    @jsmai what is the difference between a medical massage therapist and a "regular" massage therapist? Do you only work with health care type places?

    Yes to both of these!  I'm ashamed proud able to recite all of the words to "Can I get A..." the explicit version all of these years later. I think it was one of my favorite songs in HS 
    Still love it.  Its a classic lol.  And he's still my favorite.

    Medical massage is more goal oriented/ treatment based and is usually deeper/more specific than your typical relaxation massages. I use a lot of different modalities (I.e. massage techniques) in my treatments and most of my clients are looking for pain management.

    Its a lot of fun and I love helping people understand how their body works while working to improve their day to day lives. Most of the people i see have overuse issues from computer work. I also work with a lot of recreational athletes and pregnant clients.

    Awesome @jsmai when I was running more I would see a really good sports massage guy who incorporated a lot of stretching and stuff too which was nice 
  • @jsmai I wish you were closer! I pulled the trapezoid in my neck this weekend. I whipped my head around to see Kevin Nealon from SNL. May be the most embarrassing way to pull a muscle; trying to get a good look at a B list celebrity.

    What are you looking forward to most about this next stage with the baby: I'm so excited for crawling! 
    What are you looking forward to the least: Also very nervous for crawling - we need to baby proof! I'm also not very excited about solid food poops since we cloth diaper. 
    Summer plans: a barbeque party, a cabin weekend, and a camp out (fancy RV camping). 
    Favorite movie from when you were young (kid/teen/whatever): I am a twin, so my sister and I loved It Takes Two when we were little. 
    Favorite singer/group from when you were young (kid/teen/whatever): hmmmmmm, I wasn't huge into music when I was a teen. I liked N'SYNC because my older sister loved them. 
    Anything else you want to share: I am currently sitting watching Netflix when I should be putting our diapers in the dryer and washing dishes.

    @desoky01 YES! I'm a twin, too, and loved movies with twins in the like the original Parent Trap and It Takes Two!

    Also, what cloth diapers do you use? I want so much to cloth diaper, but just haven't made the full leap yet.
    Also, re:sold food poops, my brother and his wife keep a dollar store spatula in the bathroom to quickly scrape it off the diaper into the toilet and said it made it an easy thing to deal with.

  • @SandNStarsNJ - I miss the Jersey shore so much! I was born in NJ and even though we moved when I was 5, we still went down to LBI every summer.  <3

  • @lajoliedreamer LBI has changed a lot since Hurricane Sandy but it's still a nice island to get away. I was born and raised in Seaside Park, so just a touch further north. Where abouts are you from?

    I haven't been back since Sandy, I wondered how badly it was hit. My cousin and her family went last summer and the house we always stayed at looked like it did alright, but she didn't post a lot of pics of the rest of the island.

    I was born in Livingston, but have family all over from Basking Ridge to Newark to Vincentown.

  • @lajoliedreamer yay twins! We use softbums for cloth diapers. I have mostly loved them so far, I like not having to go out and buy diapers all the time. Sometimes I wish we used cloth wipes too, but haven't made the leap yet (we may never.) Cloth diapering for EBF poops is so easy, you don't have to do anything special, just throw them in the wash! It grosses some people out but not me, it all washes out. The peanut butter starting solid poops have been a little more work, we have mostly been doing the wipe off into the toilet. I might just get a spatula! I've considered a diaper sprayer as well.

    Ahhhh!!! @hoosiermama-2 and @m6agua ;I'm so glad I'm not alone in the HIM train! None of my friends ever really got into them so I would go to their shows alone or with an unwillingly accomplice haha. I met their singer Ville once as I ran into him in the halls of one of the venues and I just stood their grinning like a dope and managed to get out a "I've loved you guys since I was 15." They're great live! And yes I believe they are touring. I have to check back about dates last I looked they hadn't posted US dates yet. Also, being from Boston when my friends found out Tuukka Rask (who is also from Finland like HIM) listened to them I was like well duh... They're amazeballs.

    @kvruns it's such a classic right? My girls now love it. My 2 year olds favorite part is when they all barf on the ride after using the chewing tabaco.

    @lajoliedreamer "here we come... walking down the street.." ugh loved the monkees!
