[ - ] DH and I were very friendly with another couple when we first got married. DH went to high school with the husband and I found the wife very nice. I had a baby boy first. They were still very friendly with us until.....they had their daughter a year after our son was born. After about 6 months, this woman started to HATE our son. We have no idea why. Anytime we would see them either at our house, their house, a restaurant, the beach-she would find some reason to yell at our son. Once she yelled at him to come to her when he was 5 feet away looking at a seagull on the beach when he was 3. She got mad when I said "I can see him." What makes someone just hate an innocent child because of their gender? 17 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Similar: DH goes to bed much later than I do, gets up frequently, can easily get back to sleep, steals the covers, snores, farts, teeth grinds, works from his phone in bed, and doesn't want to get up with DC in morning. Most nights I sleep in a different bedroom. If there's time I will snuggle with him the morning, sometimes morning sex, and get his day started turning on lights, starting the shower, etc. Mornings are my favorite time of day with him.

But I know that they had a hard time at other schools where they were always competing against the other "lesbian parents" children so I know noone has it easy. I am just wondering why the white thing works in my favor??? It's so strange but for both play dates at Fieldston, there were usually only 1 or 2 other white children, and the others were black or hispanic - no asian.... [ Reply | More ]
