Abby 3's Comments

My mom babysat (NBA player and coach) Scott Skiles when he was a kid, my aunts and uncles were extras in the movie Hoosiers, and Dave Letterman's junior high English teacher was my junior high English teacher (several decades later).

As a child, that would sound like a great idea. As a working parent, I would be pretty mad about a last minute cancellation like that. I live in Minnesota, where snow days are inevitable, but I don't feel like this is a good reason for me to have to either find last-minute child care or call off of work and leave my unit understaffed.

It rubbed me the wrong way that at the very end of that linked article the interviewee compared cord-clamping to (male and female) circumcision. Not remotely the same thing. The placenta is an organ that is made for one specific purpose--nutrient and gas exchange for a fetus. When that job is done, the placenta stops working. Removing what was designed as a disposable organ is not the same as removing living tissue.

My 3-year-old came to me at the park once crying because a baby *almost* touched her. She also got really upset the other night when I told her she couldn't take the broom and dustpan to bed with her.

One year in college my roommate and I bought coloring books and crayons the week before finals so that we could take coloring breaks during studying. It was very therapeutic.

He's a big baby, but he's not the world's largest. There was a 19-pound baby just a few years ago from Indonesia that made the news.

The Smitten.

So, I realize it's more like gloves than mittens, but Shirt + Mitten = Smitten. And you're kind of hugging yourself, referencing another meaning of smitten.

Apples to Apples is great. I still laugh when I think about the time I was playing with my sisters and mom and cousins. My mom was the judge and she picked "charging rhinos" as the best answer for "sexy". Because of the horns.

That looks amazing. I mad a s'mores pie once. It was delicious, but kind of messy. The filling was a chocolate pudding mixture, and there where marshmallows on top that I toasted by putting it in the oven for a few minutes. Yummy.

July 9, 2008 is when the old post is from. So, over a year, not that quickly. The Web Urbanist article incorrectly states that that installation is from June of 2009, but even their own image credit link will confirm it was last year.

If you work in a hospital, pagers are not a dead technology at all. They're way more convenient and less intrusive to patients than cell phones or walkie-talkies.
