Yeah! I cannot believe how much we have in common. I am glad that no one but you really reads my blog, because then I know no one is going to flame me.

Where did the, "no appropriate behavior" come from? I used to say that to Mandy (14) when she was little and I don't remember where it came from. I also used to say, "use your words please".

I used to be so worried about making mistakes. Now that I have made so, so many mistakes and she is so, so great dispite my mistakes, I feel better.

Oh yes, I say "use your words" as well. Especially when Griffin says "uh... uh... uh..." or "that".

"No appropriate behavior" is how Griffin use to say "inappropriate behavior". The URL for inappropriate behavior was taken. Damnit.
