    I think the Gaines' are brilliant or have a brilliant manager. They are getting their fame and fortune everywhere they can...while they can. It won't surprise me if they quietly disappear as time...

    As I have said, I fully intend to get the shots if we visit anytime soon. I dealt with an overbearing mother-in-law when I had DD (enough so that we moved to another city) so I get that it is her...

    I also wonder if there is a lot of non-parenting going on. I have mentioned it before, but I can pick out the future misfits even in kindergarten where I volunteer.

    Around here, lots of folks are doing wall to wall rocks. Makes me sad...but I guess you don't have to think too much about keeping it up. Roundup is the drug of choice.
