Things have been kind of boring around here lately. Circumcision anyone?

My kids have eaten dirt and I did nothing about it. I just laughed my head off.

I let my kids outside without sunblock and a hat on occasions, and I do it deliberately.

I have bribed my children.

I have smacked my children (very rarely, but have still done it)

I have let my kids cry it out - probably because I'm a heavy sleeper and never heard them, so they had no choice. Baby monitor never woke me!!! I think that's why my kids slept so well.....

I have left my children in the car, and I do not feel guilty about it.

My kids had bottles until they were 3 and I didn't see the big deal.

I punish my children (when they deserve it) - apparently positive discipline is the only acceptable alternative these days.......well not in my house.

I don't sanitise my house with antibacterials every day so my kids won't get germs.....

I have doped my kids up to sleep (only once, but I've still done it).

My son is circumcised.

My 4 year old has watched all the Harry Potter movies except the Half Blood Prince - not even the boys have seen that one yet.

My 12 year old has a mobile phone of his own.

Finally, I will confess that I was a massive ABBA fan in the 70s.......





I think I'll stop there - there's plenty more, but seriously, how long a list do you need, LOL!!

Ok...I don't enjoy American Idol one bit at all. Well I enjoy the first week of episodes when people are trying out and we get to see the crazies who cannot sing attempt to get on, but after that I don't watch it. I think the show sucks and that it is boring and half the people who make to the top 20 are not that talented. I do love love love So You Think You Can Dance!

As far as Adam Lambert and his AMA performance and all the "controversy" over it. I enjoyed it and thought damn you go boy. I did not see the big deal with it. He said before hand in numerous interveiws that he was going to have a very sexy performance and he gave what he promised. Female performers have done the overt sexualized performances on music awards shows before.

Did anyone see the MTV music awards and Lady GaGa's performance. I thought that one was out there, but it got far less negative press. Her performanc ended with her hanging from the ceiling with blood dripping down her. That was far more uncomfortable for me to watch. I look at it this way. The performance was on late at night and my kids are in bed at that time so I am not worried about them watching it and second I have a channel changer so if don't like it then I can change the channel. The awards shows are all too damn boring anyways...his sexified performance, Lady Gaga's weird crap, and Rihanna's freaky futuristic performance actually made it far more entertaining for me and was the only reason I watched.

I hate him...and it's not because he's gay! I think he's dorky and boring...his antics are sooo predictable. Never liked him...not even when he was on idol...thought he was dumb and boring then too. Sorry Adam Fans.

LOl, I think he's an awful singer, I think people only liked him because he was different. The dude hit so many awful notes singing I was surprised he made it that far. Although, I actually didn't give two figs about him until the performance on the AMA's. I thought that was way out of line, not to mention the reaching up into the skirt of the one woman and making nasty hand gestures. I think it's fine to do what ever you want at your concerts but not on TV, at an awards show. I do have to say though, he seems genuinely apologetic.

Oh, and I like Adam Lambert too :) I watched some of that series of Idol on Foxtel and he was really good.

He was the runner up on American Idol this past season. He's an amazing singer but very edgy. He's made it loud and clear that he's doing his own thing and not sticking to the family friendly standard that American Idol sets but I respect that. I'll just monitor Madeline's viewing of him in the future! lol

Quoting Lindsay:

I love Adam Lambert and so does my 4 year old daughter! She always told me to vote for him....Although, after she stayed up late to watch his performance on the American Music Awards a few weeks ago, I did rethink her obsession with him as he grabbed the dancers faces and rubbed them into his dick.....


omg how gross!  ew.  me no likey!

my daughter started sleeping with us about 2 months ago, and we've decided that we like it and she can stay.

i try to MAKE michaela watch tv so that i can get a few things done, but she just won't pay attention to it.

when i went to mexico when i was pregnant i drank a couple of "special" coffees because i told myself that the fire they use "burns off the alcohol"

i do not enjoy breastfeeding. (her teeth are kind of sharp and i have fantasies about wearing a regular proper fitting bra-although i don't plan to wean)

i can not forgive obama for not signing the treaty to ban landmines. he is dead to me.

Just because someone has to do it or this won't be controversial... You are all wrong... terrible terrible human beings. How dare you!! CAS *child protective services for ya americans* should be called on you all! Of course I say this all while giggling my ass off over here! ♥

We use cio, it works

Dante LOVES macca's chips

I lived on coffee while pregnant

I ate the occaisional Vanilla slice while pregnant

We let the tv babysit Dante from time to time- put Elmo/Dora/Thomas/Ellen Degeneres on and he is happy

Dante is not circumsized, and if we have another boy-he won't be either

Oh and I believe in gay marriage (there's your "controversial comment Esther lol)

Well, I don't really have anything controversial to say, but this morning I walked in on my husband as he was (in his words) "pulling his wanker." You know they do it, you just really don't want to see it! It was quite a moment for the both of us...

My son is currently eating apple strawberry puff snacks off the floor... with the dog sitting and watching waiting for him to turn his back so she can sneak a couple.



I think parents are too uptight and worry that EVERYTHING is going to cause some sort of traumatic occurance that will scar their child for life and THAT, being uptight, is what ends up causing the traumatic occurance.



Go with the flow people, just go with the mother donkey'ing flow.

Worst mother ever here...I use McDonalds and pop (soda for you Americans) as bribes...and yes...Eve LOVED Twilight!

[deleted account]

I let my 22 month old eat peanut butter sandwiches, french fries and candy and he's even had pop/soda. He's addicted to Elmo and if I need a minute I'll throw in a movie and let him stare at it open-mouthed while I take a breather. He's circumcised but if I had it to do all over again, I wouldn't have it done.

I let Ethan eat fries from McDonalds at age 14 months, I asked for them without any salt but, I'm sure they're not that healthy still. I don't even eat at fast food places, haven't in years but, he's had the fries once and grilled chicken on 3 separate occasions. He's also circumcised and I'd do the next one too.

Evelyn..I did not think either movie was inappropriate either for a young kid, but when I told one parent that my 6 year old loves Twilight the look on the ladies face was like I had let my kid watch porn. I did not take Mya to the opening with me to see New Moon but I plan on going to see it again and take her with me.



I told the lady who gave me the bad mom look that there is no sex in Twilight or New Moon and very little kissing, but she thought it was highly inappropraite that my child likes it. Mya and me joke around because she thinks Jacob is cute so she says she is on Team Jacob and I tell her that I am on Team Edward.. and that is is so on..haha.

Joy, my 7 year old daughter loves Twilight, and while I didn't take her to see New Moon w/me on the first day it opened...I am planning on taking her in a couple weeks...there's really not much that's inappropriate in the movie but a little kissing and whatnot. Heck, my 8 year old niece and I playfight all the time about who is the REAL Mrs. Cullen...her or myself! LOLOL

Yeah, Rowan's at home right now with the dogs...we're letting them raise her. We threw down a sac of potato chips this morning and we'll return tonight after we go to the bar. She's 14 months, she can hack it.

Stop agreeing dangit! Sara is a monster! How dare you let your child cry. She was probably only up in the first place because she had all this caffeine in her blood. And you have doomed Rowan for a life of misery where she will now only eat fried foods. You awful woman you!

I drank caffeine, ate fried foods, downed chocolate milk like it was water, and stopped exercising after my 7 month when I was pregnant.

I let my kids cry it out sometimes and other times I have such a damn headache that I put them in the bed with me.

I give my kids a piece of candy sometimes to calm them down or I bribe them with the promise of a piece of candy to get them to do what I need them to do.

Sometimes I get so tired and sick of dealing with my kids that I just leave them downstairs with a movie on while I go upstairs hide in my room and read a book. I tell them if it is not an emergency then do not yell for me or come and find me... mommy is on break for the next hour so try not to burn down the house.

My kids occassionaly have a Happy Meal from McDonalds on the nights I just don't have time to cook or even slap together a grill cheese sandwich and they love McDonalds fries.

And my six year old daughter has seen Twilight..she loved it and wants me to take her to see New Moon...and I just might do it.

Quoting Sara:

I think Crying it out works.

I had caffeine when pregnant.

I think that teenagers have no business having babies.

I have fed my daugther McDonald's French Fries, and she liked them!



Sara, you'd be hard-pressed to find an OB or L&D nurse who didn't drink caffeine while pregnant...how the hell else could we stay up all night?  I had to give up coffee, but only because it made me hurl (along with about everything else) but I lived on regular Coke...it was the only thing that consistently settled my stomach, and gave me the will to get through the night!



 



Oh, and Molly loves fries too ;)

anybody who doesn't breastfeed, doesn't love their baby
anybody who uses cio doesn't love their baby
anybody who doesn't support Obama is a racist
anybody who doesn't support gay marriage is homophobic
America sucks
The bible is fiction
