There's a terrific free family shopping app named BRING that does the same as the shared note hack. The extra benefit of this is that is available on iOS as well as Droid, so the outliers in the family who don't use iPhones can also join in and add things.  There's also a Windows app that you can install so you can refer to your list easily if doing an online shop.

I'm really surprised you didn't mention Broken Heart Syndrome. Breakups have the ability to cause actual damage to the heart short term - an enlargement which puts you at risk of the normal heart functions being interrupted.

What's so achingly disappointing about this is in just November gone we were celebrating these men for breaking the toxic masculinity mould.

Guess they either hid it well, or got a hero edit they didn't deserve.

Thanks so much for this article! From the title I expected it to be derisive, and was so thrilled to see it was anything but.

This is something that's very near and dear to my heart - the outwards expression of men's modern clothing reflecting the shift in attitudes towards defining what a man is in 2019.

After watcing tonight's ep I'm 97% sure that Robot is Johnny Ruffo. The clues add up, even the somewhat gutwrenching one about how sometimes his head "has glitches."

Commenting my two cents, feel free to dismiss it!

I think it would be important to find out if its a genuine fetish or just a kink. Kink means he's into it and it's outside the generally accepted sexual proclivities. If it's a fetish, it means he's literally unable to be aroused and perform sexually without this particular set of conditions.

If you've been with him sexually okay so far it's a safe guess to assume its just a kink. You don't have to take these on as part of your relationship unless you wish toexplore after talking about it. If its a genuine fetish then ... pretty much a case of if you want to be with him in a physical relationship, you'd need to be aware.

So dealbreaker or not time. Either way have the talk and see how you both feel.

8. Kate's story about why she doesn't celebrate Christmas. Actually make that reasons 9, 10 and 11 too.

Hi - small correction to your article to do justice to what a wordsmith Alex is, as well as a fierce ninja champion. He said "I have very high aspirations but low expectations."

I'm a dad, not a mum - but I can tell you that oh my GOD BUY THE BEST THERMOMETER YOU CAN AFFORD. The type they use in clinics with just a few seconds in the outer ear are just over a hundred dollars and they are a worthwhile investment; especially in the earlier, squirmy years. Even now when we take our teenaged children to the doctor we get asked if they've been running fevers, what their temperature has been the last few days etc.

It may seem like a lot of money when you can pick up electronic thermometers for as little as $20 but those don't last and you try keeping one under the tongue of an infant for the requisite 60 seconds. I stumped up for a decent one after multiple broken cheapies and haven't looked back.

It sounds like you have a good, balanced life and that your kids aren't missing out on anything. You can always bump your savings up after you've paid off the house - great prioritising!

Let's also celebrate that Cody Fern is a West Aussie boy slaying it in Hollywood.

Could we not celebrate this man please? It seems to go against the core of what this website was founded upon.

Why not? It's nice to get good news once in awhile, after the cavalcade of horror that usually gets thrown at us via the media.

Please don't think I'm attacking you in any way with this Tracey but I'm curious and hope you don't mind my asking. If you hate the name Tony because of associations with it - which I respect - how did you end up with Anthony?

Is it a family name on his father's side? I have an Anthony in my family too and he is forever Tony to everyone so it seems as if its naturally going to happen at some point.

Don't stress about this particular scenario Kelly. They now give both the parents and kids advance warning that they'll receive an honour certificate when there's several that share the same name. Signed, the father of one of 5 Connors in his CLASSROOM alone a few years ago.

I came down here to say the same thing; it's "for all intents and purposes." If it was verbal it was transcribed incorrectly.

Anastasia like Russian royalty, Beaverhausen like... where the beaver live.

I'd guess its because its become synonymous with bullying due to the movie and recent musical reboot.

I'd say she was grateful for the rare break of being treated as a human being.
