Re: Just Do It!

I've had a paper ready to be submitted for publication for the past two years! The only thing missing is polishing up the figures and tables, but I can't bring myself to finish it... :wall:

Re: Can you swallow pills?

With great difficulty. And I can't do it with water. I have to eat something, usually yoghurt or ice-cream, and just as I'm about to swallow it I pop the pill in and swallow them at the same time.

Re: PS Mommy thread with toddlers 12-36 months

Delurking to put in my 2 cents on the milk issue JGator is facing. N has refused milk since we travelled to the US in May. I tried to give him formula on the plane (didn't realise they just give you whole milk if you ask them, duh! :roll:) and he hated it so much that he's refused to have any milk s...

Re: Cars, What's your country preference?

Japanese cars are the cheapest where I'm from, so that's what my family's always driven. I drive a Vauxhall, which I got when I was still living in the UK where Vauxhalls are popular. Vauxhall is the British name of a dutch car, I think. Anyway, in my country you'll see mostly Japanese since they're...

Re: Do most European men wear wedding bands?

I would say that most men my dad's age (60s) don't. Most men my husband's age do (30s). My husband is American and only wears his ring occasionally.

Re: PS Mommy thread with toddlers 12-36 months

Hi everyone, Sorry I've been a bad PSer and not posting much. We're finally back from our trip to the US and are battling jet-lag. Last night (our second night back), N did 8-4:45 so I'm happy. I think he should have readjusted by the end of the week - hopefully this isn't wishful thinking. Thank yo...

Re: At what age did you lose your virginity?

You need an n/a option . Good point. Sorry all you virgins. I'd start a new poll for you, but PS only allows us 10 poll answers and I would need 80 to cover all possible ages. Someone at an age not offered would go bananas. Or just combine some ages . Sorry sorry I know you hate poll critiques. Jus...

Re: Americans, how do you feel about America?

Redwood, I find it interesting that you seem to be proud of the fact that you went back to work after 8 weeks. I also find it interesting that you say your husband was there, which would be perfectly acceptable if you hadn't qualified that with how that was preferable than paying for daycare. I unde...

Re: Americans, how do you feel about America?

DF, immigration is not a good way to judge how great a country is. Look at the kind of immigration the US gets (in masses, not individual immigration).

Re: Non-Americans, how do you feel about America?

I voted 6, as in "above average". For what it's worth, I don't think there's such a thing as "best country in the world". PROs: 1. The mentality that you can achieve everything you want as long as you put your mind to it. 2. Good higher education. 3. Diverse population. 4. Comfor...

Re: PS Mommy thread with toddlers 12-36 months

Now that you mentioned eating from a plate… N used to be good at self-feeding by just eating his finger food off his tray. For the first month in Cali, we just had him sit on a dining chair at the table. He couldn't really reach the table, so we just spoon-fed. So now I feel he's regressed. How did ...

Re: PS Mommy thread with toddlers 12-36 months

Thanks, Mayerling! I guess I'll see what's on the shelf at Target later. Maybe my only option is really the kind that come with trays. It's not that big of a deal, I just hate to have another piece of clutter to hang onto (the tray) until we grow out of the booster seat, too. The tray comes off whe...

Re: Do you parent like your parents did?

No. My parents spanked (obviously not all the time, but they did), swatted hands, etc. They also scared me into not doing certain behaviours. I'm against physical or verbal violence of any form. I also understand what my child is able to comprehend at his age, and don't expect him to act in ways tha...

Re: How noisy is your family/home?

I have a toddler so there is a bit of noise when he's awake but really not much. Otherwise it's me and and my husband and we're both very quiet. No tv on unless we're watching, no music on, etc.

I'm just as stuck today as I was Thursday. Thursday, it had been two years without the kids living with us. I have been very lucky. I've only had two real bad days in my life.
