  1. Americans are crazy. :leaving:
  2. Ah, I'm sorry Scarlett, I guess it's all in the perspective. As a disinterested observer who's been away from these boards for a while I really enjoyed some of the witticisms flying around. I do understand how infuriating and frustrating a lot of it must have been for you though.
  3. Not having been here in a while I was really quite enjoying your thread, I'd completely forgotten how very hilarious and entertaining you all are when you're having a spat. But, as my mother always said, 'Least said, soonest mended'. I do try to follow that advice, but sometimes I have to meditate like crazy to suppress that next snarky comment :wacko: .
  4. Yes, exhausted, and often downright ill. I'm at that 'certain age' when everything's going haywire and my cycle is three weeks long, so I'm pretty useless a lot of the time these days. Are you getting enough iron?
  5. It sounds as though there are no real disadvantages to sending her, other than the sacrifice of your 'vision' of having everyone together, and I can fully sympathise with your feelings on that. I find myself in a similar situation, only in my case my 6 yo is begging to go to school because he wants friends. I find it hard to reconcile my dream with his needs; ultimately he is most important. I think that if there's one thing my children have taught me it's to always try to remain flexible and adaptable, which can be tough when you've invested time and money in planning a year's worth of study :glare: . :grouphug: I know you'll make the best decision for your daughter.
  6. I think it's very appealing to believe in the supernatural, to believe that there's something so mysterious, so unknowable, so uncontrollable. I have known strange, unexplainable things happen, but so often my darling, ever-rational DH can explain them away to me as ordinary, everyday quirks. He can't, however, explain the number of times I've related my dreams to him of someone leaving a job, or moving house, or dying, or divorcing, and then discovering a matter of days or a couple of weeks later that my dream has become fact; and no, there's usually no advance warning that such things might happen. So whatever my reservations about the paranormal, about ghosties and ghoulies and things that go bump in the night, I'm absolutely certain that there are things that, so far, hard science can't explain.
  7. "Nagging and repeating it over and over" has produced fairly good results here - that and always modelling kindness, consideration and good manners ourselves :001_smile:.
  8. My little two often go into the men's room on their own (together), but I prefer them to come into the ladies with me. Funnily enough only this weekend my eldest told me that by the law in the UK boys are allowed to go into the ladies up until they're 14 yo; how true that is I don't know, but he seemed pretty sure of it :) .
  9. :grouphug: As you've already been advised, she's a lousy friend, I'm so sorry you've been so badly hurt. Let it go, move on, and let the wounds heal. You deserve so much better.

    Not tacky. Alternative maybe. I like to keep an open mind on how people live their lives.
  11. This may have been posted before, but DH left this on my desk this morning: "Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos no raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe." And I've spent so many hours teaching reading and spelling ... DH is severely dyslexic - when I first saw this I thought it was one of his less impressive e-mails - they're quite often nearly this bad :D .
  12. I'm very sad to hear this. Lots of love to Kay and her family.
  13. ... when you have a couple of cutsie little baby boys, and decide you want a couple more, that one day they'll start to grow into stinky teenagers. Just now all my four (aged 5 to 13) and three of their friends (aged 12 to 13) are playing the XBox in my sitting room; I just went in for something, and ... phew the pong! Quite overwhelming. And it's just going to get worse isn't it ... ?
  14. My two little ones have been into Harry Potter in a big way this week.
