Dear future DILs: I want to go ahead and apologize and say that I tried really hard to raise my sons to be good, helpful partners. But I learned very late how to set boundaries with my own husband and they watched me do everything and he did nothing. So I'm sorry. I tried, but kids follow examples and not words. I learned that too late.

Our neighbors had a party for their 5yo's Bday this weekend, and DGD4 came for a sleepover the night before. So I'm at the party with her and DS & DIL arrive. I look, and DS and I are both wearing Star Wars t-shirts. We didn't plan it. I love that kid haha. Best kids party I've ever seen, too. Two bounce house things, one of which was a full on water slide, and one had a full ball pit. Potato sack races, tug-o-war, water balloons, a slip & slide (with a little pool at the end and a safety pad at the beginning) a trampoline.... I mean it was awesome. All outdoors, easy to be socially distanced. Best kids party I've ever seen in my life. DGD had so much fun!

I am so over my idiot coworker trying to make me feel guilty for not having kids. She scoffs at me using PTO for vacations, tells me I must get so much sleep, tells me how lucky I am to be able to afford things when I want to buy them, how lucky I am to have money for my 401k, etc. It's not luck...I just chose to have those things instead of a toddler and a newborn that give me no peace for 20 years. That's all. No need for the jealousy.

Heard my 4-year old nephew singing to Nina Simone. So sweet and impressive! His parents play old soul jazz often and now he's requesting it and memorizing the lines. Such an old, kind soul!

If a relative cropped you out of a picture and posted it on FB, would you be ok with it? Swallow all pride to go a family event at their house just to keep the peace? My sister and I had a petty argument that blew into a huge family feud. I still sent presents to her son, she never acknowledged my kids on their birthdays, or even when my daughter was born.I apologized for my part because my mom was going through a hard time and it wasn't the time. She didn't apologize but whatever, I just wanted to move on.We agreed and I thought that was it-until Mother's Day when she posted a picture of her, my grandmother, my infant son, mother and-I am absolutely cropped out. We hadn't even talked since we agreed to let bygones be bygones. I am hurt and I am refusing to go to the event. Now I'm the bad guy. I am ready to just cut off the family because the things she has done before all this was just waved away as "her being young" *she's 25* I'm sick of swallowing how I feel.

In response to a confession. This is terrible - have you spoken to the dad about his wife's behavior? I think it's sickening that she finds joy in making your DD upset! The kind of clothes they buy her can't be helped if they won't let her wear what she wants, but to laugh about it is really damaging. I wouldn't want my DD to be spending so much time with someone like that. What does DD have to say about it? I did go through something similar where my ex and his wife bought DS what THEY wanted him to wear when he was with them. It was like night and day - skater here, preppy there. DS hated it, too. His stepmom literally laid out his clothes for him until he was 14 and he said he could do it himself. There were only a few pieces that he liked and then SM declared she wouldn't buy him anymore clothes bc he "always wore the same things." He was only there 10 days/mo but had more clothes there than here!

Do you guys think this is weird? DD13s biodad abandoned her for 8yrs, last summer she's been seeing him again. He's remarried. At first she'd go up for a weekend, then a week, then 2 weeks, now it's every other month. We live in diff states. DD likes to wear dark clothing, I let her be herself since my own mom didn't let me. But what I find weird is her stepmom texts me things like "LOL I make her wear khakis and polo or tie dye shirts and she HATES it HAHAHAHA" like she thinks it's funny to upset her by forcing her to wear clothes she hates. Is there something off about this? She brings clothes from here with her, but they bought her stuff she doesn't like.

I canNOT with all these homeschool moms not allowing their children to have a voice and then as soon as they turn 18 expecting them to be adults. "My kids want to go back to school, but I don't and I don't allow them to contribute to decisions regarding their future." Oh fuck off. I try SO hard to let my kids make their own decisions while also guiding them to the *wise* decision. If they mess up, they learn from mistakes and have me there to catch them. Not just me forcing them to do what I want them to do or be or say. I was never allowed a voice either, I guess that's why it pisses me off so badly. There's a difference between respecting a parent and outright fear and domination in parenting.

In response to a confession. Hang in there, mama.. I had the same issue with both of my kids. It's just temporary.
