My confession? I hated breastfeeding it. HATED IT. There was absolutely NOTHING I enjoyed about it. I did NOT think it help me bond with my baby. If anything, it made me resent her for not letting me have my body back. I also resented that my husband couldn't be the one to get up and feed her. It hurt at worst and was very uncomfortable at best. I did it for a month before I said, "Screw this," and pulled out the formula and bottles. Holy crap. That was the best thing I ever did. I actually enjoyed feeding my daughter. I looked down and smiled at her as she played with my hair. It was beautiful. With my second child, I didn't even think about breastfeeding and went straight to the bottle. And you know what? My kids are now happy, healthy 10 and 13 year olds. They're in the gifted program at school. They are both ace athletes too. Gee, they didn't turn out to be fat, stupid, and sickly like all the breastfeeding Nazis said they would. Go figure.

Maybe you should ask why your child's school is underfunded instead of complaining that you have to send in basic supplies. If the school had money in the budget for those things, they wouldn't ask for parents to donate them. Think about it- your kid's school doesn't have enough money to supply the students with pencils or crayons. Now look at the list of things you bought, and multiply it by the number of students in your child's class. Should the teacher foot the bill for all of that? Because, believe me, she is already reaching into her own pocket more than you think, and she is going to be buying glue sticks by the dozen for your child and their classmates when they inevitably run out. Also, she's teaching your kid to read. Watch this video- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcYa3kBG83Y

I will admit, I wish they did ask for an upfront donation once a year for school instead of fundraisers. And also I wish fundraisers didn't give kids shitty dollar store prizes for raising money. The only thing our school ever sold we loved is trash bags. I will happily buy $100 worth because I can stockpile them.

In response to a confession. My former stepson threw a toddler style tantrum in a restaurant when he was 11. The reason? He was not allowed to have a second dessert. My ex took him outside. He was screaming sitting on the ground, then began to slam his OWN head in the car door.

With all the crap you have to send in for school, I'm glad I'm done with that period of my life. Talk about a money pit.

Google photos made a gif out of my little granddaughter patty-caking. It's the cutest damn thing I think I've ever seen.

Hard core MLM'ers love to trot out the 'pyramid' argument and say that all businesses are like pyramids, meaning the people at the top make the most money and the people at the bottom make the least and THAT'S shaped like a pyramid (meaning fewer on top, more on the bottom) therefore regular businesses and MLM's are based on the same principle. Which is such faulty and ridiculous non-logic that I always stare back amazed that people swallow such tripe.

Former DSD age 22. Shortly after I married her dad, she and her brothers brought some of their friends over for supper. She stuffed beans up her nose. She was a college graduate and I'd assumed she was well brought up. No one chastised her, they laughed and went on eating. If you don't want your kids to have disgusting eating habits, impose rules when they're young.

In response to a confession. It all comes down to the parents! Ds was great in restaurants from a young age. But once when he was 2, I was mortified that he was trying to crawl on the table and getting mad that I wouldn't let him. I didn't know where it was coming from. Found out that his grandparents let him crawl on the table at their house! Put an end to that! Then there's SS, who was raised mainly by his mom since dh was deployed often and then divorced when SS was 8. The summer he was 18 he came to stay for a while, and we went out to a nice pizza place. Holy shit. He was blowing straw wrappers at us, crumpling the paper and sticking it in the wall, sticking his finger in the water glass and running it around the rim - making a high-pitched noise - and hanging spoons on his nose, while I & my then-11yo sat incredulous. Dh took him outside and went off on him.
