In response to a confession. I LOVE the name August, for a boy or a girl! A lot of celebrities have given their children the name. Garth Brooks, Mariska Hargitay, Casey Affleck and Michael Weatherly to name a few. If I were to have another child, I'd pick that name.

Got a brazillian wax this morning. Haven't had one in years. Dh could care less if I'm bald or hairy. I didn't get all my hair taken off, just some. I feel pretty now.

Time flies! My nephew had his one-year birthday this past weekend! SO amazing watching him evolve to a toothy, dimpled and super joyful kid. Found out Mark Zuckerberg also named his child August, though she's a girl. I still think my sister and her partner started the trend we also call him,"Gus" for short.

My BIL is trying to put my 8yo niece on a diet. She's not overweight! But the kids make fun of her and call her "fat". What pisses me off the most is that he lets my 9yo nephew (her brother) eat whatever he wants and when my niece wants to as well, he yells at her. It feels really unfair to me.

In response to a confession. Don't say anything and when DS brings up that the guy's not around anymore, tell him that you are both interested in finding new friends. Then say it's always important to make new friends and get busy with something your son likes to do. If he asks if he'll ever see xxx again, be noncommittal. You can say maybe or pretty soon or whatever. If you don't make a big deal of it, a 4 yr old will eventually wander away from the thought. You DON't want him to think it's in any way his fault, so best not to linger on the situation.

Ugh, I'm gonna be honest here and say 12-13 year olds scare me. I currently work at a middle school. And I overheard a group of girls gossiping about boys they've had sexual relations with over the summer. I mean, I was 12 once too, and I knew this kinda thing happened. It just made me almost poop out my heart thinking about these girls mothers. My DD is 8. The sweetest girl and great in school. I know I can't protect her from exposure but how do you handle it? My mom never gave me a real sex talk. She told me how things worked but she never talked to me about all the exposure to sex I'd experience at a young age. Boys pressuring girls. Girls pressuring boys. Even girls pressuring other girls to just do it. Time will go by quick, I know it's early to worry. How do you raise an informed young lady without losing her?

I was supposed to meet a woman that I connected with through Craigslist (Strictly Platonic) for coffee. She wanted to reschedule because she didn't want to bring her son out in bad weather. First off, she never, at any time, told me she had planned to bring her child with her. Second, I would not feel comfortable meeting her AND her child for the first time, as she and I don't even know each other, and she would be distracted having to tend to her child and have a conversation with me. I asked her if we could reschedule and make sure she has someone else to watch him at that time; she hasn't yet responded back. I am childfree, but I do have friends with children, so that's not the issue. I thought it was kinda rude of her to assume I'd be OK with her bringing her child without at least letting me know beforehand, especially as we don't know one another. What say you, parents?

How do you single moms explain a break up your kid? I'm considering breaking up with my boyfriend and ds has become very attatched. Do I let him say goodbye? Just tell him bf and mommy don't get along anymore and won't be coming around? He's 4, almost 5.
