Wow. She really is something else isn't she? I wonder how her husband/lawyer feels about this new violation and her inability to just leave you alone. If I were him I would be saying "See ya!" Sigh....Keep fighting Gina! If I happen across extra cash I will gladly toss it to the cause, but right now we are in a bit of a struggle (long story) and need all our extra money to catch back up.

I like the name change from Push Present to Birth Present. I have no clue why by I just don't like the phrase Push Present. I know, I am weird ;) Your necklace turned out lovely <3

It sounds like OBs should be offended by this show. So many are NOT like this. Of course there are a bunch who are, but it isn't fair to stereo-type them all.

Oh Gina. Thanks for the giggle :) I refuse to read anything Quakers (hoping Margar02 sees this) has to say. She really is an obsessive freak. Keep ignoring her and deleting links of her posts people send you because she isn't worth even a thought.

Frankly, I thought it was just incredibly stupid and the acting was awful. This commercial didn't make me want to buy the product. It doesn't make me want to boycott or anything over the top, but it also didn't appeal to me. Not to mention I wouldn't want my 10 year old (or even the younger ones) to see this because he is starting to ask questions. I have no issue answering them completely and honestly, but who wants to tell a 10 year old that lady wants 2 men at once.So glad we don't have any signal on our TV and instead stick with DVDs....

I taught at a (general) Christian Preschool and a Lutheran one. I am NOT Lutheran. If I can teach at one even though I am not one then you can send your kid to one ;) We NEVER graded kids on "Jesus Time" We were more concerned with them being socially and mentally ready for kindergarten...oh, and having fun of course.

@FeiLanLim Wouldn't Jesus want us to embrace everyone in love no matter what? I do not think that this father is loving his daughter above Jesus, but rather showing her the love of Christ. He is pushing aside judgement and condemnation and just simply loving her. Jesus was a liberal (I bet you will disagree but it is so true). He rocked the boat. He made people uncomfortable by bringing to light the fact that their actions and beliefs went against the nature of God. The nature of God is love. One does not have to agree with a "lifestyle" in order to still love and accept that person. I am so sad for you and the fact that you seem to not realize any of this.I am so happy for this father and the fact that he has seen that he was not showing Jesus' love to his daughter when he hurt her so terribly. I am happy they have been able to start new and start to heal. in my opinion, love always wins....

Oh and I am not looking for a pat on the back. I just wanted to let you know I get how you feel. I really do

Just wanted to let you know I do not think you sound ungrateful when you say the support makes you feel worse. I am the same way. Totally demented. Anyway, I am also the same way that doing a good deed makes me feel better. Joey on Friends once said "There is no unselfish good deed." I do not think this is meant as a negative thing, just a reality that it is ok to do good so that you feel good because no matter what you are helping someone. Does that make sense? Yesterday I received word I was getting a free baby carrier as payment for a job. I am really excited but I have 2 great carriers. I could sell one and make some money, but I am feeling down lately so I decided to send one to a friend who is having a hard time financially, does not have a carrier, and is pregnant with her second baby. I told her I was sending it to her and made her cry from joy....I am feeling pretty damn good. Anyway, I will be sending out a card this week because I want Liz to be OK and I want you to feel better. Never met either of you, but knowing I made someone happy makes me feel good.
@bidwellmegan Ugh! That is not OK at all! I grew up in MA and then lives in upstate NY before moving to MO. It really is a culture shock! The thinking here is so different and very close-minded. I am not used to it. I actually had someone decide not to be friends with me because I have BILs and friends who are gay. WTheck is that all about? There loss IMO. I just do not understand that thinking at all.

This sucks :/ I hate that you have to deal with this. It seems so unfair. Sending positive energy/thoughts your way. I hope things get better and I am glad you found a Dr who listened.
@bidwellmegan I read this and started grumbling. I hate that you are not getting treated fairly because you are a same-sex couple. Just wanted to let you know there are those of us out here who vote in hopes you will get the equality you deserve. I hope things get better for you
Since my baby is no longer teething I am not going to enter, but I want to add a note about the teething necklaces. My daughter has a congenital hip deformity that causes her pain. She was unable to sleep at night and was on a painkiller regimen. I hated that she was so little and on so many meds every day. I discovered teething necklaces and wondered if they would help her since I read they have been used for centuries for things such as arthritis. Anyway, I bought her a necklace. I never told her what we were hoping would happen, but sure enough her pain decreased and she has been off painkillers for 2 years now. She will still sometimes need Motrin on busy days with lots of walking, but this necklace is amazing. I highly recommend Baltic Amber teething necklaces to everyone (and not just for teething!)

My biggest with for 2012 is that my son's neurological disorder will finally be recognized in the DSM V (due out in 2013). He has Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and numerous other learning disabilities but is often refused services through the schools and our health insurance because SPD is not recognized as a separate disorder in the DSM. He is a fighter and I am so proud of him. Oh, I can imagine the joy on his face if this wish came true and the doors to better care were opened! If recognized not only would he be helped but many, many, many other people would also finally have access to proper care.

My favorite childhood tradition was going to Christmas Eve Mass, coming home to watch "Santa" drive down our street (he went up and down every street in our town with a police escort!), and then going inside so my mom could read The Legend of the Christmas Spiders and The Night Before Christmas as we drank Egg Nog (non alcoholic of course). As an adult I still go to Christmas Eve Mass with my children and I read the same stories, but my kids drink homemade Hot Chocolate and I drink Chai Tea. Sadly Santa doesn't drive through the city I now live in but he still drives through my hometown!
