Ha ha! Some news outlets are reporting that she was hospitalized with morning sickness. Others are saying that she has Hyperemesis. Big difference! I had Hyperemesis with both boys and has to be hospitalized for over a week each time. I needed iv fluids and extra vitamins because I was getting sick (not just nauseated) 7+ times a day.

Eek, I just looked that up. I'm surprised you had a second kid--that sounds miserable.

Everyone inc my dr told me that each pregnancy is different and there was no reason to think that the second pregnancy would be like the first.

I got my tubes tied after the second.

Ugh. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find black dress shoes with a little heel for a 7 year old?

I have been to every Marshall's I can drive to and looked all over the web...and finally found some at amazon.

Now let's hope they get here before christmas. <crosses fingers>

Perhaps this is a stupid question, but why does a 7-year-old need heels? She has the whole rest of her life to wear heels but only so many years to be a kid.

Thre used to be a kids shoe store on Central just west of Green Bay. They had a 2nd shop on Elm in Winnetka.V Bootery. More than Marshall's but not too pricey. Good basic nice shoes

Because she went a picked a very sophisticated dress to wear for christmas. It's black velvety on top and layers of chiffony type white fabric for the skirt; and it's longer in back than in front. Of course it's short sleeved, why they do that for winter I'll never understand, so MIL found a little faux fur cape in black to cover her shoulders.

It's just way too fancy to just wear little flats or mary janes.

So, I feel bad for this girl because this must have been a scary experience, but I think her parents are idiots.
I think you should give the parents a break. Allowing children to lean over the wall and feed the dolphins is what the attraction was all about. I'm not gonna raz the parents for not hovering over the kids in CASE something most people wouldn't even think about might happen.

I saw that on the news yesterday and thought it was actually funny. So she suffered some "puncture wounds," boo friggen hoo. I'm not about to shut the park down and euthanize the dolphins and throw the parents in prison.

Lighten up, jerks.

I can remember having heels a lot when I was little. They were only 1/2" to and 1", of course.

We're razzing the parents for making a federal case out of puncture wounds. The kid screwed up, it happens. Next time, she'll probably pay closer attention to the rules.

I thought we were razzing the parents for incompetency, horrible parenting decisions, and NOT being helicopters?

If you don't supervise your kids, you can't act surprised and blame someone else when they break the rules. The parents are the ones who broadcast this video all over and now think that children should not be allowed to feed the dolphins.

It's not funny at all that a kid got bit and was so scared (did you watch the video?). It's not the park's fault, though.

But, the kid is eight and too young to be responsible for the two feet between her hand extended with food and the same hand retracted with food. And, as smart as dolphins are purported to be, that food is just food that's two feet further than usual. It's asking a lot of children and dolphins to NOT make mistakes here.

Then I would razz them for THAT, and not for not being on guard for every potential hazard that could ever mathematically happen when they take a trip to Sea World.

You took an issue with the fact they were filming right next to them instead of keeping the camera away and be hovering right behind them.

Oh bloody hell. I have to give my dog walker his final payment tomorrow before I move and I ran out of checks, and of course my box of checks is packed and moved already. AND I don't have enough cash on me to cover it (plus I was going to give him extra because I'm too much of a slacker to remember to pick up a gift card). Waiting for him to text me back if he prefers cash or if I can mail the payment (in which case I'd include a gift card). Dammit dammit dammit, I noticed that I used my last check on rent last week... wish I'd remembered to do something about it!
