My fav thing with our family is the dynamics between the boys. the oldest 2 were best buds from the time they were toddler until a year or two ago. now the oldest has more grown up interests and middle and youngest are having totally in cahoots most days. And then there are days like now when all three plus 2 more friends are in the basement howling with laughter playing Wii together. Love it [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] So I'm following up from yesterday. I'm the mom who had the affair a year 1/2 ago. Husband and I talked last night. Very emotional but I kept stressing that it was over and it wasn't about sex, but about emotional disconnect that we were having. We were both calm, thank God. I thought we got somewhere, but he still said he needed to think about giving me another chance. I told him how much I missed him and wanted him back but I wouldn't push him because he said he needs his time but he misses his life. As I was leaving to go sleep downstairs, he grabbed me, we hugged, cried, kissed and one thing led to another...yada ,yada, yada. Anyway, not that I expected everything to be fixed overnight, but today was like last night never happened. He barely spoke or looked at me. I felt terrible. Granted, I understand. But I'm so nervous. Any thoughts? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

So you had an affair because you and your dh were emotionally disconnected... Does he understand the connection between your disconnect from him and your affair? Are you two taking steps to deal with the disconnect? This dh thinks it would be wise for the two of you to explore how to be more connected. My dw and I have had similar problems (no affairs, just a disconnect) and we ended up scheduling a few quiet emotional talks each week. It helps with her sense of connection with me and that makes her happy. I end up feeling connected to her because she's more loving towards me. [ Reply | More ]

the fruit cart guys buy the ripe stuff that has a short shelf life, which is good for them because they need to turnover for inventory. Grocery Stores can't buy that cause they usually need to store it for a while. [ Reply | More ]

NP: It doesn't have much to do with the district. In NYC, summer birthdays and increasingly late spring birthdays are held back a year in preschool for PRIVATE school admission. They want older kids. Makes their records look better when everyone is reading by middle of K. Of course they're all reading, they'd be in public 1st grade [ Reply | More ]
