  • Forum Post: Vacation Recommendations?

    Posted 08/15/2012 10:06:36 EDT

    If you do choose the Storyland area, I think your best bet is the Marriott Residence Inn.  Nordic Village/Luxury Mountain Getaways in Jackson is nice, too.  They have a nightly bonfire, with entertain more »

    Posted 08/09/2012 12:16:34 EDT

    Exactly, Kar! I know I would also be afraid to go to the movies or church if I heard the recent stories as a child. I couldn't even help but feel slightly uncomfortable at the movies last Saturday.  M more »

    Winter, my son is the exact same age as yours.  At our school, they teach touch typing in 4th grade, and he typed several assignments for school this past year in 5th grade.  They actually even set ea more »

    I'm sure they are out there, but I can't imagine that most parents, or "mothers" who limit what their children watch are doing it to get attention or to make the world think they are a certain kind of more »

    Well said, Kar.   Not letting kids watch something before they are developmentally ready to process it is not keeping them "so shielded".  Yes, they do need to learn the difference between reality and more »

    Posted 08/02/2012 04:32:11 EDT

    I am very careful about what my kids watch.  I agree that Toy Story 3 has mean people, mean language (Lotso), and the whole incinerator thing.  My kids were 8 and 10 when it came out, and I remember m more »

    I didn't read the other comments, but to answer your question, Kar, they'd likely stop eventually, but one of my sons was still going strong at 4 years old, and I don't know if/when he'd have stopped more »

  • Forum Post: What do your kids think you do at work?

    Posted 04/26/2012 08:00:04 EDT

    We used to tell my son that Daddy works to make money.  Out of the blue one night at bedtime when he was 4 years old he said, "So when Daddy makes the money, does he use a machine?"  He thought he lit more »

    We LOVE Sesame Place.  My kids are turning 10 and 12 this year. We went when my first son was 22 months and I was 8 months pregnant, then for the next 8 years after that(believe it or not)! lol  They more »

  • Forum Post: What do you think of Hilary Rosen's comment about Ann Romney?

    Posted 04/13/2012 02:00:58 EDT

    Relax there, Big Boy.  I didn't say they were exactly alike, nor that Michelle Obama has never had a job; I'm not very familiar with either of their backgrounds. My comment was in response to all of t more »

  • Forum Post: What do you think of Hilary Rosen's comment about Ann Romney?

    Posted 04/13/2012 01:29:16 EDT

    So many of you talk all about Ann Romney not being able to identify with most women because she had the luxurious "choice" to stay home with her children and not worry about finances, as if Mrs. Obama more »

  • Forum Post: What do you think of Hilary Rosen's comment about Ann Romney?

    Posted 04/13/2012 10:51:53 EDT

    Supposedly the main point of her statement was to imply that because Ann didn't "work", she can't relate to most women.  First of all, what past or potential first lady has ever "struggled" as an adul more »

    I agree, Kar!  I JUST watched the same video and this was the next thing I came across.  Yuck. Edited to add:  I didn't realize you had started a thread about the food chewing earlier.  I just saw it more »

    That is disgusting.  There is too much bacteria in the mouth, which is why you should also never share toothbrushes.  I don't know what's more gross - that, or the time(s) I saw a mother pick up her c more »

    My 9 year old really wants these Kapla blocks. We saw them in a store recently and they were pretty cool.  He said he thought $100 was a lot for them so he'd just get them from Santa, since he can mak more »
