  1. ((((hugs)))) to Rosie.
  2. He has Aspergers. He seems very set that we not re-arrange or paint or change anything at all! But, his room is the only one big enough for the bed. So I feel silly giving it away. I do have someone to give it to, but yeah. would be a shame to do that and have him need it back in a year or two.
  3. Probably because he just does not like change. I am sure that is it.
  4. We have a queen bed that we are trying to figure out what to do with. I was going to move it in to 13 yr old's room, but he said no. He is already 5'7, maybe 5'8. I can easily give it away. But I am afraid that in a year, he will be so tall that he will regret that. I put a post on our town board offering it to free to anyone who wants it. Right away, I got tons of responses. I am fine with giving it away, but I do not want to be in a position of having to replace it in a year or so. 13 yr old currently uses a twin sized bed.
  5. Not a famous person..but..I found my old French teacher on FB. She had white hair when she was my older sister's teacher. She was my teacher 30 yrs ago. I figured she must be 90 now, if still alive. Nope. Turns out, she is in her 70's, travels extensively, works out at a gym, has a rotator cup injury. Made me feel like I better get to exercising! She looks the same today as I remember her 30 yrs ago!
  6. Did her favorites turn out poorly? My mom spoiled my younger sister. I did not live with my mother most of my childhood. But even now, as an adult, she is about 40, my sister still lives off my mother. But she has an income, but just has to have expensive clothes and expensive SUV and massages and pedicures and manicures and so on. She is seriously in debt. I know her credit is shot. She got very excited about a year ago when someone issues her a credit with a small amount of credit on it. She turned around and used it right away and then tossed it, like usual. She tried to steal from my daughter recently. I am 100% certain she will not help our mother when our mother needs it. In fact, while I do not speak to her now, in the past, I have gotten calls from my little sister demanding I go do stuff for them, like give them money or run errands for them. If I go on vacation, she would call and get angry and say I have an obligation to stay with them for the holiday, even though when we are here, they want nothing to do with us. My little sister is extremely spoiled and playing favorites did not help her at all. I am just curious if others have seen that. My mother didn't want to raise me when I was 5 yrs old, but I have a 40 yr old sister still living off her and is a disaster. Favoritism hurts everyone.
  7. I think if a parent simply boots a child out at 18, for no reason other than no legal obligation, then that parent should not be expecting any help later from the child as they age. I personally will NOT be helping my own parents. I only lived with them for some of my childhood years and those years were miserable. But if my grandparents needed help (grandpa has died, and grandma doesn't need help, even though I would love to help) I would happily help. Or my old foster parents. The parent child relationship is two way. The parent gets the first crack at setting the tone, the child gets the final word. I actually feel bad when adult children were treated horribly growing up and were on their own, then they feel obligated to their aging parents. On the same token, when parents are good parents, then the adult kids should come around. I think they usually do come around. I guess I do not know anyone who was a decent parent whose adult children refuse to help. I am sure it happens, but I don't think it is that common.
  8. There actually are no regulations on private schools. And public schools are only loosely regulated. The state will not step in to investigate any complaints or otherwise against any school. Everything is run at district level in this state. If you don't believe me, call TEA and ask.
  9. It does not take 5 minutes to go in to a store, find what she needs, and check out and come back out. Plus, it is not ok to leave your small child in a car, or anywhere else in public alone. So yes, I would call her a bad mother. And she is just like those people who claim it was "just for a second." It is never for a second. And she did not leave her child for just 5 minutes. And even if it were just for 5 minutes, still not ok. And the part that really makes her a bad mother, is that after all the educating authorities have tried to do with her to teach her how dangerous her behavior was, she prefers to sit back and encourage her child to be upset, all in her agenda to paint everyone else as the bad people, and her as the one who is fine and right. And her excuses...she HAD to bring him or he would throw a tantrum. Then she just could not take him in to the store, or he would throw a tantrum and it would just be too much work. whine whine whine. If she cannot handle a tantrum, then she shouldn't have children. What will she do when her child is 13 and throws a tantrum that he just wants to stay out all night, and maybe even drink alcohol. Just give it to him? She is in serious need of some parenting skills. Everybody makes mistakes. But hers is huge and she prefers to let her child feel pain for it rather than mothering-up and own up to her mistake.
  10. It used to be that babies were in the front seat in the car seat. And they used to only rear face for a few months. And there were no cell phones, so we visited with our little ones while driving now. Now...their seats are in the back from day one. We talk on the cell phone while driving, so we are not thinking about our child or talking to our child. We are very distracted drivers now. So, people don't see their babies anymore in the car seats. These seats are HUGE now. They are made to be rear facing to 35 pounds or more. You cannot see even a thread of your child from the front. And it is very disconnected. You cannot talk or interact with your child while driving. And now, with cell phones, so many are on the phones instead, distracted. So, they get involved in the conversation on the phone. Or maybe just with whatever else. And they don't see or hear the child, and the child is in the way back, rear facing, unseeable. Then they forget. Another thing is, some kids are left on purpose. And as long as the child does not get hurt, the police and CPS don't care. I just found a newborn baby and a preschooler in a car alone in the Target parking lot. I called the police. They had been there for some time. When the mom came out, the police just told her not to do it, but then told me there was no law against it!! (I thought there was, but they insist there is not). I had taken pictures of the incident so I called CPS. CPS just sent me a letter and told me that they closed the case and decided not to take any action against the mother. I wonder how many of these cases of children left in the car are actually on purpose. Or if the family has done it on purpose in the past so they forgot on a day where it was too hot. In the case where I called CPS, that woman was angry at the police and yelling at them and telling them that they had no business bothering her. And recently, I read an article from some self righteous woman admitting to purposefully leaving her child in a car, 4 yr old, and her only regrets were getting caught. She tries to claim her child was harmed by those who caught her rather than her own actions. This is an example of a bad mother.
  11. My French teacher from high school, in the 80's. She had white hair back then. I added her to my FB page. She works out and even had a rotator cuff injury recently. LOL...I thought she was dead and it seems she is alive and well and kicking better than me!
  12. Mine..same using Foersters and loving it!!!
