[ - ] I'm putting together Paperless Post invites for my son's classmates. I've been going through the school directory and using the mom's email address...but I feel really sexiest choosing the mom! In my household, though we both work, I handle all of this stuff - my husband wouldn't even open the email. Am I right in sending to the mom or am I playing on some outdated stereotype? 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I have an only. Started late and felt we couldn't afford a second. Now, I regret it; DC would have liked and probably benefited from a younger sib. But DC, who is in college now, is an amazing person. Also I know that is terrible to say, but most people I knew when DC was young had two children. And one was usually much smarter and more interesting than the other. In fact, in all the 2-children families I can think of, one kid is much superior to the other. The more kids you have, the greater the chance that one will be a dud. Yes, you'll love them just the same but a lot of times mothers know one of the kids is a disappointment. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Today I was riding, following my gps, and here was a very very very horrible down hill. It ended right on a four lane highway. It was icy. As I started going down, I knew, I mean, I totally, absolutely knew, I was going to slip on the ice, at the bottom, and wind up in the middle of the highway, and die. I did in fact completely and utterly slip on the ice, but my car spun sideways, and I didn’t protrude too much onto the highway. I didn’t die, there were no cars. In this money, I can’t even begin to describe how I felt. I was sure I was going to die. I had the entire vision of the crash, the ambulance, my kids, me, dead. I had to continue driving for an hour after that, and my entire body was shaking like I have never experienced. My upper lip was convulsing - I never knew it even had muscles in it to do that. This was three hours ago and my body is still shaken. Just wanted to share. 13 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My best advice is to talk to your PSD and see if the school can come observe your child at their nursery school. You can say it was a bad day (coming down with something, didn't sleep well). This way they can get another perspective. It depends on the schoolboy ours has many of the schools come visit. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] If someone has a history of cheating when they are drunk - like they lose sight of everything other than fun - how do you deal with them going out with co-workers or friends and drinking. I'm in that situation. SO cheated on me once (about a year ago) when he was super drunk. He didn't want to be with the girl and I don't even think he liked the girl. He just was blind drunk and apparently it seemed like fun. And we have very open conversations, so, as a result, I know he did this in his past relationships too. As a result of this, I'm constantly conflating him going out with the possibility that he will cheat on me. I actually think he's very interested in me and in keeping me and I don't generally think he's very interested in other women. 24 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

He doesn't go out often. t's maybe once every three or four months that he goes out and I think he might drink a lot and I'm not there. I agree he probably has an alcohol problem based not on how often he drinks but based on how drunk he gets when he does go out. It's not fall down drunk, drooling, gross drunk. But it's the kind of drunk where his judgment is very impaired and he does stuff that he would never do sober. I So I'm kind of meh on the (I agree with you) problem with alcohol. I feel like this is an additional problem. I could drink too much 100 times and that wouldn't make me any more likely to cheat on him. [ Reply | More ]

35 . . . I don't know if it makes a difference, but he doesn't drink all the time. That doesn't make him not have an alcohol problem. But without the cheating issue it would be basically fine for me.

You can't control an alcoholic. If he gets blind drunk or even blacks out and sleeps with other people, you're opening yourself up to disease as well as emotional trauma. If he isn't willing to go into treatment — and it has to be his decision — leave. When he hits bottom, maybe, he might get help. But you have to take care of you. [ Reply | More ]

OP here: It sounds like everyone thinks this is an alcohol problem. I agree that anyone who drinks too much is on the spectrum of having an alcohol problem. But I could drink too much every night of the week (I don't) and I still wouldn't cheat on him. I think this is a slight alcohol problem (he doesn't go out very often at all - every 3-4 months) mixed with another kind of problem (a fidelity problem / a morality problem / something like that). Do I need to look at this differently? [ Reply | More ]

Yes. You're wrong. Look at it this way. Either we're right, and he's an alcoholic. Or you're right, and he isn't an alcoholic, he just continues to practice a behavior that will inevitably lead to him cheating on you. Is that really any better? [ Reply | More ]
