In response to a confession. I was with you until “he’d never have considered counseling or antidepressants.” My parents didn’t believe in those either, and I suffered through 7 straight years of depression so severe that the doctor wouldn’t believe I never tried to kill myself. Please do not perpetuate the idea that counseling and antidepressants are indulgences. Some people’s brain chemistry is off balance and they need medication to function properly. Others need therapy. I hope your children don’t have these problems that you won’t address because then they migt be like me-a lifetime of therapy to undo and unlearn all the shit.

In response to a confession. Every teenager goes through breakups and angst on a daily basis. I was one who either suffered or bloomed depending on the day. But I wasn't allowed to be lazy, ignore my parents, do what I wanted, and certainly not get high. If I lied I paid the price. As my dad told me once, our children's only rights are for us to feed, clothe, house and protect them. He would never have considered counseling or antidepressants. He'd tell me to get it together.

My almost 18 year old ds has become someone I really don't like. Lazy, pot smoker, doesn't listen, does what he wants, lies. I've had enough. Ever since him and his girlfriend broke up he has become like this. He won't take any antidepressants or go to counseling. He was never like this. Not this bad.

WTH is the "fourth trimester"? My friend just had a baby and keeps posting pictures with that hashtag. You can't have four trimesters; a trimester is a third of a term....I know I'm being nitpicky but I would be just so glad to have that kid out of me that I would stop referring to it as trimesters at that point.

I'm pretty sure that pizza confession was mine and I'm going to the same SIL's house for dinner tonight. I'll keep you posted.

OMG the ass wiping reminded me of a terrible story. I went through boot camp in Florida, in the summer. Sometimes we'd be out marching around in all our heavy gear, and it would start storming, so we'd get soaked. Then the sun would come back out and we'd keep marching in the intense heat and humidity. Rashes and heat boils were common. But this one girl was really in pain - she could barely walk and had to go to medical. Now in boot camp, they do their best to try to break your psyche, so instead of keeping it private, our Company Commander wanted to embarrass the shit out of her - so she announced to our whole company that the reason this girl was in so much pain was because she never wiped her ass, and....well I'll leave the rest up to your imagination.

People have a lot of confidence in me. I have zero confidence in myself.

In response to a confession. Who would trust a 3 y.o. to wipe their ass sufficiently? I can't imagine not at least helping them out at that age. But I'm sure your ass was sparkling clean.

In response to a confession. How many 6/7 year olds that don't wipe do you know? And why do you know that? That's a really weird thing to even think about. I have 6 nieces and nephews, 2 more on the way, and a handful of my friends have kids too and I just don't know how that would come out. Like how do you know they didn't? Do you ask them? Do you check their underwear? (Creepy) Lol I am struggling so hard to wrap my head around your confession.

What is up with all the kids that are like, 6 or 7 years old who won't/can't wipe themselves after a BM? My parents would so not have put up with that. We all were trained to wipe ourselves when we were 3 or so. It was sort of part of learning to use the potty I believe.
