[ - ] Bragging is really getting out of control. So crass and people are complete not aware. New neighbor just moved in, I quickly said hello and she managed in that 1 hello sentence to drop that her daughter finished Harvard. Friends on facebook, 1 friend just published a whole post about how incredible her 16 month old daughter is - calling her witty and sarcastic. Another mom and older dc's school brags about her dd non stop. I just smile and nod but honestly it's getting out of control. People lost all sense about whats appropriate to say. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

OP: I think the reason for it is different for each person. The mom I was referring to who brags about her dd really thinks her dd is brilliant and worships her. Nothing wrong with that but constantly bragging to everyone about how amazing she is - like "only my daughter is the type to remind to put her sunscreen on, and she will wake up before school and do her homework". I mean common these are not even "brag worthy" things. It just makes a very awkward conversation. [ Reply | More ]

You can mess with people and ask where Harvard is. Then say, well, not everyone can get into University of Florida, but I'm sure Harvard is a great school. You need to say it with a strange accent so it's plausible that you really aren't from the US and have no idea what it is. (Yes, I know, I'm weird.) [ Reply | More ]

this. Social worker mom here. I just signed up a family of 4 for a 3bed apartment in public housing. For our requirements, no more than 2 kids per room, but we allow some leniency if one is a baby and the parents have a plan to move into a larger space in a year. [ Reply | More ]

I read some of the tiny house/tiny apartment websites, and with all of the mods available today, you could probably put a family of 5 in a studio. [ Reply | More ]
