My son really hurt my feelings last night. He said he was going to come over for his birthday, so I made food and got him a gift and all that. Then he calls and says he's out at his dad's house (xdh) and lost his car keys so he can't leave. I'm sorry, that sounds like a complete load of bullshit. Then I found out the two of them went over to my brother's house to watch the game. Which is a great place to watch football and smoke weed and eat snacks. Awesome. I'm just hurt. Then he wanted to know if I wanted to do cake and ice cream tonight. No. That ship has sailed. I ate the cake last night. Come pick up your gift from my car at work if you want. That's what I said. Here's what I didn't say: I'm not bringing it over, and I really don't feel like having you over to the house right now. Grown man, my ass. Not acting like this, you're not.

Xh took ds6 last night for the 1st time since dec. 23, and his crazy gma is really pissing me off. Usually I don’t say anything to xh unless it’s really bad. Like the time she called people in this house names and it was the first thing out of ds’ mouth when he walked in the house. Welp! She told him I said he couldn’t spend a 2nd night with his dad even though he wanted to (We don’t talk, no one asked me, I would have said yes if they had), didn’t text xh. Then it comes out she’s been telling him not to share any of the toys she’s sent home with him with his cousins, still didn’t text xh. THEN I find out she also decided to tell ds that Santa isn’t real and all the presents come from her, xh, and I. Any one of these alone I could have brushed off, pick your battles and all, but all 3 in less than 1 day?! He got a screenful... she’s 70 and acts like a 3 year old.

My brother already has custody of his oldest two grandkids. His son then got another girl pregnant and had a third baby. This baby is just over a year old and the mother can't take care of him. Yesterday was the court date where she was supposed to try to keep custody, she was supposed to bring the baby to the courthouse. They never showed. And now nobody knows where they are. When they're found, my brother is getting custody of the baby. I wish they didn't live so far away. I wish I could help. I hope my nephew keeps it in his pants and doesn't make any more kids that he doesn't take care of at all. He's a POS.

In response to a confession. I find that a lot of times, if there's women around, people will let their kids have free reign. I'm cf, lol. I WILL let your kids play in the toilet and not stop them. Oh, are you stealing lipstick out of your mom's purse? Have fun! Unless they're playing with matches or running into traffic, they're not my problem.

I hate that people seem to think that because other parents are around they no longer need to watch their kid. I brought ds to McDonald’s for the play place. He made friends with a kid who followed ds back to our table and would not leave him alone while we are. Ds was having fun, so I didn’t mind too much, but I never let him bother other kids while they eat. Then the kid starts helping himself to MY fries, I wouldn’t have minded if he had asked first... but nope. Then, after he had his hands in my food he tells us that yesterday he was puking. Ok, guess I’m done eating. I look over at his dad who is watching a show on his phone and has his hands over his ears so he can hear the show better! And he keeps trying to lay on me because he’s tired and his tummy hurts (probably still sick) I brought my kid to the playplace as a reward for being good at school, we’re going to have to cut it short because this guy doesn’t wanna watch his kid.

In response to a confession. What I noticed was that as the kids got older, I was busier, they were busier... it just made sense for them to start doing laundry for themselves around middle school. It wasn't because I didn't want to take care of them. It was more like I'm running around crazy with work, dinner, and their school activities, life in general..and my 11yo daughter wants desperately to wear THIS particular shirt tomorrow... and it's dirty. Yeah, she can wash a load of laundry for herself. Come to think of it- it probably did boil down to them getting a lot more particular about the clothes they wanted to wear. For my family, that's how it worked.

In response to a confession. Yeah, kids do need to be taught to do laundry. Sounds like you taught your daughter just fine. Almost like it was part of your parenting. ;) LOL. Kids need to be taught everything. It's not like they're born knowing how to do laundry, or cleaning, or banking. I think a lot of us just DO these things and don't even think about it. I don't see what the big deal is. This site gets so funny to me when folks get all worked up over such little things.

In response to a confession. What a sanctimonious response to someone sharing their personal experience. This is why I have a love/ hate thing with this site. Oh no! Someone's different! I MUST prove that I'm better!

In response to a confession. Oh for Pete’s sake. Does anyone really need to be taught how to do laundry, barring any developmental issues? I’ve done my kids’ laundry for years. My oldest is a college freshman, living nearby on campus. She’s on the dean’s list. She does her own laundry, cleans her dorm and does her own banking just fine. She doesn’t act entitled. She never asks for shit. I guess by doing her laundry, I really dropped the ball as a parent.

My kids started doing household chores at a young age. They started helping with the laundry at a young age, and started doing (most of) their own laundry in middle school. You have to teach kids things like this. It's part of parenting.
