I would not like it, but what is redeeming about it is that it's a sensible, properly spelled name that is clearly female and is not silly flowery. There are far worse things than boring, not terribly pretty sounding names. [ Reply | More ]

I never liked it, honestly. Sounds like 'barbarian'. It also doesn't help that in my native language, 'barba' means beard. All the women I've ever known with this name have been very beautiful, though. [ Reply | More ]

You should see the Barbara I am meeting on Monday. Very good looking woman in her early 50s, elegant in a classic way, ultra smart, accomplished, gracious, retired - she and her husband sold off their very successful business - and now runs one non profit with minimal management costs that they launched. One of the people I respect most. [ Reply | More ]

okay here it is: the stiffness was coming and going, wasn't too bad all the time, I thought bc of life style change (driving) I have to change some of my habits (walk more, stretch more etc) and thought it would go away. there were better days but lately it seems to get worse. When mentioned about this, the general practitioner wasn't concerned at all, you know how they don't treat you unless it becomes chronic and starts affecting your life. so that's why I didn't go to a doctor (specialist) sooner.

FFS. No. I do not depend on others to help but then again I am fine with am umbrella stroller. If you insist on taking a full size on the subway- it's time to move to the burbs lady. You're not cut out to live in this city. I can't stand moms like you who hog space with full size strollers. Ugh [ Reply | More ]

Not necessarily. If a couple is young and doesn't really have friends with children, it's kind of nice to do an all grown up event. Weddings are very expensive and should be personal to the couple. Children aren't entitled to be at weddings. [ Reply | More ]

Personally I've never understood it. My DH's family is huge and they have money up the wazoo. Tens of millions. All their family weddings are filled with families from the grandparents in the walkers and chairs to the babies. I don't get the brides who need to have some kind of princess ceremony where they are the center of attention with no distractions from the *vast importance* of their shining moment where they accept the crown of the realm. But I kind of pity their husbands because it seems to be a solid indicator of how they will deal with real life later. [ Reply | More ]

This is actually a good point. If we can exclude children from our weddings because they are unsightly and distracting … can we also ask that all the elderly and dependent relatives not attend. I mean who wants old Aunt Gladys in her Depends and her scooter or whatever smelling up someone's lovely reception hall. [ Reply | More ]

Personally, I agree that child free weddings are lame, and including kids is infinitely more fun. But I'm someone who throughly enjoys kids in general. This is not all adults. I can relate in that I'm someone who doesn't really like animals at all. Can't stand when they touch me. Do not think they are cute at all. Would definitely not want them at my wedding. That's how some people feel about kids, so why would they invite them? Also some people find it stressful to tend to children. If you're like that having them at a wedding wouldn't be very fun.

In England, weddings generally take place during the day and there is a luncheon or a wedding breakfast, so sure, bring the kids. But a Saturday night wedding at the Four Seasons? The kids are not going to have a good time so nobody else will either -- too late and too much stimulation. [ Reply | More ]
