Recently have been told I look like Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island. I hadn't heard that in years, but that is a good place to start as to what I look like, although she had a better bod. I have three boys and have been married for 13 years. Born of a Navy family, in Hawaii, one Mom, one Dad, one sister and one brother. The eldest of three children. BS in Applied Mathematics. Consider Pensacola my home town although I moved every 2-3 years of my life growing up. Currently work in the aerospace industry in an engineering position while being a Mom. Of Celtic heritage and very proud of it.

Language Skills...

Son#3, who is FIVE, got in trouble Thursday for telling some kid in his PE class to “Keep his friggin’ hands off him”. Nice.

I said to the teacher, “Wait, he said, friggin’?”
Teacher, “Well, it was friggin’ or freakin’”
Me: “OK, I just wanted to make sure.”

What she doesn’t know is I was breathing a sigh of relief thinking, “Thank you dear God, that he did not drop the F-Bomb in PE.” This kid is going to drive me around the bend. He loves to say to his brothers, “You are an ass!” and when they tell he says, “But Mom, I meant like in the donkey”. And if any of you are wondering… the three of them have figured out that female dog has another name and they are testing the waters with me. They’re running on that hairy edge…

Good god, don't let them read british children's books. Roald Dahl in particular uses lots words that are less umm disgraceful in Britain than here. Such as ass and fag. And others.

Hey at least he knows when not to use certain words :)

heh - my comment to those types of replies was... "I don't care what you "meant" I don't want to hear that word - end of discussion!" LOL.

I say "freakin" all the time. Even in my 20's my mom would still thump me on the head if I cussed. She would do this in public. So humiliating.
