i recently became a mom and my best friend has been a mother for a while now. When i became a mom, i feel like everything i do, she merely laughs at, and acts as though i’m being over zealous. She became a mother very young and admits, she had no idea what she was doing with her first kid. I spend a lot of time (i do go out with friends and my spouse here and there, and work from home) with my ... More
My husband & I are in our 30s (early 30s & late 30s) & we just had our 1st baby this year. It’s been a spontaneous topic within family & friends how many kids are we having. Of course we want 2 at least, we both do want to have a bigger family. But we both know having more kids has its pros & cons to the family. Just curious w/ other couples/parents out there, what made you ... More
We played games, watched cartoons and lots of kid/ Disney movies, went to gymnastics and cheer, read and made up stories of Shirley the squirrel for my youngest. To this day ( they are 22& 19) we still play games, go to football games, rodeo, and movies together. We like to all go as family to new Marvel, Jurassic Pirate or Wizzard movies together. Ticket to Ride and Harry Potter game ... More
So i am currently fostering my 4 year old neice (actually shes my boyfriends sisters little girl) i am having such a hard time with it. I love her so much but i also have a bio son and i feel how the connection is different. Her mom has severe paranoid schizophrenia and substance abuse problems cause her to loose this beautiful girl. She has been living with us for 8 months and with out her mom... More
I understand that I am incredibly fortunate to have two children when others have none at all due to unfortunate circumstances. However, my husband and I know that we will not be having anymore children, we have two beautiful boys that we are absolutely crazy about, but I have been having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that I will never have a daughter. Since I am not a male, I canno... More
Hey everyone! So, I’m just going to rant a little bit. Ok, so I’m 16 weeks pregnant with twins. I also have two older children ( 7&5) and I feel like my husband always lets his mom do all the fun stuff with the kids. I’m trying so hard to spend as much time with and do fun stuff while I can. But no one understands why it upsets me. She took them both to the beach alone ( I wasn’t invited) e... More
Any guys on here who are considering a vasectomy or have already had the procedure. I am wanting to know: duration of procedure and recovery time, which method did you receive and were there any changes to sexual health. Ladies feel free to comment if your significant other has had this procedure done or is considering this option.
Any fixes for complete loss of sex drive? I love my husband and am attracted to him but I can't get myself to want sex even a little. I'm EBF and postpartum 4 months. I'm tired of the fights it's causing plus I think it just makes my husband feel sad :( any suggestions would be appreciated
I work a 8-5 job. And am exhausted by the time I get home. Just wondering what others do with their kids after work. I usually let my child watch a little tv while I prepare dinner, straighten up a bit. Then it’s bath time, books and sleep. Just feeling like I should be doing more with her.
My soon to be 12 year old keeps bring up boys. Her friends are all dating but I think it’s way to young for her to have a boy friend. Is it me or am I being to way over protective? I all ready had all the mom and daughter talks about sex and going through young womanhood? What are your thoughts and how can I also bring this up to my husband without him losing his bananas?
I’m falling more and more out of love w my husband of 7 years(today actually). We have a 3 mo old and a 2 yr old. Intimacy doesn’t exist. Lacks compassion. We have nothing in common. He’s boring to be around. His idea of spending time w the kids is sitting on his ... , scrolling his phone, while the kids turn into zombies watching tv. I run around the house to prepare for the next day while he ... More
I am 7 months postpartum, and still have little to no drive. I am still breastfeeding, so I know that has something to do with it hormonally. This was the same with our first child. When I went to the doctor after first baby I talked with him about that and how I would get angry easily. He said it's probably just loss if sleep and that will change with more sleep. After our second child, I&... More
My marriage is in a rut. Especially in sex. My husband works and travels a lot and I stay at home with our son. My hubby works long hours, but is a very active Dad and a good husband. He helps with meals and cleans too. He works at night sometimes which is fine to me since he is the provider. I feel so emotionally disconnected from him since our son was born (son will be two in Dec) and we ... More
Do any of you have a mother in law who buys you so many freaking clothes even though you have told her multiple times that you have 3 different people giving you hand-me-downs and thus literally have no more room to store clothes?! If so, do you continue to accept the clothes knowing that the kid will never wear them? Or do you give them back so that she can return them? Or I guess I could keep... More
I know my mother in law is way nicer then most. I know she means well. I dont think she means to be ugly but... I do wish my husband wouldn't go to her for everything. It's always about not upsetting her. Last weekend he drove 85 mph to get to her house so she wouldn't be upset we were a little late. Or Christmas I asked to stay home and visit family Christmas eve an I heard my mom... More
I am in my 30’s and my mother acts very jealous and controlling of me. If I have a drs appt and don’t tell her, she questions who watched my kids or why she didn’t know. She will text me and say “we are coming over today” without asking if I’m busy or have plans. I always get a guilt trip about how we moved too far, when it’s only 13 miles away from them, and god forbid we don’t do what she wan... More
have 8 week old baby girl. My mom came and stayed with my husband and i for the first 2 weeks to help out. My mother in law came to the hospital to visit. Babysat twice so my husband and I can go out on a date. The funny thing is my mother in law calls me and ask if it's ok for her to come over and spend the two nights. I said, of course, and then she should feel free to visit anytime. Her ... More

I want them to bond... More
