Re: RANT: "Are both your kids from the same father?" rude qu

"Is his father something else?" "Yeah,he sure is!!!" wink wink wink That would shock them! :eek: I only have 1 little guy so don't get this question. I admit that I do sometimes wonder if the woman I run into at the grocery store are also single moms (like me) or if their kids ha...

Re: Similarly Minded Folk?

I think I have some things in common with all of you and would love to meet for a playdate sometime. We moved here about a year ago and have had a very hard time meeting new people here. My son is 2 years old and really does love to play with others and just stand back and watch the big kids play!

Re: I really need to find

The local health unit or even walk in clinic should have a list of doctors who are accepting new patients.

Re: Where to Take 6yo for Blood Test

Oh no. I was going to suggest them b/c they have been gentle with my son. What about Life Labs on Burnside? Both my son and I have had blood work there before. They have always been very gentle and kind with us. They can't offer the numbing spray but if you have an Emla patch you can use that for yo...

Re: question about renting and references

Maybe just explain that you have been a home owner for 20 years. Can you show that you have always paid your mortgage or other bills on time? A personal reference maybe?

Re: Rant - my DD

I was just going to suggest taking all of her clothes away for a short time. Handing her one outfit at a time.

Re: What do you do with all your books?

I love those Little Free Libraries! There are 2 on Obed street and one on Dysart and one on Orillia. I usually get all my books from those bins or from people in my complex who leave them near the mail boxes. I have a whole stack to read right now. All in great shape and so far one is a great read. ...

Re: Home Alone at 8 1/2 for 2 hours slaps Mom with Ministry

I know I was left alone often when I was that age. I once even left with my newborn sister while my mother ran to the store! I think it depends on the child though. When the time comes for me to leave my son home alone, we will go over the safety rules, what he is and is not allowed to do and then d...

Re: Hospital to replace doctors with Parents doing Internet

Oh! I thought it was real. LOL I do try and research on-line and then take my "findings" to the doctor and discuss it with her. I feel like we're partners when it comes to my health and my sons health.

For those who store breast milk: It's Freezer Stash Friday!

If you have a freezer full of breast milk the first Friday of every month is a great time to go through it and rotate it. Any extra milk your baby won't drink before it expires? Consider donating to a baby in need. Come visit Eats on Feets Vancouver Island https://www.facebook.com/eatsonfeetsvancouv...

Can not post pictures

Hello! I have read and followed the instruction in the how to post a picture thread, but am not having any luck.

I'm using photo bucket to host my images and I use a Mac. I've tried a few different ways to include my picture within a post. What am I doing wrong?
