Arr! Broke up with me boyfriend late last year and been sailing the single waters e'er since. I've not been trying too hard, though. Been too busy to bother much with the boys. But if some handsome pirate wants to come sweep me off the deck...

now don't get me wrong.... I enjoy spending time with the lovely lass', laughing together , curled up on the couch. or haveing someone to hold as we watch the sunset. I'm just very set in my ways and very freespirited. the only time I really miss not being single is the time right before you fall asleep and there is no one to cuddle up to.

Think I'll be taking a break form the dating scene for awhile. I am also very independent and set in my ways. Although I do hope to find that special someone someday, I will enjoy the time to myself. Another round everyone?

I agree with privateer and Shelia, too set in my ways to be tied down in marriage. I honestly don't see that ever happening to me. And having kids is not for me either. When I worked at a pre-school/day care it really turned me off from that. What works for some people, doesn't for others. Having a special someone in my life isn't a problem at all, doing the whole marriage thing, that is. It's not for me. :)

Alrighty, enough of that. I need a Plunder Me Cherry margarita! Who else wants one? :D

It's the way you raise your kids that makes the difference. I've been a scouts-leader for a couple of years now, and have noticed that some kids're awesome to deal with, while others're nothing but a nuisance, big-mouthed, arrogant brats that're a waste of genes. Those that're great, are mostly of average parents and raised with a tick when they deserve it. Those that're hell in person, are mostly of overly rich parents that've been raised in one of those newly-fangled semi-pedagogically ways, the crap that goes "Punishing a kid's bad for its moral. Never punish it." and "Giving it a slight tick against the head is the same as beating the snot out of it." Those kids turn out to be spoiled, manipulative, arrogant people that think they're superiour to everybody. I can imagine that such kids can be a let-down in having kids, but at the end, they're like a tamagochi: They turn out good or bad depending on how you raise them. Another part is taking responsibility for it. I've seen kids become big, bad, sneaky, backstabbing harrassers, and the parents know 'bout it, but are blaming one year of school and don't do any effort to change it. See my point? Wether your kids are a gift from above or hell on earth entirely depends on you and your partner.

I like kids, I get along really well with them and they in turn really like me. Which is why I get bugged all the time about being a mother. The thing is I don't want to deal with a kid 24/7. That isn't for me. I was the only one who wasn't a parent when I worked at the daycare. So, I got the best night sleep, whereas the other teachers and assistants were always exhausted-lol! :D

I like kids. watching there faces light up when you teach them something is great. I'm just way to unstable to have them.

:D

wait........ that didn't sound right.

I meant financially and I have a tendency to move to other ports. I plan to be running a sailboat charter in the next two years.

Nope, it makes sense completely. As I said, what works for some people, doesn't for others. Nothing wrong with that at all. :D

Aye, you definitely have a point there.

Me next door neighbor's kid, Matt, is an only child and gets everythin' he wants. My son (same age) is the smallest of 3 and has grown up learning to share, take turns, clean-up, etc. I had to teach Matt to clean-up the toys before he leaves - he started with telling me he couldn't cause he had to go home right now. I had to teach Matt to share and take turns. His mum would actually take a toy from my son if Matt wanted it - yeah, had to teach her too.

Now, you couldn't really blame the kid, cause that is the way he was raised, he just had that "only child" syndrome. It has definitely been a learning process.

I dont know my daughter is an only child...Since she is our only one I want her to have good things. But she has to earn them. mostly keeping her room clean taking care of her dog and the rabbit. She has her own computer in her room along with her tv vcr/dvd combo. Recently she started school and the teacher said she is a really sweet kid and gets along well as well as shares well with others. But it is how we raise her to. I try to teach her that you treat others the way you want to be treated.
