Uh, yeah, how does a daycare not know to use bcc?
Yeah, that is stunning to me. It amazes me how many people at my company do the same thing.

I’ve always thought then we you click reply all, that should prompt a pop-up that says “you are sure you want to reply all?”

Yeah... I mean there are e-mail threads at work that I understand the reply all, but in general, anytime you're hitting reply all, you need to think long and hard about it.

Anyone else have a slow eater? Mini meow takes for-fcking-ever to eat. At least twice as long as anyone else. Probably pushing three times as long.

Yep, my 12 year old is and has always been a slow eater. He just doesn’t like food, other than pizza, chicken tenders and fries, and chicken wings. He does it to outlast us at the table, so he can toss the food he doesn’t like. We caught on to this very quickly though. :lol:

The middle one for me. Absolute opposite of my oldest, who doesn’t even want to sit on his seat he’s so eager to eat and run.

The speed at which lil mac eats is inversely proportional to the time remaining until bedtime.

Our son turns 16 months tomorrow and is still stubbornly refusing to walk with regularity. I'm not overly concerned about it because I'm sure if he was in day care every day he would be. He knows how to do it he just likes crawling much more.

On the bright side, last night he did learn "cheers!" and toasting his sippy cup with us :lol:

The dilemma of being a parent.

I really don't want to buy the 2 pound tub of cereal marshmallows for lil mac, but I'm also getting tired of buying multiple boxes and eating just the cereal lucky charms that my kid won't eat.

Unless it's chicken tenders or breakfast for dinner, my 13 year old will hold out till we say OK, go do your homework or it's not going to get done.

Mine 3yo is painfully slow. We usually get him started about 5 mins before us, and he eats maybe 1/3 of his meal during dinner time. We started just saying forget it and ending dinner when we're done and leave his plate there. Dude will go back in and eat the cold food an hour or two later.

Edit: quoted wrong one but you get the point.

Why don't you just give him Cheerios for breakfast? Or something else?

Are you talking about actually just giving him a bowl of cereal marshmallows for breakfast or am I misreading that? :lol:

That is 100% how I interpreted it.

Maybe weening him off his marshmallow addiction would be a better solution?

My wife would freak if our son had lucky charms at 2, that seems pretty early to me giving them a sugary cereal? :shrug:

ok ya pricks. he occasionally eats like a handful of lucky charms as a bedtime snack and usually leaves half of the cereal behind.

Your original statement was you buying multiple boxes of lucky charms because of the marshmellow dilemma. I just put 2 and 2 together that he was eating multiple boxes of lucky charms worth of marshmellows.

Forget the all marshmallows thats crazy talk. Give him smaller bowls so there's only like 8 marshmallows and make him eat the rest of the contents before you pour more. He will learn quick.

Pff who cares, until recently mine ate a bowl of LCs every morning from the time he could feed himself with a spoon until like 2 weeks ago. He's 3... they burn it off running around like maniacs 5 mins later

I only scoffed at the multiple boxes comment. I saw mac buying 3-4 boxes at a time telling the clerk "god damn kid loves these marshmallows."

Mac, try putting sugar on the lucky charms, that should solve all issues.
