Her future husband also was a couple of years older then her, but they did marry and have two kids. I'm sure there is some truth to the boyfriend thing but its sad to see this happening.
    When did we give up veto power over our 13-14 year olds? I find that reality sad and can't understand it. If we weren't so busy trying to be our childrens' friends, we'd be much better off. If that means sitting on THEIR coattails, then so be it. You've got to BELIEVE you're the boss to BE the boss. What is the fear?? That really ticks me off!

    Yeah, my parents did that. I last saw them when I was 21 (you will note that I am now 52), and I have absolutely no regrets about divorcing myself from them and consider myself fortunate that I had the courage to break free. There's a fairly wide space between being a kid's friend and being a hardass and unfortunately there are too many people who can't seem to locate that space.

    And I wish that people would leave this girl alone.

    I don't think you have to be a hardass....just consistent. I believe in giving children breathing space, but holding the loving line without being their friend.....but that, for me, that also started in the low single digits of age.

    I don't care that much ECM. I never think one man or woman can be the sexiest person , because we all think of sexy differently. The type of thing I think is sexy, is something we cant see. Kindness, humor, very sexy. He's not bad to look at.

    LOVE him!! Last night I watched both 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike for the first time, I am such a huge Channing fan Im surprised I waited this long to see them. I would definitely say he is the sexiest man alive TO ME, if to no one else.

    OMG I just spit my water! I love you Rattus, but Steve Buscemi? I love the man and he is hilarious - so if that is sexy, then I'm on board. Looks wise - I always thought he was a bit odd looking.

    Personality always has and always will do it for me. And that aside, just look at that face - the man's a demigod.
