She's nearly 16 so not exactly a child, just the nature of the sport. But teenage girls like her are in love with their horses. Unfortunately, she's aged out of being able to compete on him. USEF rules. It would be a tragic waste of money and costly training to turn a well-trained pony into a "pet" ... plus costs over 1K a month to board. She could keep him and never compete again, or let another young person take advantage of his training while she can move on to a horse.

I have experience here. My oldest went to Princeton and was a recruited athlete. He went in pre-med and I'll just have to be honest. He had very good grades in HS - but he was no competition for the ultra-competitive top minds that were his peers. He had his first C's and even D's on exams that he'd ever had, and it completely threw him. We managed to keep him on a keel and stay in school, but he was the most stressed out and depressed that we ever saw him. He ultimately chose another major path and did fine - meaning he graduated - and he's working now in a non-big finance firm ... but yes, he got chewed up and spit out. It could be different for your kid depending on their goals. Mine just happened to choose one where you run with the bulls. [ Reply | More ]

You're technically supposed to go for 3 days and if you are not selected for a case during those 3 days, you get your papers and you don't have to serve for 6 years, but my group only had to come for one day before they gave us our papers.

OP here: I know she should be a kid but all I read about is how even straight A students with numerous ECs aren't getting into good colleges. She doesn't really have any ECs. [ Reply | More ]

You could take away grades aren’t the deciding factor. An interesting good person wins. [ Reply | More ]

Grades aren't the deciding factor for college acceptances? Since when? [ Reply | More ]

You can’t possibly believe it’s by the numbers. There are enough “perfect” numbers to fill the top 20 twice over. [ Reply | More ]

HS is a transitional year. My DD was a straight A student throughout MS but she dipped in 9th grade--still good, but a mix of As and Bs. In 10th grade, she isn't straight As, but is better than in 9th. [ Reply | More ]

I've been using the Vasanti Brighten Up scrub and my skin feels AMAZING. Got a sample in Birchbox and then bought full size from Costco. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] This afternoon Husband texted me that he "stopped to have a beer" on his way home. A few minutes later, "what's for dinner?". Meanwhile I work from home, this rain has cancelled DS's after school sport so I'm here juggling work emails and a bored, disappointed kid. But no, you have your beer. All I did was reply he should come home and be helpful and now I'm an evil bitch who isn't on his side. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

What? He went out for a beer and you're upset and think he needs to help you? [ Reply | More ]

I think when you tell your partner that you are having a rough day he should maybe come home and help out instead of stopping to socialize. [ Reply | More ]

Your day sounds slightly frustrating, but not OTT. How could he possibly know that your kid is bored and disappointed? Jeez. Tell him you guys are ordering in tonight and move on. [ Reply | More ]

Did you tell him you were having a rough day before he texted about having a beer? If so, you do not mention that. [ Reply | More ]

I can totally relate. My DH works late hours pretty regularly (relax, UB, he's not having an affair), so I eat dinner alone Mon-Thu (no DCs yet) and in general try to keep myself productive until he gets home, usually around 10pm. Like you, I work from home so work just kind of slides into evenings but I don't mind because I figure he's doing the same. Every now and then he'll mention going out for drinks with colleagues and for some reason it makes me feel so betrayed. Not because I don't want him to go out with them- he should absolutely go enjoy himself, just that it seems disingenuous to act like you were working until 11 when really you were out drinking while I was home waiting for you so I could go to sleep.

I'd be frustrated too. I'd ask him to grab something or hurry home to help make said dinner. [ Reply | More ]

I also work from home and am so grateful to be able to do that. My husband is mia 90 percent of the time but because I work from home I avoid the commute the politics and a lot of the stress from being in the office so it is fine. You honestly sound like a snowflake. I would have your husband get takeout but I can’t believe you can flourish in the world we have today. [ Reply | More ]

Be careful. BTDT. Decide if you want to be right, or if you want to be married. Because when a wife gets pissy like this, regardless of whether she's justified or not, 1 beer turns into 2 turns into 3, and they have enough time to keep company with other people who aren't sniping at them. It may not be fair, but this doesn't mean that it's not true. Husband hunters count on wives like you to unwittingly help them. [ Reply | More ]
