"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…"
"When I was giving birth to one of my children, the doctors said my blood test showed I didn't have anti-bodies to rubella. They gave me the vaccine before I left the hospital.
My doctor wants me to get a tetnus booster but I am not rushing in…"
"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…"
"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…"
"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…"
"I heard the apology on the news. A simple "I was wrong and I'm sorry" would have been good. She had to pray about it to figure out she was wrong to pick on them?!
I was a little sad that the girls didn't look more engaged…"
"I liked doing it earlier too. With the kids having all that time off, it just makes sense (if you are not traveling for Thanksgiving).
My sister said she puts a water proof mattress pad under her tree as a precaution. She has real wood floors. We…"
"We got a real tree this year for the first time. I love the way it smells! We put it up Sat/Sun and finished the rest of our decorating as well. This is really early for us! We usually procrastinate until the weekend before Christmas. One year we…"
"I loved this. Everything about this. I am a total genetic geek, this was completely up my alley. Thank you for sharing it.
The cleft chin add was interesting. I did consider it genetic when my daughter was born with one. She…"
"If the mom truly couldn't get all the knots out without shaving it, I can understand, but I still don't get the shaming part. I think a better thing to do would be to help her buy a hat or wig, etc. The trauma of having to shave off the…"
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
"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 can't remember the last time my daughter asked for ketchup. My husband/son won't eat it. I could probably get a way with not buying it, except there is a brisket recipe I make a few times a year that calls for ketchup. I guess I could…"
