Ha! I definitely agree it's time for this thread to die a quiet death... although certainly menstruation and pregnancy aren't prerequisite to unreasonableness

Now, at their present ages, I can send DS1 (10.5 yo) to go read in his room, and put my other two in their beds (5.5 yo and 4.5 yo) and know that they will stay in them while I nap in the room across the hall from them. I am a light sleeper and the sound of them opening the bottom half of their Dutch door rouses me.

They know what they are supposed to do and would tell on each other if they didn't. Call it dangerous and irresponsible all you want. It doesn't change their personalities or level of reliability that they have been raised to meet.

Of course, now I just have this mental image of people going around asking everyone "Was that meant to be offensive?" like little socially lost puppies, which is I'm sure not what you meant at all but very amusing in my head.
Yep, not what I meant. I meant people need to ask to make sure they understand what the other person is saying instead of assuming. As you know, it can be hard to interpret what someone means when typing. I've asked many times for clarification to make sure I am understanding where they are coming from.

Yes, it is what *I* am able to do and *my*priorities hence the winking smilie face. My priorities ARE a certain way. That doesn't mean someone else's priorities that are different are wrong. It means those are their priorities and guess what? We can all have different priorities! And no, it doesn't imply that anyone is wrong.
No, I never typed "napping is a matter or priorities," as you keep quoting. Not to be snarky, but you can't really quote something someone said like that, if they not only didn't say it that way, but didn't say it at all. I typed your statement, where you said it's a matter of priorities. And I said why mamas take offense to that statement. I then gave sleep as an example, another of your points. Should I have worded it better, or should you have asked for clarification? That seems to be what we're on now lol.
