I think the best thing you can do is give her plenty of positive attention and form a strong bond with her while modeling good behavior in your relationship with your wife. In my experience, the girls with dads who only praised them for their looks and didn't put their A math test on the refrigerator were only slightly less fucked up than those who grew up without their dads. I have the opposite issue, btw, I just hope that my kid is an ugly duckling type who survives her middle school years relatively unscathed. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I've posted before about how I plan to be a SAHM after grad school. I usually get trolled by people saying "you need to work for a few years first. You need a back up plan." To that I say, you guys do know you can go back to school later in life right? And having a masters degree will make going back to school that much easier in terms of admission (ie having a graduate degree from a top school under your belt is a good indicator you can handle graduate school.) If DH ever dies or divorces me I can just go back to school, get my teaching certification and become a teacher. Then people say "but there's age discrimination. They won't want a 50 year old teacher." To that I say, okay so explain how having 2 years of work experience 30 years prior prevents age discrimination. What's the point of working for two years or so if I'm 1000% sure I want to SAHM and those two years are cutting into my most fertile years? Makes no sense. 48 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Why not go to the doctor every day and have full blood work done in order to ensure you're not developing any illnesses or health problems? I just don't agree with the life philosophy of doing something you don't want to do in order to prepare for disaster. Why not be cognizant that disaster is in the realm of possibility, but not orient your life around that possibility? Nowhere am I saying I'm immune to divorce of any other of life's issues. I'm just saying why live a life I don't want just so as to avoid possible disaster? [ Reply | More ]

ITA. I know plenty of girls who pretend they want a certain career and keep hush hush about the fact that they want to SAHM because apparently raising your own kids is somehow seen as anti-feminist.

Op: thanks. And so true about the hush hush stuff. I don't like that I have to pretend to want a career. So many of my friends went to law school or business school in hopes of finding a DH and they lie and say they want to work at a law firm or a consulting firm when they want more than anything to be a SAHM as soon as possible. Why can't we just admit that being a SAHM is a perfectly worthy life path? Why do we have this artificial burden to supplement it with things we don't even want? Maybe I'm just more honest than most and have a bigger problem with lying, but I absolutely hate that it's not socially acceptable to say "I want to be a SAHM after I graduate Harvard" and that I have to lie and make up a pretend career that I want. I thought feminism was supposed to increase choices, not take them away. [ Reply | More ]

Because you are not hot enough to land a TT DH. Because even if you do DHs can turn into cheaters and abusers and you must have your own income stream to keep a marriage in balance. Because people die get depressed or lose their careers. Signed SAHM who would never SAH without my financial independence [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Do you tell your boss if you're traveling on a weekend? So that they have a slight heads up that if there's bad weather or something you could potentially get stuck? Or just deal with it when it gets to that point? 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Well my job is more of a show up or not thing. My boss is fucked if I can't get there on Monday morning. So do I tell her I will be traveling an upcoming weekend or only notify her once my flight has been canceled? [ Reply | More ]

I guess tell her, but don't expect her to be much less annoyed. What do you do thst you can't work remotely? If you dont have office laptop, tell her this is a concern and ask if she can help you get a loaner from IT. Otherwise, you need to think about canceling of you expect not to make it to work next week. [ Reply | More ]

I'm a nanny. And I will use a personal day if needed. But how am I supposed to know which days in February we might have a storm. I'm not going to stop living my life. I also don't like to share personal details so don't want to mention the trip, but wonder if I should so she can start thinking about backup plans. [ Reply | More ]

If she isn't the kind of person you like to share personal details with, I wouldn't bother with a heads up. You aren't her slave! If you get stuck, tell her then. [ Reply | More ]
