Re: “We were happy our teen daughters were stunners — until the phone started ringing

I'm right there with you. Though I'm a bit worried I'm heading towards my daughter having the beauty and the brains, and with my luck it will just make it even worse. She'll be smart enough to not get caught breaking the rules. My daughter dances, but she recently started taking fencing. Our activity choices are like parental cognitive dissonance. While dancing is her passion, I'm thinking that fencing has a much better shot at a scholarship, and you don't hear many teenage boys saying "wow, did you see that hot fencer chickl???".

Re: “We were happy our teen daughters were stunners — until the phone started ringing

Since I have two teenage sons, I'm more worried about the predatory girls out there. And the college my older son is hoping to go to next year has a significantly higher proportion of girls. I'm tempted to attend his classes with him for the first few weeks and give all the girls the evil eye. That wouldn't be overdoing the protective mother bit, would it?

Better wish the same on your son, I'm sure it's just as bad to have boy crazy girls calling! If I remember correctly, it didn't matter how beautiful the person was, if they were taking AP classes, they didn't brush with the less intelligent folks so make sure she's in AP and I think you are safe. Then have her join all the boring clubs like French and Chess! All the nerds will love her but that's okay, they don't have wild parties and bring girls home late :)

Great post!!!

Re: “We were happy our teen daughters were stunners — until the phone started ringing

I could NOT agree more -- oh, for my girls to be sweetly shy and introspective, contemplating sentence structure or violin sonatas long into a Saturday night before snuggling in their beds with copies of Jane Austen...

But here's hoping pretty can still equal nerdy, because my girls ARE gorgeous, after all :)

Good luck with your wish for a nerdette, but I've seen all pictures of your Punky. Be prepared for the male onslaught!

Re: “We were happy our teen daughters were stunners — until the phone started ringing

Oh yes. . .I definatley get it. We have 3 boys. They were beautiful babies. Half Japanese/half Irish, all three have the best of both worlds. Large brown eyes, thick black hair, creamy skin, broad shoulders, long legs.

Please oh please oh please let them have crooked teeth and pimples. Let them emerge form College as the handsome devils they are. Let them make MBA grads swoon over them. Until then, keep the girls away.

Re: “How to get a cheap massage

There are many different types of massage that can help us with massaging. One of the most common types is Chinese moxibustion massage. It is an ancient Chinese way to good health. This is great if it is your first time as these are very relaxing.
However, we don’t have so much time and money to go to the massage centres to do regular massagings. So we can choose some massagers such as massage beds and jade mattresses to help us to relax ourselves at home. This will also be great.

Re: “Who knew pregnancy was so heavy — literally

I bet your spine veers to the right from sticking your hip out when you hold your son! It's amazing how our bodies change when we stay in the same position for too long. I sit at a computer all day and constantly have to remind myself not to hunch forward.

I do know that there are great chiropractors out there that are true healers, and that there are some bad ones that are dangerous and should not practicing. I’ve been to both, and as badly as I would love to go have an adjustment, I’m too afraid of ending up with a bad one again.

Re: “Who knew pregnancy was so heavy — literally

Very inspiring! I'm making my chiropractor appointment today. My 3.5 yo is a lot lighter than Bruiser; I don't know how you have been doing it all this time! http://jacoblawrencenewman.blogspot.com/

Re: “Who knew pregnancy was so heavy — literally

My parents love their chiropractors but I've only been once after a car accident. Unfortunately, the accident happened in Florida and while the other driver was at fault he was not required to pay for medical work. Bummer.

After 5 pregnancies and carrying countless babies since I was nine years old, my back could use a good manipulation or twenty.

Re: “Who knew pregnancy was so heavy — literally

I go to the chiropractor once a week like clockwork. I can always tell when I've missed a week too. Chirpractic care actually helps with sinuses and general health well being. I am a firm believer in chiropractic care!

Re: “Who knew pregnancy was so heavy — literally

I, personally, loved my chiropractor. I've stopped going while I'm going through my reconstruction phase, because well, I can't exactly lay on my stomach or sides right now. But as soon as I have my exchange procedure and am healed, I plan on resuming my appointments.

Re: “Who knew pregnancy was so heavy — literally

There are other options out there other then the "jump on your back to pop it" method. Look for a low impact or zero impact chiropractor if you're afraid of that popping sound, or it's just not comfortable for you. I love me some good pop it back into place, but my Dh swears by the zero impact. I can't explain how they do it, but he knows it works.

Re: “Who knew pregnancy was so heavy — literally

I've never been to one as i've never really had any reason to-but the whole pretzel-twisting description would be enough to scare me off! A massage sounds good though . . .

Re: “Who knew pregnancy was so heavy — literally

I'm so glad you had a positive Chiropractic experience. I'm a Chiropractor and I have a one year old, so I feel a sort of special connection when I'm treating moms with young ones. Good for you doing what you need to do to help yourself feel better :)

Re: “Who knew pregnancy was so heavy — literally

I went to the chiropractor once, because my mom swore by it. I will never forget the moment he cracked my neck. It was so LOUD! I thought I was paralyzed. But I did find the strength to ask him, in all seriousness, "Do you have a license to do what you just did?" :)

Re: “Who knew pregnancy was so heavy — literally

I don't know, Julia. My spine is shaped like a J. It's embarrassing. ;D

Re: “Who knew pregnancy was so heavy — literally

Every single chiropractor tells every single patient that 1 leg is shorter than the other. Also, they tell every single patient their pelvis and or head is out of alignment. Would you be surprised to know that you can't tell that from an xray? Also, it's pretty normal to have asymmetry from R to L. Unless you are more than say, a centimeter different, it's pretty normal. This really annoys the crap out of me.
