Whose birthday is next in your home and how do you plan to celebrate/do you celebrate it

Have you ever pulled an all nighter

What's the best advice you've gotten about parenting and who did it come from

That cruise is getting closer and closer, Lol. What a memory in the making..

LOTS of work for me planning for 9 people but I am sure it will be all worth it. I am doing all of the dirty work, they all just get to go on board and enjoy lololol.

.  Yes, it was/is.  I guess it's a good thing my friend passed before she realized how much I hate teachers.  @@

I still think you hate them.  @@  Glad to know you were inspired by one.

.  I know you do; I just hope my kids' godfather, a respected retired math teacher and basketball coach who worked for Muriel for thirty years never catches on.  He'll be wondering why I chose him as the overseer of our children's' spiritual development since, you know, I hate teachers.

Whose birthday is next in your home and how do you plan to celebrate/do you celebrate it

Of those who live in our actual home, mine is next.  It's not til October so I have no idea what will or will not be done for it.  In our extended family, my mother's is next, in June.  Don't know what we'll do for her but we'll definitely do something.  After the past couple years, we're kind of amazed that she's even still with us.  

Have you ever pulled an all nighter

Definitely, though I hope that those days (and nights!) are over.  

What's the best advice you've gotten about parenting and who did it come from

Not to freak out too much over how things will happen in the future, because each stage prepares us for the next. THinking about it, though, I couldn't begin to tell you who or where that came from.LOL

DD3s.  It is the day before Father's Day so will probably be joint birthday/Father's Day celebration.  Do not know yet how it will be celebrated whatever they decide.

Only once, back in the early 80s when I was in the Air Force I spent the night up because I was supposed to be off the next day.  Then they had a recall so I had to report to work.

Will have to think on the one.

Um, no, it's not his "gotcha" day; that's his birthday.  I adopted him in August when he was 10 weeks old.

We never knew exactly when Red's birthday was. We adopted him in early August and was told he was about 10.5  months old so we made Labor Day his birthday

DD2's birthday is June 19th, Fathers day was a day after her birth that year she was born.
