? Thank goodness for my mom, who did our laundry and dishes, while also caring for my SIL and her 3 kids and their house because they're all sick too. Am I really the offspring of this super-mom?

Yes I can crawl. And so can my babe. She can cruise also. Pulling up on furnture and moving about. Although, there has been none of that the past few days.
More later. Babe is sleeping, must get in bed.
But first , Congrats witt. And tomorrow my Mattie is 7 months old.
