    I hate kiddie CDs. For some reason people keep buying them for us. I've tried and tried and tried to listen to Old McDonald and Twinkle Twinkle but seriously I just can't do it. I don't care if it's kids or adults singing it's annoying. We lare back to  sports talk radio and the little guy seems to enjoy it, and so do I.

    I've seen a lot of articles lately about people with PHDs on foodstamps, etc. My first reaction was "Shocker! Did you really think the market would have a burning need for medieval architecture experts?" It is a bad economy, and these people have not cultivated sought-after knowledge or skills. I get that they may have been pursuing their passion, but then don't whine about how the universe has deprived you of what you "earned".

    I couldn't care less whether MH did or did not do something for me for mother's day.

    He got me a card and said happy mother's day but other than that we didn't do anything special (other than go out to eat because we were out of town at my brother's graduation).

    I just didn't get all of the posts about people complaining nothing big/grand/special happened for their mother's day.

    I believe you want to say 'could not' care less.  And I was feeling this way, but then, by power of suggestion thanks to this board, I thought 'hmm...perhaps he could have put a little more thought into it besides a card from him a card from Stella.  Damn board.

    I think the Married Life reaction to the board changes was a little ridiculous. I get that they have complaints. I agree with them on that. I thought the pampers coup was hilarious. But then they started being really mean to Kathleen and Heather and I thought that was uncalled for. Then they tried to edit wikipedia to reflect the incident. Also funny, but the editing war they got into makes me think they have a little too much time on their hands.

    I also hate kiddie songs. Hannah has never heard "row row your boat", "twinkle twinkle" or most other songs. She likes Irish music. I am good with that.

    These music UOs are cracking me up.  I'm totally with you girls; we are always listening to MY music and my kids love dancing to that, but trust me when I say that there will come a day that you will be singing Itsy Bitsy and Wheels on the Bus over and over and over and over and over....at dinner, in the car, before bed, during bed, after naps, in the shower...and it is sooner than you think.  Stick out tongue

    Speaking of kids' music....there is a toddler station on Pandora.  If you haven't yet checked it out, you should...not as bad as what it sounds.  It does have the kids songs on...but I just thumbs down the song so that I am not subjected to it again (however, they sometimes will slip a different version by on occasion).  It plays a lot of raggae and oldies.  One of my favorites, though, has to be the lullabied version of Journey's 'Dont' Stop Believing.'

    I had no idea. I love Pandora and will have to check that out.

    I don't LOVE cake smash pics. I guess sometimes they're cute. I am on the fence about them. I haven't decided yet whether we'll do them, but they are def not something I "have" to do. I guess it's more of a "I can take it or leave it" kind of thing.

    Smoking outdoors is just as annoying. I know people need their smoking spaces, but not in a kids' park. 

    Today I took DD to the park and she fell asleep in the car. I parked and opened my door to get fresh air while she slept. All of a sudden I'm smelling smoke. A woman brought her kids to the park and was smoking right near my car as she watched them play. Grrrr!!!!

    I'm so already there, lol :)  and I have zero problem with it.  If Wheels on the Bus makes him calm down, then I will sing it a million times.  If 3 little fishies makes him laugh in the tub, then I'm all over it!

    Or while sprinting through the mall while pushing your double stroller because you just neeeeeed to get to two more quick stops before your kids totally lose it.  We did it all: the doors, the wheels, the money, the windows, the driver, the baby, the mommy, the daddy, the horn, the wipers...I can sing while sprinting.

    I do too. I sing them to Callie all the time. Not the wiggles, because I don't know the songs, but kid songs in general. I have vivid memories of listening to children's CDs growing up and loving it. I want the same for Callie. I love a good Raffi CD!

    FYI - I also heard that Jewel's lullaby cd/kids cd is awesome. I'm planning on checking that out.

    I sing them to Ash all the time too! He will put up with my music for a bit, but eventually will start yelling from the back seat until I turn his music on, and then he will be quiet for the rest of the ride! He definitely has already developed a preference. If he is particularly cranky I sing along with the music and he loves it!

     I, however, hate having to listen to myself sing "do your ears hang low" for 15 miles!

    I think all the uproar over the board changes is ridiculous (not just people on this board but on any board).  So what if they are making some changes?  Roll with it.  It's just a message board.

    I don't see the super-big-deal when babies don't have shoes on.  As long as they aren't walking around, or reached walking age. Weather permitting, I don't see what the huge deal is. DS always kicks his shoes off, he HATES them. He usually has socks on, but if it's 80 degress outside and I'm carrying him somewhere, I really don't see the need to make him scream while I put shoes on him. Shoes are for walking, which he doesn't do yet. I don't see why it bothers people so much.

    I'm more likely to give a side-eye to an adult out in public wearing dirty tinkerbell pajama pants. But hey, that's just me.

    I don't see the big deal even when they are walking around.  It's been proven that barefoot is best both in general and for new walkers.

    I agree with this- we went to six flags, but that's just because we had a coupon that I got in free on Mothers Day.

    IMHO EVERYDAY is Mothers day, your DH/SO should treat you the same way everyday, not "special" one day out of the year.  But I know that's just crazy talk for most people.

    My LO LOVES the wheels on the bus. I sing it two or three times in a row and she is out like a light. I have been known to add quite a few things on to the bus as well.

    I love kiddie music bc it reminds me of growing up. I always sing silly songs to M, and DH swears I made them up, but nope, they are real songs :) 

    On Saturday mornings we bring M into the bed with us if he wakes up uber early and I put the Toddler Pandora station on and we sing and dance and giggle. It's one of my fave family times.

    i think that some kids' songs are really good.  granted, there are plenty that i wouldn't want to hear all the time, but having kids has been a good excuse to sing all of those songs.

    i also agree with pp that i don't expect to be pampered on mother's day.  a card and a small gift were fine.  being a mother is its own reward.

    and a UO/vent from me:

    i think it's silly to re-name airports after people.  i always know who's from out of town when they say they're flying into Reagan.  i still say "National" and i'm going to continue to say "National."  and who the *** though it would be a good idea to re-name BWI to Thurgood Marshall-BWI ...?  seriously? 

    okay.  i'm going to calm down now...

    lol. We have John Wayne Airport, but either they changed the name a long time ago, or it has always been called that, because no one calls in Santa Ana, which is its airport code (SNA).

    Haha! All of this! She even signs for it by rolling her wrists every time she nurses.  It's hysterical.  Funny thing is I never really sang it to her but they did it in swimming lessons.

    The wheels on the bus is the sole reason I get the 5 min of shower time that I do.  While she's screaming and banging on the shower door because I dared to put her down its the only thing that will calm her down at all.

    i dont mind the kids music either. They gave us a CD at school that goes along with their music program and we've listened to it a lot with her in the car. Most aren't the typical songs everyone knows, but definitely kid music. As the Dallas moms can attest "When Lexi wakes up in the morning..." is instant-calm-down-crack for my girl :)
