I wonder why… could it be because you have 2 screen names and are trolltastic?

Here are photos of you from your 2 different DS accounts but the same PB account:

http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showpost.php?p=7391051&postcount=62

and here’s one as crunch http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showpost.php?p=10432655&postcount=29

same PB account.

Thankyou ladies!!

I probably won’t be here much longer, so I surely wanted to thank you ladies.

If it had not been for this little subforum and your educating me, I would not be planning on ERFing my son. I wouldn’t have got his carseat checked, and it’d still be improperly installed. Maybe one day we’ll be in an accident, and because of you my son’s life will be saved because he’s still rear facing. And if it weren’t for me knowing, I wouldn’t be obsessed about carseat safety. I wouldn’t be able to help friends properly install carseats so their children are safe. I wouldn’t know any better to tell people to keep their children RFing. So thankyou.

You ladies rock! Keep doing what your doing!

  1. Redhead says:

    I guess both accounts will be banned? I’ve seen before when mods allow 1 account to remain active..

    Anyway, here’s this..

    http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1003539

    Oh noes! Her 1100 stellar ebay feedback that she brags about ALL THE TIME might get tarnished!

  2. DSDM2 says:

    I would assume both will be banned. She was banned once before (temp ban IIRC) and came back with a new name at that time.

  3. Redhead says:

    Ok, I didn’t know she had been banned before.

  4. myra says:

    Anyone else creeped out by the “maybe one day we’ll be in an accident” line? What a weird thing to say.

  5. lurking says:

    yes, that line is creepy!!
    I would never even think of something like that much less post about it. Totally weird.

  6. smartassmama says:

    Looking at her first account, it did look like she’d had a previous temp ban. It’s an active account now, but hasn’t been touched in a year. I wonder what her ban was for before though?

  7. smartassmama says:

    And yes. Creepy wording. I think the sentiment is “if, God forbid, we have a wreck one day, he’ll be much safer.” but it was worded all wrong.

  8. Flat Stainley says:

    Maybe its a last ditch attempt to play on the heartstrings of those in power to decide her fate, as in “Woe is me, thank heavens I’ve made it this far without being in a horrific accident. Whatever would I do without the good judgement of everyone else on DS!? I hope I can stay.”
    I feel like such a biotch.

  9. Amygamie says:

    Now I am curious about what happened with the whole Crunch!910 thing

  10. werd says:

    well, apparently it worked b/c H2BAM edited the original post and posted in the reason section “No need for worry mama! Your account is fine. “

  11. Flat Stainley says:

    10- Annnnd now all the mamas who have any inkling of dishonesty rush to make their alternate accounts in the event that they may need to go on a scamathon some day in the future.

  12. sourpatchbabe says:

    Ohh, I can almost join the cool table! I just got my first not a warning warning by H2BAM. I feel giddy with excitement. Since it’s not a true warning/ban/strike, can I at least carry you guys’ food to the cool table?

  13. Flat Stainley says:

    12-Haha, was that from asking Crotch910 if she had a twin?

  14. sourpatchbabe says:

    Yeah, I was told that sometimes people make new UN due to ignorance of the rules and sometimes they make them because they’re dealing with stalkers/crazy ex/bullies.

  15. DSDM2 says:

    Well, if stalkers/exs/etc are the case, she didn’t hide well. She is still showing photos of her kids, using the same name, etc.

  16. smartassmama says:

    BS. H2BAMod isn’t even the one who was notified of the issue. Boo. Hiss.

  17. It's A Snap AKA BanHammer/ misfitmom@gmail.com says:

    #14 That is true but it doesn’t matter. The rules say that if you create more than one user name you get banned, period.

  18. ~*~Momma~*~ says:

    wow

  19. JustMe says:

    http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1003874

    Okay, sleuths…go!

    (karaintx on the wrong end of a trade, she said she sent items, but the other mama isn’t/won’t)

  20. JustMe says:

    And more Kookabums drama

    https://thedramaofdiaperswappers.wordpress.com/

    (just in case we needed multiple things to chat about)

  21. MotherMoonPads says:

    So. It was implied that I need to give Kookabums time to fix the transaction, but how much time am I really obligated to give her before leaving a neg & calling it a loss?

  22. JustMe says:

    How long has it been since you first emailed her about the problem? If it’s been over a week with no contact, I say go ahead.

  23. treeindawind says:

    I had an issue with karaintx-she ended up refunding me, but I really wanted my item instead. She was moving at the time and was not communicating very well with me (which is a little understandable). I was irritated to say the least. I still want my item instead of the refund lol.

  24. MotherMoonPads says:

    #22, it’s been well over a week (more than 2 off the top of my head?)

  25. MotherMoonPads says:

    Since May 27 when I received the wrap, I’ve4 been PM’ing her. AEmailed for the first time earlier this week. So it’ll be 2 weeks on Thursday.

  26. JustMe says:

    Over 2 weeks with no contact? What in the world do the mods want you to wait for? Definitely leave feedback (although at this point, I don’t know how she’d be selling anything, but it might help someone else get the guts to post their feedback, too)

  27. Redhead says:

    25, I’d leave negative, and soon. The only issue I know of that she has is her daughter being 16(?) and pregnant. Not a huge issue IMO, especially not one to cause crappy orders and slow slow shipping. Stressful? Yes. But worthy of her being a bad seller? No.

  28. Redhead says:

    I meant “worthy of her excuses of being a bad seller”.. typing fingers and brain not connected.

  29. MotherMoonPads says:

    Done. Bet I have a PM in the morning. Sigh.

  30. amessymama says:

    Weren’t there people defending kookabum’s design before? The microfiber against baby’s skin? Or am I thinking of someone else.

    Why are people so bent on helping this person stay in business?

  31. JustMe says:

    #30 – yes, and they were pretty much all newbs. It was weird…almost cultish how all these newbies banded around her and bought her diapers like they were HTF/stalkable, totally ignored the warnings of others, defended her in every way, excused her every flub…I was just waiting for it all to go up in flames.

  32. JustMe says:

    LOL, how did I link to this blog in my OP? Wow, okay, so the real Kookabums thread is here

    http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=974449

  33. MotherMoonPads says:

    #30, H2BAM was a big defender too.

  34. too true says:

    #19 I am very curious as to who that is…It’s a product not a lot of WAHM’s make…hmmmm

  35. Aj says:

    So, why is Cake closing up shop?

  36. Sala says:

    I love it how mods change the rules when it suits them. If they like you, they’ll bend them this way and that. If they don’t, wham you’re gone.

    And no way does the chit have a stalker or a crazy ex. Her husband is her first, no? If Tessa was afraid of a stalker then she’d never post names or where she lives or any identifying info. Plus do you think she’d be able resist asking for advice that she would have no intention of following?

    The karaintx thing: it’s not true they won’t allow retaliatory feedback. They just did not a week or two ago, we were discussing it here. The woman who was wronged had the option of the mods changing both negs to neutral or letting the retaliatory neg stay. Which is a bunch of crap and against their policy, too.

    Oooh, and I got a ‘friendly’ warning this week too. Because someone was got offended by my language so the mods had to swoop in and change my post. It wasn’t even a profanity. Granted, it was a word that looks like a curse word but is unrelated and means something else entirely. But alas it is an uncommon word here and so I get punished for other people’s ignorance.

  37. amessymama says:

    Oh, and I forgot they were originally made of mattress covers. Did H2BAM defend that crap too?

    Hmm, maybe they’re business partners. Someone needs to ask her out and out, why she’s intent on defending this crappy WAHM. I would, if I could.

  38. sciencefair says:

    http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showpost.php?p=10454393&postcount=29

    I swear, DS thinks if you recieve an item, even if it takes weeks or months…as long as it shows up you should leave a positive or at worst neutral. IMO, having to get mods involved in a transaction should never end in a positive. At best I give people a neutral. Even then, I usually wish I gave them a negative. But sometimes I can be a bitch.

  39. MotherMoonPads says:

    #38, don’t forge5t that it doesn’t matter if the item is complete shit too. Just as long as you eventualy get it.

  40. Flat Stainley says:

    That comment about following up locally? Seriously laughable. What’s she going to do? Call up their family doctor and ask if a minor is pregnant? That’s personal information that won’t be released. I don’t know how she’s supposed to be able to confirm or rule it out.

  41. amessymama says:

    Maybe she lives near her? Maybe she knows her? Maybe that’s why she wanted to support her in her business venture?

    Maybe she IS her?

    J/K about that last one. 😀

  42. MotherMoonPads says:

    I thought she had a 10 year old with some medical issues too and not just the pregnant 16 year old?

  43. JustMe says:

    Um, what??? So now H2BAM is offering to FIX Kookabear’s mistakes? This just seems so weird. What does she have to do with it, that she would offer to fix the item? That seems a really inappropriate offer for a mod to make (I mean, isn’t she supposed to be the “neutral” go between?)

    http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=974449&page=4

  44. amessymama says:

    Dude, they gotta be best buds or sisters or something. That’s just weird.

    Actually, now that I think about it, H2BAM was just being snarky in saying that. She knows MMP has a serger, so she knows that MMP can fix it herself, if she wanted. I’m sure that’s what she thinks MMP should do. After all, it was only $10.

    MMP shouldn’t HAVE to fix it herself. Kookoobum should be the one fixing her own mistakes. She should also stop making and selling her crap!

  45. Flat Stainley says:

    44-ITA! She was just diggin where she could while waving her “I’m so nicey nice” flag.

  46. amessymama says:

    Did you see MMP’s edit to her response to H2BAM’s offer?

    I am ROFL over here!! Hilarious!

  47. amessymama says:

    Forgot to say, way to go Denelle!!

  48. MotherMoonPads says:

    It was totally snarky. She can’t stand me. This isn’t the first time she has stuck up for Kookabums to me either. She totally jumped down my throat when I questioned one of Kookabum’s designs (so badly that Kookabums actually PM’d me apologizing for her).

  49. mamaton says:

    She offered to pay shipping back to “get it cleared up quickly” too.

    http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1003874

  50. Flat Stainley says:

    ROFL! Looks like if H2BAMod puts her skillz where her mouth er fingers are, she will be busy for a while! 😀

  51. MotherMoonPads says:

    lol #46. I guess I’m feeling a little bitchy today. FWIW, I took the pics I was obligated to take (although I’d really love to blurr my face since I don’t really want to be the posterchild for a shoddy product but don’t know how), and I’ll cut it up and make Eleanor some dresses out of it. It’ll be perfect for trim fabric (it’s certainly not sturdy enough to be a wrap, and it’s quite narrow so I don’t want to trim too much off fixing her serging).

  52. MotherMoonPads says:

    #49, honestly that makes me feel like it’s not so personal. Maybe she is just trying to help?

  53. Redhead says:

    Part of me thinks she is being snarky, but then-part of me thinks she feels bad for raising a stink about any negative reviews on Kooka’s in the past..

  54. MotherMoonPads says:

    I’m feeling pretty conflicted too, Redhead.

  55. Just Peachy says:

    Photobucket or if ya want one of us could do it for ya Denelle. That sucks you got a shitty product.

  56. amessymama says:

    My vote is still for snark. Like I said, she knows you have a serger and she knows you could fix it.

  57. JustMe says:

    makes a lot more sense if it was snarky.

  58. MotherMoonPads says:

    Peachy, you can do it in PB? How?

  59. Just Peachy says:

    If you go to edit photo you can do it one of two ways: you can select beautify and then smooth wrinkles and just go over the area of your face or you can go distort and select twirl and it will make your face swirly.

  60. Just Peachy says:

    Sorry I meant select twirl and then click on your face and it will make it swirly.

  61. zamgrawrz says:

    Rofl, she agreed that she should learn to replace elastic. >.<

    And MMP, your baby is adorable 🙂

  63. Sala says:

    Well, maybe a year and a baby have changed her for the better. Having kids certainly changed me and I was over 10 years older than she was when baby was born.

  64. smartassmama says:

    http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showpost.php?p=10467723&postcount=2

    Here’s your proof that she is, indeed, Erin12345. All she left out was the lawn chairs, right?

    Maverick’s egg donor even admitted last week that she had an abortion at 15, which was only a few years ago. I don’t recall how old Erin was, but she outright said she doesn’t want kids & wanted to abort.

  65. Redhead says:

    65, I want to punch her in the face.
    I think someone should Pm Maverick’s Mom and ask her if she is indeed Erin12345… I’m not the brave. Well, I think if she admitted it to me I’d get banned after giving her a piece of my mind and outing her..

  66. Redhead says:

    I’m sad. I want to get my DH a raw amber necklace for Father’s day, but everyone BUT Baltic Creations is not taking customs right now.
    I wrote 2 places on Etsy and Inspired by Finn.. they are sold out of the type of amber I want. I looked more online, but didn’t find anyone that didn’t have like a 2-3 week wait on customs.
    Would it be horrible of me to order from BalticC? Is her work shoddy?

  67. zamgrawrz says:

    No idea, I haven’t ever gotten any amber necklaces. I’m not a cool kid. lol

    And omg, I’m in love with my custom from Lollytree. I can’t wait to get it!!! My first custom ever *sniff*

  68. smartassmama says:

    I have the same sentiments for her 66.

    I cannot remember why I’m not supposed to not do business with Baltic, I just don’t. I was thinking Inspired by Finn was featured here too, but I don’t know.

    Me & both kids have them. I love the look, but they don’t seem to do a whole lot. But I’ve thought about getting onevfor DH, but might be cheaper to buy two baby ones & attach them. His neck is big. 🙂

  69. Redhead says:

    ugh. Maybe I should just order raw amber beads and make it myself.

  70. Sala says:

    I’m currently working with Happy Dance Designs on a couple pieces with gemstones for extra oomf for my kid. No idea what her wait time currently is but look her up, she’s been super flexible at incorporating my (everchanging) requests.

  71. JustMe says:

    67 – I don’t have anything of hers, but she has bought diapers from me in the past with no issues, and she just bought 4 more from me today. I didn’t hesitate to sell them to her, and I wouldn’t in the future either.

  72. žába says:

    67 – I have not had any problems with my dealings with her at all. In fact she went out of her way to do something for me. IDK, it was before the whole drama here, but she left a very positive impression on me.

  73. Redhead says:

    Ok, I might brave an order with her then. Thanks for the info!

  74. me says:

    67-Happy Dance is accepting orders and has a code for Father’s Day.

  75. Sala says:

    I’ve not had any experience with Baltic Amber but the lady is doing a coop at DS, 10-15% I think.

  76. zamgrawrz says:

    O.M.G. So freaking glad we haven’t been drinking capri sun lately.

  77. zamgrawrz says:

    Oh nm, apparently it was mold…weirdest mold I’ve EVER seen.

  78. Redhead says:

    Gross.

  79. Kirsty says:

    67- I have ordered 2 from her. She’s nice enough, I’ve received them in Canada within 2 weeks and, thus far, they seem well constructed. The discount code offered on DS makes for a decent added bonus.

  80. Just Peachy says:

    There is no way in hell that is mold. Just cus Kraft says its mold does not in fact make it mold.

  81. melmelly says:

    I have seen mold look like that after awhile. Takes time to look like that. It gets really rubbery. It was in the mini-fridge I had in my dorm room in college. The room hadn’t been used for about a month to six weeks, and the fridge had been left on at the lowest temp setting, so it was warm enough in there for stuff to grow.

  82. Redhead says:

    82, I agree. My guess is that sine the pouch was leaking, air was able to get in and grow funky mold for however long it was before the people found it.
    I’ve seen some pretty weird mold in my lifetime, used to work at a camp as kitchen staff.

  83. Redhead says:

    84, I had to say something to her.. 🙂

    and.. http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showpost.php?p=10477544&postcount=9

    ..her DH sees hot women at *school*. Notice she didn’t say “work”.. another confirmation that she is Erin12345. Where is Smartassmama to back me up on my sleuthing skillz?! 😉
    Gosh, I wanna say something to her SO bad.

  84. smartassmama says:

    When I read that I thought “he had a great paying corporate job but now he goes to school.” yep. More clues pointing at Kelsey!

    I just had her original thread up yesterday and closed it. Doh!

  85. Redhead says:

    she said on another post ( I will look for it) something about being on a site where a scammer was outed earlier in the year.. thinking DODS, maybe? I wonder if she still reads here if it was.

    If I had a fee strike left I’d message H2BAMod and ask her if she can pm that member who made Erin12345 to check on her. To see if she’s ok. Because a lot of us are concerned. We worry about the little boy (Because that part is true). I doubt she’d buy my concern though.

  96. Redhead says:

    99, I know. Or people like me (and other mama’s) who have awful pregnancies ridden with health issues. I think she is terribly insecure and co-dependent… why would someone like that even consider having more?

    Here’s more mounting evidence, by the way. I know I’ve beat the dead horse, but if any lurkers aren’t convinced – second sentence references her baby-daddy’s two kids from a previous marriage. http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showpost.php?p=10473506&postcount=2

  109. Redhead says:

    :clap clap:
    I wonder if H2BAM ever called anyone or did anything after her Erin12345 post? Unless she was just trying to cause major drama (possible) with the “pulling my hair out and beating me with a 2×4” post, someone needs to get in there and save her son.

    Have you ever seen MM say anything NICE about her child? So far, I haven’t. So sad, he is a cute little one. 😦

  110. smartassmama says:

    Anyone else have trouble following cryway903?

  111. Kristen says:

    105- IIRC, she posted in her DDC that she was leaving DS because of the drama and hypocrisy and going to CDN. Like, she flat out typed Cloth Diaper Nation…then her post was edited. I could be wrong though. I have slept since then. :err:

    I wonder if this Kelsey chick is Erin12345. That thread STILL makes my blood boil!

  112. Redhead says:

    116, I was hoping you’d see our sleuthing skills! I am almost like 110% positive she and Erin are the same.. just waiting for her to mention her DH beating her with the 2×4 or the famous lawn chair and it is the real deal.

  113. smartassmama says:

    I stand corrected. It was a camping chair. I’ll give credit where credit’s due – camping chairs are higher class. They have cupholders. Bwahahahaha

  114. Kristen says:

    I think I missed the part about the lawn chair. What was that all about?

    I lack sleuthing skills, so I bow down to your’s. lol

  115. smartassmama says:

    ‘Erin’ lived in a shit-hole apartment, has an abusive baby-daddy that she hates, doesn’t want her son, wanted to abort him, wishes she could abort him now (at 14mo), BD has 2 kids from a previous marriage, and their only furniture is a folding chair and a bed. But they have the Internet, because BD is in school. He’s in school because he lost his 100k job last year and the sonofabitch didt get a new one, he went back to school instead. And he beat her with a 2×2 one day and he drags her by the hair.

    Maverick’s “mommy” lives in a ‘bad pocket’ (wth does that mean?), hates their apt., has bad neighbors with killer dogs that the police shoot at whim.

    She admits freely to having at least aborted one baby when she was 15 (4 or 5 years ago), and says she considered it with her son.

    BD has a 5 & 6 year old with his totally horrible religious ex-wife.

    BD used to make over 120k, but he’s now in school, living off of the GI bill? I think on the last part.

    All that’s left is the beating & the camping chair. :). She’s already sold me on the big cucking funt part. 🙂

  116. Redhead says:

    her username on other sites:
    kelseyeb1986

    see that? kelsey*E*b1986

    I can’t get into her photobucket though.

  117. smartassmama says:

    Ah hah. Kelsey Erin doesn’t sound very smooth together, but it’s possible.

  118. smartassmama says:

    Found her on the “flake list.” It even lists her last name. But it’s not a “B.”

  119. zamgrawrz says:

    121-I went to my sister’s graduation last week and you’d be surprised how many of the graduates had really odd name combos. No flow at ALL.

  120. smartassmama says:

    Congrats to your sister! high school or college?

  121. smartassmama says:

    Oh, and when you find her last name, you’ll giggle at the irony.

  122. Aj says:

    Someone should start a random thread, “What’s your middle name?” 🙂

  123. redfish bluefish says:

    119-thanks for the summary! Last time I went to DS to sleuth I got a severe virus threat *no surprise there really* so I won’t be going back.

    That’s bananas!

    I’m just LOL lovin the term “trolltastic” :roflmao:

  125. zamgrawrz says:

    High school 😀 She’s my only sibling and she’s 10 years younger than me.

  126. smartassmama says:

    Congrats to her 🙂 My sister is 7 years younger, only sibling here also. She just graduated as well. she’s 18, but she’s my best friend. 😀

    Exclamation Portland Baby Needing a Milk Donor!
    [/COLOR]

    Hi Mamas! It was suggested that I come here in search of donor breast milk for my son. I had posted this on another forum, but had no luck and another mama suggested I post here so I hope this is ok:

    I’m hoping this is ok to post here, I’ve had no luck recently with milkshare and we are almost out of milk for our LO and I don’t know where else to look.

    Our son is a year old and its been a rough year of trial and error and trying to BF (turns out I have immature milk glands and was never able to produce more than an ounce…even with domperidone and all the herbs and SNS). And my son has an intolerance to a component of formula. He’s not allergic to dairy or soy (or anything normal that he’s been tested for) but there is some other thing they put in the formula that causes him to break out in a scaly, often bleeding, rash. It also constipates him severely. We’ve tried everything….goats milk formula, plain goats milk, whole milk, soy milk, hypoallergenic formulas, etc etc and the only thing he responds well to is human breast milk. He CAN tolerate small amounts of nutrimigen formula, but not in larger quantities (and the doctor is having us hold off on most solids until he’s at least 18 months!). We had a donor until recently, but her son weaned, her supply dipped, and then she had issues with tearing nipples (ouch!) so she had to stop. We SO appreciate her help though over the past months. We’ve also had a few more sporadic donors (milk here and there) but we haven’t had any donations recently and I’m getting scared. We can’t afford milk bank milk, and insurance won’t cover it. They charge like $3+ per ounce and DH is unemployed (and I was a SAHM to begin with) so while we are doing OK (he’s gone back to school on the GI bill ), milk bank milk is out of the question.

    Our son has shown NO aversions to anything in breast milk. He does fine with milk with caffeine, melatonin, chocolate, spicy foods, dairy, soy, everything.

    To be honest, I’m scared out of my mind right now. We have enough breast milk in the freezer for *maybe* another week….and that’s a big maybe. I’ve called past donors to see if they have any extra and no one does, I’m just really worried.

    If anyone can help we would be forever grateful! I am happy to provide storage bags, lansinoh cream, lactation herbs, even my pump if you need it!!!! I will of course pick up as well! We are totally fine with taking milk that’s been frozen for a while (even if its a bit over a year old…that’s ok we will try it!!!). Please email me if you or anyone you know can help our little guy!!!

    I will go ANYWHERE in the Portland/Vancouver/Beaverton/Gresham areas to pick up and we can pick up as far north as Longview this weekend!

    Thanks for reading mamas, keep us in your thoughts!

    Oh lordy, if you are fine with milk that’s been frozen for more than a few months… PM me. I’m in SE, and I have a stash that my picky son never used. The boy wouldn’t take a bottle to save his own life!

    I would be glad to help. I have a 9 month old, and my supply is decent. Let me break out my pump and see what I can get for you. I also have some frozen – not much, but some – that you are welcome to. We live in Gresham – PM me for details.

    How are things working out for you? I don’t know for sure that I can help but I can definitely try if you still need it. I’m in Eugene but drive to Portland at least a couple times a month.

    Subscribing to the thread for future reference. I am having my surro son in the next 1-2 weeks, still waiting on his parents to decide if they want the milk I’ll be pumping. If not, I have another family lined up but if I have an oversupply like last time (100 oz a day) then I should have some to give you.

    The only thing I’d prefer is to be reimbursed for the bags if possible. But if not, we can figure something out. I’ll keep this thread in mind once I find out who is/is not taking my milk and see how my supply is doing.

    Bumping as we are still in need of milk!!

    Abra, I PM’ed you. FWIW, Abra was a donor for us. She used my pump, my bags, etc and when it came time for me to pick up I went outside and my car had been stolen (yes, I have the police records to prove this). With the drama of dealing with the police and finding vin #’s, insurance info, etc I forgot to call Abra and tell her I wasn’t going to make it (my mistake) and she took this as an opportunity to decide we couldn’t have her milk anymore (which, she had already told me she was stopping pumping soon anyway due to the holidays…which turned out to be a lie, she had just found another baby to pump for, her choice but no need to lie). I apologized profusely for not calling, it had just totally slipped my mind with everything going on with my car being stolen, but Abra didn’t care.

    I have no hard feelings, at all, whatsoever, and I thank her for the milk she provided my son, but for her to come on here and make it sound like I did something awful (and who knows what she’s telling people via PM) is just wrong. I am so sorry that I forgot to call you and tell you what was going on, I have apologized before and I will say it again, but its really time to let it go…its been months (it was last November). I’ve moved on and I don’t expect milk from you even though you used my pump to pump milk for another donor baby, let it go.

    Even if I HAD done something horrible should MY son suffer the consequences of that?

    Anyone who might be interested in donating I am HAPPY to show you the police report from that day as well as emails between me and Abra so you can make your own call about my character. I messed up and forgot to call her, it wasn’t something I should have done, but accidents happen, especially in times of stress and if that’s the worst thing I ever do I am glad of that KWIM? I am also happy to provide references from other ladies who have donated to our son who can vouch for me.

    You guys are hilarious! I just stumbled upon this site from a search and its crazy to me that not only do you all have the time to apparently raise your children, but also scout things out on diaperswappers THEN come onto this blog and chitchat about it.

    A quick google search on her found her livejournal from HS. It makes my head hurt. Nobody should let their high school thoughts be on the web for all to see once they are firmly in their 20’s. If I found out that mine were, I would die of embarrassment. lol

    Also, according to that LJ, though her middle initials ARE E.B. they do not stand for Erin Beth.

    Yep! I’m so proud of her, she’s headed off to a 4 year university next fall. I’ll miss her though 😦

  137. smartassmama says:

    Mine is too. One town over 🙂 She’s going to live at home since her scholarships *just* cover her tuition.
    I actually mulled over the idea of going back to school this year. I’d basically be starting over. She’s (currently) majoring in Education, wanting to be a high school math teacher. If I were to go back, it would be for English Ed (I *think*), so we might even have some of the same classes! But my son is super clingy and I know I wouldn’t devote the time to it.

  138. smartassmama says:

    Did you know that there is a Kelseyeb1986 on DS? 😉

    He’s off to university in September as well.

    We live near Seattle so its about 3k miles, give or take. Somehow I think that plane ride is going to be a lot more annoying with a 15 month old instead of a 4 month old…

    Subscribing to the thread for future reference. I am having my surro son in the next 1-2 weeks, still waiting on his parents to decide if they want the milk I’ll be pumping. If not, I have another family lined up but if I have an oversupply like last time (100 oz a day) then I should have some to give you.

    The only thing I’d prefer is to be reimbursed for the bags if possible. But if not, we can figure something out. I’ll keep this thread in mind once I find out who is/is not taking my milk and see how my supply is doing.

    Bumping as we are still in need of milk!!

    Abra, I PM’ed you. FWIW, Abra was a donor for us. She used my pump, my bags, etc and when it came time for me to pick up I went outside and my car had been stolen (yes, I have the police records to prove this). With the drama of dealing with the police and finding vin #’s, insurance info, etc I forgot to call Abra and tell her I wasn’t going to make it (my mistake) and she took this as an opportunity to decide we couldn’t have her milk anymore (which, she had already told me she was stopping pumping soon anyway due to the holidays…which turned out to be a lie, she had just found another baby to pump for, her choice but no need to lie). I apologized profusely for not calling, it had just totally slipped my mind with everything going on with my car being stolen, but Abra didn’t care.

    I have no hard feelings, at all, whatsoever, and I thank her for the milk she provided my son, but for her to come on here and make it sound like I did something awful (and who knows what she’s telling people via PM) is just wrong. I am so sorry that I forgot to call you and tell you what was going on, I have apologized before and I will say it again, but its really time to let it go…its been months (it was last November). I’ve moved on and I don’t expect milk from you even though you used my pump to pump milk for another donor baby, let it go.

    Even if I HAD done something horrible should MY son suffer the consequences of that?

    Anyone who might be interested in donating I am HAPPY to show you the police report from that day as well as emails between me and Abra so you can make your own call about my character. I messed up and forgot to call her, it wasn’t something I should have done, but accidents happen, especially in times of stress and if that’s the worst thing I ever do I am glad of that KWIM? I am also happy to provide references from other ladies who have donated to our son who can vouch for me.

    Wow thats jacked up but I really don’t think those two are the same person. This kelseyeb sounds a bit more eloquent in her wording as opposed to Mav’sMom. But I could be wrong.

  148. Pork Slapper says:

    They may not be, but the mothering.com mom lives in Beaverton, which is thisclose to Portland. That, and their boys are the same age (14 months now, but 12 months in April).

    And a copy & paste of the orginal post
    Question WDYD?? FFS Item came and it was NASTY
    Ok a very sweet momma posted an article of clothing for nursing mommas that was in my size (a rare occasion) & we are totally broke so I jumped at the chance. THe item came as described except she never mentioned that it was NASTY. I opened up the mailbox and was almost knocked over by the stench coming from the package. The package REAKED of Body Odor and I mean REAKED. I mean I am a big busted gal so I know that tops etc can get kind of smelly, but this thing smelled sooooooo incredibly bad that I don’t think it had EVER been washed (it would take way more than one serious work out to get it smelling that bad). I washed it and it still smelled although not nearly as bad as before, so I had to soak it in vinegar and oxyclean and it was a little better but still had a faint stench to it so I washed it one more time in VERY hot water and that did the trick. I am very happy to have the item now that it is clean, but how disgusting for someone to send something that gross. I know it was FFS, but come on now… I would NEVER take dirty smelly clothes to goodwill and that it is pretty crappy to do something like that. Am I wrong here??? What should I do about feedback??? I am thinking neutral and explaining WHY… and I am new to DS so I am afraid of her giving me bad feedback in retaliation and not getting people to be willing to buy or sell to me. What should I do???

    Maverick’s mommy chimes in at post #27

  151. BabyBrain says:

    MM always has something to say about everything. She is seriously getting on my last nerve.

  152. BabyBrain says:

    152 – yeah, people are getting all bent out of shape over that one, huh?

  153. Just Peachy says:

    Ya its ok to send something out that could possibly make someone barf just because its free. My do not BST list just got exponentially bigger.

  154. BabyBrain says:

    156 – my thoughts exactly. And if I pay shipping costs, then I PAID for it, so its not exctly FREE at that point.

  155. zamgrawrz says:

    I think its the same person…she even says in the first post her dh is in school on the GI bill. Hasn’t MM said that more than once in her posts?

    Though I don’t understand why you’d make a new UN to do ask for milk…kinda odd. Maybe she knows a lot of people don’t like her? 😛

  156. smartassmama says:

    I thought the milk thing was a different site?

  157. Redhead says:

    Mav’sMama posted her photobucket acct on DS and the user name is Kelseyeb1986.. same person.

  158. Redhead says:

    According to MM, I can mail poopy diapers to another mama FFS because, after all, the other mama can wash it and it was free.
    Please.

    And I think we should write “Abra” and see what really happened with the milk share deal.

  159. noisybean says:

    Ya. Same person. check out MM’s siggy.

    Kelsey!! Mama to Maverick born 04/05/09, a cloth diapering, but otherwise not THAT green kind of mommy http://www.swagbucks.com/refer/kelseyeb1986

  160. BabyBrain says:

    161 – According to half of the replies on there, if you receive poopy FFS dipes, you should be grateful, wash em up 116 times, and leave no less than positive feedback. And don’t even think about posting in T&F, that’s for “real” transactions.

  161. Redhead says:

    162, LOL.. I noticed!

    Maybe it is just me.. but does this mama seem a bit … um,
    “not-mommyish”? I mean, making out with your drunk “gay” friend? I’ve seen some other things from her that made me raise an eyebrow or two.. wonder how much of this is exposed to her children?

    http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showpost.php?p=10493558&postcount=6

  162. Just Peachy says:

    Ahhhh I wondered where KE disappeared to. She’s been off the radar for a while now. WOOT for making out with drunk gay friends *sarcasm*

  163. sourpatchbabe says:

    I’ve never even thought of making out with a friend. Wouldn’t that negate the friend part and upgrade the person to a boy/girlfriend or a bedbuddy status?

  164. that_girl (AKA LMAO) says:

    Kaleidescope is just…off. There’s always been something a bit creepy to me about her. Anyone else?

  165. that_girl (AKA LMAO) says:

    …and if this gay guy makes out with girls wouldn’t that make him bi, not gay? I don’t know any gay guys who make out with women.

  166. zamgrawrz says:

    How can you call a friend *gay* if they’ve made out with you? Unless he’s actually bi. Or you’re actually a male. *DUN DUN DUN*

  167. Redhead says:

    Hahahahahhaa!!!

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

    #147 – i totally just clicked on that randomly on ds, just b/c it says delete. what a shit storm. and i DO limit my kids’ exposure to religion, but really, she had to know that was going to cause an uproar. and then crunch posting in the thread…classic. I’m so glad the op was quoted. was the quoting the work of someone here?

  169. Redhead says:

    Oh, I am sure she did it on purpose. I think she is quite the troll who loves to start drama.

  170. BabyBrain says:

    So yeah, I see Kaleidoscope chick has all those *illegal* links in her siggy. That fries me because I got “warned” today for my signature….conveniently after I disagreed with someone. Same signature I’ve had for 9 months.

  171. BabyBrain says:

    168 – thats because she’s a trolltastic (LOVE that word) drama whore.

  172. zamgrawrz says:

    173-I don’t think shes from here, but I could be wrong. I met her irl though, she was my nurse when I was stuck in the hospital with my last. She was super nice and gave me someone to talk about woolies with, lol.

  173. Redhead says:

    175, report her?

  174. zamgrawrz says:

    This is killing me, I need one more feedback before I can see coops. I need to find something else to FFS, rofl.

  175. BabyBrain says:

    179 – be sure and choose someone who will actually leave feedback. ooohhh me! lol Just as long as it’s not poopy and doesn’t have bad BO…. ’cause then I’d have to ask the wise hens in T&F what to write first.

  176. BabyBrain says:

    Redhead – I already reported like 5 people today for siggy violations after I got my “warning”. Petty, I know…but I feel better now. Figured I’d give keep the mods busy.

  177. BabyBrain says:

    I’m just bitter about this signature thing. I liked my old siggy…I miss it. It wasn’t bad..just about my kids and stuff. *sniff*

  178. smartassmama says:

    What was in it that was so bad?

  179. BabyBrain says:

    Mine? Nothing. It was more than 4 lines. My bad though – I thought the limit was 6.

  180. Redhead says:

    I thought it was 6 too? I have seen MODS with 6 lines! Going to look again..

  181. MamaE says:

    Okay, I’ve never posted here before (major lurker, though – this site is great!!), but I saw the whole reference to the Kelsey/milk donation and thought I’d chime in. On Mothering.com Kelsey posted a post asking for milk donation for her son and I responded, telling her that I’d be happy to try to help. Shortly after that I received a PM from “Abra” and this is what it said:

    Hello.

    I have noticed that you’ve offered to donate milk to Kelsey..

    I was one of the donors that Kelsey is referring to, only her story is a complete lie. I did not wean my child, nor did any of the other donors that she’s had (and I’ve known of 2). I stopped donated to her because she was flaky, dramatic and totally unreliable. I personally know one of the other donors and her stories don’t match up at all. Her reasons for not breastfeeding are all over the place, the reasons she doesn’t call you back for a week or two at a time are outlandish. I really wouldn’t bother trying to help her, she won’t take your time seriously. I dedicated months to pumping and donating to her and she treated the whole thing with utter disrespect and lies.

    This is a very small community of people in the Portland area and I keep running into her through the grape-vine. I don’t know how she thinks she can get away with making up countless lies.

    Thanks, Abra

    ……..
    Based on that, I chose not to donate. 🙂 I was selling a new diaper on DS, and I sold it very quickly. MM pmed me telling me how bummed she was that I sold the diaper already, because she really wanted it and would have met me locally to pick it up. Honestly, I was glad that I had already sold it because she doesn’t seem like the type of Mama I really want to meet up with. Funny that MM and Kelsey are the same Mama…

  182. Just Peachy says:

    It depends which browser you are viewing in and I thought the limit was 5 lines?

  183. zamgrawrz says:

    Hmmm…want some yarn? 😛 I was just going to post it in FFS but I’d rather it go to someone I’ve at least chatted with, lol.

    That’s whats annoying too, I’d have 13 feedback if everyone left it…but no…

  184. smartassmama says:

    I’ve got some medium FBs! lol They aren’t FFS (yet), but I’d leave some smashing feedback. :giggle:

  185. Redhead says:

    I want some yarn! PM me on DS, you know who I am, right?

  186. treeindawind says:

    and I want some M fb’s 😉 lol

  187. Just Peachy says:

    *perk* yarn?

  188. sourpatchbabe says:

    187, I know what you mean. If everyone that I did a transaction with had left me FB, I would have closer to 100. But alas, some people won’t leave you FB even after you leave them theirs and send them PM reminders. Makes me want to hit them over the head with a 2×4 with a rusty nail coming out of it.

  189. BabyBrain says:

    I know the feedback thing irks me, too. I would have twice as many if people would just leave feedback. I send PMs after I leave it and ask them to do the same…and nothing…

  190. BabyBrain says:

    185 and 186 – It’s 4 lines, 6 images. I swear it used to be 6…I remember when making my siggy months ago, it would tell me it was too long over 6 lines.
    I think they changed it and just didnt tell us.

  191. Redhead says:

    194, when I joined, it was 4 lines. Then it became 6- I agree with you. I never changed mine to 6- but I saw mods/other members who had it that way & checked the info page on siggy’s, it said 6 then.
    I think they DID change it back recently without letting us know.

  192. Redhead says:

    One mom bugged me to leave her FB before she received her items, I always wait until afterwards in case they aren’t happy and turn out to be bad buyers.. haha. Anyway, she kept begging and begging, promising to leave me FB as soon as the items arrived so I went ahead and left her +… never heard another word from her after. 😦

  193. zamgrawrz says:

    Medium FB’s you say? Not that I really NEED them…I think I have around 30 pockets. For one baby. I went a little overboard.

    I’ll send ya a PM Redhead 😀

  194. Redhead says:

    Why isn’t Kimb96 on my block list? I know I added her there before. Back she goes.

  195. sciencefair says:

    Yeah, she isn’t the only one. BUt come one, I rarely get FFS items and I will never buy one from her. If it isn’t a real transaction we should just sent the money as personal not GOODS on paypal. Sad.

  196. sciencefair says:

    198 – Oh man, I just read some of her posts…what a fruit loop

  197. amessymama says:

    What’s with the chick comparing BO to perfume? I may not like many perfumes, but I do prefer them over pit stench.

    Kimb96 has always bugged the crap outta me! I don’t think she even agrees with herself half the time. She’s just argumentative and post the opposite of the OP all the time.

    I wish I could list some stuff FFS and only sell to those who think, “it’s free, it doesn’t matter”. I could have some fun with that. 😀

  198. Redhead says:

    201, I think she is going on the block list too.

    Now, someone needs to make a FFS listing for some yummy poopy diapers. Hey, they are free– come & get ’em!

  199. amessymama says:

    Originally posted by munchkinflame##:

    “Truthfully, we don’t know if it was funky smell or BO. All we know is that the OP had to wash it 3 times to get the smell out. I’ve had dipes that I had to strip 2-3 times after the initial wash because they smelled funky. They weren’t “dirty” just needed to be stripped, but they definately didn’t smell good. . . not good enough to go on my kiddo’s bum. It could easily be from the smell of the seller’s house or from sitting in a mail truck, as other posters have mentioned. Only the OP can judge what type of smell it was, but really no one will ever know for sure. . . Just an observation.”

    Can someone please tell her that we do know it is BO, because the OP said it was BO.

    What is she even trying to say in this post anyway? I guess she felt obligated to add something, relevant or not.

  200. amessymama says:

    Is munchkinflame13 the sister of someone whom she has defended before without disclosing their relationship? Hmmmm.

  201. BabyBrain says:

    The people on that FFS thread are seriously jacked up. Condition should always be disclosed, FFS or not….so I can decide if I want to spend my DHs hard earned money on shipping for them to mail me something nasty. Again I say, if I PAID shipping, then it’s not free.

  202. It's A Snap AKA BanHammer/ misfitmom@gmail.com says:

    Been missin’ you girls…..lol

  203. zamgrawrz says:

    I’d be very annoyed if I got something like that…I mean, paying for shipping is one thing, but I don’t have a washer and dryer so washing something that smells terrible repeatedly is expensive. But regardless, people should be honest. I could see her not realizing it stunk I guess, but I sure as heck can tell when I smell funky….

  204. Redhead says:

    BO grosses me out something fierce. I know people all smell differently, but man.. take a shower and wash your clothes on hot with vinegar or DO something before you subject me to your “stink of the day”.
    I can tolerate stinky diapers (not crusty poop ones, though).. but I can’t stand adult smells. Just.. ewwww.

  205. Flat Stainley says:

    Some of the people in that FFS thread make me want to list a homemade diaper sprayer FFS. They’ll be scratching their heads when they get a squeezable ketchup bottle in the mail with instructions to fill with water and use as needed, lol.

  206. Redhead says:

    212- that is the funniest thing I have read all day! rofl

  207. Just Peachy says:

    Ugh snatch go fall in a hole or something already!

  208. Flat Stainley says:

    213- Which snatch? Where?

  209. Redhead says:

    214— 208.

  210. Redhead says:

    186, I just noticed your post. Thanks for the info. Did you see the post by “Erin12345” that we think is ALSO Kelsey/MM?

  211. zamgrawrz says:

    I hadn’t noticed either…isn’t it against the rules to have more than one UN? Couldn’t one potentially report it? <.<

    And yeah, you have to be really careful donating sadly. I offered up my milk years ago with my 2nd and the person who came to pick it up was a guy, acted REALLY weird, and on the whole kinda creeped me out. So now I just keep it all for myself. I'm greedy like that. *nod*

  212. zamgrawrz says:

    Er…for my baby, not me. I’m not into drinking breastmilk, my own or others. lol.

  213. Redhead says:

    I just PMed Abra on mothering.com. Hoping she will chime in with more info.

  214. Flat Stainley says:

    217-You don’t think that guy was a fetishist for breastmilk do you? That would totally creep me out!
    I was hard up for cash once, and so I listed my lot of Herotica books on CL. This guy answered saying his wife would really like them. I met him in a public place and he was like “so did you find these to be a satisfying read?” I avoided eye contact and said “I don’t know, I never had time to read them.” Which, was of course a lie, but WTF! As if I’d tell some stranger how I enjoyed reading erotica books for ladies. I basically grabbed the money and ran, lol.

  215. BabyBrain says:

    218 – lmao

  216. Kimbella says:

    Speaking as a mom who has a son with severe food allergies, MM/Kelsey/Erin’s formula issues don’t seem to add up.

    She didn’t mention trying elemental forumulas (Neocate or Elecare). It is very, very, very rare for a child to be unable to tolerate those formulas, especially both of them.

    Food allergies that cause digestive issues like she described usually do not give positives during allergy testing. (I can go into an explanation as to why if anyone is interested.)

    If her son tried and really could not tolerate either of those two elemental forumulas, then he should be under specialized care of a pediatric gastro doctor.

    The whole story just doesn’t add up at all.

  217. Redhead says:

    Captain Obvious rides again.

  218. Redhead says:

    My captain obvious post was for 222. 🙂

    223- Apparently, MM/Kelsey/Erin lies about many things. Maybe the whole “beats me with a 2×4” story was fake, too.
    Wonder why she needed BM then.. this gets weirder and weirder!

  219. sourpatchbabe says:

    223, What I don’t understand is if a child has such severe allergy problems that they HAVE to have BM, why doesn’t the donor’s diet affect the child? I mean, when a child has lactose intolerance the mother usually avoids dairy so that the child doesn’t get it through the milk.. But the child does well with milk with caffeine, melatonin, spicy foods, soy. I kept waiting for her to put pot, coke, heroin in the list.

  221. amessymama says:

    I may have read her post wrong, but didn’t she say her DS could drink regular milk?

    Umm, give him milk.

  226. smartassmama says:

    Wow. They actually deleted her “delete” thread? lol

    O/T – saw this, thought of DS – http://www.nerdyshirts.com/magic-unicorn-t-shirt

    And she is a big ole liar. Someone recently emailed her on facebook, asked her if she’s Kelsey, and she denied.

  227. Redhead says:

    232, she has a FB? Need addy!

  228. Redhead says:

    I think someone should email a Mod, say something like this..

    “Just wanted to send a quick note reporting that Maverick’s Mama has 2 other UNs. Kelseybe1986 and, of course, Erin12345. Was wondering if this was allowed? Thanks XOXOX”

  229. Redhead says:

    *kelseyeb1986.. I mean.

  230. Flat Stainley says:

    love the xoxox, btw. That should work. Hehe

  231. smartassmama says:

    Yeah, that will not be me. I pm’d Harmony about Crotch/Tessa, and was thanked. Then H2BAMod stepped in and nothing was done. Somehow I don’t think it would matter if I emailed a soul.

  232. MamaE says:

    On Mothering.com Kelsey’s name is happy_mama_1983 and this is her public profile:

    If she was born in 1983, then she’d be 26, correct? Not 24? But anyway…

  233. Redhead says:

    My comment is in moderation because of all the links I posted..
    But anyway, looks like ol’ Kelsey’s stories are about to start catching up with her.

  234. Just Peachy says:

    She’d be 27 dependent on when her bday is.
    I hope they drop the ban on her because it would be nice to return to DS without having the trolls tempt me.

  235. smartassmama says:

    When do you return? 🙂

  236. Flat Stainley says:

    Redhead, you just made my day! I saw that bitchtastic Steph Reynolds has been banned. Off to see if I can find out why. :gleefully kicks heels together:

  237. Flat Stainley says:

    Aha, just as I suspected. “Banned for disrespecting the admin team, and multiple reports for being rude to members” She is such a biotch. I could not stand looking at her ugly Avi pic. Every time I saw it I wanted to gouge my screen with an ice pick.

  238. smartassmama says:

    Oh now it’s obvious.

    She signed up as Kelseyeb1986 while PG. Bought diapers.
    BD’s 2×4 talked her out of CDing, so she lists them fsot.
    Changes her mind about selling, so she abandons her account.
    Signs up as Maverick’s Mommy.
    Either has a real issue or noticed there wasn’t enough drama, so she signs up as Erin12345.

  239. smartassmama says:

    What was her avi pic? Name rings no bells.

  240. Flat Stainley says:

    It was her in a burgundy shirt. Blonde hair, taking a picture of herself, slightly looking up and sneering. I think she had slightly dark roots, IIRC.

  241. Flat Stainley says:

    247- BD’s 2×4 talked her out of CDing, ROFLMAO!

  242. Just Peachy says:

    I return the 29th. Trolls beware MWAHAHAHAHA!

  243. Redhead says:

    249..Oh, HER! Yay!
    Yeah, she was the one who wanted to start a diaper-gang and would always say “yeah, bye now!” to everyone who disagreed with her. :barf:

  244. Redhead says:

    247, I am guessing she noticed there wasn’t enough drama, because even H2BAM said in that thread something like “I can’t say for certain if this mama posted to start drama or not”..or something similar. So, I think H2BAM knew something more.

    Judging from the mothering.com issues.. Kelsey is just a total drama slut.

  245. Flat Stainley says:

    252, that was her. :barf:-My sentiments exactly! I went searching to see what it was that got under my skin and I couldn’t find it anywhere. I guess I can be grateful that the mods wiped up her verbal diarreha, even if it was only type-written crap, it still stunk.

  246. smartassmama says:

    Surprisingly, I don’t think I ever encountered her. She must have stuck to the parts of the board that I find confusing, or intimidating.

  247. Redhead says:

    She hung out in the FG threads.

  248. Flat Stainley says:

    She was posting on the FG threads alot. She was a real charm to chat with. Some of her posts are still there, but the majority were flushed with her crap attacks.

  249. smartassmama says:

    I never even read about FG. I tend to flake on fads.

  250. smartassmama says:

    By that I mean, I will read about it, get psyched to do it, then forget a few days later.

    What do you ladies think? is this a dig? post #8? she gets free woolies (4 from this mama) and buys new diapers…I think it’s a veiled dig, but I can’t always tell the obvious…
    http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1008928
    Can’t believe she got burned once, them turned around and did it again. who puts up diaper laundry, or any laundry, at night anyways???eh.

  255. sourpatchbabe says:

    Yeah, I mean that poster mentioned 5 definite woolies that this mama got not counting all the others she got last time. Even if those woolies were $20 apiece (doubtful) that’s $100 worth of woolies that she got for free off of this mama alone. What is she going to ask for now, crankypants?

  256. sourpatchbabe says:

    I think she posted that so that if a kind mama thinks to send masja some diapers/woolies she will know in advance that it’s not the first time she’s gotten freebies. Because you know someone was eventually going to post offering her some diapers that they didn’t need. Although I can’t really say anything since I don’t know masja at all. For all I know she could really have tons of bad luck.

    And I used to put my laundry out at night. The kids and I wake up late 9:30am is not unusual for us to still be abed (today I woke up at 9:50 and The Kid was still snoring at 10:20). By the time that I’d be fully functional and ready to hang the clothes the day would be half over.

  257. BabyBrain says:

    265 – Yeah, either that mama has really bad luck or karma after her – or she’s fishing for more freebies.

    I have a big box of dipes I wanna put up on a FFS lotto, but havent yet. I want them to go to a mama who needs them, not one of those greedy, trolltastic mamas. I see the same people over and over getting stuff on FFS. Maybe you drama mamas could stalk my FFS lotto and tell me who NOT to send them to. lol

  258. BabyBrain says:

    I’ve also left dipes on the line overnight. But my two big outside dogs would let me know if anyone came to steal them..he he

  259. angelique says:

    Maybe I am a big meanie but I don’t send out free stuff to other mamas especially when they post hinting that they need stuff. (I do post FFS or offer to specific mamas that I know are honest). Who are these mamas sending people $100 in woolies??? Why do I not know them? hee hee

    Ooo what kinda diapers? lol, I think I have a problem. (I DON’T NEED DIAPERS…though I wish I’d magically find some fitteds or PF’s somewhere, my DD’s bum feels so friggin hot in pockets all the time :()

    Anyway, yeah-its scary when I list FFS stuff how fast it goes. Its like literally within 30 seconds, I have 20+ PM’s. How many people just sit there hitting refresh on the FFS page?! I mean, I’m broke, I sit at the computer at least a chunk of the day out of boredom, but I don’t stalk FFS. I actually gave up on getting anything from there because of the people who do….

  264. petuniafarts says:

    Hmmm…seems kinda odd that a rl friend suddenly appears in her thread after she gets called out on having gotten all those free woolies…is it just me?

    Also, Redhead-you do NOT want our rain. Trust me. WTB SOME FRIGGIN SUN! Its mid June and its still around 50 degrees most of the time 😦 I hate it. Though I’m sure I’ll be happy to be back after our trip…from what family has been telling us, its been in the 90’s in SC.

    Wow….That’s crazy! She’s definitely not infertile…she’s had 3 kids in as many years, she’s got a baby still, and she wants twins? Seriously…I think I’d rather have two more singletons than a twin pregnancy, especially with a scarred uterus like that.

    That and most docs would recommend at least 2 years between births after multiple cesareans. I know mine told me that 2 years would be the bare minimum he’d recommend and longer would be better. I don’t know how much it helps but I’d rather give it some time than taking the risk.

  276. amessymama says:

    yup every ones supposed to feel sorry for her, she’s been trying to conceive practically since her youngest was born, poor thing….Oh and IVF is too spendy but twins isn’t (on top of her other three) Def trolltastic (great word, I’m loving it btw)

  278. zamgrawrz says:

    Even IVF wouldn’t guarantee multiples anyway…I’m incredibly fertile, most of my kids were oops and conceived with some sort of BC and I had IVF once. They put in 6 embryos, 3 stuck, only 1 grew. They said its very common. I don’t think my body likes having more than one in there (I also conceived twins naturally and the 2nd stopped growing).

  279. mamaton says:

    Wow, maybe she needs to ttc for 2+ years before she can say she’s “infertile”, which dh and I did, 31 months to be exact, and then meds were the only way that I did get pregnant. I don’t know how long it’s gonna take us when we start ttc #2 in a few months, but if it’s 9-10 months…that’s not “infertile”-especially since she’s got 3 kids in 3 years and still one’s not even a year old yet… trolltastic (giggle) seems to be a great fit for that thread. 🙂

  280. Redhead says:

    287, we’re going to TTC conceive in a few months too. Maybe we will be in the same due date forum later.. ? 😉

    288- good possibility.

  282. Redhead says:

    Ok, I asked permission from Abra to post her email to me, this was her response when I was trying to find more info on Kelsey/MM/Erin:

    After dealing with this woman this kind of email doesn’t surprise me at all. I never had any suspicion of abuse, but just about everything else in her life seemed crazier than a soap opera. I donated milk to her for 3 months and eventually stopped because she was erratic and completely disrespectful of my time. Not only that but she told me lie after lie, most of which were confirmed later by other women I met. The MILKSHARE group is a small community and it seems that many of the women know eachother. Donating my precious breastmilk to a grateful, balanced person was important to me.

    I used to have her personal email address and phone number, perhaps it’s still in my email archives if you feel you need it to report her. I have met both her and her son in person and could identify them.

    I did just semi read through that entire blog that you linked me. It seems that it could be her posts. They’re just as crazy and outlandish as the stories that she told me. While I knew her she had a job, lost a job, her husband had a job and lost a job, they moved, her baby got poisoned by formula, her car got stolen, she lost at least 2 phones, etc, etc..

    If there’s anything specific that you think I can add or if you have any questions please let me know.

  283. Redhead says:

    I replied, telling her the similarities we found with Erin & Mav’s Mama, and asking if she ever suspected abuse. I also mentioned that Kelsey’s “my baby can’t drink formula” story didn’t add up, so we were curious why she needed the BM then if it was true that her son wasn’t allergic. This is her 2nd response:

    “I must say that the only thing that stayed consistent in Kelsey’s story was that her son was allergic to formula (broke out in a terrible rash) and needed the breastmilk to be healthy. Pretty much everything else changed around a bit from person to person that she met and dealt with. Now, I have no idea if it’s true or not, I never saw a rash on her baby. In fact most of the time she left her baby crying in the car (a newer Mustang) when she came to pick up the milk. The only thing I can think of is that she’s looking for free food for her baby, who knows..

    This whole story wouldn’t surprise me at all if it were at least partially true. Kelsey is morbidly obese, hardly talked when she came over, seemed to have very low self esteem, etc. If anyone was going to be a candidate for picking an abuser it would be her.

    If what she said was true it would wonderful to try to get her child taken away. However, from my experience it’s a lot harder than it sounds. I tried to have a baby taken away from a man once (neighbor) for violence, etc.. CPS came out and did nothing. The issue is that there simply aren’t enough foster families to take these kids in, so it has to be VERY serious. I really wish the best for this little baby.”

    She also forwarded me her last email from Kelsey where Kelsey is trying to explain why she flaked so many times.

  284. melmelly says:

    I had a RL “friend” that was “so infertile”, she needed to go on meds to get pregnant. She was such a liar, too! She told the doc that she had been trying to get pregnant for at least a year, but it had only been 4-6 months. Doc put her on meds and was pregnant within 6 weeks. I found out I was pregnant (no meds) before her, and she threw a shitfit! I had been trying for about a year at that point, but it was my second pregnancy. She got so mad at me when she asked, and I told her, what our name choices were for a boy and a girl. She threw a temper tantrum in her driveway because THAT WAS HER GIRL NAME, and I couldn’t use it! Oh puh-lease, honey!

    She felt it was some sort of a competition, and still does. Her son ended up being 6 weeks early, and was in the NICU for almost a month. He will be 4 in August, and can hardly talk, amongst other things. I found out last weekend that she is putting him in kindergarten Fall 2011. That’s okay for when his bday is, but developmentally, he is even behind those born around her actual due date. It’s sad for the boy because she is pushing him so hard. She was miraculously able to conceive her daughter without meds (!!!) when her DS was 6 months old. *eyeroll* Yes, she was so infertile!

    People like her piss me off because of the many people who try and can’t. I worked with a woman that used her life savings to get pregnant. Many IVF procedures that didn’t work, different meds, etc. Finally, she tried a drug not approved to help women get pregnant, and was pregnant within two weeks. She had PCOS.

  285. Redhead says:

    Sadly, I have a family member who is morbidly obese- as is her husband (meaning, their combined weight is 1100lbs– or more). She was always complaining to me about how I got pregnant “so easily” and she couldn’t because she “just wasn’t able”… and how unfair it was for me to tell family I was preggers when she wasn’t. :/
    She ended up finding a doc who used IVF to conceive their son (2 yrs ago), and then their daughter is due in a couple of months via the same method.
    I think that, if she would just exercise and eat healthy meals (they eat out ALL of their meals @ Buffalo wild wings) that she could shed some of her weight and they could actually try naturally to make a baby. But right now.. I think the 2 of them in 1 bed would break the bed… besides, he probably can’t even find where to “put” it for their “sexytime” at the moment. :/

  286. MamaE says:

    I remember MM saying in one of her posts that she was a ‘big girl’. She sounds like a real winner – we’re from the same area so maybe I should arrange a playdate for our kids. Oh, um…maybe not!!

  289. smartassmama says:

    Wow. Just when I’m feeling bad about my fatass. . .at least the two of us are 3 digits.

    I have a friend who’s been trying to get pregnant for 3 or 4 years. I feel really bad for her and her husband. They’re sweet people, would do anything for a LO, she and her mom were like stand-in mom & grandmother to her irresponsible best friend’s little girl for years. It might help if she quit smoking, but I’m not an expert. When I got pregnant with DS (6mo PP surprise baby) I felt so bad telling her. We’d thought for 2 years that we were infertile, and then I get pregnant twice. I was afraid she’d have the reaction you’re talking about.

  290. Redhead says:

    294, you should go spying for us! See if her son needs us to call CPS.

    I hate not knowing if he is “OK” or not. 😦 I hope her stories were just trolling.. so much.

  291. BabyBrain says:

    284 – yeah, they have 3 kids already, TTC for #4, she wants twins, but her DH is opposed to a big family. *scratching head*

    Yeah. 22. Hurry up! You’ll dry up at 24! :eyesrollout: My mom has two high school friends (45) whose kids are closer in age to mine. One starts K this year and the others’ is 4. Meanwhile my mom’s youngest will be a college freshman. 23 isn’t the end of the world.

  294. mamaton says:

    293- it’s sad that she knows (and believe me she does) how unhealthy she is (bww is horrible food btw) and quite selfish to bring 2 kids into a house with obese parents, because the facts stand that obese people don’t have as long of a life expectancy as “normal” people. I’m not saying that she’s gonna die soon or anything but if she doesn’t make some changes it is quite possible for her kids to lose one or both of their parents early in life due to health problems that the obese incur. It’s something that can totally be changed with diet and exercise. Heck, it doesn’t even have to be high impact, something as simple as walking around the block once or twice can make a difference in someone that’s really overweight.

  295. BabyBrain says:

    271 – the FFS kind of diapers. lol
    Seriously, some are girlish/gn fitteds…like medium and largish..although I think they’re supposed to be OS. Definitely usable and in good shape.

  296. sourpatchbabe says:

    301, the only thing that scared the beejezus out of me in wanting to wait was ending up waiting too long only to find out I couldn’t have any kids without ART. My thought was if I started early and found out I couldn’t, at least I would still have plenty of years where my eggs would be “fresh” to TTC.

  297. BabyBrain says:

    294 – oh come on, MM seems like someone I’d love to have my kids around….

  298. mamaton says:

    I’m not saying that I’m the skinny b*tch by any means- I hope my post didn’t come off like that- I’m fluffy- not obese but am proactively doing things to change that. I don’t want my kids to be picked on at school because they have a “fat mommy”.

  299. smartassmama says:

    300. Yep. I always joke that we have 4 seasons: hot, really hot, really effin hot, and Christmas.

    And isn’t it generally not smart to ‘trap’ a person into a family he doesn’t desire? Like, if he didn’t want kids, it wouldn’t be wise to conceive against his will. I’m curious to see her response.

    298. I do too. It makes me wonder, if she doesn’t even like the boy, why does she care to seek out breastmilk? So I really hope it was just trolly. If so, she still deserves a good old fashioned ass whippin.

  300. sourpatchbabe says:

    306, The Hubby tells me all the time that “I have love handles, if you love me you will handle it”

  301. Redhead says:

    306, I don’t think your post came off badly. I agree.
    She claims she can’t lose weight because of some disease (like chronic fatigue syndrome or something) but her lifestyle & eating habits are really what is the obvious factor as far as weight goes.
    She is a _good_ mom (loves her kid!), but gosh, be a good HEALTHY mom for 40 more years, not for just 10.

    I keep sending her articles on eating healthy, growing a garden or supporting local farms. I hope something kicks in and they can kick the BWW habit.. especially for the children, because I hate to see that cute little boy grow up just like his parents.

  302. smartassmama says:

    Out of curiosity, how do you define ‘fluffy?’ Like, a size 6? Or a 16?

  303. myra says:

    Ugh, I can’t stand when women ask how to have twins. And I can say that, having laid on bedrest with mine and still having them early, only narrowly avoiding the NICU.

  304. Redhead says:

    I can’t stand people who come on & side with the idiot OP like Pikemommy just did.
    “oh, what bullies! Everyone is giving you REAL advice you didn’t ask for, I am so sorry.. lets be friends. I’ll help you with your twins when they come, after your DH leaves you because he doesn’t want more children anyway. xoxox”

    psh.

  305. mamaton says:

    310- Size 6- that’s pretty normal not fluffy- more like a size 14-18 anything over 18 is no longer fluffy to me- because after size 18 you no longer have the option to shop at the “regular” stores (at least around here) 20+ has to shop at the plus-size store. I’m currently a size 16, doing weight watchers so I won’t stay that way for long! 🙂

  306. BabyBrain says:

    307 – you must live near me. lol

  307. BabyBrain says:

    312 – At least this part was true: after your DH leaves you because he doesn’t want more children anyway.

  308. smartassmama says:

    313. OK Just checking. 6 is small to someone who’s never been there! I’m an 18, so I was starting to wonder if I was a bad mom, in that respect. In true FML fashion, I’m -15lbs from my pre-preg weight, and still the same ‘size’ pants. Thanks son, for making me feel gross.

  309. mamaton says:

    316- the smallest I’ve ever gotten- was when I played ball and had 4-6 hours of practice a day and that was a 10-12, even losing weight I don’t think I’ll ever squeeze these hips into a size 6, even though I’d love to try one day. Have you thought about weight watchers? I don’t pay for it- but I do utilize their plan. I’m gonna give myself away with this (if I haven’t many times over already)- but I lost 4 pounds last week and still ate out 3 times!

  310. Sala says:

    Fluffy varies greatly by person. I know some big women who wear size 20 and they aren’t terribly fluffy, they are really tall and have big bones and some meat on them. They are not very fat, they are just BIG. Not all tall women are bean poles, nor are all women built to be bean poles.

    I’m short. I’m fluffy at a size 10-12. I’m petite so I get fluffy well before size 14 or 16.

  311. mamaton says:

    318- this is true- I am not short (5’7) so I tend to have more to cover before I get fluffy. I guess it’s all about how you’re built.

    With that being said, let me rephrase my response-

    to me, for my body fluffy is more like a size 14-18 anything over 18 is no longer fluffy to me- because after size 18 you no longer have the option to shop at the “regular” stores (at least around here) 20+ has to shop at the plus-size store

    I have a hard time believe the OP when he says he’s a jerk – if he was such an awful, horrid, bitter jerk then why would he have lent her the money in the first place?? She needs to quite her complaining and start paying what she owes.

  320. sourpatchbabe says:

    DANG! Not only did the guy lend them money over a year ago but he should “STFU” and be grateful that they’re sending him $10 a month as a repayment?! If that’s how she treats those who do her kindness remind me never to cross her. No wonder the man is mad at them, she’s running her mouth that the guy is demented and a compulsive liar. But he wasn’t that bad of a person to loan them the money, oops wait he loaned her fiancee/husband/babydaddy the money so it’s not her problem.

  321. Sala says:

    Doesn’t matter that he’s a jerk. What matters is that she’s being a jerk and making excuses. What the hell kind of excuse is “it’s my fiance’s debt, leave me out of it?” He lent money to both of them, she needs to get off her ass and pay it.

  323. sourpatchbabe says:

    At this point it wouldn’t surprise me if she posted trying to get people to send her pp. After all, it’s offensive to even think that she should be expected to pay back money she borrowed from her mother’s ex boyfriend. And since the exboyfriend apparently kicked mother out this past Christmas, I’m betting that it was her nonpayment of the debt that led to their breakup.

  324. smartassmama says:

    Oh that old crazy bastard! Doesn’t he know she shouldn’t have to pay him back?

    Id bet he only loaned the money because her mom convinced him to.

  326. Amygamie says:

    wow most people who posted on the first page of the ANNOYED– warning RANTY thread made their way to my do not b/s/t list. Wow, they seem to think that loans are conditional. Just because you don’t like the person and they can’t type right they aren’t entitled to be payed back with respect. :/

    Her trim for the top pic doesn’t even coordinate. It looks like she got it for the stuff below then lumped it with the colorway on the top just to try for a bigger wad of money.

  334. Flat Stainley says:

    And the fun thread of the day has been closed. Aww shucks. 😦

  335. Sala says:

    And the ranty thread has been closed. Quelle surprise.

  336. Redhead says:

    Seriously? Light gray trim with rainbow yarn..? Coordinating? OK!

  338. melmelly says:

    Excellent idea about picking up cans for money. Around here, it is rare to see a pop can laying around. There is a large group of homeless people that have their areas where they pick up cans for their beer money. It’s actually quite sad.

    Sometimes they get into territory fights, and one man was almost killed because he was sleeping on the wrong side of the bush. He was the nicest of all the homeless men in town, and had been here the longest, but the stabbing put him in the hospital at the other end of the state, and he hasn’t come back yet. I think that was almost four or five years ago.

  339. mamaton says:

    347- that’s sad.

  340. Redhead says:

    346, yeah. Me too. Maybe she’ll get riled up enough to get a strike. he he he

  341. mamaton says:

    349- one can hope 😀

  342. Redhead says:

    oh, she’s back. Fun 😀

  343. mamaton says:

    LMAO

  344. BabyBrain says:

    335 – I don’t like Citifinancial or the chick I talked to last week, guess I dont have to pay them, huh?

  345. mamaton says:

    LOL- I wonder if H2BAM is gonna come in and save the day on that one… probably make it go poof soon.

  346. Redhead says:

    Only a matter of time.. she is always watching. woooOOooOOoO

  347. Redhead says:

    Mamaton? Your avi has something pink in it, no? Or am I confusing you with someone else on DS..?

  348. mamaton says:

    yep it does- I’m sure you are guessing me correctly

  349. Redhead says:

    Ok, cool. 😉 I just like knowing who my Drama-Mama’s are when I am on DS.. lol

  350. mamaton says:

    lol. I’ve figured out who you were because of another post a couple weeks ago- but other than you, and the ones that use their same name here and there, except for maybe 1 or 2 more. 🙂

  351. zamgrawrz says:

    I’m DocsNemesis. There, I said it. Maybe I should just change my name on here 😛

  352. Lori says:

    Pikemommy can bite my shiny white ass 😀

  353. mamaton says:

    360- I had figured out who you were because of the kids names things when I was lurking more than posting. lol

  354. iken says:

    I don’t post much but my avatar has a leaf in it.;)

  355. organicmomma says:

    Soooooo…who was the siggy nark? cause i just got in trouble….not cool narking on a fellow DODS buddy! *shakes finger*

  356. Redhead says:

    What was wrong with your siggy, om?

  357. melmelly says:

    OM, how do you know it was someone from here?

  358. melmelly says:

    I haven’t posted over there since July of last year. I now only go and read when there is a really good trolltastic or scammer thread, that has been linked from here. I don’t even remember what my user name was over there! That’s how much I posted. LOL

  359. mamaton says:

    Who said it was someone from here that ratted you out?

  360. Redhead says:

    Earthmamatobe is BOLD! Woo hoo! :thumbsup:

    (wondering who she is on this board..? I see her follow too many DODS threads on DS.. she has to be here! 🙂 )

  361. zamgrawrz says:

    I think I missed something.

  362. melmelly says:

    Me too, zam.

  363. melmelly says:

    Redhead: are you thinking she was the one that ratted on OM?

  364. Redhead says:

    No No No! hhaha.. Check the Lexy thread..

  365. mamaton says:

    Yeah I know! Gotta love it.

  366. melmelly says:

    Lexy is an IDIOT and/or STUPID! I hope she reads here.

    And my apologies to EM2B.

  367. Just Peachy says:

    I love that she spoke up http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showpost.php?p=10516674&postcount=42
    Now if only Kristen with the quads would get in the ring.

  368. Sala says:

    IIRC, there are lots of moms who are bona fide infertiles who haven’t spoken up. It breaks my heart to hear their stories and I can’t imagine how much threads like this hurt them. I’m a super-fertile 30-cough year old, and it chaps _my_ hide to hear practically babies whining because it took them 3 months to get pregnant. Or hear idiots talk about the fert. meds their docs have given them without reason or monitoring.

    Also, it pisses me off to hear women so desperate for more kids that they ignore their husbands who are all but screaming “NO MORE KIDS!” It just sounds like a recipe for divorce or disaster. I know it sucks to be the one who wants another with a SO who doesn’t agree but it also sucks to be forced into a kid you didn’t agree to. Not cool.

  369. sourpatchbabe says:

    I want to know what kickbacks is Lexy’s doctor getting for doing what he’s doing. It’s not ethical or even moral to prescribe fertility drugs to someone whose uterus could rupture at any given moment in a future pregnancy. And what kind of health insurance is going to approve fertility drugs for someone to whom they just finished paying off a birth (and even if she wasn’t with them during the birth of her last child, they have the child’s DOB; insurance companies don’t like to pay if they don’t have to). And if she doesn’t have insurance and is paying for everything out of her husband’s pockets, how tight must the noose be on her husband’s cojones for him to just let her spend his money on fertility drugs to conceive a child he doesn’t want?

  370. sourpatchbabe says:

    377 I know what you mean. With me, we’d agreed to four children before we got married and once Ducky was born he decided he wanted no more kids and wouldn’t even explain why. He’s not done anything permanent and knows he can’t do it until this has been resolved between us. Even though I would love to be pregnant right now, I have left all BC on him so that if something were to happen there’s no way he can say I tricked him. If he doesn’t use a condom or doesn’t put it on in time, it ain’t my fault.

  371. Rocket says:

    Umm, have fun trying for twins and all the difficulty that comes with them and I’m lucky enough to have escaped the worst of it with these two.

    I always wanted twins too, and now, I’m twinned out. I never knew how fucking hard it was and now I totally wanna forehead smack people who glorify it like it’s some 2-for-1 score or something.

  372. Aj says:

    Why do people think these types of pictures are appropriate?

    OM – Tell me about it. I know the feeling. I’m still wondering who tattletaled on mine too.

  374. BabyBrain says:

    360 – I didn’t know that was you!
    I totally love to give you my girlie/gn dipes. 🙂

  375. sourpatchbabe says:

    The only time that I can think of that it would be appropriate to post poop pictures is if the poster is worried about something with their child and the doctor’s office is closed. But even then, if I was worried enough to go posting pictures I’d take the child to the ER.

  376. mamaton says:

    Good morning ladies.

    381- Yeah…SOOO not appropriate.

  377. organicmomma says:

    366,368-Read up a little in these posts. Someone said they got in trouble for their siggy and marked a few others to make themselves feel better.

  378. organicmomma says:

    382-Read up in the posts, i read it yesterday…but i can’t for the life of me find it now…

  379. organicmomma says:

    Found it…post 181…

  380. mamaton says:

    Is this the same person as the fb for kelsey?

  381. mamaton says:

    Then you know who it was that reported…big deal- if your siggy had been in the boundaries set in the first place then you wouldn’t have had to worry about it. Just sayin.

  382. amessymama says:

    OK that infertile/not infertile chick is seriously a moron. Her last post is complete, irrefutable proof. Not that her other ones weren’t, but that last one is a doozy.

  383. Berserk Llama Syndrome says:

    Holy crap. I just read that Lexy thread and her last post this morning clearly shows the cheese has slid of her cracker. She is seriously off her nut. I had 2 c-sections in a span of 11 months and I don’t think my body is EVER going to recover.

    What a selfish bitch.

  384. organicmomma says:

    390-well, i thought it was, it was only 3 lines. I had a banner on it that was bigger than it was supposed to be. i had no idea there were guidelines on banners?! And someone reporting others because they were reported…sad…
    anyways…does anyone have wool up for sale? I’d rather buy from you ladies than a random on DS. My daughter keeps taking off her dipes, and i find her and the 10 month old playing in poop. But if i double knot her woolies then she can’t get her dipe off…

  385. Redhead says:

    god. Where has anyone told her she isn’t welcome? She is only quoting was stupid Pikehead said in her posts, which were complete assumptions because she has “tiny-feelings and whaa whaa I don’t feel welcome here”.

  386. Redhead says:

    Well. On second though, After all her craptastic ideas and whining about how we don’t want her.. I don’t think she will be welcome much longer.

  387. organicmomma says:

    I must have missed that post somewhere redhead…

  388. organicmomma says:

    Oh ya, that one…

  389. zamgrawrz says:

    Rofl OM, you poor thing. My 2 year old keeps taking his diapers off too…luckily any regular pants/shorts keeps him out of them. That and he can’t get off his Flips, thankfully.

    383-sweet 😀 That means I might actually have a reason to be putting her in wollies again, lol. I’m leaving town tomorrow at like 4am though and won’t be back until the 29th. Speaking of which, I should be packing, not looking at dramaz.

  390. smartassmama says:

    Wow. That girl is batshit crazy.

    Someone should report her for all of those terribly offensive, hateful, awful, wordy dirds.

  391. organicmomma says:

    400-Ya, it happens multiple times a day. She’ll even take off the babies diaper and then…more poop play. I just need wool to double knot and keep her in…I’ve been trying to pin her dipes shut, but she still manages to get them off…

  392. Redhead says:

    394, I have a soaker and a pair of capris left on my FSOT thread.

  393. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    394- I have some GN/boyish shorties for dirt-cheap on CDN. One pair is play condition, the other is in EUC. 😉

  394. organicmomma says:

    pikemommy-the thread hero…whoo hoo! There’s always one…

  395. organicmomma says:

    404-I don’t know who you are…redhead, I’ll go check it out, thanks!

  396. smartassmama says:

    Her name itself makes me cringe. But it’s a local thing.
    The nearby college town has a very Ed Hardy, Abercrombie, Daddy’s Money, soused daily, womanizing, walks-like-an-ape fraternity called the Pikes. So when I see “Pike” I think pompous jackhole. lol

  397. zamgrawrz says:

    OMG I hate disposables. First one I’ve used since DD was 2 weeks old and it leaked poop all over her bumbo and onesie. This sucks 😦

  398. organicmomma says:

    that happens when we use sposies too. Hubby wanted to quit CDing, so I let him have sposies for a week, and it happened every time. He gave up and wanted to CD again…

  399. zamgrawrz says:

    It sucks, I wanted to use cloth while we were gone but his aunt isn’t keen on us washing poopy diapers in her washing machine. Its probably for the best though, since the airlines are both charging us $30 for the first bag we check. We need to compact our stuff down now -_-

  400. smartassmama says:

    you could always vacuum seal your stuff. 🙂

    I just found a place on our way that carries the Flip disposables that diapers.com is all out of.

  401. BabyBrain says:

    400 – I’ll get pics when my LO goes down for a nap this afternoon and get you a link.

    404 – I wanna see your boyish shorties, but don’t know who you are on DS.

    393 – LMAO cheese slid off her cracker!

    OM – It was me that said I reported other siggys, but I was joking. I didn’t. Someone reported me though for mine – I have a feeling I know what thread it came from though. It’s all good…karma swings around.

  402. organicmomma says:

    I don’t care that it got reported, I just took the banner off…but…this is what you said…

    Redhead – I already reported like 5 people today for siggy violations after I got my “warning”. Petty, I know…but I feel better now. Figured I’d give keep the mods busy.

    But that was a joke? You didn’t really do it? Its ok if you did…its kinda funny anyways that the mods care so much about siggys…Do they slow the website down or something? Or just a rule they came up with? sorry yours was reported same to the other persons that was reported…lame-o! Are there siggy rules on CDN I don’t have one, but just wondering?

  403. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    406- Oh, but you do. 😉 I’ll Rep you with the link over on CDN.

    412- I’m not on DS. I was banned this winter for calling out a lying troll. A bunch of us honest, veteran members were. H2BAM didn’t believe what we were saying, so she slapped us with the ban-hammer for “harassing” the member… Then a month later she realized what a twat the person we had outed was, and she banned her, too. My ban won’t be up until the beginning of August. For now, I’m on ClothDiaperNation, though scarcely anymore.

  404. Redhead says:

    414, were you banned for calling out ol’ Fel*sha? I think I remember that thread..

  405. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    Yep, along with amessymama and a couple others. Frustrating when the mods/admin will believe a brand new idiot who’s obviously a drama-started, as opposed to me who has been a member since 2007, with thousands of posts. :eyetwitch:

  406. organicmomma says:

    ban hammer….lol…

    Re: What meds., Procedures (NOT IVF) led to multiples?
    Everyone has their own opinions…and thats exactly what they are…opinions. The avergage spacing between kids is like 2-4yrs. in our society, I obviously go against that out of choice…so what I do seems soooo strange. Anything that goes against the norm. always gets the most criticism…but it’s still fine My mom had all 7 of us….with spacing all well under 2yrs. and we are all fine and so is she….it can be done. Just like a old momma can give birth to a healthy norm. baby, despite all that goes against her. I wouldn’t tell an older momma to wait or not try just because of all the possible complications that could arrise with that preg. and delivery.

    As for let nature do its thing:

    Women that are older, obviously nature doesn’t want you pregnant because you are old. So listen to it, and give it up. Why risk your unborn babies and your health out of selfishness to have a child when you are clearly over the fertile stage in your life.

    Overweight women, clearly nature doesn’t think you should be carrying a baby either until you cut back on the cookies. So either lose weight, or quit b***in about not getting pregnant when its your own d*** fault.

    Thin women, clearly nature thinks you are wayyyy to skinny to carry a successful pregnancy either….so fix the problem or stop complaining.

    Slutty women…unfortunately the amount of partners and the amount of time on birth control as a child because of how much you slept around is biting you in the a** now. Paybacks a b****. Should have listened to your body and realized it was too young to be sleeping around.

    Abortion mammas, you kill one…you don’t deserve another. End of story. Nature knows best!

    Bad moms, obviously God knows that you suck at being a parent…so you aren’t going to be blessed with anymore children, when you can’t do well with the ones you have now.

    Past alcholics or druggy moms—-obviously you weren’t listening to your body when you were putting all that toxic crap in your bodies….it’s probably contaminated for life….meaning no babies for you.

    ****The point is, many womens bodies are telling them “NO” to babies and thats why they are struggling to conceive. Whos to say which women are truely “struggling” and which aren’t, who needs to wait it out, who needs to give up…ect….Obviously nature tells peoples bodies a lot of things…that when you are in the situation you don’t listen to either. But you are going to pick and chose what can be listened to and what can’t be. Just silly.

    ****Lastly there are no rules that go against my thread in this TTC forum. So it shouldn’t have been attacked (or words of wisdom…whatever you what to put in there)…all threads should be accepted with support…and if you can’t, then you should just refrain from commenting. Thats the whole point! If you’re not asked your opinion….then don’t give it. If everyone commented on everything they didn’t like, every forum would be a war zone. But most keep their mouths shut if they don’t like it, UNLESS they are asked for their personal opinion. I didn’t ask for anyones opinion….and I could have guessed the majority of you’lls opinions from you’lls comments in previous threads…so I don’t need to hear it again. Although MANY of you’ll said that it should only be a few months after nursing for everything to be regulated…and now many are saying 12months. So I figured since I waited those few months (now 8) I had a right to post without flames…but obviously you’ll set a new guideline at 12mo. I could guarantee in 4mo. from now, I would hear the same ol s***. B/c of my number of kids in the number of yrs. I had them, I would then hear…well maybe you need a little more extra time on top of that with your circumstances.

    You know what irks me….I can look at you’lls siggy or profile pics. throughout the time I’ve been a member of DS, and some of the things piss me off….but their opinions that I have…that I would never just voice unless I was asked. I’m disgusted when I see kids with pacis in their mouths when they are 2 or older….I’m disgusted when I see you’ll complain that it’s impossible to potty train your child and they refuse and they are like 3. Or how do I get my kid to eat all his/her food…how do I get my kid to not throw tantrums in the middle of the store….blah blah blah. All I can envision is a bunch of snotty nose little brats that rule their house and the parents just say they refuse to do what I teach them. Sounds like lack of parenting to me. Should I just jump out and say that when I see threads you’ll have started about things dealing with your kids, even though you never asked my personal opinion? Well h*** no…that f***in rude. Despite my disgust for parents that have kids like that (which is the majority of our society…YUCK), I still would refrain from giving my personal opinion and give the best advice I could considering the situation. Thats the whole point. It was a public forum where I could post whatever I wanted, and if the struggling want to read it…so be it, keep your comments to yourself…it’s just flat out rude. It’s NOT rude of me to post this thread in the TTC forum….because thats exactly what it is…me trying to conceive…so if you ran across it and were pissed…thats your fault. I’m not tippytoeing around everyone anymore. I am so tired of this universe revolving around the underdogs and not even thinking twice about just normal everyday people without problems. If the infertile are the only ones that need comforting, than they should name this forum ONLY FOR INFERTILE women…if the the poor are the only ones that need help, than maybe everyone should be poor since they give hands outs to worthless drug addict trash. Everyone in their daily life has to worry about not offending a different race, or religion, or status, as to not hurt the underdogs feelings….well I am tired of tippytoeing around everyone. I live my life, if you don’t like it, get the f*** out of it. I’m not basing my every decision and thought process on everyone else around me that has NOTHING to do with my life at all. it’s ridiculous. If you really think I am going to think really hard “should I start this thread, or should I not” just because I don’t want to offend the struggling (which this forum DOESN’T belong to), you have got to be kidding me.

    And I know no one said I “neglected” my kids…but everyone is saying I should enjoy them and concentrate on them…ect….Who’s to say I’m not? Def. not someone over the internet! If every thought consumed our children….we would get nothing done. So while TTC thoughts might run through my head during the day….it doesn’t become a real possibility or draining until nightime comes when they are in bed. If thoughts shouldn’t run through my head, then maybe I should not think about what to cook, or bills to pay, or plans for the week? Maybe those thoughts are taken away from my kids? I think not. I will admit that TTC thoughts were very raw and alive the first 4 months of trying, and unfortunately my kids had to pay for it…since thats all I could think about. But they now aren’t and haven’t been for awhile…so I see nothing that is taken away from my kids by my thought pattern or actions at night. I think I had a good life with all my siblings really close, and my children do also. Nothing is taken away from them, and they don’t get any less attention than other kids. Maybe it’s divided….it’s good for them…they don’t need to have my full attention every sec. of the day and act like the spoiled brat in the super market. They get the attention and love they need to thrive…and new additions or pregnancys don’t take away from that. Maybe in your life, but not mine.

    ~~~~For those that actually did answer the question and maybe gave an opinion but didn’t put me down at all. Thank you! Some of you’ll actually were kind with your opinions….which I am not the least bit annoyed by even though I didn’t ask for them. And some of you’ll need better skills in communicating effectively…and I feel sorry for your kids.

    I thought about getting myself banned in my response to her, but I decided against it ..wrote something else..and hope the mods will ban her instead.

  409. zamgrawrz says:

    I don’t even have a warning yet, I must be a goody two shoes.

    On a funny note, the twin-wanting-nutter changed her thread title to DELETE.

    Oh and I got my printer to work for the first time EVER. Apparently installing updates is a good thing. <.<

  410. Flat Stainley says:

    Redhead, you don’t have any strikes yet, do you?

  411. Redhead says:

    Nope, nothing.

  412. Flat Stainley says:

    Then I can’t see how that would get you a whack with the BanHammer. 😀

  413. Redhead says:

    Well, my FIRST response to her (which I erased and re-typed) might have gotten one 😉

  414. zamgrawrz says:

    Thread is closed.

    I like how she didn’t even touch on the risks. She never once mentioned anything about it. That, to me, is totally selfish and irresponsible. I mean, I know people who have had another one before their doctors recommended it-heck, I did (only 17 months in between cesareans…though DD was an oops, not planned)-but she’s had 3 in 3 years!! GAH! It just bugs me.

    I hope she doesn’t find out the hard way that she’s being an idiot.

  415. smartassmama says:

    I had a fucking well thought reply to that twunt.
    Closed thread, I curse you.

  416. Redhead says:

    Why did it quote her previous msg instead of the new one in my response? Weird.

    I feel sorry for her kids & DH, having an idiot, jerkfaced mom/wife like that.

  417. Amygamie says:

    418- Holy cow, 😮 I was planning on coming back to this thread but it got locked when I decided to clean the house really quick. 😦

  418. smartassmama says:

    See what happens when you do chores? We should swear off chores 😉

  419. Redhead says:

    someone is editing her post. The cuss words are being removed.

  420. smartassmama says:

    427 – probably so her “I’m going to try my shitty damndest to offend everyone possible at one time” post can be edited for content, and not have the lovely posterity of being quoted?

  421. smartassmama says:

    In fact, when Kate edited it for you, the reason listed is “quoted language.” That’s effing lame. Or, if I were Lexy it’d be F***ing lame.

    And since I didn’t get to say it there, wtf is with the you’ll shit? Please tell me I’m not the only one who noticed the simply stupid misspelling of y’all.

  422. Redhead says:

    I noticed “you’ll” too. I am almost *this* close to PMing Lexy to be a turd and say “hey, just so you know.. the word is “y’all”. That might help you communicate better next time, along with just not talking anymore, ever.” Just wanted to help, goodluck! xoxoxo”

    This Lexy chick really showed her age in this thread. I hate when people get all defensive and go on the attack. I hope when she calms down and rethinks things, some of the points made sink in. Doubtful though. I reported her post, so uncalled for, imo.

  427. BabyBrain says:

    413 – I got a pretty hateful PM from mod katedanzer about my siggy. As if I was upsetting the balance of the universe with my 6 lines. *sniff* I miss my old siggy. 😦
    I KNOW it used to be 6 lines – I think they changed some of the siggy rules without telling us and now they have nothing better to do than surf the site searching for violators *gasp*

  428. BabyBrain says:

    lmao 436

  429. BabyBrain says:

    414 – do you have your shorties up somewhere else? Spots, CDN?

  430. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    440- Yep, on CDN.

  431. Redhead says:

    katedanzer is weird. She is probably my least favorite mod.

  432. Redhead says:

    I *think* she is the one who allowed the retaliatory FB in Skittle’s case.

    wow-I am gone for the morning and miss out on all the fun! Dang! I can’t believe how seriously dumb Lexi sounds. She doesn’t care that she’s tempting her uterus to burst and die, not wishing that to happen-but seriously- she’s stupid for not even acknowledging the fact that there are so many risk factors for her situation. I had a c/s 13 months ago- I know that I’m not completely healed even now, so guess what- I’m not trying to force my body to do something it’s not ready for yet. People like her piss me off…

  434. Aj says:

    If I’m not mistaken, you’ll is a contraction for you will. 🙂

  435. smartassmama says:

    Yep. Like, “You’ll have to finish your supper before you get desert.”

    But this doofus says, “I know plenty of you’ll have gotten preg. very easy with previous children and are now dealing with “infertility,””
    and
    “I will then be able to post without flames and give you’ll a big; ”
    and
    “Clearly none of you’ll can tell the future (as I can not either), but you’ll seem to try to just fine.”
    etc. It was a lot like Miles (IIRC) and her labtop from a few months ago. lol

  436. Redhead says:

    444, exactly. But, that isn’t how she used it.. I say we all PM her with concerns over grammar. 😉

  437. mommaton says:

    she’s stupid and the mods are gonna take her side…like always since everyone who says something sensible is being overly mean and hateful. I don’t know why my other post didn’t show up- probably because my phone is stupid.

  438. Kimbella says:

    I know a lady who aspires her family to be like the Duggars. The house her family built even resembles the Duggars’ house!

    She starts weaning her babies at 6 months so that she can try to get pregnant again. She weans them to a homemade goats milk formula. (Even Michelle Duggar doesn’t do that!)

    Her first baby was a c/s. She’s had 3 successful vbacs since then. Now she’s pregnant with twins. She was distraught because the ob’s office where her midwife practices told her that she was an automatic c/s.

    Her twins are due only 2 months after her youngest turns 1 yr.

    She was considering a homebirth, but finally found a doctor who is willing to let her do a trial of labor. This doctor will deliver vba4c patients. The only delivery he won’t allow is a breech vbac.

    I feel really sad for her children. 😦

  439. organicmomma says:

    Soooo…what i took her point as was- if you can’t get pregnant, you don’t deserve children???? So, other’s who are trying and actually are infertile and can’t conceive should not take meds to have them because they don’t deserve them, but…she should and she deserves them…which makes her better than everyone else???!!!

  440. smartassmama says:

    I saw it as, everyone pointed out that she was being a huge ingrate, being irresponsible, and even disrespectful. She only got one asspat, and everyone else told the truth. So with her feelings hurt & panties wadded, she sat out to first a way to piss off as many people as possible.

    Seriously, she made herself look Like a hateful biotch. Add to that the doctoring of her foul language. Iirc, that sticky is on every forum. She needs some strikes.

  441. zamgrawrz says:

    Oh yeah, I hadn’t even touched on that…so she weaned her youngest so she could conceive? And she said she’s been trying and not breastfeeding for 8 months in at least one post…which means she weaned her DS at like 3 months JUST so she could TTC? Jeeze….I mean, I don’t look down on people who wean early for whatever reason, but to straight out admit you weaned early (really early) just because you wanted another one? Bleck.

  442. organicmomma says:

    Ya, that is sad. I BF my first for a year, and my second two for 6 months, but it was because I didn’t have a choice. My husband left at 6 weeks with both kids(left, came back, left again, came back). I also have 2 scratch that, was 2, now 3(just found that one out) pain diseases. With those and the stress of no support, I didn’t have a choice. I also got pregnant with my 3rd while still BFing…that chick…ugh…

  443. organicmomma says:

    On another note…I’m sick of flakes that waste my time on DS…asking me all these questions, making me pull out all my stuff. Tell them what i have, say they want it and then….back out…annoying…

  444. Redhead says:

    According to Lexy:

    1) She can post what she wants, when she wants and where she wants, as DS is a public forum.

    2) We are only allowed to respond to answer her question. Adding outside advice is strictly forbidden and downright RUDE.

    3) She can wean her child at 3 months to conceive another. Because it is her body and her life. Nobody should ever question HER ethics.

    4) She can lie to the DRs about her fertility to get on more medication, because she is, after all, infertile for these whole 8 months PP.

    5) We are bad, bad mothers who are mean to our children because we cannot communicate effectively.

    6) If any woman is old, fat, thin, on drugs, a slut, a past alcoholic, bad mom or had an abortion, you have no right to try to get pregnant. But, she can get pregnant when she wants.

    7) We have no right to tell her that her children are “neglected”, though she admits we didn’t say that, but she is well aware that us saying “enjoy the kids you have now” ACTUALLY means that we think she doesn’t spend time with her kids now. Besides, she doesn’t need to spend more time with her kids, because if she does, they will act like the spoiled brat in the supermarket she is subjected to everytime she goes there.

    8) Everyone told her it was forbidden for her to post on TTC.

    9) Everyone attacked her in a subtle, evil disguise of good intentions.

    10) Anyone who doesn’t parent their children how she does has snotty-nosed brats who run the household.

    11) She gets disgusted at anyone who gives a bottle or paci to their child longer than she thinks is necessary.

    12) “all threads should be accepted with support…and if you can’t, then you should just refrain from commenting. Thats the whole point! If you’re not asked your opinion….then don’t give it.”

    13) The TTC forum doesn’t belong to those who are struggling. And she isn’t going to be nice to someone just because she can have 3 kids in a few years and someone else has been trying for 5 years with none. Seriously, don’t you know she is infertile?!

    14) She is thankful for the people who just answered her question like the rules of the forum state. For all us other idiots who think we can post something different..get the hell off _her_ board.

    15) For everyone who added their opinion in a manner that she felt was nice and sweet- thanks, but she didn’t need your opinion anyway. After all, what did you think this forum was for? Adding your 2cents? Free speech? Helpful words of wisdom? Psh! I mean, come on. Didn’t you read where she only wanted an answer to her question, and anything else was against the rules? Don’t you know DS is a communist diapering board?

    16) She never said her DH doesn’t want more children, he just doesn’t want a big family. BIG DIFFERENCE. That’s why she needs to have twins now, so her family won’t be too _small_.

    That about sums it up, I think.

  445. organicmomma says:

    All I have to say is…reflection my dear lexy…reflection…she is reflecting on others how she really is…she admitted herself that she neglected her children for a while bc her mind was consumed with ttc. She is reflecting who she is and blaming it on others bc she hates that about herself….yes, reflection…

  446. Berserk Llama Syndrome says:

    All this Lexy bullshit just reminds me there of all the people I can’t stand on DS. T

    There are a some that just really grind my gears. They come in and post some inane bullshit. No contribution to the thread whatsoever. I just want to talk about me, or ALL my money, or MY problems. If I ever decided to start posting how I really felt I would be banned so fast I’d set some sort of record.

    If I ever did anything with my CDN username I would go out in a blaze of glory. YAGE indeed.

  447. Berserk Llama Syndrome says:

    Crap. I guess when I get all worked up I can no longer form a coherent sentence.

  448. sciencefair says:

    Organicmomma, I have some girly wool shorties. Its plain color block (pinks and purples I think) stuff my MIL knitted for us that we never used because it was too big on my DD at the time. I think I have it listed on CDN with pics and measurements. But really, I will sell it all crazy cheap because it has not moved. At all. Heck, its at the bottom of the “diaper crap that won’t sell and we aren’t using’ bin now. And don’t ask me about the yarn, I have no clue. She just said it was pricey because it was real wool.

  449. Just Peachy says:

    Actually many of the women said she didn’t belong in the struggles area with which I firmly agree.
    And now I seriously wanna choke that bitch. My daughter is 3 and still takes a paci for comfort and we are having potty training issues. So that makes me a horrible person because I allow it?
    Fuck her and the horse she rode in on. People like her really make me wish gravity would selectively malfunction and send ppl like her flying into outer space.

  450. Redhead says:

    I think a magic “Lexy shaped” sinkhole filled with lava would be the best way to take her out.

  451. KESMom says:

    It just makes me wonder what kind of hole in her sad, pathetic life she’s trying to fill with babies to make herself happy. That is always how I feel when I read shit like that.

  452. werd says:

    LMAO Peachy!!!!

    My DD took a paci until 3 and potty-trained at 3… I promise you, she survived *eyeroll*

  453. mommaton says:

    I guess my posts are under moderation…

    253- that pretty much sums it up…

    259&260- ITA!

  454. Redhead says:

    Yeah, next she’ll be saying “because of all the stress, he forgot to use DC. They were shipped but I don’t have tracking, be patient”

  455. sourpatchbabe says:

    Um, first of all why is a five year old carrying a one year old down the stairs? Stairs are dangerous and a five year old has no place taking another child down the stairs, they’re not strong or balanced enough to be able to stop an accident from happening if they slip.

    Second of all if I just spent several hours in the ER the last thing on my mind would be sending my husband to the post office.

    And third, things like spellchecker, basic grammar, apostrophes, etc. are your friends. Geez, I shouldn’t have to be decoding a thread to figure out what the heck has been typed.

  456. Kirsty says:

    Poof- Lexy be gone. Damn. I didn’t get to finish reading it.

  457. zamgrawrz says:

    My post office fails. That is all.

  458. sissy hankshaw says:

    458 well I’m beyond a horrible person then because my middle went to almost 4 until he was potty trained. Maybe I should pm her and get some parenting tips.

  459. Blondie says:

    464. I KNOW, RIGHT ?!?!?!

  460. Redhead says:

    467, my 5 yr old still sucks her thumb some, still. Lexy needs to help me, too.

  461. sissy hankshaw says:

    468 oh the horror. i’m calling cps.

  462. renee says:

    #465, I still have the thread open…I’ll c&p for you

    Re: What meds., Procedures (NOT IVF) led to multiples?
    Everyone has their own opinions…and thats exactly what they are…opinions. The avergage spacing between kids is like 2-4yrs. in our society, I obviously go against that out of choice…so what I do seems soooo strange. Anything that goes against the norm. always gets the most criticism…but it’s still fine My mom had all 7 of us….with spacing all well under 2yrs. and we are all fine and so is she….it can be done. Just like a old momma can give birth to a healthy norm. baby, despite all that goes against her. I wouldn’t tell an older momma to wait or not try just because of all the possible complications that could arrise with that preg. and delivery.

    As for let nature do its thing:

    Women that are older, obviously nature doesn’t want you pregnant because you are old. So listen to it, and give it up. Why risk your unborn babies and your health out of selfishness to have a child when you are clearly over the fertile stage in your life.

    Overweight women, clearly nature doesn’t think you should be carrying a baby either until you cut back on the cookies. So either lose weight, or quit about not getting pregnant when its your own fault.

    Thin women, clearly nature thinks you are wayyyy to skinny to carry a successful pregnancy either….so fix the problem or stop complaining.

    women…unfortunately the amount of partners and the amount of time on birth control as a child because of how much you slept around is biting you in the now. Paybacks a. Should have listened to your body and realized it was too young to be sleeping around.

    Abortion mammas, you kill one…you don’t deserve another. End of story. Nature knows best!

    Bad moms, obviously God knows that you suck at being a parent…so you aren’t going to be blessed with anymore children, when you can’t do well with the ones you have now.

    Past alcholics or druggy moms—-obviously you weren’t listening to your body when you were putting all that toxic crap in your bodies….it’s probably contaminated for life….meaning no babies for you.

    ****The point is, many womens bodies are telling them “NO” to babies and thats why they are struggling to conceive. Whos to say which women are truely “struggling” and which aren’t, who needs to wait it out, who needs to give up…ect….Obviously nature tells peoples bodies a lot of things…that when you are in the situation you don’t listen to either. But you are going to pick and chose what can be listened to and what can’t be. Just silly.

    ****Lastly there are no rules that go against my thread in this TTC forum. So it shouldn’t have been attacked (or words of wisdom…whatever you what to put in there)…all threads should be accepted with support…and if you can’t, then you should just refrain from commenting. Thats the whole point! If you’re not asked your opinion….then don’t give it. If everyone commented on everything they didn’t like, every forum would be a war zone. But most keep their mouths shut if they don’t like it, UNLESS they are asked for their personal opinion. I didn’t ask for anyones opinion….and I could have guessed the majority of you’lls opinions from you’lls comments in previous threads…so I don’t need to hear it again. Although MANY of you’ll said that it should only be a few months after nursing for everything to be regulated…and now many are saying 12months. So I figured since I waited those few months (now 8) I had a right to post without flames…but obviously you’ll set a new guideline at 12mo. I could guarantee in 4mo. from now, I would hear the same ol. B/c of my number of kids in the number of yrs. I had them, I would then hear…well maybe you need a little more extra time on top of that with your circumstances.

    You know what irks me….I can look at you’lls siggy or profile pics. throughout the time I’ve been a member of DS, and some of the things me off….but their opinions that I have…that I would never just voice unless I was asked. I’m disgusted when I see kids with pacis in their mouths when they are 2 or older….I’m disgusted when I see you’ll complain that it’s impossible to potty train your child and they refuse and they are like 3. Or how do I get my kid to eat all his/her food…how do I get my kid to not throw tantrums in the middle of the store….blah blah blah. All I can envision is a bunch of snotty nose little brats that rule their house and the parents just say they refuse to do what I teach them. Sounds like lack of parenting to me. Should I just jump out and say that when I see threads you’ll have started about things dealing with your kids, even though you never asked my personal opinion? Well no…that rude. Despite my disgust for parents that have kids like that (which is the majority of our society…YUCK), I still would refrain from giving my personal opinion and give the best advice I could considering the situation. Thats the whole point. It was a public forum where I could post whatever I wanted, and if the struggling want to read it…so be it, keep your comments to yourself…it’s just flat out rude. It’s NOT rude of me to post this thread in the TTC forum….because thats exactly what it is…me trying to conceive…so if you ran across it and were pissed…thats your fault. I’m not tippytoeing around everyone anymore. I am so tired of this universe revolving around the underdogs and not even thinking twice about just normal everyday people without problems. If the infertile are the only ones that need comforting, than they should name this forum ONLY FOR INFERTILE women…if the the poor are the only ones that need help, than maybe everyone should be poor since they give hands outs to worthless drug addict trash. Everyone in their daily life has to worry about not offending a different race, or religion, or status, as to not hurt the underdogs feelings….well I am tired of tippytoeing around everyone. I live my life, if you don’t like it, get the out of it. I’m not basing my every decision and thought process on everyone else around me that has NOTHING to do with my life at all. it’s ridiculous. If you really think I am going to think really hard “should I start this thread, or should I not” just because I don’t want to offend the struggling (which this forum DOESN’T belong to), you have got to be kidding me.

    And I know no one said I “neglected” my kids…but everyone is saying I should enjoy them and concentrate on them…ect….Who’s to say I’m not? Def. not someone over the internet! If every thought consumed our children….we would get nothing done. So while TTC thoughts might run through my head during the day….it doesn’t become a real possibility or draining until nightime comes when they are in bed. If thoughts shouldn’t run through my head, then maybe I should not think about what to cook, or bills to pay, or plans for the week? Maybe those thoughts are taken away from my kids? I think not. I will admit that TTC thoughts were very raw and alive the first 4 months of trying, and unfortunately my kids had to pay for it…since thats all I could think about. But they now aren’t and haven’t been for awhile…so I see nothing that is taken away from my kids by my thought pattern or actions at night. I think I had a good life with all my siblings really close, and my children do also. Nothing is taken away from them, and they don’t get any less attention than other kids. Maybe it’s divided….it’s good for them…they don’t need to have my full attention every sec. of the day and act like the spoiled brat in the super market. They get the attention and love they need to thrive…and new additions or pregnancys don’t take away from that. Maybe in your life, but not mine.

    ~~~~For those that actually did answer the question and maybe gave an opinion but didn’t put me down at all. Thank you! Some of you’ll actually were kind with your opinions….which I am not the least bit annoyed by even though I didn’t ask for them. And some of you’ll need better skills in communicating effectively…and I feel sorry for your kids.

    Becky-The whole point…is I didn’t ask for the advice. So if it is unwelcomed, its rude to give it. End of story….so I will reply in anger for advice I didn’t ask for. If I had asked for it, and everyone gave me their opinion…than I would accept all their opinions and not be aggravated at anyone…just take it all in.. SINCE I ASKED FOR IT. But I DIDN’T!

    **** But right now I’ve got the summer reading program to go to at the library with my kids….apparently I must be like the majority of desperate women TTC that completely ignore their other children and can’t and won’t enjoy them. BTW: My nightime actions have nothing to do with my kids since they are sleeping….so I am concentrating on them….just not when their sleeping and I’m having to have another baby. My kids don’t know I want another baby, I don’t talk to them about it, I don’t cry in front of them about it…my husband carries that burden. Lastly my DH DOES WANT MORE CHILDREN! I’m not sure where you decided to make your own interpretation of him not wanting a large family=not wanting anymore. He doesn’t want a large family, and this last TTC effort (he wants) will be our last…because he only wants 4 kids…but has said that he wouldn’t mind twins this last time around, since he knows how much he promised me a semi-large family.

    Anyways more to come when I get home today….you’ll continue to bite eachothers heads off when this thread doesn’t affect your life in the least.

    Marie- I agree, I wish everyone could just get along and quit playing the underdog card over and over and over again; to somehow make someone rethink what they posted in an OPEN TTC forum that is NOT for only the struggling.

    Lastly before I go tend to my neglected children, I said I was seeking infertility treatments…not LEXY=INFERTILE! If I want to speed the process along, so be it….maybe I’m not infertile, maybe I am…maybe only time will tell, and not some random women over the internet. Thats like me saying “I know you are a fat because you eat wayyy to many twinkies, since you used to be thin,” and then you saying “no I really think I have a problem, I can’t lose weight no matter what, and just keep gaining.” Then I say “well thats a load of, you obviously are making a mountain out of a mole hole and don’t know what you are talking about.” Would I ever say that, no!!! I don’t know that person…I don’t KNOW EVERY ASPECT of that persons body, every aspect of the medical field, every aspect of that persons past medical history!!! Therefore all I would ever be able to come up with is my biased opinion because of my own personal experiences in life! Lastly enough with the amount of kids I have had in the amount of time that I have had them….I know plenty of you’ll have gotten preg. very easy with previous children and are now dealing with “infertility,” although I don’t see how that is the case since you were sooooo fertile before. It doesn’t just up and change between pregnancy…therefore pronoucing you FERTILE….Unfortunately I didn’t wait the alloted time thats seems fit by you’ll to start worrying….maybe 2yrs. down the road if I don’t have anymore kids, I will then be able to post without flames and give you’ll a big; since I would have waited ALONE, not chatting at all, since I didn’t have a problem. Clearly none of you’ll can tell the future (as I can not either), but you’ll seem to try to just fine. Okay, now I really got to go or I will be running late getting my neglected children someone. Rats I never pay attention to them, I’m not enjoying them in the least, I’m not spending every second of the day with them….damnit I am missing out on everything in their lives just because I want one more baby. I might need to stop sleeping all day dreaming about another baby, while they are doing dishes and mowing the grass. HAHAHA
    Well, that is the most beautiful piece of verbal (typing) diarrhea I have read in over a week!
    Congrats Lexy, you have certainly made a name for yourself with a group of women who were honestly trying to help you and give you some sensible advice.

    I can c&p more for you but that is basically where she lost it

    Stinking “Katedanzer” switched the post I commented on! Made me so mad. The verbal diarrhea comment belonged to Lexy’s bashing post, not the one KD stuck it on when she decided to edit it. So stupid. :/

    Oh, & in regards to the kids on the stairs post – H2BAM, you’d be much cooler if you’d join in on our conversations instead of just using us for tips on what to say, what threads to lock/close. Just sayin’.

  471. Lori says:

    Holy Moses, you mean I actually contributed to the drama blog? Big TWO POINTS to me and my much dislike for this crazy LOONY that I’ve wanted to punch in the face since she tried to take over the september DDC (when she was *so sure* she was going to get pregnant that she started the due date thread).

    What a farking twit. It embarrasses me that people who are the same age as me act like that. Go suck your thumb and grow up.

  472. Redhead says:

    Um, 479.. don’t you know that only BAD parents allow their children to suck their thumbs/pacis/bottles past age 2? I mean, Lexy _knows_ her stuff.. how dare you suggest she do something *disgusting* like “suck your thumb”!??

  473. Lori says:

    😀 I work in the ER (just doing registration. I can NOT handle trauma) and I kid you not I walked in on a 24 year old woman sucking her thumb while waiting to be treated on tuesday.

  474. sourpatchbabe says:

    479 what?! She actually started the DD thread and wasn’t even pregnant? My God the quality of the people on DS is going downhill. We must be scraping the bottom of the barrel now.

  475. Redhead says:

    481… when I was *wrongfully* induced with my first, they also overdosed me on Stadol. I was so loopy I sat there sucking my thumb for like 30 minutes! So awful.
    I was never a thumb-sucker as a child, it was really weird, I can still remember it, vaguely.

  476. Redhead says:

    but, all 3 of my girls have been thumb suckers. 1st stopped at 9 months on her own, 2nd hasn’t stopped, and #3 quit around 6 months. I’m not for making them stop at any age, though we are “gently” starting to remind our 5 yr old that it won’t be too good for her teeth, so we may wanna slow down on that. 🙂

  477. Redhead says:

    I mean, SHE might want to slow down on that. eh, tired.

  478. Lori says:

    482 – I can’t remember where it was talked about before on here, and apparently I’m not good at searching old threads… but here’s the OP on DS.

    I remember that thread! I didn’t put 2+2 together and realize it was her though. She really is kookoo bananas.

  480. Redhead says:

    GOOD GRIEF! She is a M A J O R …um.. “word” I don’t say!

    Yeah seriously. Don’t ever question her on anything, she’ll go stark raving mad on ya..

  481. Redhead says:

    Well, on second thought. She has annoyed me enough that I’ll make a point to question anything I can in any of her threads from now on. She deserves my trolling her posts the rest of her time on DS.

  482. Lori says:

    Since I was looking through her old threads… I found where she first started posting in TTC.

    She was 4 1/2 months PP, and had JUST gotten her first PP AF in December. How does that add up to 8 months TTC? It’s just now month SIX since her cycle returned…

  483. sourpatchbabe says:

    Because she was trying for a baby as soon as her csection scar scabbed over?

  484. mommaton says:

    Wow…Lexi is seriously psycho…

    she did get me to thinking about something while I was reading her posts though…when do you start prenatal care? She said she doesnLt start her prenatal care until 12 weeks or so, I started mine as soon as I found out. which was 5 weeks. What a mom she is…just WOW

  485. KESMom says:

    I picked up DD at daycare yesterday and there was a new baby in her class – an 11 month old who has a 5 week old sister. I bet Lexy would be jealous of that mom. They’re 10 months apart! My vagina shuddered at the thought of babies that close together.

  486. Redhead says:

    I think it is neat when I see mama’s who can have children close together without ill effects. I have a friend who has 3, they are 3, 2 and 1.. They didn’t TRY to get pregnant, they just didn’t do anything to stop it. She has easy-breezy pregnancies and happy labors, and is up and running like 4 days after delivering.

    But then there is Lexy. Lexy needs serious help. In the form of a straight jacket, sedatives and a padded cell.

  487. Kirsty says:

    Bejeebus! I think she should pass over the fertility meds and head toward the mood stabilizers. Why is she not banned after that delightful tirade?

  488. Amygamie says:

    It breaks my heart that she would wean her baby so early just to increase her chances of getting pregnant again. 😦 I’m still having a hard time not feeling jealous of other people with babies, that is why I don’t get on DS very much. I need to get over my childish emotions first.

  489. coffeehoar says:

    Good god, that woman needs a good clam kick.

    496 LOL @ clamkick

    I like KHITBASH myself

  491. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    495- Agreed. I felt SO guilty when we found out we were unexpectedly expecting DS when DD was 13 months old. My supply was completely gone by the time she was 15 months old, and she was SO frustrated, because she wasn’t ready to wean.

  492. Redhead says:

    Amy, your emotions aren’t childish in the least. You had a tremendous loss, I think you’re doing wonderfully to be back on DS or here at all. :hugs:

  493. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    Wanted to add-I agree with your statement, “It breaks my heart that she would wean her baby so early just to increase her chances of getting pregnant again.”

    I DO NOT think that you’re emotions are childish. I have a friend who lost her 5-week-old to SIDS a few years ago, and it was very difficult for her to be around me when I was pregnant or had a young infant. I never took it personally or thought she was childish. She was in very deep pain, and anything that reminded her of her sweet little boy was like reliving his death over and over. You, as well as every mama who has ever lost a baby, are and always will be amazingly strong women whom I admire and pray for. ❤

  494. Just Peachy says:

    Definitely not childish. I know I feel guilty being pregnant now knowing that my bff is having real difficulties getting pregnant.

  495. noisybean says:

    Amy you have every right to feel all the emotions you want. Definitely not childish. I don’t even know you yet my heart aches for you and what you went through.

    As for Lexy-loon, not so much. That chick is one pancake shy of a short stack.

  496. Amygamie says:

    I can’t bring myself to look at the June due date board or facebook, everyone is either having babies or already has them. It embarrasses me that I am jealous, it is such a petty emotion. It doesn’t help when other people belittle me for being childless.

  497. Redhead says:

    Well, if someone is belittling you & saying your childish, I think they have issues and need to be out of your life until they straighten up.
    That is heartless of them.

  498. sourpatchbabe says:

    Let us know if someone is telling you that you’re being childish. I have a 2×4 with a rusty nail that I’d like to introduce to them, I’m sure someone else must have a broken beer bottle.

  499. Sala says:

    503. People belittle you? Wow, that’s low. You’ve had a loss and they can’t give up a little sympathy or at least a little shutthehellup? Wow. I am so sorry. That’s wrong.

    I’d be practicing my lines, like “I’m sorry my loss and grief offends you. Until you learn a little human feeling and sympathy, maybe you’d like to have someone take your kid with no hope of ever getting them back? No? Ok, then shut up.”

    Emotions might be misplaced but they are always real. In this case, I’d say that you are very much entitled to feel the way you do and the way you feel should never be belittled. That’s cruel. It’s not petty, it’s just another form of pain. And losing a child was the hardest thing I know I’ve ever gone through. Several years out I can still be reduced to tears by a thought or a comment. I’m sorry for your loss.

  500. Amygamie says:

    ***Rant***

    I know that is why I am shutting those people out of my life but it is kinda hard because that was everyone. So it kinda isolates me from everyone but Dh’s family, the men in my family, and my next door neighbors. So now I have everyone that I shut out of my life saying, “Ah HA! I knew it! You are choosing them over me! blah blah how could you?!?!” and everyone one else that isn’t family, freaks out and says I have “changed”.

    The only thing that changed was that I stopped letting them says those things to me or treat the way way they always have. It got to the point to were it is best for me to not even be around them, so I did. I finally did something for myself but I am being told by everyone else how selfish I am to do so. Everyone else insist they are 100% right and are so stubborn and determined to win this fight/argument even though I am not even in it. I took myself out and walked away.

    Its extremely frustrating. I also have the same people dictating to me how I should put my son to rest and are angry with me for our decision to have him cremated. They also demanded I do two services instead of one because it isn’t fair that I used a funeral home closer to his side of the family because they offered to do it for us for free and I would only have to pay for the urn and $150 to get him cremated instead of spending thousands and thousand of dollars on two separate services because of retarded ASSumptions and the IRL trolls that are a part of my life demand it.

    So here is it I ended up not doing a service at all and we are doing our own little thing at home by ourselves. Just like our wedding. So now that it has been a month of attempting to shut out negative influences on our life. I now have these said people insisting I am either going to go emo and/or suicidal or become a crazy lady that talks to baby dolls and feeds them.

    Go figures. FML.

    And these people wonder why I started playing lottery tickets, no it isn’t a midlife crisis, it is just that I am way overdue for some good luck. If want to spend that good luck on the lottery then so be it. No need to try to analyze my life for me thank you very much. BTW if another person tells me I need to thank god right after telling me that it was just gods will for my son to die and almost me as well I could fucking scream and start biting people.

  501. Amygamie says:

    Not really biting people but I feel like it sometimes, I get it from this clip so my humor will make a little more sense 😉 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MDPxRuLUC8

  502. Sala says:

    Again, I am so sorry. My family doesn’t know what to say so they basically have ignored that I was ever pregnant, that she ever lived, that she died. Frankly, I MUCH prefer that to someone telling me it was God’s will. I’m glad that makes them feel better but its a total crap thing to say to a bereaving parent. Your child should be here, in your arms, not in God’s arms, thank you very much.

    I just don’t know where people get off trying to tell other people what to do and how to feel. You must have been much too nice previously. I’m a stubborn bitch (mouthy, too!) and no one tried to tell me we were doing it wrong. I’m sorry that everyone is trying to tell you what to do and how to feel.

    The service should be as you wish, you should cremate if that’s what you want. My baby was so small that all the urns we looked at were much too big or horribly sappy (we don’t go for little beds, cutesy angels, or anything frilly). I found the perfect urn at an online store, of all places. It’s beautiful and a fraction of the price of the ones the mortuary wanted to sell us. And yeah, we totally went with the mortuary that only charged us like 10% of what they would normally charge. It’s bad enough that your child has died when you weren’t expecting it, but the financial slap is too much.

    I would just tell all the people that it isn’t about them. Your grief will go on it’s own timeline and screw them if they don’t understand. I’m glad you’ve disengaged. You don’t need their negative energy and ill will in your life. If they don’t get it, you don’t need them.

    Maybe a dart board with their photos covering the board? Little voodoo dolls?

  504. coffeehoar says:

    Amy, I can’t believe anyone would give you any grief over the funeral choices for YOUR son? I’d cut them out, too.

    I guess I was lucky. I chose to have my son cremated, too, by a place that was free. We ended up donating a coffin to the next parents that couldn’t afford it because the funeral home was so amazingly compassionate to us. We also decided to have his ashes buried between his grandparents (just made me feel better about him being “held” by them) but since it wasn’t a “sanctioned” spot by the cemetary (we weren’t buying the spot, it was just between the graves) we couldn’t have an official ceremony. NO ONE complained. We just asked that people show up and say goodby in their own time.

    Hugs to you. You are not alone.

  508. sissy hankshaw says:

    507, 508 What do they expect? you went through a life changing experience, of course you changed. If you grew away from them they should realize they weren’t helping you with whatever they were saying to you. I lost two last year and i remember wanting everyone to just stfu for awhile and leave me alone. Nothing they said helped. Now I feel lucky enough to have a family that realized this and were simply there. My mom never gave up but she never was judgemental, she was just full of that “god’s will” crap. Sorry if that comes out wrong but the last thing I wanted to hear was that it was meant to happen and that it was gods will. I just wanted my babies back.

    We found a beautiful urn for ours, nice simply and white. We didn’t have a service though. One of my Aunts wanted to throw one for us and for some reason that made me upset. Why would I want to go to a gathering with a bunch of relatives I see once a year at the lowest point of my life? It seemed too much like a party also. I got a little hysterical actually when presented with the idea. I can’t imagine what I’d have felt like with the added pressure of friends and family also being judgmental of me. My mom was pretty much like “ok, so that’s a no then”.

    My parents did put a lovely fountain and koi pond in their yard with a plaque. It was I will say perfect. I’m lucky enough to have a dad that knew i wouldn’t want to grieve around everyone.

    509 Sala agree with everything you just said. You voiced exactly how I felt about it being god’s will. Fuck that, sorry but that’s how I felt. It’s something that just happens sometimes, hearing it was “gods will” only upset me more. It’s total BS that someone tells you when they don’t know what else to say. I’d just prefer someone express their regret and sorrow that it happened, don’t tell me it was meant to be. The truth is it happened by chance, something went wrong and now I don’t get to ever know my boy’s. Let me wallow in self pity and angst for awhile and then I’ll move on. Nothing anyone can say will take the hurt from a mother who has lost her child. Only time will take the sting away.

    I wish I could hug you both. I’m just now letting myself even think about it again. It really does suck more than anything I can imagine.

    I love the clip. so funny.

  509. mamaton says:

    Amy, It’s not childish or selfish for you to want to do your own greiving in YOUR OWN TIME. It’s sad that they are the suck and that you have to deal with it from your own family. I’d sooo bring the broken beer bottle and some vaseline. 🙂

  510. Flat Stainley says:

    vaseline? :headscratch: Shed some light on that for me, please? 🙂

    The giraffe rocks!

    I have a lump in throat just reading what you mamas have been through. It is so sad! I would not know what to say, but you better believe I would not get verbal diarreha and start losing it on the grieving. A shitstorm is not the remedy for such a loss.

    Amy, I’m glad you are taking a step back from those who cause you pain.

    I had to do that with my own mama when she told me she just couldn’t get mad at my childhood sexual abuser. I haven’t seen her in 8 years. She tried to play it like it was my abuser who was causing all this pain to our family, and that by my allowing the silence to continue I was allowing him to hurt everyone more. Totally not it. It is about feeling safe again and not allowing others to hurt me in the negative things they say. To top it all off, my brother went and killed himself this last summer in an attempt to bring us together again. Fail. Does that make me heartless?

  511. Amygamie says:

    vaseline? You trying to mess up my prefolds? 😛 lol I don’t get that part, maybe it went over my head or am I too young to get it

    It is funny why do people think that a people who went through such a thing wants to hear everyone evaluate her life and her loss for her. But for some reason people think that is what the sad person wants to hear.

    513- that is how I felt too because I am not a religious person, I am not of any religion, I have my own personal beliefs and there isn’t any religion I fit into and I don’t like organized religion, so it really just irks me when religion and personal beliefs come up because everyone assume I believe the same as them.

    Hearing that it would ever be anyone’s will let alone this angry god will for all of that to happen is gonna cheer me up?! AHhhh! Maybe it wouldn’t of been that bad when they all did it except for the fact that I clearly expressed that to them and they still ignored me! When you have IRL trolls they jump at opprutinities like that… so now they are on my IGNORE/BLOCK list as you would say. Next step would be to delete facebook account. Fuck it, that thing is evil and brings way too many people into my life that shouldn’t be. :/ 😀

  512. sissy hankshaw says:

    no,no,no. I understand that reaction. Everyone deals with pain and loss in their own way. Some internalize it, and some let it all hang out for show. Neither way is right or wrong. I’d never assume someone was heartless for being more blunt and upfront about the outcome. There’s no need to pretty something so ugly up. The truth oftens sucks, someone has to be the one to say it though. I’d be so angry if one of my brothers did that, that doesn’t mean I’d love them less.

  513. sissy hankshaw says:

    I got the vaseline reference, but I’m not explainin if you don’t know lol.

  514. mamaton says:

    lol vaseline to cover your face for a fight so that punches slide off instead of making a hard connection- like boxers use. 🙂 LOL

  515. Flat Stainley says:

    518- Oh, I think I get it now, lol. Ouch!

  516. Flat Stainley says:

    519-That is not what I was thinking, but it makes sense. 😀

  517. mamaton says:

    ROFL it was NOT to help that broken beer bottle slide either… if that’s what the thought was.

    Have you ever seen the movie White Girls (Wayans Bros)? There’s a reference to vaseline in a fight torwards the end of that movie.

  518. Amygamie says:

    lol 522- that was more along the lines I was thinking of and I was confused too :/

    519- that makes much more sense 🙂

  519. Flat Stainley says:

    522-haha, you can read where my mind was going. I haven’t seen that movie, but even if I had, I probably wouldn’t remember it. My mind doesn’t retain details of shows very easily at all! Probably my self-proclaimed ADD working against me, lol.

  520. sissy hankshaw says:

    516 yep. that’s how i felt too. My answer was if it’s god’s will then I’m about to really offend you with my answer to that. I actually think I did say in my darkest hour then F*** god to my mother. I’m not religous, but my mom is, I know that made her especially worried for me but even then she just backed off and waited. i don’t know when it happened but i promise it does get better. it never goes away but you get numb to it after awhile. Sometimes the feelings will come up and it’ll hurt again but life goes on.

    Ok, so my husband gave me a beer to enjoy and i know this isn’t what I need to be thinking about or I’ll soon be crying in my cup. My good wish’s go out to you and all the ladies here.

  524. Sala says:

    I very much preferred when people said “I’m sorry, I have no words,” than when they made an attempt a lot of the time. Even the “Dude, that blows,” we got from a not very wordy (but phD’d friend) was better.

    I really appreciated the people who shared their losses, many of whom really never had been able to share with others. Especially the women who’d had miscarriages – like theirs was a lesser loss in the eyes of society and they’d never felt welcome to grieve before – I was happy to mourn their losses with them as they did with me.

    It’s a pain that stays with you, that’s for sure. Heck, one woman from my church couldn’t bring herself to say anything to me until some 5 months afterwards when she shared that her first child had died a couple days after his birth some 30+ years ago. She still couldn’t talk about him without crying.

    Wow that likeness is uncanny!
    I agree with other people as far as whats appropriate to say. I have a friend who has had multiple losses and we have talked a few times about it and I’ve explained why I don’t say much about it is because I’m afraid I will say the absolute wrong thing and upset her and really what can you say in that situation? I acknowledge it and leave it at that and make sure they know if they need to vent or cry, I am there.

  529. It’s A Snap AKA BanHammer/ misfitmom@gmail.com says:

    I am sorry for all the mamas who have experienced losses whether early losses or after the birth. It is the hardest thing I ever experienced and I would not wish it on anyone. Hugs to all who have had to endure the loss of a child. My husband lost a 3 year old to meningistis before I met him and my heart absolutely broke for him.

  530. DSDM2 says:

    Snatch, we don ‘t want you here. You have caused a lot of trouble for these women, and any sympathy you send to people is fake and just another ploy to hurt them, you are not welcome here. Leave.

    ahahaha, I have pissed someone off. I just got a nasty PM. That is a first!

  532. Sala says:

    DSDM2, while this is your playground and you are of course free to determine who is welcome and who is not, please don’t strip Snap’s humanity from her by decreeing that her experience and feelings are false. Any family who has suffered a loss will be affected, regardless of any individual’s less than moral business practices.

    Like she said, it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever endured and I too wouldn’t wish it on anyone, trolls and scammers included. No one should know that pain. Perhaps her experiences are not welcome here because of her past but if they are real, sharing them does not automatically make them a ploy or untrue.

  533. DSDM2 says:

    Her MO is to come here, gain sympathy, and then hurt people, it is what she has done in the past and I don’t trust her.

  535. It’s A Snap AKA BanHammer/ misfitmom@gmail.com says:

    Thanks Sala.

    DSDM2 I was not asking for sympathy nor was I trying to hurt anyone. I was only sharing a common experience. I have had losses myself but was blessed with a gorgeous son later. There is hope after miscarriage or still birth. If I was wanting sympathy do you really think this is the place I would turn to? Really?

  536. DSDM2 says:

    Snap, I am asking you to leave. You have multiple UNs here, you are a scammer, thief, and unwelcome. LEAVE.

    No one even mentioned your name and you have a history of coming back to places you are unwelcome. Each time you come off attacking someone for something seemingly innocent.

    Lexy is offering her wonderful parenting opinions.. but it is OK for her to do– because the OP asked.

  549. mamaton says:

    Yeah- let the kid cry for who knows how long because he doesn’t have a cup at all instead of weaning him off slowly. What a winner…that Lexy

  550. smartassmama says:

    Well but of course! Because a two year old with a sippy cup is just one step away from a bottle, right around te corner from a paci, & not too far removed from those pesky one ear olds who’re still on the tit! Didn’t you know?

  551. Redhead says:

    Why would someone so cruel want more kids? Doesn’t make sense.

  552. Just Peachy says:

    Mine takes a sippy to bed sometimes too. Damn I must be like the worst parent EVAH! It cracks me up because its not that easy. My 3 year old used to throw a fit if she couldn’t have her sippy, her binky, AND her polly pocket in bed with her. The only thing that is helping us wean her from her night time sippy is the fact she loves wearing pull ups (gasp yes I use pull ups *hide*)and I refuse to risk her soaking thru because she had too much to drink.

  553. me says:

    If you were a good mommy the kid wouldn’t do anything but look at you saying “No.” and immediately lay down quietly to sleep dontchaknow!

  554. Mmspirit7 says:

    Amy,

    I read your sorry on DS it touched me. My Aunt lost a daughter in a similar yet different way. I am so sorry for loss. But something you said stuck out to me. I wouldn’t call you childless….you had/have a child he’s just not living anymore and that’s sad and hurtfull but you are still and will always be his mama.

    I felt the need to tell you that you are still a mama and are not childless, even though he was here for so little of time, he was still here and doesn’t need to be forgotten or anything. He’s still your son. I hope I don’t sound so preachy it isn’t what I mean to. I don’t know….hugs mama

  555. Just Peachy says:

    In response to Its a Snap, the only time your name is mentioned is when you try to reappear on boards you have been banned on. Your name was mentioned quite recently on here because you came back yet again on DS AND CDN where you are not welcome. Get a fucking clue.

  556. mamaton says:

    Sooo, I just joined CDN, and I have to admit that I’m a bit confused. :blush: but I’m sure that I’ll figure it out soon 🙂

  557. amessymama says:

    What are you confused about? I see a lot of people say that and I don’t know what they mean.

  558. insomniac says:

    I suspect itsasnap is resurfacing because of this:
    http://hyenacart.com/itsasnap/index.php?viewall=1
    which I am blown away by. Love that the old feedback did not get attached.

  559. DSDM2 says:

    All that is needed is for someone to let Karen know.

  560. BabyBrain says:

    “twatwafflery”…LMAO!

    And Snap Snatch – I’m new here – dont know the scoop, but WHY would you want to continue hanging at a place where no one wants you? That in itself is trollish.

  561. DSDM2 says:

    She is banned from HC, CDN, and DS for her twatwafflery, scamming, and coming back under multiple UNs.

    Karen would be very interested in knowing she is back and “hiding” her FB.

  562. It's A Snap AKA BanHammer/ misfitmom@gmail.com AKA Teacup AKA MarnasMahem says:

    Not hiding my feedback. It is posted on my cart and I am asking that it be placed back on my cart in the appropriate place if possible. I am the one that asked to have my cart removed last year.

  563. mamaton says:

    570- I think I’ve figured out how to navigate around there. It always takes me a few days of scouring before I finally “get” it with a new site.

  564. Redhead says:

    That’s an ugly pillowcase if I ever saw one.

  565. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    575- You are so full of lies. Not only did Karen remove it, but when you joined a congo under an alias, the entire congo was shut down when you were found out.

  566. Deviate – you think you know what happened but you do not. Rikki invited me to the congo, knew who I was and all the issues as I linked her to CDN and the Hyena Cart forums concerning me. I was up front with her but I don’t think she told Hope. Hope made the decision to take the cart down. It wasn’t shut down by Karen.

    Karen did NOT take down my cart. I requested it and it was done the same day.

    Now if you really want to help get my old feedback listed where it should be, I need my old vendor ID or a link to my feedback. Hyena Cart support is asking for it and I don’t have it. Didn’t save the link or vendor ID stuff though I did save a text version.

  567. organicmomma says:

    577-agreed! I opened the link and went eeeeggghhh…

    Re: New study supports exclusive breastfeeding for first six months!
    This post really shouldn’t be here…and these debates are exactly why there are two different sections for formula feeding and breastfeeding…but, I just have to say that this isn’t a ‘new’ study…they’ve researched this for years and shown benefits to a baby being breastfed for 6+++ months so making it sound like this is some profound new finding is a little off.

    For us, breastfeeding didn’t work. I have hypoplastic breast tissue as well as I am on a host of medications for depression, anxiety, and a profound heart murmur so between not making near enough milk due to the tissue and the fact that my medications weren’t supposed to be taken by breastfeeding mothers it just didn’t work. Our son ended up having some pretty severe reactions to formula even though we tried them ALL it seemed. Nutrimigen worked best, but even with that he had some pretty severe (aka bleeding and peeling) rashes he would get. It was awful and I wouldn’t want anyone’s family to go through that. He also took donor breast milk which is a wonderful thing, but comes with its own host of issues (and honestly if my son was able to take formula without being in pain from bleeding rashes I would have RATHER had him on formula than donor milk). Donor milk isn’t easy to find, its not at all affordable to purchase ($4 an ounce plus shipping!), its really time consuming to pick up milk from local donors houses all the time…if you can even find a local donor, its not always easy to keep track of which milk needs to be used first, the bags always seem to leak, not to mention there are (sometimes) issues that arise with the donors themselves. Most of our donors were awesome and we love love love them, but there were a couple that were just too hard to deal with. Its much easier to pick up a few cans of formula when you’re grocery shopping then drive all over town getting donor milk so yeah, I would have rather used formula. So grateful that we were able to get donor milk though.

    I just don’t think things like this should be debated on here because every one of us is trying to do the best we can for our own families. What my child eats is my business, no one else’s. As long as he is eating and healthy, no one should try to pressure anything on me (general me). And if a woman IS having issues with breastfeeding, how about offering her tips on how to fix the issues surrounding it or a shoulder to cry on in tough times, that would surely help a lot more than an article with the same old tired facts being quoted over and over. We’ve all heard it before.

    583- Wow, I dare say she just confirmed exactly who she is. Anybody report her dealings and proof of it all to H2BAM yet? Not that she’ll ACTUALLY do anything about it, just like the object of the OP, but it should be brought to her attention if it hasn’t already.

  570. DSDM2 says:

    That is untrue snap. You stole people’s patterns and hard work, and bashed them trying to ruin them when it was undeserved. That is scamming.

  571. smartassmama says:

    It needs to be reported, but it won’t be me. I even reported it to someone other than h2bamod. Still ended up being her call (about this blog subject). And what a win judgment call that was.

  572. Not true DSDM2. I was accused of doing those things but I certainly did not. If I bashed someone, they had it coming based on their own behavior.

  573. sissy hankshaw says:

    Sorry, I just don’t see it. I just read through Erin12345’s thread and I don’t see definite proof MM is her. Maybe I’m wrong, can someone point out the clues for me please.

  574. DSDM2 says:

    You did do it. Even right down to the shopping cart cover in your current PB from your account on DS. Oh yeah, I figured you out there too. Just wait for the… what is the term you used? “BanHammer”.

    I’m not an idiot, and neither are any of these women reading.

    Know what I call my hubby when we’re teasing each other? Snap Head. He didn’t care until I told him the definition. It’s like a black head, but instead of…well, THAT stuff, the snap has OTHER stuff in it, as in #2. Haha! So whenever he’s fibbing, or being a brat, that’s his name.

    591- BalinsMommy is the seller.

  582. Flat Stainley says:

    595-Buyer paid for diapers, was promised them, and seller never shipped. Buyer contacted seller and seller said she has misplaced them. Buyer asked for a refund, seller agreed, then stopped responding to messages. Buyer filed through PayPal and got her money back that way.

    When you’re banned you can’t see FB, so I couldn’t tell who it was.

    598: Thanks. The list of idiots out there just seems endless. (Meaning the scammy seller, not the buyer.)

  586. Flat Stainley says:

    Question: How does everybody keep track of the rotten sellers? Do you actually have a list of Do Not B/S/T on DS, or do you keep one at home? My son eats or shreds most lists I leave on the computer desk. 🙂

  589. Redhead says:

    589-if you scroll up, there is a post comparing them on here..

    604 too true.

    agree #604.

    sorry if duplicate, having computer issues.

  592. CJ says:

    Is Oh Snap the same person as It’s A Snap on here or is that Oh Snap USA?

  593. DSDM2 says:

    604 doesn’t match either IP.

  594. Clam Kick says:

    604, 607 no shit, about time someone busted her lying ass

  595. Redhead says:

    cdmom?

  596. sissy hankshaw says:

    605 I’ve read them all, still don’t see it. I’ve seen where people have tied MM/kelsey to her other accounts on photobucket etc as kelseyeb. But nothing in Erin12345 thread implicates her as this Kelseyeb person other than they both seem to have issues. I just don’t think the jury is in on this one yet. I’m not trying to be argumentative or anything, I just don’t see it and don’t want to see false accusations thrown around. It would only give anyone who doesn’t agree with this blog ammunition in the future.

  597. cdmom says:

    i knw i was always right but everyone cried oh no we like deviate. well well well looks like the truth always comes out in the wash, that is the expression i thnk

  598. Redhead says:

    Erin’s stories match a lot of MM’s.

    The apartment, the jobs, the childs age.

  599. Redhead says:

    613, what are you even talking about?

  600. amessymama says:

    I think cdmom is having a conversation with herself.

    Unfortunately, she’s choosing to share it with the rest of us.

  601. sissy hankshaw says:

    614 I see that, you could be right absolutely. I just think the similarities are too common, the only way to really prove it is with IP’s. I’d be more convinced if we could find out if the e in Kelsyeb stands for Erin. Of course I’ve only been posting on these sights for a short time so I don’t have the practice at sniffing this stuff out like you ladies do.

  602. Redhead says:

    616, she does that often. The people in white coats must have let her out for a little play time. Better get her medication and put her back to bed…

  603. DSDM2 says:

    The IPs for cdmom and the others are from different locations, and are not blockers.

  604. Redhead says:

    How far apart are they location wise?

  605. DSDM2 says:

    halfway across the country

  606. Redhead says:

    Could it be an IP scrambler? I have heard of people using them.

  607. Rylee's_Mommy AKA that_girl (AKA LMAO) says:

    I’m with you on this one Sissy Hankshaw…I am a Portland mom myself and there are a ton of people here who cloth diaper and tons who have kids around the same age and tons who live in crappy apartments. Just because the erin girl has a kid the same age as MM and lives in a bad apartment doesn’t mean they are the same person. Heck, we live in an apartment and have a 17 month old and cloth diaper so if that is all the criteria it takes to be Erin than I could be her too. I’m not Erin, but I just think the info is tooooo common. If she said she lived in like middle-of-nowhere where no one CD’ed and was on diaperswappers then yeah it would be more obvious, but the location part is what throws me to think its not the same person. Its portland, most people I know live in apartments, lots of people have kids the same age and lots of people CD, lots of people have step-kids, lots of people have relationship problems, etc. Its a big city.

  619. mamaton says:

    Count me in for “the lost”

  620. organicmomma says:

    What i do know though is that DSDM said snap go away, you cause drama and snap said….No i don’t…blah, blah, blah…but look…drama caused by snap…snippity snap, snap-a-roo…

  621. sissy hankshaw says:

    from what i gather we are all supposed to believe deviate is a liar because this Oh snap person said she was with no explaination. then more random people chimed in that they agree and that she was “busted”, yet still no explaination other than she is calling out It’s a snap on her feed back. did i miss something?

  622. organicmomma says:

    i agree..redhead…

  623. sissy hankshaw says:

    635 this is probably a more accurate summary lol.

  624. Redhead says:

    OM is right. DSDM2 told Snap to leave because she causes drama, and lookie what happened?

    I say next time they try harder, because that was rather dull. I always love a good juicy story to prove is a fake.

  625. organicmomma says:

    639-that you do…

    I go to the Cracker Barrel and I get back to what, Greek? LOL

    I think I understand now though. 🙂

    I can assure you I’m not cdmom or the others.

    Um. Erin never said she was from Portland. . .
    know something we don’t?

  629. Just Peachy says:

    WTF do you super sneaky bitches got to say about Deviate hmmm? If you got something share with the rest of the class instead of being twatwaffles. I sincerely doubt they have shit and just wanna stir up trouble because they have nothing better to do than be jack asses anonymously.

  630. Redhead says:

    Yeah, 623.. ‘fess up.

  631. Oh Snap says:

    Deviate is a lying lunatic. It doesnt get more clearcut than that.

  632. Redhead says:

    Wow, that is so clear and informative. Thanks! I really feel like I have learned something today, what about everyone else?

  633. Just Peachy says:

    What proof do you have? Where exactly has she lied and showed her crazy???

  634. Rylee's_Mommy says:

    644. Kelsey lives in Portland, and so do I. I was just saying that if the things that prove she’s erin are just the apartment and same age kid then it pretty much describes me too. Lots of people are in similar boats. She’s not the only person with a kid that age, not the only person with an apartment, not the only person with step-kids etc. I’ve been watching this thread because I sort of (kind of, she’s a friend of a friend) know Kelsey and from everything I’ve seen she is a normal person. I’ve even met her husband and her son (briefly, but I have met them) and they seem normal too. Obviously appearances can be deceiving and I could be off base, but there are definitely parts of the erin story that don’t add up to kelsey just from what I’ve seen of her when I’ve been around her and things I’ve seen on her facebook and whatnot.

    And i don’t know who deviate is…?

  635. Redhead says:

    *crickets*

    I’m betting one of them comes back with a really informative “Deviate is a LIAR!! End of story!!”.

  636. organicmomma says:

    um, yeah, let’s hear it….we know why you are a lying lunatic, so, let’s hear it…what cha’ got?

  637. Just Peachy says:

    :popcorn:
    Guess I was right hmmmmm?

  638. coffeehoar says:

    So Snap says Deviate is a liar, then cdmom and looking and lurking come in to concur, but then offer no explanation?

    What their connection, reasoning, or orbit is, we have no clue…

    That was speshul.

  639. Redhead says:

    While others may similarities to her- what are the odds that Kelsey/Erin’s DH both lost the same-paying job at the same time and both live in a crappy apartment which also has neighbors being raided by police normally, have their stuff in storage..have a douchebag DH who only goes to school & doesn’t work, with the same aged son, & the DH has step kids around the same age.. oh, and both Kelsey and Erin have long hair. Aside from that, Erin wanted to abort her son and Kelsey/MM has said she has had a previous abortion and considered it when she was pregnant. MM doesn’t appear to love her son very much, her posts are not written in a sweet maternal tone.

    Way too many similarities in my book for these people to be completely different entities.
    We already know Erin is another DS member- add that to the list & my almost positive guess is she is Maverick’sMama.

    But, since you know her.. is she a compulsive liar like others who know her have said?

  640. Redhead says:

    Coffeehoar, you missed the part where Rylee’s Mommy came on saying she is “friends” with Kelsey/MM after (oops) saying that Erin lives in Portland and we shouldn’t see a connection between the 3 of them (Kelsey/MM/Erin). Speshul indeed.

    This has been a most eventful day, and I am quite out of popcorn.

  641. Oh Snap says:

    Hey 651 or should I address you as TangerineFlamingo, you have it all figured out, hey? No explanation necessary, the only one who it matters to that she’s gonna get sold out is Megan. So STFU and go back to your Etsy store.

  642. Redhead says:

    Everyone here knows who I am. Not like you’re smart or anything.

  643. coffeehoar says:

    Ooops! Like the time my daughter wrote her name on the bathroom wall in pen and then wrote “not” next to and above it.

    So we’d know it wasn’t her. *snort*

  644. Oh Snap says:

    A lot smarter than you think 😉

  645. Redhead says:

    Right….. I have yet to see proof, but please, keep blowing your horn of smartness. We’re impressed, really.

  646. CJ says:

    Thanks for outing her. I just added her to my faves. 🙂

  647. coffeehoar says:

    I have this image that Snaps is really Obama in hiding, and we’re all in for a BIG SURPRISE. That wink smiley has to mean something huge, guys.

  648. Redhead says:

  649. Redhead says:

    663- NO WAY! Is she/he the antichrist too? Because that is what every tells me. Amazing! Maybe she is waiting until she can post the truth at # 666 for dramatic effect!?!?!?!

  650. coffeehoar says:

    Oooh, let’s get her there and then watch for the revelation! I have my stores of food and apocalypse knitting all ready.

  651. Rylee's_Mommy says:

    I don’t know Kelsey well enough to say whether she’s a liar, I’ve been around her in social situations though and she seems very nice. And she seems to adore her son too, hes a sweet little guy. I don’t feel comfortable posting everything I know about her on here for everyone to read and its not my place anyway, I just know that from what I know of her it doesn’t add up. I could be wrong, certainly wouldn’t be the first time in my life I’ve been wrong, but I’m just not quite buying it.

    I’m leaving work now so won’t be back until tomorrow. Have a nice night everyone!

  652. coffeehoar says:

    Shit. I ruined it.

  653. Redhead says:

    goshdarnit!

  657. eeek says:

    Deviate was incorrect in her assumption that IAS left because she was banned from selling, IAS closed up shop before action could be taken against her. The congo shut down because they were so horrified by being associated with IAS they wanted as far away as possible.

    It’s easy to think she left because she was kicked off, BECAUSE SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN KICKED OFF LONG BEFORE. She was a rather horrible person, who had multiple stores and multiple user names. All of them bitter, creepy personas. Her stuff seemed fine, the issue was just how she treated others.

    Thinking IAS was removed doesn’t make Deviate a liar, it makes her someone who made logical jumps when there was no logic in the situation at all.

    Didn’t something happen with Deviate a few months ago? Something about a poorly sewn dress, maybe? I can’t remember…

    If you want to discuss that you’ll need to come up with better examples than her believing IAS was kicked off, because most people believed that. In a good and just world HC would have kicked IAS off long before for her creeptasticality.

It is obvious you are not wanted here. We said you would cause drama and now you are. You didn’t hurt or out anyone. It was meerly funny, because most of us already know who redhead is, so…OooOoooOOOOo…..Seriously, did you graduate high school a long time ago, or are you stuck in it? Take your shotty diapers, your multiple user names and your crappy stores and go.

  664. Mmspirit7 says:

    Really snap if you have proof to what you say then back it up in not then go away or shut up. really just repeating yourself over and over makes you sound like my 4 yo when he doesn’t get is way.

  665. smartassmama says:

    Well she got what she came here for. Maybe She needs to be treated Like that other twat who tries to shit in our playground. Ignored?

    I did giggle about the ‘go back to your etsy store’ moment. Sea cooler than you because she’s on HC, & you’ve just got.piddly little etsy. LOL Like she’s got Malibu Barbie & yours is the dollar store brand. But poor me, I have neither! I’m the epitome of uncool to snap! I shall find a hole to cry in.

  666. Messy says:

    :::sniffing around::: Been gone a while :::waving hi everyone!!!:::
    Do I smell a Dirty Snatch? I heard it was Christmas over here!!! 😀

  667. organicmomma says:

    So ladies..Do anything fun today? Find any good drama?

  668. Messy says:

    So… Forgive me that I cannot read this whole thread. In the middle is a convo going on that most know I cannot handle. Sorry… I had to skip to the bottom of the box to find my toy 🙂
    So, Snatchy Dear, how have you been? Tell me all about your pathetic self!!! It will take me a bit to get these pesky strings back on you, but soon you will be busy dancing to my tune…
    I lubs it bunches when the stinky bitch comes out of her cave!!!
    Don’t be scaring off my Christmas toy!!! There are so few people in the world that I can feel good being so absolutely shitty to 😀

  669. mamaton says:

    677- then show us the PROOF!!!!!! PLEASE show me something that PROVES it, instead of some bs about her jumping to conclusions about something that SHOULD have happened long before it actually did. It all means SHIT if you don’t show me the PROOF!!!

  670. smartassmama says:

    Cool? Not really. FML? Yes.
    Meant to leave home for vacation at 8:30. Woke up at. . .8. Left town at noon. And I have a slight headache, going over Monteagle. Woohoo.

  671. DSDM2 says:

    You realize Oh Snap is not It’s a Snap, right? Although that twat is here too… lurking now that we pointed out we know who she is…

  672. Messy says:

    #687 Thanks for pointing that out. I was wondering if it was me who was confused (thinking they were NOT the same) or if it was others 🙂 I been gone way too long…

  673. smartassmama says:

    WB Messy!

  674. DSDM2 says:

    Glad you came to join the fun Messy 🙂

  675. Mmspirit7 says:

    Messy I had been gone to long as well.

  676. smartassmama says:

    Well, remind me to not use the word snap in a business name, should I ever get crafty.

  677. Redhead says:

    677, whatever. You’ve posted no proof of anything and think you’re something speshul with your “she’s a lying, crazy nut job” comments and thinking you outed me . Just, go find the asylum where your friends are, you’re boring us all.
    I can give you a gold star sticker for the “biggest idiot of the day” contest if you want… but I’d rather not waste a cute sticker on you.
    Hugs and kisses!

  678. DSDM2 says:

    For those that asked, yes deviate was featured here a few months ago.

  679. Munklettes says:

    Holy shit, 682. Messy, you made me spit out a mouthful of cereal so i wouldn’t choke to death laughing 😀

  680. BffMama says:

    Messy, how did I know snatch would bring you out of the woodwork. 🙂 WB hope the babe is doing great and the rest of the fam is, too.

  681. organicmomma says:

    But that makes her crazy? I still can’t find what she did…

  682. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    To be honest, none of this surprises me. No, I am not a liar, nor a lunatic. I made one mistake in my last 3+ years of WAHMing, and actually corrected it long before a hurrah was made about it, but the buyer failed to mention that. She chose to soak up the “poor you’s” without mentioning her full refund and more, plus the extenuating circumstances she placed me in. Is there an excuse for a quick, bang-up job anyway? No. I should have told her I couldn’t do it instead of trying to make it work. All of this was shown, as well as proof that I went above and beyond to make it right in response to her initial email, long before I even knew it was on the blog. That is the one and only thing anyone has against me.
    I will say, however, that these people coming to try and bash me have nothing to do with that situation, and everything to do with a stalker and her attempts to befriend my friends(and try to turn them against me) and those who aren’t my biggest fans, and their high school fun at mine and my family’s expense. They will not stop as long as you give them attention. They have no proof of anything, only rumors started by a mentally-ill liar herself. They will just continue to berate me for anything I do and say. Please don’t give them the time of day. If they had something legitimate, they’d show it immediately, thinking it was the ultimate nail in my coffin. They don’t, so I’m doing my best to keep my family and our lives private so they have no fuel to this childish game. Eventually every fire with no fuel fizzles out.

  683. CJ says:

    What is with grown women being nasty stalkers? There seems to be a lot of this going around lately.

  684. werd says:

    what.the.fuck?!

    Mmmmk… Deviate is a dear IRL friend of mine, I’ve hung out with her, and I assure you all, she is not a nut, nor a liar. She is an absolute doll.

  685. Flat Stainley says:

    698- :werd: That’s one thing I say is sad about this blog. There’s no shining moment for those WAHMs whose names get dragged through the mud who have gone above and beyond what’s neccessary to redeem their mistakes. Kinda unfortunate, IMO.

  686. DSDM2 says:

    If people read the thread with Deviate in it, they would see her responses and how she handled it. Same goes with a lot of the WAHMs. There is ample opportunity to change the view point here.

  687. žába says:

    Hey Snap, what is your point of even being here you shit stirring snot rocket. Don’t you have some other WAHM to rip off? If you have something to say about Megan then say it and be done. I personally don’t think you have anything other that your own special brand of crazy to spew, so just be gone.

  688. Redhead says:

    HEY!! Look at:
    (note- I just saw 135, must have been approved later or something)
    Post 135.
    Then check out post 623.
    After that enjoyable vacation, please take a look at post 650
    and swing on over by 667.

    Notice WHERE (and what we’re discussing) she drops in and how she accuses us of sitting on our fat butts doing nothing but chit-chatting about drama that has nothing to do with us.

    I think ‘Erin’ has come to visit us!

    So “Erin”, so many questions to ask.. where to start?!

  689. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    701- I showed screen shots here of exactly what I did to make it right, and left it at that. Should anyone want to drag up my name again, there is proof that all was made right, and the buyer was less-than-honest. There are just certain people (or person, rather) who has never laid eyes on my work who continues to bash me about it. Like I said, these insulters here have nothing to do with that.

  690. theinvisible says:

    True, there is no redeeming moment, but in this case many of us know the players well enough. I’ve been around for a few years and I can say that reputation counts for a hell of a lot. In other words, Megan has nothing to worry about. It didn’t even occur to me to think bad of her based on some random comments from someone who’s reputation in this community is MUD.

  691. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    DSDM2, please check your email.

  692. me says:

    Snap, if you weren’t banned from selling (as most of us thought because of your morals or lack thereof) then being banned multiple times from a bunch of forums for the same reason must means something, right?

  693. sissy hankshaw says:

    704 yep, that is interesting. She came on as LMAO being very bitchy then changed to rylee’s mommy acting like an unbiased observer. hmmmm. Why would she do that?

  694. sissy hankshaw says:

    705 as an outside observer it seems like someone is just jealous they don’t have the people skills to make a mistake and then smooth it over successfully like you do.

  695. Redhead says:

    709, she is trying to cover her tracks. She IS Maverick’s Mommy, Kelsey and Erin, And now she has A LOT of explaining to do for her craptastic/trollastic “Erin12345” post.

  696. insomniac says:

    omg I am late to the party Messy brought but I just almost spit my drink everywhere laughing at post 684 …holy crap that was golden.

    Messy FTW!

  697. sourpatchbabe says:

    @ 657 wow, your awesome powers of deductions are astounding me! Can you figure out who I am on DS next? Or maybe you can bring in the newspaper in the morning? Can you read minds (like in the fiber one commercial where the lady thinks Mehta is reading her mind)?

    My sister told me to tell you this:

    Felicidades, se ha ganado dos pelucas. Una para su cabeza, y otra para su cuca*. (Congratulations, you have won two wigs. One for your head, and one for you snatch**

    *cuca is snatch in Spanish
    **wigs are not interchangeable, may be substituted for a swift kick in the liver.

  698. sourpatchbabe says:

    Darn! I forgot the closing parenthesis! That’s gonna irk me.

  699. smartassmama says:

    Ah. Just got caught up on the that girl/Rylee’s Mom/lmao jazz. I totally love the original ‘raise your kids’ line. An fat asses? From the girl reported to have a ginormous one herself? I think my favorite one was when she said she had to leave for work. Since Kelsey doesn’t work, That’s supposed to be our shining proof that she’s not her. Awe. Speshul. Everything else, I’m not caught up on. 🙂

  700. mamaton says:

    713- LMAO

    It’s gotta be her…maybe someone clued her in that we’re onto her over here and she had to come join the party.

  701. Redhead says:

    713/715: LOL

  702. Ahavati says:

    713 – LOL!

  703. Amygamie says:

    713- haha, the next one to come along here can out the both of us and MMP, that would take the work of a true genius. 🙂

  704. Redhead says:

    Wait, Amy.. you’re on DS too?! And Mothermoonpads and SourpatchBabe? No. Way.
    So.. what are your user names over there? :headscratch:

    I’ll just wait for Private-Investigator-Snap to “out” you..it is too hard for lowly, piddly-Etsy-store me.

  705. MotherMoonPads says:

    Now now, there’s no need to out who I am on DS or CDN (or HC or Etsy for that matter, lol!) 🙂

  706. sissy hankshaw says:

    I’m a genius. I think I’ve already cracked the case. It was a pretty difficult thing to do but but I figured you all out. haHA!

  707. MotherMoonPads says:

    Actually, I’m on the clueless couch here, I just dropped in on a sewing break & saw my name 🙂

  708. sourpatchbabe says:

    720, you’re not going to believe this but my UN on DS starts with an S and ends with a vowel.

  709. Redhead says:

    Starts with “S” and ends in a vowel? Hmm.. gosh..:thinking: …so hard!

    Slippy.. Slappy.. Ss..ss.. SAMSONITE!! That’s IT!

  710. mamaton says:

    LMAO!!!

  711. Pork Slapper says:

    You were way off!

  712. Redhead says:

    Crap, she’s unlisted!

  713. sciencefair says:

    Ooo, ooo, I wanna be outed by snatch! Please?

  714. sourpatchbabe says:

    Well I know for a fact that you’re either a lover of Science, a teacher of science, and/or a judge at a fair and/or a fair person.

    Am I close?

  715. sourpatchbabe says:

    Although I guess that you could be a fair judge at a science fair but where’s the fun in that?

  716. organicmomma says:

    I want to be outed by her too!!! Only on DS though…CDN is easy…

  717. Redhead says:

    Well to be fair to Snap, you need to out yourself first and then let her think she outed you- it makes her feel speshul and big.

  718. jeruco says:

    You should read snap’s policy page. That sure is some CS. “Returns only for gross defects and defects are only determined by me.” Geee that is great CS Snap.

  719. bittymomma says:

    Off topic, can any of you recommend a maker of cutesy embellished fleece soakers? 🙂

  720. organicmomma says:

    I’m pretty sure most know who i am. But it’d be fun for her to try..that would be stalker-iffic….

    bitty-there’s a mom on DS i think she has a hyenacart too…i can’t remember her name, but i’ll look around and let ya know!

  721. jeruco says:

    For embroidered fleece soakers go here: http://hyenacart.com/TweedlebeeTweedlebum/

  722. bittymomma says:

    and no matter how often I searched fleece, soaker, fleece soaker, etc, I never found that store! Thank you! If you know of any others please keep them coming. I only have 2 fleece soakers and I’m really in love with them, more so than my wool :blush:

  723. mamaton says:

    Sorry- the second link I posted- the WAHM is closed for customs for the summer. 😦 Guess I’ll have to wait till the fall to get dd a bunch of cute longies now. I’ve been saving up my pp so I can put in a big 1 time order rather than several small ones. Guess that’s what I get for waiting.

  725. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    Has anyone seen onDSDM2 around on YIM or anything? I know she hasn’t posted in a couple days, and I emailed her on a serious issue the other night that I haven’t heard back on. My crazy computer won’t load YIM, so email is the only way I can contact her. Boo.

  726. Redhead says:

    DSDM2 posted on here that the best way to contact her is through YIM, as she doesn’t check her email much.

    Hope you can get in touch with her!

  727. MotherMoonPads says:

    I can do embroidered fleece soakers & longies too 🙂

  728. JustMe says:

    MMP…beat me to the spam…I’m feeling some serious competition, here. LOL.

    (AKA, I can also do embroidered fleece items 😀 )

  729. Mmspirit7 says:

    She’s not on right now On YIM but do you have yahoo mail? you can im through that as well

  730. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    744- I do not, but Admin at CDN just contacted me about the situation. Thank you! 🙂

  731. Mmspirit7 says:

    Cool! good luck

  732. MotherMoonPads says:

    I think so 747. I PM’d her the link to Kookabums thread & told her to PM H2BAM

  733. DSDM2 says:

    Deviate I often am on YIM hidden 🙂 But I did get the email and it doesn’t match up to what you were asking.

  734. MotherMoonPads says:

    It is Kookabums. She posted in the thread I linked her too. I wonder how many people got screwed by her 😦

  735. Redhead says:

    H2BAM should feel bad for supporting her like she did then, that is crazy.

  736. werd says:

    saw that coming a mile away 😦 I just cannot fathom these WAHMs who take off with people’s money. How do they live with themselves???

  737. Pork Slapper says:

    So, what’s the name of angelique345’s ebay shop?

    http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1012463

  738. DSDM2 says:

    All those dealing with Kookabums needs to go to HC and leave FB to be put in her cart. http://hyenacart.com/feedback_view.php?vidn=2642

  739. MotherMoonPads says:

    How do we do that dsdm?

  740. Just Peachy says:

    If you are a member of the hc forums you can leave fb here http://hyenacart.com/phpbb/viewforum.php?f=21.
    I don’t see a thread already started for her so just start a new one.

  741. CJ says:

    I wish that they would put a link on the stores to the forum feedback threads so that shoppers know that another place exists.

  742. bittymomma says:

    739- that last link closed for customs earlier this month 😥 I’m sitting her drooling at her work!

  743. treeindawind says:

    post #223, WTH is wrong. Scorned much?

  744. sourpatchbabe says:

    Geez, I’d totally forgotten that Nick even existed anymore. All I remember about Nick is uniporn. Maybe not a good thing to associate him with, he was nice as far as I remember.

  745. treeindawind says:

    uniporn? Fill a sista in

  746. mamaton says:

    760- I noticed that and put in on 740 🙂 I love her stuff- can’t wait to get some winter pants for dd when she opens back up.

  747. DSDM2 says:

    Someone (or lots of you) need to report that thread for stalking/harassment. That user needs banned and her posts removed.

    Nick has his own side to all of that, she has tried posting here on the blog too, and I chose for hers to be the first posts I didn’t post on here b/c I didn’t see the value. She recently tried to post on Nick’s penis thread here. I talked to him and Mindy and we chose together to not post her craziness.

  748. DSDM2 says:

    http://hyenacart.com/kookabearkids/ here is another link on HC for Kookabum too.

  749. Redhead says:

    H2BAM shut it down.

  750. sissy hankshaw says:

    I’d hate to think of someone at google looking at my searches and wondering why I’m searching for uniporn.

  751. CJ says:

    What is up with Kookabum? She is takingorders and payment and not shipping?

    If that is the case, I think that the people purchasing from her should just email HC Support directly. The whole thing with IAS has brought to light that it is 3 unfulfilled transactions that will cause support to ban a seller. If she is taking money and not shipping out product, she needs to be reported.

  752. Redhead says:

    Ok, what is the uniporn story here..?

  753. sissy hankshaw says:

    seriously. anyone? uniporn? i’d also love to know. All I can think is that this guy Nick had a thing for unicorn erotica. The definitions on urban dictionary only made my curiosity worse.

  754. Amygamie says:

    772- oh noez. Urban dictionary makes me nervous. I overheard some junior high aged boys giggling about something called ‘metal dan’ and ‘boston pancakes’ making jokes about it and my curiosity led me to look it up on that site. Well, now I am scarred… mentally. Just the thought of that word makes my stomach hurt and my soul cry. 😦 And now I can only imagine how in the world did those words even enter their vocabulary.

  755. organicmomma says:

    Why does my ignore list on DS keep getting deleted? Wierd…and what’s with all the psycho yarn people asking outrageous prices for scraps and yarn they got as gifts? Sheesh…I just got chewed for asking for 5 bucks off if i took all the yarn she had…

  756. organicmomma says:

    I saw this unicorn thing the other day….

  757. amessymama says:

    Someone needs to tell this and the other women that got taken by KooKoobums that they can thank DS and all stupid POS that defended this idiot, mattress cover, walmart shop towel, diaper making idiot in the first place. If people would have just let the people share their negative experiences without crying that they were being mean to her, word may have gotten around that you should not give KooKoobums money for her crap! But NOOOO!! Unicorns and butterflies over at DS.

    If I had the capabilities, I would search out those threads and PM them to these women so they could thank those lovers’ of shitty dipes personally. And ask how they had the nerve to defend this POS. Oh yeah, and they need to give H2BAM an extra speshul THANKS!!

    Re: Kookabums going slow….
    Well I have tried contacting Melinda again and STILL no response. I am tempted to round up all the women how are still having issues and going to the state of Illinois and reporting her as a scammer. This is ridiculous. I am so upset and angry – and to see others coming forward about how they were taken is getting me more upset. The word must be put out there for other prospective buyers. I, as well as others, have been made a fool by this woman. Made to feel guilty and accept less then what she promised. Our kindness and compassion as been taken advantage of by this woman and we have not been given any type of respect by her. She has taken our understanding and threw it back in our face. I am appalled by this.

  758. amessymama says:

    According to KooKoobums site http://www.kookabearkids.com/ she wants to start taking orders in late June. That would be right about now. Aren’t we just lucky ducks?!

    I posted, asking opinions of the diaper, on CDN’s Fluffy Chat so that the opinions would be out there for all to see. I’d do it on DS’s Diaper Q&A too, but I’m still being violated by their ban stick, so I can’t.

    But YOU can!! 😉

  759. Sala says:

    I missed the whole Nick thing. I remember the Uniporn but not someone stalking Nick. whaaaa? Anyone fill us in?

    And the uniporn was this link to a cheesy pic of some dude wearing minimal clothing but with a horn and strap on hooves and tail, all soft pastels, in a rearing posture if I remember right. It was just weird. Weird weird weird.

  760. Aj says:

    Who is Nick?

  761. Rikki Martinez says:

    In response to post #579 …… Before I knew about DODS… I had just posted this on HC:

    Posted: Thu Jun 24, 2010 5:04 pm Post subject:

    ——————————————————————————–

    I know that she cause a lot of problems for me, when I ran Beau Modele Congo…. I had to shut the congo down because of her…. I didn’t do a background check on her before I let her join the congo, I had been emailing with her for months and she seemed like a pretty decent person. Then someone contacted me and told me to do some investigating, which I started to read for what seemed like days, I asked her about this and world war 3 hit! I was never so embaraased in my life.

    I had to literally explain to other WAHM’s for days that I wasn’t in Co-hoots” with her, people literally thought I was…. I got drug through the mud cause of her and if anyone wants to know why she should not be on HC, ASK ME!!!!

    __________________________________________________________

    SHe never told me of her problems, I would have never allowed that drama on any congo that had my name on it!
    Hope left the congo to persue her own cart and focus on that. Hope and I had been running Beau Modele together and after the $hit hit the fan with ItsASnap everybody was leaving the congo, and in order to try and salvage my good name I had to close down Beau Modele and redeem myself to the ladies of CDN……
    Wow, Teresa you stop at nothing to justify your bad deeds. Shame on you!

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

    Yo, HC admin is at CDN asking for an unemotional, objective summary of the Snaps evil-doing so she can see the proof for herself. anyone want to step up to the plate for this one?

  763. Just Peachy says:

    I was debating it but really I am sick of these admins and whatnot expecting the members to do their work for them. Its looking more and more like Snatch isn’t gonna get banned as a HC vendor anyways so why waste my time?

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

    peachy – i feel the absolute same damn way.

  765. sciencefair says:

    Ditto peach.

  766. me says:

    Are we talking about Mindi’s DH Nick?
    What does he have to do with uniporn?

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

    I just thought the uniporn had to do w/ someone using a pic of a unicorn shitting a rainbow as their avi at DS, to protest, ya know, the enforced shitting of rainbows there, and someone else getting all up in arms b/c apparently unicorns and rainbows are gay pride symbols – i was aware of the rainbow, but the unicorn, idk, just summarizing what I remember of it all – it was ages and ages ago. Back when it was a sport to see who could bate the mods the best. I still give props to ravenonyx’s pic of a bumgenius dipe. and she had a siggy about bg’s being the bomb, yes? lemme see if it’s still there…

    idk which nick the pp was referring to, and if it is mindi’s nick, i have no idea how that all fits.

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

    #786 – omfg, i HATE it when every mothaf-er that gets a nice camera thinks they’re all pro and should go into bizniss for themselves. i spent too much damn time working in a photo lab, trying to fix the mistakes our “professional” clients made….they were always too freaking ignorant to even UNDERSTAND their errors, and that it was an error on their end.

    i can’t even read past the first response to that thread, it just makes my blood freaking boil. I have a freaking DEGREE in fine art photography and do not feel i am ready to set up shop for myself.

  769. monkey says:

    788

    I know. I tried to respond nicely but I’m sure I’ll get freaked out on.

    Why did I pay a shit ton of money for a degree in media and work myself half to death for 2 radio stations, one production company and a tv station if all I need was a good camera and to take some pictures of kids playing in the yard?

    I feel like my skills, that I worked really hard for are totally undervalued by the, “I have a nice camera and suddenly I’m a professional” attitude so many people have.

    Just the other day somebody asked me what my career was before I started teaching and became a SAHM. I said, “Oh, I was a video editor for a PBS affiliate.” They’re response, “Oh, I’m an editor too. I have Ulead on my computer and I put together videos for my extended family.”

  770. monkey says:

    I don’t tell a talented WAHM, “Oh I’m a seamstress because I sewed the button back on to DH’s shirt.” Um… you have a giant talent… I can get a button back on… and it only takes me two tries.

    I paid almost 5 figures for my wedding pictures…I was not taking ANY chances.. I can take my son to multiple shoots as a baby, etc, but I can’t ever reshoot my wedding! I’m getting hives just thinking about someone with a friggin entry-level DSLR thinking they’re pro because they took a photo of, oh, a mountain against a clear sky, or a cake with enough of an f-stop to blur out the background…ugh. Not to mention my son’s newborn photographer talked with me about how she got started and how she has about $30k in equiptment and only charged me $75 for her fee, and one of the photos she took of my son won a photographers-only photography contest. Shes’ frigging good. Anyone not-good wouldn’t be able to charge a penny.

    787, the only uniporn that pops to mind (b/c it was so hilarious and disturbing) is the unicorn orgy with the 2 other mythical creatures. It was on craftastrophe and was the epitome of uniporn. 😛

  773. JustMe says:

    Sigh. Nothing drives me more crazy than the “I own a _____ so I’m a professional” mentality. Like the dime a dozen WAHMs that post every day saying things like “I just got my first sewing machine! Now I’m going to sell diapers!”. I made over 100 diapers before selling one, and I still cringe thinking how much I still had to learn.

  774. JustMe says:

    WAHMs was supposed to be in quotes…. “WAHMs” , not actual WAHMs!! I love my peeps!

  775. CJ says:

    793. I had someone wanting to buy fabric off of me b/c she wanted to start making and selling cloth diapers. Then she started asking me about patterns, and different common terms. Turns out that she has never used a cloth diaper in her life (and doesn’t plan on it) yet she feels the need to make them and sell them.

    I agree with the photography comments. I am noticing a lot of photographers popping up locally lately. It seems like the photos are okay but the editing is over the top. The art of photography has been lost. All you need is a point and shoot camera and some photo editing software and you are in business.

  776. me says:

    795-CDs are “green” so they are “trendy”. People can think just about anything is gross and not want to do it but still try to make a buck!

  777. sissy hankshaw says:

    795 I know what you mean. I’ve had this conversation with a photog student friend of mine. Now that everyone has a digital camera and even your phone can take a decent pic I feel like the art has been lost. I think a really good photograph was more valuable back when every click of the camera counted. When you got that one phenomenal pic it was great. Now you can take unlimited pictures and somewhere on that media card there is bound to be at least a few good shots no matter who took the pictures. It makes everyone think they are a photographer.

  778. melmelly says:

    I have several friends that think they can have a photography biz and make the bucks. One is looking to make several hundred dollars this summer, charging a $75 sitting fee, yet her pics are crap. My son takes better pics with my iPhone!

    Another got tired of spending too much money on equipment, cost of developing, etc., so she stopped.

    The third has just recently started, like in the last two months. Her pictures are nice, by she over-edits them with different colors. There is a market for that kind of thing on Etsy, but it’s not photo album, pass down the family line, kind of stuff.

    Why is it tempting to enter just to piss her off like she does everyone else?

  782. Rikki is lying her ass off. I told her there were a bunch of people on HC who didn’t like me AND linked her to CDN so she could read the BS for herself. If she chose not to read it, that’s on her. I am sure she said nothing to Hope about it. SHE is the one that suggested I use another name for my store on her congo and sell different products. At this point she is saying anything she can to try to make it look like she is not at fault. I mean, especially after trying to start her competing venue, stalkshop, which was a complete and utter failure, she needs to brown nose the HC Forum mods or she will be out of there too.

    Teresa, really? I tried out Stalk Shop, it didn’t work, oh well, um, Karen knows about that and I am out 2,000.00, what does that have to do with you?

    No one believes your horse$hit! You can trash talk me all you want, I don’t give a crap anymore. As a matter of fact I am done trying to defend myself against you, it is ridiculous and even childish..

    I NEVER suggested you change your store name and sell different products!!! Oh, so I told you to go make soy candles??? Really?? Ok, whatever toots your horn!

    I didn’t know the extent of your troubles or how much people disliked you…. It is not my fault!!! You brought all this shit on yourself and apparently everyone sees this.

  785. eeek says:

    Since you’re here, Theresa, I’d really like to ask you something. Why, when you’ve made it clear how much you hate HC and many of it’s sellers, why do you want to come back?

    The only reason I can see is to piss people off, and the only reason to do that is because you’re clinging to bitterness at the past. You were kicked off forums etc. because of how YOU acted. Take some responsibility for your own actions, be an adult, and move on.

    If you actually wanted to sell you’d go to etsy or somewhere you don’t have the rep you have on HC.

  786. shabbychic says:

  787. MotherMoonPads says:

    I thought I saw that H2BaM posts here now, so I’d like to ask you something.
    WHY do you feel the need to defend Kookabums like you do. You keep saying she is trying to make things right, but there is very little proof of that. She is still defrauding people out of their hard earned money and sending out defective product.

    Do you know her? Is she a friend of yours? Is that why you stomped for her when she “redesigned” her products without testing them and jumped on me when I questioned her about it?

    WHY do you keep defending a scammer?

  788. Mmspirit7 says:

    about the hillcountry doll maker, while I have heard good things about her as well how many times have we heard that with wahms gone bad and such? I am sure she will post her side later. But I know the mama that posted that and she is not one to bad talk wahms and really trys to work with them when something goes wrong.

  789. Redhead says:

    807- I don’t know if she posts here, but she definitely reads the blog.

  790. DSDM2 says:

    The JAR sounds more like both parties were upset, the buyer understandably did not want her PP window to close, but the seller probably had her account locked b/c of it. It sounds like communication was the issue, and not product or scamming to me.

  791. amessymama says:

    786-Maybe she has a camera with burst mode. She can take 100 pics in 30 seconds and one might turn out. That’s what I do. But I suck! 😀

    Hmmm , maybe if I stand outside my courthouse on Saturdays, I can offer people my photog services. I’ll even offer them a deal. For only $100, I’ll take 100 pics. But they’ll have to go to the Target Photo Center and pick them up themselves. I’ll even throw in a coupon for a free icee.

  792. Mmspirit7 says:

    Not on the buyers end though she as the one having to contact the wahm and she gave the wahm a heads up and was attacked and lied to. the wahms fixed was to send a doll ment for another costumer to this buyer to free her funds. to me that’s scamming one costumer to make another happy and well I under if it would have even been the doll ordered. the wahm is at fault. I know if she had message the buyer and told her she was behind, that the buyer would have worked with her. but changing stories everytime of when it would go out but her on edge it when from like two week to tomorrow yeah anyone would have filed

  793. Sala says:

    803, 808, re: HillCountry Dolls, there’s a thread at CDN on it:

    http://www.clothdiapernation.com/vbforums/showthread.php?t=72421

    But yeah, basically the dollmaker had crappy communication, she gave deadlines she couldn’t meet, and did not notify the buyer re: her inability to do the work as promised. Buyer got understandably antsy when her 45 day limit approached, filed a claim. Dollmaker blew up, made excuses, pretty much said that buyer was stealing food from her kids by filing and then threatened to blacklist her name to WAHMs everywhere. Not sure she even has the money to refund should the buyer rescind the claim, seller said she’d have to wait.

  794. Redhead says:

    So, because of H2BAMs life-lesson with the person who scammed her, those having transaction issues with Kooka need to forgive her and move on??

    Re: Kookabums going slow….
    Ladies, I want to chime in here with something…

    Ths WAHM has been working to resolve issues. I’ve had pm after pm from mama’s letting me know that they have been taken care of. I really wish those she is resolving issues with would start posting updates in this thread.

    Has it taken awhile? Yup. Is it going to all end perfectly well? Probably not in every case BUT please do remember that it is one thing to be upset and another to try to take things to the extent I have seen women go in some cases.I’m not talking legal action. Team members here will tell you I actually have to be reigned in a little when it comes to dealing with scammers and contacting police departments. I’ll do just about anything to get a true scammer.I’m very quick to track someone down and help mamas file any charges I can when someone is not working to resolve issues. I’m saying don’t go to the extent of bashing and harsh words etc. This doesn’t do anyone any good.It doesn’t help at all.It might make the one that feels taken advantage of feel better for a few moments, but it will also plant a seed of bitterness that will grow and blossom into something you don’t want or need in your life.

    I want to just speak for a minute as a normal member and mama okay? Not as an administrator.Sometimes it’s hard for me to type on here as a normal mama.

    I have been struggling right now with hard feelings toward someone. I was beginning to give in to harsh thoughts,harsh words. I wanted to go and knock and his door and show him just how good and mad I am. I wanted to know HOW he could do what he has done.WHY he has decided to file chapter 7 and skip out on paying my husband and I the thousands of dollars he owes us. I actually got so mad I sat and cried. As I cried something dawned on me… It wasn’t good for me or for my family for me to let this eat away at me. Have we been done wrong.Yes. Am I still upset to loose all this money? Yes.It is enough to truly be sick over. I decided to show up at the court on the 16th of July and, instead of being angry at him and his wife, I am giving them a letter. One that says their debt to us is no longer owed. I forgive them. DH and I will survive this. DH’s business will survive this. We have our health,our family.So many things to be thankful for.

    The morning after we decided this, we received a call. A house my DH built is under contract. It has been on the market 2 weeks. I can’t help but think that this house selling so quickly and at asking price (that’s a shocker actually!) has something to do with our willingness to forgive. We would have taken about 10-12k less for this house. It is interesting to me that it sold at the asking price and that 12k is right at twice the amount this man whose debt we have forgiven,owed us.

    I’m still going to be a little sad about how we were done but I refuse to allow it to make me bitter or any angrier than it did earlier this week.

    I’m not sure why I just shared all that I guess I want all of you to know I do totally understand how it makes you feel to think or know that someone has taken advantage of you. I know what it feels like to want to tar and feather them. I think it is very normal to be upset in cases like this. It’s what we do with our anger and hurt though that has a really big impact. An impact which can actually effect us far more than the person we are upset with.

  795. monkey says:

    I’m curious as to what exactly constitutes a “true” scammer in Happy’s mind.

    815-One that’s not her sister or BFF. 🙂

  797. Mmspirit7 says:

    Also since the Jar another mom as spoken up about being treated the same way like my friend. but was scared to speak up because she’s well known…

  798. monkey says:

    #816

    OOOOOOOH!

  799. too true says:

    #817 Ok that just pisses me of to no end! A buyer should not be afraid to leave appropriate feedback! Just because you’re popular doesn’t mean you should be bullet proof. Not blaming the buyer because honestly I’ve tippy toed around “popular” WAHM’s myself…I don’t even post personal stuff on DS AT ALL anymore because if I offend the wrong person in the “in crowd” my business is down the drain. I’m glad someone had the balls to complain if they were treated in that fashion, I personally wouldn’t buy from someone who has that kind of CS.

  800. Mmspirit7 says:

    819 that’s how i feel too.

  801. jeruco says:

    What happened to the CDN dollmaker thread?

  802. jeruco says:

    Also, dollmaker is not allowed ever threatend to blacklist the buyer. Dollmaker is meaning she would spread her name to the bad hyenas list. The owner of the bad hyenas list has said before that WAHMs are not allowed to threaten customers with putting their name up there.

  803. too true says:

    I can’t access the CDN thread about Hillcountry doll maker either…

  815. žába says:

    So wait Joyce is saying that she is going to “blacklist” the buyer on JA? Wow. I was thinking about getting a Waldorf doll, and Hillcountry is one of the makes I was looking at, I think I will take her of my list. I am also a bit concerned that as a business she doesn’t even have <$100 to refund a customer.

  816. Munklettes says:

    I will never, ever do business with that wahm now.

  817. amessymama says:

    833-No, I just like to say that. How else could you explain the blind it? 🙂

  818. amessymama says:

    That was weird! I was either going to say “it” or “blind loyalty”. Apparently I did a little of both.

  819. too true says:

    Coming on the heels of my earlier rant about “crossing” or complaining about “popular” WAHMs I just got a trade in the mail from a pretty popular one and am practically in tears over the whole thing…It was supposed to be a $20 trade and I gave a little extra since I’m not a “cool kid”. The product I got was probably worth less than $10 and isn’t even up to par with this sellers reputation…I could complain and have everyone on HC hate me or suck it up like a good girl…

  820. Munklettes says:

    It’s not even the transaction as a whole I have an issue with, it’s the wahm’s responses. ugh.

  829. žába says:

    848 – That is exactly what I think is going to happen. I bet you in about a year she will turn up as the source of more drama under a different name. Having her out in the open was *maybe* better.

    849…that is s scary but probably sad truth

    850,LOL! now THAT was funny!

    and damn forgot the other number but I agree that I really do not believe Teresa WANTS to sell anything. If she did she could go totally anonymous at etsy or ebay or other selling sites. She seems to thrive on this negative energy she creates. I really do not understand it.
    It actually makes me a little sad when I think about it minus all other crap she has done. Is there nothing in her life that brings her happiness but creating chaos for herself and others?
    That is a sad existence.

    853- I like where she said she was quite “peterbed.” Perturbed is what she was looking for. But Peter Bed just made me giggle.

  835. Sala says:

    Sigh, Sativa is in the hospital again. I hate to say it but I’m not surprised she’s in this position nor at the way her family is reacting. She should have known.

    I’m sorry if this offends any of you but if having another child was guaranteed to put me in the hospital from 20-odd weeks on with no one to care for my kids, you better believe my husband’s nads would be cradled in the surgeon’s hands within the week (or at least on the calendar). Especially if I’d had 3 preemies previously and 2 of them are special needs (the last definitely due to being premature). Help from family is a blessing, it should not be an expectation, especially when you are routinely getting into the same damned trouble.

    855-peterbed :giggle:

  837. Aj says:

    Sala, I completely agree. I remember her woe is me thread when she first learned she was expecting.

  838. Just Peachy says:

    Aj a link to it? I didn’t see anything.
    And I agree Sala. I mean if it happens once hell even twice its a fluke but 3 preemies and she had issues half way thru the pregnancy? I would be looking at something a lil more permanent than BC pills or whatnot.

  839. DeviateFromTheNorm says:

    859- Agreed. Multiple forms of BC have proven themselves unreliable for us(pills, barriers, etc). The only fool-proof BC for us: abstaining. No, seriously. I chart, and if getting pregnant would be really bad for us at the time, we abstain for the week surrounding ovulation. There are plenty of other things to be done to provide satisfaction and intimacy between a man and woman besides DTD. 😉

  840. Sala says:

    But she caaaaaaaaan’t take BC pills, they might kiiiiiilll her. Wah. And nobody is excited about this baby and nobody is excited about having to take care of her kids for four freaking months. They don’t looooove her and they like her sister moooooore. Sorry, the whole situation just peeves me.

    I understand that BCP are not the answer, I totally respect anyone’s desire not to use hormonal contraceptives, but dayum, in her shoes my husband and I would have been doing hand jobs and the like until one of us was as sterile as possible. Babies aren’t that much of a blessing if you can’t care for the ones you have. And why the hell hasn’t she been looking into care options for her kids for the last 18 weeks? She knew this was coming. She knew her parents weren’t excited because they knew she’d be dumping her kids on them. Why the hell didn’t she look into second shift care if that’s the only job her husband can get?

    THat’s the thing. This wasn’t a surprise, it was an inevitability. Where the freak was her personal responsibility to her unborn kid, her 3 kids, her family, etc? And all the, golly, how sad, wish I could help comments, your parents suck because they are tired of picking up your shit, don’t they know that every baby is always a blessing no matter how much you can’t care for it or your other kids, gah. This is why the woman thinks she’s justified in doing this crap again.

  841. Just Peachy says:

    For 1 regardless of her past issues, she should NEVER expect her parents to take care of her kids. I think thats just absurd to get all pissy about them doing her a favor.

  842. Just Peachy says:

    For 2 I am an idiot.

  843. smartassmama says:

    Flame away if anyone wishes, but each.and.every.time she mentions her preemies, low birth-weight, complications, special needs, etc., I always think “Then put down the damn Marlboros. JHC, the surgeon general ain’t lying.” I hope I don’t offend any smokers here, but it’s about the dumbest thing a preggo can do. I don’t know their medical history, the extent of her habits, the extent of her kids’ needs, but shit. Try to take out as many negative variables as you can.

    I feel bad for her kids, & her family. I know I don’t feel ‘done’ enough for my DH to get fixed, despite our financial state atm, so I have an iud. If I were a fertile mertyl, we’d use condoms too. But I’ve never been there, so take that with a grain of salt I suppose.

    Those poor kids though. I’ve known the feeling of not feeling wanted by grandparents, feeling like a huge burden. And it was only from 3-8 on weekdays. I can’t imagine feeling (as a small child) like a 24/7 burden on them for a long-term situation. Poor kids; poor grandparents.

  844. Sarah C says:

    It is kind of sick all the people posting about how terrible her family is and that having kids is their decision to make. Sure, yes, it is their decision, but if you make that decision don’t expect that your family MUST take care of your children for several months. Such entitlement.

  858. sourpatchbabe says:

    855. Maybe she was looking for the buddy to a Peter potty?

  859. sciencefair says:

    880 – Oh man, that peter potty is hilarious!

  860. OperaDiva says:

    I’m just now finding this site! LOL this is kind of fun, it’s like airing all the dirty laundry no one knows about on DS. I don’t think I’ve been mentioned yet, I’m generally pretty nice…not always, but generally lol.

  861. DSDM2 says:

    She smokes pot for sure. Just run a search engine search for SativaStarr smoke. I got hits for her and pot during pregnancy on the first 2 hits.

    did you smoke during your pregnancy?
    I’m 30 1/2 weeks and I’ve struggled this whole pregnancy to quit smoking but I just haven’t been able to let go of it completely. Before I got pregnant, I smoked at least a pack a day and although I haven’t been able to totally quit, I have cut back quite a bit.. it depends on the day, but I generall smoke between 1-5 cigarettes a day, it really depends on what I doing and my stress level.. He hasn’t been born yet, but so far according to my doctor he’s developing fine.. My doctor also told me that even if I didn’t quit completely, to at least cut back as much as I could.. The risks associated with smoking increase as the amount of cigarettes (or second hand smoke) the fetus is exposed to increases.”

  863. amessymama says:

    So is SativaStarr for real? Or is she one of those drama whoring, always making up fake tragedies, kind of people?

    I wish someone lived close and offered to help just to see.

  864. Redhead says:

    gah, that is sad. Where does she live?

  865. Sala says:

    She said she lives in Wisconsin. Where in Wisconsin I do not know.

  866. audlovesm5 says:

    Waves to everyone…..been reading/navigating this site for a couple of weeks. It has me rolling at times……

    I am amazed how some of these people behave! And, good lord…..put all of their personal business on a public site!! Anyway…..cheers

  867. Sala says:

    And while I am for public assistance, she can’t afford her own healthcare, of course. So yay having lots of kids you can’t afford much less weeks or months of hospitalization before they are born and weeks and months in the NICU and hospital for her kids after they are born.

    And yet today she says, “I’m pretty sure I’m done having kids (3 complicated pregnancies, 3 preemies, 2 with hyperemesis, 2 placental abruptions, preterm labor with all, 2 months of hospital bedrest and magnesium sulfate with my last and he was STILL 2 months premature).. medicaid would be silly not to cover my BC. I also can’t take anything with estrogen due to a history of pill related pulmonary emboli (blood clots in my lungs). BC is much cheaper than paying for a pregnancy!”

    I have a problem helping those who refuse to help themselves. She’s only ‘pretty sure’ she’s done?

  868. Kristen says:

    Okay, okay….I’ll be the ass that says it. Maybe she should just keep her legs closed? :err:

  869. iken says:

    #889 She probably got the pulmonary emboli from the combination of smoking and taking oral contraceptives with estrogen in them. Of course, that leaves plenty of other options, abstinence being one of them.

  870. Sala says:

    891, but where’s the fun in taking personal responsibility for your actions? It’s much easier to just say, I caaaaaaan’t take BC pills and I shouldn’t haaaaaave to abstain.

  871. werd says:

    lame. I’m not on BCP b/c I haeve issues with hormoal BC and we use condoms despite the fact that we both absolutely hate them. Its really NOT that hard!

  872. werd says:

    aww balls, sorry fo the typos, i;mn half drunk

  873. werd says:

    fuck i give up

    hhhhaaaaahhhaaaaaaaa! no b double e rs jus captin an pherry vanlle pepsi an lots of em

  878. Sala says:

    Is it stalking to find something she said tonight particularly amusing, considering? I just clicked on the off topic thread and there she was.

    “Actually tobacco can be toxic to a child..”

    Huh, you don’t say, and yet….

  879. coffeehoar says:

    Hell, shit like that just burns me up (salivatestarr~chick)… I wanted more kids and had my tubes tied because I needed to be able to take care of my existing kids. It’s called being an adult.

    Sometimes, making the right choice, is hard. Sometimes it downright sucks. Sometimes it means thinking ahead. I had one oops, so not ragging on the oops mommies… they are real blessings, but once I realized that my babies couldn’t survive inside me and I was becoming a hot mess of a mother, I had to grow up and do something to protect my existing kids.

    And I also can’t do freaking hormonal bc, and I can’t do barrier, and I can’t chart (that’s where the oops came from… DH has thug sperm that waited six freaking days for me to ovulate) … and I didn’t trust us to actually use condoms.

    I hope she can carry to term and then grow up quickly.

  880. bittymomma says:

    Totally agree with #901. My son is truly a miracle. Im 24 and need two hands to count my angel babies. There is just no way my body can handle another pregnancy. I’m sad about it sometimes, but so tahnkful for what I do have.

  881. CJ says:

    901: Thug sperm! ROFLMAO! I’m just picturing them waiting around the corner for the egg to appear!

  882. sourpatchbabe says:

    Werd, we don’t want you to become a textsfromlastnight.com example. Please back away from the computer/phone/facebook/anything that will forever put in print your drunken thoughts. And while you’re at it, drink a few for me. I don’t drink anymore but there are days like today where it would have been easier to be drunk out of my mind.

  883. sourpatchbabe says:

    psst… hey you! yeah you with the Y chromosome! I know where that egg is hiding. I can take you there for a fee…

  884. nu says:

    I agree–Stavia needs to grow up.
    Sure I’d love another child, but I know that there are risks. I’m also “advanced matarenal age” and my last pregnancy landed me on bedrest at 26 weeks. I have a few other things going on and I think it would be selfish of me to want another child knowing something could happen to me or my unborn child.

    The “thug sperm” I nearly spit my tea out!

  885. Sala says:

    She’s 26. She’s got 3.5 kids. She should be grown up already. Maybe she’s just not too bright.

  886. Redhead says:

    907, she is probably just high 99% of the time which impairs her judgment.

  887. Just Peachy says:

    I think regardless of her pot use, she would still be just as dumb. Hell I know potheads who use more common sense than this dumb ass does.

  888. coffeehoar says:

    The photography chick in the link on 786 is really insulting now. According to her, we’re hating on her because we’re “jealous”.

    Um, no, hon. We just don’t want you to ruin some poor couple’s wedding with your cluelessness.

  889. Sala says:

    Being as she’s currently in the hospital for PTL, I would hope she’s not high right now. They generally frown on their patients smoking much less smoking up.

  890. Redhead says:

    910, I still have yet to get a strike or even a warning… but I am not going to waste my 1st strike or energy on her. She is stupid, completely stupid.

  891. Amygamie says:

    912- I got a warning the other day for language, it was really quickly after I posted so I might of gotten reported. I said “twat” when I was talking about the female anti-rape condoms. That sucks, I had to change the word. 😦

  892. sourpatchbabe says:

    911, I used to work in the kitchen of a Catholic hospital as a teenager. Once we had a patient who was an alcoholic and the nutritionists had approved one can of beer with his noonday meal a day for the duration of his stay. I asked her why and she said that even though alcohol is bad for him, the detox effect could be fatal to him in the condition he was in at the time.

    I also was a wheelchair pusher at another hospital (I was in a program at school where I got paid to volunteer at certain places) and there was this one guy that had to be wheeled on his bed and had an oxygen tank permanently attached to his bed. He would be pushed outside once a day to smoke and he was nice enough to share his cigs.

  893. Kimbella says:

    When my grandpa was in a nursing home, his roomate got 2 “servings” of scotch or vodka a day.

    It kept the guy nice. He turned into a huge tyrant if the nurses were late bringing him his drinks!

  894. Sala says:

    Amygamie, I got a ‘friendly’ warning for using a British expression – I was reported because it’s one letter off from a verboten word so they said that purposefully mistyped words were not ok. I told ’em to look it up, it’s a valid word that means nothing ‘dirty’ at all. Not my fault that people aren’t well-read and/or their minds are dirty instead of understanding what I actually said. They said, didn’t matter, someone was offended.

  895. Aj says:

    What was the word, Sala?

  896. Sala says:

    Shirty.

  897. Redhead says:

    916- I am going to start reporting people for using “crap”, “poop”, and anything else aside from proper bodily-function terms from now on..and I’ll say my reasoning is “because it offends me”…
    (not that is does, just being a turd)

  898. JustMe says:

    Redhead, PLEASE don’t report my “crap”s! It’s my only bad word! I wasn’t even aloud to say “butt” or “pee” growing up, but “crap was okay. lol.

  899. Amygamie says:

    I don’t see the point in anyone getting all worked up over silly little words. In some dialects words that would offend one person would not bother some people that live in another area and visa versa. Lame.

  900. Redhead says:

    Hahaha, I am not really going to. 😉 But I would like to, to bother the mods!

  901. Sala says:

    Man, i’d get written up all the time since crap is my go-to cuss word on that board.

  902. Sala says:

    Update on Sativa; the wreck continues. I am sorry that she’s in her position, it really sucks waiting to see if your baby will live or die. But what a train wreck. If my husband was a loser like that, there’s no way I’d have spread my legs for him at all, much less risk getting pregnant with that many issues. Of course, if my husband was a loser like that in the slightest he wouldn’t be my husband. Prince of a guy. Wow.

  903. Kellie says:

    Ugh, I didn’t realize that chick smoked too, while having all these high needs preemies. that just pisses me off.

  904. sourpatchbabe says:

    I don’t know, I mean don’t her preemies have respiratory issues? What kind of parent who has a child who is ill enough to possibly die of complications purposefully does things that can and do affect the child negatively? I don’t care if she says that she never smokes in the house and she sprays herself, she has to hold those babies and cuddle them they are inhaling all the fumes in her skin and hair. That has got to affect them somehow.

  905. nu says:

    926-my mother smoked; one time a dr. told her to stop it was making my brother have respiratory issues. She got upset with all of us when we had kids because we told her the smoke was bothersome. I said, man it seems like LO always gets a cold after visiting you. She got pissed. She has since stopped smoking—after she got really sick. Glad she stopped, for her health at least.

  906. smartassmama says:

    926 – exactly. Just because you don’t smoke in the house or the car, doesn’t mean you don’t smell like it to a non-smoker. A lot of people who’ve quit will tell you that they smell it everywhere now. So her kids have got to smell it on her, or if she covers it with perfume that probably just makes it worse.

  907. Kellie says:

    The smell is bad, I’m an ex-smoker. I quit in 2003….Uh, so I could get pregnant! Hello! Anyway, my husbands family ALL smoke and they think as long as they put the cigarette out RIGHT before we walk in the door, that’s okay, because they aren’t smoking “around” the kids. Even hubby smokes and I’ve asked him not to smoke in the car because it will still affect the kids, and he has finally stopped, but it’s been a long fight.

    For someone to continue to smoke when they have complicated pregnancies, Pre-term labor, special needs babies, etc., that just pisses me off to no end. I can’t blame her parents for being pissed at her. She is obviously a self-righteous, immature, entitled brat. I’m glad her parents are standing up to her. No one else will. All these kiss asses on DS are annoying me to death! I started to do it too, but now that I realize she has continued smoking, knowing how her pregnancies go, well, not anymore.

  908. angelique says:

    861 agreed, babies are not always a blessing. It is very annoying when people post like who cares where you are in life, a baby is always a blessing. The specific child deserves to be cared for and loved but a pregnancy and another child to actually care for are not a blessing in some cases. If the OP was my sister, I would have reluctantly helped out a little but told her “told you so” etc. exactly as her parents did

  909. amessymama says:

    924-See, this is why I’m thinking she can’t be for real. Can anyone really have that many issues in their life? Really?

  910. It's A Snap AKA BanHammer/ misfitmom@gmail.com AKA Teacup AKA MarnasMahem says:

    848 and 849….I have been on 2 different congos for the past 3 months and have a stand alone cart aside from the one that is now inactive. Business is great!!

  911. theinvisible says:

    Hmmm. A new member and WAHM is on CDN with a ton of dramarific posts already. Was on DS for a bit and has under 50 feedback with 2 neutral and 1 negative. This scenario more often than not ends badly. We shall see.

  912. ~*~Momma~*~ says:

    They must not know who you are

  913. insomniac says:

    933 what is her cdn ID?

  914. amessymama says:

    933-Who?

  915. amessymama says:

    I think I know who it is.

    Was one of her first posts about a transaction issue on DS?

    Does green and goes well with sushi mean anything? 🙂

  916. Mmspirit7 says:

    I bet snaps is lieing about another store and the congos just to get people worked up and talking about her again and to try and hurt HC as many said they wouldn’t shop andwould there shops if she was left on there

  917. cdnation says:

    #933. Can you let me know who that is please. owner@clothdiapernation.com

  918. ~*~Momma~*~ says:

    937 – i was thinking her, but not sure

  919. cdnation says:

    937 means something to me.

    Can someone pm or email me the details about her please.

  920. incognizable says:

    Snaps is an attention seeking liar. The end.

  921. theinvisible says:

    941 I don’t have any details. She just got my attention with the drama posts and I thought I should look around. All I know is on her DS feedback.
    messymama, you are thinking of exactly the right sn. I don’t want to just put it out there because she hasn’t done anything yet but she is worth a watch.

  922. insomniac says:

    937…I was thinking of that poster too.

    Could you please let an admin or mod at CDN know who that is?

  926. monkey says:

    Ooops, should have read farther, just saw that the doom bringer already asked for the info!

  927. monkey says:

    Also that should read owner not doom bringer. This is why I shouldn’t try to post in 3 different places at once, I get jumbled.

  928. Just Peachy says:

    This goes along with my last post just in case she gets fresh and deletes her shit http://hyenacart.com/feedback_view_sc.php?hcid=46016

    snort, doom bringer. i think that’ll be my name for dh this week.

  930. monkey says:

    951

    You know what’s funny? I accidentally typed doom bringer because I was sending DH an email at the same time!

  931. Kris says:

    Owner, doom bringer, tomato, tomahto… ROFL

  932. monkey says:

    As the Korean’s say, “Same same”.

  933. theinvisible says:

    err, is doom bringer a Korean term of endearment? You’ve mentioned your dh on cdn and he doesn’t seem all that bad lol.

  934. Amygamie says:

    Ok this is really going to show how much of a goofy nerd I am but here is a song I like and sing all the time and I think you ladies will like it. It is called “I hate your blog”It cracks me up and always makes everything funny. 🙂

  936. Redhead says:

    She has her own “forum”? How lame is that?!

  937. BffMama says:

    937-I totally called that one in my own head from her very first post (and subsequent posts) even before this was brought up.

  938. amessymama says:

    Does anyone know this mama? I wonder if she would name the buyer, if she was directed to the blog.

  939. Munklettes says:

    950 – I don’t see anything bad, so did she delete something?

  940. Too True says:

    #960, I’d surely love to know who the buyer is, to file with pp after 10 days! That is crazy, I’d wait at least 3 weeks for something coming from NZ…love the unicorn farts though!!!

  941. Sala says:

    Jeez, if you’re buying international, you don’t do it two weeks before you need an item. How stupid!

  942. nu says:

    10 days and you file?? The mama had buyers remorse. We’ve had Priority packages take 10 + days from NY to FL and it wasn’t a holiday!!!!!!!

    I remember when I was new to b/s/t it was going on 2 weeks. I pmed the mama, she said it was sent parcel. It arrived a few days later.

    FC sometimes takes 10 days! Uggg what a jerk! I think the buyer needs an atlas!

  943. Kimbella says:

    So, who is Chica?????

    http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showpost.php?p=10617517&postcount=19

    She posts about receiving feedback, yet she has none. I’m wondering what her old username is! This isn’t the first comment she’s made that’s made me think she’s been on DS before!

  944. noisybean says:

    966, she has to have been on DS before. She’s too comfortable there. Almost like she knows people from a past life or something.

  945. Redhead says:

    She is quite bold and likes to pick fights.. I am wondering if she was banned before..? I really didn’t mind who she was fighting with(miss “I-think-I-should-have-a-photography-business-even-though-I-am-ignorant”)… but still.. I am wondering.

  946. chrissyb says:

    Chica seems to post a lot in babywearing forum on DS. Maybe she is just a TBW mama jumping ship? TBW has the same feedback system as DS. Just a thought.

  947. JustMe says:

    I’ve seen Chica posting all over the place, and definitely acting abrasive and like she’s VERY comfortable on DS. Not like a newbie, that’s for sure, unless the newbie was looking for trouble and was familiar with other similar sites. . .

  948. JustMe says:

    dude, my monster changed! When did that happen?

  949. insomniac says:

    Teresa has just been found out to be the WAHM behind Rags And Rebels. Karen banned the store and I have PM’d Becky the info about who she is on the HC forums and she has been banned there again. If you have seen someone posting as that wahm at CDN or DS speak up to the powers that be at each place!

    Which only makes you think that if she was not lying as having another solo shop then she may not have been about the begin on 2 congos. Maybe even as rags & rebels? so has anyone seen that name on a congo? Karen can’t track IPs of congo shops as easy as solo’s.

    She is also masquerading as 3smallbabes on forums(Becky caught that one and banned her earlier)

  950. Sala says:

    She just opened the 3smallbabes persona on HC forum yesterday and on DS last week.

  951. chrissyb says:

    937 man that woman is nuts!

  952. eeek says:

    OMFG. It’s not even like she is getting big bucks for being such a freak. The scammers at least have greed as motivation, creepy but at least it is comprehensible. All she has is insane bubbling bitterness making her go through all this work to try to get back at people she thinks wronged her, quite a while ago now.

    She’s pathetic. Just think how little she must have in her life, for this to still be her focus. She’s also old enough to be a grandma, and she still acts mentally defective enough to get kicked off a forum/venue that NO ONE gets kicked off of. The crazy is sad and horrifying.

    I hope that made you twitch when you read it, Theresa. It’s all true and you know it, that’s why you hate so much. You know you suck and it’s hard to let them all get away with reinforcing your fears about yourself. Go to therapy.

  953. DSDM2 says:

    She (teresa) was Labe90 also on DS. I linked some of her PB products to her old account.

  954. MotherMoonPads says:

    No way #978. Labe was… nice if I’m remembering right? She hung around in the mama cloth thread. She certainly wasn’t the crazy that I picture IAS to be.

  955. DSDM2 says:

    Maybe she was on her meds at the time? She is certainly nuts, but plays nice too.

  956. Redhead says:

    Labe90? WOW! Has anyone told the mods there at DS?

  957. DSDM2 says:

    She is banned.

  958. sciencefair says:

    Holy chumbuckets! That chick has problems. Maybe she should follow feli-shoe’s example and start her own forum.

  959. Redhead says:

    She should go to Etsy. They allow all sorts of scamming over there :/

  960. MotherMoonPads says:

    Ugh. Seriously #985. It’s still my main place to sell, but I rarely buy from there because of all of the shoddy sellers.

  961. Redhead says:

    has anyone PMed a mod about Chica/Kadydidit?

  962. DSDM2 says:

  964. smartassmama says:

    This is OT, but have the new comment emails changed for anyone else?

  965. magpie says:

    I have been lurking for a LONG time, just never posted. There is definitely something odd about Chica. I agree she is way too comfy to be a newbie. And I am shocked about Labe90. I did a trade with her and it went smoothly and she was very nice. I can’t quite match the dots on that one.

  966. smartassmama says:

    Where were you returning from zamgrawrz?

  967. DSDM2 says:

    Magpie (and the others) who have delt with the “new snap names”, send me her info (addie, pp, etc.) Thanks. DSDM2 is my YAHOO ID, I am usually hidden, but on.

  968. It's A Snap says:

    Nope Karen hasn’t found the congo and she won’t either. The store isn’t a name you would associate with me. I email pictures to a friend on the congo, who edits them, uploads them to a photobucket account (not hers and not mine) then loads them on the congo cart. My IP never comes into play.

  969. It's A Snap says:

    Forgot to mention that I still have a stand alone cart that I stock from a different IP and that is paid for from a different pay pal address (not mine). It is really a futile effort to try to be rid of me..lol

  970. eeek says:

    For those of you surprised by her emerging identities- Teresa has been quite nice in the past. And seemingly sane, and made nice things and got decent feedback. Don’t let those qualities fool you, she’s also completely batshit crazy and lives in a very different universe than what the rest of us call reality. There’s scary amounts of hate in her twisted little brain, and when it comes out it’s vile.

  971. Taterbug says:

    “He always seemed so nice, quiet, kept to himself.”= He is a serial killer

    “I can’t believe she stole from me, I trusted her implicitly.” = She is a con artist

    These people couldn’t do what they do with the degree of success that they have, if they appeared to be what they really are.

  972. kimbella says:

    Chica/Kadydidit are both banned now. Someone must have told a mod (wasn’t me, I already outed someone else to them this week).

    Or maybe one of the mods just read it here.

  973. zamgrawrz says:

    I was in South Carolina for the last week and a half 😀

  974. sissy hankshaw says:

    I’m sure they read this. Can anyone fill me in on why Katydidit would have two ID’s there, she didn’t try too hard to hide who she was. Was she involved in some sort of drama? Maybe she just lost her account info, although that seems unlikely.

  975. amessymama says:

    So who is katydidit? I mean, I know she is chica, but is there a story to the name? I can’t search on DS so I can’t bring up any of her posts and my google attempt failed.

  976. kimbella says:

    I don’t know of any issues with Kadydidit. She only joined last fall.

    No idea why she would come back as someone else.

    This is why you never warn someone that you are filing with Paypal. Just do it and get your money back!

    She already left negative FB but I can’t see who the seller was. 😦 Will someone take pity on me?

  978. Redhead says:

    1001- the seller was “whit1827”. She has another positive noting shipping delays.

    What Chica had to say in the photography thread was fine. I agree with her (and the others who posted) that just because you have a nice camera DOES NOT mean you can start doing weddings and CHARGING.
    But then she had to challenge a “contest” with Budafam on cake-baking and then followed Budafam’s cake-picture thread to start drama there about how her pictures sucked. It is like Chica has some void in her life that continually bashing other members filled.. kinda like that Steph_Reynolds chick.

    It’s whit1827

    Labe90 was reportedly trying to conceive #3 in April, sooooooo she could be coming back to these fora again and again should they have another kid.

  982. kimbella says:

    Yeah, I agreed with Chica in the photg thread too!

    My SIL has been talking for years about doing wedding photography with her husband. Because he has a nicer camera (film, not digital, that he got on clearance at Wal-mart) and has several lenses, he must be a great photographer. SIL says he’ll take the pics and she’ll pose people. I’ve seen his picasaweb album – they’re not that great!

  983. kimbella says:

    Ooo! Ooo! Ooo!

    I googled Kadydidit’s photobucket userid (which, btw, is now password protected).

    Looks like Chica/Kadydidit was previously the banned member ZandICo: http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=468460

  984. Redhead says:

    good sleuthing, Kimbella!

  985. DSDM2 says:

    1005 it would make sense that she is TTC. If she is on meds, and now unstable, then she went off of them for some reason, and TTC would be a valid one. But isn’t she like 50 or something?

  986. Redhead says:

    Like.. she is really on medicines for her behavior?

  987. kimbella says:

    Oh, and Chica/Kadydidit/ZandICo is also skado: http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=628672

    I wonder how many other usernames I can find for her! lol!

  988. kimbella says:

    skadoo, with two Os. Oops!

  989. DSDM2 says:

    I am not sure, but she seems to go from fine to crazy in waves, so it would make sense.

  990. DSDM2 says:

    And I wouldn’t want her knowing where I live, lol.

  991. insomniac says:

    994 and 995…I totally agree
    Her behavior really is socio, even psycho,pathic. I wish I was joking but seriously from a psychiatric standpoint it fits many of the markers. She has been operating as Rags & Rebels, posting as Rags & Rebels for several months at HC and totally staying off the radar. Doing business, getting along with people and making sales and trades. That was not enough. It ate at her that she could not flaunt what she had gotten away with. She HAD to tease and push and see if anyone would catch her. Just like when a socio or psycho path has to tease the police to challenge them and see if they are smarter and to see if they can “win”.
    It is never enough to actually be winning(like she was as rags & rebels,no one had any idea)…she HAS to make she challenges and causes chaos. She HAS to brag to try and feel superior.
    I really feel she has some serious serious mental health issues. I really hope she does not spend the rest of her days wasting it trying to constantly “win” against all the invisible forces she views against her at HC. It is a sad existence to even think about the amount of time and energy she puts into all these personas and ID’s. It makes me wonder if the family details she gave as herself were even true, or how much of it was true.
    Do we know ANYTHING real about her?

    Anyway…I doubt she is actually trying to conceive, it just fit that persona to say that. She has created so many different lives, kids, names, husbands, details, ages, etc etc. I am sure that persona was all BS too.

  992. amessymama says:

    Dang, Sybil sure likes DS to be coming back with every single one of her personalities like that!!

  993. Redhead says:

    1014, that is messed up! I guess I haven’t followed her drama very much to know the full story.

    And Kimbella, geez.. how many names is that now? 5? What a nut!

  994. amessymama says:

    Oh, I was referring to Chica/Kadydidit/ZandICo/Skadoo.

    Although, I guess the same could be said for Snatch too.

  995. insomniac says:

    1018, maybe those two should meet and start their own forum where they each sign up as all their different ID’s to fill it up and then just talk amongst themselves all day long,LMAO!

  996. sissy hankshaw says:

    1017 yeah 5, read her Zandico siggy. She also had one called Moms_solitaire_team she used to troll the board with. Wth, I always think of trolls as bored teenage boys with too much time on their hands. It’s weird to me that another mommy would act so childish.

  997. sissy hankshaw says:

    I’m confused about this Chica chick, I also agreed with her on the photography thread. She seemed so normal.

  998. Kitty says:

    DSDM2, I contacted the person you mentioned in #979 (I know her on another board) We shall see if she is in that congo or not.

  999. magpie says:

    @993…It was a trade so I don’t have any info in my pp. I also deleted most of my ds inbox a few weeks ago and can’t find any of our back and forth. I will look through my email and see if I can find anything.

  1000. Jacky says:

    OMG, I almost did a trade with whit1827 for some organics, but she never bothered to get back to me about sending them. She kept promising for days that she was sending the pp for difference in the items and then quit responding to my pm’s all together. I finally just told her to forget it. Glad I escaped that one.

  1001. zamgrawrz says:

    Is it bad that I almost hope that my elastic or velcro goes out on my BG’s so I can send them in and get them replaced-preferably after the new prints come out and the brights are back? Hehe

    New post up!

    awww, RMs minions are following her around to save her from us meanie stalker bloggers!
