My daughter is 23 and has never worn makeup or dyed her hair or made any real effort to change her natural appearance. She wants to look NICE, obviously, but she doesn't change herself. At all. Just basic grooming. And it occurred to me that the reason she can do this (while most women, including myself, can't accept themselves wholly like that).. is because she never learned to feel ugly without it. And that realization made me feel pretty good, as her mom.

DGD is upset because her 3-year-old son was giving the finger in their Christmas pics (not done professionally). So I showed her the numerous pics of her as a teenager doing the same. Now she knows why I hate those pics.

There's this woman I know who posts cringey pics on FB of her 17yo autistic son and his 16yo autistic GF. Like, pics of them making out, play wresting, all twisted together like pretzels in odd sexually compromising positions. Clothed, obviously, but it's still VERY weird. All I can think when I see those pics is, "He's gonna knock her up while they both still have braces on their teeth, and you're probably gonna celebrate like it's some wonderful event." I just find it so cringey and trashy.

I’ve been dealing with regulating my Dad’s meds lately, as well as getting stuff done at the assisted living facility. Not easy to do 1100 miles away, and it’s been daunting. All day yesterday we texted back and forth. He spent hours telling me how he grew up (in abject poverty due to his drunken father). I’ve learned a lot about him, and it makes me feel that what little I’m doing for him seem like it’ll never be enough.

Please put your kids to bed early on Sunday night! If your kids had a long Thanksgiving break of staying up late, sleeping in, and playing all day, that's great. Just pray for their teachers on Monday, and Put. Them. To. Bed. EARLY! ty

I shouldn't even have to say this, but this is your friendly reminder to not be a judgy asshole. My friend's 6 year old daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor (DIPG) 2 months ago. It is fast moving and theere is no chance of survival. Realistically, she probably has about 6 more months to live. This past weekend, their family went to DisneyWorld, you know, 'cause they're trying to fulfill all her of wishes before she dies. She has developed some mobility and balance issues and her radiation has made her tired. She doesn't have a wheelchair because they are expensive and she, sadly, wouldn't need it for long. So she had a stroller. Well, leave it to some asshole Karen to give them shit about their kid being too big for a stroller.

I found out my 12yo thinks I love my 5yo more than him. Because 5 can eat anything(12 has gluten and dairy allergies), 5 doesn't have chores (12 only has 3), and 5 needs closer attention because he's 5. I tried so hard not to be my mother, that I ended up even worse! Apparently he's been telling both grandmas that we play favorites. It's not fair to 5 to be treated like a 12yo, and 12 can't be treated like a 5yo. I thought I was doing pretty decent with them, but now I'm rethinking everything. I need to change quickly.

My 22yo DD just got back a few weeks ago from a cross-country road trip with her BF. On the trip, they got into a few major blow-out fights and she called me more than once crying. I think for them it was just all the nonstop togetherness and never having spent that much time together with no break. They're back, and they're absolutely fine. But this horrific story about the 22yo girl who was (presumably) murdered by her BF on a cross country road trip is affecting me pretty bad. It's just really freaking me out. Just knowing that things like that can and do happen. You can bet I'm hugging my girl more often lately.

Both of my grown kids hate me and won't talk to me. My 21 year old son still lives with ex in the family home. Judge ordered the house to be put on the market October 1st and sold. Ever since then my ds won't talk to me. 31 year old dd has a 2 year old and is married. I told her I'd watch granddaughter and ended up 3 days later telling her I couldn't because I wasn't feeling good. She called me a flake, cussed at me, and said, "Now you have 2 kids that won't talk to you." So hurtful with her sharp tongue. I've been through 2 surgeries (appendix removed and hysterectomy) since moving out of the family home in November 2019. This divorce has dragged on for a year and a half, ex is an alcoholic and irate, my mental health isn't great but I've been going to Al-anon and therapy since 2017. I'm trying. I just started taking adderall for chronic fatigue syndrome. So many things. I love my kids and miss the life/relationship I used to have with them. I also live 30 minutes away from them now.

I have no hope. I feel suicidal most days. Antidepressants don't help.
