[ - ] How is it that two working parents can be fed and dressed and have their kids fed and dressed by 8am, ready to start camp for the day, while the SAHMS are always the ones screeching up 5 minutes late looking like they just rolled out of bed with their kid gnawing on a plain bagel in the back seat? 26 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

8 AM camp is earlier than school, so this is a change in routine. I suspect you wouldn't be getting up at 6:00 to alternate in the shower if you didn't have to. [ Reply | More ]

You have to stop being bitter. It only hurts you. Stop focusing on what others have and be happy for what you have. If you're not happy, change it! You don't have to live in a crazy expensive city that requires two incomes. Move somewhere else. Or accept that you make your own choices and those choices have consequences. [ Reply | More ]

Maybe they're tired of hearing wohm complain about how hard their lives are. You chose that life, and you have just as much control as they do, you've just chosen to exercise it differently. You, too, could stay at home or have an easier lifestyle if you wanted to, but you've chosen your way. So be it. To each her own. [ Reply | More ]

My younger one went through a phase like this around 5. I bought him tons of ties, let him pick what he wanted to wear and he outgrew it. I wouldn't have minded either way if he did or didn't. I'm guessing his dad wears a tie every day and he's emulating that. Let him. [ Reply | More ]
