  1. Wait. Wait. She told this woman that her husband must be a *pedophile* because he drives a white van? :blink: A woman who speaks this way to "a friend" could not move away fast enough.
  2. Oh my goodness. I'm with you. Within about four seconds I want to roll up the baby's sleeve and squeeze the chubby forearms. That's just who I am. But I've learned to play it cool, too. I probably make babies nervous without even knowing it. *makes note to learn self-control before grandchildren arrive*
  3. You're right - nouns do just sort of sit there. I wish you lived next door to me. I'm a scary religious person but I love talking about parts of speech. ;)
  4. TJ's is better, better, better, BETTER!!!! It is buttery and delightful. If I had some right now, I'd slather it with butter and sugar and cinnamon and roll it up and back it and cut it into beensy cinnamon rolls. That's exactly what I'd do!
  5. I love him. :001_wub: He should train other children and dispatch them to fast food play places all over the country.
  6. Oh, I do use her! Because I'm visually inept so I just can't remember - visually - where I put things, and I'm so disorganized, mostly, that not everything has its own place. She's also my map-reading navigator when driving. And as for fixing things.....I'm just as mechanically inept as I am visually! She takes after dh - he's a professional architectural model-builder, a visual-spatial guy all the way.
  7. Yes, yes, yes. Please go above the teacher. A student like this should be placed on probation or have to leave the campus altogether.
  8. Oh my goodness. My middle dd is like this - she can find anything, sort of just by thinking about it. No matter what you've lost, she'll say, "Oh, I just saw that," and she'll go and get it. She can also fix/open/close/adjust any mechanical thing, long after I have completely given up on it. I will have struggled and struggled with it, and she'll take it, look at it for a minute, and *boop!* she's fixed it.
  9. My parents voted in garages for as long as I remember. DH and I voted in the garage of two wonderful ladies who lived down the street from us. One year they gave us one of the cardboard voting booths when they were done with it and our two daughters made it into a time machine that they played with for years. The two ladies must have moved away, because now we vote in local schools.
  10. Hmmmm... Since you like Willow, what about another tree name: Linden. My favorite boy names are Sullivan, Thatcher and Silas. I'm not sure if any of those sound beautiful, though.
  11. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the name Margot, spelled that way especially. But if you're concerned about pronounciation, maybe you could spell it Margo? Your other kids have wonderful names and Margo goes along nicely!
  12. Silas? I like Elijah and Eli, but maybe having an Ellie and and Eli would be too confusing, sound-wise. Asa? Eben? I love your kids names, too. I just love names in general. What could be better on a Saturday morning than a WTM baby name thread? ETA: I can't believe I left out my 2nd favorite boy name, Thatcher. That would be nice with Emmett and Hyrum. They could all wear overalls and be super-adorable.
  13. Believe it or not, I have a friend named Sara who married a man whose last name is Sera. So now she's Sara Ann Sera.
  14. I was once talking with a labor and delivery nurse about names she hears in the course of her job. She said the worst ones were twin boys named Thor and Slayer Gomez. :lol::lol::lol::lol:
  15. DH nixed Frances for our dd3, who is Charlotte. I love the name Frances so much that I used it for one of Charlotte's dolls. Bwa ha! I actually have a whole list of names I love that dh wasn't fond of for our kids, which is one reason I love WTM baby names threads. Maybe someone else's kid will get the name mine would have had. :nopity::D I do love our girls' names, though, and, to be fair, he agreed immediately to Piper, which was my first choice for dd2.
  16. So far we haven't called our Charlotte any of the obvious nicknames. But there's a woman who comes to our library storytime whose daughter is named "Charlie Grace." I asked her if "Charlie" was short for "Charlotte" (because despite its apparent popularity, I've not met another young Charlotte) and she looked at me like I was nuts! "No, it's Charlie."
  17. :iagree: If you want to be a writer, you have to let your work be read. That's all there is to it.
  18. What do you think of Josephine for the middle name? And since you like Autumn, do you also like Audrey? Audrey Josephine Goodwin. Yes. That's it! :D
  19. Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Joleeeeeeeene..... Darn it. Now it's in my head, too. :tongue_smilie: Harper Jo is great, though.
  20. Oooh, here's another J name I love - Jessamyn. Charlotte Jessamyn. Harper Jessamyn. Liberty Jessamyn. Autumn Jessamyn....mmmmm, not so much. Because then you'd have Autumn Jessamyn Goodwin and that's too many "n" sounds. I might be a teensy bit obsessed with names. Maybe.:D
  21. Hey, I was going to say Charlotte! ;) We have a Charlotte. And Charlotte JoAnne is very pretty. Of your list, I love Charlotte (of course), Harper and Autumn. And I haven't read the thread, but I hope someone besides me has mentioned Jane as a possible middle name. I love the name Jane! Harper Jane? Awwww, now I'm jealous! Three girls just aren't enough. Big congratulations! ETA: Now that I've read the thread, I see the poster above me suggested Jane. I like Janey, too.
  22. My oldest dd used Vocabu-Lit for a couple of years in elementary school and we really liked it. Lots of variety and really excellent words.
  23. Forget gentle! I want to bite 'em! What a doll he is! I'm that weird lady who's obsessed with baby wrists and forearms. You'll forgive me, right? :tongue_smilie:
