16mo going after other people’s food

My ds is always going after other people’s food. He get’s more than enough to eat. But he want’s what everyone else has. He’s very persistant and crawls on top of everyone to take their food. He won’t stop until he’s giving a bite. And then he wants more and more.

I want him to learn that it’s not okay to take things from others.

Re: 16mo wants to eat everything!

Wow, I’m sorry if this is confusing to anyone. My son is in the 90th percintile for weight. He is not hungry, trust me. I’m not going to let him eat 24/7, which is what he’ll do. He eats as much of his food as he wants and is given snacks several times a day. The problem is that he wants what other people have, even if he has his own food. He will drop his food to go after others. It’s not a matter of me keeping him from food.

Re: PLEASE DELETE

No worries. I just wish he didn’t want to eat everything off my plate. It’s difficult to schedule everyone to eat when my ds eats, so that’s not really an option. We just have to continually distract him from our food. And he’s also nursing 4 times a day, quite heartily. I just worry about letting him eat too much. But apparantly I’m starving him. Which is why he weighs 28lbs.

First of all, obviously he is hungry, people said to put him in his own chair and feed him. YOU took the advice as criticism, which it really wasn’t until you kind of got bitchy.

http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nhanes/growthcharts/set1clinical/cj41l017.pdf

28lbs is NOT the fucking 90th percentile for 16month old baby boys. It is 90% for 12month olds. He is somewhere around the 60 percentile.

Feed your kid, grow up, and get some panties.

    That’s what I said. Feed him. He’s hungry.

  2. bored says:

    wow 28 lbs for a 16 mo. old? dang. my DS just turned 2 and he only weighs 27lbs . anyway, I don’t think its that her baby is hungry..maybe just bored or something. 16 mo. old and already an emotional eater. lol

  3. naturalmamadot says:

    ditto bored lol my 25 month old is only 22 lbs, perfect for HIM (as in, that is his normal growth curve) and not hungry in the least, trust me I try to get him to eat lol but he definitely wants what others have just because but if i give him the EXACT same food, even if he sees me grab it off their plate, he is no longer intersted.

  4. Angel says:

    My 26 month old is 22 lbs so I can understand her saying her son is large for his age. And Lette always wanted what everyone else had too. Even if she wasnt hungry!

  5. try me, i'm new! says:

    meh, 16 months isn’t time yet to teach table manners. it won’t hurt anyone to share a bit with the baby and will broaden his palette. keep him away from crap food and let him go at it – in the absence of serious medical issues, a baby will not overeat. and if he’s going after others’ food and ignoring his own, well, welcome to toddlers.

  6. try me, i'm new! says:

    http://hyenacart.com/prod_details.php?id=36723&vid=200001

    $120.00 wtf? how much were these new?

  7. Naturally Pampered says:

    I’m sorry if I appeared bitchy. I was simply offended that an obvious thing such as feeding my child was suggested. I never said my child was hungry. I said he takes other people’s food when he has his own. It’s pretty silly that the answer is ‘feed your child’ when I’m asking about his behavior.
    I was told by my ped that his weight is in the 90% percentile. I thought this seemed odd, thank you for pointing that out. I will bring it up at his next doctors appointment. =)

  8. JustPeachy says:

    I can attest to #3s post. Her ds won’t eat unless its on someone elses plate LOL.
    Seriously just give the kid some of whatever it is you are eating and let him have at it. Is she not feeding him solids yet or something?

  9. naturalmamadot says:

    hes 16 months i bet she is haha, i am all for delayed solids, but ive only known 3 kids to not eat any solids til 16 months, one was becasue she refused to and 2 was medical reasons lol

  10. naturalmamadot says:

    (the child refused to, not the mom)

  11. Naturally Pampered says:

    My son’s weight was last measured at 15mos, which is in the 90th percentile, based on the link you posted.

  12. DSDM2 says:

    No it isn’t, it is 80th percentile at 15 months. Check again.

    If a child wants food, give it to him, he needs it, he is hungry. Sit him apart from other kids in a high chair or in HIS area, and give him some food, if he wants something the others have, take a little, and put it on his plate.

  13. Naturally Pampered says:

    90% of 15 month old children fall within the normal range of 19 to 27 pounds. This would make 28lbs in the 90th percentile.
    Stats are from: Centers for Disease Control website at http://www.cdc.gov/growthcharts/.

  14. Aj says:

    Yeah, you got pretty defensive pretty quick…as usual! Maybe if you were a little more articulate in your original post, we wouldn’t have pointed out the obvious.

    You are the first person I ever put on ignore, followed by Jesusfreak928, a close second.

    Methinks if you are a wahm and are trying to sell your goods, you should think before you post. I for one, will never.buy.your.products.period.

  15. Aj says:

    Oh, and so glad you’re back dsdm2!

  16. Booyah says:

    What a shocker, yet another drama thread entitled “Please Delete.” Not only are those about as common as illiterate people making Facebook quizzes, they are also a huge read magnet.

  17. Aj says:

    I’m so sorry…

  18. Naturally Pampered says:

    It was not my intent to offend anyone. I can’t imagine why anyone would be offended. I’m a wahm as a hobby, so if you don’t wish to buy from them, that’s okay. I’m sorry if my post was confusing to some, but I never said my son was hungry, I never said that I deny him food. So, it really wasn’t that confusing. Luckily there are more than enough people who were able to comprehend my confusing post, so I got some insight that I was looking for. This is quite possibly one of the silliest things to try to turn into drama. But there has been a draught, so I guess “any port in a storm” applies here.

  19. Aj says:

    I believe the first page of posts show that you were not clear in your situation and what advice you were seeking. Had you not gone back and edited, maybe we could see why it was so confusing. To me, it sounded as though you didn’t want to feed your son.

  20. Naturally Pampered says:

    I removed that ‘he begs for other people’s food’, I should have said he demands other people’s food. And I added this to the first post.. “I want him to learn that it’s not okay to take things from others.” So, it was not confusing enough to assume I don’t feed him. My OP says and has always said “He gets more than enough to eat.” So, there was no confusion. It was simply sarcastic comments that were uncalled for.

  21. CJ says:

    I’m not on DS anymore so I haven’t replied over there.

    My son is always wanting what we have in the way of food. I do think that is normal for their age. They want to try what the grown ups and big kids have and it is a great way to keep their tastes open to different things.

    I also think that it is okay to want to start teaching manners at an early age. (Not saying that you must, but if you want to that is fine.)
    If my son grabs for something I tell him, “No. Don’t grab. That is not yours.” Then I remind him “If you would like to have some, you need to ask properly and say please.” He is 22 months and doesn’t speak much yet, but he understands and does know the sign for please. I am trying to get his older brother to enforce that too so that he doesn’t grab from him and start a fight.
    He still needs reminding to say please of course, but at least it is a start. Just a suggestion if manners is what you are looking at.

  22. Naturally Pampered says:

    Thank you CJ. My son is a rough and tumble kind of boy and I’m trying to teach him early on how to control his temper, before it get’s out of control. I’m trying to prepare us both for the terrible two’s. πŸ˜‰

  23. amessymama says:

    My niece did this. She wanted nothing to do with you unless you were eating. We shared with her. She’s 2 now and hasn’t done it for a while now. Oh and she’s a skinny minnie.

    It’s probably a phase, that’s why I suggested you just feed him.

    If my DD (12 months) notices I’m eating something, she just opens her mouth. She’ll totally be on the other side of the room, just sittin’ there with her mouth wide open, staring at my food. It’s hilarious! I only share if she crawls her little booty over to me though. πŸ™‚

  24. CJ says:

    I think it is a phase too. It is all part of them learning and growing and trying new things. It’s perfectly natural. We just have to help them find a way to ask that isn’t about grabbing and taking. It’s hard for the little ones b/c at the same time that they are discovering food, they are just discovering communication and haven’t mastered that yet.

    I also meant to say before too that along with learning to say please, we also have to teach them how to react when they say please and the answer is no. For instance, if my son asks for a cookie and it’s not an appropriate time, he’s not going to get it just b/c he says please. (although it is very cute and hard to resist!) I let him know what he can have and then let him choose from the provided options.

  25. Erin says:

    #6, that looks like a serious case of “buyer’s remorse”.

  26. NewfieMomma says:

    #6. If i was going to spend that kind of $ on a diaper bag (which, BTW, would be never) I’d at least want decent pics first. Those pics suck!

  27. HolyDramaBatMan says:

    I’ve read some of the things you drama mamas post and think to myself…wow you must have alot of time on your hands. And just remember everything comes around, you guys are gonna get bit in the arse…I can’t wait to see it πŸ™‚

  28. Madre says:

    my 19-month old demands food too. and you know what? I give her a bite and she’s usually happy. she doesn’t over eat b/c I give her something and yes, she is ALWAYS interested in others’ food more than her own. I use it as an opportunity to expose her to new foods.

  29. Madre says:

    #6, from what I can tell, that goodmama bag looks cute. but not $120 cute.

  30. sheepthrills says:

    “He won’t stop until he’s giving a bite. And then he wants more and more.”

    The statement that he wants ‘more and more’ tells me right there he’s hungry. So he’s got it into his head that the food on your plates is better? Big deal. He’s a toddler-if it’s not one weird phase it’s another, and one day he’ll have forgotten all about it and moved on to something else. I highly doubt that if you just humor him for a while, he’s going to grow up into a mannerless outcast of society.

    BTW my 14 month old weighs 33 lbs, and if he would eat food heartily even if from other’s plates, I’d be ecstatic. Feeding that finicky kid is really aggravating.

  31. coffee drinker says:

    I have a cousin who is a lot like this….just wants to eat and snack all day, she will even eat till she gets sick. I really believe some children just enjoy eating, wether they need the food or not.

  32. cdc3030 says:

    Yep I would have to say, let the kid eat! 16mo are not mentally developed enough to understand “mine” “yours” or any boundaries like that. The food on the plate next to him is just as much “his” as the food on your plate.

    So, give him some of your food. Let him have as much of it as he wants. He might not want the “baby” food you give him, my DD would never eat baby food.

    You can teach him manners by teaching him to be thoughtful and considerate. At this point in his life, you teach him that by being thoughtful, considerate and respectful of him and his needs in a developmentally appropriate manner. And, as this is your first child, I would suggest looking at some books on child development so you can understand what your child is ready for, and what you can expect from him.

  33. Messy says:

    I gotta know… How do you let a kid “climb on your head” while you eat? How does a kid get to the point at such a young age that they can/do climb on top of your head??? If you can instill in him that playing with your glasses is a no-no then how about next you start with CLIMBING ON PEOPLE’S HEADS???
    And ya know, with the OP it isn’t the situation in her posts that are drama, IT IS HER. She is always drama. A new mama with zip for life experience who wants to tell everyone how right she is and when she hears things she doesn’t want to, tell them how wrong they are. Sorta like naming a store “Naturally Pampered” and then being offended at the sight of babies/toddlers in tutus @@ It’s only natural if she made it I suppose :::gag:::

  34. Messy says:

    Also, while the OP might not care that nobody wants to deal with her in her store… After all, it’s just a hobby! She should think about those in the congo that she advertises in her siggy. She reflects on them as well. It always amazes me when someone goes into WAHMdom and then says they don’t care if they lose business… Then why bother? There are plenty of WAHMs out there that do care and don’t have the drama and need the money.

  35. Messy says:

    (((DSDM2))) Hope things get better soon!!!

  36. Rain Cloud says:

    geez.

    My oldest was 32 pounds at 12 months! He was in the 97th percentile and now he is over 6 foot tall at 14 years old and skinny too!

    I fed my child b/c when he was hungry, even at 16 months old!

    This mother obviously has issues with her own insecurities.

  37. naturalmamadot says:

    messy, is she the one that got all crazy over the tutu pics? that right there would make me steer verrrry clear of her store, this little bit didnt whatsoever but yea the tutu thing was ridiculous.

  38. try me, i'm new! says:

    #28, we’ve btdt. yes, we’re terrible, yes, we’re going to hell. you can move along, kthx.

    btw, the next line usually trotted out is something along the lines of “where are your kids while you sit online” or “what are you teaching your kids if you act like this.” you get bonus points for combining those two statements into one post.

    gotta go – my 1 yo is trying to climb on my head.

  39. Messy says:

    #38 She gets crazy and is bitchy about everything… But yeah, she was a tutu hater @@ You know, kids are only “natural” if they are dressed in long sleeves with pants and wrapped in a blanket! Learn to hide those bodies early on!!!
    Ya know, perhaps with her not wanting to let her kid eat when he is obviously hungry and blaming it on his being so big, combined with her other body-drama and craptastic quips thrown out here and there, I am starting to see that *she has body issues and is probably deflecting them onto her son.

  40. Messy says:

    #39 ROFLMAO!!!
    Mind you, make sure that he does not disturb your glasses while he climbs on your head!

  41. Messy says:

    #28 I got bit in the ass last night! OMG! Do you want details because I usually keep what goes on between the sheets a little confidential. But you seem so interested!
    Yeah baby. Come bite me again! MMMwwwaaa!!!

  42. Megan says:

    My daughter was the same way: curious, especially with food. Just like Madre (29) said, I used it as a way to introduce new foods. EVERYONE always made comments about how she was always eating, and how FAT she was. Well, now she’s a healthy, 2.5-year-old toddler, who’s a bean pole! 39-inches tall and 30 pounds. Better still, she eats ANYTHING! She loves things like sushi and calamari, all things hot and spicy, and veggies like spinach salad, sauteed swiss chard, you name it, she gobbles it down and loves it.
    My son is 8 months old and weighs 26 pounds. Yep, he’s fat, and he’s already grabbing people’s food, on top of breastfeeding throughout the day. I’m quite sure he’s following the same track his big sister did.
    Basically, like post 5 said, he’s not the age to teach manners yet. If DD wants something we have now, she knows how to ask nicely, though she rarely does anymore, because she’s happy with what’s on her plate. It’s natural curiosity. Welcome to toddlerhood.

    I’m probably one of the more outspoken voices on that thread. I wouldn’t say “I only criticize behind my screen” I simply don’t think its my place to stop people while they are shopping and offer my 2 moldy pennies on whatever they happen to be doing. I don’t like it when strangers hand me their unasked-for advice or criticism.

    However, if it gets brought up (as in a conversation) around me IRL, I am just as vocal about it as I am online. I’m not shy about sharing my experiences with anybody. I don’t have the energy to chase people down and police their child-rearing habits in Target, though. That’s way more dedicated, ballsy, and offensive than I ever thought of being. And I’m pretty dedicated, ballsy, and offensive πŸ˜‰

  76. Messy says:

    I see a passive agressive gramma has chimed in. Yeah. We’ll read about her in the papers some day. “Granny Gets Her Nosey Ass Kicked in Target”

    Ya know, the only time someone chimed in about my giving one of the boys mt dew in his bottle, the person also noticed I told one of the other boys that they could not have any. She throws in her nasty quip about fairness and I explained the whole situation: “We just love this one more~” and walked off.

  78. monkey says:

    Sorry, I’m all for helping people and giving advice IF IT’S ASKED FOR… I’ve been known to give mamas advice on car seats in Target/Walmart… but only if I hear the parents discussing it or saying they’re unsure.

    I don’t butt in in situations like that because, for all I know, it’s something like Messy’s kid where it’s medically necessary for some reason.

    Granted, I’ll rumble if I see someone beating a child, but generally my feeling is, I don’t want people butting into my life so I should do the same.

  79. Messy says:

    #80 yup. In those situations where I hear them talking, I usually hop in if I know something they might not. But even then, sometimes I let it be… Kinda feel it out.

  80. monkey says:

    #81

    Exactly. If I hear there’s a discussion going on and they look like nice folks I’ll help. When I was home I walked past a couple in Target looking at two car seats. The woman was saying, “This looks safer, but it also looks like it would be really hard to install.” I happen to own that car seat (which I think is a really good one). So I smiled and said, “Sorry, I happened to overhear you, I have this car seat. It has a great safety rating and it’s actually really easy to install and adjust.” We talked about if for a couple of minutes, I gave her a couple of car seat websites and we parted.

    I also just think screaming profanities at a grandma in a public place (even if she did it first) is ridiculous. I mean honestly, screaming profanity in public is just trashy. What about all the poor people who WEREN’T involved at all but had to sit through it?

    The OP should have just, “Sorry I offended you, I was only trying to help, goodbye.” And walked away.

    But I really think its petty and childish to go after someone because you don’t like how her question was worded or because you just don’t like her (in reference to Naturally Pampered).

    This blog has gone from a wonderful, informative blog about scammers to a bitchy cat house.
    This would be such a nicer blog if the “bitchy gossips” could keep their banter to emails between themselves, or even in a group Yahoo Messenger meeting. You could call it Bitches Annonymous or something.

    But then again, perhaps the real purpose of this blog is just to be catty, and the statement in the “about this blog” is just a front:
    “This blog is not about making fun of anyone, or trying to make anyone feel bad. It’s just an ongoing blog of the going ons at DS”

    Ugh.

    I remember my mom asking if our son had water. He was just a few months old. I think it is very old school to give water.

    We didn’t.

    He drinks water now, but he is no longer an infant.

    TyCheyCrazy-yeah I don’t know if I’d say all that about my family. Weren’t her step kids coming to live w/her because the mother (or mothers) were in trouble w/the law too? That was a month ago, or maybe two.

  84. Messy says:

    #84 Yup. They got taken away from the mother… She and her dh wanted custody. It was a ton of drama that she dropped like a hot potato a week later LOL.

  85. seriously... says:

    Messy…do you seriously give your kids Mt Dew in bottles…that is just wrong on so many dental levels, not to mention the caffeine. Sorry. I’m a RN. Can’t help it. Why??? I’m just shocked. I had heard of that happening in the back woods, where they can’t afford anything else, but wow….

  86. myra says:

    Ftr, I don’t think the OP should have fought w/the woman…there were just some posters that I thought would have been more on the “good for you for trying to inform the mother about something you think Is unsafe.”

  87. Crazy Mama says:

    My daughter just turned two and she still wants what someone else is eating. She’ll let her food sit and go cold while she demands to eat off of our plate. She doesn’t want to be fed off of our fork though, she just wants access to our food to pick and choose what she wants to eat off of it, even when it’s identical to her own plate. She’ll grow out of it. As picky as she can be, she does have one food that she loves. ONIONS. Any time I put onions in our dinner, such as with a roast, she’ll devour them. Last time we had Japanese she sat there and picked all of the onions off of my plate to eat them. I did get her to eat some rice and a piece of zucchini, but mostly she wanted the onions, lol.

    #6- That bag is horribly overpriced, even if it was what she paid. Hobo bags are easy to make, and I don’t understand what she’s referring to as “due to the cost to make it.” What part of that cost too much to reproduce? Was it HTF fabric? She should at least take better pictures, perhaps outside or with a flash. And iron the damned thing, it looks like it’s been stuffed in a box for a while. Oh, and is that a loose thread I see? Yuck. Matches the GM wipes, for sure.

    But it was made by Jesus..ahem..Suzanee herself!

  89. sheepthrills says:

    I finally went and looked at the Goodmama bag. I have a permanent twitch now after all those unnecessary apostrophes. And I like how one of the tags for the listing is ‘bargain’. LMAO!

  90. chrissyb says:

    OT here, but anyone know what to do if I never got an activation email from CDN? I joined last week, but never got an email and forgot about it when a DS virus crashed my computer.

    On the water thing, I agree with those who don’t offer advice unless asked for. I ver nearly lost it yesterday though. Was at the park wit kiddos and there was a woman, and I use that term loosely, standing close by on her cell. She was very angry and loud, dropping “the F bomb” (as dh calls it) every other word and also liberally sprinkling in “shit”. She had a newborn and about 3 yo standing with her. I was trying to get baby situated and couldn’t move away, and my 4yo was very interested in her very loud conversation. So, why oh why would you talk like that at the top of your voice at a crowded park? Just as I was about to say something she walked away. Phew.

  91. Annoyed says:

    Seriously- don’t be so judgemental. Messy said she does it when her child ‘s sugar drops rapidly to stop suizures IIRC. I get judged all the time for diet soda in a bottle. My kids are DIABETIC – Type 1 and when they have high suagrs and won’t drink water plain I mix diet sprite with water. They told me this @ the hospital. I am also a food nazi that denies my kids food. When it will eff up their sugars more. I don’t have many friends since women are so judgemental. My super skinny kids eat Splenda and sometimes low carb- gasp. *huge eyeroll*

  92. Sharpie says:

    My fav’ thing about the bag is the off centered snap right through the Goodmama tag, apparently even jeebus herself can’t avoid shitty snap placement.

  93. Incognizable says:

    @ 6. Like all OOAK or HTF goodmama stuff they WILL be available again. Live and learn already.

    Plus it can’t be that time consuming to make right? It has a SNAP as a closure for freaking sake not even a zipper.

  94. Luna says:

    I want that bag!

  95. Luna says:

    $120 is cheap and my dh is a cop so we can afford it.

  96. werd says:

    86 – you missed it. Messy’s son is a diabetic and if his blood sugar starts dropping, if he doesn’t have some Mt. Dew he will have a seizure. She’s not a hillbilly. At least not in that respect. LOL

  97. likeicare says:

    96- she can give the kid some juice. Natural sugars are so much better than processed. As for the blood sugar- with my dew all that does is skyrocket the glucose level and then make it crash until more sugar is given. A good diet and proper medication is what that child needs- not my dew.

  98. likeicare says:

    97- I meant to put Mt dew, not my dew.

    I wonder if this one will get locked or deleted?

    maybe you should read the damn posts on DS and here from Messy to see why it is given before you spout off with your “I’m a nurse and know all” info.

  101. werd says:

    ummm… I’m thinking she only uses it in emergency cases. Seriously. Mommy wars are so 1998.

  102. Madre says:

    right, it’s not like he’s getting 3 or 4 bottles of it on a daily basis

  103. Trojane says:

    She’s just saying there are healthier and better options. I haven’t read the thread either, so I don’t know how much of an emergency it was, but having something better than Mt. Dew on hand when you have a diabetic is a good idea. It’s not a mommy war.

  104. Messy says:

    ROFLMAO! Seriously & Likeicare DUH! At the time, he did not like juice because I never gave the boys juice (I outgrew juice when my girls were little). He does like Mt Dew (did, he no longer will drink it). It was *fast, *there, and *convenient. I learned to use it via an emergency room visit πŸ™‚
    He is old enough and lucky enough that his diabetes is controlled with diet *most of the time. If others were not trying to explain this to you, I’d have just answered with “hell yea, I give my kid Mt Dew, and it is your business HOW?” Oh yea, it’s not!
    Now, Miss RN, feel free to insert what you know I am thinking you can go do now —> _______________________

  105. Messy says:

    ***Ugh, I am meaning old enough NOW. He is a big kid. Then it was crazy. His sugar would dip so fast that we had to watch the signs and even then we would get it wrong. He would soar on some days for no reason. It was sooo crazy!

  106. Foo-man-choo says:

    Please, get over yourselves and stop criticizing the Mt Dew choice for the diabetic child. Reaalllly unattractive quality there.

    And I can not even fathom what you meant in regards to the “backwoods” comment. Is Mt Dew cheaper than water in the hills you live in?

  107. amessymama says:

  109. Messy says:

    Someone is seriously defending using the word “retarded” as an adjective on DS. Wow! Although, I am a tad proud of her for stating her own opinion (when I am positive that others share that opinion, or the word would no longer be a subject)… I do wish someone would buy her a clue before her kids catch on to using the term.

    I use “That’s retarded” all the time for when people absolutely do stupid stuff. Frankly, some people just act retarded wether they are or not! lol I don’t have a problem with it at all. I don’t in a conversation call someone a retard or retarded as a way to insult them or anything though. I don’t think it’s nice to purposely insult anyone with any word. But if someone gets offended by me saying an action is retarded then they’ll just have to get over it because I’m going to keep doing it. I guess everybody is bothered by different things, can’t cater to the whole world! Shoot, I can’t even cater to our families because they have all kinds of stupid ideas about stuff! Much less cater to people I don’t know…

  114. Annoyed says:

    #96 – Just because you are an RN doesn’t make you a D expert. That would be the mamas that deal with it 24/7. Very rarely do I come across a nurse or non-endo at our local hospitals that knows more than I do about Diabetes. Since both my kids have it I deal with it all day everyday & have for nearly 5 years. Juice is a good option but we don’t use it since my 8 year old steals it. I use glucose tabs for him and icing for the baby (hidden in the diaper bag). There is usually always a reason why a mama uses one thing over another. I’d love to have you around to critique all my decisions. I have brinks locks on my cabinets & fridge to prevent my ODS from stealing food in the night so we don’t have regular sugars in the 600s. Yup – I deny my son food. Such an evil mama to keep him safe & out of DKA. I don’t usually post here & Messy can totally hold her own but I can’t in good conscience sit back and watch someone attack a fellow mom of a D kid.

    Re: Retarded
    I think that no matter how long people sit here and debate the useage of the word there will be argurment for and against. Yes some find the word offensive. No, there are others that don’t find the word offensive for whatever reason.
    I think that this thread could GO ON FOREVER literally. Just agree to disagree.

    ——————————–

    Since I don’t want to thread hijack, and I know juliankenzie’smama reads here, I just want to point out how hypocritical this is – so why not sit on your hands and just agree to disagree when a family member plans to name THEIR kid a name that you don’t like? Funny how it’s okay to complain about that, but for goodness sake let’s not discuss something that’s actually hurtful to people in an attempt to educate!

  118. Messy says:

    #116 I wish I could give ya a hug. I know… It is sometimes very painful to deal with our children’s differences, let alone have people critique them. We do what we know is right.
    FWIW, the icing. They tried that at the hospital! It was like a glaze for cinnamon rolls. K hated it. He still does not like candy or sugar or juice. He is strange about fruits and only cares for the ones that are not sweet like lemons :::gag::: He knows the *feeling when his sugar is going too high and he avoids carbs on his own as well. Although, he still does not recognize his sugar dropping too far until it is very very low. That is where we have the most problems.

  119. Messy says:

    Hi DSDM2!!! Hope things are going better!!!
    Stagnant Crys, WOWZA! You cried for everyone to “LEAVE YOU ALONE” so you could let this all slide away. Then you come and pull this shit??? You can’t live without the dramaz. You are pathetically addicted to dramaz and when they stop, you have to start them.
    And you have the nerve to say *we are the problem? Grow a set and quit being so damn… …. …dramatic!

  120. JustPeachy says:

    Im one of the ones who would defend the usage of the word retarded. I think its far more offensive to call a mentally handicapped/challenge person a retard then it is to call some random idiot a retard.

  121. Messy says:

    Peachy, I think of it like this…
    When someone says “You are acting like a retard” because they are doing something stupid, they are saying that the action itself is one that is done by retarded people.
    Follow me here.
    If a person jumps around being silly and someone says they are acting retarded, what are they really saying? They are saying that this person, acting of their own free will, is doing something that a “retarded person” does. When the person who actually has the diagnosis of retarded does this, it is often embarrassing, and a behavior that they try to very very hard to not do.
    People that are legitimately retarded try sooo hard to do things the way society sees as normal. They work 1000% harder with only .009% of the result (if that). They do not want their behavior to be noticable. They do not want to be the butt of your jokes. They desperately want to be *like you*!
    When my baby walks as fast as he can, in that funny little quick walk since he can’t run, and gets in the middle of a bunch of kids, he wants them to see him as a peer. Not later make fun of someone walking funny and call them by either his name nor his dx.
    People use to think that using the “N” word was appropriate. Heck, dinner conversation even. But society changed. It grew. We no longer enslave or put down people of other races. Why can we not grow now? We have moved past putting out “retarded” citizens in “homes” and such, but we need to stop putting them in the middle of our jokes and insults as well.

  122. Incognizable says:

    oh snap! Is #84 naturally pampered?

    If so your siggy says it all Amanda aka shit stirrer….

  123. StacEy says:

    oh mom2jake, how you entertain me!

  124. JustPeachy says:

    I get that line of thinking I really do but I think of retarded as a synonym for stupid. I’ve been this way for years despite a mother who does NOT appreciate it. As I have said before I do have a mentally and physically disabled brother and I have gotten more offended at people calling him a retard then I have at people using the term in general.

  125. Messy says:

    I agree with that Peachy. It would hurt me more to see someone call my handicapped LO a retard more so than calling one of the other kids by that name. The reason I feel this way is because of the connotation attached to the word “retard”. When someone has an asthmatic child, someone might call them an asthmatic, but then to turn around and call someone making silly noises an asthmatic would hurt the child that does suffer from it; the person who’s life is already altered by something out of their control just suffers more 😦
    Thankfully, my kids and their friends have been huge advocates for the removal of the word “retard” from the tween name calling dictionary. When other kids see our LO and realize the magnitude this will affect him when he is older, they seem to have an understanding come over them… For that I am really proud.

  126. cdc3030 says:

    Re: retards….

    So, It is not the nicest thing to say for sure. I grew up with that, along with “gay” (go 80’s!) for our favorite playful insults. But, the reality is I say loads of offensive things and it reallllly gets on my nerves when people are all nutty about pointing it out. So, when I say “fuck you”, I dont really mean I want to have sex with you. When I call someone an asshole, surely I dont mean the puckered poop hole. In fact, when I say “shit”, I really never mean poop at all. SWIM? When I tell my husband to kiss my hairy white ass….I do not in fact have a hairy ass.

    I try not to be rude and offensive in public, in front of my prissy inlaws, and at work (when I worked out of the home). DS, this board and many other internet outlets feel a bit freer than places like that…and many others clearly feel freer to speak here too. So, maybe you should just glaze over if you see things you do not like.

    If you would not approve of stopping a mom in Target to correct them using water (or Mtn Dew), you should think twice about calling someone out for using foul or stupid language.

  127. Messy says:

    Oh, I use foul language LOL. Fer sher. But… Nobody in the world has their life rocked and works to over come a diagnosis of “shit” or even “fuck” (forgive me nimphomaniacs everywhere :D) I type the “bad words” because IRL I say them. The fact that the “N” word referred to a very specific group of people and yet, we as a culture have outgrown the use of it, through education and empathy. The “R” world will follow suit soon, I am sure. I do not jump on people for using foul language. I do cringe when I see people using the “R” word. Just ask the rest of society would if they read something someone wrote using the “N” word.

  128. Biggirlpanties says:

    “retard” makes me cringe.. as does “faggot”.

  129. Bloggitybloggity says:

    119- yeah that really grated my fucking cheese.

  130. Messy says:

    #131 OMg. I am ROFLMAO!

  131. Bloggitybloggity says:

    128-

    The words shit (poop) and fuck (sex) don’t have the capability of having their feelings hurt when you use them in a non-literal negative manner.

    Mentally handicapped people do have the capability of having their feelings hurt. They (as a community) have asked people to reconsider the use of the word “retard” as an insult and synonym for stupid.

    Isn’t that reason enough to just.not.use.it. ?

    Calling someone out for their parenting choices in the middle of a public place is not the same as starting (or responding to) a thread on why retard shouldn’t be used as a derogatory term. It just isn’t. There are a bazillion different reasons why a parent might choose to feed their child water, soda, or gumdrops. There is are only two reasons why people use offensive words: because they are unaware that they are offensive, or because they simply don’t care. I don’t feel bad for telling someone they’re a fucking asshole if they don’t care about possibly hurting the feelings of a mentally handicapped individual or their family. I also don’t feel bad for sharing my opinions with people who are unaware that their words might be hurtful. After all, someone was kind enough to share that bit of advice with me.

  132. Bloggitybloggity says:

    132- Seriously, though. I have tried my hardest to stay off the “ZOMG– she’s such a begger/whiner bandwagon” because I don’t know her situation and I honestly haven’t paid much attention to it.

    But a person who posts that much about every.single.effing.thing. has NO right to hop onto a perfectly good thread and start handing out tsk-tsks because they don’t find the subject worth discussing. She also needs to learn the definition of imply. To imply something is not the same as actually stating it. Just sayin.

  133. monkey says:

    Let me ask you mamas a question…

    How long do you think the wait should be for custom shorties?

    If they’re from a seller who isn’t wildly popular and didn’t give you a time frame and used their own wool? I’m just wondering if I need to say something, but I don’t want to be impatient or ridiculous. I’ve ordered from this seller before and she always had them finished and shipped really quickly, but this time it’s taking a long time.

  134. Incognizable says:

    @135 how long have you been waiting?? is she still communicating with you or no?

  135. cdc3030 says:

    Sorry, just because FUCK YOU does not really hurt your feelings, does not mean that it doesnt hurt others. I swear. My MIL is horrified and hurt at curse words.

    And what moms are calling their down’s syndrome kids retarded? Retarded does not mean anything real. It literally means mentally slow. IF someone does something stupid (which is offensive to IQ challenged people), calling them retarded is actually descriptive.

    Calling someone a SPAZ? Yep, derogatory to epileptics. “what, are you blind?”, rude to the visually impaired.

    Just about anything you “insult” someone with, is, insulting.

    You know what I hate? bitch. I just dont think it is funny. I think it is vile and insulting, but I know heaps of women who use it.

    I have worked with disadvantaged children of all sorts, and you can bet I never use insults anywhere near them, other kids, or their families. But, I do call my hubby a retard, and a jackass, because I have a foul mouth.

    Im saying that the internet, DS, this blog, are places where people feel (rightly or not) that they are free to speak plainly. Jumping on people for offending you or accusing them of being rude, thoughtless, etc is just kinda misplaced here.

  136. Messy says:

    #137 I formally apologize to all those affected by “FUCK YOU” and who try their best to keep their pants up and their privates uninvolved in their daily lives. Hopefully someday all my kids will go to bed in their own beds and I will know *exactly how they are afflicted and replicate their agonizing desires.
    You know those little cartoons that when they cannot say “JACKASS” it blinks a pic of a donkey above their heads? Ok, next time you wanna call your dh a RETARD, imagine a pic of my son or any other MR child blinking above his head. If you can do that and feel right about it, then honestly, there is nothing more to try to say to you.

  140. seriously... says:

    What exactly about my comment was SO awful Messy?Seriously. I asked “Why???” I said “wrong on dental level” just to be funny. And “backwoods” means far away from local care and services, ie. can’t access WIC very easily and yea, soda is cheaper and HAS calories, which kids need to grow. So if you can’t affored milk or juice, soda would be next in line for calories if your baby needs to eat. I just said I had only heard of it in the “backwoods.” Jeez, before you jump down someones throat take a step back and try and see what their original intent was. I wasn’t the one to tell you to use juice, I just asked “Why” because I wanted to know. And thank you #116, I realize that. I have two kids with different health problems. One has CHD, Severe Asthma, GI issues, and Epilepsy. I’ve delt with my fair share of docs. and nurses, my oldest has been hospitalized 8 times and had 5 surgeries. I only mentioned I’m a nurse because that’s why I chimed in to ask “why”. I was effin CURIOUS!!!!! I WAS NOT THE ONE WHO spat out all the medical lingo.

  141. cdc3030 says:

    Nope. I dont see MR children when I say Retard. I would never call a MR kid a retard! That is my point. Retard does not have that association for me, at all. No jackass blinking above my head. Why the hell would I see a kid of any sort when I was insulting someone?

    Dont you see the other side? I have been saying retard since I was 8years old. It is a childish insult that has never had anything to do with any real person or child. You make it personal.

    And, on this blog, there is ALOT of bitchiness, insulting, slamming, and other totally rude behavior, some of which I bet you participated in messy. You dont care if you hurt someone else’s feelings on these occasions. I avoid being rude and bitchy because I dont like hurting people.

    My hole fucking point here is that there is alot of rudeness, insult and hurt going on on the internet. Everyone can get offended at something. You think your hurt is more righteous than anyone elses’ because your child is involved, but it just isnt. Intent DOES matter, and some of these dumb mama’s on DS are just not good at filtering anything out of their mouths. My guess is that they never even think of MR children, and the word retard means NOTHING like that to them.

    Calling out a scammer is one thing, but that is NOT all that goes on here. some of it is just sport attacking.

    And, just to be clear, I keep my rude behaviour at home, with the people who know me, and can correctly interpret my words. If most people heard the things I say in my own home, they would NOT approve. I do not think it is nice at all to insult people by calling them ANY names, and so dont do it.

  142. BffMama says:

    Oh Messy, I saw…*and* replied. And now I must start a fund to raise the monies to trek cross country. πŸ˜€

  143. Messy says:

    #142 Seriously… I did not touch that “backwoods” crack you made, nor the dental referal. You would know why if you had read the posts here or where it all originated. The fact that you just jumped in here throwing around your “cute” terms and crackpot (no offense to those afflicted with broken flower-housing-ware) terms.
    You and I both know what you were insinuating. I answered. Don’t like it? Don’t read it. Oh, wait, you didn’t. My bad. :puke:

  144. Messy says:

    Read the responses Darling. You will read where I totally understood everything Peachy was saying. And respected her for it!
    You say I make it personal. Fine. A lot of black people made the “N” word personal and fought to have it removed from daily vocabulary. Someone has to do it. When I watch my baby work his little diapered ass off trying to throw a ball so he can play with other little kids his age, then hear some kids on the playground calling each other retards for doing something silly, it does not offend me, it hurts me a little. When an adult refuses to acknowledge that they are doing something offensive and at least own that it is what it is, yeah, that pisses me off. But whatever…
    BTW, what is a “hole fucking point”? I want one. My holes need backup.
    Since you brought it up, I am glad you keep it at home. At least there it is only your kids that are being exposed to a term that will always get them glares and hurt people’s feelings when they repeat after mommydearest.
    Now, as far as my participation in the “bitchiness, insulting, slamming, and rude behavior, Honey, I fucking invented it!!!

    I dont get it Messy. I mean, I get the retard thing. and believe me, now that my kid is talking, I am watching the foul crap that comes out of my mouth, including calling DH names that will NOT be understood by anyone else, “shut up” and “kiss my hairy white ass” (although secretly I look forward to my sweet little girl coming out with that one in public!) included.

    What I dont get is why you can be rude and hurtful to others, and not give a shit, but expect people to be kinder to you. In fact, you are proud to be foul. ?????? “When an adult refuses to acknowledge that they are doing something offensive and at least own that it is what it is, yeah, that pisses me off.” Hypocrite much?

    Carry on. I think we need some scammer drama.

    I did read you comments. I wanted to know why mt. dew. I don’t see anything wrong with that. I was insinuating nothing. Why so defensive? If you knew me IRL you would know I meant no harm. Hell…I’m a former 2nd grade teacher turned pediatric nurse…it’s all rainbows and kittens over here, LOL!

  149. Messy says:

    #148 I completely give up with you… You don’t get it and probably never will. I own what I say and do. If I hurt your feelings and you let me know, I will usually apologize and learn from it. However, if you absolutely cannot understand how a term affects a whole community of people that are already treated as lesser citizens, then there is nothing more to say to you. People say thing all the time that I wish they wouldn’t. Hell, they might even offend me (not likely). But, in such a case, it is not offending me by making light of a whole populace of people who cannot help what they deal with everyday.
    I am not *proud to be foul. I am proud to feel secure enough in myself to either say it how it is and own it or admit when I learn from something and take it with me. If you don’t like how I say it, then perhaps you should change the circumstances of *why I said it and own it yourself.
    I know that all you are doing with my words is making mental alphabet soup, so with that, I am done trying to explain a societal faux pas to ya.

    I don’t have a problem telling someone they are being retarded. i have been saying that since grade school. nobody has ever made a big deal about it untill all this “politically correct” crap came along. I obviously would not tell someone they are being retarded if there is an actual mentally disabled person around. but seriously, its just a meaningless insult like any other.
    go ahead flame me….i don’t care. I think this whole discussion is just retarded.

  159. CJ says:

    I have a question for the mountain dew mamas. (Was it Messy?)
    I have been curious about this all day. I completely understand the need for sugar in an emergency sugar-crash situation. I am curious though as to why MD? Is there something in it that makes it more effective than say a Coke or 7-Up? I am in Canada and MD is not very common here. I also know that it is not the same here as American MD. So, is it something in the MD that makes it a better emergency drink or is it just the flavour that your child prefers or just that it was on-hand at the time?
    (Sorry, boring non-dramarific question I know but I’ve been wondering all day!)

  160. Messy says:

    cdc3030, you can find your total validation in the use of the word in post #160. Yup. Now there is an intelligent poster child for the movement of just making the word a standing adjective in today’s uneducated society! WTG!!! Woohoo!!!
    Blech.

  161. Messy says:

    #161 Not in our case. It was based simply on the fact that this was the one sweetened drink that he did like and would drink if offered to him every time, even when he would not eat or drink other stuff. These days, he hates it LOL!

  162. CJ says:

    #163 Okay. LOL. Here I was thinking that American MD was magic stuff! Although I suppose it is if it did the trick for you. πŸ™‚

  163. Messy says:

    #164 Curious… How does you MD differ from ours? I know they recently came out with some stuff called “MD throw back” but other than that, I have never heard of differences…

  164. CJ says:

    The main difference that I am aware of is that Canadian MD is not caffeinated, but American MD is high in caffeine. I was wondering if there were other chemical differences too.

    I was told as a child that the dye in MD would make a boy’s testicles shrink, but I believe that was true of all varieties. lol

    What is MD Throw Back? It sounds like throw up….I don’t think that I could consider drinking anythng called that.

  165. CJ says:

    Oh, and what is the crochet question? I am slowly getting into crochet so I am curious.

  166. Messy says:

    Yeah, you can buy noncaffinated MD but it is not nearly as good (or addictive LOL) as regular or diet MD! I just went cold turkey off diet MD, and am hating it 😦
    Oh, the crochet question was since I know she sews, has she ever put a crochet edge on a sewn blanket and how she did it if she did… I am wanting to sew some washrags but put crochet edges on them.

  167. theinvisible says:

    Naturally Baby wrote post 84? How unbelievably lame.

  168. Messy says:

    #169 BUT… BUTT… She just wants to be left alone! She wants the dramaz to stop and people to let her move on!!! She wants to prove herself. Yeah. She proved herself alrighty… Proved herself to be a dramawhore in need of constant attention and stirring of the proverbial pot.

  169. CJ says:

    Ah.
    I am sure that you can do it. DS has slippers that are a solid leather bottom and then crocheted onto that. They just use a leather punch to make holes around the edge and then crochet through those. If the fabric is really sturdy you could just so the same. If it is a thinner fabric which would tear, you could do small buttonholes to loop through. That could be a PITA though to do that many buttonholes!

  170. CJ says:

    Sorry, 171 was directed at Messy

  171. Messy says:

    #171, I was thinking of putting a blanket stitch around them with the yarn and a sharp yarn needle and using that as the “base” for then crocheting the edge. But I was hoping for an easy trick to get those holes into it uniformly… I am lazy.

  172. JustPeachy says:

    Ok see ya’ll got way off track here.
    Bitch doesn’t bug me anymore. I completely own my bitchiness and am rather proud that among the mindless women in this state I can stand up for myself and speak my mind regardless of where I am. If that makes me a bitch then so be it.
    However I cannot stand the word Cunt. It is like the most evil vile word ever invented and I think that is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy more derogatory then calling a female a bitch.

  173. CJ says:

    I can’t stand the C word either Peach. It is just disgusting and makes me cringe. That being said, most cursing and swearing will do that to me. My husband heard me say they F word for the first time ever a couple of weeks back and he was completely stunned and then ran for cover b/c he knew it must be bad.

  174. Seriously... says:

    They have little wheels with points that you could mark your holes with. I think you could use a fabric marker to color the points beforehand. This tool is at JoAnn’s on the Notions wall. It looks like a plastic handle with the wheel attached.

  175. CJ says:

    Messy, a sharp yarn needle should go through the fabric and as long as it isn’t a bulky weight yarn it should pull through easy enough too. If you need to you can always use an awl first to make the holes slightly larger than the needle would.

  176. Thud says:

    170 ~ of course she wants drama, she is stocking her shop, so she goes looking for the attention.

    For those who think retarded is fine and not using it is just PC crap you have obviously never seen the face of a HUMAN BEING who is hard working, kind and loving crumble into tears of shame and self-hatred at overhearing someone tell another person not to be such a retard. That ‘retard’ who overheard it ran crying and was found absolutely inconsolable with self-hatred because he knows thatthe same words is applied to him through no fault of his own. But hey, better that than just growing up and dropping a slur from your vocab. Yup.

  177. CJ says:

    176…Do you mean a tracing wheel? The spikes are probably too close together. Good idea though, just need a bigger one.

  178. juliankenziesmama says:

    #119. Please do yourself a favor a look up the word hypocritcal in the dictionary before you, in your apparent ignorance go telling people they are hypocritical. And also look up what it means to complain…because apparently you don’t grasp that concept too well either. It baffles me that you can even compare the two threads. No where did I indicate in the baby name post that i argued with them about the name, that I in anyway would disuade them from naming their child that. I never “complained” about the name. I expressed that i didn’t care for it which is my opinion….NOT complaining and asked for tasteful ways to make conversation about the name. I could care less what they name the kid….doesn’t mean I have to like it.
    But continue on in your lack of ability to appropriately utilize words in their correct context. It is highly amusing to me. But if thats what makes you feel better about yourself go right ahead.

  179. CJ says:

    “PC crap” ugh. Yeah, human rights movements are just a bunch of BS aren’t they? I wish that people would stop caring and looking out for those that can’t make a stand on their own. It’s annoying.

    (laced with sarcasm for those that can’t hear it)

  180. Messy says:

    #176 Yeah, that sounds like a tracing wheel. I have one but the spikes are too close together even if I just use it over transfer paper to mark the holes… If they came bigger… Hmmm… I am definitely showing my lazy here :::LOL:::

  189. magpiedpiper says:

    I don’t understand the reasoning that because one has used the term “retard” to mean stupid since childhood, that it makes it okay to continue using it in that matter despite knowing that it hurts people. If you are no longer a child, why continue childish speech and behavior?

  190. chrissyb says:

    Ok, just out of curiousity on the vulgar language front, do you censor in front of your kids, or other peoples kids? I don’t remember the last time I swore on any regular basis, but notice people swear around my kids a lot. I don’t really care what people say in their own homes, but man it pisses me off (hey I swore, lol) when we are in a public place with total potty mouth every which way.

    And the MD/ diabetes thing, it totally pisses me off (there I go again) when someone starts a sentance with “I’m an RN”. Yup, that tells me shit. (bad influence over here). Really an RN? Are you one of the mannnnnny really bad ones? Do you know anything at all about the topic you are offering advice on? Cause guess what, me too, and most of the time I don’t know shit about shit. So there. I know nothing about kids, wouldn’t pretend to. But if you are having a knee replacement I know exactly what to do for you for the first couple days. So the title RN does not give you an automatic pedastal (?sp) to spew forth shitty medical advice. Ok, thats all.

  191. chrissyb says:

    boy, letting loose with the language is pretty liberating, lol.

  192. MommyM says:

    Messy, can you sew a long basting stitch around the edge with a sewing machine to make the holes, then take it out after your foundation row is in? Now back to your regularly scheduled drama…

  193. Incognizable says:

    @191 Exactly!!

    Plus a huge difference between the using the “R” word versus say “stupid”, “idiot” or “dumbass” or whatever other word you want is that most people “choose” to be those words by their actions or inactions, whereas a person that is handicapped did not have that choice!

I try to keep them alive. Oh, and I have never given medical advice on DS, or here, or anywhere. I’ll chime in if someone asks about their baby’s rash but that’s about it. Any RN worth their salt isn’t stupid enough to go give medical advice out online. Yeah, I worked hard for my licensce and I’m not about to lose it. I’m a RN not a MD.

    ——————————————————————————–

    i was wanting to know where/whom you all get this fabric from? I am the actual designer/manufacturer of the fabric, and it has been popping up everywhere. I have other awesome prints that have not yet been “knocked off”, and I need to figure out if these reprints are coming from one of my very few licensees? I have people who are paying royalties and fees to print these goods, and it appears that there are some sources that may not be legal or legitimate. I am gratified that you all like this print so much, and I would greatly appreciate any information. I would never hold anyone buying or selling the goods responsible, and by all means, please continue to show off the wonderful styles and silouettes, but I need to get to the source of some of the re-coloring and reprinting before it becomes a major legal problem for someone. again, i am not here to threaten action or scare anyone away from using this print, but I do need to know if anyone can give me a source or printhouse that these designs are coming from. the only legal sources are in the LA market, and there are only 2 legitimate sources. I have spent my entire life savings developing these fabrics, and I take tremendous pride and care in distributing these prints. the only one that was ever sold on the “open market” was the brown colorway on interlock. there have been a few re-prints, but I fear that some reproduction was done illegally.

  204. chrissyb says:

    #201- Ok, if you are not giving medical advice, why say “I’m an RN” why do people feel the need to say that at all? The title RN carries a lot of respect from people in our society, a study done quite awhile ago showed RN’s were more respected than MD’s. I don’t get why people (not saying just you, there is one mama on DS who drives me batty, she responds to every question with “I’m an RN and I know..” fill in the blank) feel the need to respond in that way. Why not just say “I am curious why?…” And my thought is because you want people to know, you want to think your opinion counts more than anyone elses. Great for you you are a pedi ICU nurse, so you take care of kids who are in DKA and not responsive, so why do you know so much about how to keep a kid out of DKA when thats not who you take care of? And I was going to correct origionally, you recommended juice, the reccomendations for hypoglycemia changed a few years back. Milk is the first choice if someone is awake and alert. But hey, you are an RN you must know that. And I never would have said to Messy, MD is a bad choice, cause she likely knows more about diabetic kids than me or any nurse I know. She lives it. So whats my point? It is that the only reason anyone responds to an online post with the words ” I am an RN” is because they want their opinion to matter more, they want to feel special. Get over yourself.

    Uhhhh….Chrissy…I’m not the one who posted about the juice. Before you jump on your soap box, make sure you are jumping down the correct throat. I made one post about it and LIKE I ALREADY SAID, I said I couldn’t help asking because of being a RN. Did I not say I HAVE NEVER GIVEN OUT MEDICAL ADVICE ONLINE. Jeez…I hope you pay better attention to your patients’ history than you have the conversation on here.

  212. Kimbella says:

    Yeah, I thought they looked blueish/greyish. Here’s the pic of what I received next to a print-out of the pic from the spots listing:

    http://i733.photobucket.com/albums/ww331/kimbee-ann/Mystery%20Longies/SDC11114.jpg?t=1247065561

    I’ve already returned them. They also had messy short rows and a mistake in the crotch gusset, even though the listing was listed as flawless. They also had animal hair on them, even though the listing said pet-free home.

    I left a neg because I wasn’t reimbursed for return shipping (I asked for siggy confirmation to be reimbursed too, but I wouldn’t have left a neg if I wouldn’t have gotten that), and the seller is being annoying about it.

  213. just_sayin says:

    I thought they looked sage, personally.

    About the Mt Dew. If it was something that she gave her kid everyday, then I might wonder about it. But using it every now and then in an emergency isn’t on my radar screen. Your kid won’t get cavities from drinking a few sips of Mt Dew once or twice a year. Geez. And as all moms of kids with special needs know, the most important thing is taking care of your kids’ health, and not the means by which you do it. Let’s see, potential death from low sugar or a few sips of Mt Dew. Let me think….

    #203 – on the ooga booga…the post that “micael” responded to is a year old, and was when it WAS very HTF (and now it is NOT because it has been reprinted in brown, blue & various other colors…) Odd. The reprinter supposedly has permission, I think is in California, is I suppose selling to all the coops to sell enough to be able to reprint it (1000 yards to reprint each?) I know that MOM designs gave permission for the reprint because we (a few people) questioned it, talked to MOM Design…printer didn’t have permission according to Micael, but then did magically have permission a day or two later, supposedly Micael’s wife had given permission & he didn’t know about it (or the printer got permission after the fact) & those of us who questioned were out a source of fabric (the printer) and looked like asses to some coop owners, etc…so if this is or isn’t MOM posting on DS, they are on their own.

    When I turned them inside out, there were unwoven ends: http://i733.photobucket.com/albums/ww331/kimbee-ann/Mystery%20Longies/SDC11144.jpg

    Yikes those short rows are awful! I cant even begin to fathom how the hell she fucked that up. The gusset it looks like she missed a step in kitchenering the gusset together. Unwoven ends? I would be livid although it is an easy fix. But all that together and not being noted, I would’ve returned them too.

  223. Kimbella says:

    I don’t think the mama who sold them was the knitter. The listing said the “knitting is flawless”. ha!

  224. JustPeachy says:

    Well apparently she has no idea what flawless is LOL. I wonder who knit them?

  225. Kimbella says:

    I have no idea who knit them. The listing said “mystery longies” because the seller couldn’t remember who knit them or what type of yarn it was. She said she got them from HC. I thought that all of those transactions were saved under “My Purchases”, but maybe I’m mistaken.

    Perhaps she was a wool newbie and just thought “flawless” was a good word to describe longies when you list them. I’ve seen people who certainly should known better, that have listed longies as “flawless” when even *I* could see visible flaws in them while looking at the pictures provided.

    then #79:

    “Ya know, the only time someone chimed in about my giving one of the boys mt dew in his bottle, the person also noticed I told one of the other boys that they could not have any. She throws in her nasty quip about fairness and I explained the whole situation: β€œWe just love this one more~” and walked off.”

    then you in 84:

    “Messy…do you seriously give your kids Mt Dew in bottles…that is just wrong on so many dental levels, not to mention the caffeine. Sorry. I’m a RN. Can’t help it. Why??? I’m just shocked. I had heard of that happening in the back woods, where they can’t afford anything else, but wow….”

    You didn’t simply ask why, your post alluded to your shock and disgust. It was arrogant, rude, and uncalled for.

  232. theinvisible says:

    Oh, Holy Shit! I think Messy has demonstrated quite thoroughly that she can defend herself against any and all snarkiness.

  233. seriously... says:

    I know #233. I was wondering why she would choose Mt. Dew over juice or something else. Messy and I have been through this, thank you. I didn’t mean my post to come across as rude as it did. Looking back I may not have seen the seizure part, so, yea, my bad. I still would have wondered why Mt. Dew over juice though. That does not mean some holier than thou nurse needs to berate me for something I did not do. She went after me for giving medical advice as a RN, which I did not do. When she went back and saw that it was not me who posted on the juice she had to back petal and berate me for something else so she didn’t look like a total dweeb. To whomever else cares: Yes, I realize my post reads rudely. That was not my intent. Insert a couple of smiles or something. I was “trying” to be funny. I failed, obviously, lol! I already explained why I used the term “backwoods” which I would use a different term if I had it to do over again as I can see that as being offensive to someone who does live where you all are all interpreting it to mean.

  234. seriously... says:

    Yes, I think Messy can stand up for herself. See post #153, we already talked it out and gave rainbow hugs. Now if Chrissy would only leave it alone…esp. since her original issue was with me being a RN and supposedly giving out advice, which, as I have said, I never did.

  235. DSDM2 says:

    I think Mt. Dew comments (like about the hills/Appalachia) are funny… then again, I saw that documentary where they talk about it… but hey, my DH loves it, so I’m not knocking people… I think we might all be a little PMS-y today eh?

  236. StacEy says:

    Now I feel like I need to see that documentary!

  237. seriously... says:

    I do the Dew here (diet), lol! Keeps me awake after being up all night with the babe who doesn’t sleep. DH hates that I drink it, thinks it undoes our organic eating. Oh well…;)

  238. seriously... says:

    That was the one on 20/20 right? I didn’t see it. I am interested though in communites like this in the US. We need to be doing more to get them access to services and transportation. It’s gotta be hard. Where I live we have a lot of Hispanic immigrants but the hospitals and social services are excellent. Care is never denied and even in the public health departments the nurses jump through hoops to access non-governmental aid when needed. Certain doctors will donate prenatal care even. Hopefully with Obama we will start to see better access to health and social services for everyone. He wants to beef up public transportation across the country like in Europe, so this should help as well.

  241. Katy Sinclair says:

    I live in Colorado. People here think I am backwoods because I grew up in Virginia. I went to Virginia Tech. People have asked me why I went to school in West Virginia. I have had people ask me if I knew anyone who married a relative. They were serious.

    People are stupid. That is all.

  242. DSDM2 says:

    Do you know how many people think that Roanoke is in WV? That Virginia and WV are 2 parts of the same state? Or that NEW MEXICO is international, and not in the US? It is awful. And we want MORE public education and help?

    But not the real Roanoke. Roanoke WV is SMALL. Roanoke VA is a large, well known city.

    I live in what was very recently the “backwoods” of our state. Now we have Starbucks and a brand new Target! I’m only 30 miles from a very, very, large city so it’s really more like the ‘burbs now. Everything is spreading out from the big city. We were able to buy a much nicer house out here. DH works from home so that helps. Problem is the bugs…our backyard is a protected forest and there is a major river less then half a mile back from our property. This means I fight bugs regularly since I chose organic pest control…ha, ha! And we had to drop 1500 dollars last year to seal the house from bats and rodents coming in. We had a mouse and I freaked out, LOL!

  246. cdc3030 says:

    Well, dont tell the fake Roanokians they are not real. πŸ™‚

    We live in the woods too, I would totally bomb them with DDT to get rid of the mosquito’s. We cannot even go outside for 6 months of the year. Dammit. I mean, we are not going to eat the leaves, so toxins are OK, right?

  247. seriously... says:

    I can deal with mosquitos…it’s Palmetto bugs (ie. big ass cockroaches) the size of small birds (no joke) that I have a problem with. I found one on a pile of my Sticky Peas and seriously couldn’t decide if I should kill it, mashing it into my beautiful diapers, or just let it go. It was a horrible moment, I decided to go for him and thank goodness he moved a few inches and missed the diapers.

    Can you milk a cow?
    Do you eat chitlins?
    Do you think the south will rise again?

    How far do you have to drive to the nearest city?

    I answer:
    No. I married a Yankee from New Jersey.
    No. I hate stupid people.
    No, but you’re making me think about getting one.
    Yes.
    Ew.
    What?
    My family lives in a subdivision.
    Uh… I live in the capital of t he state. Our population is over 300,000.

    Now that I live overseas it’s even worse. A lot of Canadians and Brits honestly think we run around barefoot blowing on jugs and playing the banjo. So many people have the idea that a) the south is just like “Gone With the WInd” or b) the south is just like “Deliverance”

    I’m not sure which is worse.

  249. Thud says:

    Ah monkey, but we Canadians are all canoeing north to where we hitched our dog team by the igloo where we keep our stashof back bacon and beer, eh?

    The bampoms look sweet, i hate strings and applicators anyways so ill prolly cut the string off or ask her to make me some without them but I want these while I save up for a smaller diva cup! I love tampons and the diva equally.

    I do know some women who stuff cloth tampons or the sponges in a disposable applicator and then immediately wash the applicator in super hot soapy water and re use it. I asked her diameter measurements though gotta make sure the lites arent super thick.

  262. Kimbella says:

    Do you mean the turtle pocket shorties?

    The buyer said that they were knit really loose – even had pics holding the wool up to light.

    Then the seller said she received them back and that the buyer had put holes in the shorties and that they looked worn.

    That one? lol!

    She made my no B/S/T list. What a bitch.

    She screwed up. All she has to do is woman up about it and say, “I made a mistake, I’m sorry, I’ll know better next time”. And the whole issue will be moot.

    I have an item that was shipped way late on it’s way. I emailed the mama about it. I promptly (same day) got a response saying, “I’m so sorry. It was totally my mistake. I was busy and it slipped my mind.” She sent the item out that day and was super nice about it. She also covered shipping to me as a way to say sorry. I appreciate her response. It’s not the free shipping that placated me. it’s the fact that she was willing to be a grown up, admit she had made a mistake, apologize and rectify the situation. She’ll receive my business again because of it (it’s also someone I know normally NEVER is slow to ship).

    I got a pair of funky, nasty, stinky woolies once. They didn’t smell like pee or poo, though. I washed them over and over again to get that water clear. I even took photos. I don’t know why I didn’t just send them back.

    It was my first transaction on a particular board. The seller is a HC WAHM that makes woolies. She seems to be well liked, people rave her products. I guess she forgot to wash them before she stored them in her smelly, dank, cigar smoke filled basement. She didn’t make these particular capris, but I will never purchase anything from her (new or used) again.

    Re: education. I grew up in SC, proud owner of Dead Last Place in the country’s public school rankings. I’ve been tempted more than once to get a ‘I survived the SC public school system’ bumper sticker.

    And yeah, the ignorant preconceptions about the South are rampant (as I’m sure they prolly are about everywhere else, too, but since I’m in the South I guess I hear it more often). However, I have to say that traveling all over NC & SC for work – and most of those times to very rural towns – there are actual, live people that can back up a lot of those stereotypes. Shotguns, chitlins, racists, less teeth than fingers, confederate flags, the truck in the front yard that costs more than the trailer. If those were the only parts of the South I had ever seen, I’d have my own ignorant preconceptions, too.

  287. moxy says:

    Just wondering–I don’t know anything about knitting–why there are mistakes. Say you make a mistake and notice it 2 rows later, or even right then as you stitch it, can’t you unravel those 2 rows, or that single stitch, and redo it until it’s right?

  288. Foo-man-choo says:

    290- Yes.

  289. eeek says:

    276/278- yes. Why does she think it’s OK to sell stuff & send it whenever she feels like? If you knew you weren’t going to be able to get it out for over a week, WAIT to sell it.

    & off topic, but I just clicked on e-a-poos link to their site. My WOT (on firefox) is showing up BRIGHT red, meaning lots of people have rated that site as bad/scammerish. Are there problems with that company, anyone know? It takes a lot more than one person to change a rating on there, bunches must have given them that one out of 100 trustworthiness rating…..

  290. moxy says:

    So, um, another naive question, why do people sell flawed knit items? Not being snotty, btw, I truly don’t know anything about knitting and that whole market.

  291. Kimbella says:

    I think that it takes practice to get short-rows and gussets right. Not that I’ve ever even picked up a pair of knitting needles in my life, so I might not know what I’m talking about. πŸ™‚

    A new knitter or someone who hasn’t done a lot of short rows might not be able to do it quite right. Or she might not care to take the time to do it correctly.

    In the case of the longies I posted above, even after sending her pics of the flaws, the seller still thinks that they are flawless.

  292. JustPeachy says:

    Well I say they are not. The wraps for the short rows are knit in front hence the wonky short rows. All she had to do was slip the wrap behind the stitch and it would’ve been find. Knots I did them in the past but only for myself. The ends could have been felt joined. And the picture was crappy as hell.

  293. me says:

    292- Hey, the AVG thing says that DS is fine. I have never heard anything bad about the E-a-poos mama before and she has been around a long time..

  294. JustPeachy says:

    Its not AVG. Its web of trust which is a firefox add on. You can report sites that are shady with viruses and stuff so somethings up.

  295. me says:

    I was just saying that the ridiculous issues that DS has is not registering to AVG’s sensors. As much as it is recommended for clean up, it obviously isn’t picking up a site with definite and known issues.

    I don’t know if she is on DS anymore but I think she is on CDN sometimes. Maybe check there to see if there is anything?

    My Mood: How to Officially Report a Seller?

    ——————————————————————————–

    A growing group of us Mama’s has discovered that we are probably out money from BabyStoreGalore seller PASTDUEMOM hasn’t delivered our items ordered as far back as April. We understand she had flooding and lost equipment, however, many of us haven’t heard from her after repeated attempts to contact. She has also listed items as recently as mid June in her Etsy store. Should we all leave negative feedback? Can she be placed on the ‘list’? Thanks.

That is an incredible waste of resources for nothing.

    WOT is an add-on for Firefox everyone who has the add-on can rate sites, and I THINK you might be able to go to their website and rate sites without having the add-on I have not tried so I am not sure. It takes a lot of ratings to get one so horrible, which makes me (and im sure others) wonder what the heck is going on there.

    Its Canadian so its 33 but even that is too much for a diaper.

  312. eeek says:

    WOT is Web of Trust, it’s a plug in for the firefox browser. I usually find it very reliable, if I see bright red it’s almost always a scam site. OK, until now it HAS always been a scam site.

    Sometimes things come up in Google & I think “umm, why is the link for hewlett packard showing bright red” but if you go hover on it with your mouse & you see where that link is really sending you, it’s a scam site with a different name altogether.

    This is really the e-a-poos site, though…. it’s just odd. & no one knows any drama on her, & we WOULD, wouldn’t we, if there was anything all huge like that?

    & OMG that diaper should not be in the range of $33. I think the people who make lovely diapers should be well compensated, but that’s not a lovely diaper.

    312…i have one of their diapers i like it. it has a flap that flips over the snaps to that they don’t rub against the baby’s skin. No i didn’t pay what they are asking now and their shipping wasn’t bad either. i won’t buy another one for the reason we just don’t grab for it here we like fitted and wool. but if they made a fitted with the flap so no snaps were exposed we would be buying them.

    Tummy mommy is still pissing me off. I need to put her on ignore. I’m itching to reply to her, but I’ll just end up saying that she’s a whining baby and her dh isn’t going to kiss her feet and wait on her everyday, and then I’ll get my hand slapped.

I just remember being annoyed at her when she had her dc and right away was all, waaahh, I don’t think cd will work for us b/c they’re HUGE on baby! Like, yeah, um, cd’s can be big. especially on tiny babies. that topic is only rehashed daily here – this surprises you?

    Those are just classic CMC gems. I’m not sure why anyone gets confused when she’s ragged on. Someone that continually produces piles of crap like that should be tarred and feathered. Maybe if she was handing the stuff out FFS it wouldn’t be so bad. But she is charging for those beauties. Real money, ladies. I’d be too embarrassed to even hang out over at DS like she does (assuming I was ever dumb enough to charge people for my 4th-quality work.)

    The Bubbles Couture diaper says that it has “free” shipping in Canada but really we all know that shipping isn’t free, it’s just rolled in with the cost of the diaper. Shipping within Canada is pricey! Usually at least $9 including insurance. So the actual diaper cost is only $30 CDN. That’s low 20’s in US funds, so not all that expensive.

  344. Erin says:

    I’ll have you know, finding that pic was a huge undertaking on my part. I had to wade through page after page of hideous crap. I’ve had a migraine all day that just started to ease up and now it’s back. And I’m about to vomit.

  346. dirtyj says:

    I actually think some of the BC diapers are cute. Some are a bit odd looking, but that is just my personal taste.

    and were the CMC pants listed as seconds?? You can clearly see fading in her picture. That is just wrong. Also, one leg looks shorter

  347. amessymama says:

    Has anyone ever taken the time to inform conner’s mama that a child’s legs are usually the same length. Or maybe she found her WAHM nitch and only does customs for the kids w/ uneven legs.

    Thanks for the detective work. I totally ❀ you for sure!

    I'm not surprised that she displayed them that way. The turd tubes (aka: useless interlock longies) that I bought from her as "seconds" were ever-so-carefully displayed to downplay their very worst features. I was an absolute wool-newbie and I obviously didn't know any better. She needs a smack in the head. I bought from her almost a year ago and she's still shitting out those gems! How does someone work for a year on something and NOT manage to improve? How is that even possible?

  357. eeek says:

    Wow- the more pics I clicked on, the more uneven legs there were. That shutterfly is full of them. I guess if you ALWAYS don’t even try to make the legs even, and people just buy your stuff anyway, you don’t feel motivated to do any better… it’s kind of sad.

    lol I honestly would spend that much on a newborn IF I could easily afford it, but I couldnt stand to have them grow out of it so Id probably do half that nb/half 0-3 then sell the nbs to fund 3-6 sell 0-3 to fun 6-9 etc etc

    but I dont see me having that much money any time soon lmao good for her I guess I just wish I had that stash and a little one to put it on!

  368. just_sayin says:

    That mermaid is a mess. And creepy. I’d be ashamed if I made that. It’s like a cross between a zombie and a mermaid.

    The diaper stash is nusto. At least spend it on sizes that get more wear, like a 6-9 or something. I bet the baby never wears everything. I dare someone to ask her if she has the same amount put away into the little tikes college fund.

    375-

    Nope. That shit will fall apart. That’s how she rolls. I’m telling you, she pretty much has made a niche for herself by selling “sew-your-own-outfit” kits. She tacks the fabric together to show you what it should look like in theory. Then once you buy it, you are responsible for actually taking the time to sew it together in a manner that is conducive to a child wearing it.

  372. Bloggitybloggity says:

    370-

    I used to wonder the same thing. The only thing I’ve noticed is that the knit footie fabric on my WBs gets a little dingier than I’d like. It’s not really noticeable if you care for them right. I like to scrub the cotton with my wool wash bar before I toss it in the water.

    I’ve never owned wool pants with a cotton track-stripe, though.

Mainly, though, except for GM, who makes much if any money doing this stuff? Why hide? If this isn’t your “thing”, why do it? I can see when she says laughing about customers- I had one crazy person email me 15X in a day last week with questions on shipping one tiny thing, I had a guy just email me asking for a giant diaper for himself with a strategically placed hole…. these things are funny.

    I don’t laugh at people who live crunchy lifestyles though, that’s, umm, not funny.
    I just doubt that it’s a widespread problem.

    stupid ds, the thread is gone. I hit “submit” on this and got the error message. So I’ll post it here:

    I suspect (but have no way of knowing) that this isn’t about personal choices. I don’t think this is about breastfeeding or disposable diapers. I think the problem is a wahm who says whatever she needs to in order to get a customers money. There are wahms who put on very nice faces for their customers and then go behind closed doors and bash them.

    Lets not pretend that part of the joy and satisfaction we get from buying wahm-made products is the nice relationship we build with them. We know their kids names, we chat it up online. Its not just a business, this forum is proof of that.

    @ 371 – Let’s just hope she has a tiny baby. Because, um, DS could not even fit nb sizes since like a month BEFORE he was born.

  453. StacEy says:

    460: you know, I hear people say stuff like that all the time. Ds was almost 9lbs at birth and did not lose weight. He could wear preemie prefolds and newborn diapers for at least a month. And we’re not tall people….

    well, my dd was 3 months yesterday and she can STILL fit in NB dipes, but my previous DD was in smalls from birth, lol!

    If I was friends with someone who was also making things for me, then that person used the information I gave them to bad mouth me to other people, then, yeah, I’d stop buying from them. I’d also stop talking to them.

    #460

    My DS was almost 9lbs as well and while he couldn’t wear premie at any point (he was and is tall) he wore newborn until about a month because he was so skinny.

    I don’t know. I still think buying big so they can grow into it is better. Especially if it’s an item you really, really like… but that’s just me. I don’t care how she spends her money… but it does seem a bit silly. Oh well, she’ll be able to sell it and fund bigger stuff.

  458. Cheesewhiz says:

    My DS was almost 9lbs as well, but pretty chubby, and not super long. He started out wearing 3 month clothes because the 0-3 were too small. lol

  459. just_sayin says:

    You really impressed me, Lizzie. Some WAHM’s cough*connormamama*cough would get all defensive. The pic was pretty funny, and it looks like you could get a new gig if you get tired of that detergent thing. πŸ˜‰ Glass is in.

    Is this a clue? Can’t be the Stickypeas mama. Everybody loves her. This was the rave I was thinking of though.She got a custom from her a few months ago, was friendly with her having a lot of conversations, only thing it doesn’t mention is if she likes cookies or not lol. Grasping at straws here lol.

    And I am still drooling over that nb stash. Amazing and gorgeous.

  461. StacEy says:

    the cookie thing is unrelated, it was just a weird tangent.

  462. mdmr says:

    Lol. I was totally kidding about the cookie part. But I was thinking there was something to the WAHM befriending a few months ago as the result of a transaction part.

  463. DSDM2 says:

    The porn was both Scammy and D.

  464. Kimbella says:

    Wasn’t there some issue with Luvmy6boys (not sure if that’s exactly right) and the StickyPeas mama? Like, Luvmy6boys ordered a bunch of customs from SP, and then turned around and sold them, and SP’s mama was upset.

    Luvmy6boys posted in Shabby’s thread saying that she agreed that it wasn’t cool when wham’s befriended people and then turned on them (or something to that effect).

  465. Messy says:

    StacEy, how do you *know* the cookies thing was a tangent and not related? And ya know, Meg came here, posted after she saw everyone asking her what this was about… She even went on to play a game with LWI dye, a puppy, and *I think* you. All of a sudden, she had to drop everything and ignore the drama she had caused and run off to bed? Riiight. And I’m late for my Playboy centerfold shoot! @@
    Meg likes to be the *one who knows things that nobody else knows. She obviously gets off on people begging her for info and knowing she can string them along… I’m not going to waste my time asking her questions that she either won’t answer until her attention dies down or will claim that it was never a real situation and there is nobody to out because she is pissy that people are refusing to beg. She is like that. She is apparently your buddy, thus, my condolences to you.

  466. Shabbychic says:

    All of a sudden the baby woke up and I went to him and fell asleep while nursing him. Shocking, I know, that at 11 something that might happen. Believe me, I am hardly the only one in the know, not by a long shot. I said it before and I am going to say it again. If it was my personal issue, I would deal with it differently. It’s not. I was pretty sure that last night the person with the issue was going to pipe up but I guess I was wrong. And regardless of the fact that that is annoying, I am not going to go and say something that I said I wouldnt.

  467. Messy says:

    Then why start a thread about it? Why start the drama if you did not know that the person “in the know” would step up? Seriously, you love having people beg you for information… You love having this attention.

It makes the transaction so much more enjoyable. Your email last night made me laugh…it’s still making me chuckle to myself. thanks! πŸ™‚

    I remember Luvmy6boys posting the picks of that stash. She sold them?? Crazy…

  476. myra says:

    woops, pics not picks.

  477. Kimbella says:

    I don’t think I ever saw pics. There was some deal with lm6boys selling some of them to someone else, who listed them on Spots. I think lm6boys listed some on Spots too.

    Lots of people were upset because it was a huge custom order (I want to say 60 diapers, but could be totally wrong on that number) that tied up SP’s custom list and stocking, and then lm6boys went and sold the diapers.

  478. Foo-man-choo says:

    60 diapers is right. That fiasco changed the whole SP custom policy

  479. Kimbella says:

    I thought I might have been imagining that number – Who needs 60 diapers?

  480. StacEy says:

    messy, I don’t have a clue who Meg is talking about. I know the cookie thing was a tangent because…get ready…I read the thread at DS. Shocking, eh? I thought maybe she went to bed because last night she posted here at what I considered a late hour…and I’m in AZ, not NJ. It was a pretty good hunch I think.

  481. myra says:

    IRC, she sold her whole stash to fund it, and it was going to be the only diaper she used. I’m pretty sure she posted pics on a “Show me your SP stash” thread.

    I got the impression before that she buys “hot” stuff just to turn around and sell it. Imagine that.

  482. magpiedpiper says:

    LOL at Shabby. If you said that you wouldn’t say anything, and it’s not your personal issue, then why start a thread about it in the first place? If I was the person you told that you wouldn’t say anything, I’d be more than a little annoyed that you made a vague little thread about it but didn’t *technically* give the details, as if that was okay. What a crock.

  483. ESMommy says:

    #472 Didn’t Mrstkeller post to the thread also? Something to the effect that there are 2 sides to every story, and Shabbychic replied ‘or 3, or 4, or 5’. Doesn’t Mrstkeller work with SP in some capacity?

    My kids are messy. Hell, *I* am messy (literally ROFL). But that goes beyond it.

    There was carpet in both bathrooms of our house when we bought it. We ripped that crap out and re-tiled ourselves as soon as we could. No matter how hard you try, it’s impossible to keep carpet around toilets and up against bathtubs clean. And that’s if you are even trying.

  549. meagan says:

    549 & 553 i keep my vacuum out sometimes too—but i really dont’ think she’s the obsessive cleaner type–if you know what i mean. i just thought with the way the rest of her house looked and the fact that she was “unable” to take pics of the other two rooms, that maybe the living room looked out of place.

    and as to the carpet in the bathroom thing….yuck. i had carpet in our bathroom in the first house we moved into and it was disgusting. it was really thin but you could see the discolored ring around the toilet from piss and what not. let me tell you that got ripped out the weekend we moved in!

    Uhhh yea I live by a LOT of trailer parks…some that look so horrible from the outside and are so old and completely falling apart, some with high crime, some with brand new perfect looking ones and I know clean, nice, decent, hardworking people living in ALL of them.

    Dirty people are dirty people, no matter where they live or how expensive their house is it wont change that person unless they WANT to change, I know clean and dirty people living in expensive and inexpensive housing…

  566. naturalmamadot says:

    Well still, Im sure people would not love it if someone pointed out “well all the jews Ive met…” “all the muslim ppl ive met…” it sure as hell would not be taken as “oh but I said *that Ive met*” That person would get their ass handed to them 6 different ways.

  567. naturalmamadot says:

    Oh messy, I DO have question. I was looking into modular homes (for the future) and I was told that the doors/walls were like a trailer in that they were thin and it sucked if you wanted to play music/video games/hang shelving on the wall…is this true or is it just those peoples experience with certain companies/brands/makers??

    Also, Im not sure if the newer trailers have better doors and walls I havent really checked out any new ones lately enough to notice this type of stuff πŸ˜€

  568. not just another mama says:

    I don’t care. Thats the truth for me.. If you’re going to cry about it, you need to toughen up and quit being so damn sensitive.

  569. chrissyb says:

    #565 just wow, ok. Yup there are some nasties in our “park” but I would say they make up about 2 or 3 of the 135 homes here. My house is cleaner than most homes I have ever visited. Just wow, be judgemental at all?

    #574 there ae options if you are buying a new home, you can add upgrades to whatever you want. We upgraded to all sheetrocked (?sp) walls in our house so we could paint. We upgraded bathrooms to jacuzzi tub etc. If you are not picking out your options chances are your walls will have panelling, but even that has come a long way! DH’s family owns the park we live in, and he has done mannnny new homes the last few years as people upgrade, and honestly I have not seen a single one that didn’t come out very nice. We are definatly tight on space, we are about 1400sf not including the garage. But I will take small and somewhat cramped with no morgage over the alternative any day!

  570. Grogwench says:

    Doing home health, I’ve seen some pretty nasty moblie homes (no electricity, holes in the floor and ceilings-yes, you could see dirt and sky, etc) and I’ve seen some really nice ones like Messy was talking about. What bothers me about them is living in Texas they are SO dangerous. Tornados and such…no way to anchor them down well enough. I know, houses get blown apart, but MH’s get blown away.

  571. Grogwench says:

    Oops, hit enter too soon. I was also going to say that it goes both ways. I’ve also seen houses super nice, and I’ve seen houses so trashed that the carpet was worn down to the concrete and no running water.

    It’s not what you live in, it’s what you do with it!

  572. Messy says:

    #574 They are tighter than most houses. The insulation ratings are way higher. We loved ours! The walls have studs and are drywalled now, so hanging things is the same as in a stick built house. You paint the walls, and just live in it like you would a house…

  573. StacEy says:

    WHY would you post that for the whole world? I gasped out loud when I saw the kitchen and the bedroom beyond. The girl’s room is a pit. I need to go clean something.

  574. Messy says:

    StacEy, feel free to take out your cleaning needs on my house. I am sore and need today’s laundry and dishes done 😦
    Elabela, my heart is broken. I am so sad. So incredibly sad. You made me cry.

  575. StacEy says:

    I’m all better now, I cleaned the downstairs toilet πŸ˜€

  576. Hexe says:

    Was just looking at that ‘inside my house’ thread. Do people not have bedding, I mean pillow covers and matress covers. I would hat my bed to look like these.

  577. mdmr says:

    What happened to Elabela?

  578. StacEy says:

    i hate my monster.

  579. .bin. says:

    I’m sorry messy. I just thought people might understand if they truly saw how dangerous it is. I still don’t think she sees it, but it just breaks me that people don’t realize the effect their actions have on their kids. 😦

    It was one of those things, it was so hard to deal with every day, I had to learn to live for the tiny moments. I remember the only time she ever waved at me. She smiled sometimes, but I never saw her overly excited, but one day I got to work and Becky was holding her up on her shoulder(becky with her back to me, so me looking into Ati’s face) and I turned away for a second and when I looked back she was FRANTICALLY waving/smiling and almost giggling to me. It’s been 6 years and I can see it clear as day in my head/heart.

    When we finally discovered her love for popcorn it was a godsend, the only thing she would willfully eat.

  580. .bin. says:

    584: I just shared a painful story in the long ass whiny miles thread about a little girl I used to care for who was dying of AID’s.

  581. Messy says:

    Also, Elabela, if you are on CDN can you post the same thing there as a PSA? I am shocked at how people in this day and age can have their heads burried in the sand.

  582. Messy says:

    (((Elabela)))

  583. .bin. says:

    I’m not really sure what to post, but if you have any specific questions or want to start a thread and ask me I’ll definitely share. It’s hard for me to think of things to say unless asked specific questions! Don’t know why.

    If it’s ok with DSDM I can change over to using elabela here, or just leave me as .bin. just let me know DSDM.

  584. Messy says:

    Yup. I knew DS wouldn’t allow us to speak our minds. They poofed Earthmama’s thread @@ Niiice.

  585. mdmr says:

    I am so sorry Elabela 😦

  586. Laura says:

    I missed it (I think) what did you post Elabela? What thread was it in?

  587. Bloggitybloggity says:

    567-

    WTF do you think I meant? You made a classist and rude generalization. As naturalmamadot pointed out, if you said that about any other group of people you would have been burned at the fucking stake.

    575-

    Apparently you’re an idiot. I don’t see anybody crying, despite the fact that you insulted several mamas that frequent this board. What I do see, however, is an ignorant snob. You may STFU now. KTHANXBAI!

  588. Bloggitybloggity says:

    586- That absolutely made my heart bleed. It took me a moment to even see her in the second picture.

    πŸ˜₯

  589. .bin. says:

    Laura: There was a post about why people post things and then delete when they don’t hear what they want to hear. It was about the post by the chick who cheated on her cheating husband. We told her she needed to get tested(especially because she has a new baby and is potentially breast feeding) but she claimed only “dirty” people could get STD’s/STI’s(which besides the fact that her husband cheating 6 times in my own books MAKES him dirty, is so far from the truth).

    We told her she was an effing moron. blah blah. the usual.

    I posted some photos of a little girl I cared for when she was dying of aids, who got it because her father cheated and “looked healthy” so he never got tested. They were really horrific pictures. She was 3 years old when I knew her and her weight fluctuated between 4-5kg.

  590. DSDM2 says:

    .bin. if you want to change, go right ahead. It is up to you, I will need to approve the first post though.

  591. melmelly says:

    I just have to say that I am happy I was able to stir the pot and get Delphinium all fired up in the “off the grid” thread that 347 posted. It was fun. I may even post some more in the next day or two. She really pissed me off!

  592. Bloggitybloggity says:

    600- She irritated the crap out of me too. She was so busy running her mouth that she didn’t stop to realize that she made NO sense. Dumbass.

  593. Not Me At All says:

    Aww man I went to Harry Potter and the thread went poof! Anything good before it went?

  594. melmelly says:

    601-Were you one that responded in the thread? πŸ˜‰

  595. Bloggitybloggity says:

    603-

    Only about 5 times πŸ˜‰

  596. Biggirlpanties says:

    I wouldn’t say all trailers are disgusting, but most of the one’s done in the 90’s have carpet in the bathrooms.. at least the master bedroom, which I never understood.

  597. screenname says:

    That bedroom is a death trap. Seriously. Does she throw her DD into bed every night?

    And is that a toaster on the high chair?

    We have carpet in our half bath. The house was owned by a little old lady for 15 years who inherited it from her little old aunt. We just shut off the water in there until we get a chance to replace it with tile. There were other projects that took priority. It’s basically become a walk-in storage area. lol

    607: it’s gone.

  601. amessymama says:

    The CDN thread is still there. It’s in the regular chat forum.

    There’s always more than one side to a story.

  602. Not Me At All says:

    610 link?

  603. Munklettes says:

    610 – dang it! I missed the DS thread, and I can’t figure out which CDN thread it is.

  604. Munklettes says:

    Somebody, tell me what the DS post was about? I’m going crazy here!

  605. amessymama says:

    Basically it was about this but w/ the buyer POV.

    http://clothdiapernation.com/vbforums/showthread.php?t=25657

  606. Munklettes says:

    Ah! Gotcha! Why did it get deleted on DS? Outing? General douche-baggery? lol

  607. naturalmamadot says:

    and what was the buyers POV?

  608. amessymama says:

    I like seeing both side. I don’t know why DS can’t let that happen.

    On DS, everyone was on the buyer’s side. On CDN everyone agreed w/ the seller.

  609. amessymama says:

    Gosh I don’t know if I’ll be able to remember.

    I know she was annoyed w/ the pull(s). She said the elastics were really big and the seller offered to replace them.

    I know there’s more. Someone else who saw it can maybe chime in.

    She also said they were PMing back and forth, then the seller finally said something like no refunds, she was done, end of story.

  610. amessymama says:

    It got deleted for outing.

  611. Munklettes says:

    #618 – I wonder if the buyer ever produces pictures like the seller wanted? I know I’d want to see pics before i agreed to a refund.

  612. myra says:

    The buyer also said that the seller told her that she bought used diapers and that’s what she got…or something to that effect.

  613. Munklettes says:

    *produced

  614. amessymama says:

    Yes she did send pics.

  615. magpiedpiper says:

    Did she post them?

  616. mdmr says:

    Meh. You don’t “return” stuff on FSOT unless it was misrepresented and/or is defective. You justy resell it. Maybe a small partial refund for the run.

  617. Lolanae says:

    Anyone see that it looks like Miles is preggo?

  618. cdc3030 says:

    If you had read the buyer’s thread, you would have been on her side too. This is one of those she said she said things. Buyer claims that there are runs in the pul, and the elastic is shot, one appears to have been “repaired”….and neither was disclosed. With no pics, we will never know, but it is the sellers idea that the kid is too small for them, and that is why they dont fit, not that the elastic is shot.

  619. mdmr says:

    Shot elastic is a whole ‘nother story. If that is the case then she should get a refund. That is what I would call defective.

  620. riffrafflittleman says:

    #626 you’ve got to be f-ing kidding me?!!?!

  621. Lolanae says:

    Nope, check the TTC forum. She’s using blue dye test, so I’m not sure about it until I see a pink dye or digital.

  622. magpiedpiper says:

    Where are they going to keep the baby? In the bathtub? Or is that filled to the brim with crap too?

  625. DSDM2 says:

    Hmmm. I have a few minutes… I think a new blog post is in order… she needs an ego stroking.

  626. Messy says:

    MILES: Want me to say it to your face? You are an uneducated, dirty, wench of a woman. You have the debate skills of roadkill. Your house is nasty and you are ballsy posting photos of a child’s room that looks like a pack of rats live in (oh, they might, you wouldn’t know because you can’t see the floor!).
    I feel badly if you are pregnant because that will be a sorry life the child has to lead in that pigpit of a house!
    Now, so you have no doubt what I think. B.I.T.C.H. <—You.

    Messy you little coward, why don’t you post on DS?

  630. try me, i'm new! says:

    ohnoez, she knows where we are!

  631. Messy says:

    #640 You are kidding me, right?

  632. Just Wow says:

    I am appalled that there is even a website devoted to such bashing of the mamas on DS. It is sickening that you sit here saying such things. You talk about what terrible things other mothers are doing but you don’t take a minute to look at yourselves. No mother is perfect but we all try our best. I am not sure there is anything I can say to change your behavor I just couldn’t sit back and say nothing.

  633. Hexe says:

    Actually no, you said you would tell to her face.

  634. Messy says:

    #643 OBVIOUSLY, she reads HERE. And I did say it to her face, did I not, Hexe πŸ˜‰
    Can’t be outing myself on message boards now! WTF are you thinking???
    Oh, you must be thinking I have balls!

  635. try me, i'm new! says:

    640 – perhaps you missed the thread on ds where messy told miles to get herself some bgp’s?

  636. Messy says:

    #645 Oh, “she” did not miss it.

  637. Messy says:

    Awe, Just Wow, you have totally changed our whole thinking about the filth of Miles. We shall forever be indebted (is that like an “inpack”?) to you! Kthxbai!

    I couldn’t keep my mouth shut on “loonytiffony” post, she is one of the WOHM I can’t stand. That holier than thou attitude is just….ugh! Wonder if I’ll get my hand slapped,LOL!

    But isn’t it nice of us to give you something to be all righteously indignant about?

    Really, we’re providing a service. If we didn’t do this you might have to look harder for something to get your training pants in a knot about.

  642. StacEy says:

    monkey! you so funny.

  643. myra says:

    #649 -Many SAHMs have holier-than-thou attitudes, too. Mommy wars go both ways.

  644. smithmom says:

    #655 I know, that’s why I don’t get along with a lot of them,lol. That’s also why I put SOME WOHM, some of them are great and I actually have more Mommy friends that do WOH.

    It’s the ones like her and that have her attitude that I have no respect for. They like to “throw it in your face” (general your) that they do more for their family or they have more since they WOH, like us SAHM don’t do anything since we SAH. KWIM?

  645. Kitty says:

    There is no way I am reading all of this but my 19 month old is 24 lbs and eats like it is going out of style… he can gorge himself and 10 minutes later is begging off of anyone’s plate… so I highly doubt she is starving the baby and there is no reason to jump on her for that. When that situation happens to me and I feel uncomfortable with Nate begging off someone I just fix him a small plate and offer him that instead.

  646. Tummy Mommy says:

    Wow I just came across this site when I was looking for an old post of mine. I’m pretty shocked at how truly nasty you women are.

    Ya I took my kid to the ER for a 100.5 fever because the doctor wasn’t open (I’m in Canada FTR) and he had diarrhea and had a fever for a few days. I know when my kid is sick, and I would rather “waste resources” making sure he’s ok than to have him ADMITTED to the hospital (which is more expensive) when he’s severely dehydrated and maybe worse.

    As far as my disability, I’m in severe pain all the time. I’m tired, all the time. But I suck it up and get through the day. Ya sometimes I can go shopping or take him places because it’s not fair to my kid to be stuck in the house all day just because I’m sick. I can’t work and some days I can’t even shower, there are times when DH has to stay home because I’m in bed unable to move or my mom has to come over and babysit because I can’t give him what he needs.

    Ya, my DH is a good guy. Do I complain sometimes? Sure. I have no other outlet. Does that mean I think he’s awful? Absolutely not. Is he perfect? Of course not, neither am I. I don’t expect him to wait on me hand and foot, but would it kill him to pick up his own damn underwear off the floor or throw a load of dirty dishes in even once a week?

    Attention whore?? Absolutely not. I have a needy DS who nursed almost constantly so I posted quite a bit for a while. What else are you going to do while nursing for hours and hours on end??

    Lies?? I have not posted one untruth. EVER. Not that it’s important for some bitch on the internet to believe me anyways, but I’m not sure what proof you require or what you would even be referring to that I’m supposedly lying about.

    and yes, I posted about being disappointed that CD’s were so huge on my DS that it was impossible to dress him warmly. I was a new mom. I was new to CDing. I posted looking for advice. Had I known that MUCH trimmer systems exist out there, I would have been all over it. We used sposies for 2 months and have been full time CDing ever since.

    Doubtful that anyone will actually read this old post, but I just wanted to reply. I’m not hurt, I have a pretty thick skin. I’m just shocked that people can actually be this immature.
