    Pets!...

    We currently have: Keelta, a Shetland Sheepdog (one of those mini lassie dogs). We got her around when Emma was born for Morgan, but she ended up bonding more with Emma, so we usually refer to Keelta as Emma's dog. Shaman, another Shetland Sheepdog. Morgan got him again as a gift a couple...

    Well, there's a global food crisis in general?

    what do you teach your kids to call their private parts?...

    I never used "peepee" or any kind of baby talk with either of my kids. With Morgan it was a "penis", but the poor kid picked up a lot more vulgar terms from me back when I wasn't so careful with my mouth. Figures the kid is a total potty mouth now, right? lol With Emma we taught her all the...

    Yep! That's all familiar and very close by. So cool. I live near where your mom used to. :)

    Transgendered pregnancy...

    My two cents on that particular point: The surgery for a female getting male parts isn't as refined as the other way around. It's fairly easy to turn a boy into a girl, but there are a lot of complications when it comes to turning a girl into a boy. This person might not have "completed the...

    funny things your kids eat/drink...

    My daughter used to suck on lemons all the time. She claims she can't taste "sour", and that things like lemons and limes are just sweet to her. She never really ate anything too out of the ordinary. My son is a notoriously picky eater, especially now. He's vegan now, and hasn't eaten meat...

    What if your Child said "Im Gay"...

    My son and I have a close relationship, and when he came out to me he did it in the most casual way possible. He just said "Mom, I'm gay" right before leaving for school. As it's been pointed out, it was something I suspected anyway. I wasn't upset or shocked or angry. In fact, I wasn't really...

    What kind of bread do you buy?...

    We buy flax because it's the compromise between brown for Morgan and white for Emma. I couldn't care less, personally. I don't know what it is with my kids, but they never like the same things and they're both horrifically picky. We have three kinds of milk in the fridge because neither like the...

    Does your high school offer AP classes?...

    Right, I knew that. lol College here tends to be more technical or hands-on, but I don't know anybody that considers it inferior!

    A Rude Awakening!...

    Of <I>course</I> the alarm never malfunctions while you're awake. Where's the fun in that? Glad that it was a false alarm, though. :)

    I'm never eating again!...

    Lissa, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. You look damn fine! It was probably a combination of the top you wearing and a lack of social skills on the part of the cashier. Don't fret over it for one second. :)

    Does your high school offer AP classes?...

    Maybe this is a Canada thing? We have two streams in high school: applied and academic in grades 9 and 10, and those become college and university in 11 and 12. Courses marked "academic" are preparatory for courses marked "university", and "applied" are prep for "college". You need six...

    Finally!...

    I was trying to convince myself it was my internet, and not the board, and therefore I could fix it. I was pretty disappointed when I had to accept the truth. :D Good to be back!

    Who's your daddy, and what does he do?...

    My dad is 56. He's a mechanic and owns his own shop. We were pretty close growing up, but became suuuper close when I got pregnant with my son. He was always there for me, and it's thanks to him that I didn't become a drop-out teen mommy and instead finished high school and went to...

    &quot;Just lay off him, will ya?&quot; VENTING...

    You didn't miss anything. I never went into detail. Basically, what happened: Morgan moved in with this family friend who took advantage of him in every possible way. He used Morgan for sex, started him on drugs, and tore any self-esteem that Morgan had at that point to shreds. Morgan fell into...

    &quot;Just lay off him, will ya?&quot; VENTING...

    I honestly don't know. I've let Morgan down in so many ways, and it kills me that he's being hurt still. It was so easy to antagonize a family friend over what happened because there was distance. I wasn't there witnessing it, and when it all came to light there was such a mama bear instinct...
