You have to give it away. You can save a few outfits, but there is no reason to haord the clothes. You will get rid of them evenutally, so why not now when someone can use them. Yes, it stabs your heart a tiny bit, but then you get over it. [ Reply | More ]

yeah I know. It's not the clothes really. I have already given away all of that except for a few special things. It's her crib and the mirror that let's you see the baby in the carseat etc. Stuff like that. I guess I was hanging onto them just in case. But now, I seem to be in menopause and I guess I need to get over it huh? Thanks [ Reply | More ]

if you had a dd, you could give her a unique perspective on men.

You may have a more varied group of friends than many straight people who havn't had to go searching for people like themselves. That's just a few off the top of my head. Seriously - there are good points and bad to any family. That's life and no situation is perfect. Your kids will grow up and rebel against you and go one and be good solid adults.

There is no such thing as an "outsider parent". If you have children, you are a parent. Plain and simple. You struggle with the same things everyone else who is a parent struggles with. IF you find yourself as an adult not making friends with the other adults that just so happen to send their children to the same square box called a school - then either figure out why and fix it or get over it and hang out with the people you already have in your life that are friends. You really do make way to big of a deal about being gay and parenting. If you went to my school, I'd tell you so face to face and if you continuted to complain about your unique (not) struggles, I wouldn't hang out with you either. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Will they postpone my jury duty again? I postponed it once when youngest was 1. Now he's 5. Do I go down there with his birth certificate, or do I need any other documentation? I am the sole caregiver, and have an older child. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I think you go down personally with your kids info, but go to their website. [ Reply | More ]

I don't know, I think you only get one time. Or just show up the day for jury duty with the child and say you can't find a sitter. [ Reply | More ]

You will have to do it at some point, it lasts usually one day now, your chnces of getting picked for a trial are slim to none, then you don't serve again for I think about 8 years. Just get it over with already, even if you get another date, will you be in any better position? [ Reply | More ]

I just did this. You need to go down there. Take your youngest child (or both children) with you, and bring the birth certificate of your youngest child. They will ask you whether or not you work outside the home. They will also ask if and when your youngest child attends school. If your child attends school full time, they may call you to do jury duty from 10am - 1pm Mon - Fri for a month! If not, then you are exempt and won't be called again for two years. [ Reply | More ]

also - best time to go down there is around 10:30am - there's a line first thing in the morning. Also - the 10am - 1pm time was for Grand Jury - not sure what they do for regular jury duty - you may just be exempt for two years. [ Reply | More ]

not sure-I have heard that donor sperm is less effective because it is frozen and then thawed, but not sure if that is true or not [ Reply | More ]
