Reddit is a cesspool, but I could probably get sucked into reading a child-free sub-reddit. There was a childfree site that was popular back when Truu was happening? What was it called? That place was crazy. Now I just miss Truu, Ha!

I recently discovered the child-free subred. Man, those are my peeps for sure. I can't believe some of the horror stories I've read on there!

Sweet wonderful teenage son was an absolute dickhead today. I wanted to throw him out of the car on the freeway, LOL.

Christmas morning my son opened his stocking gifts first and thanked both of us for each gift. He didn't rush. He then opened one small gift, thanked us again, and then handed me a gift to open. He took turns, waiting for his father and I each to open a present before he opened another one, and he paid attention to our reactions. He was genuinely touched to receive a pair of Air Pods, which he didn't expect. He read every card attentively, and was gracious to each of us, thanking us for the simplest gifts. He opened a box of socks, undershirts, and underwear and said, "Wow! Thank you!" He was delighted with his bathrobe and slippers, and his new pajamas. He has social graces, and he understands gratitude. He is not materialistic or boastful. Now that he is a teenager, I can see that I have been raising him right. There have been years when we have had more, and years where we have had less. He knows that the spirit of the season is not about what you receive but what you give.

Good Lord- it's not about "not being happy for people." I love how people want to post the intimate details of their lives, but no one is supposed to judge them. You can post whatever you want...and I can have whatever opinion I want. That's how life works. I would never comment on someone's FB post saying that I think it's tacky, but it is. If you don't want to be judged, don't post that shit, Karen!

wow someone sounds controlling and mental. If you can't be happy for people who are happy to get something nice, then you're the one with the issues. It's their FB, they can post what they want. If you want to be petty about it, then delete them. Simple as that. Happy Holidays Scrooge.

In response to a confession. I'm going to say it- showing off your gifts on FB is tacky. As my mother used to say, it's "gauche." There are folks that, when they do it, I think well, maybe they don't know better, because they never had money before, but some folks should know better, or maybe they don't care about looking like jackasses. This doesn't make me "jealous." It makes me a person who had a solid upbringing. As a kid, if you bragged to the kid down the street about what you got for Christmas, wouldn't your mom have told you to hush up, and given you a lecture later about how that is rude? Mine would have. We weren't rich. Just average folks, but I was raised right. My DH gave me a pair of diamond studs for our anniversary. They're 1ct total. I never said a word about it to anyone. I just wear them. People probably assume they're fake because they're so big! I sure didn't do a FB post about it. I'd rather die! I know- full humblebrag! But sometimes people think they look classy, when they just look assey!
