[ - ] Anyone want to play armchair psychologist for my mother? Just had a weird conversation with her and trying to understand. She repeatedly states that she has no interest in her live-in boyfriend's intimate life. She'll say, "Nolan's daughter lives 15min away from us, but she only visits once or twice per year. I don't ask him why. I don't need to know about those things." She will bring this up all the time, which to me states that she is interested? I don't understand. FWIW, I haven't seen my mother in 6 years, so I am not sure if this is related. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Forget the SAHM/WOHM debate - the moms I'm most jealous of are the ones who have involved local grandparents. Ours are all hundreds of miles away and only see kids a few times a year. I'd give anything for the grandpa who takes the kid to a museum every weekend, or the grandma who picks up from school once a week or has everyone for Sunday dinner.

A lot of people have half siblings that were not the result of whoring around. It also sounds like whoever you are speaking about has gotten over it, and decided to embrace her half sibling like true family, which is probably the best outcome. Why should she ostracize her half sibling - it certainly wasn't the fault of either of them. [ Reply | More ]

Rookie mistake. Always have an exit plan. Let them know at the beginning of the playdate that you have to wrap I it up by X time bc you have appointment/grandma visit/nap time/activity. I actually used to plan playdates 2-3 hours before I had something going on so I didn't have to lie. At that age, the kids can't do much more than 2-3 hours anyway. [ Reply | More ]
