1.  What was the last thing you did for your kid?

2.  What things do you like doing with your kids? 

3.  What memories stand out about your own mom...  Good or bad?

4.  How many kids do you have?  Is it a # you planned for/wanted? 

5.  Do you have a pet(s)?

That was a joke?  OK.  Why the insistence then?  Even after my response that we don't do nicknames in the shortened sense but that he has other nicknames.  Why did it have to go any further than that?

Littlemiss...I said "I" would call it that. I never said that she HAD to name it that. I was joking how macintosh (as in computer) is abbreviated to Mac. lol

Maybe you should go back and read your posts, saying that everyone shortens things over and over and talking about how there is not a Macintosh but only an imac or mac is not saying Gee, i'd have just named that dang cat "Mac".  Joking...no. 

My 13 yo tries to say she is joking, after she says sarcastic things--yeah well, she doesn't do it well.  And above on my whole rant about this post, my 13 yo also is unhappy when I (very quickly lately) have had ENOUGH of the ridiculous degenerating arugment and leave the room.  She's always unhappy about that...she says "but you never want to discuss anything!"  Well duh, who would?

I think she was looking for a response like--yes I was wrong, I should have named my cat Mac.

But isn't it ok Jam, to call it One Direction?  Just because many people shorten it to 1D?  I still refer to it as One Direction the few times in my life that it comes up.

And I will admit to my brain not working all that great, because when there was discussion last week, what little I read of it, I was thinking of One Republic.  I like that band better that One Direction.

I'll come right out and say this is a diverse and fascinating group of women. We've got Catholics, Protestants, atheists, evangelicals, Republicans, Democrats, Independents, hippie peaceniks and military spouses, PhDs and some who never rent to college, women in their 60s and women in their 20s: Yankees, Rebels, SAHMs, WOHMS, straights, gays, bisexuals....coffee drinkers, tea drinkers, wine drinkers, dog people, cat people, people who dislike animals.....and we can all disagree and yet all get along and be supportive when ot counts, with the exception of three people. One of whom wants to fight about a cat's name.
