Hey Anonymous

Ya you! The one who felt such a strong desire to leave a nasty comment on my last blog but didn't even have the nerve to sign it. No worries. That why we have to LOVE the joys of internet technology. I'm about 99.9% sure I know who you are. See there's a few things I love about my blog. 1st it tracks my visitors and tells me where they are at and what the date time is of their visit. 2nd your comment came with a time stamp. 3rd I don't get very many visitors. So next time you feel the need to insert your 2 cents in such a negative way how about actually taking credit for your comment instead of "hiding".

So onto the good stuff. I think I'm going to break it down into 2 parts.

The beginning of your comments says "that is absolutely child abuse. literally babies bodies cannot handle that kind of strain on their joints and this child will have problems". To begin with I respect your opinion that you feel it's child abuse although as I stated in my previous blog I disagree with it. We can all have our own opinions though right?? As for can the baby take it? Hmmm I don't know. I know I don't have a medical degree and I'm fairly certain you don't either so it's not a judgement call either one of us can make. I also stated that it seems likely that the guy has some sort of training with this stuff and with that I imagine they know how to keep things safe. I guess the good part of me would like to think that a parent would not do something like that unless they were knowledgable in what they were doing.

Now the 2nd part of your comment. "and to think it's "OK" to have your child break his or her skull, then you have no hope and i feel sorry for your children."

Taking a deep breath here..........

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?? You insinuate not only that I may intentionally hurt my children but that I could care less if they are. Maybe you should have actually read the blog completely before jumping to conclusions but then....thats how you are isn't it? No where in what I wrote did I say it was "ok" to break a childs skull. Actually, it clearly states that we tripped and fell. Something that could happen to ANYONE....the reason I used it as an example. And that thankfully it was prior to when hers fused so it was a non-issue. Oh ya, just to clarify....those were actually her pediatricians words.

So maybe next time before you feel the need to become the almighty and pass judgement on someone else about how they feel for their kids take a step back and don't bother. I don't need nor want your sympathy and my children certainly don't either.

*for some reason i couldnt post this on your last blog...

At first I was like, "Uh... oh no he's not", but after watching it the whole way through, I'd say the biggest thing is it probably went on for way too long. I would never do that with Emery, but like you said... it looks like he had some kind of acrobatic training, and the baby seemed to thoroughly enjoy it (not that everything children enjoy is necessarily good for them). I think if the baby were in any pain or detriment, viewers would have definitely been able to see. The baby even seemed to cooperate with him sometimes, like it was an act.

Never would do it with my kid, but I'm not going to go so far as to call child abuse. I don't necessarily think it's the best thing in the world to do to a baby... but I don't think the baby was harmed either. Couldn't help but laugh at some points because it looked so abnormal yet the baby seemed to be loving it anyway.
