Does anyone else do really stupid things? Please tell me someone has done something recently, like left their ATM card in the ATM machine or drove off with a drink on top of their car. I haven't done…Continue

Lakeside Music Room

I can't remember where I heard about this place, but I want to say it was here! Lakeside Music Room holds concerts in someone's home. I want to say it is mostly folk and Celtic music. I have never…Continue

"Thank you for sharing! "
Jmarr replied to Shawn Spivey's discussion Is it normal for my preschooler to call me by my first name?
"For me, it would feel weird if my older child did this. I can understand where a very young child might be confused and call a parent by their name sometimes though. The only person I knew who did this was a woman who didn't really raise her…"
Jmarr replied to Doug Freeman's discussion Free puppies from Craigslist or other ads.
"That's a great point. Even some dogs being sold for cash (newspaper, bogus websites, side of the road, etc) are very sick, without showing signs yet.  I was at the vet the other day and was told about a bad strain of kennel cough that is…"
Jmarr replied to Tabby's discussion Thinking of how times have changed
"I know, right? My parents were in a bowling league and used to take me sometimes. My parents' friends had a daughter my age and she would tag along too. We would sit at the bar while they bowled and drink Shirley Temples! We would play the…"

Jmarr replied to Shawn Spivey's discussion HPV test better than Pap for assessing cervical cancer risk: study
"Yes I would rather get blood drawn. I have had some doctors go easier than others with paps...but they're never comfortable! I hate blood tests too though! At least with blood they can test for other stuff while they're at it (thyroid,…"

Jmarr replied to Better Bladders's discussion Young girls.. When are we making the transition to wear training bras?
"I never needed one as a teen or young adult, but wore one for comfort (or so you couldn't see nipples through thin shirts). My daughter seems to have a different body type, but at 7, I am not seeing signs of needing a bra yet. I suspect she…"

Jmarr replied to Shawn Spivey's discussion How Much Vernix Did Your Baby Have?
"I don't recall. For my first birth, I was REALLY out of it. For my second, not so much. My second was preemie and I don't remember her having a "film", but perhaps they wiped her down and wrapped her before they presented her to…"

Jmarr replied to Michelle Miller's discussion I need some feedback in reference to getting an IUD
"Funny you brought this up! I just went to a doctor today to discuss options for period problems. He mentioned that many people have regular, very light periods (or no periods at all) after about six months on Mirena, but have some spotting before…"

Jmarr replied to Shawn Spivey's discussion Consumer Reports Advises Against Using Spray Sunscreen On Kids While FDA Investigates
"I tried to go 100% paraben free when my son was born in 2002. It was so hard to find sunblock without these chemicals. Even at Whole Foods. Eventually, some decent natural sunblocks came out, but they were always creams, not sprays. Once I had a…"

Jmarr replied to Shawn Spivey's discussion Best Friends For Little Girls are Boys?
"Uugggghh yes. My daughter has had her heart broken by her "best" friend. Luckily, they don't hang out that much any more. She couldn't understand why it the girl was so mean to her. She was devastated.  My daughter is one of…"

Jmarr replied to Shawn Spivey's discussion What do healthy moms have in common the world over? Babies of the same size, study says
"My son was kind of small. He was 6 lbs 11 oz and 18.5 inches. My daughter came at barely 32 weeks gestation. They were expecting her to be about 3 lbs but she was 3lbs 15 oz. I thought that was pretty big, considering how early she came out. I think…"

Jmarr replied to Shawn Spivey's discussion Study: Babies Born in Fall Are Better Athletes

Jmarr replied to Shawn Spivey's discussion Warrant: Ga. man returned to car with son inside
"I was surprised they were so quick to charge this dad. Usually they do a full investigation first. The cops were hinting that they had some evidence of foul play. If not, I really feel for these parents. I know many will disagree, but I can totally…"

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!
