[ - ] I live in a very small town home community. All of the neighborhood kids, my eight-year old dd included, share a common play area and I am forced to interact with a particular mom who is extremely nosy. I see her several times a week during the summer months when our kids play together and a majority of our conversation consists of her ambushing me with questions: where did you go this weekend, what are you making for dinner, when are you going on vacation, does your daughter do well in school. She asks my husband the same questions she asks me and then she’ll re-ask me the same questions AGAIN the next day I see her. The questions just never stop and I am beginning to feel like I have a stalker on my hands. I am a naturally friendly person, so acting cold is a difficult thing for me to do, but I know that I need to pull way back from this mom. How can I tell her to mind her own business without creating an awkward situation? My daughter and her son love playing with one another, and there is nowhere else for us to play in the neighborhood, so avoiding her altogether is impossible. 21 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I'm a little taller (5'7) and weigh a bit more (164) but comparable I think. I work out and am muscular and have a small waist, small hips and wear small sizes. I would like to be thinner but I carry my weight well and also think I appear thinner than I am. Check out my bodygallery .com and plug in you weight and height to see what it looks like on many women. You'll see there are many variations from thin and fit to chunky which goes to show you can't rely simply on height and weight [ Reply | More ]

I could have written this post (I'm 5'6 and 157, early 40s). I don't have a naturally thin build, but I'm very fit looking. People often remark on how in shape I look. Honestly, my weight is very evenly distributed which means that I tend to look like I weigh less than I do--even when I'm heavier (even my doctor said this). I'm a size 8 in most things (occasionally a 6). I feel great at this size/weight. Best of all, I don't feel deprived. If I want to eat something, I have it. I'd have to make a full time job of managing my food/weight/exercise to be 120. It's not worth it to me. [ Reply | More ]

I've lost 7 pounds so far but it has taken me a really long time, mostly because I'm very inconsistent with my eating. I do well during the week and then the weekend happens, with parties, special events etc. where it's hard to stay on track. I'm just so frustrated and want to cry sometimes.

You might be eating better than you realize on the weekend because now you are just aware of when you're off-track. You can definitely do it.

My friends who did Whole 30 have done really well --give the book a look. You are going to have to be disciplined and completely change the majority of your food preferences. Your tastes will change once you give healthy habits time to set in. For example, I would never touch a soda but I'm drinking a tall glass of selzer with a tiny splash of grape juice. Learn to love black coffee etc. You just have to move those habits forward. It takes time. [ Reply | More ]

No, but he speaks Spanish, which is very cute. I never had any desire to teach him how to roller skate or ride a bicycle. He's a quiet, mellow guy who is always walking around looking to be picked up and loved up. He has a reputation at my veterinarian's office (where I board him when I go away on vacation) for being quite the ladies' man. He walks around and tugs on pant legs waiting to be picked up and stroked. He is very much a snuggler! [ Reply | More ]

My dd has always loved birds too. I think since this has been a long-term interest, not something she has just started asking about, you should say yes. Especially at this age... a pet can be a great thing. Birds can be held, they have personalities and can make great pets. We have chickens, and that has satisfied the bird thing for my dd, but she also volunteers at a bird rehab center and will probably get a parrot when she is an adult. I have indulged the pet thing with dd, over the years we have had rabbits, chickens, guinea pigs, ducks, quail and a dog... all totally worth it, totally fun and brought great love and learning into our home.

OP: this child wants to be an ornithologist. I have to give in at some point. She is supposed to get her own ipad for her birthday but said she'd like to forgo that and get a $20 bird instead. She created a whole power point presentation to try and convince me --with a budget for food, supplies, etc. She's a good girl who gets good grades and helps the disabled kids off the bus at school every day. I really cannot justify not giving her a pet bird.....UGH!!!!!!! [ Reply | More ]

Wow, sounds like you don't have a choice with this, she's done her homework and good for her! I would definitely say yes, and you may be surprised and enjoy it! When we first got chickens, I said I didn't want anything to do with them, it was going to be dd and dh's thing. But over the years, through dd's interest, I learned so much about birds, I find them fascinating and love them. Also, I have a cousin who is an ornithologist, he started as just a kid who loved birds, and ended up having a fantastic career. Support her interest, it could be her life's passion. [ Reply | More ]

Parrot Mom here: That is so cute! You should get her the bird. She will learn so much about birds by having one. Maybe one day she'll become a parrot mom like me. ;) [ Reply | More ]

Get her the bird! When my dd was around that age, we read the book "Birdology" together... really fascinating and helped me to understand what she found so interesting and appealing about birds... gave us a lot to talk about too. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Attending a wedding soon and purchased an amazing Jane Taylor fascinator. The bride is upset and doesn't want me to wear it. Others will be in jeans. Why can't I wear a hat? 23 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Are you trying to outdo the bride? Is it a mismatch for the theme of the wedding? [ Reply | More ]
