This morning when I walked in the kitchen the first thing I saw was a lady bug. I live up North where it's still cold, hope this is a good sign.

I grew up in a big family with only one brother. None of my sisters can hold a flame to him. Never have I met a guy so mean and for lack of a better word- bitchy. And people always think 'oh poor guy he had so many sisters growing up.' No he acts like that because my parents fed into his crybaby bullshit and always shoveled on the sympathy. Oh and by the way mom and dad, thanks for not so subtlety letting the rest of your kids know what a burden we were just for being all female.

Woke up my pre-teen daughter at midnight to tell her she had a once in a lifetime choice: if I really make her so unhappy (had a manipulative meltdown earlier that day), I'd leave, for good and forever; but if she chose for me to stay, she'd have to agree to work together in bettering things. Of course she said she wanted me to stay. My confession: I meant it.

So it has been 2 years since my hysterectomy. I have since accepted it and my husband and I are in the process of becoming foster parents. Trying to turn this around to be a great thing for us and for homeless children. I am nervous but excited.

Reading the book Labor Day by Joyce Maynard & I identify with the man character way to much. Should my husband leave me, I would be her. That's kind of a scary thought!

They are talking about lice on another board. I didn't realize it was such a big issue - constant checking and treatment. I never heard anything about lice at school when I was growing up and my grown kids never had them either. I don't think I know anyone who did.

Dh's family loves our son. They ask about him, play with him when we visit, and are overall nice grandparents to him. My family absolutely adores him. My inlaws are happy to see pictures occasionally while my family almost demands at least one picture daily. My family would gladly babysit him almost any time (within reason) simply for the chance to spend time with him while dh's parents would only agree to have us "owe" them something later, or to tell everyone else he spent the whole time begging them to adopt him. It breaks my heart that when dh gets out of the military we will be living in the same state as his family and so very far from mine... We've talked about moving to my state but dh has said there are certain things about it he really doesn't like, and I think in the long run he will grow to hate living there. The only thing about his state that I'd really change is the fact that my family isn't there...

I didn't know this was an extension of the Facebook group. No thanks.

I've been a stay at home mom for ten years. I've argued and argued and argued with all of my heart that being a mom should be enough for any woman. I was looking so forward to the time in my life when it was just me at home during the day--to have peace and quiet to fold the laundry, prep meals, bake lots of lovely things for teachers and bus drivers, and show up at my husband's office for lunch a couple of times a week. My youngest has been in kindergarten since September. Both kids are in school 6.5 hours a day. I am bored out of my flipping mind! I spend an hour or two a day chatting with neighbors at Starbucks. I've reorganized my home and decluttered everything. I go for weekly manicures. I go to the gym every day. I guess I just don't feel useful anymore. This is in NO WAY criticizing other mamas who stay home. I wish I enjoyed relaxing. I wish I enjoyed sitting around enjoying the smell of my clean house. I just don't. Unfortunately, getting a job is not ideal for me, because I have to be available for my kids during the day, I need to have freedom to stay home if they are sick. I'm looking into online grad school--and mostly just to give myself deadlines, not that I want to do any particular job!

I'm currently 19 weeks pregnant. I know there is nothing I can do about the labor part and I'm okay with that. However, I feel there are some parts I do have control over. So ladies, how do you maintain your um..."area" in the weeks leading up to labor? Do I have to go someplace to get waxed? I may just make my husband do it. :-/
