    It took me eight month to get a decently sized bladder after more than sic years of anuria, kegels helped a lot with it -without that good vice I would have probably needed dippers- and having a stronger pelvic floor really didn't hurt.
    Candida is a nightmare, if I get it again I really don't know what I'll do.

    HA! bebes love me too. i think it's because i have always had giant bewbies and long curly hair. i haven't actually held one in decades though. not since i babysat as a teenager!
    I make my own shoes, though.

    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    Hmm. Well, I relate to men better than women most of the time, and have never been comfortable in ruffles and ribbons. On the other hand, I love babies (and animals) and can relate to them very well. Mind you, I tend to talk to kids like they were adults as much as possible, which they seem to appreciate.

    The greatest thing about small children is the unbridled joy they show for even tiny things. Watching the world through their eyes can re-instill a lost sense of wonder.

    My daughter was firmly in the "don't want any children" category for years, and piling babies into her lap was not going to change that. But her nephews are eating away at her resolve. Here are babies who she actually has a connection to, who are undeniably cute (no, Grandma is not biased at all, *cough, cough*), and who are being raised with some discipline and are therefore not the kind you're embarrassed to be seen with in public. It's funny to watch her fortresses crumbling.

    On the other hand, if she never has kids that is also fine with me. It is her siblings who give her a hard time about it, strangely enough.

    This is what gets me through the tough days. Going for a walk and seeing my 2yo marvel at the stones stuck in the sidewalk or the bunnies/rabbits/squirrels running around. I just sit back and answer questions as I can and let them explore. I adore my own kids and love snuggling with them and sharing life with them.

    I'm not big on other peoples' kids/babies though. All the other moms always jump to hold the newest baby and I feel no such impulse. I enjoy getting out and doing active things, which require tomboy clothes. But every once in a while I do enjoy getting dressed up in a skirt/dress.

    I'm the same concerning ruffles and ribbons........ never had them, never wanted them. I don't own a dress or a pair of heels. I do wear make-up and my hair needs to have some semblance of style, but I always wear it so it will be easy to fix, and no fuss all day. My clothes are jeans and t's - shoes are hikers/runners or flip flops. I don't do pretty undies or bras --- just the basics to cover and hold things in place. Girly stuff has always confused me. I don't have a strong maternal instinc - although I do enjoy babies for a bit. I was totally content to have only one child, and sometimes wondered why I even did that!

    I'm not even thinking about being a grandmother. My son most likely won't have any as he doesn't like kids at all. And the step daughters are looking like it will not happen for them anytime soon. Youngest doesn't really want kids, and oldest isn't having any luck in the boy department. Combination of being VERY overweight (guys aren't exactly drawn to that) and having a rather boisterous personality (also not something a guy is very drawn to when combined with the weight issue). So, I'm not really expecting any grandkids........ and honestly I'm totally okay with that. I would be very happy to spend my golden years spit-free.

    I didn't care about lacy undies either, until I bought some on a whim. Discovered that hubby loves them, on me that is. LOL! So I have amazed myself by acquiring a bit of a wardrobe in that department. His Valentine's Day present is usually something lacy... He enjoys removing the wrapping.

    I feel no particular urge to cuddle other people's kids, but I do enjoy talking to them. Never mind if they're just 15 months old - figuring out what they're saying is half the fun. It's fascinating finding out what kind of little person is in there. Even very young they are so different from each other.

    This thread is cracking me up because it's just so true.

    My ex's mom used to buy all of her son's gifts to me. Yes, he was that much of a wuss. She even bought his Valentines Day gift to me every year. Just creepy. The thing is, she always bought me tons of perfume and fluffy clothes in powder blue. I hated it - both the idea that he couldn't pick a gift for me himself and the fact that neither one obviously knew me.

    My birthday is a week before Christmas, and one year he actually went out himself and got me my football team's away jersey. Then for Christmas he bought me a welder. I was thrilled! Then his mom chewed him out for buying something stupid and eveything nice that I said didn't matter.

    I used to work at an outdoor flower stand. On Valentines day sometimes we'd get the secretaries buying flowers for their bosses to give to their wives. So I'd conspire with the secretary to a) arrange some of the more awful roses because the boss would never know the difference but the wife would, and b) write a receipt for way over what I charged. Then we'd split the difference. Ha ha so evil.

    And thus the reason why we never saw eye to eye. I either ask for what I want outright or more often just get it myself.
