Barbie? ... Makes you think :)

Feb 09, 2015 - 5 comments

When you do a double mastectomy, if your tumor is too close to the front of your breast, you lose your nipple/areola.  
I am one of those ladies.  
My husband and I were talking the other day, and I joking told him he had his very own Barbie doll...
His reply?  "All these years, Barbie has been a breast cancer survivor, and no one knew"...
Hmmm... Who knew?  :-)

Yelling to much...

UPDATED 3/17/14

3/15/14  I have 2 kids under two...they are a handful.  I want them to be good kids, not brats.  I guess I have been going overboard, as I was told by  my husband tonight, that I am yelling at them too much.  I guess I knew I was, but was becoming immune to it.  I am with them 99% of the time, 60% of the time alone as my husband works a lot...I don't spank them, or smack them.  I just yell too much!
I used to call the lady across the street yelly mom, before she moved, because she yelled all the time...I do not want to be her!!!!!!! :(

3/17/14 I had a little time to respond to you wonderful ladies :). I do use time out, on Drake, Cami has only gone that far once...lol.  
And I do get on their level and look them in the eye to explain things.  I think I have just been a little stressed lately.  I also spoke to my husband about me feeling like he doesn't do enough to discipline them enough, leaving me to do it all.  We will see if he steps it up a little.  

Thank you for listening!!!!

HELP: Need advice for first vacation plans.

Ok, we are planning our first vacation with the twins for May.  The twins will be 10months old then.  My question is, it will be 7 hours to our destination.  We are planning on Gatlnburg.  I assume it will take longer with the twins, so maybe 8 or 9 hours?  Driving of course.

My question is, we are planning on leaving on Monday.  
Do we come back Thursday or Friday? I am torn.  I don't want the trip to be too long, but I don't want it to be to short either.  If this was before children. We would definitely come back Friday.  I just don't want it to seem like we drive drive drive, only to have to turn around and drive drive drive home (if that makes sense)

We will be renting a cabin, and my in laws will be with us.  We plan on hiking, seeing Cade's cove, and a day in Cherokee NC.

My husband and in laws say Thursday, my friend and I say friday.  

I really need your ladies advice!!!
