Don't Say I Didn't Warn You - Flashback Friday

Additions to the original post are in pink :) This is one of my hypocritical posts, so you can read this disclaimer/warning. Or not, but just don't get all offended, and don't post anything mean, because it will hurt my feelings and not get published.


Yesterday I was watching Baggage, because I am a sucker for guilty pleasure TV. Anyways, most of the time they have really weird/scary/slutty baggage. Like the lady who had slept with 115 people. Or the guy with a satanic tattoo on his chest "Its all in fun" was his excuse. But this guys baggage was admirable. He said that he is the real life 40 year old virgin. Why on earth he went on the show is beyond me, maybe he had never watched it before. He said that he was raised really well and was religious and that it was important to him to wait until he was married. She turned him down of course, because she was a whore. I still watch Baggage. It is really trashy, but its just so crazy to see what people are willing to admit to on television...

Anyways, I am sure you have heard the whole, "You wouldn't buy a car without test driving it" analogy as to why you should engage in premarital sex. This guy had the perfect response to this (not verbatim): "Which would you rather buy; an old junker that has a bunch of miles on it and engine problems, or a brand new pristine car no one has ever driven?" Actually maybe that is why she turned him down, she didn't like being compared to a run down car. But still, I really thought it was awesome!

I do not think you should have premarital sex. I think its the root of quite a few problems, and if it were somehow eliminated (along with extramarital sex and divorce-I'll allow a few exceptions) the world would be a MUCH better place. See this is where the hypocrisy starts, because I did have sex before I got married, but I married the guy so I decided that makes it okay (not really, but I am always trying to rationalize my mistakes/failures).


First of all, STDs/VD would be virtually eliminated if people only had sex with one person, ever. In a few generations I doubt anyone would have AIDS/HIV, herpes, etc. So yeah, I pretty much deserve the Nobel Peace Prize in medicine, because I found the cure to AIDS. I expect to be nominated anytime now. Still waiting...

Many fewer babies would be killed. By this I mean that abortion rates would be lower, because very few married couples (in comparison to unmarried girls) would decide that they don't want the baby. Even if you are for allowing abortions, you have to admit that the ultimate goal would be for them to be unnecessary.

The crime rate would be lower. How is that you ask? Because children raised in two parent households have a lower crime rate. Along these same lines, the poverty rate would probably drop significantly because a majority of impoverished households are single parent households.

On a personal note, a reason for not having sex before you are married is that you might end up with someone that is hurt by the fact that their first time was not your first time. Not everyone is an obsessive & jealous person like me, but I certainly can't be the only one out there.

But what if you don't test drive the car, and it turns out it doesn't run well (by this I mean the one person you are ever going to have sex with sucks in case you are not good at metaphors)? Guess what? You will never know. Without something to compare it to, you just can't tell. Unless it won't start, but they make pills for that ;) . I mean if all you ever drove was a 25 year old car with 88 horsepower, you might be able to assume that the Ferrari you see drive by is way better to drive, but unless you drive it, you don't really know! Or if all you ever ate was broccoli, and you never had ice cream, you wouldn't know that comparatively broccoli is horrible. Dial-up internet was fine until you tried high speed right?

So as you can see, pre and extra marital sex (along with divorce) pretty much ruin the whole world.

Tomorrow (or the next day) - the second in my series of hypocritical posts! Or rather next week. This is Flashback FRIDAY!

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
