I don’t quite understand Alyson’s comments. If she and Alexis don’t want to share their baby’s sex and are worried Satayana might spill it, then why tell her in the first place?! After all, if she doesn’t know, she can’t spill the beans! The story that gets me the most, however, is the one about the plastic surgeon giving plastic surgery to his daughters.

First of all, someone please correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure that doctors aren’t allowed to treat their own families (and therefore this doctor was going against the rules). And second of all, what an awful message he’s sending to his daughters! Whatever happened to showing your kids that you love them just the way they are (I realize the girls are the ones that wanted the procedures, but if the father had refused, he would be sending a message that they were beautiful just as were!)?

Also, on a somewhat funnier note, as a naturally fairly large-chested woman, I have a hard time understanding why anyone would actually want to make their breasts big (it says in the article that the girl who got the breast implants wanted big breasts). Large breasts aren’t all they’re cracked up to be! In fact, my mother, who, like me, is quite large in that area, actually had to undergo breast REDUCTION surgery several years ago because of the affects having such a large chest was having on her health (nearly chronic back pain, for one).

I understand feel self conscious if you’re an A or B cup and wanting to do something about it, but mark my words, if you go for huge breasts, you will almost certainly regret it in the end!

Alyson Hannigan should have started potty training her child long before now. I mean, why would someone put it off starting potty training until the child is almost 3?! I have a family member who has a child that will be 4 in several weeks and still isn’t potty trained! It’s quite ridiculous.

Anonymous, I totally agree with your comments on the plastic surgeon.

A.- Maybe she did. All she said was that she is still in the process of training her. She never said exactly when she began the process. And there are lots of reasons people chose to wait awhile before beginning potty training. It could even be as simple as that Satayna just wasn’t “ready” until she was a bit older. Not all children are ready to potty train at the same age.

At any rate, I’ve yet to hear of a child heading off to Kindergarten in diapers, so I don’t think late potty training is something we need to worry about. :)

Anonymous/celebrity baby lover,

There is no rule/ law or whatever that says you can’t treat a family member that anyone that I have ever heard of. My family has been treating us for years. Where did you hear such a thing? I didn’t read your whole novel, so I apologize if you said it above.

Anonymous, I don’t think you could be any more condescending and demeaning if you tried!

My guess is you don’t know much about children by many of your posts. I know you don’t have any. So maybe that has something to do with it. I hate when peole with NO experience try to tell others what’s right wrong!! Anywho…. Having five children, I can tell you that you do not want to deal with potty training a child and a newborn at the same time, if possible. It’s difficult. Also, many times the older child may regress and have accidents. So it’s surprising TO ME that she isn’t fully done and hasn’t started potty training at nights when she is almost 3. It doesn’t take long, in most cases, to potty train girls. children are ready at any age…..it’s the parents who are not. We started at 18 months with each child and had no problems.

Oh, and I know kindergartners who wore diapers to bed and still drank bottles. Some parents can’t let go. Parents don’t realize how much they affect their children.

Each of Our children began potty training at 18 months. I think often parents aren’t ready and they blame it on their children. I knew a child who was heading to first grade and drank bottles at night and wore diapers. I was so embarrassed for him.
