Natural...so you figured you would just keep the bangs until they came back in huh? I am feeling like that with clothes these days.

It is my anniversary and my kids (well the two who are still home sniff sniff) insisted on watching my wedding video. Our cheeks hurt from laughing so hard at the 80's hair styles, clothing and way we danced. So glad I saved my dress in case one of my girls wanted to wear it. O tells me it is hideous.

No freakin way! You never got married?! Still with the kids' dad? That is so funny cuz my husband and I never talked marriage he just went out and bought a ring. The night he was going to propose I was going on and on about why do people get married...so stupid..I don't need a piece of paper...just live together. Needless to say he proposed 2 months later. Still wasn't sure but figured I could always change my mind. Also didn't want children. 23 years and three children later.....

Nope never and yep, Mr. Kat is the kids father.

The funniest thing is when when someone goes on about people not being married and having kids. I sit and listen and then say, I'm not married and I have children. They usually say (between the coughs and splutters), oh but that's different! Really???

What is LMAO? I know, I know, sheltered life, blah, blah, blah...

DustyKat, I think it's awesome that you are with the kids father. Some people flip psychologically once they are married and end up getting divorced. So what was the point of marriage? Just make sure you both have good wills so that when one of you kicks the bucket, the other won't be left high and dry. You got no judgment from me.

I'm with you crohnsinct, keep the clothes until they come back in. Just like the bangs. Who's got time or money to waist. Hee, hee!

I'm with you all. I love catching folks eaten' their own words. It's loads of fun. Yep, my son rode the short bus in preschool. He went to a special ed center. So glad they have services for the little ones. Now he's in college and his "short bus" is his fathers old Honda CRV.

I drive the long bus (Honda Odyssey)

Gotta take a short break and cut hubby's hair and possibly son's hair too. Be back in a few...

Oh god! Start running Tess!!! Football is football is football, the purists game, life and death, the only true sport! It's SOCCER!

@sascot...Do you follow the Scottish premier league? Does Andrew? I don't but Matt does, I don't know that he follows any particular team, and my Dad is Scottish, he is a Hearts man through and through.

Dusty I agree - football is FOOTBALL (yes, soccer), very very important in Scotland! We do follow the Scottish League, our team - Falkirk - is in the first division (one division down from the premier league). Don't think Hearts is liked by anyone in our family, .
What's with all this pampering people? It's all I can do to get a shower for more than 3 mins before someone is shouting for me!!
Crohnsinct - way to stick to your guns! Married and 3 kids later
I had a dream last night that I had 3 kids and was pregnant with my 4th . Can't tell you how relieved I was when I woke up to just 2 kids

What a dream!!!

I have a friend who had two small children, wanted a third but hubby wasn't so sure... so, no big deal, two was good... however, as she had had two babies and was now a busy, busy mom of two small ones, the job of 'taking care of business' was left to hubby... a surprise pregnancy soon followed, with TWINS! (But, honestly, there is ALWAYS something going on at their home!! Always lots of fun!! )

I will never forget something her son said to me, he was too young to get the meaning and was just repeating his dad... He was approx. 6 years old, younger sister 2 and twin girls just born, I asked him how he felt about having 3 sisters, he shrugged and said "I dunno but my dad said when they're older, him and I get to go away for a week every month."

Well, I picked up the printer and a sandwich from her favorite sandwich shop oh yes and three or four grocery bags of snacks (no comments...remember I am Italian!!!). M&M's no Hersheys. Anyway, we went to her room (shocked she had us seen in public), we installed her printer, she took her sandwich and she kissed us good bye. Oh yeah and she gave me a book to be returned to the bookstore and said I could feel free to go myself while she sat in her room and ate her sandwich. Wham Bam Thank-you mam! I am sure Dusty has some clever hooker reference for my quick visit.

So if she needed mommy time it seems and hour and 15 was all she needed. I did pick up and bring ink but darn Clash that was a good idea to save it for another trip.

Ah yes and she told me about her "friend" from h.s....she got written up her first night there for alcohol!!! I was freaked. Don't get me wrong. Not freaked about the alcohol as much as I am freaked that she is going to school with kids sooooo stupid that they get caught their first night there! Also perturbed she is ruining the reputation for our high school. O wants to go to that school. Guess G will have to prove the family rep for now.

I type as I drink my big glass o wine!

At least they get written up for alcohol! When Emily was looking at various universities, we looked at Uni of Toronto (largest, most respected, most prestigious, blah, blah, blah in Toronto), we look at one of their residences - very nice, small apartment style (each apt with 4-5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, living area with couches), 3 levels of security - into 'private' areas, again into apt and again into each bedroom , co-ed floors but single sex apts and they matched up roommates by interest, not age. BUT, I don't consider myself prudish, not even close BUT each resident was allowed to have 2-3 sleepover guests, either sex. So, in theory, Emily would be 18, could be rooming with a 22 year old who has a boyfriend who's 25 and Em could be waking up to a living room with two to three 25 year old men! I found this really bizarre and was very uncomfortable with it.

She chose to go to another university for other reasons but, out of curiosity, do you guys find this strange or is this normal??

Tess, reading that does kinda freak me out as a parent. However, as far as I remember at my university they had blocks of flats with about 5 bedrooms sharing one kitchen/lounge and bathroom. There were no adults manning the doors, the flats were co-ed and I don't think there was a limit on who you could bring back. I of course was still staying at home with my mom and just drove into uni - think I missed some partying!!!

You are making me blush crohnsinct!

Some of the residences here are same sex, usually the ones with a religious affiliation, outside of that they are all co-ed. Sarah lived in an 8 bedroom, 4 bathroom apartment and the mix was 5 guys and 3 girls, all different ages. There was one guy in another apartment that was was about 30 and they called him Dad!

@Naturelover...Well stop perving on my knees!

All of the universities J looked at had coed residences, most suites were separated but that is it. There were overnight guest rules for some of them but for the most part there wasn't. When we first toured I have to admit I was freaked but J more so by the space of the older dorms closer to the uni and the distance the newer suite dorms were from main campus so she decided on a state school for the first two years where you weren't required to live in a dorm as a freshman. But honestly, her neighbors ended up being guys and I swear if it wasn't for them cooking she would've starved and they were constantly checking on her and her roomies, changing the oil in her car, meeting her at work when she got off so she wouldn't have to walk to her car alone. Wish I could move them right on through college with her!!!

Well, maybe I am more prudish than I thought! When I was younger, I shared a place with friends, male and female, but I think what threw me was that she wouldn't know who she'd be waking up to... and that they could be so much older. Guess it's time I woke up and smelled the coffee!

Then there's Stephen ... went out with a friend this past weekend and they both tend to look older than 18... after a club, they'd gone to eat something and a couple of women started to talk to them, asked them how old they were and S and his friend said 21. Women started oohing and aahhing that they looked 'older' but, 21 was 'okay' (women were 25 and 27!). They all ended up eating together, etc. S said the women started reminiscing about their proms, so S and his friend did as well, only difference being, the women were going back almost 10 years, S and friend, 2 months! Women ended up giving the boys their numbers! S and his friend then admitted how old/young they really were and women snatched back their numbers! (Gotta wonder what he DOESN'T tell me! )

I think they both need to go out of town!!! Ignorance would be bliss!!!

Tesscorm I do know the feeling!! In return for the cooking, oil changing and getting her safely to her car from work J frequently goes downtown to pick them up after the bars close!! She says they make their plans knowing if they get into a tight they can call her and she will get out of bed and go pick 'em up and bring them home. I wouldn't want to be them though because J is the grouchiest little thing when you wake her up, probably in their bar state they don't even notice though!!

That's a pretty good deal!! Don't get me wrong, I think co-ed sharing is great, probably better than a bunch of girls only, like I said, it was just the 'stranger' and age thing that got me. Then again, I'm sure a big part was the whole transition with her moving out, etc. I think she ended up with the best of both worlds though... ended up staying home but one of her best friends is in residence downtown - most weekends, she stays with her friend...
