    And, to top it all off…………….when our kids got to be adults, it turns out the “younger” sibling egged on the “older” one to result in the squabbles!!!!

    Go figure!

    Michael and Elizabeth getting verbally abused by Elly. What a shame.

    My mom never yelled. She was THE genesis of the hairy eyeball. She also was into time outs and grounding.

    I remember one grounding vividly. She, like Elly, said “You’re driving me crazy!”

    I said “Short drive.”

    No soccer practice for a week. I learnt good.

    I remember working the midnight shift, thinking that my working hours were making me too impatient with my children, and wasn’t home for fifteen minutes before I was yelling something like: “Why did you put the cat in the toilet?”

    Most people think they’re professionals before they have kids.

    Yelling takes longer, but it’s kinder than a 2x4 up side the head.

    How sad are you people? Really. Go out and contribute something to society. Get your fat selves out of the house. You all obviously need to interact with REAL people for a change. Sad empty useless lives.

    This is mostly directed to:lightenup,catlady1 (with a name like that…), and howtheduck. Losers. It’s a comic strip. Nothing more.

    I have reported the excessive repeated posts, pointless diatribes and constant use of links by some posters. You people really need outside activity.Or professional help.

    Kids are professional at making you feel like the guilty party.

    Ever since the larger families broke up into the “nuclear family” the education and experience of the grand and great grand parents is mostly lost. Lynn talks about it on her site today at

    So the education of the parent starts at zero with only occasional input from those who came before. Wouldn’t it be nice that you had to prove you can take care of children? Not just drop them out as a qualification.

    Scuttlebutt99 you are a pernicious virus here. Such ideas and language. You do fit your name and its meaning—unfounded rumor and innuendo with little veracity.
