Why do we need Babybells? Or WBZoo? Or Prairie Life? Calgary threads or Winnipeg threads? The list is endless if we're going to go there. I thought those were created to go to when you're part of that group to talk to people with similar interests, experiences or likemindedness (is that even a word?)

Even though I never visited the previous child free thread because I didn't feel like reading through 75 pages of posts, I did open this one up to see what was in it because...well, I'm childless...thought there might be some tips on dealing with a kid kicking me under the table after I've asked them not to. laugh Or find out if it's fair to show 100 photos of my dogs if you've shown me 100 photos of your kids. smile

I don't know, it doesn't bother me. But then again, I tend to ignore the stuff that doesn't interest me. I still haven't opened the panty liner thread, the thread about charting....or the one about Christmas. Would someone have a valid argument against the Christmas thread if they didn't celebrate it?

Because you can't get legitimate answers without someone wading in and saying 'how DARE you be mad about a child kicking you under the table! Perhaps that child recently had his leg unchained and is exploring his freedom! MY child is the exception and you would understand if you had a child!'.

But I don't want to get yelled at because I treat my dogs like my kids. frown laugh Mind you, I might have to take that statement to another thread...not a lot of dog lovers around somedays. laugh Someone will beat me with a sock monkey for making a comparison, without or with kids or dogs.

Any suggestions on the kid kicking me thing? I've got the set of friends who don't believe in discipline, I've got the set that will smack and yell at the kids, and I've got the set who don't give rat's arse. My evil stare doesn't work anymore, I'm losing my touch.

6 years old. To me that's old enough to know better. Parents say "oh, that's not nice, don't do that" in a very sugary voice.

My mom would have pulled out "The Claw"...she'd grab you in the soft spot on the back of the arm. Even at 39 she can still get me to do whatever she wants if she forms The Claw.

Sorry for the deletion of the old thread! There was some good stuff on there, but sadly there are some IRL CREEPS who clearly have no lives and thought it would be great to post stalk (among other VERY creepy, not-normal IRL things), the police were involved, and there is no more Shore username on WB. And unfortunately the original Childfree thread went with it.

Resume all discussions... and just remember, whatever you share on here is visible to EVERYONE who stumbles across WB.. That was learned the hard way.

That is all smile

Get lost lilith. Don't presume to know what I am thinking or what motivates me.

If I appeared like I was judging I WAS! And yes, I do believe I know why this thread exists but I have a feeling YOU don't know what I am talking about.

The babybells forum I think exists because its the norm; there's something about procreating that rings normal so there it is. I think maybe some childfree people might feel insignificant or something therefore I mentioned the term "fancy label".

Please do not misunderstand me, I am definately not judging the choice just the specialness of it. I also don't think people that have children are special either.

And if I take another look at your post, I think you are creating drama. I asked a question, there was input, I said okay....just conversation. But if its drama you're talking about, its your turn.

And FWIW, I mentioned lunchroom - I think its equivalent to asking for a childfree lunchroom or lounge at a workplace where there's a general population.

No, I'm not having a bad day and I pretty much know I shouldn't even be responding. Oh well.

Hi ladies I'm child-free too and would like to be part of the not-so secret club.

So far my mom seems a bit disappointed in my decision, my SIL keeps asking if I am still sure I don't want to have kids, but that's about it. I had my nieces ask once if I was going to have kids so they could have more cousins, but I told them that I take care of my dog. Seemed to work as an explanation for now.

I was taking a flight the other day and had a kicker kid behind me. It thankfully wasn't constant but I was thinking, this is karma I'm getting paid back for all the times I did this on a flight as a kid! I almost turned around to ask the kid to stop but thankfully the mom stopped her before I got up the nerve to turn around.

and yes, I like to change the topic of conversations and ramble to avoid drama.

Frick, I wish my office had a lunchroom. Be nice to get away from my desk every now and then.

At my office it's bring your kid to work day sometime soon (wasn't paying attention...didn't have a Grade 9 to borrow from anywhere)...there will be Grade 9's everywhere. I wonder if they'll want to shadow an crotchtey old admin? So many to corrupt in such a short period of time.

I just found a secret candy cupboard in my file room, it's apparently been there for a couple weeks and I had no idea. I went to retrieve some old binders, opened up the cabinet and there were bags of halloween candy, chips, nuts, jujubes...if I wasn't avoiding that stuff...I'd lock myself in my file room and slip into a sugar coma.

Hey! I'm so sad we lost the old thread because ...

Does anyone remember any of the links in there?

Specifically, there was one about being a neat aunty or something, and quite a few about ChildFree lifestyles. But I'd really, really like that aunty one. And I'm not finding it, probably because I'm not having a good day and therefore not quite thinking straight today.

I want a secret candy room (filled with Haribo gummy bears) and I want a wine vault, too. Might not be much point in having it at work, if what apparently might have went down this week might have went down (ie., I may not be working there much sooner).

F, I need wine and candy. At least if I do become suddenly unemployed (and don't get the other job I just applied for), I won't have to worry about dependents! *whew*

ugh, this is back on Facebook. But I hate all these kind of posts that go around on facebook: if you have a great sister, if you love your husband etc.

"I carried a child within my body. I have comforted a baby on my chest. I have kissed booboos, been puked, peed, & pooped on, woke up in the middle of the night to a feverish child & more. But I wouldn't have it any other way. My body isn't "magazine" perfect, but when I look in the mirror I see a Mom, and there is no greater honor or ......blessing. Make this your status if you are proud to be a MOM ♥"

I would post that, except I HAVE done all that, with the obvious exception of carrying the child in my body. I have nieces and nephews, I have much younger siblings, and I babysat a LOT as teenager. I don't think having been peed on makes my life any better. tongueold

I'm actually surprised how many people do bring their dogs to work. At Dh's office (major insurance co), they've had several people with new puppies bring them to work for the day. Floors me. I love my girls, would love to bring them here....but they'd stand guard at the door and bark their fool heads off. laugh One of DH's vendors, it's a office furniture company...everybody brings their dogs to work there. smile

Weekend is busy for us. Deciding how much wall paper is too much wall paper for the house. One wall in 4 different rooms...trendy or too much? My mom is up again visiting, have DH's and BIL's bday party on Sunday. Need to clean the house, finally mow the lawn. Need sleep badly. DH has been snoring like a demon...kicked him out of bed two nights in a row as I can't go 4 nights with no sleep. I think naps are on our agenda.

I wanna bring my kitty to work!! Hehe teeth

I dunno about you girls, but I have a cat that keeps me up at night sometimes; where's the sympathy for that?? whistleold But the advantage of the cat is I locked him in another room so I could sleep rofl

My CF weekend will consist of going out with the girls tonight after work for dinner and drinks, then sleeping in super late on Sat and Sun, and baking. Gonna make an Apple Crisp. And cook up a Ham. Maybe make some muffins or a banana loaf to take with me to work next week. And play video games. In my PJ's. Possibly clean some, but I doubt it, lol.

I spent the entire day running errands. The last (before picking up dinner) was at Rona. This poor woman ahead of me had a toddler that kept running away to go climb up the staff-only ladder and swing from the top hand rail (6 feet in the air) if she was on the ground, SCREAM when mom held her (and then run away again when mom leg go to move her cart), but would climb out of the cart if mom put her in there.

Yep, still happy to be CF. tongueold

Okay if you're eating right now - don't read this.

I just don't get WHY a person would feel the need to post about their child's bathroom results.......I read FB from my Iphone, I like reading the "news feed" section, and one of my mommy friends was posting about her child's poop!!
