In response to a confession. He's gone! He was sworn in (with 40 other young men and women), had five minutes to say his good-byes, and he was gone. Forty-plus years ago I was married to a Marine, and his stories of boot camp scared the hell out of me. I just learned today that boot camp now isn't as bad. My ex was hit several times, sleep deprived as punishment, and had to walk through a Quonset hut full of tear gas. They don't do that anymore, so my almost debilitating fears are a little less now. But, damn, I miss that kid so much!

I’m currently “hiding” from my SIL by staying off of Facebook and Facebook messenger. She’s watching her kids so her SAHD of a husband could go out for st Patrick’s Day. It was her day off and she tried to pick up an extra shift and made him ask me if i would babysit her 4 kids tonight. It would have been such a hassle for him that even though I said yes as long as they wenthome at a semi decent time he was planning to cancel if she went to work. It’s a school night, ds needs to be in bed early, I need to be in bed at a decent time for work, the kids don’t listen to me that well, and one of them is an infant. They are not sleepover on a school night material. She texted me while I was in the shower asking me if she can bring them now because they want her to come in and will offer her the bonus she wants for it. I’m going to pretend I was asleep and didn’t get them till tomorrow morning.

I love my son, but I can’t stand playing the games he makes up. I like that he has such a creative imagination... but when it comes to playing with him it’s awful. Even if I don’t want to play he includes me in the game (I’ll be in the middle of cooking and he’ll come into the kitchen and start playing like I’m part of his game), he’s bossy (tells me what to say every 3 seconds and if there’s props he rips them out of my hands to show me how to use them right), there is absolutely NO logic to his games and when i ask him to explain he just repeats what he already said or gets crabby with me. So I tell him I don’t want to play and he whines and pouts because he doesn’t want to play alone, but refuses to play any regular game like hide and seek or tag or something basic.

In response to a confession. They do it when I’m not around. It just pops up and when I ask ds about it he’ll say “aunt Sarah gave this to me last week...” I feel like it’s too late to make him get rid of a toy if it’s not at the time he gets a new toy.

Some middle aged woman didn't check her mirrors and almost backed over my children. I slapped my hand against her trunk and yelled, partly to get her attention and partly because i was pissed off. She didnt even apologize or stop backing up as i was scrambling to get my kids out of the way. My dh apparently thinks that getting angry and slapping her car makes me psychotic. Idk, maybe it does.

In response to a confession. Our grandson leaves today to spend the night in St. Louis. Tomorrow morning at 9 he's being sworn into the Marine Corps and his plane to San Diego leaves at noon. I'm so proud of him, and so very sad at the same time.

There is a woman selling 3 expired car seats on a neighborhood buy/sell page. Someone nicely pointed out that they were expired and not safe to use. It's also against the page's rules to sell expired car seats. This women is losing her mind at the woman who pointed it out because it is her right to sell them and it is people's right to use them if they want. Seriously? Parents seriously defend their "right" to use unsafe products for their kids? WTF?

And just to add about my DD having a child/little girl. I WILL NOT act like a psycho acting like her baby is mine. I have my children. She will have hers. My mother in law was head over heals with my DD because it was her 1st girl after 3 sons and 3 grandsons. She wanted to be with her and us everyday and it didn't bother me because I love my mom in law, and she never acted like my DD was hers.

I'm going to be a grandma in July! I've known for a couple of months, but I still can't believe it! My 1st born child is having her 1st child. I was 19 when I had her. She will be 29 when she has her baby. She's having a girl! Most everyone wanted her to have a boy, her included, but we're all so happy!

My familyembers leep giving ds6 all of their crap. It’s sweet that they think of him before getting rid of toy-like things but he already has too much stuff and won’t say no to more things. I’m running out of room and don’t even have all my household goods yet. I’ve asked them to stop but they keep doing it and now I have all these random crappy old toys I need to find room for too...
