Feb 18th 2013 10:50AM I'm sorry, this just doesn't sound right to me. My husband and I work very long irregular hours, too. On nights when one of us has to get up early, or when somebody is sick, I might sleep in the guest room. But overall the best feeling in the world to me is to fall asleep holding his hand. Marriage is about learning to compromise. It's not all about me, me, me. I have to assume none of these couples has or wants kids. Which would just make the whole thing impractical. I love my husband, and I like him a whole lot too. Sure, sometimes I want to watch my own tv shows, so I go in the other room and watch them. I read in bed while he watches what he wants. It's not that hard to figure out. If you can't figure out how to deal with the little things, how do you think you will do on the big things? Not to mention, 2 rents, 2 mortgages. It seems a little silly to me. I know, I know, to each their own. BUT, either you want to be married or you don't. These people are married, living like they are still just dating. That's not a marriage in my book.
Jul 23rd 2011 5:52PM Really? 5 - 10% on a $300 ticket is $15 - $30. Not that $30 is nothing, but did that really keep you from taking a trip?
Jul 17th 2011 7:29PM Um....I outgrew Disney decor when I was about 18......I don't think this stuff would be on my table. Get stuff for the kids room and leave it there!
Jul 10th 2011 11:51AM I'm all for DIY projects, but I don't imagine a tablecloth is going to make much of a rug. It may be spill proof, but I would imagine as soon as you walk on it a few times, it would get torn.
Jun 25th 2011 11:29PM If you are worried about having a second brownie after doing all that excercising, you are doing something wrong. Switch to decaf coffee. you still get a little bit of caffeine, and don't have to miss having it in the morning. Really, you drink wine EVERY night? Or is it just on occassion? If you drink every night, yeah, you might have a problem there. Is there something wrong with having a glass of wine on Saturday night?
People.....please. If you are otherwise perfectly healthy and excercise as much as this guy is talking, then go ahead and indulge a bit. For heaven's sake....will we have NOTHING left to enjoy?
Jun 24th 2011 10:06AM Um....I saw the pictures she was so "upset" about in that magazine (W mag or something like that?) where she was photographed naked. Yeah, I saw her butt. Yeah, it's a big, fat, real but with cellulite and everything.
Now, that being said, she has a great body.....with a bit of a caboose. I just don't see what's up about all the cushion back there. Maybe that's why she dates a lot of black guys? She is built more like Beyonce.
Jun 9th 2011 11:23PM If the only time you and your husband have "closeness" with your kids is in bed, then you need serious, SERIOUS help. I hear this from other people. Our "special" bath time. Our "special" sleep time. It creeps me out, especially with older kids. I think they call it abuse at some point.
Jun 9th 2011 11:04AM Dear Addy,
Nowhere did I say that having children was an interruption in my life. What I did say is having your kids KIDS come sleep with you was an interruption of both sleep and time with your husband.
We were not talking about infants, but since you brought it up, bringing the infant into your bed is more of a convenience for your lazy ass than it is for their safety/security. Don't you read stories of infants being smothered by blankets and sleeping adults? Having an infant sleep in bed with two adults doesn't seem very wise to me. And once you start, you will wind up with a 10 year old sleeping in your bed before you know it. Haven't you ever heard of a crib?
And there is a big difference between losing sleep over your children and losing sleep because your 5 year old is thrashing around in bed with you. Come on lady..;...get a grip. I can see who runs your household. I'm sure you are raising a group of little tyrants because you have no control over any of it. Raising a child isn't about giving them everything they want because they "didn't ask to be born". You sound like a nut and it's glaringly obvious YOU don't know anything about raising kids or people.
Jun 9th 2011 12:11AM To me, this is not an issue about raising a happy, well adjusted kid. Do you have a good chance of raising a happy well adjusted kid wether they sleep in your bed or not? Can you have a happy, well adjusted kid if you coddle them, baby them, sleep with them, spank them, give them rules they need to follow? Yes!
This, to me, is about quality of life for you and your spouse and being able to be an adult when the time is to be an adult. This is about YOU getting a good nights sleep and being able to handle whatever the kids throw at you tomorrow. This is about YOU being able to spend some quality time in bed with your spouse, be it talking, making more kids, or just snuggling up together. This is about YOU having time to spend away from the kids so that tomorrow you have all the energy and patience you need to devote all the other hours in the day to being the best parent you can be.
Jun 8th 2011 11:38PM I dont' understand, does everyone go to bed at the same time as their kids? Or, do they just let the kids stay up until they go to bed and crawl in with them? Kids need to be in bed at like 8:00. Grownups, well, I'm guessing go around 10:00. So, why are the kids not in their room and the parents in their own room?
Hello...Parents.....YOU ARE IN CHARGE. You make the rules. If you enforce the rules that are laid out in plain language, then you will get compliance. It's that simple. Giving in is creating a monster.
