Re: May 5, 6, 7 Chat

Going out of town for my baby sister's graduation. She was born two weeks after I graduated high school. So hard to believe she will be 21 in June I will not have internet access until I get back Sunday afternoon. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Do you guys have something against my beloved Packers?!?! Lol!

Jill- good luck, hope everything's ok!

I finally started feeling better about halfway through the afternoon. Luke came home early because the job wasn't ready for him and having him around really cheered me up. I'm going to bed in a few minutes and hoping to get a nice long night of sleep. Since Naima only slept a few hours last night I'm thinking she should sleep well tonight. No way it can happen two nights in a row, right?

Super excited for the weekend. Sat is National Scrapbook Day and so there's a huge online crop with tons of prizes and fun starting tomorrow afternoon and going until Sunday night. I know it sounds stupid but it's a blast and I'm really looking forward to it. The kids are even going to Grampa's all day Sat so I have the house to myself!

Re: May 5, 6, 7 Chat

I just don't get it. Do people really have nothing better to do than promote the greatness of their own personal choice? ugh. I love ds.com but like anywhere, there are extremes. a post about a special blanket for baby becomes/is really about the superiority of babywearing and the inferiority of items in which the baby is not in mommy's arms 24/7and therefore the non-emotional connection of parents today. (ok, I am definitely overtired and feeling a little annoyed...) It gets a little old...the clumping together of "this group" vs. "that group."
(I am NOT against babywearing...this was just the topic at hand....and no I do NOT think all babywearing mama's think that way)

ie...I breastfeed my two kids, but I refuse to make someone feel bad who does not/could not/did not. and I refuse to be made to feel bad over not nursing as long as others. (sorry, I should add that this is NOT about anyone here...I have so enjoyed the variety of views and openness without condemnation that everyone has shared)

ie...I have a baby swing and I use the baby swing. that baby swing is not taking my place as the parent...I do not just sit my child there and leave them there for hours on end.

the item is not the problem. attitudes and reasons are the real issue. even "right things" done with the wrong attitude or motive makes the "right thing" practically useless.

sorry, I'm probably not making a lot of sense right now, but a few websites, facebook pages, threads I've noticed the last couple days have just gone from silly to ridiculous to seriously irritating. I don't know, it just seems to me that people spend a lot of time focusing on thing of little lasting value.

ok, sorry, rant over...love you ladies!

~haha, just to add to the mayhem...I was lucky enough to recieve a sling during a mom-to-be breastfeeding event hosted by the local WIC when pregnant with Sydney. I was so excited and happy. When the lady was showing me how to prperly use it, I asked her if there were any special things I needed to know in order to wash it. She kinda did a double take, "oh, you'll never wash it, your baby will be in there all the time." I remember my hubby and I passing a look at each other. I'm pretty sure I'll want to wash it when kiddo spews spit-up all over it or when we come back from a dirty play ground or something.

- I love blanket statements like that, makes you wonder if the people saying them actually have brains! What happens when you get a baby like Nigel who detested the sling for weeks and then would only be in it when he was scrunched up like a ball looking out.

I totally agree with you Naomi, there are so many "controversial" topics out there, that in my opinion aren't really worth arguing so much over, most of the time, there are MANY right ways to do something. And every child, every mother, every parent and every family is different and what works for one kid will NOT work for another.

I agree that our group has been so open and supportive to one another. I think we have a lot of different parenting styles and ways we do things, but I have never felt like it's an issue. I this place and you gals!

Re: May 5, 6, 7 Chat

I made my first thing specifically for Mary, a little outfit, I'll take pics and share tomorrow in the craft thread. Best part - it was all from my stash, totaling at a whopping $0.00 dollars spent (the fabric was even free from the beginning, I got it from buying other needed items at a local quilt shop, they were giving away free fat-quarters).

I just hope it fits, so hard to sew for a newbie when I can hardly remember how small they are. And this little girl better be near the same size as her brothers... aka - SMALL, cause this little dress seriously looks like it could fit a doll .

Okay, night all

I totally know what you are saying! It is so irritating! I love our DDC, though, because we have talked about those things and we have managed to not insult each other. There have been so many threads lately that just go beyond ridiculous.

Amy got it right! No Oregon Ducks here! DH and I both are OSU grads.

Melissa, I so have to see this teeny, tiny outfit! I have two sweaters sitting here, begging me to turn them into soakers/longies. I just need energy and motivation to do it

As for the woman who told you not to worry about washing the sling, uh, did she have a real, live, peeing, pooping, puking baby in it? I used wool when DD was a baby and her fitteds still leaked all over my carrier and *gasp* I had to wash it! Duh.
