How do you guys handle picky eaters? My son is picky... he’ll try stuff but he says a lot of things don’t taste good. We live with my mil and fil and they’re BIG fans of the “eat what I cooked you or don’t eat at all” approach. I have always been more of a “give it an actual try and if you don’t like it you don’t have to eat it” person. Seeing as he rarely gets any say in what’s for dinner, and now that we’re here they have VERY different tastes than we do. When he doesn’t like something he’ll get a corn dog or some chicken or something. It’s not like I cook a whole new meal. Mil just got passive aggressive because ds didn’t like the meatloaf and I heated up some nuggets for him. I feel like they don’t think he matters most of the time because he’s 6. I think he shouldn’t hate the food he’s eating for dinner. I know people who hate whole categories of food because their parents forced them to eat it even though they didn’t like it.

Have been crying all day. Leaving my kids to go on my trip for two weeks tomorrow. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but now the mom guilt and anxiety is really kicking in.

In response to a confession. Thank you. I just keep remembering when they broke up briefly- and during that two week period she was in a bad car accident. She's fine now- but my God- to see my son cry SO hard because she was in that accident... my heart broke so hard for him. I knew then, that his love for her was the real and life-long kind. She's his soul mate and the mother of the most amazing little girl.. I love her like she was my own child. <3 I'm gonna cry like a baby in front of all our Thanksgiving guests. They truly love each other and I couldn't hope for anything more for my son.

I can't imagine feeling this way about my child. Even worse, having even the inkling that my parent felt this way about me. I'm sorry for you, and for your child. I hope your feelings change. Everyone is worthy of love and acceptance.

In response to a confession. You're an awesome mom-in-law and they're lucky to have you.

Back with another confession about my DS & DFDIL getting married on Thanksgiving at my house. She bought her dress. Without me. :( *mildly sad about this, but oh well* It's a beautiful dress, and TBH it's really just what I thought she might pick- all lace. But it's not white or even ivory or cream. It's a GORGEOUS green color. I confess, though, that I wish she's picked a white dress. I also confess that when I saw it, my brain went straight to "I would buy you a green dress. But not a real green dress, that's cruel." *sigh* My heart is just bursting already I can't believe she's finally going to be my daughter (in law), like officially. I love that girl.

Just read a comment on another site that 9 year old girls like “little mix” so i jumped on youtube to see what was about. “Just me mine for the weekend” and “fall for a woman like me”...people are letting their 9 year olds listen to this?! Really?!

I don’t like my child. I think she’s a loser.

In response to a confession. Ok, now I'm having a flashback. One time, my ex was driving and was speeding through the neighborhood and almost hit a rabbit. I gasped and told him to slow down. The next day, I was the one driving, and out of nowhere, he screamed in my ear, "BABY BUNNY!!!" That was almost 15 years ago and it still pisses me off. What an immature prick. Dumping him was the smartest thing I ever did.

I complain about my son,he's almost two and has hit the constant tantrum stage where he dramatically cries over being told no. However,now that he is visiting grandma until Monday,I miss my little man.
