Sometimes I just have to close the BC window and walk away. Someone just posted in one of the forums that she was trying to let her 1yo CIO, but for the last three nights, her daughter cried until she vomited Amazingly enough, she wasn't sure what she should do. And THEN people were suggesting she just stick with it, and not even clean up the vomit. (Apparently this baby is just vomiting to get attention, and that'll teach her not to do it any more.) 0_0

I'm sorry, but NO. Nuh-uh. That is lazy, crappy, cruel parenting, end of story. I am vehemently against CIO in any form, but I know people do it and it works for them. But if your baby cries until she vomits, repeatedly, it is clearly NOT WORKING, okay?

Step up and be a damn parent. Just because your child inconveniently needs parenting in the middle of the night when you would rather be sleeping is no excuse.

Now excuse me while I try not to vomit thinking about that poor baby.

My right pinky toe is fractured, and there isn't much they can do but show you how to tape it up. It doesn't really hurt unless I put weight on it -- it's amazing how much you use that tiny toe when you walk!

So I'm on crutches for a while, and cursing my own clumsiness. Temporarily inconvenienced, but otherwise just fine. :-P
You know that car commercial campaign Brooke Shields has been doing lately, in which the joke is that people are getting pregnant JUST so they can buy minivans? That commercial pissed me off the first time I saw it. Why?

Because Brooke Shields struggled with infertility for years, just like I did. She needed IVF to get pregnant, and had at least one miscarriage. She even wrote in her book about how horrible it was to deal with the insensitivity of others when struggling with infertility. So why is she trivializing and making a joke of TTC now?

This person said it better than I can.
