Good one! How do you think I chew my food?

Hi Addie. Nice to 'meat' you.

No offence meant to your molars at all.

I wasn't actually commenting on your teeth, but on my lack of them !! Real ones of my own, that is. So I hope I haven't upset you ! I'd hate to get off to a bad start !!

Especially as you sound such a really nice person.

Cheers

I chew with one tooth. They don't call me snaggletooth for nothing!

My middle son one day jokingly made a remark that he was going to knock my teeth out. I told him to go ahead. They are sitting in the bathroom. He just threw up his hands and gave up. He should know he can't one up on his mother. I am the mother of very old kids. My youngest is 40 y.o. My oldest is 57. And they are all up for adoption. I have the papers all signed. I don't know how they got to be older than me. I am only 29.

Hello & welcome BT, I love the user name!

I have a very fat husband so I never have to worry about having my leftovers go bad so I guess I should be happy about that.

I always tell people that I'm up for adoption, I'm also potty trained so that's a plus!

I will have to mention the potty training. Although one was a bedwetter until ten years old. At one time one of my sons was injured in a very delicate part of his anatomy. He was having a difficult time applying the medication. No wife available, so I was elected. You never saw such a fuss. I had to constantly remind him that I used to clean that part including all the nasty stuff that he extruded from his body. "Shut up and pull your pants down!" became my standard yell for more than a week. To this day he won't even talk about his mother seeing his private parts at his age. A great subject to tease him about.

Having raised three young'uns to adulthood there are two things I have discovered:
1. By the time you figger out how to raise them, you are done raising them.
2. Another young'un can teach a kid things, such as how to ride a bicycle or potty training, much easier than adults can.

You reminded me of a quote, "Parenthood: by the time you have on-the-job training, you're unemployable."
