My Mom died nine years ago today. I miss her so damned much.

In a custody battle, how old do your kids need to be before the court will take their preferences into account?

So my niece is officially "overweight" and her doctor wants her to lose weight. They suggested my sister buy her a chew toy to chew on instead of snacking. Is it just me or does that seem.....weird?? I mean, is there something wrong with letting them chew gum?

In response to a confession. Bless you! Your kids have a MUCH better chance at being outstanding adults because of the way you treat their SM. I know part of the reason my SD treats me the way she does is that her mother showed utter disrespect for me when she was little. I kept my mouth shut then, hoping the SD would see how things really were when she grew up. Sometimes they don't. But thank you SO much for showing us that decent people do exist!

I'm a mom with children that have a SM, I made sure to tell the kids to wish the SM a Happy MD. We didn't go out of our way to get flowers and cards and candy...but she does a lot for them, she's there for them, she cares for them, keeps them clean and fed, does homework with them over the phone even when it's not dad's time (she's a math wiz so she helps w/ that subject). I don't know, I believe in peace and harmony for me and my children, I think it's important to acknowledge the ones that are willing to care for my children even though they don't have to. Everyone is different I suppose, but encouraging peace and respect is a good thing. I admit, it wasn't easy at first, but I got over it.

In response to a confession. As the SM who's been posting all weekend about my SD42, my only advice is to back off now. Your SD probably accepted your support (financial and otherwise) with her hand out and a smile on her face, but you'll never be more than her dad's wife. Regardless of how shitty their bio mom can be, she's ALWAYS gonna be better than you. Being whatever the SK's need us to be is like walking a tightrope. I chose to step off. Good Luck, OP!

I just drove 1000 miles roundtrip to watch my SD graduate from college. Her mother, who lives there, was late to the ceremony and left as soon as SD crossed the stage. At the luncheon afterwards, SD introduced us to her friends as "This is my dad and (my first name)." She didn't wish me a Happy MD, not even when we were at her house the day before and she was talking about her plans with her mom. Maybe it was just nerves, but I did feel a bit slighted, especially since I had contributed on my own (separate from dh) to some of her college expenses :/

In response to a confession. You should see a doctor any time you experience abnormal changes.

In response to a confession. So if this "place" is so bad, and we're all a bunch of horrible women, why the fuck are you still hanging around? I'm guessing it's because you get off on kicking people when they're down.
