I separated from my ex when my daughter was 2.75 yo, and I did most of the parenting before that, so I knew I could do it on my own. But I never thought about having them home with me all day. I’m an introvert, so I really miss my alone time. I thought they would be in school during the day. Read more

Aww, thank you! I work with a lady who has 4 kids aged 6 and under. Another coworker told me that her (4 kids) mother is a retired schoolteacher, and I’m happy she has help. Read more

I have a 13 yo with my ex, and then I bought sperm from a sperm bank and had a baby on my own. He is now 6. When I was going through the process, I honestly never once contemplated working full-time while home-schooling an obstinate 6 yo who can’t yet read or work the computer by himself. Read more

Our PTA used to sponsor a trunk or treat on a Saturday or two before Halloween, never on Halloween night. Of course all events are canceled this year (I’m in Los Angeles county). I’ve also seen some churches sponsor them and ask for volunteers (you’d have to decorate your trunk). Maybe you could do that in the future Read more

Yep. I left the bowl out last year with a cute sign saying take one please, while I took my son out, and my neighbor said she saw a group of teens empty the bowl.

Exactly.  We get babies in strollers, and I’m like yeah, that candy is not for you.  I didn’t take my daughter out when she was an infant, and I almost didn’t even take her the first year she could walk.  Her sitter had a 7 yo and brought her daughter over so they could both go together.

Truth.  My 5 yo got one stuck in the living room carpet, and it’s still there post 2 professional carpet cleanings.  Reason #86 why I’m not going to replace the carpet for at least another 5 years even though it’s 11 years old.

I’m oily, so I don’t use moisturizer much, but I read some recommendations on here for DHC cleansing oil a few years ago, and I swear using it improved my skin. I recommended it just last night to my tween as she started her period this year and I’ve noticed she’s breaking out. I use different cleansers in the shower Read more

If the Dems can get their sh!it together, they should put that in their campaign commercials, that Republicans want them to Die for the Dow.

I was just talking about this the other day with my boss. I know at least 4 Michelles, and I grew up with multiple Stephanies, Nicoles, and Cynthias in my classroom. There were multiple Sophias around the time Little Doo was born, so I’m glad I didn’t name her that (it was on the short list, but Sophie would have been Read more

The backlash is coming.  Unfortunately Mama Doo was posting stuff on FB today about all the “illegals” collecting in unemployment in CA.  “The illegals” supposedly have jammed up the unemployment system so that the “real citizens” can’t file claims.

Yes, I was coming on here to ask how others with young kids work out. I am a single parent (by choice, bought sperm from a sperm bank) of a fantastic, stubborn, almost 6 yo. Over the last few months, I’ve seen two little kids nearby learn to ride bikes, including my son’s best buddy, who is a year younger. I actually Read more

I will probably watch this, but ugh, now every conservative out there is going to use this as proof that their property taxes are too high, all administrators are stealing, and our education system can be further decimated.

I am fortunate that I have been working from home for several years. However, I now have my 5 yo home with me until potentially September, when school may restart. So now I am faced with trying to work, and school a 5 yo boy who only likes recess and will throw a 20 minute tantrum over writing a single sentence. Read more

I’m so sorry.  Hugs and support to you.  Maybe cut a finger off of dishwashing gloves, and secure it to that finger with painter’s or duct tape?

Little Dude had a stomach virus last week, and got diagnosed with strep throat and an ear infection today. COVID-19 or not, there’s always a reason to frequently and thoroughly wash your hands! And he even stole my Black Cherry Merlot foaming soap because he liked it so much (but still has gotten sick).

1. Used to be body butters from The Body Shop. Despite never having alone time to moisturize, I had like a 5 year supply. Lately I’ve been prefering Hempz moisturizer since it has a pump and is not as messy to apply. But I still don’t use it every day, or even every other day. Well, I do use it on my hands almost Read more
