I burned a candle in our bathroom over the weekend and when I went to light again tonight, I realized the last burn turned it into looking like a short stumpy penis. The slant of the head, the rim of the head, the burned blackwick makes it look like the hole....or I'm just a perv.

My sister thinks boxed mac and cheese, boxed breakfast cereal, and canned ravioli are "nutritious" because they have calories in them. She feeds them nothing but crap every single day and wonders why they have behavior problems.

I posted in Truu some time ago about me judging a 5 yr old in diapers. I quickly figured I wouldn't judge the poor little girl or her parents for "not training her" being as I do not know the story of her life. Especially since I too, wear diapers because of a car accident I was in that damaged my bladder. We just never know. Who has time to think about other people and their lives anyway? Seems pointless. And what's it benefit? Maybe you are told the truth from the mom saying she is just too lazy to train her child. What then? Will it make you happy for the rest of your life to know this, that you were right? To be able to criticize her for five minutes will change the world perhaps? Generally speaking of course. I am not speaking about anyone in particular.

I saw a 4 year old in diapers today. Not even pull-ups. Diapers! He didn't have a disability or anything as I was chatting to his mom for a while. He also didn't speak any words until he was 3.5 years old. I know kids have their own timeline for things, but this seems a little long, no?

Total honesty, I only feel good about myself when I'm better than someone else. I have no internal barometer for self-worth and am constantly comparing myself/my child to others. I have no idea how to fix this. How you feel good about what you're doing when you don't compare? How do you know it's worth feeling good about, if you don't know where you stand?

SIL was in a long distance relationship with a guy for 8 years. Yeah. 8 years. They'd continually discussed trying to coordinate their grad schools/internships in the same city so they could experience the relationship on a daily basis before advancing the relationship. SIL finally got an internship in his town. Right before she arrived, he told her he was too busy with med school and needed a break. DH thinks "stuff happens". I told him no way, this guy has always had other girls on the side, (or more likely SIL was always the side) and with her coming to town, he had to get rid of her before his whole game was up. I also think SIL is an idiot for doing a long distance for 8 years and never bothering to introduce him to MIL and FIL, and MIL and FIL are idiots for letting this happen to their daughter. So much stupidity.

Is it year 2029 yet? The youngest will turn 18. I'm terrified I won't live that long or something will happen and I'll be disabled. I want to enjoy life again. :-( Scared it won't happen.

My dad is ill and the nurse estimated that he less than 6 months. I knew it was coming since his decline is obvious, but there is really no way to prepare for the loss. :( I love you daddy.

My ds7 is not a perfect child, but I love how when I take him places he is always so sweet and polite. He picked up that I always say "No thank you, but thank you asking/offering ." when someone asks me if I want or need something. He does it now too and everyone always comments on how polite he is. He loves getting and giving hugs too. He isn't perfect, but he is so sweet.
