How to Host a Progressive Dinner Party

Jul 20th 2009 12:57PM Deb - I'm with you. In theory it is supposed to make things easier but actually puts out 3 or 4 familys to clean their houses. I would never do this type of party. If folks want to save then have one big potluck at each house and you get 3 or 4 nights out. Spot on Deb. I would happily have a potluck with you but I live in Toronto. :)

Mississippi school district to hold cell phones for ransom

Oct 27th 2008 2:37PM I think it's totally ridiculous that teens NEED a cellphone at school. If I needed to get a hold of my Mom I would use the handy dandy payphone at the school. If my Mom really needed to het a hold of me she would leave a message with the school secretary and that was maybe once in my entire time at highschool.

Burkas banned from school pick up

Sep 11th 2008 10:49AM I think your article is a little misleading in that the woman pictured is not wearing a burka. It is a Hajib and one can clearly see her eyes and who she is. A true Burka covers the eyes and has small mesh holes for the woman to see through. I agree that a person picking up a child must be identifiable and therefore true burkas wouldn't work.

Dress code violation - Bald kid told to lose the hat

Sep 10th 2008 11:23AM Ummm Mary - did you read the part where he says the beany causes eczema and headaches? I can totally relate - stretchy hats give me headaches too. Can't a rule be bent for health reasons? It's not like all the other kids are going to revolt. In fact I think the other kids would be far more understanding than you.

Sarah Palin - Babies, lipstick, and politics

Sep 5th 2008 10:40AM I couldn't disagree more also. This woman is NOTHING like me. Just ask her who the president of Afghanistan is. Biden is going to rip her apart when it comes down to the real issues. I acknowledge she is a good speaker for a hockey mom but that doesn't make her a good president. Dear god the whole pitbull/lipstick joke was embarrassing to me as a woman and a mother.

As a Canadian I fear for all of North America if this woman comes a hair's breath away from being President.

Toddler bedtime battles

Aug 16th 2007 9:48AM I agree with the above poster. I also have the bath, three stories, snuggle and kisses and then goodnight. If anyone ever gets up they are led back to bed with no talking, one kiss and that's it.

My two are so wily that if I cave - then it becomes an option which they will try to use. Of course it's different is someone is sick. I really try to avoid all excuses - by having tissues available bedside, a small cup of water, soft music on etc.

It sounds kinda harsh but if I let one fall asleep in my bed then I'm in for weeks of hassle.

When Mom inadvertently goes night night

Aug 1st 2007 2:47PM I had this problem with my son too, but the longer you do it the harder this will be to change. I put a babygate on my sons door and totally childproofed the room. He would get up and wander around and then call out sometimes and I would just keep putting him back. It only took about a week - and yes a number of times I did find him sleeping on the floor with his blankie.

Funniest Mom in America winner announced

May 11th 2006 2:05PM What is her website address - I must read this woman's blog!

Caffeine and pregnancy: Seriously, just give the woman her drink!

May 5th 2006 11:27AM I'm currently nine months pregnant and have gone through the same thing. I didn't have caffeine in my first trimester but my doctor said that one cup of coffee a day is fine. Every time I go to a coffee shop I get the same thing - decaf right? Um no.
Pssst - I also had one glass of wine last week (with a full meal). Clearly I am going to hell in a handbasket!

My daughter's teacher is pregnant... I consider it a huge favour

May 4th 2006 2:24PM Even though this doesn't directly answer your question I would like to give you my point of view as a child adopted at birth.

I don't remember being told I was adopted because I always knew. I must have been 2-3 when my mom and dad started telling me that I didn't grow in my mother's tummy. They always stressed how badly they wanted a little girl and that the lady who grew me wasn't able to be a mommy to me so she made the brave decision to give me to someone who could. I always felt special, I always felt chosen.

My mother couldn't have any more children after my sister and I never felt any different in the amount or type of love I received. My mom used to tell me that I didn't grow under her heart but in it.
Just like Alex.
