This is what my 9 y/o dd Stephanie said to me this morning when I had to ask her 2 times what she wanted to drink...then had to bring her OJ as she still had not answered...she was doing her fav thing...READING !!! She made the comment as her only explaination...apology??? for not answering me...now, my mom would have yelled at her for ignoring her....me, I understand!!!! lol, I was a bookworm too....could NOT get enough of them!!! (books, not worms!!!)lol...where I differ from my dd, is that I can do 2,3 and sometimes up to 5 things at once...so I became very skilled at answering my mom and not missing a beat with where I was in my book....had to, or be severly punished for not answering...hmmmmm, does this mean that I'm not teaching her how to do 2 things at once....or am I thinking too much into this...lol

Have a great weekend everyone....I'm still reading bd posts only and only posting one a day for me...in my 5 min break I allow myself to be here from my hectic, too busy existance...still plan on being able to play on the bd next week....I hope!!!

bye for now

That's too cute Laura!! And I bet it was said with the attitude of "like duh mom!"LOL! But, dang girl, relax....LOL! I gotta be honest, you are reading too much into it.

Anyway, i thought I'd post in this one about your bb post too. It's a big pain in the butt I know, and I doubt ivillage is gonna change it for us....dangit! So we'll just have to gripe about it for a while!LOL! THe only thing I can suggest is this; every time you feel the urge to go back and edit, copy all of the text you just wrote out(that's what i used to do with the old bb too!) just in case it messes things up for you and loses it. Or you could copy it and just go and start a new discussion again and paste it in there. Geez I hope that's not too confusing...LOL!

Have a great evening girl!
