Parenting Discussions

Last week I discovered a discussion board about parenting. The very interesting part of the board is that the users are separated geographically, with one board for parents in New York City an another board for parents in San Francisco. Evidently, plans have been made to bring on more cities in the near future.

In the meantime, it is amazing to read the different attitudes between parents on the two coasts. This is beyond mommy blogging and quite an introspective on mothering differences. And, of course, I have opinions on several of the topics, so I have made a few tentative posts to see if my thoughts are received well or will I be flamed for my opinions?

A New Beer For Women

I just heard about a new beer that is being promoted in the state of Maryland specifically for women called Chick Beer. Now how cool is that? It is supposed to be a premium light American lager, which sounds perfect for what I like in a beer. I can’t wait until it hits the grocery stores around my area, I’m anioux to give it a try because I am also told that they are going to be donating a part of their profits to charities that are out there that are helping to empower women and I’m totally down with that!

The Removal of Grease

I have always been a dirt magnet for as long as I can remember. It used to drive my mother crazy with all the clean up that required when I was around and involved. And as far as clothes go, I gave up on wearing anything white decades ago because that is just asking for trouble where I am concerned. I have ruined more clothes in my life time that anybody has a right to for goodness sake.

Since I am not what you would call a girly girl and enjoy getting my hands dirty I have had to learn how to clean myself up along with all the other messes that always seem to make where ever I go, sigh…..One thing that I have learned to try and stay away from is grease since it can be a real pain to deal with in so many areas. I love that WD-40 has come out with a No Mess Pen that you can carry in your purse or pocket. As you know trying to┬áremove grease can be tricky.

Happy Dance

The musiciansfriend.com guitar parts that I ordered earlier in the month has arrived. I can’t wait to see my daughter’s face on her birthday morning when she opens up the box that contains this wonderful gift that she has no idea that I am getting it for her at all. I am keeping this gift hidden down stairs and will wait until all the other presents are all open and done with before going down and getting it to hand directly to her at that moment.

My mother did that to me one year. I really wanted a new clock radio and was so disappointing that there was no more of the presents with my name on it contained this much wanted new piece of technology. My mother proceeded to go in the other room and came back with a wrapped present and gave it to me to open, with everyone’s attention concentrated on me. I’m glad that no one was taping that morning because I know that I must have done the craziest “happy dance” of all times, not something that I would want to be on film for people to watch and laugh at in the future. I mean really it could possibly end up on YouTube, how horrible would that be?
