[ - ] I wear mostly gap, old navy and loft and use a canvas tote when pushing db around in no brand stroller on the weekends. Do you think "NOKD" when you see me? Would you not want to talk to me at the playground bc I don't have a nice stroller or am well dressed? 19 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Issues include, lots of money and career stress, he states I am aggressive and angry a lot, I think he is checked out completely, not affcionate anymore, etc. I feel he is just with me for DS. Our fight was an ongoing one about clutter- basically he collects things- lots of books etc. they are in piles around the house and growing- it drives me crazy. Essentially I feel like, Our apartment is a dumping ground- it is also not decorated, etc. we moved in when DS was born and have still not gotten around to it. I would like a home- but we can't get on the same page. He stated tonight he keeps his things or he will move out. Other issues include him overriding me with ds, he is the fun one, sugar all day, toys etc. so I am the bad one- disciplinarian, etc. essentially, I feel like he doesn't respect me anymore. Any hope for us? Suggestions or advice? Marriages that have come back? It is sad we had a wonderful marriage at one point- now horrible and I feel stuck, not a lot if money and not sure it would be better bring solo divorced in NYC at 46...., 13 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Op: thanks- does anyone know any good marriage counselors? Or have any other suggestions? I agree our communication has evaporated... This is so sad though- and we feel stuck. No fun, lots of work, house but inviting, etc. he can't be with me for more then a minute without whipping out his phone. [ Reply | More ]

How about a storage unit for stuff that he wants to keep but doesn't use? Re your kid, tell him you would like to be a united front. So pick handful of recurring issues w her and discuss what the discipline should be so you can both execute. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] What age would your kids have to be for you to leave them alone for a minute or two on a public beach while you visit the bathrooms? (Think Hamptons or Cape Cod, not a city beach.) At what age would feel comfortable reading a book at the beach while keeping an eye on the kids? 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

partially depends on maturity level of kid, but 8/9. Reading a book while kids play right near you or are in the water? [ Reply | More ]

You are right. It matters whether then are playing in the sand or in the water. I'm basically trying to figure out when things will get easier. I have left my kids (5 & 8) playing on the beach while I ran to the bathroom. Timed myself-it took exactly 1 minute. I haven't tried reading on the beach yet because I get really absorbed in what I'm reading, but I see everyone else doing it and am looking forward to it. [ Reply | More ]

OR- mine are 3 & 5, so we are far from solo playing in the water for a long time. In terms of right next to them on the beach, right now we are trying but can't imagine that happening for quite some time (constant whining at each other, wanting more water etc) [ Reply | More ]

Really depends on the beach... If not crowded and the bathroom was close 8. Reading a book depends on how well they swim. [ Reply | More ]

I never trust that anyone is watching my kids in the water the way that I am. They have too many people to survey and they don't have nearly as much to lose. [ Reply | More ]

Considering the bathroom is usually far away from where you are sitting, probably 9 or 10, though depends on the kid. Half assed watching the kid? 8 or 9 and only if they can swim. [ Reply | More ]

On the beach (and you can trust them not to go in the water?), 8 - 10. In he water, 13+, with friends, assuming there's a lifeguard. [ Reply | More ]

So sorry to hear this. In the 2-3 similar cases I know of (not ovarian cancer, but other cancers that spread to liver) was 8 months give or take. [ Reply | More ]
