[ - ] If you could go anywhere in Europe for a week, where would you go? DH is a very picky eater and hasn't been anywhere. I've been to all the big cities and would prefer something lovely and off the beaten path. Five year old would come too. I speak French. He prefers Italian food. Something interesting or exotic - maybe tangiers? Santorini? Auvergne? Lucerne? Siena? Padua? Thanks! 29 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] My mother in law who watches my five year old during the week is a big fan of Donald Trump for president. She watches Fox News at all times which is why I don't have a tv in the house. She told me how she agrees with his "policies" today and I said you mean his platform of racism? She said there are too many outsiders in this country and they should be kept out and we need a president to do this. And that there are a lot more of people like her in this country than crazy liberals like me. I said we shouldn't talk about this but she kept pressing. I repeated that we shouldn't talk about it and ignored her as I talked to my kid. She kept pressing and I kept ignoring. I'm horrified by these views and don't want my kid learning them but it's free and otherwise very caring childcare - better than any other child care I would imagine is out there. Would you keep ignoring as long as you thought she likely wouldn't be teaching your kid these things directly? It's the indirect teaching - through remarks and such- that worry me.

Why is this so f+*^*!# complicated? Eating clean means so sugar salt or butter, no processed foods, no cola. You eat lots of protein for breakfast. It prevents cravings in the evenings. Eat grilled chicken or fish at lunch with veggies. Dinner is a piece of fruit and a few almonds. No meat. No pork. No corn. No potatoes, no rice, no pasta. No alcohol. I eat clean four days a week. On Friday and sat I add dinner with a glass of wine and dessert. In Sunday I fast. I have stayed a size 0 for 40 years. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I was in the park today and a boy walked past crying hysterically. I didn't see any adult around him so I asked him if he was okay. He said he lost his dad while retrieving a remote control airplane. After some questioning, I found out he was 11 but he didn't know his mom's number (it changed every time I asked and none of them connected me to his mom) or his dad's. From the way he was responding, I thought he might have some cognitive or developmental issues. After trying to call his mom and calling the cops, the dad walked up (about fifteen minutes later)--completely unfazed--with another child. He didn't run. He didn't hug the child. He just asked him why he didn't come back to the playground. It felt weird. Is it because he was a dad? Or does the kid maybe get lost a lot? I know it's none of my business but the dad's response bugged me. I keep thinking about it. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] I'm really concerned about my 6yo. He is starting 1st grade in a couple weeks and he can hardly read. His K teacher told us that he will likely be held back this year as he barely made the qualifications to pass K. He has a list of 100 sight words and he slowly gets through about half and requires me to sound out the other half for him. He refuses to read a book. I sit him down and he won't even try to read the most basic words that I know he knows - i.e. the, and, yes, see. I am thinking of taking him to a psychologist for an evaluation. I would hate for him to be held back and I don't think he has an issue. He just doesn't try whatsoever. Very frustrating. 28 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Dh is frustrated that she's not reading and worries something is wrong.

Try reading Captain Underpants to him. Never ask him to read to you. It makes him stressed and backfires. Just let him enjoy the stories and if he wants let him look at the pictures when you're done reading. But never ever quiz him on reading or "work on" his reading with him. This is something that will happen naturally when the pressure is off. If he's worried about it he will sabotage himself. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I did not make a single friend in college. I was friendly with my freshman roommate, but we lost touch after she moved off campus. I was friends with my sophomore year roommate, but then she studied abroad and she ran with a pot-smoking partying crowd, so I didn't hang out with her after we moved out at the end of the year. I never really took people up on their offers to hang out and as a result, I had not one friend at graduation. I was friendly with people, but certainly not someone I could call if I needed help. I dated one guy, who attended Columbia - I was at NYU - and we later married, but he was literally my only friend. I have no family in the U.S. (I'm a first generation American) and I just realized that 30 people on FB friend's list belong to my DH, as in, they are his friends and family members. The other 25 are people I am friendly with, but again, not necessarily people I can call on. Why is this? How did I make it through life not making any friends? The same was true for me in elementary - high school. At graduation, we had to walk in twos, and if I hadn't had a boyfriend, I wouldn't have had anyone to walk with because I couldn't name a single person. Should I see a therapist? 38 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It IS work! Friendships require an investment of time and energy in order to yield any results. If it's really making you unhappy and unfulfilled, accept an invitation one of these days and commit to making it a great night. After the week is over, see if you are able to complete everything else you needed to complete, and decide whether the time and energy spent with friends was worth it to you. I really wouldn't worry if you decide it wasn't - life is too short to worry about whether you should be doing something just because everyone else seems to be doing it. Do what you want to do in the time that you have. [ Reply | More ]

I'm in the exact same position. I'm an introvert, so I don't go out of my way to meet friends since I'm perfectly content to hang out alone. In college I was friendly with my roommate who was randomly assigned to me, and then she left to study abroad the next year and then graduated early and moved to South America to work for an local nonprofit there. We emailed for a few years after that but it died over the years. Sophomore year I was randomly assigned a different roommate, and I also got along well with her, but then the next year she studied abroad in China and then moved off campus with her boyfriend the following year, and we stopped hanging out as much. I lived off campus with my boyfriend junior and senior year. Then boyfriend and I broke up when we went to separate law schools. I was friendly with the people in law school, but never hung out with anyone outside of school. Just studied alone. Then after law school I met DH, and now all of my friends are DH's friends and their wives. I think it's fine. I also have similar memories of high school graduation. There was a reception after graduation where all the students and their families were taking pictures and eating cookies and fruit punch. I told my parents I wasn't interested in the reception and just wanted to go home. I didn't have any issues with my classmates, they were nice. I even got invited to a few graduation parties, but I didn't go to them since I wasn't particularly close to any of them, and I think they may have just invited everyone in school. [ Reply | More ]

I'd rather have deeper relationships with the small amount of friends I do have rather than shallow relationships with lots of people.

^But my very extraverted sister does think I have social anxiety issues. When I visit her, she's always taking me to parties with her, and it's just not my thing. She has hundreds of acquaintances who constantly rotate over the years who she goes to bars and parties with, but none of these "friends" ever keep in touch when they move away. It's more of a fun person to hang out at parties with sort of relationship that doesn't go past surface level. It sort of makes me sad for her, but it doesn't seem to bother her. And she probably thinks my lack of a large posse is sad. She just has a very different personality. [ Reply | More ]

You are me. I have one friend from high school and one from college, neither of whom live in my city so we just facebook message every few months or so. And then the rest of my friends are all DH's friends and their wives or girlfriends. I wouldn't turn down a compatible friend who initiated a friendship with me, but I'm not out seeking anyone new to be friends with. [ Reply | More ]

There's nothing wrong with you. You're just introverted. [ Reply | More ]

This can be exacerbated at a big university. You may have fared better at a smaller school. No use worrying about it now! [ Reply | More ]

1)get off Facebook that time is better spent in person socializing 2) forget about college/grad school. You're an introvert, the worst thing to be in a crazy place like college, getting thrown in to a huge pool of immature people 24/7 with enormous pressure make friends and get good grades and party. Mature introverts rarely connect at all with this scene. 3) make socializing a little more of a priority, maybe join something where you meet other moms. Don't force it but if you find someone you click with invite her and DCs over, make a little effort. Or maybe DH's friend's wife would be even better! your families can get together . I think you just need a friend or two and maybe some friendly acquaintances and you'll be fine. No, you do not need a therapist! [ Reply | More ]

curious what college you went to? Not trying to diss your school or anything, but I had a very different college experience. In high school I was the only one sitting alone reading at lunch time. In college, I was delighted to see half the cafeteria sitting alone reading at lunch just like me. I found it a paradise for introverts like me who just wanted to read, go to classes and guest lecturers, and spend time alone. [ Reply | More ]

It sounds to me like you're afraid of rejection. That's why you never took anyone up on their offers to hang out. That's how deeper friendships start. Do other moms hang out after dropoff for coffee? Is there one you know enough to say "Hey, I have a little free time today, mind if I join you guys?" [ Reply | More ]

I posted above about the roommates who studies abroad and then law school. I do think fear of rejection may be a motivating factor for me that led me to not seek out friends. But I'm fine with that at this point. [ Reply | More ]
