Re: It's been so long..

Welcome back, Tonnie!

I'm sorry about your poor cats, but I'm so happy to hear you are flexing your work schedule. And homeschooling on top of that? That's a lot!

Re: Moooom - arg

If my mom said something to me about my weight, I'd be "Arrggghhh." But if she said anything to my children, I'd tell her to keep her opinion to herself.

Kids have enough pressure to look...

Re: Parents sue to evict 30 yr old son

I don't disagree with you at all. IMO, he's clearly got some challenges. Is he dangerous? Not yet. And because of that, the parents can't do anything wrt his mental health. They don't have any...

Re: Parents sue to evict 30 yr old son

Re: Friend's taking me to a ballroom party.

You can't get out. You MUST go. There's no way to tell your friend no. Go. Meet a foreign bride at the social, get married, and live happily ever after doing what everyone else tells you because...

Re: Encouraging Parents to Put Final Wishes in Writing

When the kids are young adults, the conversation is more like, "We have wills. They are there with other important documents just in case...." Usually right before I get on an airplane.

Re: Mother-in-law keeps insulting my race.

You cannot.

Does your relationship really depend on her opinion of Americans?

Re: Fixed marriage?

If you are in the United States, just say no. Your parents can't force you to marry and arranged marriages without consent of the spouses are not valid. If you are under 18, it's also considered...

Re: toad lilies

You can break up the clay and help lighten it by adding other organic material, sand, and peat. That's a lot of work.

Re: Are newborn baby hiccups normal?

Congratulations! That first baby brings lots of new worries.

Hiccups are normal for babies, especially if they haven't burped. You can try to burp the baby, or give him a pacifier. They...

Re: indoor herbs

I bring the herbs that are potted inside in the fall, but I've never grown them inside on purpose. Grow lights seem like a great idea, but I don't know anything about them.

Re: Transitioning to "adult" children!

Both boys want work space to work from home. They both need a LOT of space! Right now, the house seems too small. Before I know it, though, it will be too large.
