No but I have a terrible habbit of reading a post and responding without looking to see if someone already has :fp: .

Sorry about that :oops: .

My wife had to go to the dentists office the other week and I came along with our baby. I was waiting in the reception area and all the staff were saying how cute he is and one old lady said "oh he's cute now, but just wait until he's 5, he'll be running around going crazy. Little homewreckers is what kids are, just spread germs and break everything." :lol:

I have a feeling she doesn't know what a homewrecker actually is.
