    I just went outside at its 37 degrees so short sleeves were a bad choice but I was reminded of how I hate hot weather and cold days are where it's at!

  • @ecwk that’s not an UO to me, I love the cold weather! As long as it’s dry....

    My UO is I don’t like it when babies wear pajamas in public. I get why parents do it. It’s warm and an easy one piece outfit. I just think it makes the baby look lazy :lol: I know that’s silly! I just always dressed my son. I wouldn’t wear pajamas in public, so neither will he! (I mean, unless it’s a pajama party and it’s expected!)

    @lalala2004 You're in TX, right? Do you get many cold days where you are? Agree about the PJs, I would leave DS in his if I was just running to the Dunkin' Drive Thru or something but if we are out and about, it's clothes! 

    @msmonalisavito ; Yeah, that makes me cringe a wee bit too!!

    As someone who's never had a baby, I'm not entirely convinced that I could tell the difference between "pajamas" and a "onsie". :)

  • Oh I know. I get it. It’s a semantics thing that bugs me mostly. It’s more the ppl saying ‘wth I’m already showing at only 6w! Im
    not gonna be able to hide it!’ And the finger wagging bc of how it’s said. 

    I n my first three preg I took pics starting early and things did start to change a little bit early early. And everyone’s body reacts differently to pregnancy. This time it’s number 6 for me and I’m afraid at 5 weeks it’s getting hard to hide bwahaha. The depression weight I gained doesn’t help lol.

    @lalala2004 I let the kids pick their clothes most days, and footie jammies is 90% of what they pick. I only offer weather appropriate clothes, but in Idaho Fleece is pretty acceptable from about Oct-April. No shame.

    @msmonalisavito I agree. I understand that dad is trying to get involved and helpful/excited, but dude your body doesn't change and you don't get the hormones, back off. 

    @pghctwife I am one of the 'bump pic nazis'. If you want to take a picture of your bloat/burrito, go ahead, just don't post it and caption it so reads like you think its baby. I know in written word its hard to understand tone and sarcasm/joking so I always assume the worst. Hence why I jump all over what appears to be serious misinformation.  

    AFM: I wish 'public shaming' was more accepted at schools. Meaning: I have several students who don't care if we go into the hall t o call mom/dad and explain the issues, but if I make them do it in front of the class they will do anything to stop it. Alas, I am no longer allowed to actually have them call home in front of the class.

    Well, most people get bloating with PMS, but they don’t say their PMS is showing. Bloat is bloat. I agree it’s semantics, but I happen to think semantics are important ;)

  • I guess. I’ve never needed maternity pants from my period but I guess everyone’s different. 

    I agree words matter; just disagree that saying ‘geez I’m already shpwing’ Means ‘my uterus has risen above my pubic bone.’ Obviously it’s an UO lol.

  • Skittles are better than Starbursts.

    Chocolate is king of all the candy.

    Wait...people would disagree with this?? Actually though, it does depend on what type of chocolate you are talking about...

  • @ecwk I wholeheartedly disagree with @msmonalisavito Starburst every day, all day. 
    Also, chocolate is ok if it is to cover caramel or nuts, or both. Otherwise its gross.

  • @mrsinterweb Preach, girl.  I'm so glad DD is too young to understand what it is right now, and I sincerely hope it dies off before she's old enough to ask why we don't have it!

  • @mrsinterweb I’m with you!!! I’m a Christmas FREAK for real but the elf wasn’t a thing when I was a kid, and I’m more into putting effort into stuff that speaks to me. I do a tonnnnn of other stuff so, whatever. I opted out from the jump. Mil tried to give up one when our oldest was a baby and we were all “NOOOOOOO!!!!!!” I stick to the Santa Claus is watching for behavior threats hehe. 

    My oldest is 6.5 now and it hasn’t been an issue yet.

    Yes!!! MIL bought us one last year (DS was 9 mo at the time) and I didn't use it and I don't intend to even though she keeps mentioning it. Maybe will pass it along to my SILs and see if they're interested!

  • @pghctwife that's good to hear that you opted out and it hasn't been an issue! I feel like there's so much pressure on parents these days and it's good to hear that the kids won't be bothered if we don't do it. I'd much rather create our own traditions that can also easily fit into our lifestyle. :)

  • Elf on the Shelf is the creepiest thing ever. I’m not even a big Santa fan, but that’s unavoidable. DH wants to write a horror story about Elf on the Shelf :lol:

  • @mrsinterweb  yep! My friend is doing it this year and every other day on FB is a humblebrag about how clever and funny they are with this elf. My sister is doing it this year, too. I hope we don't do it, but what if the elf becomes as ubiquitous as Santa and we basically have to?!

  • I guess another UO I have is that I like Elf on the Shelf.  It just adds another area of excitement for my kids and it's fun to see how excited they are to find their elf every morning.

    However, we just move him around the house. I don't do anything fancy and we don't take pictures of it.  Some may have the extra time for that but not this gal.

    @legallykate I personally only wear athleisure when I headed to the gym. That said I don't judge it even close to PJ's. Also do you guys remember the velvor track suit days. Maybe most of you are to young but when I was in HS those things were amazing

  • My son was born in December and he we just dressed him in the warmest thing. Socks are a joke with newborns, so footie onesies we’re our goto. He wasn’t almost always covered with the bundleme in the car seat anyway. @derbysquirrel I don’t think I can tell the difference between footed onsies and PJs for a newborn, and I am a mom! Lol!
    @msmonalisavito We do the same thing with elf on a shelf. Although I swore I’d never do it, my cousin gifted us one. And my son goes crazy for it every morning. I think the magic of Christmas is so short so I want to maximize it. And we just put it on a different shelf or picture frame every morning so it’s not a big commitment. Watching him look for it and find it is so cute. He’s not a tattling elf either, we just tell him that he’s here to spread Christmas cheer!
