[ - ] Been a very long time since I've dated. Had drinks with guy a month ago. Then we both had work trips and had another date when both were back. Date tonight. Excited but nervous. People don't really expect to go home together in third date do they? I mean, I'm not ready, so won't, but will he think this weird? First dinner date fist matters. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Hmmm.... Together 20 years. Married 12. I get excited to see him. We share household responsibility well and are realistic about who is good at what (like I'd never expect him to plan play dates, and he handles taxes). We have dates about 3-5 times a month (work near each other so the occasional nooner at a hotel - like 2X year). He is an awesome Dad. Smart. We agreed early on to fight fair. We do get in ruts though. One was bad about year 3 of marriage. Yet, overall, we divide and conquer, make time for each other and try and take things as they come. We forgive quickly - no grudges if possible. We also flirt, have fun, and don't only focus on the kids. [ Reply | More ]

No swearing. No bringing up long-past issues. No demeaning eachother, e.g. "I make more $". No fighting in front of kids or friends/family. Try not to go to bed mad, but that's easier said than done. Also, if we are annoyed with eachother and don't have sex for a week we just do if. Even if we don't want to...we do it. It somehow pops the negativity bubble. Even if comically bad. [ Reply | More ]

I have been a good friend for many years, listening to her consoling her, etc etc and i am over it. most frustrating is she gets herself into these situation by dating bad men, and we all warn her from the start. I really dont want to listen to her talk about herself anymore - she never asks about me and everything is always about her. I want to say something to her but not sure if there is a way to do this without coming off cold...possible? 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Other western powers - including America - are too enfeebled/swamped by non-western immigrants/etc. to mount a successful resistance. It makes me wonder if the nation of eastern Europe - despite their misgivings - might return voluntarily to the Russian fold as the western part of the continent sinks under its demographic changes. Hungary is already stepping in that direction. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Are you from a culture where snakes symbolize something evil? Not trying to be insensitive, just curious. Snakes are definitely a "bachelor" pet like keeping a tarantula since girls think they're icky and gross. I'd just be happy to see my son bonding with his father. Moments like that are worth having a few creepy snakes around. Maybe just say they're taking up too much space and 7 is enough. Does DS do a good job feeding and cleaning their habitat?

I agree you need to calm down your attitude, OP. You won't get DH/DS to listen to you and stop if you sound irrational about the snakes (which you kind of do). Focus on tangible reasons why the snakes are fine but this is now enough snakes for your small apartment. Also, if you project to others outside the family that you think the snake thing is awful and shameful, you increase the risk of a poor reaction. You have to kind of shrug it off, like "yeah it's a weird dude thing I guess? So anyway [change subject]." [ Reply | More ]

Sometimes he'll fall asleep at the breast around 4 pm if I'm nursing him quietly in his room but he'll wake as soon as I try to move him and then he's awake and refreshed. Anyway, he generally naps from 10:30-12:15, sometimes as late as 1pm. What time do you think I should be putting him to bed for the night? I usually keep him up later than I should because I have a 4 yo to put to bed as well and I'm usually alone at bedtime but I've been thinking I should let dd watch a show for a half hour while I put the baby to bed at a more appropriate time.

6:15 - 6:45. Yes, find something for 4 y.o. to do while you put DB down. I would try to shift nap later. I would put DB to nap at 10:30 and wake him up in 15 mins then do an afternoon nap and go to bed around 8. Sounds horrible to wake up DB from cat nap, but very quickly the AM nap dropped and DB napped at noon then eventually at 1 for a single nap during the day. We did this with DC3 so naps and bed would align with older DCs. GL. [ Reply | More ]

Move the nap later...try for 1045...work your way up to 1130-130. Then eventually you want bedtime around 7. what time is he waking for the day? [ Reply | More ]

Op: well, today was 5:55am (of course, because today I also am sick w 103 degree fever). Usually he's up around 6:30 for the day. He doesn't STTN yet though :(. I keep starting sleep training w him (which I thought I'd never do but dd was such a good sleeper I suppose it was easy to say that) but he'll get sick, or dd will, or we go on a trip, and I keep having to start over. F'ing torture for all.... [ Reply | More ]

I saw your response above. You should try to put DB down at 7 pm every night. And then try to get him to sleep until 5-7 am every am. You'd be surprised the earlier bedtime actually makes then sleep longer. Put him down every night at 7 ( while older kid watches videos) and when he wakes up, try to stretch out the waking time a bit at a time. Tough for you but you also have to go to bed early. Sorry it's a tough age. We did sleep train but also traveled a lot [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Hacked into my husband's craigslist account and there was one of those "Casual Encounter, No Strings Attached" ads for sex he posted while on the road. How would you proceed, other than kill the cocksucker in his sleep, which is where I'm leaning. Oh, and when I confronted him, he was initially mad about me looking through his computer, than offered the excuse that he was "bored" and nothing came of it. DICK. 31 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Idiot. Your're reacting when hyperemotional. Dumb thing to do. You'll likely regret doing that in 20 years time. Also fueling any story of your irrationality and craziness that he might be tempted to tell. [ Reply | More ]

Yeah it's totally not cool. The mature thing is to talk it over and ask why he'd act that way. Maybe do counseling. On the spectrum of bad behavior, it's not THAT bad if he does other things well. [ Reply | More ]
