What a great way to start off a rather timid morning! I just finished reading the link I found on Hathor the Cow Goddess about the child free movement and lingo! What a hoot! Makes me want to run out and hug my little sperm and egg omelet!

Its just human nature. We must compete. There will always be the entertaining angst of this town vs that town, this religion vs that religion, and now parents vs child free. Something to do I suppose.

Its not a new thing. I even remember when I too was a proud child free 20 something adult, and my first wedding was indeed child free! Please dont bring your uncivilized beast to terrorize the sacredness of this very expensive if not slightly white trash event. The fact of the matter is.......the marriage didnt last and either did my pompous anti child delusion.

Of course, I am now a MOO (mother obsessed with offspring) and proud of it. Change is the only constant. So what if i am diaperwhipped! My dear little nipplecruncher is light of my life :) The lingo just cracks me up!

Indeed its like the term redneck being relcaimed by country folk...or cracker by whities, or how about bitch beteen girlfriends etc etc. Reclaiming slang can be empowering (if not crude). Have you read the book Cunt? Its overboard feminism in my opinion...but the overall theme is when you reclaim looses some negativity. I love my fartling. There I did it!

So in response to Moores request for wacked out terms for the child free going with: eggrotter, extinctionhead, oldatheart & baby maverick. Have any to add? Its pretty fun.

Ive already reclaimed crotchfruit and fartling they point out in the article.."parental use of the kid-centric terms could have a positive effect: Adams speculates that "when parents appropriate the non-parents' mockery, the edge is taken off, and the word moves closer to the center of parent-child linguistic behavior."

Onward breeder warriors! Reclaim your independance from the haters.

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
