"I grew up in an area that was probably 50% Catholic, 40% Jewish (I was one of the rare Protestants). It was pretty common to have interfaith couples where I lived, due the neighborhoods being comprised of people from so many different parts of…"

"My nuchal fold/blood test (due to being advanced maternal age) gave results of a 1 in 50 chance of down syndrome. At my age it was supposed to be 1 in 311 chance. I was a little shocked when I heard that, but didn't really panic. I told no one…"

"I mixed it up a bit this year. Assistant teachers, tutor and Girl Scout leader got 3 wick candles from Bath and Body Works with winter/holiday themed scents. Between the sales and the coupons, I was able to get them for about $10 each. I also got…"

Jmarr replied to MR Mom's discussion The big WalMart lie
"You may be on to something there. It would make sense that they cut corners in many creative ways. Otherwise, how would the prices be so low? I guess you live and you learn. Now you know that paying more for "whole cashews" is not worth it…"

Jmarr replied to Shawn Spivey's discussion Mom: Note From Teacher Went Too Far
"At my son's old school they had a special, dressier uniform shirt they only wore on Mondays. He was young and didn't dress himself yet, so it was up to me to remember this. I messed this rule up once when he was in kindergarten and once in…"

Eye color and more

I saw an article about eye color pop up on my FB newsfeed and it led me to this: Anyone else have mutations? The eye mutations are big here in my family.My son's eyes were a strange color as an infant. They blue but practically clear...barely any pigment. A friend said they looked like marbles because the blue was like a ribbon inside a clear iris. Eventually the blue came in darker, but with some yellow mixed in where the clear spots were. They are blue and yellow at times, but they usually…See More

Jmarr replied to Shawn Spivey's discussion Cheerful? Depressed? The Season in Which You Were Born Might Hold The Key
"Very interesting! I don't know that I would plan a birth around it, but it certainly makes sense. If two people with a lot of depression (or lymphoma) in their families were to plan a pregnancy they might want to consider this study first."

I live clear in LW. Meeting up would probably be hard. I have a pattern for infant and size 1 cloth diapers and I'm gonna try that. I have a bunch of bigger ones. Thanks, Jennifer!
