Just wanted to give you kuddos for handling this situation with grace -- and countering the "just cover up" suggestion so well.  It really, really bothers me when places that should be kid-friendly...

I recently drove past the apt. where DD1 was born -- and yeah, I felt a pretty strong attachment to that tiny, gross place. Some great memories happened there.

My first birth was a 100% natural homebirth.  I know that many people feel that they'd like to have a homebirth for their 2nd after they have had a "successful" birth in the hospital.  I can tell...

I was definitely in the camp of not having 2 in diapers, ie no closely spaced babies.  My plan was about 3-4 years apart.  So much for the plan!  It is rather crazy-making to have so many little...

None of mine are on the list!  But I'm not surprised to see that so many very popular names are also "hated".  But unless a name is something truly rude or terrible, I don't understand why anyone...
