Feminism is just the notion that woman are people too. They get to choose what they want to do. Go HPY to a PhD and become a SAH, mom or not. It's a choice. Break glass ceilings with no children, it's a choice. Go HYP, big law to partner, and have 4 kids, it's a choice. Men get to choose and so do we now. And I guess people get to criticize, but I don't want them in my life. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] DS is very fond of his cousins but cousins' parents, DH's sibs, are not nice to DH: blame him for things that have nothing to do with him, exclude him, gang up on him. It's apparent that they don't like him and his feelings are hurt. I don't like them either, mostly because of how they treat DH. However, I don't want to break with them entirely at this point because DS likes his cousins. Am I wrong here? 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

About three years ago, I was at my parents house alone. While watching a movie, I fell asleep. About an hour later, I woke up to see a man covered in blood standing in the middle of the living room. I was a little freaked out to say the least. I ran out the front door trying to get away. It was then that I saw a totaled truck in the road in front of the house. Turns out he had wrecked his truck and wandered into the nearest house looking for help. Called 911, ambulance came, guy was okay. Just a concussion. [ Reply | More ]

After I lost my mom (I was like 22), I looked into communicating with spirits. I think i inadvertently opened some sort of channel because for a period of time, regardless of hwere I was (home, hotel, mom's house), I would have issues with electricity shutting off randomly. The last time, I remember suddenly being overcome with anxiety. As I was trying to figure out what was causing it, all my lights went out. At that point I said "mom, if this is you, you're scaring me, please stop.". It hasn't happened since then. Still no clue if it was her or if she help[ed me get rid of something more sinister.

this. There tend to be two types of grandparents. They rude and selfish ones - i.e. the ones who ignore the parents rules and fill kids up on sugar and say, "Hey, that's how it goes at Grandma's!" And those who are there to love and support the child and family. My MIL is the former, my mother is the latter. An example, MIL will not feed the kids all day except pudding packs with whipped cream. She won't bother putting the toddler down for a nap in spite of the fact that she begged to take the toddler all day and promised that she'd put him down for a nap. She lets the kids do whatever they want without regard for their well being. Kids come home stressed out, sleep deprived and hungry. When kids spend the day with my mother, they are fed and she lays down boundaries for behavior. They have just as much fun, if not more with my mother, because they are cared for and well rested.
