[ - ] When you host your DH's family for the holidays do you do things the way you want or the way their family does? DH and I are arguing because we are hosting his family and I don't want to do a pasta course before dinner (prime rib). We are having a ton of food and incorporating some of their family recipes but I draw the line at the pasta, there is no need for that before a big dinner. They are Italian American and every holiday needs to incorporate pasta and marinara or vodka sauce. Their sauces aren't even good. This is our first year hosting everyone. I say it is our house, our choice, or rather my choice since I am the one cooking. I don't get the weird obsession with the pasta course! 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My favorite scenes are with Helen and Noah because it so clearly reflects a lot of things I went through with my DH when I discovered his affair. I felt like I was a great mom and we did have sex and we always did things with my family - and my family ALSO told me they didn't think he was a good choice for me. But I loved him. And I had the same reaction at first to learning about his affair. I don't really understand Alison's family or that whole dynamic but I never lived that one. I did live Helen's. [ Reply | More ]

The sad thing is that if you weren't such an anti-de Blasio hypocrite, you would probably agree that cops shouldn't use excessive force. It's funny that Republicans only think federal cops shouldn't use excessive force against armed white people shooting at them. But it's okay to use it against unarmed african-americans.

[ - ] My SIL is a divorced mom who is known to have one night stands. Other than that, she's a responsible parent. Would you be comfortable with your kids spending the night at her place knowing she could bring back a strange man? They love being with their cousins and have had sleepovers at our house, but I haven't felt comfortable letting them go there. The cousins are asking though, so I need to decide. HELP! 39 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

No. Not if she brings them home when DC would be there. If she does it only when no kids are there - have at it. But not if she brings home strangers when kids are there / DC would be there. No way. No how. [ Reply | More ]

No of course not. You can ask your SIL not to have overnight guests when your kids are around. If she agrees and you find out otherwise you can invoke that as to why you have a trust issue. If she balks that's another reason to keep them at your house. Not a bad idea to show the cousins that there are homes where mom doesn't bring home bed friends. [ Reply | More ]

Please don't ask. As a single mom, I have some infrequent one night stands but not if anyone else is around. You will humiliate her by asking this. [ Reply | More ]

I don't think it's humiliating to ask "please don't have any overnight dates when my kids are at your place." There is nothing presumptuous about this in the least. And if you are a single mom and do have one night stands at all - no offense - but dealing with humiliation resulting from your behavior should be something you should be prepared for.

this is ridiculous. if she is basically responsible, she's not going to have torrid sex with the kids around. Unless she's also doing crack and out of control, she'll be fine. Btw, this issue of one night stands is also probably way overdone. Who "knows" this? If she were a guy, I bet she'd be the object of admiration rather than get a psycho label... [ Reply | More ]

She's a single adult and allowed to have sex. But I think most people agree one night stands are not really anything to be recommended. Even though it happens all the time - when you have kids it is a little icky. [ Reply | More ]

Then cracker jack - no problem. There is a dad in my town who has done prison time already for having supposedly molested a friend of their daughter's who stayed over many times. The jury came back with a conviction and he is a level 3 sex offender in town. They're still here because his family has taken the position that it never happened + he is a part owner in a family business. But after that I would never again just completely presume that everything is fine. I did have a child who slept over at that house (boy not girl) and never heard anything - but who knows.

I think she thought we were going to give this car to her younger sister who just turned 16 and she was going to get a new one. No dice. She's driven that car around for 2 years. It's got scratches and little dings everywhere. She has treated the inside like her personal storage area. She needs to keep the car she has created. It looked like new when she got it. Her sister deserves the chance not to mess hers up. Anyway we are waiting until summer for another car. I don't want to deal with a new driver with a car in the snow. [ Reply | More ]
