My favorite quote from her is in the above thread: “I asked for good advice not your mouth so keep that good advice coming.”

dont ask for help here

I am PO but trying not to be because of super sweet Mamas who helped me. Its just a few mams who get under my skin. I knew I was putting myself out there and requested no flaming in my story. In an accident my daughter got mildly hurt. She got frostbite on her bum hands and feet during a stall while strapped in her car seat sleeping on her way home on a really bad winter day. She had on a snowsuit.

I just wanted help and suggestions for upcoming winter. I am trying to not repeat this.

But I guess I am the only Mama in the world who has had something happen to their child. I am exaggerating in this. they have never broken a bone but have been scrapped up, fallen, dislocated elbows, etc. You take precautions but never expect the worst. especially so close to home. Now I lived through a version of the worst and want to improve. But women is it Pms, pride or what ???

Sorry I am just complaining loudly. Encourage one another daily is my motto.
Think this through before you speak or type.

lets pray for 1 day for Ds mamas

Lets pray in unity for 1 day and maybe take a fast for Ds Mamas that we will walk together in the unity of motherhood and be encouraging to one another.

I know some isolated mams come here for support and it may be all they have. So lets ask that they will feel the love of the Mamas here. I feel the spirit of pride on this site and i ask for it to leave it name of the Lord so that we can have unity and walk together supporting each other.

Am I way out there?

You are trying hard to be the martyr huh? I call TROLL.

  1. reallytiredmommy says:

    Um the last time she posted about the incident she rambled and didn’t make any sense. I had a hard time even understanding what she said. And really? I do think mamas support each other on ds when they actually went through something horrible.

  2. Redhead says:

    WHY can’t she figure out how to keep her child warm on her own? I mean she lives in flippin’ Winnipeg (in frigid -40 weather no less!).. did they just move there from Jamaica or something?!
    Does she not have brains enough to know to keep supplies in the van in case another emergency? EVEN in TEXAS, we prepare for an emergency if we’re driving in wintry weather- and it rarely gets below 20° F here.

    I just can’t imagine being that stupid.

  3. dundundun says:

    I think she would get along famously with demon lady.

    Frozen tooshie + scratched back + perplexed DS momma who don’t understand = Two mommas who haz teh krazies.

  4. dundundun says:

    DS mommas*

    Eff my inability to type. EFF IT.

  5. DSDM2 says:

    She lied in her thread about not asking for help on DS… She claims she never read the old responses, well look at the op in her new thread about the diapers, “I posted about my Dd frozen dipe last spring when we had a stall.many people didnt get it but you’d have to live where it is -40 then factor in wind chill.”

    So she did read it. And just didn’t like it.

    Re: how do you avoid frozen dipes northern mamas
    thanks. i should of not left her strapped up. i didnt want her to be outside with me but really, what good did my mechanical skills do. I was better off inside. I have more to add to the story.

    No one would answer he phone to help me at home. But I have 1 of those friends who always helps everyone. She was close by and came to help when she was able. she is mrs. dependable. Someone had left the hatch light on and the battery died. I thought it was frozen fuel or starter or something. But she is also Mrs. fix it and helped me. She brought my children into her mega van. And stopped sort of in front of me while I pushed out my wan so she could boost it. Guess what? a lone young man in a truck yells at her for parking in the wrong spot. What an idiot she wasnt parked and all he had to do was drive around her. I got so mad at him I chased him down a frozen parking lot and told him off. I told him parked cars dont have lights on, informed him he was a lazy man to not drive around and a real man would stop to help 2 women and a van full of children. then I said thank the Lord I have good friends and went on to her praise her. I told him the situation is bad enough without him. When we were on our way again I gave him a tract.

    I admit to the sin inmy life of rage while drving. I am very calm other times but something happens when driving.”

    So she just chased down a random guy who griped at where her friend was parked.. blasted him and praised her friend, then hands him a Christian tract to lead him to Jesus after all of that?

    And she has road rage? Like it happens a lot?!

  7. reallytiredmommy says:

    I’m lost. Her posts ramble so much. She reminds me of those people who go around condemning everyone to hell then hand them a brochure on how not to go to hell. Whatever happened to loving everyone as our brother and sister? Some people need to reread their Bibles!

  8. Redhead says:

    OMG- google only had grade school info on keeping warm!


    Where’s her YAGE? Me thinks it will be a good one.

  9. DSDM2 says:

    She just posted again in the mean mommies thread.

  10. Redhead says:

    I don’t think AR moms are allowed to used the words “crap” and “sucked”. Off to report to Nancy Campbell (queen of AR) now on her unholy attitude…

  11. DSDM2 says:

    She used damn too.

  12. Redhead says:

    Maybe she is driving and posting, you know.. “something happens when I drive”. That sinful road rage she has must have kicked in.

  13. DocsNemesis says:

    Oh snap.

  14. eeek says:

    I keep thinking she’s not real, the whole butt-first frostbite thing seems so, well, physically impossible when one also has limbs which cool more quickly than one’s core. And the way she seems insane, of course, that adds to my doubt.

    And there seems to be some real issues with an understanding of celsius vs fahrenheit, lol…

  15. DSDM2 says:

    So FUCK ME, she is now making anti formula comments! 😀

  16. DSDM2 says:

    when i see something i don’t like, like on the formula boards i don’t go there and try silence and prayer instead. we all talk too much and give our opinion too much. If its not withing the golden rule is it necessary to say?

  17. Redhead says:

    Who did Chris/Steph ban today? She just posted that in the thread with a warning to Patooty,

    DSDM2, you shouldn’t comment when you don’t like something. Just use “silence and prayer” instead, just like our good example of such has done today. 😉

  18. Redhead says:

    She really reminds me of Emy_lou. I think that is her name.. the drunk poster?

  19. eeek says:

    The question for me becomes, is she insane and trying to pretend she’s someone she’s not, because she thinks she’ll get props for being the queen of AR theology or whatever, and she has some crush on AR women- or is she a flat out troll who has been playing the whole time?

    I read that AR stuff you guys posted on the other thread, disturbing, especially that article. Humble is fine, saying you are worthless and have to just accept everything handed down to you is sick and abusive. Value above rubies but we’ll treat you like trash if it’s more convenient for us.

  20. smartassmama says:

    No. I don’t even think Emy_Lou is asshole enough to suggest we just not eat.

    Thank GOD I’m a Baptist, and not enough of a Holy Roller that I was ever told/taught/suggested that I just not eat in order to exact some kind of positive outcome. Unless you count weight loss.
    The weirdest thing I ever witnessed was one time, ONCE, a girl washed another girl’s feet for spreading rumors about her. And that freaked me the hell out.

  21. smartassmama says:

    The more I see her picture, the more it looks like Michelle Duggar with Santa Claus.

    No disrespect to Michelle Duggar! That woman is awesome. I’d love to meet her and get a lesson in patience. It would do me good.

  22. DSDM2 says:

    17- it looks like someone new, named Gavin B or something.

  23. sissy hankshaw says:

    Redhead she just banned Gavin, the one causing all the gluetrap/mouse drama.

  24. sissy hankshaw says:

    Gavin may be someone else also, it says he has another account and that part of why he was banned.

  25. smartassmama says:

    [QUOTE]I dont mean to be rude please dont take it like this. My point is I put myself out, I want help and I should be able to get it kindly. My clients would never come back again if they got a rude response. I will not come back here either. [/QUOTE]

    There’s the YAGE.

  26. smartassmama says:

    So I have a PM. Wonder who from now. . .

  27. Redhead says:

    I think fasting is a serious thing for serious reasons (I, personally, have never spiritually fasted). Not to be lightly suggested to others because you feel some meanies ganged up on you on a website.

    In my 27 years of life I have been in 2 very controlling churches. Being the stubborn, obstinate & bull-headed person I am.. I was able to get out before becoming brainwashed like some of the others.
    Although, from those experiences, I have a very hard time attending church now.

  28. smartassmama says:

    The only problems I’ve had with church, luckily, have been plain old gossip amongst church ladies. Run of the mill. I’m glad that I haven’t experienced the controlling though, for the same reason that you got out. I [obviously] have issues holding my tongue.

  29. smartassmama says:

    She prayed a blessing for me today. Hopes that I’m rewarded richly.

    Part of me wonders if she was sarcastic.

  30. Redhead says:

    Smartassmama, your advice isn’t worth a hill of beans!


    This is the most amusing thread(s) I have seen in a long time. I needed a good laugh.

  31. Redhead says:

    Ask her to pray for me too. I need rich rewards, preferably in the form of money or even better- expensive yarns to pretty my stash up.
    (((((god bless))))

  32. DSDM2 says:

    I think once she sees this, I will be the one needing the most prayers…

  33. smartassmama says:


    Anytime I type “God Bless” I think of Michelle. She’s so sweet, but whenever I read a post of hers with that at the bottom, I read it as an exasperated, “God Bless!” like my old best friend always said when she was frustrated. lol
    But I have to restate that I know Michelle isn’t saying it that way, she’s always seemed so genuinely nice.

  34. sissy hankshaw says:

    28 that’s why I stopped going. The most judgmental people I’ve ever met were churchgoers. The one I went to growing up was a babtist church. My mother got into an awful car wreck and stopped going to church because she was a little messed up for awhile, she had head injuries and was afraid to even go into our yard for awhile. I had a group of woman come talk to me about how my mother should be ashamed of herself for not going to church anymore and that I should tell her. That was the last time I ever went to church. I’ve been more than capable of being the spiritual person that i am without it. And I have much less drama in my life.

  35. smartassmama says:

    Good Lord that was helpful of them! Because you know, the best way to convince someone to do something is to shame them into it.

    A lady my mom used to work with greeted me at Walmart shortly after my daughter was born. Very sweet, complemented the little one, all smiles. Then asked if I was taking her to church. I admitted that no, we hadn’t. She was a month old and didn’t have the comprehension skills to get the message at that age anyhow. She proceeded to tell me that my infant might go to hell if I didn’t change that. That we, as the parents, needed to do what’s right. Two days later, perusing MySpace, I saw that her granddaughter has a child the same age and is still not married. I found it a little hypocritical that she wanted to blast me for my sins in the middle of the grocery store, when she needed to tend to her own. Anyhow, I just smiled and nodded and found a reason to leave.

  36. Melissa says:

    Lurker here, I just wanted to comment. I am from Winnipeg, cloth diaper, go for walks in -35 or colder (not often, but I do) and my child has never once gotten frostbite on the rear.
    Also, reading one of this lady’s posts above, she said she was in a PARKING LOT. Why wouldn’t she have gone back into the store/restaurant/where ever with her kids till help came. It takes 30 seconds to realize you don’t know what you are doing with a car.

  37. smartassmama says:

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that, imo. Just awkward that she was singling me out. As I have heard her speak against fornicating before too. That was a comfortable discussion.

  38. Redhead says:

    My younger brother was recently dating a girl from 1 of the controlling churches I left ( our entire family left years ago).
    The new pastor of that church had to micromanage their relationship and required weekly meetings with homework assignments for both of them. When they broke up (which was bound to happen under those restrictions) said pastor had to assign them pews to sit in for church services and still required weekly meetings so everyone could come to terms that they had ended their relationship. He had to decide when my brother would return the girl her Ipod and wanted to get both sets of parents in for a meeting (even though he doesn’t know my parents!) to make sure everyone was “on the same page” and there was no bitterness over the breakup- he also wanted my brother to continue being involved at their congregation. This all happened within the last 3 weeks. I’ve been slightly stressed!
    My brother is an idiot, but I hope he sees the mistake he made being involved there again.

  39. smartassmama says:

    They were dating, not married! That’s crazy.

    Did he return the iPod, or are they working out visitation with the pastor?

  40. Redhead says:

    He still has it. Supposedly, he is going to mail it to her this week. My parents finally sat him down last night and told him if he continued attending that church & relationship meetings he was never welcome at their home again.
    After reminding him of everything that happened when we used to attend there (one major thing in our decision to leave was a member there threatened to murder one of my siblings, but there is more.. like the youth pastor being on DR Phil for sleeping with his highschool teacher when he was in school..etc), I think he got the picture?! My brother just.. is an idiot sometimes. Oh, I already said that.

    thanks for the good advice. i appreciate it. blessings to you today. i will use wool under the snowsuit and i have a better one coming from some good advice from alaskanmama.

    LOL…I gave good advice? I said I didn’t see how it was possible to get frost bite on your ass in a snowsuit. Apparently that was good advice. *nod*

  42. smartassmama says:

    Wow. That place is a big ball of crazy.
    How old is your brother?

  43. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Docs, I got one of those too. I think she went through the whole thread and thanked us all. Fkn weirdo.

  44. Redhead says:

    he is 25.

  45. Redhead says:

    I guess Patooty thinks that if she thanks everyone then we will all like her again?

  46. smartassmama says:

    Aww. I hope he’ll find someone who’s less strict, or at least has beliefs closer to those of your family. I am understanding of people who put God first in everything they do. But I don’t think that His people should be allowed to control your every move that way.

  47. smartassmama says:

    Oh she prayed for me. We’re going for coffee next week.
    And then we’re going to walk outside and throw it in the air.

    Re: dont ask for help here

    your right it is public and i should be better prepared that not everyone thinks like me when it comes to taming the tongue. I fail a lot too in that area. I learnt that this week for sure. i need to see more people than my homeschooling. league, above rubies friends. I forgot what the real world is like.

  49. Redhead says:

    is she saying she shouldn’t hang with her Above Rubies friends or needs to be back with them? I can’t understand her wording.

  50. Redhead says:

    BTW, what’s an orange blaze hat?

  51. sissy hankshaw says:

    35 yeah I’m already worried about our neighbors. We just moved to a very christian area and when I met the neighbors they made a comment about the last person who lived here not making their kids go to church. They are going to think we are sinful heathens when they realize we don’t go at all.

    37 that is insane!! I’ve never heard of a church like that, I guess I’m sheltered. My moms first MIL did once tell her she was going to hell unless she spoke in tongues. A different kind of crazy for sure, but still crazy. I knew churches could be controlling but that’s worse than I thought.

  52. smartassmama says:

    Maybe that should be a hint to get out more.

  53. snafoo says:

    What is she doing on the formula boards if she is a LLL leader?

    Also, the only way a diaper can freeze is if it’s wet…maybe she should change her babies every now and again? She is a trainwreck.

  54. kateri25 says:

    uhm I can’t read Patooty’s wording. Is English not her first language? Or is it just me?

  55. CJ says:

    Has anyone informed AR momma that snowsuits in car seats are not a good idea, no matter where she lives?

    And yes, changing the diaper frequently should solve her problem.

  56. Flat Stainley says:

    49-It’s what one wears over their tin-foil hat to hide that they have teh crazies.

  57. smartassmama says:

    I think it’s one of those hats from Regretsy the other night.

  58. Mommy Grizzly says:

    LOL You are all so funny. Blaze Orange is the safety orange of like road crew vests and stuff. Super highly visible.

  59. smartassmama says:

    Ah ok. So do they do anything for warmth?

  60. smartassmama says:

    Is it pretty much the same is hunter orange?

  62. Kirsty says:

    I got a pm from her too. I can’t help but wonder if it’s passive aggressive either. Something about calling a cab and leaving her car to whoever next time. No, genius, not to whoever, CAA- they will tow it and fix it. If it’s 40 below zero then the only logical thing to do IN THE CITY is go inside. Duh. It frightens me that this woman homeschools. THIS is what she is passing on?

  63. tat2mommy says:

    And now she has a friend…oh boy
    How can someone call this woman “real”?

  64. Syrinx says:

    60. I have the urge to reply to that thread and tell her “yes, you are.”

  65. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Maybe Blaze Orange is something different in Canada. I was just on Flats FB and she is talking about breaking out Blaze Orange hats. Lets ask her when she comes around…

  66. DocsNemesis says:

    I was just going to say….her homeschooling scares me. I hope she gets her kids some outside tutoring for English skills. lol

  67. Flat Stainley says:

    64- No, it’s the same thing, I just found it uncanny that Mars day is tomorrow. Time to break out the tin foil hats-and the Blaze Orange ones, too! 😉

  68. Redhead says:

    Can DODS have like a website for quotes from these krahzies? Kinda like IMDB.. it would be great for FB updates. haha 😉

  69. Flat Stainley says:

    DODS needs a HC collaborative!

  70. CJ says:

    Are all of you HC mamas too?

  71. Redhead says:

    Well, I am addicted to the yarn on HC 😀

  72. Flat Stainley says:

    I dont have a HC, but I am contemplating it… 🙂

  73. Flat Stainley says:

    You and me both, Redhead!

  74. Redhead says:

    that woodland tale and woodland in spring are calling me

  75. Mommy Grizzly says:

    do you knit, redhead or are you just a pretty collector? I knit and crochet, but if I keep looking at HC much more, I’ll end up a pretty collector!

  76. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I love me some pretties. *sigh*

  77. CJ says:

    Flat, what would you sell? Knitting?

  78. DocsNemesis says:

    I’m a knitter but I can’t collect pretties. Too broke. God help us when we finish school though…*prays for deep pockets* I have one skein of pretty yarn I got for knitting up shorties and two skeins of Woodland in Spring. And solid cestari. My next big purchase will be 2 skeins of brown BBR. lol

  79. Redhead says:

    I can’t knit very well at all. I can crochet, basic stuff right now but I am working on getting better. I love the look of knit, especially with colorful yarn, I just am not coordinated with 2 needles!
    My youngest is out of diapers so I’m really wanting to make some pretties for winter- hats/gloves/scarves, etc, since we don’t need longies this year.

  80. DocsNemesis says:

    Redhead-I was terrible with straight needles. Have you tried using circulars? Even for flat knitting, I find them SOOOO much easier!

    I’m a licensed EviePants knitter. /flex. lol

  81. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Oh, Redhead, you really should get yourself some cheap yarn (that isnt too fuzzy, it makes learning harder) and try to figure it out. There are tons of great tuts online and I’m SURE someone would help you, if you got stuck. If you have a webcam, we could do a webcam ‘lesson’ or 2, so you can get your questions answered in real time.

    Yarn working is SO much fun.

  82. CJ says:

    Redhead, I crochet too. I am leaving knitting until after the kids are old enough to leave the projects alone. The little one likes to pull my hook out all the time.
    I just saw an ad in my crochet magazine for a book of patterns that are designed to look like knit. You may like that.

  83. Kirsty says:

    I had a terrible Sugarbubbie habit that has turned into a Family Roots addiction. There is not enough time in my life to work it all up but I’m a sucker for all things soft and pretty. I also have a love for OBV but I can’t sew the stuff to save my life.

  84. CJ says:

    The pattern booklet is called Knit 1, Purl 2 in Crochet! and is sold on AnniesAttic

  85. Redhead says:

    I have a circular I just got– haven’t used it yet though. And some cheapo yarn. I stayed up a while last night watching youtube vids, but got annoyed and stopped! ahaha!

  86. Flat Stainley says:

    CJ, I can’t knit fully yet. I has teh knitting stoopids! Sewing items, mainly.
    Mommy Grizzly, we need to talk!

  87. Mommy Grizzly says:

    find yourself a simple scarf patter, or, just knit/purl every other row so you can see how 2 sided knits look, it’s easier to see mistakes that way.

    I would love to help you learn a new addiction. I used to have meet-ups to teach Army wives how to knit and crochet while our DHs were deployed. It was awesome to see it click in their minds and hands. They would be so proud of themselves and it was a great time of fellowship.

  88. Flat Stainley says:

    Those youtube videos are helpful, but I need someone to talk to me about a certain subject in knitting. MommyGrizzly???

  89. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Flat, I was thinking that too! I need some diapers made or suggestions on a good diaper pattern for the belly critter…

  90. Mommy Grizzly says:

    IZ HERE! IZ HERE! Quitchore bellerin!

  91. Flat Stainley says:


  92. Mommy Grizzly says:

    download yahoo messenger. There is a super great voice chat/webcam part that DH and I use when my kids are playing games on my iPhone. All you need is a webcam and a mic. It would make knitting classes long distance a CINCH!

  93. Flat Stainley says:

    MommyGrizzly, go to FB!

  94. Flat Stainley says:

    How much are webcams?

  95. Mommy Grizzly says:

    HOLY SHIT woman, I’m GOING! I’m still arguing with the idiot uber christian people and a couple of other threads, I can only click and type SO FAST!

  99. Flat Stainley says:

    Where did you get them, CJ?

  100. Flat Stainley says:

    Haha! Don’t worry Docs! I have a rubbermaid bin 1/2 full! I NEEED help!

  101. Flat Stainley says:

    Besides, SOMEONE has to do the LT, right?

  102. Mommy Grizzly says:

    webcams are CHEAP! Walmart, Amazon… dude, use swag bucks!

  103. DocsNemesis says:

    True, true.

    Oh btw, the mountain meadow? So much softer after washing! I mean, it wasn’t terrible before but wow, it really softened up!

  104. CJ says:

    We just got ours at WalMart.

  105. Redhead says:

    I should have Sugerbubbie and ENC wool arriving today, but my stupid mail person is taking their sweet time getting here! AGH!

  111. smartassmama says:

    That works out perfectly! I just not got to watch it. Every time someone posted it on FB it wouldn’t work on my phone.
    I have a high school friend on FB who used that guy’s picture as his profile picture for like 2 weeks. I knew there had to be funny behind it!

    I stay offline on FB chat because there are people I don’t want to talk to. I’ll go back now if you are ready to come out of hiding…

  116. Flat Stainley says:

    Okay, but my husband and kids can stay in the closet!

  117. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Heck yeah, crackers and water for them. Lobster for mommy!

  118. Flat Stainley says:


  119. megs2486 says:

    I’m terrible at knitting. I can knit a scarf. That’s it. Crochet, I’m much better at. I ❤ me some crochet!

  120. Mommy Grizzly says:

    There are positives and negatives with knit and crochet. The biggest neg for crochet is that it requires A LOT more yarn per stitch. Sometimes as much as 3 times more yarn… That’s not bad, necessarily, but when you are using a yarn that is upwards of $20-$90 an ounce, that makes a huge difference in the overall affordability of a project. It also changes how heavy the project will end up being upon completion.

    I am going to be getting some Qiviut that is just more than $90 per ounce (locally) and I wouldn’t DARE crochet it, out of pure expense of the matter.

    Alternatively, I LOVE crochet market bags with #10 cotton thread. Like I said, there is benefits for both!

  121. Mommy Grizzly says:

    OOOOh some pricelessness. Miles is giving advice to the frozen diaper, Above Rubies mama. How’s about that for an idiot leading the idiot?

  122. Redhead says:

    I think crochet with colorful yarn looks muddled. I love the straight lines of knitting.
    I love crocheted dish cloths, bags, hats and etc. Just not some of the longies and stuff I have seen. My favorite pair of wool shorties is crocheted, but it is solid blueberry blue and felted, but those things WORK!

  123. Redhead says:

    And I don’t like cotton yarn! I just got some for washcloths and stuff and it doesn’t have the stretch and flexibility that wool does. I ♥ wool.

  124. Mommy Grizzly says:

    ITA, Redhead. Because of the nature of crochet, super colorful striping yarn would not look right unless it’s knitted. My mom used to make face cloths with the cotton yarn and I just never could get myself to love them. I like cotton for things that I want to have limited stretch, like the market bags or purses.

  125. Kirsty says:

    120- I’m so jealous! I would kill,quite literally, to get some Qivuit! Sadly I can only ever find it in lace weight and ridonckulous expensive. But it is heavenly!!!

  126. Queen of Quite A Lot says:

    Blaze orange hats are worn by hunters so someone else doesn’t accidentally shoot them.

    And about patooty- Bless her heart.

  127. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, it’s very spendy which is why I’m waiting until I have no more on my project list and can concentrate on enjoying it.

    What weight are you looking for? I want lace weight because it matures and fluffs with use and age so I don’t want super thick stuff.

  128. CJ says:

    Crochet is the reason that I don’t buy super expensive yarns. It takes me about 10oz of worsted yarn to make longies for DS so I like to stick with the cheaper stuff for now.

  129. Mommy Grizzly says:

    yeah, yikes!

    I am about to teach DD how to crochet, I am just waiting for DH to get the yarn down from up in the garage. It’s still packed from our move and I’m not brave enough to wrestle with all the crap he has in front of it. DD is super excited to learn, though.

  130. CJ says:

    DS has tried crochet but it was slow going. He used the knifty knitter this week and caught onto that really quickly.

  131. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I thought about that but she wants to make hot pads and I think if she gets the hang of knitting on the acrylic yarn I have, she will be able to do hot pads in no time. She has done like loom hot pads and latch hook and stuff but with all the moving around, honestly, I’ve been slack! Plus, she wants to do it the way I do it. She’s 9 and has good dexterity and follows directions well so I think she will be fine if I can just get the girl, yarn, hook and patience all in the same place at the same time.

  132. CJ says:

    I have yarn and hook if you want me to mail them. 🙂

    And make sure that she doesn’t do her hot pads on that acrylic. Melty and ouch!

  133. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, hmm, no. I already got her some cotton stuff, it will be more like trivets, but the acrylic is just to get the hang of because the cotton strands separate. I HATE acrylic NOW but I have a tote full that I have collected over the years… she is going to start out by making blankets for her American Girl dolls.

  134. Mommy Grizzly says:

    CJ, you so don’t deserve a penistree with armtesticles. It makes me giggle every time we talk.

  135. Nacho says:

    What does my monster look like ?

  136. Mommy Grizzly says:

    IMO, a play dough bunny. Not to be confused with a play BOY bunny… :giggle:

  137. DocsNemesis says:

    So just how terrible are GM’s? I want to try one for some reason, I keep staring at FSOT and Spots. I know I shouldn’t though…stupid cloth diaper addiction…>.<

  138. smartassmama says:

    Ah demmit. H2BAM caved and gave Ice Ice Diaper a closed thread. lol

  139. Mommy Grizzly says:

    It’s actually a good idea. It was obvious that she was after attention and every time someone posted, good or bad, it restarted the cycle. She is such a fucking nut case.

  140. smartassmama says:

    134 – my purple Easter fraternal twin.

    138 – I know. It’s for the best. But the downside being that the weirdo got her way. And if you haven’t been back to the prayer thread since this afternoon, it picked up and got quite funny.

  141. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I havent, link me please?

  142. Aj says:

    Ha ha, has anyone noticed ajane STILL has her newbie wool for sale? I don’t know that I’ve ever witnessed that women sell a piece of wool. I mean, her little man is already 1!

  143. CJ says:

    133. I know! I can be a bit of a bitch sometimes, but definitely not at the testicle-waving penis monster level!

  144. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, you need to talk to DODM2 about putting a space in your name or something and getting you a re-issue of a monster. Somethings gotta be better than a penistree armtesticle!

  145. CJ says:

    or I could just come out of the closet completely and use the name that I use everywhere else. LOL

    Although I like the idea of making you giggle every time I post. 😛

  146. Mommy Grizzly says:

    You don’t have to come out of the closet for me… ;;)

  147. smartassmama says:

    I see you found it, 140. 😉
    Sorry I had to post & run. It was bedtime diaper time.
    Thanks for the links. Maybe it will compel her to answer & try to refute you. I knew it was cult-like, but I’m curious to see how she portrays it.

  148. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I’m wondering if it will get me a strike. Seriously, as much as I think it’s a Cult, look up the actual factual definition of cult and it fits. I am just not sure if people will be able to look past what I have in my siggy and see that my assessment was non-judgemental and only slightly opinion influenced. That’s why I backed up with links for both sides.

  149. DocsNemesis says:

    I’m confused…who was distasteful? The OP/cult thing or it being said its cult like?

  150. Mommy Grizzly says:

    ask. come on, shit stir!

  151. Redhead says:

    She probably got her panties in a wad because MG said it was a cult.
    But really, how can it NOT be a cult?
    There are thousands of women who have had their home life go to pits because of Nancy Campbell and her nutty thoughts.

    AND.. OH OH AND- Nancy Campbell and a couple of her daughters have “volunteers/helpers” come live with them for months at a time. Mothers who adore the Campbell’s think this is a honor for their teenage daughter to be chosen to basically be the (unpaid, overworked) live-in nanny/housekeeper/maid/chef of any of the Campbell family. What it is really, is free labor. Most of the staff at AR is volunteers as well, mainly teenage girls thinking they are serving Christ while Nancy doesn’t have to pay anyone to stuff envelopes.

  152. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I’d say you should go post that, Redhead, but, well, HA HA HA! sorry.

  153. Redhead says:


  154. DocsNemesis says:

    Question-when you list on Spots, do the pics need to be on something like Flickr, or can you upload from your puter? I don’t want to pay until I have everything ready to go…and I’m not even close…danged kids and their clothes!

  155. CJ says:

    Docs, I would guess that you need photo hosting. For a HC store, you can upload from the computer but you pay more to have HC host the photos for you.

  156. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Kriket is on our side.

  157. Mommy Grizzly says:

    OK, so I have to say I am super proud of Redhead. She is currently molesting yarn and making it bend to her needs. ;):D

  158. CJ says:

    rawr, That is hot.

  159. Redhead says:

    I am, and I am not wearing pants while I do it, either!

  160. Mommy Grizzly says:

    IMO, pants get in the way of a proper shaft wrap.

  161. CJ says:

    OMG. I almost choked on my cookie!

  162. CJ says:

    not *that* cookie!

  163. Mommy Grizzly says:

    LMFAO, THAT almost made me choke on my potato.

  164. CJ says:

    What the heck are you doing eating potato at this time? Cookies are much better.

  165. Redhead says:

    I has NO potatoes or cookies!!!

  166. Mommy Grizzly says:

    That would mean I’d have to 1-make them or 2-get dressed and go to the store. And what do you mean, at this time…?? It’s 8:30 here. Potatoes with butter and cheese are nom nom. I mean, I’d totally trade it for a cookie, but, something is better than nothing.

  167. Mommy Grizzly says:

    ooooh the HORRORRRRR! That’s just communist. My potato was picked this weekend by my kids at the You pick it farm here. *yum yum*

  168. CJ says:

    What!?! there is a timezone before BC? I thought you were in the same time zone as me. Yeah, I’m baking cookies at 9:30 b/c it has been 2 months and I am craving them!

  169. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I’d bake cookies but I want to sleep tonight. Heat rises, kitchen downstairs, bedroom directly upstairs. Yeah, not good math. Alaskans don’t invest in AC so I need to just feel good enough, early enough in the day that I make cookies to last a night or 2. FYI, Alaska is on it’s OWN time zone. Well, I mean, we share with Hawaii, but…

  170. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I just sent my 7 and 9 year old on a quest to find cookies. If there are ANY in the house, they will find them.

  171. Mommy Grizzly says:

    ::wub:: they found some ::wub::

  172. Mommy Grizzly says:

    OMG and they are even pink! with sparkle dots on them!

  173. smartassmama says:

    Time zones completely screw with my head.
    I made cookies last night, and they’re gone now. The 24ct Pillsbury refrigerated dough squares? They’re yummy. I don’t like hard edges though, so I ate the soft middle and fed the outside to the dog. She was appreciative. It’s a system we have worked out.
    The husband did cheat and have a few of them I’m sure. And I shared with the kids. They saw them & had to have 🙂

    And I Freakin love potatoes! Potatoes over cookies anyway. :hides:
    I especially like them in my steamer with some seasoned salt, parsley, basil, then some homemade butter on top. Nom Nom Nom.

  174. smartassmama says:


  175. Redhead says:

    I’d eat a good chunk of expensive artisan cheese over cookies anyday. Cheese and medjool dates. So good.

  176. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Potatoes are one of the foods I’ve been able to keep down when nothing else worked. Comfort food at it’s finest!

    If you bake your cookies with tin foil over them, it will keep the edges softer, HINT HINT!

  177. CJ says:

    I am not a potato lover. :hide: We rarely eat potatoes here. I do love cheese. Sweets are my downfall though; cookies, cake, muffins, granola bars, chocolate. I have no self control.

  178. Mommy Grizzly says:

    You should have married my DH… I swear he has never met a cheese he hasn’t loved. Growing up, I always got a cheeseburger hold the cheese. I eat more now but I have to remind him when he makes my sammiches that I like to taste more than just cheese.

  179. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Obviously! That is why you wave your testicalarms like you just don’t care!!

  180. smartassmama says:

    I had no idea about the tin foil. I will have to try that. Neato.

  181. CJ says:

    Flailing in the wind…..waiting for Redhead to give me a proper shaft wrap with her loverly yarn.

  182. Mommy Grizzly says:

    lol! I am eating Kettle Popcorn now, and just spit it all over my keyboard.

  183. CJ says:

    mmmmm….kettle corn.

    Sorry Keyboard!

  184. Mommy Grizzly says:

    The frosted pink cookies got traded in. I shared a bag of microwave with DD and DS2 while I laughed at you guys and they watched Backyardigans.

  185. CJ says:

    Your backyard friends…..

    How on earth did I miss commenting on your frosted pink cookie? Not to be confused with a frostbitten pink cookie.

  186. Mommy Grizzly says:

    LOL yeah, I keep my pink cookie well protected in -40 weather. My DH says it’s pretty common for soldiers to get their “twigs and giggle berries” frost bitten though.

    IDK how you missed it, go see #172.

  187. CJ says:

    Sparkle dots too! ROFL

  188. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I know, right?? Have you noticed, CJ, that more nights than not, we are the only ones keeping the midnight oil burning?? we need to get more DODS mamas that are on the west cost!

  189. CJ says:

    I know, I miss all the daytime drama though and then show up at night when the crickets are chirping and the tumbleweeds are rolling by. It is so quiet at night!

  190. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I know. There are slow days when there aren’t but a couple of comments, those days suck.

  191. Sala says:

    I thought clitter not sparkle dots was used to decorate pink cookies.

  192. Mommy Grizzly says:

    LMAO! Ah, my mistake!

  193. Redhead says:

    185 it isn’t “frost byte” it is “frost nipped”. 🙂

  194. Redhead says:

    WTH is Patooty talking about?
    “it saddens me in the posts that the greatest nastinest comes from within their own families who should be their greatest allies.”


  195. DocsNemesis says:

    I’m on the west coast, but I go to bed at 10 and I usually go watch netflix with the fiance before that.

    Redhead-I think she’s referring to us talking about AR being a cult and such. I think she was saying that we’re nasties for not doing whatever we’re told to do? I don’t know, half of her writing confuses me. English skills, she needs thems.

  196. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Not just English skillz, just communication skillz. I would take to translating her say so if there was one. does not have a translator for ignorant, brainwasheze.

  197. DocsNemesis says:

    My 4 year old must have good taste. I was going to get a skein of variegated wool of the andes from knitpicks for her winter hat. Cheap and the colors work with her coat. Then I made the mistake of looking at MM colorways with her here. She’s decided she needs Ellyl or Morning Dew for her hat. Rofl.

  198. Snickerdoodle says:

    I’m sure Im just feeling a bit sad today that I can’t afford to buy all the cool diapers that I want to when it seems like so many other moms can but now Patooty is REALLY annoying me. She WAS Just entertaining me but now I’m annoyed.

    She posted a thread in the main forum Called “$$ no issue, what do i buy nb.”

    Really? why would you even need to put that in your post title? Or even mention it? I understand if you are on a budget and need to let people know you are looking for cheap options but what, she is wanting to find the most expensive option? Sorry but that just rubbed me the WRONG way today.

  199. Mommy Grizzly says:

    That is totally not OK to rub my Snickerdoodle the wrong way. I mean, seriously? It’ll make all the yummy snickerdoodle fall off!

    Honestly though, I would bet that she is making that issue about money not being an object because I made that crack yesterday about her BELOVED Above Rubies being a CULT that encourages having more children than there is finances for. She turned quite a bit in her posts after that.

    I wasn’t suggesting she is poor, but, I mean, if the shoe fits…!

  200. DocsNemesis says:

    Yeah I agree…it rubs me the wrong way too.

    I hope that if/when we have our last one (fiance is undecided…I think having 5 little kids is taking its toll, lol), money won’t be an issue. I couldn’t ever make a thread like that though, and honestly….even with it not being an issue, I’d still be getting something practical. Washes easily, dries easily, etc. And lots of wool. Oh so much wool.

  201. DocsNemesis says:

    199-thats what I thought too. Shes trying to casually defend her AR thing. Heh.

  202. smartassmama says:

    You guys know she has money. How else would her husband make toys for every boy & girl in the world?

  203. Mommy Grizzly says:

    LMAO… 202… and he delivers them between break downs of their beater without a heater. Seriously, though, I would rather be poor than a fucking idiot. It’s obvious, his money doesn’t buy her any brain cells.

  204. Snickerdoodle says:

    Mommy Grizzly- Aww thanks for the Snickerdoodle love! I feel all warm and… crispy inside. 😀
    And yeah I totally see what you are saying about her trying to defend herself from the AR have no money live in degradation deprivation thing. That makes total sense.

    DocsNemesis- Im glad Im not the only one who feels wrongly rubbed. 🙂

  205. Snickerdoodle says:

    202 & 203 – You totally just made me snicker. out loud. 🙂

  206. dundundun says:

    Apparently being financially stable doesn’t mean you’re intellectually sound.

    Maybe they can use some of those flowing bucks to fix the van so her kids don’t turn into ice cubes again.

  207. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I LOVE me some snickerdoodle. I take major issue with anybody that picks at them. MY COOKIE!

  208. dundundun says:

    All this cookie talk is killing me. I’m nose deep in a “lifestyle change” so I can lose the weight to get back to my pre-preg weight.

    Grilled chicken and banana for lunch. I WANT SOME PIZZA, DAMNIT.

  209. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I like my grilled chicken on a garlic butter sauce on top of a nice fluffy and crispy crust surrounded by a lot of drippy cheese and veggies…

    GL with your ‘lifestyle change’. I’m having ribs tomorrow!

  210. dundundun says:


  211. Mommy Grizzly says:

    *kissy face kissy face* No, really, though, I spend most of my week throwing up but tomorrow is a joint birthday party for 3 of the kids (mine and 2 nephews) and the birthday princess ordered ribs from the hosting Auntie. Hopefully, I wont be throwing up tomorrow to. *bleh*

  212. smartassmama says:

    That’s a smart kid! Ribs for her birthday – my kinda chick. Steak & taters are fine choices too.

    And if they’d hook up those magic reindeer they wouldn’t have to worry with the battery issues we mortals do.

    “I say a little prayer for you. . . Forever! Forever!”

  213. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, she has good food taste. We do steak and taters a lot. DH grew up on a cattle ranch. Potato is his idea of a veggie. He’s gotten better over the course of our marriage but I still see a lot of plates of meat and potato…

    I don’t need your prayers, I’m Catholic. 😉

  214. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Someone should go suggest to her that the BEST NB dipes are SC at $60 a poop.

  215. DocsNemesis says:

    SC? $60 a pop hurts. owwww….

  216. tat2mommy says:

    What does SMH mean?

  217. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Slap my heiny? IDK, where do you see it? Context?

  218. tat2mommy says:

    Kattayana Mom says it to the loon in the last post on this page…

  219. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Ah yeah, I wondered that too. I PMed her to ask.

  220. tat2mommy says:

    lol I guess I coulda done that Thanks! 🙂

  221. Mommy Grizzly says:

    its cool, I wondered too.

  222. DocsNemesis says:

    Super Mieke Hieney.

  223. smartassmama says:

    I think it’s Shakes My Head.

    Or swaddle my heiney. 🙂

  224. tat2mommy says:

    ahhhh shakes my head makes perfect sense….what I was doing as well lol

  225. Mommy Grizzly says:

    no doubt!

  226. smartassmama says:

    213 – I know, it’s that damn song from My Best Friend’s Wedding. It gets stuck in my head. And now I’m going to download it.

  227. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I’m downloading the Harry Potter movies…

  228. DocsNemesis says:

    My fiance says Harry Potter is for nerds. Yeah, the guy that met his fiance on WoW. Haha.

  229. smartassmama says:

    I was a bridesmaid in a wedding where one of the ushers flew from Virginia to Memphis and met the couple for the first time. He was their guild leader?

    My former best friend and my husband used to jokingly argue all the time that one was a bigger nerd than the other because she liked Harry Potter and he plays WoW.
    Meh. I’m not interested in either.

  230. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, hmm… ok. I’m not even going to get into what I think of guys that play are unemployed and play wow. 😉 Besides, my 9 year old got a gift card for her birthday and wanted the movies, so I got them from itunes so she can watch them on her itouch or on the TV.

  231. Flat Stainley says:

    Mommy Grizzly, are you there? I think I need to knit up! The rise in these finished shorties from FSOT are too long. Is it possible to take the waistband off and then unravel as much as I need to, and then re-attach the waistband?

  232. smartassmama says:

    My husband’s not unemployed 🙂

  233. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I’m here. Go to FB.

  234. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I wasn’t talking about your DH, 232.

  235. Flat Stainley says:

    YOU ROCK!!! I’m there.

  236. smartassmama says:

    Ah ok. I thought maybe I had made him sound that way before, because he was off work for a while (and have I mentioned I’m so glad he’s gone back?!)

  237. Mommy Grizzly says:

    No, no, no! I was in the middle of sending my comment in response to the one above yours, you just butted in… HA!

  238. smartassmama says:


    And since y’all brought up cookies last night, I made a batch (of the pre-made fridge stuff) at 1:30am. Chocolate chip. And I covered half the cookie sheet with foil, and they were crazy tasty. And mooshy. Thank you! I’d send you one as a token of my appreciation, but I’ve, um, misplaced it.

  239. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, I buy that about as much as I buy it when my kids say they cleaned under their bed.

  240. dundundun says:

    I miss WoW. I could probably play again now that the children are a little older.

    I waste just as much time playing Cafe World so I might as well play WoW 😡

  241. Mommy Grizzly says:

    LOL, 240. I should make my opinion more clear. I am all for people that play games as long as they are not neglecting their life or their kids. I, personally, have a major issue with pay to play games but for some people I can see how it works for them. I, myself, love me some Oblivion. I just don’t understand how someone can be unemployed and play a pay to play game. But, I’ll concede that maybe its just me.

  242. bittymomma says:

    My hubby and I met in WoW 🙂 He just happened to live fairly close to me. I love WoW love stories ❤

  243. smartassmama says:

    I’m too cheap myself. I like solitaire. And Mahjong. I bought some games for my old cell phone, but they weren’t monthly play.
    Now that I have my Droid, every single App has been free. I ♥ it.

    I also use StumbleUpon to find games. I’m just too cheap to do it. And I really resent it for some issues between DH and I, where he doesn’t want to pull his weight and do his fair share in the house or with the kids because of some game. So he plays a lot less now. But even with that I’m not satisfied because I don’t like paying $14.99 a month for him to play a few times a week. I am too picky.

  244. DocsNemesis says:

    Well…considering niether of us play WoW now…that and he was working when I met him. He moved cross country to be with me and started going to school, which he’s been doing for the past year (as working minimum wage for the rest of his life just wasn’t appealing :P). He’s been looking for work though-several times he’s been through 2 rounds of interviews and then didn’t get the job, it sucks. He’s getting his CNA this quarter though, he’ll be doing that instead of working at Walmart or something.

  245. DocsNemesis says:

    243-that been us before too. Even when we were paying, we weren’t playing much at all. It was a waste of money….yet at the same time, its not like it’d be good for either us to play ALL the time. I wish Blizzard would do some sort of time based system. Like if you play 3 hours a week, you only pay $3 a month. Haha, yeah right.

  246. CJ says:

    I’m laughing over the Snickerdoodle rubbing! I have no idea what a snickerdoodle actually is, but it sounds hilarious!

    Now I have to go back and read the rest.

  247. DocsNemesis says:

    Its a cookie. A yummy, delicious cookie of yumminess.

  248. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Snickerdoodle is type of sugar cookie ball rolled in cinnamon and shuga so when it’s baked it flattens out with heavenly deliciousness all over it.

  249. Flat Stainley says:

    Mommy Grizzly, I :wub: you! You hold my hand as I preform surgery on my wool shorties!

  250. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Why, I’m a yarn surgeon. I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night!

  251. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I helped Redhead learn how to molest yarn and I’m helping you learn how to murder it. This is really not making me look very nice.

  252. Just Peachy says:

    I iz making lactation cookies 😀

  253. Just Peachy says:


  254. Mommy Grizzly says:

    what the hell are lactation cookies??

  255. Just Peachy says:

    They are cookies that are supposed to help with breastmilk supply issues

  256. Mommy Grizzly says:

    dude, no, peachy, really, the shorties she got in a trade were designed for a pregnant 2 year old. Full belly cover style and all. Seriously, the rise is longer than the legs.

  257. Just Peachy says:

    WTF and who knit them???

  258. Mommy Grizzly says:

    She’s trying to save them because they cannot be used the way they are. They cover more than overalls would.

  259. Mommy Grizzly says:

    She doesn’t know and she didn’t realize in a reasonable enough time to return so she’s trying to frog some of the rise so she can reknit it.

  260. DocsNemesis says:

    Awww…now I really want to knit you something. That doesn’t look like its designed for a monster. D:

  261. DocsNemesis says:

    What kind of yarn was used? Something nice? Cause I’d be extra mad. I hope you can fix it

  262. Mommy Grizzly says:

    nice enough, I would share the information but IDK if she wants it public and her fingers are busy frogging. It was part of a trade so she’s less mad than she would be if she would have paid for it with PP or it had been a custom. Those were the first questions I asked.

  263. Flat Stainley says:

    Doctor Grizzly, the frog has been extracted, the heart is still beating! The veins that made up the 20″ rise are now neat little balls, kind of like CJ’s balls, just detatched. The woolies have been successfully castrated!

    *** It was not a custom, it was a trade turned crazy fit! lol.

  264. CJ says:

    The lactation cookies actually sound good Peach. Oatmeal, yum!

    And snickerdoodles sound delish too.

  265. Mommy Grizzly says:

    263 — thank god. Mummy, I was skeerd!

  266. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Now you just need to reattach the yarn and start molesting the frog balls.

  267. Flat Stainley says:

    :Inserting the tissue expander now:
    (circular needles)

  268. Flat Stainley says:


  269. DocsNemesis says:

    Somehow the name “lactation cookie” totally ruins it for me.

  270. Mommy Grizzly says:

    IDK why, I like milk with my cookies. Peach, you can keep your milk to yourself. You aren’t quite enough of a cow for my taste.

  271. Just Peachy says:

    Thanks LOL. I have been losing weight. Its about damn time someone noticed hmph

  272. Flat Stainley says:

    :not THAT tissue expander! We need a smaller size!:

  273. Flat Stainley says:

    :Not that one either!:
    Can we get a competent doc in here, stat?

  274. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I told you that you’d need to experiment, do it fast while the good drugs are still working!

  275. Flat Stainley says:

    LOL! It wasn’t a reference to your competence, oh great surgeon grizzly! The patient is waking up! Can I get an extra shot of sedative?

  276. Mommy Grizzly says:

    For you or the patient??

  277. Flat Stainley says:

    Both! The patient has stabilized, but that was stressful. The size 5s have been inserted through the hip and have made a complete circumnavigation about the body. We can relax a little now.

  278. Mommy Grizzly says:

    With all that fancy talk, I almost want to know if you will circumnavigate my body…??

  279. Flat Stainley says:

    I don’t think I am qualified. 🙂

  280. Flat Stainley says:

    Surgeon Grizzly, are you there? I need to know whether I should decrease the bloodflow to the pelvic area prior to giving a few ccs of brown, or to purl with the existing tissue?

  281. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I had technical difficulties with FB. I’m back now.

  282. Mommy Grizzly says:

    My daughter just made me cookies. :wub: shuga cookies and they are dewishus!

  283. Redhead says:

    does anyone know this person? They seem to be stalking random WAHM giveaways & fans messaging them about pacifiers over the age of 2 being wrong..
    Kinda creepy.!/White1985?v=info

  284. Mommy Grizzly says:

    not working for me but I say someone needs a big as MYOB tattoo on their forehead.

    Redhead: I need pictures.

  285. Redhead says:

    MG- I took pics but lost my connection cord for my computer! I will get them when I locate it! 🙂

  286. Mommy Grizzly says:

    LIKELY story. Can you send pic texts?

  287. Nacho says:

    What are we sending pics of ? LOL I missed it…somewhere between Redhead not wearing any pants, and then pic texts…

  288. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Copied from this dumb asses profile.

    “I will respect your right to your opinion but that doesn’t mean i’ll respect your opinion or your take on any such intellectual issues of such nature.
    In all seriousness , I believe that people should say what they mean and mean what they say.
    Therefor I understand that just because I think something it however doesn’t make it so.

    Secondly I believe however that it is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought of as a fool, rather than to open your mouth and prove it so. That being said, Maybe i’ll add to this list of “I think” and “I believe” things when I have more time.”

    Fucking idiot says it’s better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open his mouth and prove it, but goes around to strangers pages and asserts his opinion? Even better they are contradicting themselves all over the place and uses words like intellectual but cannot spell therefore (spelled the wrong form) correctly or remember to capitalize and punctuate properly.

    I LOVE the people Redhead brings home to meet the family!

  289. Nacho says:

    RIGHT!!! HE sucks!

  290. Mommy Grizzly says:

    288 – the whole bit about Redhead not wearing pants was while she was knitting. I helped her learn how to knit and now I want to see a picture of her PROJECT!

  291. Nacho says:

    I see! I also want to see pics of this project! 😉

  292. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I showed Flat a picture of my project. I made my 3 year old model it. He looks so cute in it.

  293. CJ says:

    FB dude sounds like a spammer to me.

  294. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Does anybody else smell the TROLL underneath the bridge??

  295. Flat Stainley says:

    It is gorgeous work! I am almost done the shorties, just need the waistband. I wanna see redhead’s project too! I am going camping tomorrow, so don’t have too much fun w/o me!

  296. Mommy Grizzly says:

    YAY! I am soo proud of you, Flat. That was a serious case of wooltastic surgery you did today.

  297. CJ says:

    Okay, make sure I’m not lost here….

    Redhead has dropped being a hooker and has picked up the needles to knit with the online assistance of Grizz.
    Flat received shorties fit for a pregnant toddler so she frogged them back to fix them.

    Am I good?

  298. Mommy Grizzly says:

    You are good.

  299. CJ says:

    phew. I was starting to think that I was mixing people up!

  300. Mommy Grizzly says:

    nope, you can just rest your pretty little pee pee tree head on the thought that you have it all figured out! 😉

  301. CJ says:

    Sweet! I always tell DH that I have it all figured out and he just doesn’t believe me.

  302. Mommy Grizzly says:

    that’s cause he is jealous that your pee pee tree head is bigger than… I’m not even going to finish that thought.

  303. CJ says:

    oh lawd! Don’t you make me spit out my wine girl!

  304. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I swear, I should be the official food spitter outter causer. You all keep spitting your food at me and I might get meself a complex!

  305. CJ says:

    At least it’s yummy food.

  306. Mommy Grizzly says:

    not if it’s pre-chewed and shared! LOL

  307. CJ says:

    I promise that I am not chewing my wine at all.

  308. Mommy Grizzly says:

    oh, well, that changes things. If that’s the case, you can just spit it right into my mouth. Your saliva just might the be the note that is missing!

  309. CJ says:

    after that, consider it spat.

    (Spat? That just sounds wrong.)

  310. Mommy Grizzly says:

    LOL we crack me up.

  311. CJ says:


    I was just looking at The Fifth Monday shop. Have you looked? I’m a little drooly right now.

  312. Mommy Grizzly says:

    IDK what that is?

  313. CJ says:

    A collab between Universal Mama and Necessitae (I think) on HC. Link in next post in case it gets held for moderation.

  314. Mommy Grizzly says:

    wow, there are some beautiful things there!

  315. CJ says:

    I want OBV yoga pants. It is getting cold and I need comfy clothes!

  316. Mommy Grizzly says:

    its too dry here. wearing something like that would mean shocks every time you turn around.

  317. CJ says:

    It is pretty darn wet here today. I feel like I’m on the coast!

  318. Mommy Grizzly says:

    well, it’s wet here too, currently. It’s been raining all weekend, most of this week and will be raining through most of next week.

    I mean, in the winter it gets super dry. You have to be really careful with what you wear and I use almost twice as much fabric softener just to help combat the statics for the kids.

  319. CJ says:

    Do you get much snow then? Or just the extreme cold? Too cold to snow maybe…

  320. Mommy Grizzly says:

    A combination of the three. We average temps around 10 above for most of Dec and usually around 0 to -10 for Jan/Feb. Obviously, we see colder temps and warmer temps too. Lots of wind, that doesn’t help the dry air, and lots of snow that hits all at once, rarely little bits at a time.

  321. CJ says:

    Oh sure, make me break out the online temperature conversion website. 😛
    That’s not too bad as an average temp over the winter. And the snow all at once thing sounds like what we get too.

  322. Mommy Grizzly says:

    We are in a mild part of the state. Up north it gets and stays around -30 and -40 for weeks at a time. Up there, it rarely hits 0 for any length of time. That’s why I live where I live now, instead of where I used to live. 🙂

  323. CJ says:

    Is that -40 C or F?

  324. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Oh you Mamas from Canadia. You are something. Something, alright. 😉

  325. CJ says:

    LOL. I promise I won’t let my kiddo’s tush freeze though.

  326. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, we’ve all had about enough of that bullshit. Seriously, that’s some stupidity that you just can’t unlearn. And that she has given that level of ignorance to 4 females with another child on the way, does not bode well for the successful healthy development of future generations of that family. I guess they make up for the lack of intelligence with the over abundance of procreation. Idk.

  327. CJ says:

    My money is on her being a fake, a troll. No one can honestly be that stupid and not realize it.

  328. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, I’m not gunna say that, but I do wonder why she is still there. I mean, she got some serious private face time with more than one mod, continued to ignore what they had to say and kept at it for a total of 4-5 threads. I’d ask Redhead what it takes to get banned but she isn’t sure so that won’t help!

    I agree with you though, I think she thinks WE are all big ass idiots that will just believe everything she has to say no matter how little sense she makes. It was funny though, did you read the prayer thread? Peachy called her out on speaking near jibberish.

  329. CJ says:

    LOL, no….I’m wishing that I had.
    DS crashed my computer over a year ago and I haven’t really been back since. I read the occasional cached page here and there but that is it. 😦

    I will continue to pray that peace will come over those struggling with loss and infertility. and that the formula feeding mamas that type about guilt and nasty comments from family can find a peace too that they are doing their best.

    it saddens me in the posts that the greatest nastinest comes from within their own families who should be their greatest allies.”

    I am not trying to be rude or anything but is english your first language? I ask because I am trying my hardest to make sense of your posts and I literally cannot understand the point you are trying to get across.

  331. Mommy Grizzly says:

    then another poster agreed with Peachy, and pointed out that there are a lot of French Canadians in that area. Then that same poster edits her post to say that the part that Peachy quoted was actually the best the OP had written of all of her posts. That it was the easiest to comprehend. OP has not replied to the thread.

    But, then she is due in Nov/Dec and she made an announcement in the Nov DDC that she was only going to post in the DDC and Prayer parts of the board.

  332. CJ says:

    Her UN is patooty?

  333. Mommy Grizzly says:

    the OP is patooty, yeah.

  334. CJ says:

    it just sounds pink cookie-ish

  335. Mommy Grizzly says:

    sounds to me like she’s embracing her jackass assness

  336. CJ says:

    I’m heading to bed. It is way too late here. g’night!

  337. Redhead says:

    Is there any (logical) reason that the yarn I just bought would arrive with large pieces of onion skins on it?

    I mean, do people store their yarn with onions for a specific reason, or is this just gross?

  338. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I cannot imagine why. Unless maybe they received onions and reused the package, but that’s just as weird.

  339. Redhead says:

    Nah, it was in a basic polymailer..

  340. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I really cannot imagine why. I use a LOT of onions and I don’t end up with peels in my yarn (or anywhere else besides the onion bin!). Especially, yarn I’m selling/mailing out!

  341. Nacho says:

    That is so gross, Redhead. LOL!

  342. DocsNemesis says:

    I’d be mad! I’m allergic to onions! And even if I weren’t…that can be some strong smelling stuff.

  343. CJ says:

    Ew Redhead! I would be beyond pissed! Did you email them to ask what the heck is up?

  344. DocsNemesis says:

    Anyone else think BO sometimes smells like onions? Maybe she was cuddling it in her armpits? I know I do that regularly.

    What????? 😛

  345. Redhead says:

    I have been gone all day, so no chance to email yet. I think I will write her tonight and ask what was up..
    Not only were there onions skins, but they also had lots of hair and junk.. 😦

  346. DocsNemesis says:

    Gross. 😦

  347. CJ says:

    I’m feeling queasy just thinking about opening that package.

    My money is on, “I got sick and asked DH to pack it up and mail it for me.”

  348. Redhead says:

    Yeah. I like the yarn though. I just need to roll a lint-remover all over it.

  349. smartassmama says:

    Not drama, but this girl needs to learn that periods and commas aren’t all so bad.

    I feel bad for some of the posters too. 😦

  350. smartassmama says:

    346 – There was this dude who used to come into Walmart all the time and he smelled like regular BO, onions, and Chili Cheese Fritos all rolled into one. He was rank.

  351. Sala says:

    351 – I couldn’t even read that post. My eyes just wouldn’t focus. They’re like, no, no, we do not wish to inflict that horrible post on you.

  352. iken says:

    Remember this mama? She had 4 trades go bad that required mediation, but she is still allowed to B/S/T. She was formerly known as momof3under3, now going by the name of mom2manypink. I wonder how long before she scams again….
    People get banned for swearing but not for scamming.

  353. DocsNemesis says:

    352-my stomach turned thinking about it. Ewwwwwww.

    354-yeah, thats just dumb. Bleh.

  354. Hexe says:

    I don’t know why, but something doesn’t feel I to me with this post. I looked at some other s of her posts and it seems like she has a store like selloing list. Weird.

    People grieve differently, I know that, but this is kind of weird, when you look at her iso and selling list

  355. Hexe says:

    Sorry, having problems with the site. Thats why the spelling is off.

  356. Redhead says:

    Watch out, H2BAM is on the War-path for those “cyber bullying” the idiots..

    Ladies, this is a quick reminder to everyone that this site does not allow bashing,cyber-bullying,cyber stalking of someones post etc. I recognize a few of the posters on this thread as being women who tend to run together when there is drama to be had or someone they wish to flame. It’s not allowed here.At all. In any way,shape or form.

  357. Sala says:

    People grieve differently, maybe she is trying to move past it because she feels her faith asks her to do so. I doubt she’s really happy at 5 weeks out but perhaps having happy moments now and again and trying to see the good in her life instead of dwelling.

    I dunno. I’m not going to judge her on how she grieves.

    I don’t understand why she’s looking to trade for diapers stuff and baby stuff if she has no kids at all right now. That is weird. But unless she’s using her dead kids to force inequitable trades or has (god forbid and I’m not saying she has) made up a dead-baby story to get people to feel sorry for her I don’t see the problem. She doesn’t seem like she’s using her traumas publicly.

    All I have to say is if it’s true, that poor woman. She must have an unshakeable faith because it’s all I could do to get out of bed after our prenatal loss. I cannot imagine burying an extant child. I’m damn strong but god, that’s got to be so hard. So so very hard.

  358. Hexe says:

    Sala, that is why I said people are grieving differently. I also hope that it is not a made up story. I just found it weird that she had been online looking fotr things and listing things just after her son passed. Her other posts seem so normal as if nothing had happened.

  359. smartassmama says:

    356 – who was it? it says i have no access?

  360. dundundun says:

    Meh… I can’t see it either.

  361. Sala says:

    It’s in the Loss/Grief/Support forum, I think it’s opt-in only. Since it’s opt in I will not C/P but the poster is Brainydrmom.

    But yeah, it’s odd, she doesn’t talk about the loss of her kid at all except in this post. In fact, of her 29 posts most were in July and she mentioned her son several times. Then there was a one month break (which would correspond to 5 weeks ago when she said she lost her son) and since then, not one mention of him?

    OTOH, I joined DS after the loss of my daughter and I did it because I needed something else to occupy my brain so I couldn’t dwell as much. I didn’t mention her much at all because it was too fresh and I just couldn’t do it when I was looking for something else to occupy my time than grieving.

  362. Hexe says:

    Sala, sorry for your loss. You are probably right and it is nothing, I don’t know, I just had a weird feeling reading her post abbout her loss.

  363. DocsNemesis says:

    So, I’m reading the Duggar thread and was thinking about a story I read on that no longer quivering blog. It was all about this woman who was AR and such…anyway, I remember her saying that the lady knew the Duggar’s and had met them several times, which makes me wonder. Are the Duggar’s all about AR?

    I also read a long time ago that the Duggar’s use the Pearl’s parenting methods which totally disturbs me, but I can’t remember where it was. Or if its true, of course. I hope it isn’t.

  364. JB says:

    241…just had to come out of lurkville to say I am also an Oblivion lover 😉 Its my guilty pleasure and I have yet to meet another gamer mom

  365. j says:

    @ 354 —
    I was actually going to do a trade with mom2manypink.
    I was looking for small dipes for a pregnant friend and she was “selling” a lot of small FBs. I don’t remember what I was going to trade her for them, something insignificant, but she even text messaged me pics of them.
    She told me at one point that she was heading to the PO that day and then like 2 days later told me her kid got sick and she couldn’t do the trade. I had told her earlier that day (supposed ship date) that I would only ship after receiving her items due to her neg fb. She was all, “Oh okay I understand!” I totally knew she was going to back out after that.
    Her whole story was actually that her daughter wasn’t gaining weight and so they had to take her to the Dr. How that meant she couldn’t ship something, I don’t understand. I figured at that point that she was going to attempt to scam me so I ignored her and contacted a mod. They did nothing of course.

  366. Iforget says:

    Hey mamas…

    Do you all remember a scammer called purplflame on LJ or HC? There is something going on over at Goodmama’s facebook page….

  367. Flat Stainley says:

    Redhead, did somebody SWEEP THEIR FLOOR with your wool!? That is yucky!

  368. Redhead says:

    Seriously- it looked like it.
    And the price I paid I could have bought it new from the HC store, I just didn’t know the dyer would be stocking this week. 😦

    Oh well, I went over it with a lint roller. It is better now.

  369. Flat Stainley says:

    Maybe their kids were playing with it before it got packed? I am glad you got it cleaned up.

  370. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Maybe Redhead needs to leave a neutral feedback cause I sure as hell would want to know if that is the type of product she was sending out. Especially if it was cat hair, because DD and I are SERIOUSLY allergic. And like Docs said, she’s allergic to onions.

  371. sourpatchbabe says:

    Dang, what happened to the sensitive subjects board? I barely go on it but went in today and saw an announcement that there are now only allowing approved topics on that board. Did it really get as raunchy as Chrinsteph1022 says?

  372. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Wow, overmoderate much?

  373. sourpatchbabe says:

    I don’t know, but if the threads she mentioned (I never saw them so I can’t really speak) were truly that raunchy then the board was turning into a sex thing and not just all sensitive subjects. I do wonder why circumcision questions has been moved there. If a pregnant woman has a question about that, shouldn’t she ask it in parenting?

  374. Snickerdoodle says:

    Im glad I stayed up late last night to finish reading the Open Marriage thread! I found it very interesting and had no idea they were going to delete it since it was 12 pages long. Oh and since the mod was fully and happily contributing. 🙂

  375. tat2mommy says:

    I was reading the “open marriage” thread as they were deleting it and I didn’t read anything bad…or delete worthy…so many stupid rules on that board.

    356: I don’t think she has updated her ISO/IHA lists…b/c her about me also still says full time mom and wife 😦

  376. Mommy Grizzly says:

    JB: Oblivion and Morrowind are my guilty pleasures. I :wub: them. DH used to play them when he was deployed and when he came home it rubbed off on me. I rarely play because you sort of get sucked in, but, I do like to play when I’m sitting in my shop, in between customers.

  377. DocsNemesis says:

    376-I dunno, it is a parenting subject, but its also a sensitive subject for some. But then again, almost anything could be a sensitive subject for some so I guess it really doesn’t make sense. I’m going in circles. Yeah, it should be in parenting imo. Its just like anything else, if you don’t want to read about it, you don’t have to click.

    I didn’t see the SS area being raunchy, but they seem to think anything is too far out there. Like saying hell. OHNOES. MUST HAVE HAPPY RAINBOWS AND SUNSHINE AT ALL TIMES!

  378. sourpatchbabe says:

    Dang, and I so wanted to post about my fantasy for bestiality (since you know, that must go against rainbows and lollipops). lol.

  379. smartassmama says:

    my moron question of the day: are mods/admin in any way compensated? i can’t imagine having to give that much, not get to be myself, and not get paid for it. Just curious.

    i feel bad for Steph now. i hope my curiosity for those topics and my interest & my posts haven’t gotten her in trouble there.

  380. sourpatchbabe says:

    I don’t think they’re compensated monetarily (maybe they get the super secret code that keeps viruses away?) since in all the other boards I’ve been in mods are volunteer positions.

  381. Flat Stainley says:

    OT, but I am MAD! I just got a custom trade in the mail today and the measurements I gave are not in my items! How many 18 month olds do you all know with newborn sized thighs?

  382. Mommy Grizzly says:

    WTF kinda chit is that, Flat??

  383. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Trades are not working out so well for ya, lately, ‘eh?

  384. Flat Stainley says:

    Stupig Fing chit! I need a grizzly hit mama! lol. I messaged her and she’s online, reading another thread. It is still marked as unread. Grrr!

  385. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Ya, too big I can help you fix, too small, not so much. Thats bullshit.

  386. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I’m on fb if you need me.

  387. Flat Stainley says:

    Thanks, MommyGrizzly. It is actually very cute bullshit!

  388. DocsNemesis says:

    😦 I can reknit if you want. Free, if you give me a couple of weeks to get it done. And its not LT. I feel bad for you!

    Did they have samples of other work?

  389. Mommy Grizzly says:

    If its super small measurements, the inseam will be short unless she has more colorway. They need to fix it or undo the trade. Its not right for her to keep getting screwed.

  390. Flat Stainley says:

    There were pics of the samples, and she asked me for measurements! Docs, that is really sweet of you! Let’s wait and see what she says. Maybe she will re-knit and I can sell these and send her the money I sell them for? It is pretty craptastic, considering the measurements are something to consider when doing a custom.

  391. Mommy Grizzly says:

    It is totally crap-tastic. Flat has horrible luck with trades, lately.

  392. Flat Stainley says:

    That’s for sure! I’m gonna go hide in the closet with my wool and when I come out, I’m climbing on the trade bandwagon.

  393. Mommy Grizzly says:

    How are your longies coming along? did you get them finished? I’ve got about 1 more inch of ball to finish my neck warmer. I’ve had a busy weekend.

  394. Flat Stainley says:

    We got into a study on them and discovered I am knitting from the back of the stitches. I might froggem and redo from the point that I started with you, Ma Grizz. That perfectionistic quality is getting it’s digs into my wool.

  395. DocsNemesis says:

    Gah, thats terrible. Yeah, I know they’d be short unless she sent you back the extra wool. If she didn’t I’d be even madder. How much yarn did you send?

    You shouldn’t have to pay anything, provided you gave the right measurements (not saying you didn’t, just saying!). It was her screw up, not yours, and she should make it right. Its not hard to measure and I don’t even know how you’d end up with newborn sized thighs unless the whole thing is off on measurements. Or she like…decreased in the legs or something?

    The worst I’ve done was had my hip measurement off by 2 inches, totally my fault (I still have no idea how I messed up my gauge that much), I offered to reknit as soon as I realized it but she ended up liking the extra room, hehe. Thank lord, it was LT. 😛

  396. Mommy Grizzly says:

    yeah, that’s no good. I’m going to email you.

  397. DocsNemesis says:

    Thank lord? I need some caffeine.

  398. Flat Stainley says:

    It was her yarn, Docs. A trade for some things I made. I checked my measurements to make sure she was getting what she asked for. Argh!

  399. DocsNemesis says:

    Ahhhh. I should just stay out of conversations. I’m too easily confused. 😛

  400. Flat Stainley says:

    Lol, no! It really helps me to see that I’m not just being irrational. Although I knew when I opened them that it would be a no-go.

  401. DocsNemesis says:

    Um yeah. You’re complaining because you bought a diaper used and the company wants you to send it back before replacing it? Most companies wouldn’t even go there, you buy used, you’re out of luck.

  402. sourpatchbabe says:

    How’s that different than buying a TV or computer or for that matter anything else in the real world? Last I checked, I couldn’t just walk out of a pawn shop with a busted TV and ask the company that made the TV to give me a refund on it..

  403. Redhead says:

    she and Xcomgirl would be good friends!

  404. smartassmama says:

    My thoughts exactly! They should take on the world of warranties and guarantees & free replacements, secondhand be damned!!

  405. sourpatchbabe says:

    Dang! Someone on my FB just posted asking if it was normal for a 10 month old to like fireballs. WHY THE HECK IS A 10 MONTH OLD EATING FIREBALLS IN THE FIRST PLACE? Can you say choking hazard?

  406. Mommy Grizzly says:

    PEACHY! Get on CDN, I PMed you.

  407. treeindawind says:

    Isn’t it Twat-waffle Tuesday? The calm before the storm?

  408. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Today is pizza Tuesday for me. And I have fluffy ordered. YIP YIP!

  409. dundundun says:

    I’m sitting on the couch watching 4 toddlers tear my dwelling apart.

    I could use some twatwaffle humor.

  410. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I have a toddler sleeping, a bigger toderkid watching Backyardigans on my iphone, a bigger boy not trying very hard to pretend to clean his room and a girl rolling yarn into a ball while listening to Harry Potter audiobook. I am sitting on my bed dreading packing for camping this weekend.

  411. dundundun says:

    Family camping trip?

    Before I became a mother I used to daydream about the wonderful family vacations we’d take and how it’d be the picture of perfection with fun in the sun or strolling around the zoo laughing together.

    Hell to the NO. After two beach vacations this summer I could care less if we go anywhere else until they are AT LEAST 5. I was exhausted like, 6 seconds after we got to our destination both times.

  412. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, something like that. DH is stationed about 320 miles away and we go up and see him sometimes when he cannot come home. I went to high school where he is stationed so I have a lot of friends there, and one of them invited him to go hunting. In order to go hunting, he needs me to bring his rifle up to him. If I’m going to drive more than 6 hours, I’m not going to turn around and come home, and since friend is having his wife and kids camp too — you get the idea.

    It is just AWESOME because I have to pack for 4 kids, pack for camping, go shopping for camping, drive 6.5 hours with 4 kids and 2 dogs and I get to do it, for the most part, on my own. Older kids help, some. I’ve done it several times but it’s getting old real fast. I cannot wait for him to retire, so I can retire.

  413. dundundun says:

    You should change your handle from “Mommy Grizzly” to “Supermom.”

  414. Mommy Grizzly says:

    LOL they kind of go together. I am super mom and when things don’t go right (read: my way) I will eat the heads of the people that stand in my way.

  415. It's A Snap says:

    Just wanted to say hi! It’s been awhile! Missed you whores!

  416. DocsNemesis says:

    *hugs* I think I’d go nuts trying to do that with my brood. And I can’t imagine having dh gone so much 😦 My best friends dh is in the Army and has been in Iraq since January (again…this is the 2nd time). They said he *might* get to come home in March of next year. I feel so bad for my friend and her dd, they both miss him so much. My friend said her dd cried for days before and after he left.

  417. DocsNemesis says:

    On a side note, my neighbor is a complete twat. Her son asked if I could watch him for 15 mins while she went to the store and I said not right now-I have 2 sick babies, both crying, and was already watching another kid at the same time. Her response was to say “well, I watched her kid last night so I’m leaving.” And she drove off. Left her kid here for over an hour. -_-

    Don’t get me wrong, I appreciated her watching ds, but I very clearly said she didn’t need to and I’d take him with me. Its not like I asked for a favor…or hadn’t watched her kid multiple times before. That and she’s ALWAYS out longer than she says. Last time I watched him, she said it’d be an hour and she was gone four. Grrr!

  418. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, I have to say even though he is still gone, him being in the same state is A TON easier/better/less stressful than when he has been deployed. I mean, A TON. That is the biggest reason for the issue I had on CDN a while back, it pisses me off when people minimize what the families of deployed service members go through. ESPECIALLY combat arms branches.

    I think my plans may have been derailed though, kiddo #3 has been stuffy and sicky for a couple days, but he just started complaining about his ear hurting so if it is an ear infection we are not leaving. I am giving him a while to see if it was just a ploy to not take a nappy or if it really hurts him.

  419. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, I hate it when neighbors ask me to watch their kids. I have asked my neighbors to watch the kids twice in the almost 2 years I’ve lived here. The first time, the neighbor wanted my baby and kept asking when I was going to leave them with her, the other time was when I was going to a dentist appt and they wouldn’t see me if I had my kids. They have a super small office and a separated waiting room so there was no place for the kids to be while I was being seen. Otherwise, I take them with me EVERY where I go.

  420. shabbychic says:

    OMG 418, get lost already.

  421. Snickerdoodle says:

    Yeah our neighbor wanted to carpool since her son is starting kindergarten this year and my dd goes to the same school. I said that would be fine except I didn’t have room in my car for him with my toddler as well. She said “oh I will watch her until you get back” I said ” oh she has never been left with anyone but me or dh.” *crickets* She said ” not even for thirty minutes?” I said ” nope” *more crickets*

    We just don’t have any family down here and the only friends I have that I would feel comfortable leaving her with are friends I would want to be going out with if I was going out at all! LOL. So yeah…

    Sorry what you have to go through Mommygrizzly aka Supermom Wow getting ready for camping with 2 kids and a dh who is here (not helping much but here) is a nightmare! I can’t IMAGINE having to do it with twice the amount of kids AND no dh! I hope kiddo # 3 turns out to be ok! 🙂

  422. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Snap, your monster was appropriately assigned. A big ol’ pile of shit complete with legs and eyes.

  423. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Thanks, Cookie. I just do what needs to be done and I’ll keep you all posted on him. #4 just woke up all snotty so it’s not looking good. Not even this “supermom” is willing to go camping with 2 sick kiddos.

  424. Mommy Grizzly says:

    You all get the JAR on butterflyeggdesigns? the first one that came out was interesting but then there was a second that fits for Tuesday. FLAT: I have VEGGIE PIZZA with TOMATERS!

  425. Flat Stainley says:

    Ooh! I iz hungry! I just got off work and I am famished!

  426. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Don’t I just know how to beckon a woman?

  427. Flat Stainley says:

    Haha! Yes! Show me the tomatos!

  428. dundundun says:

    I didn’t get the entertainment I expected on this Tuesday. Sad dundundun is sad.

  429. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Well, Snap popped in, it was pretty anti-climactic though.

  430. dundundun says:

    My n00bism isn’t familiar with her story. Dangit.

  431. DSDM2 says:

    With Snap’s?

    She is a scammer, steals from WAHMs, makes new HC stores that get banned, ropes other WAHMs into making new HCs with her (then blocks them out), she comes here to insult people when she is off her meds, comes to all the boards with new UNs after being banned (over and over), pretty much she is crazy and can’t hide it long.

    If you want details, you will have to search for her. There is too much to give.

  432. dundundun says:

    Thanks, I’ll do that. I’m livin’ it up online wasting time surfing and watching Tosh.0 so I have the spare time.

  433. Flat Stainley says:

    Tosh.0 is hilarious!

  434. Mommy Grizzly says:

    do you have access to CDN?
    there is like a 35 page ‘hot seat’ thread on her. That’s 35 pages wth 40 posts per page.

  435. dundundun says:

    Flat.. the other half and I are going to see him in October. So excited!!

    I’ll check out CDN. I just don’t understand how one momma could scan another. You’d think we’d all be here for the greater good. I couldn’t sleep at night knowing I stole money.

  436. dundundun says:

    scam, too.

  437. Redhead says:

    The Snap drama was too much for me.. I got all confused with the name changes and new HCs. I applaud those who had the patience to read through all that and come out unfrazzled!

  438. Flat Stainley says:

    dundundun, that’s awesome! DH and I saw Mister Leahy and Randers live once. Too funny!

  439. dundundun says:

    I just locked myself out of CDN for 15mins ’cause I couldn’t remember my password. Oops. I just had the reminder sent so maybe in a lil bit I can snoop.

    Flat, this will be my first live standup show so I’m really, really excited. We’re going to have a sitter for the evening and stay in a hotel (it’s two cities away) and have a night to ourselves for comedy, food, fun, drinks, and sleep. Heck to the YES.

  440. Mommy Grizzly says:

    if you cannot get in, let me know and I’ll pm a mod for you

  441. smartassmama says:

    I’ve never seen Tosh.0. Comedy Central?

    I’m watching Teen Mom & about to get my scrumdidlyuptious Tequila Lime chicken wangs out of the microwave.

    I have been to a couple stand-up acts. One was a small bar setting and funny, though I don’t remember the name. 😦 And the other was Rodney Carrington in a huge arena, and HILARIOUS! But y’all know I’m a country bumpkin, so I love that stuff.

  442. Flat Stainley says:

    442- lucky! I’m coming!

  443. Flat Stainley says:

    444- yes, I’ts comedy central, I think.
    Kinda man-ishly funny, but some of it is really good!

  444. dundundun says:

    If you’re easily offended Tosh definitely isn’t what you’d want to watch. I can find the humor in anything even if I don’t necessarily agree with it.

    I got into CDN but thanks for the offer, Grizzly one 😉

  445. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I’m very easily offended. Swearing will make you go to hell. HELL, I SAY!

  446. dundundun says:

    Go ahead and watch it. You can share my cot. It’s pretty cozy other than the fact that it’s directly beside a blazing ball of satanic fury. Bring sunblock, yo.

  447. Mommy Grizzly says:

    LOL! Dun, you need to be my friend on CDN, bet you can’t figure out which is me… :)!

  448. Just Peachy says:

    I love Tosh! Deep Vs bitches!!!!!!!!

  449. CJ says:

    Hi everyone! DS2 spilled his drink on my laptop a few days ago and it is finally dried out!
    Back in time for twatwaffle tuesday. Nothing?

  450. Mommy Grizzly says:

    fire that kid! messes are not allowed!

  451. CJ says:

    thankfully it was only water. The poor thing was crying b/c his blankie got wet too. I wasn’t very sympathetic.

  452. Mommy Grizzly says:

    LOL I’d say not! How old is the water boy?

  453. CJ says:

    2 days shy of 3

  454. Mommy Grizzly says:

    My 3 and 4 month old decided, while he was watching a movie on my itouch, that his hands were sticky. So he went to wash his hands. And then it dawned on him that my itouch was sticky. So he washed it. I freaked out and left it on my husbands nightstand to dry out. 2 days later, our 20 month old decided the same itouch needed a little refreshment to wet it’s lips so he put it in the cup of apple cider my husband had left on his night stand.

    I yelled, they cried, I cried. Yeah, good times.

  455. CJ says:

    LOL. This would have been computer 5 in 4 years so thankfully it seems to be back to normal.

  456. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, I’m really glad. It’s been quiet around here without you.

  457. CJ says:


  458. Mommy Grizzly says:

    that. exactly.

  459. CJ says:

    I was just looking through the ISO listings on CDN and there is an ISO for doll skin scraps!. That just sounds weird.

  460. Mommy Grizzly says:

    no kidding. I wonder if that is anything like the onion skins Redhead just got in the mail.

  461. CJ says:

    ooooh! an all-natural onion doll. A new use for compost material.

  462. Mommy Grizzly says:


  463. CJ says:

    My idea. none of y’all steal it. I’m going to be rich! I just bought some needles and thread from the dollar store and I have a bucket of kitchen scraps. WAHM hall of fame, here I come!

  464. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Careful, Snap has been visiting again today, you might have her undercutting you as soon as you debut.

  465. CJ says:

    I saw that! Kids are back at school, Teresa is bored again?

  466. Mommy Grizzly says:

    She missed both the commas and whores that elude her.

  467. CJ says:


    I don’t think that I’ve ever been called a whore before. (to my face at least) I feel dirty.

  468. Mommy Grizzly says:

    It doesn’t bother me when it comes from someone that insecure, lonely, ignorant, deceitful and obviously unhappy.

    It’s almost a recognition of how awesome we are!

  469. CJ says:

    It makes me sad to think of how dull her life must be.

  470. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, it doesn’t make me sad, because she really COULD make her life different if she just decided to. It does remind me to be thankful of how great my life is, though.

  471. CJ says:

    I have to head to bed Grizz. I am fighting off a head cold and need to get some sleep. Goodnight!

  472. Mommy Grizzly says:

    night night!

  473. Flat Stainley says:

    I can’t sleep tonight! Oh, propolis, where are you? I need some melatonin fer ma brayun!

    I’ve been called ‘sir’ plenty of times, but never a whore. I have to say it hurts. Now I need to go put my YAGE panties on. :sniffles: How dare she? Isn’t that like a nasty snatch calling the cheese ‘twat’? Go roll in a dead fish! When you’re done that, you can find some bacon grease and freshen up a little. Use lots! :snickers maniacally:

  474. Redhead says:

    LOL Flat!!!

  475. dundundun says:

    I had the same problem last night, Flat. 30 minutes after laying there my muscles and joints tensed up. It was ridiculous. I’m counting down the MINUTES until nap time.

    Mommy, I gotta play with CDN. I don’t have a single post on there. I say I’m going to play around with it every time I mention it but I never do because I haz teh layzee.

  476. CJ says:

    Seven hours of sleep and I’m kind of refreshed now. Coffee is definitely helping. Lots of delicious espresso.
    Mornin’ ladies!

  477. Flat Stainley says:

    Good morning! I can’t drink coffee. I have a weakness for iced caps, but they hurt my tummy too. A smoothie will help, though! 😀

    I hate sleeplessness. It is almost as annoying as scammers.

  478. CJ says:

    I shouldn’t drink coffee….it is killer on my tummy too but I love it too much to give it up.

  479. Flat Stainley says:

    That’s what I said all summer. No I have to deal with complications. Not so fun. I so shouldn’t drink it at all! It’s kinda like a diaper addiction; if you stop buying it, you don’t know what you’re missing?

  480. Flat Stainley says:


  481. Mommy Grizzly says:

    If you guys are having issues with coffee, I can almost bet that it is because you are getting Starbucks. The blend they use is very acidic and is notorious for causing tummy issues. You need to find a blend that is smoother, we have a local blend that is the SHIT but doesn’t CAUSE any.

  482. moxy says:

    re the third and latest JAR message: Yup the seller is shady and shouldn’t be in business, but YOU are an obnoxious twat regardless.

  483. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Did you read the last line of that JAR??

    “She Sooooooooo reminds me of “snap”. “

  484. moxy says:

    Yup, read it all, rolling my eyes all along.
    Nice concise, factual reporting.

  485. DSDM2 says:

    I was actually thinking that it sounded like Snap too.

    While 3 JARs in 2 days by one person is overkill, the seller is scamming. Look at the feedback. I would be pissed off too if someone stole that much money from me.

  486. Mommy Grizzly says:

    True that. $63 is a big chunk of PP to get a hassle and no fluffy.

  487. Flat Stainley says:

    Yeah. That just reeks of dead fish and bacon grease.

  488. Mommy Grizzly says:

    And Flat would know!

  489. Flat Stainley says:


  490. CJ says:

    I use a local coffee, not starbucks. I think it’s actually the milk that kills me. I should switch to soy but it’s not as yummy.

    I read the JARs but didn’t check out the store yet. I will have to do that now.

  491. Kimbella says:

    Would anyone else be upset be upset by a seller on DS taking 9 days to ship?

  492. DocsNemesis says:

    I’d be highly annoyed, unless they warned me. Or at least kept me updated. But I’d still be annoyed.

  493. Kimbella says:

    Nope, no warning. I emailed on day 7 (I think) and got no reply. I emailed again on the 9th day, and the seller replied saying that she had to buy envelopes.

    She told me today that she doesn’t think receiving an item 11 days after paying for it is an “exhorbitant amount of time”.

  494. CJ says:

    I’m probably less prone to be annoyed than others when it comes to shipping delays. Ordering from the US puts my items at 2 weeks out no matter what so I am not used to having my fluff within the week. I have had people email to say that they forgot to ship and it generally isn’t a big deal.
    If I was expecting the item in 3 days though, I may feel differently about it. Life happens I guess. Hopefully they will make up for the mistake by sending something extra.

  495. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I’d be quite irritated.

  496. Mommy Grizzly says:

    How far away is she from you, Kimbella?

  497. CJ says:

    496….In that case, yes I would be annoyed. It obviously was not a mistake. She just doesn’t care.
    Did you pay via paypal? She is required to ship within 7 days of payment.

  498. Kimbella says:

    Nothing extra, unless you count the undisclosed hole in one of the pairs of shorties.

    I totally get that life happens, and wouldn’t have been bothered at all by a long ship time, IF she would have at least kept me updated or even replied to my first PM – she was on DS and bumping her fsot threads but didn’t bother to reply to me.

  499. Kimbella says:

    She’s over half of the US away. She shipped on the 30th, and the package got here today.

    I did pay via PP, but I don’t really know what they would do since I did get the package.

  500. CJ says:

    Yeah, the “item not as described” is for ebay only I think. I would demand a refund due to the hole in the shorts.

  501. Mommy Grizzly says:

    and tell her that you do not want to wait 11 days for a refund since she seems to like to take her time.

  502. Kimbella says:

    She offered to reimburse me for the holey pair of shorties, and I agreed to that, so hopefully I get it!

  503. Kimbella says:

    lol MG!

  504. CJ says:

    I hope that she comes through on that.

  505. Kimbella says:

    Me too!

    Now, assuming she does refund for the holey pair, what kind of FB should I leave?????

  506. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Communication lacked, shipped slow but overall satisfactory transaction or something similar?

  507. Kimbella says:

    I meant Pos vs Neutral? I like that wording though!

  508. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I’d leave it positive if she does satisfy you. I would leave neutral if she keeps leaving you hanging or takes forever to refund

  509. Mommy Grizzly says:

    You just like my wording cause US square folk with weirdly shaped limbs and stuff sticking out of our squareness’ think alike…!!

  510. Kimbella says:

    Sounds like a good idea!

    At least your square monster looks happy! Mine looks like it’s dead!

  511. CJ says:

    I’m torn on whether I would leave a very detailed positive or a neutral. I know that people should read all feedback, but they don’t. A negative or neutral is usually the only thing that will make people look further.

  512. Kimbella says:

    But, neutrals don’t change the FB rating either. Most people only look at the % under the avatar and never actually read the detailed FB.

    She did send the refund already, so yay! 🙂

  513. CJ says:

    Don’t they show up on the little chart though which shows number of negatives, positives, etc in the past 6 months, year, etc?

    Yay for the refund!

  514. Sala says:

    I’d be very annoyed at the delay in shipping but I am understanding if communication is good. Last month I was waiting for a seller to get something to ship to me. She said if it didn’t arrive by such and such a date, she’d refund me that part and send the rest of my purchase. Date came, date went, no refund; two-three days later I get the refund. I waited to hear the rest of my stuff had shipped, nothing.

    But after I pmed her and asked her if she’d sent it, she immediately responded. She said she’d refund part of the purchase because she’d totally forgotten (and was embarrassed to have forgotten) AND she’d send it priority. And she did. I had the refund within the day and she’d purchased shipping that day, too. So while there was a considerable delay in shipping, seller was communicative when gently poked AND made good on the delay. Reminds me, I should go leave FB.

  515. Snickerdoodle says:

    Looks like this blog just got mentioned at DS. (at least I *think* its this blog) Is that much of a big deal? I just found this blog recently so I don’t know the deal there. 🙂

    *And yes it was a personal goal of mine to use “deal”and “blog” at least once in every sentence. 😀 *

  516. Snickerdoodle says:

    Oh Gingersnap! (that is how us cookies swear)

    Forgot the link

    Post #16

  517. CJ says:

    goodbye jsmith

  518. dundundun says:

    LMAO @ oh gingersnap!

    I’m sitting here trying to figure out another cookie swear word but I fail 😦

  519. CJ says:


    (That is the biscuit that Lumpy the hephalump likes to eat.)

  520. Snickerdoodle says:

    LOL @ Rumpledoodle!

    Makes me think of Rumparooz and that Biscotti who was trying to get her used diaper replaced with a new one.

    Ok ok I don’t think she was really a Biscotti, just misunderstood. 😀

    All right that might have been one too many cookie jokes, even for me. Night night all. 🙂

  521. Redhead says:

    who has Marr Haven in their stash to sell me? I missed the one on Green Strings today and my life will never be the same until I fill the marr-haven shaped void in my life!

    SAVE ME and sell me YOUR FANCY WOOL!! 😉

  522. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I am such a weirdo. I REALLY wanted more corn on the cob so I traded my corn on the cob loving son for ice cream. I’m lucky that he likes ice cream more than corn on the cob!

  523. Mommy Grizzly says:

    you can buy it directly from them, you know…?

  524. Redhead says:

    Not dyed beautiful colors…

  525. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Yeah, she has several different colors of hand dyed yarn…IDK what the one you were looking at looked like but it would be worth going to look at her site to see…?

  526. Redhead says:

    I loved the GS Rainbow.. nothing on the Marr Haven site compares.
    GS won’t be dyeing for at least 6 more months. I hate waiting.

    I think I might go binge on Krispy Kreme now, to lessen my pain.. 😉

  527. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Will you bring me back a bavarian cream? That will definitely make you feel better.

  528. mom2js says:

    Redhead I’m with you, I really wanted to try Marr haven, I went after some at the yarnnoodles stalking and missed it 😦 boo

  529. mom2js says:

    Hmm, weird I tried to post this missing packages?

  530. CJ says:

    Just finished batch one of chocolate cupcakes for the munchkin’s birthday tomorrow. I will have to taste test to make sure the recipe is up to par before making more in the morning. 🙂

  531. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Cj – Gotta make sure noone snuck any poison in, right? I need one. Second opinion and all…

  532. CJ says:

    K. I will send one with the sled dog team.

  533. DocsNemesis says:

    No fair, Krispy Kream is 20+ minutes away from me. In Seattle. I hate Seattle. Why must they have the good donuts?! -_-

  534. Mommy Grizzly says:

    My nearest Krispy Kream is in Seattle, too, but for me it’s a lot more than 20 min away.

  535. DocsNemesis says:

    PS I wuuuub me some Marr Haven. The light grey dyes up really nice, I’m hoping to get a decent brown dye and have yet another brown yarn to make into longies. But, I fail at brown. It always turns out ugly 😦

  536. DocsNemesis says:

    Rofl, yeah, thats a lot more than 20 mins away. 😛

  537. DocsNemesis says:

    In the south, they have Krispy Kream in grocery stores. Not all the yummy flavors, but still. I was like “O.M.G.!”

    I’m going to gain 50 pounds the moment we move to South Carolina, I swear.

  538. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I lived in SC and couldn’t leave the state FAST enough. ugh.

  539. CJ says:

    I think that our closest one is Seattle too. My passports aren’t in yet though so I will have to stick with Tim Horton’s.

    Actually, I have noticed KK here in grocery stores and gas station convenience stores. Just the plain ones, by the box.

  540. Flat Stainley says:



    Redhead needs double Rainbows across her sky!
    Why, why can’t she find it?
    Marr Haven double rainbows for her to knit, she needs them right now. Crispy creme will keep her happy just for tonight-please, somebody sell theirs!
    What does this mean?
    SO intense.
    It’s starting to look like she might need a custom!

    Sorry, that’s the best I can do, Redhead. 😦

  541. DocsNemesis says:

    I wub SC. I can’t wait to move there. But I’ve lived in Seattle my whole life and I HATE the cold, hate the rain, bleh. And every one of my RL friends is in SC or GA. Even my best friend is from GA (though she’s in Wisconsin at the moment…military…). That and my fiance is miserable here, he misses SC and his family. I miss the weather. Oh the weather. *sigh*

  542. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Which part, Docs? :wub: your singy song, Flat!

  543. Flat Stainley says:

    Why, thankyou! Every time I see a rainbow, I think of Redhead. ;D

  544. DocsNemesis says:

    Flat, you should totally record that. And then put a video on youtube. 😀

    MommyG-Greenville area. He’s from Piedmont, about 15 minutes from Greenville. I spent half my visit in Charleston though. I don’t think I could live there though, the humidity there was killer. The ocean was wonderful though, so warm! No hypothermia!

  545. CJ says:

    You get hypothermia in Seattle? lol

  546. Flat Stainley says:

    Lol, no! But if I ever did, I’d wear my orange blaze hat just for effects. 😉

  547. DocsNemesis says:

    At the beach? If you stay in the water too long…haha. I have fond memories of blue lips and toes after swimming when I was a kid.

  548. Mommy Grizzly says:

    With a diaper frozen on your rear, right, FLAT!??

  549. CJ says:

    I would love to go to the southern US some day. I think I was meant to live there.

  550. Flat Stainley says:

    Yes, but I might be in grave dangwer-My rear is always frozen, always.

  551. dundundun says:

    I have a Krisy Kreme about three miles from me. The gas station 2 blocks away has them delivered fresh in the morn.

    Na Na Na, Boo Boo!

  552. Snickerdoodle says:

    553- The Southern Us Ain’t all its cracked up to be. 🙂

  553. dundundun says:

    556, I agree.

    I’m in NC and it’s hotter than Satan’s asshole here.

  554. Snickerdoodle says:

    557 Ugh I KNOW the heat and humidity is KILLING us down here. I read these posts about freezing and I just fantasize about the cold…

    Anyway, I need y’alls sleuthing skills.

    I could help this poster, I do have stuff she could use but she just joined DS and only has 10 posts. Some of which are her thread asking for help.

    What do you ladies think?

  555. dundundun says:

    I wouldn’t. It looks like her first posts were from 8/30. I’m a skeptic though, so I don’t trust someone who joins a diaper forum where a lot of B/S/T happens and then immediately starts asking for freebies within her first few days. Too much of a coincidence in my eyes. It’s almost like she posted in a few threads to establish herself a tiny bit and then started asking for free stuff.

    Plus, she started two need topics in two separate forums.

  556. Snickerdoodle says:

    Yeah I just saw that.

    It’s such a bummer because I love to help people and I always believe the best about people. It’s only recently since I became more involved in DS that I am seeing that there are so many dishonest scammers that take advantage of people like me. 😦

    And then my mind is logically like well if all my diapers were stolen, of course I would come to a place like Diaperswappers to see what I could find at FSOT and stuff. BUT I think you are right, its kind of suspicious that she just joined 3 days? before her diapers were supposedly stolen.

  557. DSDM2 says:

    In another thread she talks about her diapers, she is using knickernappies which are $20 each. I doubt things are too bad or it would have been PFs.

  558. Snickerdoodle says:

    561- Good point! *I* don’t have any Knickernappies damn it! 🙂 We do flats and PFs with covers here because we gotta CD on the cheap!

    I like how in one of her posts she said they “prefer pockets but beggars can’t be choosers”. 😀

  559. smartassmama says:

    The link is broken now. Goes to that “invalid” DS page.

    I’m in the south. It sucks balls. It’s currently 87F, and that feels breezy. That’s how warped I am from the 100F temps we had a few weeks ago.

    Docs, you can swim in Seattle. And if you get too cold, Patrick Dempsey will dive in and save you. Sounds better than a bath-temp swimming pool to me!

  560. smartassmama says:

    I have KNDs. I’m really torn on what to do with them too. DD is PTd/PLd except for nighttime and long trips. DS cannot take naps in them, because they leak immediately on him. Could be because he’s a chunk. So I don’t know if I should keep them for future babies, or sell them. I do like them.

  561. DSDM2 says:

    She has ANOTHER thread in ISO. Something about desperate need.

  562. Snickerdoodle says:

    565 & 566 Persistent little bugger isn’t she?

    She says she is looking for awesome deals not freebies and I understand that but how many mamas who obviously want to help would charge someone who got all their diapers stolen? I know I wouldn’t because I wouldn’t feel right about it. Or only charge for shipping which is FFS.

    Interesting loophole there. I will be interested to see what happens to her new thread in diaper chatter.

  563. DocsNemesis says:

    If it were pockets, I’d say *maybe* she was broke and got them for free. Or anything else Franklin Goose carries. Because my butt is broke and thats how I got mine. But they don’t carry those and although I’m sure there’s random awesome deals out there she could’ve come across…it just doesn’t seem likely. And yeah, she’s barely been on the site and is already asking for handouts? Gah.

  564. Mommy Grizzly says:

    It really seems like a popular thing to have your diapers stolen off a clothes line. Maybe some people need to get a dog. Nobody enters my yard without my dog letting me know. If she went off and I saw someone messing with my clothes line, I’d be sending her outside for a snack!

  565. Flat Stainley says:

    Yeah, I didn’t line dry at all this summer because I had a shady DS lady come to my house for a trade, and I’ve posted clothes line pics on DS in the past. Not worth the risk, IMO, even though it’s probably not too likely to happen.

    If I was a mod, I’d be running that chick’s IP to see if she is already an existing member.

  566. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Man, I have the most ironic luck. My diapers just got stolen from my back yard. I, of course, cannot afford to buy more so please send donations to Mommy Grizzly, 3rd tree to the left the Main street T, Not as cold as Manitoba Canada, Alaska.

    My kid has a lot of allergies, nothing cheap or inexpensive can touch his tush. So, considering that, please only send LN GM and BG Organics. I mean, it’s only fit that you cloth diaper my son better than you might your own. Obviously.

  567. Freckleface says:

    Nacho – who is it? The made with love in china thing sounds very familiar but I can’t think of who it is…

  568. DocsNemesis says:

    I line dry in an apartment. No one has ever messed with my stuff. I think the people who know what they are think *ewwwww* so yeah. I also keep them right outside the big sliding glass door windows though. If someone did try, I’d see them.

  569. Snickerdoodle says:

    LOL @571! Sorry man that IS terrible luck. 😀

    I have my clothes line set up on our deck and we have a privacy fence and no houses behind our privacy fence since its a flood plain.

    But that is really sad that some people are getting their diapers stolen. (if they really are) And weird. Like how many people cloth diaper enough to want to steal them? I understand if a shady DS lady came to your house like with Flat but… Anyway.

    572- do you know the brand she is talking about? I haven’t a clue.

  570. DocsNemesis says:

    574-I don’t either. I checked both of my pocket brands and there’s no “made with ❤ in China" thing. I have Fuzzi Bunz (say made in China but thats it) and BG's (which say made in the USA…which I don't get, I thought they were China made??).

  571. Mommy Grizzly says:

    someone asked if they had the same initials as FaceBook and someone else said no, the sound a lion makes. That would be RaR?

  572. DocsNemesis says:

    Ah, well that would explain why I didn’t have any clue. I’ve never owned any.

  573. Nacho says:

    I’m guessing there will be legal action over this one. It reminds me of the charlie banana and fuzzibunz drama that just ensued a few weeks ago.

  574. Mommy Grizzly says:

    What I cannot understand from what I read is this:

    Woman owns a cloth diaper store/makes her own cloth diapers (I didnt read enough to know which)

    Said woman uses NOT her own diapers but some expensive ones from China

    Said woman takes apart China diaper

    Said woman admits to taking apart her own diapers

    Said woman complains that there is an issue with China diapers and it cannot be that her son shits out metal shards.

    If she MAKES such a great product, WTF is she spending her money on China diapers?

  575. Flat Stainley says:

    Oooh, Mommy Grizzly, you’re good! Are those made in China? Glad I don’t own any. I wonder if it’s cheap needles or pins that had the outer metal flake off?

  576. Snickerdoodle says:

    I thought of RaR but dismissed it because I didn’t realize they were made in China. And here I was thinking it was some cheap Ebay diaper!

    And yeah I have never owned any either.

    I never knew there was so much drama in the world of Cloth diapers! Neither did my dh who is very very very tired of hearing me talk about diapers. 😀

  577. Flat Stainley says:

    IDK, I make my own dipes, but it is still fun to use the other stuff too. I also take apart other dipes, esp. if it is a print that I totally love and can’t find anywhere else, but really want the fabric for something special. Some people are true fluff addicts.

  578. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Rump•a•rooz® and accessories are made in several factories located in Denver Colorado, Chicago Illinois, Denmark and China. We have several factories to meet the supply and demand for all our customers and retail stores.

  579. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Flat, I’m not saying the woman CAN’T use other peoples diapers, I’m just saying that it seems REALLY odd that she makes HER BUSINESS out of MAKING diapers, not just making her own.

    You know about my business, I don’t go down the street and get someone else’s product, I go to my own shop and get my own. How can I expect my customers to be loyal to me if I’m not? If it’s that her diapers don’t fit her kid well enough maybe she needs to adjust her pattern.

  580. smartassmama says:

    I don’t know what it said, because it says it isn’t available anymore?

    But the “Made with ♥ in China” thing rang a bell. Definitely RaRs. I had two, and thought it was very interesting that it said that. Those diapers were crappy. One de-laminated and they wanted me to do way more than I cared to do to have it replaced. They weren’t rude, but it was seriously more hoops than I cared for with a small baby, a toddler, and stress. So I just quit using both and sold the one that was usable. Short rise for a OS anyway.

  581. smartassmama says:

    Happened to me! I came here to mention it and got sidetracked trying to read the FB link. lol

  582. smartassmama says:

    Now the place won’t load or accept my reply.

  583. Sala says:


    It will be interesting how that shakes out – the lure of more ad income vs. biting the hands that feed you.

  584. MotherMoonPads says:

    #580. I’ve never understood why WAHMs don’t use their own brands of CDs. There was one in my DDC that I just had to laugh and shake my head at every time I see her posts. She always posted that it’s not worthwhile to CD a newborn, yet she SELLS newborn CDs as a WAHM. Oh the irony there.

  585. Mommy Grizzly says:

    That’s some seriously ironic funniness there…. I am my own best customer, because if I cannot make myself happy, I cannot expect to make any of my customers happy. I don’t even sell diapers, I sell a food product!

  586. Mommy Grizzly says:

    Not only that, but when you make a product, all you are paying for is the required materials. Why on earth would you pay the material, overhead and employee time costs to make something you are already making? It just doesn’t make financial cents! It’s actually evidence that she thinks very little of her own product.

  587. smartassmama says:

    Maybe she makes fitteds but wanted pockets? I’m clueless, never read it.
    I know a WAHM who makes great, adorable diapers. But I’ve seen pictures of her DS in a disposable. Same thing I guess.

  588. Mommy Grizzly says:

    No, the person complaining makes pockets and is complaining about another type of pockets. The complainer is Cutiepoops…

    She deleted the thread herself but she was complaining about RaR which is another type of pockets of the OS variety.

  589. JustMe says:


    I totally confess, I am a diaper making WAHM who bought sposies for her soon-to-be newborn…

    However, I’m expecting a larger baby who will fit in the smalls I’m making right away.

  590. iken says:

    I got the Thomas the Train ad on my Ipod touch, but not on my laptop (Firefox with adblocker.)

    RaR’s takes another hit, this time from a long-standing member.

    “Wow, I’m disappointed…any advice? Rumparooz wicking through back tag.
    During the RAR sale I purchased 6 of the first quality RAR. 5 of the 6 have the back tag reinforced. My green one does not. Both times she’s worn it, it’s wicked out the back tag stitching and it’s the ONLY one that does that.

    I called Kanga-care and was told to:
    1. Bump up the absorbency-sorry, but I can’t stuff more than 2 inserts in there-she already look like she’s wearing a mattress between her legs
    2.Put the “fold over” part in back-already doing that
    3.Change more often. These are our “car trip” diaper- I need it to work for at least 2 hours. I don’t think that’s too much to ask.

    They won’t replace or exchange it because she’s used it because it’s not considered a defect.

    So any ideas? Any way to seal it back there? “

  591. MotherMoonPads says:

    Dude. 596, I told you to buy them silly lady!

  592. Kirsty says:

    Gonzo. That sucks- I’d like to have read that.

  593. JustMe says:

    598…Exactly! Just thought it was too ironic, considering your post. lol.

  594. JustMe says:

    Woah, did my monster change? I’m pretty sure that’s not the one I had before. Is it doing yoga while sitting on a spring, or pooping like a fish? 😛

  595. CJ says:

    oooooh, is it new monster day?

  596. CJ says:

    nope, I still have a waving penis tree.

  597. JustMe says:

    I probably just didn’t pay enough attention to my monster, since I don’t post much.

  598. sourpatchbabe says:

    How do fish poop? Methinks you have a wee bit too much time in your hand to be staring at constipated fish. I think you should come to my house and do my laundry. I’ll take you to all the sights if you do.

  599. MotherMoonPads says:

    My dear 600, you aren’t trashing on newborn diapers publicly (or privately-for the record 😉 )while trying to sell them though. such is the difference 🙂

  600. JustMe says:

    605 – we’ve had fish all my life. (Actually, none now). Some of them tend to swim around with strings of poop hanging out of them (just like my monster). You must never have had fish. 😛

    606 – Got it. 😉

  601. dundundun says:

    It’s even more gross when the other fish come up and eat it off their butt 😦

  602. Snickerdoodle says:

    599- that post was going strong and perfectly intact until a thread complaining about franklin goose not answering any emails had a mod step in and tell them bashing companies wasn’t allowed. So then a poster got on there and said WE are not bashing but check out that RaR thread that is.

    And then the thread went poof. And the mod got back on the Franklin Goose post to say they got it and thanks.

    I bet she was a tattle tale in school too.

  603. Snickerdoodle says:

    O-T but why does DS ban so many people? I don’t know how many times I will do a search and be reading along and like four or five people in that thread are currently banned.

    It almost makes me nervous to post. Sometimes it will say they are banned because of neg feedback but a lot of times they will have an amazing feedback score and their posts all seem nice and helpful, nothing to be banned for.

  604. mommato2 says:

    Hi Ladies! I just found this blog and it made my day! Finally a place that I can talk like an adult w/other mammas that talk like adults too!

  605. Toaster says:

    It has been a while since I have had a little one, but as far as I can recall I was changing my newborns way more often than 2-3 hours when I did pf’s and covers. If the cover smelled like pee, I’d put a new one on. I just want to yell “Change them more often!”

  606. Redhead says:

    610- you get banned whenever admin wants to ban you.
    They don’t even have to inform you of why!
    Usually that involves:

    1) disagreeing with trolls
    2) calling out trolls
    3) calling out scammers
    4) disagreeing with mods
    5) being level-headed and making sense
    6) being more active and having your U/N outed here

    Scammers get second, third and fourth chances before they are banned…

  607. Snickerdoodle says:

    611- I know I had that thought too but I didn’t want to say anything. Her older one smells too so…

    612- LOL thanks so much! That really clears it up for me! 🙂 I especially need to watch out for #5 and #6 I think.

    Kind of amazing they don’t need to inform you of why.

  608. Redhead says:

    I think most people get a notification and reason as to why they are getting banned. I didn’t when they banned me, but that was probably because I am just too darn awesome and they couldn’t admit that to me. 😉

    611, I always changed my LOs as soon as they messed their diaper. I can’t imagine waiting or putting diaper changes on a schedule.
    We always fed on demand as well, the scheduling just seemed to be more stressful for me.. but I know it works for others.

  609. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I did the same thing, Redhead. I mean, there were times that my littlest would poop every 20 minutes. Could you imagine making him wait until his next scheduled changing time? And feeding, the kid is hungry so you fill their bellies. Pretty simple. I’d even ‘top them off’ before going into a store because it just made everyone a lot happier.

  610. Amygamie says:

    612 I agree, I had a few oopsies when it came to language and I didn’t bother to go back and edit them but once I started posting here I got a strike and warning in less than two months time for the littlest things. I am fed up with DS they coddle and hand feed trolls. It annoys me to no end.

    I don’t see the point in helping a pretend personality continue causing trouble and/or drama. FYI DS mods, it doesn’t hurt a trolls feelings when you call them out because they aren’t real! Lets face it many mothers there are gullible and they need people who see it like it is and tell it like it is to inform them when a troll is in the midst. I have been duped by trolls before and if someone else sees through the rouse then I want someone to let me know.

    I got worried every single time a troll sob story would crop up on DS and people jump to help them. It just isnt safe at all. People troll for more than just sh!ts and giggles they can also troll to steal information, scam or harm you. It may not seem nice but really we are looking out for one another.

    I don’t have time right now to really spend on forums but when I do I am not going back to effing DS, I’m still mad that I got a strike for stating immature fat @$$ comments offended me. Who ever reported me deserves to be b* slapped by my husband’s Doctor Manhattan along with the mod that thought it warranted a strike.

    Sorry folks for the rant. I am really angry ATM. Just found out that the bald spot on my nephew’s eyebrow (which he has had ever since before he could walk) was caused my his mother throwing a full soda can at his head. Who in the heck does that?! I am so incredibly angry about this, last night I was stewing over it and I ended up shredding a piece of fabric I had in my hands…. I gots issues.

    BTW welcome snickerdoodle, Ioves your name as well as mommy grizzly (only I call you grizzly momma in my head cause it sounds rad :P)

    :P) < that reminds me of chubby babies XD

  611. Amygamie says:

    Oh and guess what I saw in walmart yesterday?! A chubby girl with a baby doll in a baby carrier, she got caught trying to steal baby toys in her diaper bag. I just wanted to stay there and stare but I didn’t. :P)

  612. Redhead says:

    Amy that is CREEPY! (and funny, I am laughing at the irony!)

  613. mommy grizzly says:

    Dude. I just saw the same thing at Costco. Only she wasn’t stealing. She was feeding her ‘baby’. My 9 year old said, “isn’t she a little old for dollies, mommy?”. I had to just shake my head and walk away.

  614. Snickerdoodle says:

    616- Thank you for the welcome. 🙂 I found this board after DS got hacked and I googled “diaperswappers” At first I was like Drama? what Drama? Its all fluffy kittens and rainbows man. Then I got a little more involved with DS and started seeing the INSANE moderation and realized WHY I thought it was all fluffy kittens and rainbows. 🙂

    And yeah there are LOTS of trolls and scammers on DS. I guess it attracts them.

    Sorry you are dealing with so much stuff right now. I don’t know the story of it all but it sounds rough. 😦

    617 &619 -Dude! you both saw a woman with a baby doll in a carrier? Man, I have yet to see that here. . I can’t imagine that going over too well in this small southern town.

    Oh and I really dig my monster. I think he is “walking like an egyptian for sure” 😀

  615. Redhead says:

    Snickerdoodle- your name made me hungry and I am making cookies now. My girls are in bed.. ALL FOR ME!

  616. Snickerdoodle says:

    I know!… that’s the only problem with my name, it ends up making ME hungry sometimes as well.

    What kind of cookies are you making? Details please. 🙂

    We have some butter frosting chocolate cake over here that is Super de dooper de scrumptious but nothing beats a good cookie… with a cold glass of milk… hot and crispy on the edges but chewy in the middle… mmmm yeah that’s the stuff.

    I feel a little dirty now… 😛

  617. Redhead says:

    Snickerdoodles, of course! 😀

  618. Snickerdoodle says:

    623- LOL! That does sound good right now. yup yup damn my name! 🙂

  619. Mommy Grizzly says:

    I am back from Costco and now I’m on my way to Walmart for milk and Target so kiddo can spend her gift card. BUT, I wanted to tell Amygamie that she can call me whatever she likes, and tell Snickerdoodle that I want to eat her and tell Redhead that I’m mad she never bought me a donut.

    AND with that, I will be getting donut making stuff from the store so I can make MY OWN and I wont be sharing with anybody. Hrmph. Ok, I’ll link to my food porn but THAT’S IT!

  620. Snickerdoodle says:

    625-I have heard that I taste quite good… oh wait you said FOOD porn :D.

    How cool that you are making donuts. What kind? My very favorite is glazed but chocolate and custard filled are good too. mmmmmm donuts…. 🙂

  621. Goomba'sMom says:

    I mostly lurk here, but I can’t believe no one has shared this drama-rific thread! The OP deleted her posts, but you can still see most of them in quotes and the other poster’s comments give you a good idea of the content:

  622. Munklettes says:

    Mmmm, Ben & Jerry’s Snicker-doodle ice cream is back, too. I had some last night in honor of the recent discussion, lol

  623. theinvisible says:

    Well, CDN just became DS lite. Can someone please tell me where everyone from the old CDN went? I miss you guys and I’m forum homeless right now.

  624. Mmspirit7 says:

    sorry i don’t know where everyone went I know I have a board I made thats super small like 8 or 9 members. I heard they went ds lite I am sorry

  625. theinvisible says:

    Good to hear. I noticed you disappeared, C. Let me ask real quick since you’re on, how is everything? Baby soon?

  626. smartassmama says:

    what is meamt by “DS lite?” like having so many DS users on CDN?

  627. Mmspirit7 says:

    Baby is doing well I should have him/her in about 4 weeks I have gotten gestational Diabetes but I am working with it. other than that making me high risk everything going great thanks for asking.

  628. Mmspirit7 says:

    I guess they changed the rules to be more like ds rules are I don’t know it’s just what I heard. I am no longer there.

  629. Mmspirit7 says:

  633. Mmspirit7 says:

  634. Just Peachy says:

    I forgot are you doing a c section or vbac? Either way good luck! I forgot do you know the sex?

  635. Mmspirit7 says:

    Nope we don’t know the sex, and I am hoping for a vbac but might not get it because of the gesetal diabetes and the size fo the baby I have to go into labor my own before 39 weeks other wise it’s a cs. not happy but I am done fighting with the docs

  636. werd says:

    awww. hope you get your VBAC Charise!

  637. Ribbit says:

    I am such a nerd. I thought you were all talking about the Nintendo DS Lite. Haha.

  638. Mmspirit7 says:

    thanks Werd

  639. Just Peachy says:

    Try evening primrose oil up the hooha LOL. I NEVER go naturally before 40 wks and my water broke at 38 wks 6 days just a week after I restarted doing EPO vaginally.

  640. Mmspirit7 says:

    I am planning on that going to pic some up soon thanks.

  641. Mmspirit7 says:

    Pick….ugh I wish I had edit here.

  642. adensmama says:

    I just have to say, and I know this was in a post WAAAY far back, but that chick on DS who writes “God Bless” after every single frickin post- yeah it just makes me want to punch her in the face. I’m sure she’s nice and all, but I guess it doesn’t help that I completely disagree with everything she says. I got so sick of the INYOURFACEGODness of her posts that I put her on my ignore list!

  643. imasupernova says:

    So yeah…anyone see the belly button troll?

  644. Redhead says:

    OMG- Barf!
    He/she asks for pics everywhere…

    and here they ask for swimsuit pics on a toddler forum..

  645. imasupernova says:

    They sure do! I’m not usually gullible but hell I posted an effing picture in the original belly button thread. Damn

  646. Redhead says:

    so this person plays Pokemon and their little brother deleted some pokemon game thingie? Is this like, a kid?

  647. imasupernova says:

    Adult who plays video games yes…but Pokemon…there is no way!

    It says their game name is DAWN…hmm

    OMFG I am not a troll!!!
    I am appauled that so many people are calling me a troll on this site!! I admit that I have asked this same question on other sites too, but I want some clarification on this issue! The reason I asked for pictures was for comparison purposes. I never forced anyone to do anything that they didn’t want to. I still don’t have an answer to my question, but if people think I’m a “troll”, then I won’t ask that question any more.

  649. Snickerdoodle says:

    HAH! Is this the same B double E R poster that had too much to drink and got to posting? I don’t know who that person is but I have to admit to being curious. Of course the belly button thing is pretty… ewwwww uck.

  650. imasupernova says:

    YUP same drunk poster and this person talks about belly buttons and tickling children and asks where your LO likes to be tickled. Creep

  651. Redhead says:

    Seriously, after the FB-pervs thread on CDN.. this fits right with it.

  652. Flat Stainley says:

    That is sickening.

  653. Just Peachy says:

    The way she spelled appalled gave it away for me. And hey now Im 28 and I rock the pokemon albeit I don’t buy em for myself.

  654. Snickerdoodle says:

    Excuse me, is this where I worship at the altar of Procter and Gamble? Im just so lost and confused… I know this Charlies retailer and her clients can show me the way though. 😀

  655. Just Peachy says:


  656. Redhead says:

    I saw her first!!!!

  657. Flat Stainley says:

    ROFLMAO! 😀

  658. CJ says:

    ❤ imasupernova

  659. Just Peachy says:

    I WILL CUT A BITCH! j/k But I thought that post was pretty freaking awesome.

  660. Redhead says:

    In all seriousness, could the baby be having a nocturnal seizure?

    My DH has them, and at time he bites his tongue or cheek which causes bleeding. By morning, there is no blood on his face — the only way we knew he was having seizures was after we got married and I moved in. I would be scared to death finding that on my child. 😦

    Maybe, if someone wants to.. could you suggest that to her? I don’t want to frighten her, but a baseball amount of blood sounds like something serious to me.

  661. Redhead says:

    You know who B&L is here, right, Peachy? I’ll let her out herself again if you don’t 😉

  662. CJ says:

    Where was the post by Bay & Lace? I missed it.

    I can’t imagine not rushing to the doctor if my child was waking with that much blood on the sheets.

  663. sourpatchbabe says:

    Geez, I leave for a few hours to do homework and teach my kid to ride a bike and you guys find the scammer and get her banned. I always miss all the fun, boo hoo!

  664. smartassmama says:

    I had to hold back the laughter to keep my husband from being worried about me! OMFG! You two are great!

    And I feel like a dipshit now, because I did know who Bay n Lace is, but I forgot. Damned Dory mind.

  665. silvaheyes says:

    668 – Agreed. I don’t know why the hell they haven’t taken her to the doctor. That is a lot of blood.

    My youngest spit up a nice amount of blood a couple of months ago when she was around 4 months old. The first thing we did was call the emergency line for our doctors office and made an appointment to see the doctor first thing in the morning since they said to just keep an eye on her and if she did it again to obviously go to the ER.

    In our case our doctor looked her over, didn’t see anything and thought it was probably a scratch or irritation within her stomach since she did spit up a ton although it has never made her uncomfortable so we leave it as is. Thankfully she hasn’t done it ever since but if it were happening every night I think I would do something more than go on a forum and ask there while twiddling my thumbs.

  666. DSDM2 says:

    I would be setting up a camera, and checking on my child every hour/half hour if he or she was waking in pools of blood like that.

  667. Just Peachy says:

    Someone better tell me who she is dammit!

    Re: Explain “wool” to me people, I don’t “get it”!!! lol!
    There have been reports of lanolin poisoning and there’s a TON of controversy about the pesticides in lanolin and it, despite corporate claims, absolutely not being safe for babies (or anyone) to ingest.

    LOL, well people say the same thing about lead paint on walls and baseboards, and then you find your newly crawling baby in the corner chewing on a baseboard. I think it’s just a safety precaution; I’ve heard a lot about not keeping lanolin around the house in BF education circles lately.

    My DH is actually highly allergic to Lanolin, but we still are wool fans here. 🙂

  671. CJ says:

    I guess I’ll tell my toddler to stop sucking on his urine-absorbing wool covers then if the lanolin could be bad. 😛

  672. imasupernova says:

    CRAP! I forgot to go back to the Bloody sheets thread!!

    In all seriousness I hope it is nothing serious with the baby. 😦

  673. cdc says:

    OMG. If there is pesticides in your lanolin, it is less than in your non-organic apple juice. bluaaaaah. Silly people. The lanolin that is used by most (all?) of the wool wash makers is pharm. grade…which is by its definition purified. People drive me nuts.

  674. Michelle_M says:

    Wow, Adensmama, I don’t think anyone has ever said that they wanted to punch me in the face over me genuinly wanting God to bless people. If you truly are that violent and unstable, I’m glad I don’t know you in person.

    At this point I’d normally say “God bless” but I guess I’ll just say “BYE” instead.

  675. dundundun says:

    I have been waiting for this exact comment. Good to see I wasn’t disappointed.
