Father’s Day is this week! Just want to add in a board book that my toddler & his daddy will enjoy reading together. Any suggestions? My toddler is currently 17 months but he enjoys reading & listening to his daddy read. Thanks!
Does anyone else deal with this? When we first met he seemed to be interested in holidays, bdays, bbqs, etc. Now he will use any excuse to avoid them and even on Christmas morning, Easter morning he just lays in bed. Feeling alone and I don’t want to be miserable and miss out on all of these sweet memories with my little ones, but I feel like he makes my holidays miserable since he doesn’t enjo... More
Anyone else’s Mother’s day full of tantrums? lol. Anyways, I have had 3 Mother’s Days since my son was born. The first, it was just us as a family of three. I sent everyone in my family that is a Mom - a card. (My Mom, my sister and my MIL). I didn’t get a card in return from anyone. For my second Mother’s Day - we went away for the weekend with my in-laws. I had my son make my MIL a pain... More
To all my fellow moms out there struggling with postpartum depression and realizing that Mother's Day, and motherhood, isn't living up to what they were hoping and is really, really hard. Try to take some time today for yourself and do something you enjoy, even if it is without your kids for a bit. Much love.
Just in case anyone is “stuck” between spending their mother’s Day between their own family and their MIL - here’s an article for all your hubby’s. https://jacksonvillemom.com/love-marriage/dear-husbands-mothers-day-not-mom/?fbclid=IwAR3s0f-e-qGaxgZ_0-9ujIqdsGbu0MZ4p4ru2a9f3MfS_rSNSe6bm_aQ1ds
The past 2 Mother’s Days (my only 2 so far) my husband never acknowledged that I was a mother. Last year, my FIL took my MIL and me out for a Mother’s Day brunch even! Anyway, he says that I’m not his mother so he doesn’t need to do anything which makes sense to me... but also isn’t this a day to celebrate that I am a mother and that he is a father and that we appreciate each other? I know we s... More
Hi Mamas! Looking for some advice on how you spend your Mother’s Day. The last two years (my first and second mothers days) I incorporated my MIL. Only to find out that she basically forgot about me 😭😭 Do you - 1. Let your husband and kids decide 2. Spend the day to yourself 3. Spend the day with family 4. A blend of 2 and 3. Thank you!
My family gets together every Easter for lunch at my mother’s. We basically get together for the main holidays and every few months for birthdays. This year, my sister’s kids were going to be at their dad’s. Their dad is now letting the kids go with my sister on Easter. Rather than going to my mom’s, they are going to her boyfriend’s family get together and skipping my mom’s. My sist... More
I’ve never done an Easter egg hunt as a kid or put one together. I see that most people put candy in the eggs for older kids. Ideas for 2 yr olds? I’ve gotten some suggestions like stickers, goldfish crackers, Cheerios, and stamps.. what else?
Hi! I know Valentines Day is a “holiday” that many roll their eyes at, but my hubby and I like to do something small and special for each other. Other than the obvious - chocolate, go out for dinner, sex, cards - what else do y’all give your hubs? If there is anything else? 😂😂
My husbands grandfather gives his grandchildren $100 every year for Christmas. Since marrying his grandson, I have been included in that. This year, he asked everyone to tell him what we spend it on. I asked my husband why and the reason he gave me was “He likes feeling useful.” I’m a little grumpy about this ‘gift’. It feels like he gave money to all his grandkids so that HE could feel good. ...

Every year my husband and I have a battle royale over the holidays. We spend Christmas Eve with my family and Christmas Day with his family. The problem every year is that he doesn’t like my family’s Christmas Eve traditions. This includes, going to a relative’s around 5. Santa comes around 7 or 8. Then we go to my parents to open their gifts to grandkids. This has been our tradition at... More
