I did not WANT sex for about 2 years after each baby, but I did it anyway. It was important to keep us close, and I found the more I initiated it myself the more I wanted to. It's hard to fight that biological urge to shut down sexually, but it was really important for us that I fought it. I'm not advocating being raped, just making it a big priority to make it happen. A long hot bath, pedicure, some red wine... and home dates can be fun. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I guess the difference in Sweden is that having good manners isn't focused around labels and rules. It is about making people feel welcome and accepted. I'm not sure if this is common, but it seems like all of the people that cry good manners on here are the ones who called me names or implied that I was from a lower class.

I had to go to one. It was a pain in the ass to get to, and it really wasn't a "destination wedding" because everyone was spread out at a number of different hotels/inns, and there were no organized activities beyond the rehearsal dinner and the wedding. They lived in a major city that would have been so much more convenient, even for travelers but, instead, they made it as inconvenient as possible. Everyone spent a fortune to get there, and then the wedding itself was this low key event. I would not do it again. Whoever wrote that you won't be missed is right. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] How do you handle/draw the line re other people's kids and their not-so-good behavior? Ended playdates recently with a child whose behavior was pretty bad (big time tantrums during playdate, throwing toys, etc) and started with a new child we were really excited about... new child has some behavior issues going on as well. Luck of the draw, I've got a very sweet DC who handles this all just fine... but then she'll come home and 'try on' the negative behavior. What do you do in this situation? Keep the playdates going? Look elsewhere? I'm not sure what the best thing to do is. See benefits of both. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

How do the parents respond? I give it quite a few tries trying different strategies (i.e. more or less structured activities, outside time, etc) but if it's miserable I stop doing playdates.
