Find me on most of the social spaces as Mrs. Flinger
In an effort to launch something in a very short timeframe, after three months of coding in off hours for stints of a few minutes at a time, I used a framework to get *something* out. This is not code I would use for a client. Ever.
In fact, if you could see my face right now, you'd realize this is a little more than painful.
But, as sometimes has to happen with personal projects, the non-paying personal site takes a backseat to quality and gets dressed in handmedown code. Thanks to VMcore for the free ride here.
I loved this post! That sound had me rolling! Makes me want to take my laptop to a coffeehouse with free wireless, too. But, without my kids.
Dude, that place sounded like heaven on earth to me (free wireless + coffe + playroom???? where do you FIND such luxuries in one place?) ... until you brought up the whole getting-stuff-done crap.
Playrooms/groups/dates kinda suck for that.
Dude, I think you mean CONDEMN, not condone. It kind of matters here.
Anyways. Go LB, GO GO GO.
Just the four we have make enough noise and mess in our house that I had hubby’s vagina sewn shut…I mean, oops, penis. And, yes, I’m hoping the fact that my four godless little heathen offspring are horrific enough for our too-pretty-for-her-own-good teenage regular babysitter to keep her legs together for a LONG time.
And here’s a little sippy cup raised to LB cleaning that other kid’s clock.
Hey wow, when did Anna go up to your state? Or do you have a mic hidden in my home?
Heehee… That’s why when we meet up with new mommies and kids, I always ask the mom if her kid can defend themselves. I *so* don’t mind if ds1 gets a toy taken away from him that he stole from someone else in the first place. How else is he going to learn? (he certainly doesn’t listen to me when I want him to, so there you go)
I want my kids to play well with others, but I totally want them to be able to defend themselves if needed! Especially in the cases that the parents don’t care about what their kid is doing. (And are no where in sight, such as with our next door neighbor’s kids. Good grief!) It’s better they learn now to stand up for themselves or else they’ll be pushovers and get bullied later on in life.
Also-I had to laugh, because it IS a good idea in theory!! Then when you add kids and preoccupied mothers, well, then it sort of breaks down!
I’ve pretty much gotten to the point, after having two kids play in the mcdick’s playzone occasionally, where all manner of fighting is acceptable so long as no one gets bloody or their eye poked out. Back in the day I would get so resentful when an older kid swiped something from Lily but these kids, they figure it out. They learn about our cat eat dog world and they accommodate. more power to them for learning it early!
I hope she kicked his ass!
GO LB go! And it’s so damn annoying when the other kid’s mom is chatting away, obvlivious to their child’s actions. That drives me nuts. But yeah. I think a little fight it out over toys is very normal and probably healthy as long as no blood is shed.
So, did you beat up the bully-kid or what? We need the rest of the story please.
Ha - sad to admit that it would be my child who would take a toy away (she is QUEEN at daycare, doesn’t help it’s promoted *just a little* there). And She would also be the kid that if you took her toy away she would take you down (the girl can tackle - from watching all those football practices!).
Lord help the first guy she dates.
That noise. I knew better, but I did it anyway. God in heaven, it’s terrible.
I don’t like daycares myself having had my son in one for a short time. Luckily, before I quit my job I found a home daycare that was a really good place for him.
Sounds like you went to a place that was too good to be true.
I worked in day care too one summer during college. a 6 year old tried to bash my face in with a broomstick TWICE! I would never put my kids in day care either, but methinks my future MIL would be more then thrilled to be our sitter if we needed one and we get along great so that would work for me. My mom couldnt stand having my older brother in day care- that lasted all of, I think, a couple of weeks.
Probably would be better if the place sold alcoholic drinks for frazzled mommies!
Hope LB was able to “assert” herself a little!
what a Reminder
Confused… do you mean ‘condone’ or ‘condemn’? Or condom, or consarn-it… or some other word?
Oh good lord, I mean condemn. You know, not condom, not condarn, but condemn. Of course I’ve read that several times and never noticed.
Isn’t it funny how you can be totally against violence, and then someone hurts your kid? That’s when the animal instincts come out and you find yourself yelling “kick his ass!” to your 2 year old.
