I dont know if Idiocy is a word but it fits so I am going to use it! I was reading an article this morning on AOL about the new BabyTalk magazine cover. Apparently lots of people are Outraged because they have a picture of a baby nursing at her mothers breast. (click here for the article) Its obviously NOT Xrated but just a picture of a nursing baby. Its funny to hear peoples responses because people are talking about how they shredded it when they received it and how this is Filth! LMAO!!! OK thats just hysterical. Are people REALLY that ignorant???? The article itself leaned towards supporting breasfeeding but reading the reactions and comments of people just made my blood boil! I cant tell you how I would LOVE to get stuck in a room with one of these ladies and talk to her! We put Nudityy and Crap all over TV but people are offended when they see a mother nourishing her baby? HUH? OK so THEN, I decide to read some of the things people have posted and the First one I read says this.......
"FIRST OF ALL SHAME ON ALL OF YOU DISGUSTING PEOPLE SAYING THAT IT IS OKAY TO BREAT FEED.HOW DARE YOU?IT IS WRONG THAT IS WHY WE HAVE BABY FORMULA AT STORES.IT IS DISGUTING TO SEE THE ANIMALISTIC THINGS THAT WE DO HERE IN THE UNITED STATES.AS AN AMERICAN AND A WOMAN,MOTHER,TEACHER I BELIEVE THAT THE RITUAL OF BREAT FEEDING HAS BEEN REPLACED BY WHAT IS NOW TRADITIONAL BABY FEEDING (BOTTLE).I ALSO HAVE A BIG ISSUE WITH CHILDREN BEING DIAPER CHANGED IN FRONT OF ME.NEITHER I NOR MY KIDS WANT TO SEE A CHILD WITH FECES ALL OVER HIM BEING CHANGED BY A MOTHER FIDDLING WITH A CLEANING PAD AROUND HIS PENIS.THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!"
IS this woman Serious?????????? Thats HYSTERICAL!!!!! I'm serious, I couldnt stop laughing!! Of course part of me was appauled but I think its the most idiotic thing I have read....um....ever maybe!
I REALLY dont understand the argument for people who think women shouldnt nurse their babies (in public or at all). I understand people may not want to see a boob flaling (how do you spell that?) around but I have Never seen a woman nurse in public without trying to be as modest as possible. Obviously you have your exceptions as you do with everything in life but overall most woman arent going to flash their breasts for everone to see! I could go on for a VERY long tome about the reasons I agree with Nursing but I figured I would see if any of you had ever heard ANY arguments against it that made any sense or if any of you have any personal issues with it.
OK, thanks for taking part in my rant!! Fire away!

UGhhh, why does buying and selling a house always have to be so stressfull!! We are scheduled to close on the apt building on Aug 3rd but apparently that may not be happening which means we will not be closing on the lake house on the 8th. So, for those of you who dont know, the apt building we own has had 3 apt in it for like 25 years and a TON of different owners meaning it has been sold several times. All of the sudden though the county is saying that it isnt zoned to be a multi family home it is still zoned to be a single family residence. Therefor the people buying it cannot get their financing. Hence, we cant sell it without it being Re zoned which takes 50 bucks, some paperwork and a signature but that signature takes almost 2 months to aquire. The county says that it could have been zoned correctly at one time but no one recorded it. So, my question is why is this OUR problem???? Why do we have to deal with something they have let go for 25 years????? Our realtor gave us a lawyer to contact who may be able to clear this up, for a big wad of cash, of course. He supposeldly is working on it but wont return our phone calls. I am sure he is working REALLY hard for us! Wow! I sound Really negative. I know God has a plan and I am trusting Him but its still frustrating and I need to vent or I will explode!

Sorry for the lack of blogging but summer seems to be keeping me pretty busy! This whole Pampered Chef thing, though its not moving very fast is taking alot of time that I used to spend doing things like blogging. Plus we have just purchased a lake house about an hour from here (well we close early August) so I am trying to find furnishings etc.. I cant wait to be able to get in there and decorate and then Do Nothing! Just sit on a boat and drink some beer!!! Sounds nice, doesnt it?? So when any of you come visit we can go to the lake house and stay! Anyway, I will write more soon! I am sure when fall comes so will more blogging!

What may look like an ordinary orange foam star to most is Jacks new friend (or replacment cousin)Xander. Xander goes EVERYWHERE with us. Jack takes care of him, gives him naps and baths. Makes sure that he is fed and dressed. He actually has quite a story about him. He apparently has 3 bedrooms, 2 TVs (one Snow White and one Scooby Doo), One blue bed with a pink pillow and one monster bed with a scooby pillow. I'm not sure where he is getting all of this but it sure is funny to watch him. He is very attatched to this little star. He left it at the Church property where we had a picnic on Sunday and I had to tell him a bazillion times that we would get it tomorrow but that Jesus would watch over him while he slept. The first thing he said when he woke up this morning was "Can we go get Xander now" :) Its So fun to watch his imagination grow as well as how he is dealing with his cousins moving away. I would imagine its very theraputic or something! :)
