Since we're talking ear piercing and all that, it made me think of the rules that my parents had that as a kid, I thought were ridiculous. Now keep in mind, my parents were practically geriatric when they had me (seriously, as a family we could order off the senior menu and kids menu at the same time) - so some of their rules were pretty old fashioned.
But now that I have kids, I find myself implementing some of them myself.
Aside from the obvious rules, what were some of the "bogus" rules that your parents had that you have surprised yourself by implementing as well?
2007: Started TTC. 2008: OB prescribed clomid, went to RE and was Dx with PCOS.
2009: IUI #1 w/follitsim and trigger = BFP. B/G Twins born at 33 weeks.
2012: TTC #3, Round 2 of Letrozole w/TI = BFP, missed m/c at 8 1/2 wks.
Currently on the bench as we make plans for a new home. Anxious to start TTC #3 within the next year!
