[ - ] I lost three friends because of nanny issues. One stole the nanny from me, 2nd wouldn't give me a contact of a nanny she liked but didn't need (she said: you know how hard it is to find a good nanny so I can't share just in case. She never hire her), 3rd wanted to do nanny share but refused to compromise in 1 day a week. She isn't working that day but wanted nanny for herself the entire day while I work and needed 2:30-6.... Is it me? 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

1st stole the nanny who worked for me. I figured she was an ass and cut her out. 2nd was greedy, that nanny never worked for her. Third approached me. I was reluctant but she pushed then withdrew her offer because of 4 hours 1x a week [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Friend believes in "shared care" and having family members watch your kids (doesn't want to pay for child care). Fine-her mother watches her kids one day, MIL one day and a friend a third day. She is off two days a week and she watches them then. Fine-she has family close by and is lucky. My kids-shock horror-go to daycare and have sitters. I pay through the nose. Well friend's MIL had surgery and she is now worried about MIL watching the kids. Understandable. I suggested that she can pay for a sitter. Apparently that is not what she wanted to hear. She was angry that I would even suggest that a stranger watch her kids. It's been two weeks and I haven't heard from her-HA 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Help me UB either come up with something clever to say or a way to not blow my gasket. Visiting my in-laws tonight. Large house, but they had only one spare room with a double bed. My dh and I would sleep in that room since we were the only married couple. BIL marries world's pushiest woman. Last Thanksgiving, we went out early to help prepare, were sleeping in the room w/double bed. We were out when BIL and SIL arrived, they put their stuff in the room we had been sleeping in (which had an unmade bed and my work on the desk, so Obviously occupied). Anyway, she pushed us out of the room by explaining how it was their 'bridal' room and oh so special. I moved our stuff, but am still upset about it. Well, in laws moved out of the master bedroom and to newly built suite downstairs. Guess who thinks the master bedroom should be theirs? My dh doesn't understand why this is making me so upset.

Well I wouldn't get mad but the situation does require some sarcastic commentary. "So which room is your special Bridal Suite this time?" Or you could go passive aggressive and say you feel uncomfortable staying in a room that clearly means so much to her, she really should have it being her bridal suite. [ Reply | More ]

Take the big room, if she says anything tell her very nicely and loudly so everyone can hear you, that you didn't take the other room because during your last stay she mentioned it was a special room for her.

You have to re-learn how to do things like this. I was the same way. I moved from Manhattan to the burbs when I got married and never realized how much I let myself become dependent on DH. His parents gave us both cars for our wedding present (used low mileage) and even though I had a license, I still avoided driving except when I had to, and I frequented the same gas station and grocery store every single time for years. I let him do all the bills and never paid attention when the repairmen came to the house to fix anything. When he left me for his OW I felt like I was a child all over again. Of course it was all my own fault. Take it day by day, you've got a new normal, but it will come back to you - and you'll feel so much better every time you challenge yourself even with something that seems stupid to anyone else. GL you've got this! [ Reply | More ]

No, she doesn't wake up other kids. but she wakes up 2-3x a week during the night and cries for an over an hour. Once a week or so she is up by 4:30 am. (I have her stay in her crib till 5:45- her usual wake up time). She has never not screamed for at least 10 minutes when going down for a nap or bedtime. Sometimes (at least weekly) cries up to an hour. If we try to go to her at night she will easily scream 3-4 hours before falling back to sleep. She is happy during the day [ Reply | More ]

we did it with our third child. We were too exhausted to do what we thought was "right" and just brought her to bed with us. She slept really well with us. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Wednesday Martin ("Primates of Park Avenue") sends her kids to Bank Street. There must be a story here that somebody knows. That school is very NOKD. Was she a compete shutout from the preferred schools? 21 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I have no idea, but isn't Bank Street Downtown? I think that's where she said she lived before her excursions to the UES. [ Reply | More ]

I think what is worse is she use DR on her articles and books without saying it is a doctorate in comparative lit. To me, using DR on a self help type book implies doctorate in psychology or something related. She conducted her research on Stepfamilies by listening to all her second wife friends bitch. I refuse to spend a dollar on any of her books. I feel sorry for her stepkids, whose privacy she violated. [ Reply | More ]

This, and it shows what a rag Psychology Today is. That they would let her a column without identifying her doctorate is in speaks very poorly of them. [ Reply | More ]

I'm sure she was shutout. Nobody living on the east side as she was would voluntarily choose bank street. This was an "anything but public" decision. [ Reply | More ]

Please. This is UB. She wants to throw stones at the dominant tribe of women? She should expect to receive some snark. I'm sure she was excluded and her kids were shutout because she was a horrible boor. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Dds sad to go visit their dad today. His gf always there. They barely ever see him bc of his travel….but when they do, he combines his visits with his visits with gf because she lives somewhat far away. IMO he likes being solo most of the time - no noise, stress, kids around. Then when it's "family time" he invites his gf and her dc over and it's kids/ mayhem time. I don't know why this annoys me. I guess I just wish he would spend time with his own kids. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

i do. it's bad enough for your kids that he doesn't live with you, but now they never, ever get him to themselves. not only do they have to share with his gf, they have to share with HER kids! [ Reply | More ]

Thanks - just feeling down today. SO sad they have to live like this. And this is actually why I don't really care about dating. I feel like my dds have so much to contend with - and to add into the mix someone else who isn't part of our family feels selfish on my part. So I just stay single. I'm not a martyr - I get really down about it sometimes. But I just want their life to be as simple as possible when they are with me... [ Reply | More ]

i am doing the same. i want a place for my kids that will always feel like home - that will always be safe -- and if that means not dating until they are old enough to want that for me --- then so be it. [ Reply | More ]

I really think it's the right decision. My dds can run around in their underwear, not care who sees, everything is safe for them to be themselves and figure it all out. I can just see if I had remarried already they would not feel this way….The hard thing (for me) is that I keep getting older each year and my vanity tells me I'll never find someone when the kids are older. But I won't change my mind... [ Reply | More ]
