  1. So, what you're saying is that it's unpatriotic to be apologetic for slavery, Jim Crow laws, Japanese internment, forcibly removing people from their homelands and giving them crappy land in return, and all the other atrocities and foibles of our nation? Interesting. I always thought that being patriotic meant trying to get our leaders to actually uphold our values.
  2. Not to put words into her mouth, but she probably meant fighting in front of the kids. My parents fought verbally and physically, and it was very stressful and horrible.
  3. I happen to know one of the moms on this site is a very talented artist, and she makes a needle felted Dobby that will melt your heart. I bought one from her and it is the most commented-upon item in my house. Most people can't get over how real he seems. I don't know if this is considered advertising, since I'm posting from someone else's site, but you have to see her Dobby. https://www.etsy.com/listing/177700853/custom-needle-felted-art-doll-24-inches?ref=shop_home_active_2
  4. He probably wouldn't. It took him to age 43 to find someone who was willing to put up with his nonsense. I'm not sure he could find someone else. :tongue_smilie:
  5. Hmm. I like being married okay to my particular husband, but I never really wanted to get married. I enjoyed living on my own. I was almost 33 when I got married, and I had a nice life. I've had to compromise on things I wouldn't have had to had I not married, such as where to live. If for some reason we were no longer married, I would almost definitely not get married again. So, even though he does things that drive me freaking nuts every once in a while, I love my husband, and I don't hate living with him, but marriage overall is something I could leave behind.
  6. I've embarrassed my family by speaking parseltongue to the snakes at the nature center.
  7. We took our son to a highly recommended child psychologist who specialized in autism spectrum disorder. She spent a couple hours with us in her office, then had dh and I come back separately to discuss her findings. He was then evaluated by physical and occupational therapists, and recommendations were made to us for things that would help him get along better. He now sees a talk therapist every other week and goes to social skills group on the opposite weeks. The social skills group does seem to be helping. He is now able to evaluate some of his own behaviors- usually after the fact, but
  8. I voted other, because I usually tip, but it has nothing to do with the cost of the room. I tip UNLESS the service has been bad.
  9. Most of the teen girls I know have their ears pierced, some in multiple places. Several of them also have lips and noses pierced.
  10. Ooo, I've always wanted to take some extended road trips/history lessons. I'd definitely prepare them a little for the places you know you will see. My boys have retained many more memories from places they've learned about in advance. But, if you don't do that, I think bringing along some living books, and maybe some journals/coloring pages for them to do while you're traveling would be a great idea.
  11. My preteens feel the need to argue with me about every single thing until I shut it down. So, grunting, shrugging, and saying "whatever" would be a welcome reprieve for me. :tongue_smilie:
  12. Not creepy or tacky. Lovely. I hope this helps Pal.
  13. :lurk5: We have these same issues. I think what zoobie said might be the case for us.
  14. While I'd LOVE to say that it's kale cut out in bunny shapes, it's actually peanut butter eggs.
