O.K. I watched the show this morning with the girls, but also recorded it for R to view when he comes home. I have musical rehearsal tonight until 10:30p and am just popping in to say quicky (before I run the girls to swim team, come back get dinner ready, run back to pick-up girls, come home again to drop them off and then hurry off- I will never do a musical again. Ever.) that after I view it again (I need to see it once more), I will then post my thoughts.

Suffice it to say, they edited quite a bit, but not unfairly, but rather to make it appear more equally debated.

Until then, see Jeff's summary in the comments of the previous post.

OH, boo! I missed it too. It was on at 8:30am here, and I am not a morning t.v. person (or a morning person in general) but really it completely slipped my mind. I hope I can catch it up somewhere.

From yesterdays post that would not post.

TThe two females of the opposite view than yours (and mine) would not stay home no matter how important it is. True that some mothers are single and have to work and you acknowledged that. You were very compassionate while the two (to the left of the screen) seemed bitter and arrogant. Once again, they are hell-bent on working. They feel superior doing a menial/insignificant job. You (was it you?)were correct in stating that at the end of one’s life, a person never regrets not having spent enough time at work, but rather not having spent enough time with the ones that you care about.

Oh, let’s name Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice for reasons to not stay at home and raise your children or to even have children.

Interesting that the one that stated that she "choose" the daycare for her child, then accused Christy (sp?) of not having a choice or selection of a diverse group of people that meet at the library, etc. for homeschool related activities.

Most of us years ago saw the photographs of very young children who lived in socia-list (The word of questional content!) countries, being led around in little groups/packs. We were told that they were in school or whatever it was called because both parents had to work. It really saddened me at the time and I was very grateful to live in a nation where we did not have to live like “they” did.

For parents who do not know it already. Daycares are a living hell for children. They are not a Sunday school. The children in daycare lean very fast who is the dominant personality, and there is room for only one. The type of interaction that is very undesirable is not moderated. The daycare owner/director might appear to be wonderful and maybe even the workers too, but your family and friends would think that you had lost your mind if you let the same people stay alone in your house all day with your children while you were out working, shopping, sunbathing, etc.

People do not refer to a male who does not contribute to the nurturing of his children very favorably. I had a friend who once told me that she had a father, but not a Daddy. Kind of like the distinction between house and home. So, what do you call a woman who does not contribute to the nurturing of her children? Employed and darned proud of it!

I will quit ranting for now.

Rea. Thanks for being a Mom to your children, a wife (friend, helper, companion, helpmate, and partner) rather than just a married woman to your husband.

I never saw the post here at your site giving me the date of the show you were on - just the one about the nearing "air" time. When we miss the Apprentice on Thursday - we can tap it Friday. Is there something like another "airing" of this one?! I did catch the extreme end of the show and if I was lucky enough to see you - you had darker hair than the "blog" pic?! Didn't get any of the discussion though? Aren't "we" all "stick in the muds" - (the half that missed your "show") :)

Rae, that would be peachy.

Posted by: Joyella at April 1, 2005 12:47 PM
