[ - ] Last night I was at dinner with two friends, also mothers. We were talking about things we cook, meal planning, what kids eat etc. During the conversation, both revealed that their husbands would a.) refuse to accept soup/salad as a meal (a common meal in my home) and b.) refuse to accept eating leftovers for dinner. Your response to this? I thought everyone eats these things and was kind of shocked! 23 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

three grown women sitting around talking about meal planning over dinner. what a colossal waste of brain power. a dh "refusing to accept" a dinner i made. i thank god my marriage doesn't work that way. but none of that matters. your life is your life. their lives are their lives. just because you can't relate to their life, don't judge. just let it go.

Op: Ita, my husband is so glad for anything he does not cook himself. Perhaps we are not as well off as they are? I don't really know. Also, I work and they don't...so maybe the expectations for dinner are higher? When I was home with kids and working pt, we still ate leftovers! [ Reply | More ]

My DH won't eat anything I cook. He makes himself a sandwich or a bowl of cereal. His mom was a nazi about dinner and family meals growing up and used to punish the kids by making them sit at the dinner table for hours at a time. He gets anxious at dinner hour and just makes something and goes somewhere else. We're used to it. He just doesn't like eating formal dinner at a table. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] We are going to a party celebrating the graduation (master's degree) of a dear friend's daughter. The daughter is in her 20s, and we don't know her well, but the parents are important to us (not sure it matters, but we are between her and her parents, in terms of age). I don't know what to get her! I'm leaning towards a restaurant gift certificate? Dh says a pen or desk accessory is not 'her'. Any better ideas? Tyia 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It is nice when they play together but it takes a good 2.5 yrs before the younger is ready for that. And then it's just about 15-20 min of nice play before there are demands for something or other.

Are you in NYC? If so, I would recommend going to the frye store. I'll admit, I have two pairs of boots and one pair of ballet slippers. The boots are my normal size -- 6.5, both high boots and low (booties). The ballet slippers I bought in 6.5 too and they stretched out so much that I could wear them (they would fall off my feet while walking). My feet are on the narrow to normal side if that helps.
