[ - ] Just had coffee with some moms while the kids played for a couple of hours. I mentioned that I had seen a movie with a particular actor earlier in the morning, and one of the moms immediately said, in all seriousness, that he was her "get out of jail free guy" and that she and her DH had an agreement where she could have sex with that actor if she ever met him, and that her DH also had a "get out of jail free" person who was in his industry. I thought she was joking but then she actually mentioned that she has already managed to get somewhere near him, though it didn't actually pan out. It was the fucking weirdest thing I have heard recently. She was not laughing at all. It was like they were completely real plans. Ok. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It's a little rough around the edges outside of the business district. Just not a place you'd want to have a second home; there are gang members there. The rest of the North Fork is great, though. Tons of farm stands, wineries and several very good restaurants. The summer and harvest traffic is increasingly heavy, but the only place you see the most obnoxious Hamptons attitude is in restaurants like North Fork Table (considered to be the best restaurant in the Hamptons, though it's not in the Hamptons!). They take the ferry across from Shelter Island and do the loud-talking poser thing. But at least the place isn't totally full of them! [ Reply | More ]

We lived in a mess. My mom cooked, baked, socialized. We the kids took care of laundry from the age of 8, and cleared clutter when guests were expected and taught to polish windows, clean out the fridge, wipe down the stove, vacuum and most other housework. I'm a clean freak now. And my kids do no hard cleaning! [ Reply | More ]

I am a SAHM with no help and with 2 young kids. Actually, my mother helps sometimes, but 80% of the time she helps, I am using that time to clean or cook. I agree with your mom. A house doesn't need to be pristine. You'll have plenty of time for that when your kids are older and can help, or when they leave the house. [ Reply | More ]
