[ - ] Anyone know anything about Los Gatos, CA? I have never even been to CA and am a little nervous as I have lived on the east coast my entire life but my husband got a job near there and says that area is really nice. Of course, we're going to go and visit but I'd like some knowledge before I go. Anything? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Doctor wife is out tonight and left me alone with the kids, and I had the best conversation I've had with my 8 year old in months since she wasn't yelling at him and giving him shit about every little thing. My own father left me so Im very, very wary of breaking up our family but I do wonder if it wouldn't be better if I just had the kids during the week on my own and did maybe 20% more work than Im doing now and then at least got a day or two on the weekends to myself. Any single parents who can weigh in? 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The first time we were willing to pay for it and I think it was about $800 (this was several years ago) but there weren't any available. The second time I had decided sharing wasn't terrible enough to be worth that much money, especially because I was getting a C-section and would be there for 3-4 nights, just seemed nuts to spend thousands of dollars to avoid what amounts to a short inconvenience.

So you followed at least one family around long enough to notice that they ate ice cream once per hour. That is called stalking. [ Reply | More ]

np. Actually when the park is a loop and you spend the whole day moving from one place to another or sometimes backtracking, you can often spot the same people sitting down eating again, just in a different spot. If you recognize a group at all, and are at the same park, you can often see them again up to half a dozen times over the same day. [ Reply | More ]

This is because if you have already caught up with a particular group at a particular time, you tend to have arrived at the park at roughly the same time. Everyone's moving in a clockwise fashion. [ Reply | More ]

Don't lump them all together. My nephew has spina bifida and uses a wheelchair to get around. He cannot walk or climb stairs. He's overweight, too but that has nothing to do with him using a wheelchair. Try not to judge everyone too harshly. [ Reply | More ]

Definitely not. There are just so many. I would say 20 percent of visitors are obese in electric wheelchairs and people definitely do use them because there is a lot of walking involved, more than they are used to. [ Reply | More ]

I don't think anyone would mistake your nephew for what we're talking about. There is an obvious divide between the families who have handicapped members and the ones who have a whole family with issues. [ Reply | More ]

It is sad. It's not even overweight, it's full on obese. Those scooters riders. You're not disabled. You're eating yourself to death in front of your kids. It's so irresponsible. If you see a drunk mom, you'll report them. But yet moms who stuff themselves silly, can't walk, can't respond to children and also forcing the same bad eating habits to their kids get to cut the lines. [ Reply | More ]

I'm really afraid for my nephew because you are really judgemental and you really don't know the reason why EACH person might be in need of a wheelchair. Being unable to use your legs to walk is really a hardship. Remember some people might have a disability unrelated to their weight. ie spina bifida. [ Reply | More ]

np. I posted above and you responded. I don't think people are judging people individually for as you know, many people have disabilities. It is just the large percentage of visitors who are 1. obese and 2. drive around in those scooters. It is more of a judgement on and sadness of society as a whole. [ Reply | More ]

Funny you mention SB. My son ACTUALLY has Spina Bifida (S4). And we are extremely careful with his diet. Putting on even a little weight will affect his walking. And the ones I judge are not the one with pre existing condition. They are on scooter because they are eating a tub of ice cream, on the scooter. I interact with a lot of disability people. Most are not what you see in WDW. [ Reply | More ]

Wow. Awesome. :) My nephew is super bright and a great kid. Unfortunately, he is pretty over weight. His disability is high enough on the spine that he needs to catheter himself and has problems with bowel control. How is your son doing? [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] The daughter of a UMC woman I went to college with is serving nine years for armed robbery. Apparently she began dating a gang member in highschool, her parents weren't able to break it up in time, and she was on-site when her boyfriend and two of his friends pointed weapons at people leaving a sports event and stole their wallets. They got caught by nearby patrol cars and she was convicted of being a participant (I think she tried to hide one of their guns). Anyway, mommas, don't let your girls date thugs! It often ends poorly. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
