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'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. :-/

Lost my mom to cancer last June. It was so fast and one of the most devastating things I've ever experienced. She, my brother and I were close. Sometimes it really hurts and when my kids tell me they miss her my heart shatters because they had the most amazing lovng grandma and lost her too soon. I've noticed it's less often and less intense, the grief and I know it's normal. But sometimes I don't want the pain to fade. That pain helps me remember her. When the pain is less, I feel like I remember her less. I dont want it to consume me. I am happy. I laugh, I live but I never want her memory to fade.

Whenever my mother gets upset, she doesn't calmly talk. She screams her point repeatedly, not listening even if she is wrong. Finally I just turned to her and said quietly "I think the problem is the more you yell, the more you realize you are wrong. You think yelling is trying to get the point across. It is not and you are making things worse. If you are frustrated, then please take a breath." I won't talk to her until she calms down. I am no longer a kid who has to do what she says even if I know deep down it is wrong but an adult who deserves the same respect she gives a stranger. She likes to throw things in my face such as my religion (Honor thy mother..) but I know she is being dishonest or wanting to hurt others, I cannot listen to her.

Every morning I get up really early, fix a really healthy breakfast and a really healthy lunch for my daughter, get her ready for school, drive her to school, then come back and buy myself a coke and bag of chips for my really unhealthy breakfast. Shame on me!
