Pammie, thank you. You are very obviously not the kind of person I am referring to, and I hope that we can help you with the "adult" Disney experience.

I doubt it's a reflection of anything other than temporary frustration, and shouldn't be taken as "the scariest thing you can imagine."
Everybody gets fed up in every profession. I am sure that geriatrics personnel often find the habits of old people irritating.

Hey- I am back!

Just got back from a week in Mexico at a CHILD FREE all inclusive and it was HEAVEN!!!! DH and I cringed when we got to the airport and there were cranky kids all over the place Reality check.

I see you are all behaving just as I would Tiff- I see the job is going well Thanks for the little tid bit of info BTW

Hi to some of my peeps with kids- YOU know who you are! If not- Tinker and Alesia Tinker- I love the was you describe Mr Wes 70 yr old in a 3 yr old body- he is such a sweetie.

Anna- all I can say is- my partial hyster was the best thing I have ever done!! (Ok besides my lipo) But, I feel so free!!! My tummy is flat, no periods- it has been nothing but positive!!!!!

And Welcome to the new CF people I may have missed.

I am looking forward to using the DDP our next trip for the 2TS restaurants. Hoping the few we are chosing this time will not have too many kids. With the exception of the Cali Grill.

Welcome back Madd!! Glad you had a great trip, a childfree, all inclusive resort does sound like heaven Before you know it you will be back in the sun at Disney.

Cheryl, wishing you and your DH luck on the job interviews and a possible move.

Tiffany, kudos to you for even working with children especially the products of the breeders that feel their children are "entitled" to everything and leave the parenting up to the school system I get the pleasure of working next to some of these kids just entering the work force and one word to describe them is USELESS.

Anyhow, hope y'all had a great weekend and may the week ahead be a breeze.

LOL, by the sounds of all the horns honking, fireworks and people yelling outside, tommorow will probably be a quiet day. It was a great game and to be honest when the US tied it up I was sure they were going to win it. It's probably a good thing Canada did win cause there would have been some awful rioting in the streets of Vancouver if they hadn't

It was a GREAT game and could have gone either way. Glad a fellow diser gets to celebrate .
The ugly truth about parents- we love our kids unconditionally, we just don't like them all the time. Sometimes the not liking them can go on for DAYS on end. Any parent who is not willing to admit this is either a liar or heavily medicated

Anyone who glamorizes parenthood as the most wonderful, fantastic problem-free experience one could ever imagine is either full of crap or only five minutes into parenthood.
I wish more people with children had this same attitude. I have had people get almost angry with me for being CF. And I mean people in real life not just on internet communities. I agree with HockeyKat saying it is almost never well received when you say you don't like children. The only thing that seems to make people more uppset is if when questioned about beliefs I say I'm an atheist.

^I have the but WHY don't you want kids problem a lot in real life (actually probably way more than on message boards). Then I get the ever popular patronizing oh, but honey, you'll change your mind.

Although, once people get to know me they usually shut up about it... wonder what that says about me?

yup those are the two biggies in DH and I's life too...luckily my MIL finally laid off about the kids thing. Although I know one of the reason's one of my best girlfriend's husband doesn't like us is because we aren't having kids...he's one of those that just can't understand that concept at all.

JeanKeri -- Unfortunately I think you are in the minority (which in this case is a good thing). Most people I know never, ever have anything to say about their little darlings except how special they are & how happy they are, blah, blah, blah...

Ahhh.... Monday! Can you think of any more craptastic a word or day of the week? I gotta go get some coffee. We have crazy winds & I didn't sleep much because of it. What a loony winter this has been.

Happy March Everyone!!
