I'm on a new mission to make a full wardrobe for DGD's barbie dolls. I would say I'm an intermediate sewer (sewist?) I guess. Spent ten bucks on a sewing pattern packet with an entire wardrobe of outfits. I have so much 'cabbage' (scrap fabric not big enough for a garment) and I'm pretty stoked to use a good bit of it up making barbie clothes. DGD loves clothes and I think she's gonna LOVE having lots of outfits for her dolls to play with.

I recently moved back to my hometown & went my parents to organize stuff. I was awestruck to find a gift from my 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Chan. A beautiful pair of red/black winter gloves. I still remember the dept store wrapped box & big red bow. She knew we were quite poor (area had gov't housing and have 4 siblings). Beside a few random school pictures, my siblings and I don't have anything left from childhood. I'm even more thrilled have kept these special gloves 25+ years later. Thank you, Mrs. Chan <3 I'm wondering if you have anything left from your childhood?

There's this woman I know who posts cringey pics on FB of her 17yo autistic son and his 16yo autistic GF. Like, pics of them making out, play wresting, all twisted together like pretzels in odd sexually compromising positions. Clothed, obviously, but it's still VERY weird. All I can think when I see those pics is, "He's gonna knock her up while they both still have braces on their teeth, and you're probably gonna celebrate like it's some wonderful event." I just find it so cringey and trashy.

I shouldn't even have to say this, but this is your friendly reminder to not be a judgy asshole. My friend's 6 year old daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor (DIPG) 2 months ago. It is fast moving and theere is no chance of survival. Realistically, she probably has about 6 more months to live. This past weekend, their family went to DisneyWorld, you know, 'cause they're trying to fulfill all her of wishes before she dies. She has developed some mobility and balance issues and her radiation has made her tired. She doesn't have a wheelchair because they are expensive and she, sadly, wouldn't need it for long. So she had a stroller. Well, leave it to some asshole Karen to give them shit about their kid being too big for a stroller.

If the vaccines work so well, why are vaccinated people still dying and getting sick? It's our body and we should get the say so in what goes in it. Healthy food, junk food, drugs, alcohol, etc..... I'm in charge of my own health! Also, who has the right to say we can't abortions if we need it? What about a woman who was raped, molested, etc.... The Government is supposed to protect our rights. They're slowly taking away our rights. Wake up! It's going to get worse.

In response to a confession. Why? He's not refusing to treat them. For decades, there have been pediatricians who have refused to treat children who are unvaccinated. And doctors all the time will refuse to schedule appointments for patients that don't have insurance or who have an outstanding bill or who are just downright difficult people. If her DH is an ER doctor and refuses to treat someone, that's different. But I don't think that's the case. And in many hospitals now, they ARE refusing non-vaccinated people from ICUs and ERs because if they only have 2 beds, and there are 10 people who need them, they are going to choose the patients with the best possible chance of reecovery, which is NOT unvaccinated COVID patients. But this is the situation they created, so they can't really be upset about it. And I don't understand why people who don't trust doctors to know how to prevent COVID suddenly trust them to treat it.

In response to a confession. Yep, it's the LAW in our state. and it was changed a few years ago. The custodial parent receives support until the child finishes college or age 23, whichever comes first, so it gives up to 5 years in college. And I'll take every penny I can get from a man who wouldn't even buy so much as diapers when he was a baby. Who wouldn't contribute to his infant's needs, causing me to have to dip into my retirement while on maternity leave. Who makes three times as much as I do, only pays 9% of his income to support, and pays for nothing else other than half of college tuition, which again is the law. Before DS was driving (I bought the car and pay the insurance) and was too swamped to take him for a haircut, he told DS he'd take him for a cut - as long as I sent him to his dad's with $20. Really? Won't even pay for a haircut? So yeah.

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.

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.

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.
