Ummm, we bailed our daughter out of financial screw-ups because she has our grandchildren. She's actually done a lot better in the last two years. I just don't understand why big birthdays for your kids is more important than paying bills...guess her dad and I weren't so successful in raising her. Oh, and thanks for the LACK OF support here!

"Through the years we've had to bail her out financially because of her choices." You didn't have to do this. You chose to do this. If she knows you'll bail her out what incentive does she have to become fiscally responsible?

I love my DD35 with all my heart, and her dad and I did everything we could to raise her to be responsible. Through the years we've had to bail her out financially because of her choices. Two years ago we told her the Bank of Mom and Dad was closed....this morning she called to say her water had been shut off and she needed $250 to get it turned on. This was after being at her house last night for my granddaughter's birthday party...where her parents gave her two purses, a pair of Keds, jeans, 2 t-shirts and a new cell phone. Priorities????? I may be wrong for paying for the water bill, but the Mom in me just couldn't help it!

My dad did everything right. Ate healthy, lived healthy, everything the doctor asked him to, pushed through the hard treatments and was winning that battle. They still wanted him up above and they didn't give up until they had him. Sometimes life is not fair and I'm so heartbroken. I want him back.

I don't understand people who bond with their co workers. Work is work. Friends are friends. You can be friendly with a co worker but it's rare that it becomes reall friendship. I have a couple such friends from old working days, but I consider our relationship to be a miracle, coming from where it did.

I love that this site updates in real time! I loved Truu but after the sale went through a couple years ago things went to sh*t in a hand basket on Truu. No more waiting for the Mod to update or no updates like when Truu went to sh*t. No more waiting for someone to come back from vacation to update Truu or being given sugar coated lies about what's going on or being left in the dark about what's going on. I never did believe what we were being told about what's going on. I thought we were spoon fed lies and many of the Truu users believed them or should I say they wanted to believe them. I think I love this site waaaaay better than Truu! And I'm so glad to see so many of the users I liked on Truu have found their way here.

I overheard some men spouting some bs at my job. "If a woman doesn't have children by the time she's thirty, something is wrong with her." I'm in my early twenties, but I was very offended by the statement. Yes, there is the possibility of a medical condition, but that doesn't make something 'wrong' with the woman in the way that is implied. Also, I didn't know we lived in an age where women were still absolutely obligated to have children. Women can have obligations, goals, and dreams, that don't have to revolve around having a child on their lap. I truly hope that men who think like this are in the vast minority. Let a man not have children at thirty. He's living the dream, right? Or is his check being garnished for child support every month?

Growing up my mom was a cusser. She didn't just cuss, she cussed AT her kids. So, things like "F*** you" and "You are nothing but a b****" was pretty standard growing up. It always hurt because I knew that cussing at your kids wasn't the right thing to go.She was on drugs and would snap. She would get in MY face like I was one of her friends. Imagine a drugged old woman getting in her 14 year old daughter's face as if she was going to fight her. God, she smelled. Now that we are older and I am moved away I can do nothing but roll my eyes at my mom when she posts on facebook and puts up those pictures like "I love my kids. Like if you do to!" or does martyred posts online or tells me about my siblings while not making herself sound if she did NOTHING wrong but I know how she baits people. I know how she gets and all I can do is roll my eyes and take things with a grain of salt.

I confess that I spilled an entire bag of mini pretzels on the floor getting dinner ready tonight, and they are still sitting pushed to the side because I don't feel like it right now. I confess that I too like mouth to vag relationships, but will try not to mention such seemingly horrifying things. I confess that I was really trying to save a new movie I got for my daughter for a special surprise, but there is a 90% chance that she gets it tonight or tomorrow just to end the terror reign of FROZEN.
