No. Well, not that I know of. I don't think so. Oh great, now you have me worrying that I've offended someone! Honestly, I don't write anything that I wouldn't say to someone's face. I poke fun at people sometimes (me included!), but it's just in fun and not meant to offend.
I do have one question though. Did Clay get disciplined for doing what you told him not to in the first place? Such as no time playing for a while or another discipline? [in regards to Clay picking a banana at the Dells]
Nope. I never discipline any of my kids. It takes too much effort.
i was wondering if your book is available here in Singapore? [it's a country in south east asia btw]
LOL! Thanks for the geography lesson. I know you can preorder it on Amazon right now, and it looks like it can be shipped anywhere. If you go towards the top of my blog, on the left side, there's a link that will take you directly there.
I agree, it is a law on the books somewhere about giving flatlanders a hard time at every opportunity... "at least we don't have to pay to drive on crummy roads!" [making fun of people from WI]
You got me there. I completely agree. The minute I cross over into Wisconsin, the potholes and the tolls disappear.
Would it bother you too much if I told you that I had Lou's for dinner tonight?
YES! Especially since you're all skinny! I used to like you Michelle!
I have used Denise Austin tapes and the whole time I am exercising I think to myself, "Oh yeah? You may be skinny but you have no boobs!!"
LOL! Good one! I'll have to remember that!
Dawn - What about your computer or laptop? Can you play your dvd's on them?
Duh! That never even crossed my mind! Thanks a lot! Wait a minute....gee, thanks a lot! There goes my excuse not to work out for a couple weeks.
I just looked up that lamp company...as others have said its not looking good. I have a suggestion! YOU ARE A BLOGGER WITH LOVING READERS...we start a campaign on your behalf, you tell us, do you want us to live chat them for you or do you want us to overwhelm them with mail to their address demanding your part or your money! You are also friendly with many other bloggers who can enlist their readers to do the same. What do you say? You want us to go to war for you?
LOL, you guys are really awesome! Thank you so much to all of you for taking time to research that crummy company and give me advice on getting my money back. I called my bank to dispute the charges and I filed a complaint with the BBB. Now, hopefully I'll get a refund soon so I can buy the part from someone else. Thanks again for all your help!!!
At what age do you push the issue[potty training]
I personally don't. I pushed it with my first one and it took him for-ev-er to train. It was not pleasant. After him, I learned not to push it. They'll train when they're ready. It may be at 2, maybe not til 3, maybe not til 4, but eventually it'll happen. I wrote a potty training post HERE and there are a lot comments with advice if you want to read. (Oh my gosh, I just reread that old post and what the heck was I talking about??? Skinning cats??? I must have been sleep deprived when I wrote that!)
I LOVE IT!!!!!!! But I bet if you try that first next time, it wont work!! [kissing Brooklyn to get her to settle down]
I'm positive you're right. It'll never work again - not in a million years.
Why is the baby always the worst?
So we don't feel sad about not having any more.
Hey, where's your picture? :)
Yeah, and thanks to all of you for asking me for a picture. I have such a complex about my forehead now. I really never noticed how huge it was. Maybe my hairline is receding?! Oh sheesh!
But I genuinely thank all of you guys who said you liked my hair. It makes me feel a little better about the flaming orangeness of it all.
Oh, and I'm sorry you have orange roots. Hey, I had a WHOLE head of orange in 7th grade when I just *knew* that spraying Sun-In would make me beautiful!
I did too! What were we thinking??? Sun-In is NOT for people with brown hair.
Hey, Dawn, I had a question. I just recently saw your "purse dump" post and I saw that you have a bunch of lip glosses. I can't find a good one that I actually like; what's your favorite type?
My favorite lip balm type product is Alba Coconut Cream Lip Balm because it's all natural and it tastes like coconut. My favorite gloss right now is Buxom Big & Healthy Full-Color Lip Polish by Bare Escentuals which is ridiculously expensive, but it has that menthol, tingly feel to it. I don't wear lip gloss all that often because I hate when my hair blows across my face and sticks to my lips. Ewww.
What do your kids say about it? [my hair]
What do your kids say about it? [my hair]
They told me it looked stupid and orange. They're gems, no?
Would you like to share with the rest of us your secret to losing weight?
Sure. Eat fewer calories than you burn.
Why are you and your kids continually wearing short-sleeved shirts in pictures from the dead of winter? I thought it was strange that Lexi had on a summer nightgown in the picture you posted from Christmas morning , but now you have on a t-shirt in January.
My kids are impervious to cold because they're well, kids. And I hate things on my arms and neck. I only own a couple long sleeved shirts and none with collars. You could seriously torture me by making me wear a turtleneck. Oh, just the thought of it makes me cringe and claw at my throat. And then there's the fact that I'm always hot. My internal thermostat is broken.
What does Joe say?[about my hair]
I don't think he's noticed.
I do have a SSO question, if it's not too late.I was at a mom's group where someone shared a story about a mother who spent an hour a day praying for her children. Her children knew to not interrupt her during her prayer time. The group's reaction to the story was mixed. Some felt, this showed her devotion to God and her children: what a wonderful expression of love, and what a great example she was setting by showing her children the importance of prayer. Others felt that she should get off her knees and tend to her children. God hears prayers while we change diapers and hold screaming babies just as well as when we sit in silence.I'm curious to know your take on it?
My take is - live and let live. I'd personally be on my knees because I was washing my floors while asking God to keep me from strangling my kids for tracking mud all over the house. But that's me. I don't think it's anyone's job to assume her children are neglected or that her way of doing things is wrong just because it's not their way. My 2 cents.
