  1. Alrighty, so I do have one son already as y'all know. He's going to be 2 in April, and now I'm gonnna have another baby in September...We had planned it this way, but now I'm kinda wondering...can I handle it? I mean seriously, I'm trying to fix issues with baby #1 that are hold overs from when we lived with my DH's parents....so I'm kinda worried I may have a melt down after #2 gets here in September. So advice please...I need it...
  2. Apologies then that I took your intended statement wrong. I just took the implication (which in looking back likely wasn't intended) that my children would take and may not contribute in return in some way as an insult to them. I do know that the older ones probably won't, due to the fact that the mentality of 'it's a never ending supply' seems to have become common place....which sucks really. So if we may I'd like it if we could make like the whole mess didn't happen? Anyway, you did? Did it work out fairly well then? -To Tristan9480: I know it can be since babies are all different, some can be fussier then others but for the most part I was hoping for some ideas to try out so as to maybe handle the stress of being tired and short tempered.
  3. Having two or maybe three children isn't really "Shooting kids out like a human pez" I do care about the future of my children, and yours too. Yes, I would like to give my husband two sons, If I can't I'm stopping at 3 children. Adoption is a wonderful thought, but not everyone can afford it and I'm sorry I'm one of those people who can't. Now then, I'm really only asking for perhaps a little advice on how to handle the terrible twos and having a new born. I don't need a lecture on over population and natural resource depletion when the fact is that a lot of that could be taken care of by the older generations giving two shits, and actually trying to change the way WE handle the limited supplies and finding alternate sources to replace our fuels. So then, please don't insult my child/ren any more and lets agree to play nice.
  4. Positive, yeah you're right. Our living situation? We're renting a place right (in a tailor park) now but still looking for a place to buy. As far as getting fixed, I do intend to. However I did tell my DH that he would have at least two boys outta me before hand...and since I have twins running strong on both sides there is a VERY good likely hood that we may well have a two-fer (my mother is a twin). I think that's where alot of the anxiety comes from.
  5. lol yeah, that's is awesome!
  6. I'm not sure of the actual snow fall count but on top of what we already had we can now lose our dog in the snow around the driveway. >.> Poor Cerberus....
  7. Yeah, it's snowing here and I guess we're in for around 12 inches by the days end. Something I didn't overly miss while I lived in Arizona. (Back in Michigan now)
  8. Oh man....I'm so afraid they're gonna FUBAR that... crap, now I wanna watch the original..... >.<;
  9. It does look pretty good from what I seen in that 2nd trailer. Altho' I have to say as long as they have the character personalities the same I don't think it will matter how much they botched the actual story events.
  10. No, my hubby and me didn't do anything fro V-day....he had to sleep due to work that night plus we're saving for a house. The only thing that happened was that I did a no-no the day before and ordered Chinese to surprise him for dinner....so we did $32 worth of splurging
  11. I thought "Shaun of the Dead" sucked.....but "Zombieland" I thought was funny
  12. I don't see why it would hurt, after all look at most of the cartoons on TV that other kids watch. Family Guy, American Dad and so on, they're chok full of adult content. So why should Inuyasha hurt? It isn't as full of the stuff as the others mentioned.
  13. So my FIL has some Chinese art that he wants to reaserch to find out if it's authentic and yadda, yadda. My question is if anyone knows of some free site that he can use to look up any information about these two arts...or if anyone here may be a collecter or something and can help me out. I can get & post pics if needed.
  14. Alright so, my husband, self and our son moved back up to our home-state after our son was about 3 mos old. Now we're living with his parents, they had set up some of the upstairs and one downstairs room fur us to use. Sort of our places of Zen, and peace. However now, his mom keeps moving our stuff around in those areas, and deciding what my son does and doesn't need out, and that it suddenly looks too much like we're living in the house...but that isn't the end of it, my son is a cuddler. He wants to be snuggled and held when it's time to take a nap, so he will fuss until he gets what he wants. So she says to let him cry and he'll learn to sleep on his own. Okay, no biggy. So when I do, or when I'm punishing him (putting him in time out because he's throwing a shit-fit due to not getting his way) she flies in like super grammy snd starts to cuddle and snuggle him because she can't stand the fussing.... So that leaves me brooding because I don't wanna cause an argument...or seem ungrateful that they opened the house to us... I feel like I'm caught between a rock and a hard place and totally clue less as to how to handle everything....
  15. Nah, won't happen....she's keen on a couple drinks fairly often. It's her "Happy pill" and apparently her Holiday Spirit.... (No she isn't an alchie)
  16. I kinda like the tazer idea... >.> Yeah I need to speek up, but right now in particular shes been REALY combative...so I don't think best time. Lordy I am so hoping that we get a place of our own soon...
  17. Yeah, I do have to...but problem is I know I always come off wrong and I really don't need or want to start a fight...
  18. Yeah I do what I can to be accomidating (taking my son into another room when he's fussing too much and what-have-you), but as far as his crying himself to sleep she's the one saying he needs to do it so he won't need to be held/snuggled or whatever. Then she turns around and get's an attitude and suddenly can't handle it when I try to do that, then looks at me like I get a gold star in fail as a parent...
  19. My son is only 8 mos old, and while she does give me and hubby some good advice...she doesn't always practice what she preaches. An example is letting him cry himself out...but she blaims it on menapause and being unable to handle almost everything under the sun. My hubby tells me to ignore her, that shes always been like that, but it's hard to ignore when she wants to move my son's highchair into the game room (one of the little Zen places that was set up for us) saying that it doesn't need to be out for one reason or another.
  20. I first saw this as a Manga preview in my lil sister Shonen Jump magazine. Since then I've watched the first season and have now started on the second. I personally find it to be hillarious, as well as my brother and new husband. Tho' I have to admit the Manga seems to be a little better. Anyway Has anyone else seen it? What are your opinions?
  21. Hey everyone, I have a question for anyone with wee-ones....mine is now 6mos and has cut two teeth and is working on more. Short of going completely mad does anyone have advice on how to ease the pain for him? My son doesn't readily take passifires (I've tried putting some in the freezer for him when his teeth started to hurt), and really doesn't like it when I stick my finger in his mouth to apply baby origel... all ideas are more then welcome.
  22. ^^ Well anyway, his fits seem to be getting worse...it's like seperation issues, teething and a need to be held 24/7 merged into some twisted rendition of the terrible twos or something o.0 and I think I need a vacation
  23. lmao and yet you talk to me
  24. /nod Yeah, we're in the process of getting health coverage for the three of us through the state atm. It'll prolly be next month before we hear anything tho. Cafe Mom? I'll have to look into it, but as stupid as it sounds I'm more comfortable asking stupid questions to faceless ppl I've interacted with before then new ones
