Okay, if you have missed our meeting, and I am calling to reschedule, and promising to put a new written notice in your daughter's backpack with the new day and time, do not ask me to call you and remind you that there is going to be a letter coming home. This right now- this is the conversation where I am telling you. Look. In. Her. Backpack. No, I am not calling to remind you! Do you want me to come to your house and put it on your calendar, or should I come to your house, wake you up, and brush your teeth for you too? Jebus!

I came home to a clean house and dinner started (fish tacos) by my DD17. So proud of her for being so mature and responsible. And I know she doesn't want anything, she's not like that. I'm happy for me though for an easy night.

DH says we come first, but his actions suggest otherwise.

I try not to think too much about my marriage. It's a rabbit hole and I'd rather be happy.

I would also like to have a second child. Unfortunately, my husband can't stand the thought of me getting fat. (he wasn't in the picture with my first child. ) it makes him sound shallow, but hes really not. He just doesn't want an out of shape wife.

A while back we had another family spend the night at our house because of a wedding. Their kids are 12, 9, and 6. The kids were up all damn night. All of them slept with their parents! It was a huge kerfluffle to get them to sleep at all. What the hell? Our kids (8,6, and 2) never do that. We tell them to go to bed and they go to bed no matter where we are. Why not just be a parent and put your foot down and tell them to go to bed? They kept everyone in the house up all night. And it isn't a small house. Never again. Thank heavens we trained our kids from the beginning.

I forgot it was picture day for my son. I sent him to school wearing a plain charcoal t-shirt. Last year I forgot too and sent him wearing a Halloween themed skeleton shirt. I even wrote it on our fridge calendar this year. Sigh, when my dh is out of town for work I am so forgetful.

DD15 got involved with this after-school thing that wound up being disorganized, chaotic, and run by people that she didn't end up liking. So, she decided to quit. She was texting with another kid in the program and he asked why she quit, she told him she didn't like the XXX family (that runs it), among some other reasons. He showed the text to the entire family and now the mother's all up in arms, calling other moms from the group about it - but NOT ME. She didn't call me. I had to hear about it from another mom. All because a 15yo kid doesn't like her in a text message. This whole thing has been riddled with drama since day one. I think the mother is overreacting and pot-stirring. And I also think DD learned a really excellent lesson about texting, privacy, and loyalty. Her text message was meant for that one kid, and he showed it to everybody. I'm beyond glad that she decided to quit this program. I can't handle this kind of drama.

I barely remember being thirteen. Middle school is pretty much a blank.

I was still playing with Barbie dolls at 13.
