Hi ladies,


Some of you might have seen this story about one mom from an internet playgroup who 'diagnosed' an eye cancer in another mom's baby from a photo that she'd posted online:

  Event.observe($('fullSizedImage'), 'load', function(event) { pageTags.addTagListToImg('fullSizedImage', ); });

I had read about that somewhere else and thought it was amazing. I think that I have friends here that would be upfront and honest enough to say something just like that if it were one of us involved.


I love this board b/c it has been such a support system for me from day one. I found myself coming here to ask questions and look for advice when I was "stuck" trying to take care of my kiddos. I also have made many close friends here, met many in real life, and miss everyone when I don't "talk" to them daily!

The first thing that comes to mind is the early days of parenting when we compared notes on best baby bottles and reflux issues. I remember diagnosing each other's kids rashes. I've posted pics of rashes many times.


But my favorite was learning to expect poop smeared baby in the crib after Mason and Trent made a mess of themselves. LOL that was a classic.

I have made friends on this board that I would never have known if it wasn't for ivillage & our babies. I've gone on vacation with people from here, talked on the phone. And, obviously, if it wasn't for all the inspiring words & shoulders to cry on I couldn't have gotten through my divorce. I'll always remember someone saying that I was lucky enough to have 100's of women all over the US who would kick some butt for me if I needed it...same back at ya ladies! ;)
