Got an opinion? Could it be unpopular? If so....post away!

Re: UO

  • Valentine's Day is a stupid "holiday"....it means more to me to get a card or flowers on a random day just because.

    It makes me sad that Texas has watered down history and glosses over slavery in the curriculum...and a list of other important topics.

    Toaster Strudels are superior to pop tarts

    I think people who have huge expensive 1st birthday parties should be honest and admit it is really for them and not their baby.  Does your baby really care what the theme was and if there was a petting zoo??

  • I totally agree about Valentine's day.  What makes it worse is when you tell people that you and DH skip fake hoidays they look at you like you have three heads.

    Along the lines of first birthday parties I am going to go with obnozious "sweet 16" parties.  Not sure about you ladies but being allowed to drive the hideous '85 buick and getting a Dairy Queen ice cream cake was pretty sweet when I turned 16.  If my kids expect to be serenaded by Justin Beiber and be given a brand new Lexus they are going to be really disappointed...

    I am a teacher (well, I SAH now, but I was a 4th grade teacher) and I cannot imagine teaching in Texas.  I've seen a lot in the news about the censorship in the curriculum there and I think it is atrocious.  I did a whole unit on African American history (which sadly includes slavery), a whole unit on Native American history, and I never sugar-coated the fact that many of our founding fathers were slave owners themselves.  I guess when you have a child in Texas you have to teach them certain things yourself (like evolution and sex education and US History).  Yeesh.

    Anyway, my UO is that I am not that excited about getting ultrasounds.  Don't get me wrong, I love it that I get to be reassured that everything is ok with the baby and all, but I feel such a connection with him already and it has nothing to do with seeing a blurry image of him on a screen.  However, when I was pregnant with DD I lived for the ultrasound appts. ha!

  • I completely agree about Valentines day. I actually really hate the holiday because it's the day before my birthday, so growing up, EVERYONE always forgot about my birthday! (including my own mother one year!!) 

     If my husband isn't out of bed in five minutes I'm leaving him and going to the a/s on my own.

    Yes!!  In my family this is a common event.  I have conveniently had other plans every time one of these three ring circuses come to town.  At one everyone was required to dress up as pirates.  Yeah.

     

    My UO - I HATE the book "Love You Forever".  I think it is super creepy.

  • ITA with the big 1st birthday parties. They are overrated. I don't think your 1 year old is going to remember. With DD we had 2 families over and we made appetizers and watched our local college football team play (and of course we did cake/ice cream and opened gifts). It was a blast.

    I really can't think of anything else.

    1) Cross posting gets on my damn nerves. Stop it!  Choose where you want to post...June 2012, 2nd Trimester or the Facebook group. Those of you who post to all THREE need a karate chop.

    2) I said this a couple weeks ago, but I think it bears repeating. If you say something to me along the lines of "I'd vote for anyone over Obama. I don't care who it is," then you are automatically an idiot and I'm not listening to anything else you have to say. 

    3) If a person has absolutely zero moral compass in their private affairs then what in the fvvck makes you think they would be any more honest and upstanding in their public affairs??  Yes, I'm talking to you Newt Gingrich. I hope you're reading this, you beady eyed hobgoblin.

    4) I like Valentine's Day

    5) Yes, there's a clique. I'm in the clique. I like the clique. Either make an effort to be part of it or shut the hell up.

     6) It's not my job to spare the feelings of the world. I am not blunt and honest because I'm a horrible person. I'm blunt and honest because more people could really stand to hear a little blunt honesty.

    7) If someone butthurts you with a comment on Facebook and you fly off the handle and delete them because of ONE bad comment, especially without having an adult conversation with them about it first, then you are just as wrong as they are...and probably more immature.

    Did I  miss the whinypants over this? I didn't really think of it as a clique and even though I may not be part of it I don't really care. I still comment and join in when I have something to say. Who the he!l was complaining about it, what is this high school?  Grow up we are all adults and can choose to like some more than others, and some not at all!

    5) Where is their clique talk?! lol I guess Im in the clique too then. we're not mean or anything! (most of the time..)

    6) This is really why I love you so much

    7) I agree to an extent. Someone posted last night about someone saying her baby would be stillborn, and in that case, I would delete the person right away. I wouldn't even try to discuss it. In the case of politics or religion though, I say if you can't argue your point, you probably have no idea what you're actually standing for.

    Yes and yes.

    I think second baby showers are tacky and gift grabby unless there is a significant age difference between siblings.  I know a lot of the time the moms-to-be have nothing to do with the planning of said second baby shower, but we've made it quite clear we don't want one.  We don't need anything and would be embarassed to have another shower.  Yes, every baby should be celebrated, but there are ways to celebrate a birth without having a shower.

    Me too! My dad's family had a little "service" before my grandparents' 85th birthday party and my aunt read this out loud to everyone for the kids there (all 5 of them). I just kept thinking, when will this be over!

  • I agree with Allison on #4 & 6.
    I like Valentines day too. Unfortunately, I was stupid & decided to get married on the 20th. DH's birthday is on the 17th. We celebrate all 3 the same way every year. Go away for the weekend & go out for a nice dinner. It's getting boring.
    #6. I'm getting sick of hearing people whine that others are so mean. Get a grip or go back to your fantasy world. Or maybe get a sense of humor? I like that I can give my honest opinion here. I'm not going to sugarcoat it so you don't cry.

    I don't mind Valentines Day, but getting a card because it's a holiday seems stupid. That said, if DH surprises me with something this year, I'll be a big ball of hormone mush.

    I hate when people spell "Janine" with an extra e to make it "Jeanine". Looks like "Jeanie." It's said "jah-neen" where the hell did those people learn to spell?! (Hehe I rhymed.)

  • I agree on the Valentine's Day thing. It is a dumb holiday for the card people and the chocolate people to make money.

    I prefer pop-tarts, but that is just me.

    I think some people take the internet way too seriously. You should not let some stranger get you all "butthurt" because they think your comment is stupid. If you have issues with people on this board, ignore them, or better yet leave!

    But then again, it makes good entertainment. (so I am torn) Stick out tongue
