  • Yep...I married a shitty man...the same one who pays a fortune to sit in therapy and discuss his shortfalls and works on strategies to fix them to improve our marriage.  Can't get any crappier than that. Yawn. 
  • vlagrl29 said: That's assuming he is a nice guy and would give you half the money in the house, child support, and alimony.  DH comes from a single parent home and his dad didn't pay child support for quite some time.  There were nights where MIL…
  • jensriot said: Hand. My dad too. Seriously, OP, if you're marriage is on such shakey ground then you need to work on protecting yourself. I can't imagine just rolling over and saying "oh well, I guess it's all yours now". I'm not trying to be n…
  • Andrewsgal said: Holy shit their marriage is all kinds of fucked up, the money and now according to this the house is his. WTF? "Luckily her dad is amazing with her and will gently ease her into new life without me. It will suck for all, especi…
  • I didn't even touch it because no one can be that dumb. Especially since according to her she has like 4 degrees. Just 3 degrees.   
  • vlagrl29 said: why would anyone quit their job if their marriage were on the rocks so to speak?  That just doesn't make sense.   My first husband was a project manager and had to do conference calls on his cell phone every monday morning he…
  • Andrewsgal said: Nope I caught that too and her husband didn't like her career? Now him physically marking his territory makes a lot more sense. Yuck, now this got sad. And she seems to have no clue. But...you just all day insisting the curb …

  • Andrewsgal said: How do you have a home daycare with 5 kids if your husband is on a conference call all day? Even a suit doesn't make kids screaming in the background very professional. Story doesn't add up. Ummm I didn't leave them to scre…
  • I quit my job to be home with my child and have more time for my husband.  Therefore, yes, I have no money (aside from the bit I will pocket from watching another child, starting in a few weeks).  My husband does have money.  Hence my abilty to …
  • notkateanymore said: Ok, whatever you say. That's not what you wrote the first time, but hey maybe it was an honest mistake. But, why does he wear suits at home? We really need to know that. Because when you are leading multi-million dollar…
  • notkateanymore said: =Lee=B said: notkateanymore said: Seriously OP sounds totally redneck and classless. Congrats. Yep...that's us to a T.  We park our trailer out back of our 5bed, 4bath, 3600 sq foot house...luckily our 6 c…
  • Not sure where you all came up with the idea of my husband being a city engineer.  Who would want to work for the city?  There is way more money working private and a lot more perks.  As well, there are a lot more engineers out there then civil engi…

  • NandaB said: Huh. A snobby show-offy redneck. I bet you just ooze whimsy. Or something. More whimsy than you all can handle.  But hey...we live in the house with our name in the curb out front so feel free to come on over and check us out.

  • My post said I felt guilty because the workers came back and saw my carvings in THEIR work.  I didn't expect them to come back as I expected the next set of workers for the next step of work to come on Monday.  I never said I felt any guilt that…
  •   ETA: Actually looking back at your recent comment "sucks to be them" makes me think you should feel guilty.  That is a pretty selfish attitude. Oh, but it does suck to be them...because if they really get that worked up about someone …
  • Nearing 35...so well beyond 5.  We also spend hours building sand castles at the beach (before having our daughter).  I also admit to having fun using sidewalk chalk (without child), we even got my mother-in-law in on the action then and did quite t…
  • My daughter had a blanket crocheted by her great grandmother...she never took to it.  One night when she was about 7 months old we had a babysitter and went out.  I was wearing a fancy sleeveless silky blouse.  When I came home and she woke I snuggl…
  • The workers left our name.  They didn't seem to care.  It seems when they poured the curb they used a greyish colour cement (?) then they painted the top white.  So when I carved our name it removed the white where I carved, exposing the darker conc…
  • Ahhh that fun stage.  My friend had her daughter wearing footed zip pj's backwards for a long while...because the diaper would come off.  If the pj's are a bit big then put them on backwards adn spin the feet around so they go on normal.  When she t…
  • I think we have something similar to what you mention...we have front door (double door) with a foyer area...stairs straight ahead to go up...and hallway on the left of stairs.  We have a formal diningroom and formal livingroom on either side of fro…
  • As you can imagine it is a bit overwhelming to jump back into a school year and if he was in a separation anxiety phase then it would be hard on him.  Best thing you can do is to be firm, consistent but understanding and caring.  Don't let him get i…
  • Some kids respond well by carrying a photo of them and mom in their pocket at school...if he misses you he can take it out to see you and know you are close.  Would that work for him?
  • My family kept making fun of me because I had everything ready and car seat installed very early (can't even remember how early).  Sure enough, at 31weeks I ended up on bedrest and baby was born at 35w0d.  Everyone then commented how smart I was to …
  • When rain boots are a bit big they stay on toddler feet better if you put a pair of robeez type slippers on then put the boots on. 
  • Costs for a home nanny should be a lot more than costs for home daycare.  In home daycare the providers if being paid by numerous families so her income isn't just the $125 you paid.  In this case her income will just be  what the families pays.  Ho…
  • I can sort of answer.  I have a strong background in early childhood education and am a certified teacher and I have zero interest in working outside the home and putting my daughter in daycare (while I go care for other children). I just closed…
  • My family is 21hrs away and my husbands is scattered (and distant).  We do have some good friends in town that help out.  As much as it sucks Skype is great.  My daughter loves talking to grandma via Skype...and seeing grandma's dog (as much as …
  • My 17 month old generally sleeps 7:30pm to 8:30-9:30am and does one nap (3-4hrs long).  She tends to sleep 16hrs total in 24hrs. She is non-stop (chatter and movement - in a good way) while awake. 
    in how long? Comment by =Lee=B August 2014
  • On an almost weekly basis my husband tells me "this is why we have kids in our 20's and 30's" because it is so exhausting to keep up with them!  I can't imagine doing this in another 30+ years!  That age is when you borrow the grandkids and ship the…
  • I've worked with children for a long time now.  I would mention the areas of concern in a broad manner (no self diagnosing).  Let them know you want to be proactive and ask for reports, their observations and suggestions.  I would do this because it…
  • Total out there question...but does she eat much food? Or just move it around?  Maybe she has an eating disorder and not only fixates on the details of food but over orders in order to hide the fact that she hasn't actually eaten much?  Not saying y…
  • My daughter nursed every 2hr, round the clock for the first 13months.  It stopped when I stopped bedsharing...at night she was waking because she was bumping into me and waking going 'oh, right, boob'.  Once she was in her crib she stopped waking so…
  • I've got a big sleeper too.  At 17months she sleeps 7:30pm to 8:30/9am and takes a 3-4hr nap.  I wouldn't wake her...they sleep for a reason and unlike us adults they can 'catch up' on missed sleep.   
  • Interesting thread to follow!  I'm in Canada where we as adults have never come near a gun...so when I read this article yesterday I was thinking what the heck...I knew Americans view guns very differently than us...but a 9yr old with a loaded autom…
