Every day, I swear I catch myself more and more turning into my dad. Its infuriating because I feel like all the negative traits he has are the ones that I somehow managed to get. Why couldn't I have had parents with better personality traits? I know this is a stupid thing to bitch about but that's why I'm doing it here and not unloading it onto anyone in my real life.

OP with the 3yo DGD and 25yo DS who was being lazy with her potty training. Well, he's back working again finally and DIL is staying home with DGD. They just absolutely do not want her in daycare. (Are daycares even open??) DS is much happier now that he's working and DIL is much happier now that she can be home with the little one. I know DIL will be more diligent with the potty training, too. They are both struggling with her toddler tantrums though. I don't get it. I've seen her have meltdowns (and they're BAD sometimes), but they're so infrequent when she's visiting. She just seems to behave better for me than she does for her parents. I don't remember if my kids were like this. Any parents of toddlers or grandparents of toddlers want to weigh in? Is this normal?

I am going to my niece's b-day party tomorrow. My sister is inviting a ton of people and she's having it outside so we can sit far apart. It's going to be 95F tomorrow and no one wants to sit out in the hot sun and have a party. I feel so bad for my niece though because she is depressed about her birthday not being "fun" for people. Poor kid. I hope she likes the gift I got her--a "real" manicure at a salon where we're going to get fancy nail art.

We finally decided to homeschool this year. Our state cannot get a handle on COVID, will not implement any type of restrictions that might slow the spread, and basically told our state's parents to plan on our kids getting COVID and that schools will probably close midyear. My DH thinks I'm scared, but I'm actually kind of excited about it.

In response to a confession. If your DD is 18, a legal adult, how could you "make" her go to his funeral? And why would you want to? He sounds like a horrible parent, I wouldn't go either if that was my dad.

My dd just turned 18 in june and my ds19 in april.Their dad was just diagnosed with liver Cirrhosis. He blews the kids off. He drives by our home 2-3 times daily we live a mile apart. He never stops to talk to the kids. So he text our DD saying when he dies he's only leaving his youngest kids his house and 401k. Our ds is in basic training and he said ds will fail, was calling all of us names. She snapped. She told him he's a horrible parent, she doesn't feel bad he's sick. She told him you weren't here by choice, your karma came back to you. He's playing the I brained washed the kids card. I never kept him away, I never said a bad word in front of them, all holidays were with his family. His parents picked them up whenever they wanted. He's being a asshole because our ds called me. She said the insults are enough. She told me she's not going to his funeral. I'll make her. I just wish he would have been a better dad. He's missing out on 2 great kids. I don't get it.

Watch my sister plan a birthday party for my niece and not invite me until about 15 minutes before it starts when I live 2 and 1/2 hours' drive away. Happens every single year. I try to ask her when and where the party is ahead of time but she never, ever plans anything til the last second. It's her kids that suffer because anyone who has to drive a ways ends up missing out.

In response to a confession. She has been talking to a therapist through zoom, thank God. The problem with me picking her up after four is that I usually go watch my grandmother, who is 98, in the evening. She doesn't like to go, because it's boring, not that I would bring her over now with covid. It's just a sad situation for her. I want her to be okay and happy. Her mom is such an abusive asshole.

In response to a confession. Where a child's welfare is concerned, I don't think you can ever "overstep"

In response to a confession. Nope, you didn't overstep, and good for you for calling him on it. My ex and I worked opposite schedules so one of us was with the baby and him not in daycare, and MIL filled in where necessary. SO many times she'd see that he did something like this, but wouldn't say or do anything. I'd come home from work to both of them sitting there, while the baby's diaper was about to fall off. One time, she had taken ds out all day and night without a coat in 22-degree weather. Why? Because that's how his dad had dressed him, and she didn't want to "step on his toes." You bleeping idiot!!! The fight between me and her, and then me and him, was what finally ended our relationship. SOMEONE had to stand up for this child!
