Time For a Coffee Break! / Re: Take care of the family

I say, if you try doing things for the sake of looking good and not for happiness, you'd be in a bad time.  Being a SAHM by choice because it makes you happy, then continue onward.

Time For a Coffee Break! / Re: Before we go

Quite frankly, I have learned from this board:

Many posters here are super sensitive and seem to obsess over very minor things/incidents/slights....I think many of the commentators here would be much happier if they lightened up quite a bit.


Or, sometimes people are just bringing an etiquette question to pick apart and hash over simply because they come here a lot and want to contribute. Or this is their hobby, so they want to talk about it, even if they aren't all that upset about it.

I've learned I would like to have TootsNYC on retainer.  ;D Her advice is so well thought out and almost always makes me say "Why didn't I think of that?!" And even on the rare occassion I don't agree, I like hearing her perspective.

Going to miss this board!

Aww, thanks!

I am going to try out the new boards and see which one lasts. Maybe we'll run into one another!

Neighbor,
I have you asked you multiple times to please refrain from leaving fecal matter at the shared entrance to our homes.  If this issue does not resolve quickly, I will be forced to escalate my concern to management.

Or just contact them now.

I'm not sure if you were just copy/pasting the list as a whole, or if you really think Emerson, Harper, and Paisley are extremely unusual names?

Naming children (particularly girls) after their mother's maiden name or another family surname has been quite a common practice in my area for generations. And it's certainly been extended in the last 20-30 years to include using surnames as first names, even without a personal connection.

I've known Bo's all my life, including some well-known athletes. I'm personally acquainted with at least 2 adult Bo's in my social circle  now, just off the top of my head. "Beau" used to be a more common spelling, but the shorter version is about evenly matched in men under 50, and far more common the younger they get.

Then again, I also know a man in his 80's whose given name is Peaches. So perhaps we just have a history around here of appreciating lateral thinking.
