I was driving to my in-laws tonight when I saw this billboard. The sign seems to change alot, and the message usually on this particular billboard is usually anti-abortion or a hotline # for unwed mothers. The topics may have something to do with the church/daycare across the street, but I'm only guessing. When I saw this sign I wanted to say WTF! but had my 4 and 3 year olds in the backseat. Apparently, the fact that the divorce rate for christians is higher than atheists means nothing to… Continue
My 4 year old has been into rhyming now for about a year, and my 3 year old is finally starting to catch on. It's wonderful, but it's gotten to the point where we can only rhyme in private. One night, before bedtime, my oldest was saying 'smack butt' (who knows where she heard it), and it turned into 'fat butt', then into 'fack butt' and finally into 'fuck butt'. I stiffled a laugh and told her it sounded like a word that wasn't child apprioprate, and that was the end of that. But then… Continue

Here's an article that was pointed out to me. One that frustrates me because of the religious people, but at the same time makes me feel good because of the way the school and parents handled the situation. Way to go!

I took my 4 year old to pre-school today and on the way home I heard a song by Pearl Jam on the radio. I don't know the name but it says, "don't call me daughter, not fit to...".

My parents divorced when I was 9 years old, and they hated each other (my father was an asshole who had also cheated on my mother). But my mother… Continue
I've tried talking my husband into moving, I want to go far away and then we'll have to leave family and friends behind..blah..blah..blah.
There's not even a decent preschool I can send our kids to where they aren't judged. I don't want to go to jail for smacking another mom, but I don't know how much more I can take and I still have 14 years of this!
OK, let me start from the beginning now that I cooled… Continue
Last fall I found a forum called Tuscarawas County Online which is where I live, so I was pretty excited to talk to people from my own area. It was pretty cool, a mix of libs and cons that gave good agruments and tastfully agreed to disagree at the end of the day.
But then some new members joined and it became a right-wing nut job site for them to make fun of liberals. They bashed us and anyone who wasn't overly sarcastic and a conservative (which I am neither). They did alot of… Continue
