    Just wait girl. When she's about 16 you're gonna beg her to run into the street with scissors in her mouth. You'll see.

    Didn't you only have boys to worry about? I hear that its easier for boy parents when they're older, but harder for girl parents when they're older.

    They're all hard. Boys, girls, hermaphrodytes, troglodytes, congolese, japanese, whatever.

    For me, I'm pretty much happy I had all boys. A nightmare I just couldn't fathom is "daddy, I want you to meet Achmed/Tyrone/Alberto/Josh. I love him daddy and wanna have all his babies!"

    My little girll (21 now) and I got along pretty well fine. My guidance to her? "Don't bring anything home and don't get caught", served her well.
    Her realtions with her mother between the ages of 15 and present, however....

    It was a pocketknife that was the issue.

    Ah, that makes far more sense now. Leave it to drudge and the Internet to make this a "garden tool" issue, lol.

    And for the record, I know that I am being 100 percent silly in being overly worried about baby baj's and other children's safety now. I get it! I know it! I'm being a silly motherly mother now! Weird sh!t happens when you go through that whole carrying/birthing/recovering/etc process.

    Well, the headline Teacher Suspended For Demonstrating Pocket Knife is only slightly less absurd than the garden tool angle...

    Still think this would have been best handled in a low-key manner. Badger, you shoulda seen my Dad when my twins were born 20 yrs ago! he suddenly became the most safety conscious 62 yr old ever. My attitude toward his attitude waffled between being exasperated or humorous, knowing how hands off he'd been when I was a kid.

    Did he also say funny things that older men typically don't say? When my mom was knitting a Christening gown for baby baj, dad apparently told her that the yarn wasn't soft enough. So, he went to the yarn shop with mom to find yarn soft enough for baby baj.

    He also outta nowhere suggested that he needed to get a suit for my wedding, which was something completely unheard of for him :D

    we had a kid "accidentally" bring a little pocket knife, lied about it..had it in his sock or somewhere when searched...said he left it on the bus. Then his social worker showed up, she found it in his backpack which was thoroughly searched. Principal did nothing..which honestly, I don't agree with because of the lying and hiding. He is a 1st grader. His background is not good, so having no consequences is not a good thing.

    According to school rules, should have been suspended.

    How many days would you get suspended for allowing a sharpened pencil in school? Think how dangerous that could be.

    Is it any wonder the schools are a screwed up mess? You start with half the kids being a screwed up mess from their unstable families, then add (sometimes) idiotic whacko administrators, and...no surprise.
