In response to a confession. What's wrong with him keeping stuff for dd at his house? If you're one week on/off then it sounds like he has her 50% of the time. Do you expect your dd to drag clothes and toiletries to his house every time? And so she has a bedroom over there, is she supposed to sleep on the couch? I just don't get why everything is supposed to be your house. Your dd shouldn't have to pack luggage to spend half her time at her dad's.

I have mixed feelings about the picky eater thing. My mom has narcissistic tendencies. She loves to tell people that, when we were kids, we had to take a small portion of everything and try one bite. If we didn't like it, it was okay, and we could have a peanut butter sandwich. The problem is that it's a total lie. She knew I hated meat and onions, so that's what she fixed every night: meat loaded with onions. And I would have to sit there until bedtime if I refused to eat it. I feel like there's a lot of control involved with some parents. It's a fine line between wanting your kid to try new things and make healthy choices and, "I'm the parent. You're the kid. Do what I say." I know it's an unpopular opinion. Feel free to bash. But i think it fits a few people here.

Ds/18 went off on me last night because I woke ex-dh up to get get ds's car keys. He's not supposed to go out or come in after 10:30pm on work nights. He choose to go sit in his car to smoke weed and listen to his music full blast. I told dh and ds comes back in saying he hates me, I'm a fat bitch, if I was a guy he'd beat my ass, etc.... I hate that kid. I never thought he'd talk to me like that. So disrespectful. He doesn't like the rules I impose, yet he barely goes to school, won't get a job and doesn't do his chores. DH yells, but always gives in. I haven't given in 1 time since he turned 18 in June. I won't give him money or anything.

Damnation!!! If I just got off night shift and I just woke up,what makes you think I want to answer 100 insane questions?! NO,I don't know where the Vicks is! You told your son to get it,ask him while he's sitting in the couch! Not the brain dead woman who just worked a heavy night shift and is trying to find a cup. No, I don't know what time the baby ate,ask your son fed him,I'm trying to figure out what the year i am in!

So in an effort to not duplicate xmas gifts for dd9 I asked exDh what he purchased on black Fri and what else he planned to get. He as usual told me since we have week on week off custody duplicate gifts are fine since he would take care of and keep his purchases at his home. Instead of sending everything to my home and I send what she needs when she goes with him for his weeks he keeps clothes, toys, toothbrush, coat, bedroom, etc at his home which makes no sense since I am her mom not his wife. He is just so difficult.

I declined SIL's invite to come to my nephew/her niece's joint birthday party. Reason? There will be 20 toddlers there and their families. Last year, I went and got so, so sick. I'd rather not get sick again, so I'm saying no. Kids are little germ-bombs.

In response to a confession. I typed up a big long response and apparently didn’t submit it. When I cook ds eats the food. My in-laws even love the stuff I cook that he likes. I made a point of cooking dinner at least 2-3 times a week so that there were also leftovers of stuff he would eat on days they cook and he doesn’t like it. The only reason it’s “crap” now is because I’ve been working 4pm-9pm lately, and on my days off mil decides to make a week’s worth of meatloaf and something else. There’s 3 adults and 1 kid and she makes 5 pounds of meatloaf. No one here likes leftovers, and she knows he doesn’t like it, it’s her meatloaf we both ate my mom’s recipe. Butbthey make a lot of things we didn’t normally eat, hamburger helper... sloppy joes... canned ravioli. I was a picky eater as a kid and a lot of my issues were texture based, and if I tried to eat it anyways I would throw up. It just irritates me that I have a way to deal with him and then he gets shitty remarks.

I confessed here honestly, once. Never again. I was called a lot of bad names.

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.
