    The OP didn't specify but I believe her child is....<3rd grade or something? So we are definitely talking two ends of the spectrum.

    In lower elementary -- spelling words, math facts...yep. ...

    So, a 7 year old should have no more than 70 minutes of homework after a 6 hour day at school? I think that's WAY too much, unless I'm reading your post wrong.

    OP, I believe your child is quite...

    Yep, I've had it - got it from running, and had a very hard time healing completely.

    Dansko clogs were hell on earth for me - OMG could not even walk around the store in them. So....do not assume...

    That is possible; it was relatively new at the time, but my dog had had a medial collateral ligament replaced in the same leg several years prior from an accident - so he was not able to have TPLO...

    I don't remember if my dog stayed overnight after his TTA (I think so) but it is a specialty hospital and I am pretty positive that they have overnight staff.

    But...seriously, did you never leave...

    I don't think this is bad advice, but I just wanted to comment that I did not get the impression that any of the responses were being deliberately unhelpful or had any intentions other than giving an...

    Yes after watching the video (yikes!) I would modify a lot of this even though I am semi-fit. I could easily do some of these (jumping jacks, sit ups or lunges) but pushups AND Plank AND side plank...

    Ugh horsegal...what horrible stories. :-*( I've never owned a female but our vet also kept neuters overnight and did not charge. Our vet was a friend and also told us that many owners won't keep the...

    Sometimes new blades are coated to prevent rust; you might need to clean them first. At the very least, I'd slide the blade back and forth with your fingers a couple times to get it moving and see...

    Well, I could probably do most of them, but side planks and "plank rotation" are not easy and I would caution anyone that is not able to do a regular plank to skip that for a while - or substitute...

    Well, why ask if you aren't going to listen to people's responses?

    A number of us said that nightshade (and other toxic plants) grow in most pastures, and that expecting the BO to eradicate all...

    Thread them into a string using a regular needle and thread. Hang the thread of peppers in a cool, dry place until thoroughly dry and then you can put them into a jar. I hung mine in my kitchen...

    Exactly what I was going to write. Beet pulp is very low in sugar, and actually, even with molasses added it is not very high in sugar. But, if you can get it without molasses, it would be better....

    The only time I've used my pellets under shavings is when I had a horse on stall rest - and I still wet the pellets. They expand at least 10 times as much as dry, and are still very absorbent. And...

    I don't know....that's a tough situation. I have nightshade in my own pasture (well, it is on the other side of the fenceline, but if you know anything about nightshade you know it's tenacious, so...

    And on COTH, it's more like 5 hours. Or at most, 5 days. :) If you can ask yourself whether you will care in five days - and the answer is no - time to relax. :)

    As for venting - I agree that...

    I like the TSC pellets; I like that they come in a 40lb bag and they also break down fairly quickly, even in cold weather. However, TSC won't deliver in bulk, so I'll probably switch back to Boreal...

    Yes, I agree; I wouldn't have actually minded the visitors if they were announced and not at 8am. If they had brought fresh produce they might have been excused. :)

    No, I'm pointing out that the blog (which, in my opinion, is very tongue in cheek) is saying that these rules somehow escape people who want to see new kids sometimes. (ETA, oh, same as what Frivian...

    Yes, but see, this is such a COTH answer. So mean, so bitter. No one said we weren't happy, but having kids is overwhelming, and some basic common sense about visiting and giving gifts (to the kids...

    I agree with you 100%. The tone of the article brings out the haters, and creates haters out of people who might have otherwise been indifferent.

    However, I do recall having an unending stream of...

    I think it's tongue in cheek -- yes, there is some truth in it.

    But the only place I ever hear people complain so much about children is COTH. Seriously. It's bizarre.

    And I have friends and...

    I thought this was going to be an article about a child that looked like a girl but was physiologically a boy and I thought...well, yes, that is sort of a big *loss*...
