Pet Peeves

Toilet Paper:
I like the toilet paper to roll over and down, not under.. not sure why but just drives me crazy.  Even if I go to someones house and I use the bathroom and notice that the toilet paper is the wrong way I will correct it for them.

Eating:  Actually I have 3 that fall into this category.
1st one is someone who chews with there mouth open! UGH
2nd when someone takes a bite of food with a fork, spoon, spork and they bite down and scrape it against their teeth. The first time I hear it, I ask them politely to please stop. If they continue I warn them, I'm going to take their utensil and I will poke their eyes out, that usually quiets them down.
3rd when someone is cutting a piece of food on their plate and it makes that horrible scraping noise. Refer to #2 for the consequence.

I'm not sure if this is actually a pet peeve or a fetish.  But I have a habit of looking at everyone's feet I hate feet, they are dirty and disgusting. I have been thinking about this lately, why I have this problem, but I think it's because I hate my feet so much that I have to look at other people's feet to make sure they are as ugly as mine. Whatever makes me feel better I guess.

One sided drunk sex:
I HATE drunk sex!! If I'm drunk that's ok, but not if my boyfriend has been drinking and he gets frisky!
UGH.. nasty.. feels like I'm fighting off a  scruffy, dirty dog! All that panting with nasty alcohol breath. No thanks I'll pass. Boy I sure hope I'm not alone on this one. haha

I'll be more specific.. the "duck face".  From what I've noticed its mostly teenagers who do this. Why make this face? Really? It doesn't make you look pretty or sexy.. so whats the point?

Underwear ass:
The thugs who think they are cool and wear their jeans so low their ass is hanging out! And to top it off they put a belt on, why do you need a belt? Wonder what would happen if he had to run fast. Haha.

Teeth sucking:
When someone is finished eating and they suck the food out of their teeth.. GET SOME FLOSS

Feet draggers:
This is when people are so lazy they just can't bear to pick up their feet while walking.

A Messy Bed:
I love walking into my bedroom or my kids bedroom and seeing a nice clean made bed. If everything else in the room is a disaster the room still looks half way decent because the bed is made.

I'm sure I have more I just can't think of any right now. I have a few beers in me so I'm kind of happy and not in the mood to bitch.

Pee Pee in Paradise

I have been told many, many times not to force your toddler into potty training. My daughter is now 8, but when she was being potty trained she was in daycare full time. And my memory is for shit. But I will give them credit, from what I remember they did most of the work.
Now that I'm home with my son he's at the ripe old age of potty training. I still believe in not forcing them, so I don't push the issue. I let it be on his terms.

The reason I chose this subject is because I have a very good friend and her son is the same age as mine. He attends daycare full time. From what my friend tells me, the daycare is forcing him into potty training. I think they are pushing him so bad, he is reverting. Another thing that baffled me, the daycare is teaching the boys to stand up to pee!! Andrew is my only son, but I'm teaching him to pee sitting down.  Why would the daycare teach them standing up? I doubt they have very good aim, some of them have fingers longer than their "business" their finger will probably cover their hole, then you have a pee sprinkler going on!! UGH

I talked to my friend and I told her she needs to go the director of the daycare and lay down the law!
She told them;  You will not force my son to be potty trained, we work on it at home, and I can clearly see he is not fully ready. I will buy pull ups when I'm damn well ready too! And my son will sit down to pee until he's mastered that then he can stand up!  

Those of you with boys out there and have mastered the potty training, I have few questions for you.

1.  Did you teach him to sit down or stand up when starting?
2.  How old was he when he was completely trained?
3.  Are boys harder to teach then girls (on this issue)?

Another thing that freaks me out, when we are working on potty training, he refuses to put on underwear, so I let him be naked. He is very aware of this, and his boy parts. Then he runs to me and says:
"Look Mama, Big Weenie"!!!  EEEK..
What the hell do I do about that? Do I discourage him from his extra curricular activity? Or just let him be?
Like I said I'm new at the boy thing.. any advice of past experience will be appreciated!

Fear, is it a good emotion? What I mean is, is it a natural emotion to have in your life?
 Or is it something that needs to pushed away?

Never to have fear in your life.. Seems impossible to me. And to be honest not sure why anyone wants to take fear out of their life.

I feel fear makes you a stronger person, makes you do things that you thought you couldn’t do.  When you face that fear, what an amazing feeling of accomplishment you get.  Isn’t that what its all about? Facing our fears and challenging them?

If you had no fear in your life then there would be no challenge. And if there weren’t challenges in our lives then it would just get mundane and boring.

Think about the things we fear:
Public speaking, child birth, marriage, spiders, money problems and finally death.

All of those fears listed above are my fears that I can think of at the top of my head.
Four out of six of those I have feared and conquered.  Well, I haven’t really conquered the money problems part, I fear that problem will never go away.

Life itself is a scary challenge, but taking any emotion out of the equation would just be unnatural.
It would be like taking sadness out of our life.
We need to feel sadness, or else we wouldn’t know what happiness feels like. Right?

We were born with the emotion of fear, God gave us that emotion for a reason.

Well that’s just my opinion.
