I can't stand it when parents call their kids "buddy".

In response to a confession. My SIL thought about it, but she'd have to quit her job to make it work. That isn't an option for a lot of people, plus homeschool is a lot of work on its own. I guess if you have the time and patience for it, go for it. My aunt homeschooled all my cousins and they did okay, but she also really made them work more than probably what a typical instructor would.

Parents who are concerned about COVID and CDC guidelines for school: Are you considering homeschooling? Mine go to a tuition based school, so I have to make a decision in the next couple of weeks about whether or not I will send them. On the one hand, it doesn't seem to be a threat, and one would miss his first year of band and the other his first year of "real" school. On the other, I don't want suspension bc they didn't maintain 6 feet, or having to be stuck in a mask all day, or the real possibility of dying from this. I was homeschooled, and I never wanted to do it with mine, but it's a viable option for me. I just don't know what to do.

What does she like to do? For my 4yo, i decorated for his theme, we made cupcakes together, and (bc we are blessed with a huge yard) we built him a sandbox. He still missed his friends, but he said it was the best birthday ever. Maybe yours would like to decorate, bake, and marathon her favorite movie series? Curbside pickup of her favorite food? Online shopping for a cute outfit or something for her favorite hobby?

I need some birthday ideas to do with a 12yr old. We're new to the area, we don't know anyone, we're far from family and friends, there is no pools or arcades or anything fun open due to Covid. It's just me, her, and DH.

In response to a confession. My ex's mom was so up his ass it wasn't even funny. He was 28 when we started dating, had just bought his house that year, and she set the entire thing up for him. When we'd stop at his parents' house and he'd say I was making dinner that night, she'd do everything she could to convince him to let her cook HIM something real quick. She had a key to the house and would walk in whenever she wanted. After we moved in together, she'd sneak in while we were at work to clean and do laundry. This woman went so far as to fish my dirty panties out of the bed. After we had our baby it was worse. She went in while I was in the hospital and completely rearranged the house to her liking. We couldn't even find the effing toothpaste. And of course I couldn't do anything right with MY baby. She was a big factor in our breakup.

In response to a confession. I have a friend who is like, creepily obsessed with her son's life. He's school-aged and her only kid, and she is a SAHM. She dotes on him constantly and I kind of wonder if she's going to be one of those meddling MILs who resents the woman who ends up marrying her son. I think it's so creepy and weird. I'm also glad my parents and DH's parents were the total opposite and wanted us out of the house and not dependent on them for anything once we were adults.

In response to a confession. My MIL is the same way! My DH recently joined the military, she was so mad cuz he moved away and demands we move back there when he gets out (not happening lol). She constantly texts him saying he made her sad because he did/didn't do something that doesn't even affect her. She manipulates him, she's very mean to me cuz I stole her boy. I'm pretty sure he was her retirement plan and him getting married to me ruined it for her. She tried to stop our wedding. I went NC with her recently, he is LC. She throws tantrums when he doesn't reply. She said awful things to make me go NC, but she acts so innocent "I have no idea why she blocked me".

In response to a confession. One of the main reasons we keep my husband's mother at arm's length is because she hasn't quite grasped this concept. She wants to be the only shining star in my husband's life. If he pays attention to his children or me in her presence, she will get angry and make a comment about how sad it makes her that she's being ignored by him. She's an insufferable narcissist.
