The odds that you'll screw up as a parent are good. And just in case you're the gambling type, I've compiled a list of probabilities parents face. NOTE: Unlike the scientific data on the website Book of Odds, the odds of my stats being accurate is pretty much nil.

After I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a remark is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any manner you possibly can take away me from that service? Thanks!

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

I have got one suggestion for your web page. It seems like there are a handful of cascading stylesheet issues while opening a selection of web pages inside google chrome as well as safari. It is functioning alright in internet explorer. Possibly you can double check this.
