just want to add my 2 cents... i guess i'm old fashioned, but i firmly believe that a mothers place is with her children, not at work. Kids aren't going to remember the material things, but they will remember having their mom there for them when they were needed. Sorry but I am totally against the day care thing unless its a very last resort. Mothers, do with less and go back to work when your kids are grown.

I haven't read the other responses yet, but I firmly believe children do remember the material things.

I very vividly remember always being told no, that something was too expensive. And that has affected who I became as an adult.

Moreover, since my salary pays the mortgage, utilities, insurance and lunches for school, I promise you my kids would rememeber the lack of material things, cause they'd be homesless, hungry and hot if I didn't work.

LOL means "laughing out loud."

ROFLOL means "I'm rolling on the floor laughing out loud.

ROFPIPLOL means "I'm rolling on the floor peeing in my pants laughing out loud.

ROFLMBO means "I'm rolling on the floor laughing my butt off" (My 11 y/o is fond of this one).

I see Lois has beaten me to your question, and she did a better job of answering it than I could! This one is new to me: "ROFPIPLOL" Hehehe ... Who says the internet isn't educational? ;-)

Okay so what does nt or n/t mean? I've been on lots of message boards, but I've never seen it anywhere but here. Can anyone explain, it's driving me crazy! Thanks.

It means no text.

It is used when the entire message is opening title line and there is not message inside. It prevents wasting time opening up threads for no reason.

Autumn star, its really not up to you to decide whether women work outside the home or not. A lot of women work and its called "survival". It has nothing to do with ego, materialism, or greed. Besides, what about Dads working outside the home? Nobody ever complains about that.
