@Daisy Razor Lordy, I hear you. I'm pregnant right now. The next six months (18 years?) are friggin Drynuary, and there's no quitting.
I totally bought this. The only thing I was skeptical about was the rent. You'd still be paying upwards of a grand in Park Slope for a place with no bathroom. I know because I pay twice that in Park Slope for a bathroom so small you have to sit sideways on the toilet.
Here's a question (that a 5 year old would ask). If a swan ate all the same things as a Flamingo, would it too turn pinky-orange? You guys are bird experts obviously, that's why I'm asking here.
I only went to sleep away camp once as a kid, and called my mom to get me the first night. She told me to give it a day, and I'm still glad she didn't get me. I have lots of memories of being at camp that summer, great and otherwise. I do agree that one should always immediately rescue their child when mean girls are afoot though. My mom had a sixth sense about that that I still admire her for.
@olivebee Ditto. Actually my wedding is coming up but my friends talked me out of that dress and now that its $800 im kinda like grrrrrrr. Though I do love the dress I ended up with, the print is so awesome on that one.
I think that "back then" people had much more lax attitudes about kids in cars. My mom talks about riding like 7 kids to the back of a car in the 50s. You'd get arrested for that now. Maybe this had something to do with the doors spontaneously opening? I mean, why was the technology in place to make a CAR but not a lock that would hold a car door shut?
If it makes you (or anyone) feel any better, my boyfriend fell out of his mom's moving car not once, but twice as a small child. The second time she didn't notice right away and had to go back for him. When pressed as to how this could happen, she said "Car doors didn't work as well in the 70s." I suspect it had more to do with her being 18 years old at the time, but long story short, he's fine.
Wallabies! Ohhhh, the things I could keep in their soft pouches.
@parallel-lines I was once terrorized by a Turkey as well! My dad had to throw snow balls at it until it ran away, we couldn't believe what was happening. Those things are a public menace.
@BusyBrie What kind of gel mani did you get? People around here seem to be generalizing about gel manicures (you monsters!!) and hating on them all, but there are different kinds to try. In my experience, Axxium kinda sucks and gets peely really fast and effs up your nails while Shellac is a beautiful gift from god that comes of pretty easily and doesn't mess up your nails so long as you patiently and carefully remove it, preferably while watching Teen Mom 2.
