That being said, we only had the one kid and I can't imagine what it would be like with more than that.

My bffs parents had sex when their 6 year old daughter was to "sleeping" in the same bed. So maybe it worked for those two too?
I'd divorce her because she sounds like a drag. I bet she's not fun at parties either.
Yep, the husband was forced by that witch to become a vegan jew; no chance he chose because he wanted to be with her. Yep she's so outrageously anti-Halloween that in the same blog you were referencing she posted pics of one of the pumpkins her husband was carving up with the kids (and mentioned she couldn't join in this year due to the hand injury), joked about her Halloween costume of wearing jeans ("Mayim's gone crazy"), and about the Halloween music they were listening to as she cooked the carved pumpkin innards ("Monster Mash" and "Thriller" were mentioned). Wow, she really hates Halloween.

Yeah, she posted a one-sided Fox news worthy take of the Israeli bombardment of the West Bank. You got that one right.
I'm throwing my hands up here; I like her but not nearly enough to fight like this. So have at it.
Who was the first person to say, "See that chicken there? I'm gonna eat the next thing that comes outta its bum"?
I actually find her husband to be super cute. He's not my normal type but I think he is cute!
I don't hate her or love her, but she strikes me as one of those people who has to have everything their way and isn't open to much compromise. It's not so much that she forced her husband into changing his religion or diet as he has his own free will. But I do think a lot of couples succumb to this - one person wants to live one way and the other person follows along with it because they believe they love the person and figure it's not a big deal, it's something they can live with. Eventually, it becomes draining on the whole relationship and I think it can be a recipe for disaster. One person turns into an insufferable controller and the other turns into a doormat.
As for her kids celebrating Purim, fair enough. But I don't think conning your kids out of a few pieces of candy for money is the best idea I've ever heard. Now that I've read the Halloween entry it's even more grating to me. They don't do trick or treating, fine. But, when you're the one of the few kids looking out the window at all the other kids having fun, eventually it's going to suck. Then she says the kids don't like scary things - well, probably because you're turning modern day Halloween celebrations into something negative and creepy. It sounds like they've got mom's take on Halloween, not their own.
edit - the commenters at that blog!
Lose! So all that nasty corn-syrup-and-food-coloring candy isn't good enough for your precious snowflake, but it's perfectly fine for the less fortunate children of Afghanistan! WTF kind of message is that sending your kids?Apryl Lynn Kane ∑ Owner at Elite Fleet Cleaning Services, LLC.See, as vegans who trick or treat, I had the same idea, but then we found out that at my husband's law firm, there's a woman who collects candy to send to the troops in Afghanistan. They then distribute the candy to the children of Afghanistan. I thought that was so fantastic and my daughter got to give to less fortunate children. Win!

I've been reading her blog at Kveller on and off for a while, and I can't help but to like her. She's funny and smart and while attachment parenting gives me the creeps, it's sort of interesting to read about. I skipped the entry on Israel, because I want to continue liking her. When it comes to the divorce, my guess would be that she initiated it. Who wants to live with a totally emasculated man? Secondly, she speaks suspiciously warmly of her "Fancy Assistant Brandon", who goes with her to events instead of her husband. But maybe I'm just a gossipy fishwife and it's all innocent.

I also read her blogs on kveller and I like the way she writes... but very often she sounds like one of those people that think they are right no matter what and if anybody does things differently, then they are obviously wrong. She doesn't explain attachment parenting, for example, she preaches it. And it's the same with those orthodox jewish rules: it would be fine if she just told "This is what I do", but her writings always sound a bit more like: "This is what I, the person who is absolutely right, do, and for this reason I am better than you".
That said, I was a bit sad that they divorced, mainly because of their children, but also because he sounds like a sweet man who changed a lot to be with her.
(That said, I am not sure being a mormon was any more fun, before he converted).
after i read this thread, i went to her blog as well, and i also read the israel-post... i had to exit her blog after that. if you read through the comments - most of her readers didn't like the one-sidedness either.
the candy story is fucking ridiculous.
