Hi..name's TOV and I am the newest Crazy Mom checking in at MiceChat. *looks around*Nice place ya'll got here.
Things to know about me:
I work. Yes..I know some people find that evil. I have to support my child somehow though.
I let the Bug watch TV. Granted..it's mostly PBS and he's only watching it for the bright colors (he's 10 mos old), but still. I've had some people want to behead me for it. As well as for the next notable thing about myself.
I gave (and still give, actually) the Bug formula instead of boob juice. Why? I had problems BFing and well, formula isn't really the poison the Boob Nazis make it out to be, ya know? You can hurl insults about how horrible a mommy I am because I didn't BF and it'll bounce right off. Why? Because I don't care. Feeding my child formula isn't exactly a crime,people. I don't think BFing is wrong. If I could've done it, I would have. But I had such a hard time with it, it was more stressful to myself and the Bug than anything else. So I quit doing it. I'm not saying BFing is wrong..far from it. IF you can do it, have the time, patience and desire to do it..go for it. Yay for you. If not..well..come sit by me. We can throw wadded up wet paper towels at the Boob Nazis together.
I don't believe in the following: Delaying solids, extended BFing (BFing over the age of one year),not giving vaccinations and cloth diapers.
Yes..I got married when I was but a mere spritling at the age of 20. Yes..that's young. So what?
Yes..I skipped college. Big deal. Not everybody is cut out for college, and besides, if you went to the school I went to you'd have known that only a certain group of kids were actually PREPARED for college. The rest of us could've taken a long walk off a short pier as far as the administration was concerned.
Yes..I live in Texas. w00t!
Yes..I support W. *ducks*
I think that's it..for now anyway.
I'll see ya'll 'round.
