Holy balls, they already had 4 kids, including a set of twins. I feel sorry for the oldest.
Crazy. And no fertility drugs! I can't imagine it. Twins would be difficult. Quints? Shoot me.

Heck, the Iowa couple who had a toddler when they got pregnant with SEVEN babies, shortly afterward, the mom said she wasn't opposed to having one more, so the toddler would have a sibling who WASN'T one of the septuplets. Dad ixnayed that right away in that interview. Shut it DOWN.
Ladies, your uterus isn't a clown car.
Jeez. Yeah, you've already not done that kid any favors. Throwing more babies into it is not the answer.

Bought up every bottle i could to last me the year.

I agree. Shoot me. And the mom of the septuplets in Iowa took only the most minimal amount of help she absolutely needed. By all accounts, she's extremely organized, type A, and a total control nut. You'd kind of have to be in order to keep things under control in a household with eight kids under 3!

Oh, so true. Drives me nuts. My favorite outburst is "f@#king idiots." I mostly watch HH Intl. Americans whine that there is no open concept or rooms are small, which is the way it is in Europe, especially on a small budget in dollars. Euros would seem like less.
And they always prioritize entertaining in both shows.
There are lots of houses around here about 1000 sq.ft. that people have raised 5 or 6 kids in and they turned out ok.
They must tell them to complain about most everything. They're my favorite "yell at the tv" shows.
One HH went into an unfinished and kind of scary basement (sort of like mine) and carried on saying she couldn't go down there and do laundry.
I could'nt believe my dad likes that show....Wife and i love the one's with the 26 year old couple...with a budget of $1.5 million...lol.....Saw one in Europe, where the bathroom was on the roof....

wow. I do know a few people who need handicapped parking but don't seem to need it on the surface. While I HATE people who use the spots when they shouldn't, I"d not confront someone over it.
I have. Mom on her cell with baby in hand and I had to stop and ask her what her handicap was (she did have a decal though). She blubbered about saying nothing and I casually stated she hadn't answered my question. She confessed in a hurry it was her mom's but she was only running into Best Buy "for a minute."
Later in the store (much more than a minute), she passes me by and literally screams, "I'm leaving now!" I scream back, "The real handicapped people thank you."

I would've given her leeway if she had looked/acted even a bit remoresful but hey---socipaths walk among us, as many as 1 out of every 25 people who feel no guilt over their actions.

I would never destroy property though. I like to push in side mirrors. That's my vigilante justice. I feel better and I didnt destroy anything.

There is no grain used in cider.
her post immediately followed a post that mentioned both woodchuck and redd's.

Woodchuck is cider.
Redd's is an apple flavored ale

Speaking of side mirrors, when Chris was 2 and I was 26 I had one, for me. Someone who thought I didn't "look disabled" thought it was amusing (or justice) to break one of my side mirrors. It's better now, but people still look at me sideways because it's not obvious...no wheel chair, apparently. I refuse to answer anyone's questions if they demand an answer.

My opinion is that unless proven otherwise I have every right to use it to park wherever I like for as long as I like. If someone doubts my veracity, call a damn cop. I have a card in my wallet with my name that matches the placard number. I have been asked for it twice leaving a city parking lot. Not so much any other time, and those were both official city employees doing their job. If you park in a city lot there is no fee.

I don't care what anyone thinks. I have more issues than I want to think about it. My entire team of doctors (I have six specialists that keep me alive) thinks I need this, the state agrees with me. Who the FU(K does any person who doesn't know me AT ALL think they are to demand proof? Call a cop. I'll wait.

Not directed at you personally, but when someone has asked me what my disability is (are, they are multiple) my response has always been some version of GFY my medical information is private. OTOH I know someone who uses her mom's thing like the person you are describing. Or at least did. I haven't seen her in 15 years, but I have no reason to think she would have stopped on her own.

Nick is loving Pumpking Ale (I think by Southern Tier). If you love hoppy beers and pumpkin stuff, he says it's the only good pumpkin-flavored beer out there. (He loves p umpkin stuff but is very picky.)

I was in the car with a friend who still had her deceased mother's placard. I told her not to use it and felt embarrassed about it. Apparently, someone decided we didn't look disabled (we didn't) and called the cops. She tried telling the cop she was her mother but somehow he called it in and got mom's DOB...busted. Taught her a lesson and cost her a lot of money. Now she has a temp one for her knees and won't even use it unless they're really hurting her.

Let me preface by saying, I've never parked in handicapped spot. I have no intention to ever do so. In fact, my MIL, who has 2 handicapped placards, tried to get me to use one of them so I could park next to her at the hospital instead of driving to the far end of the lot when we were visiting her newborn grandchild. I declined and drove to the far end of the lot.

That being said, I am 100% on team Mimi. I don't care if I'm doing something wrong or if you've incorrectly assumed I'm doing something wrong. If I don't know you, am not doing something that directly affects you, and you have no authority over me...FU. I don't owe you shit. Take your chances and call a cop.

The nerve that Chel has to question someone with a placard that just does not "look" handicapped to her is utterly astounding.

Eh, my mom couldn't even tell our baby pictures apart and there was only 2 of us, 5 years apart. I thought it was so easy. My sister had that super-fine sticky-uppy baby hair and I didn't. Plus, she had pacifiers and I didn't.
