    Love it!


    My parents would have washed my mouth out with soap for saying this.

    Their belief would be, "the moment you think you are better than someone else is the moment you definitely aren't." But they are *extremely* humble and think it's pointless to play these kinds of games.

    deacongirl,

    Your humility poke was apt!

    My parents and brother, although all being gifted, squirm when I bring up this forum or some book I read on giftedness. They may have raised gifted children, but talking about it in depth makes them uncomfortable (it's an unfair thing, isn't it?)

    I can't claim the humility they have, although I do try.

    I will continue to defend the point that I, and many of the posters on this thread were not being intentionally insensitive, but I do so, knowing full well, that my family would never have spoken that comment even amongst themselves. wink

    Sometimes, I like not being censored (even if the reasons are valid).

    As Iucounu says, continuing on a course of action with known consequences = intent to cause those consequences.

    Could we please, please just let this thread DIE?

    That would be DD5mo. Nursing is _always_ secondary to seeing what's going on around.

    At 1 day old, she passed her hearing test in less than 2 mins. Both of her ears passed at the same time, and the technician mentioned most newborns could do that in 20 mins. At that time, I knew I was in trouble.

    I'm a bit late on this, but I think this thread has run its course, so I'm locking it. Please try to stay on topic, as I will have to delete posts which veer off the original point of the thread.

    Please send me a private message if you have any questions or comments.
