I do plan on my major suggestion to her being a change from "stuff" to time together/ classes etc. I guess my biggest problems are that clutter is really only half of my issue. I really just don't want spoiled kids who get gads of presents every second. Right now I feel very extreme. I would love nothing more than to say NO more presents except ONE on b-day and ONE on xmas. But- I realize this is not going to happen. Help me set a clear limit- how much/ how often can...
great suggestions, but she definitely does not have any clue what she has bought. The play room is not cluttered, and even when I reference a specific toy we have kept, she has no recollection of giving it to her. 10 garbage bags of stuff is a lot of volume... and she has never once asked where any of it is. But, I have never come out and said that we gave it all away. I am afraid this would start a fight.
Long story short- I am a wanna-be minimalist having a hard time de-cluttering, because my MIL (and other family members as well) keep on buying loads and loads of STUFF for the kids. I have tried hundreds of subtle hints. I have come out and told her very clearly, "don't buy her things! She doesn't need or want junk... she just wants to spend time with you." I have directly said "no more stuffed animals" We still get garbage bags full of them. She will...
Thanks for weighing in everyone- The former resident of the house was arrested for creating child pornography. At least two of the neighbors moved away because their children were involved. I can easily imagine some young girl getting pregnant..... ya. Very horrible. Of course my daughter doesn't know any of that. But it surely seems possible for some baby to have died there. I guess I am just going to let it fly, and just naturally occur- and it doesn't scare...
Thanks.. I think I will cross post on spirituality. Sounds like our kids have very similar traits. It is really strange the things she comes out with as well.
First off, I am not sure I believe in any of this... But my 3 year old is constantly telling things that lead me to beleve she can read my mind/ see dead people. Again... pretty sure I don't beleive in that sort of thing... but hear me out! We were in an abandoned condemed house (to see if we wanted to buy it), and after we left she started sobbing saying that she saw a baby hanging in there, and we have to go back to see him, because he was so nice and wants to talk to...
Carter and Stevens Farm Harvest Festival (in central MA, Barre) on October 23 &24th is always awesome! www.carterandstevensfarm.com And Old Sturbridge village is having one this weekend, September 18&19th!
My almost 3 year old says this all the time. In front of him, and just with me. Often when the two of us are having a great moment and I say "I love you" She'll say "I love you too, but I don't love Daddy." When he's around we usually say something like "I know you don't mean that" Or "you don't have to love me, I love you anyways!" When dad is not with us I usually say "It might hurt daddy if you say that. Lets be nice to him because he loves us so much!" I...
I think Mt Auburn would be a great hospital to go to!
Hey! Not to scare you, but my friend used to work at Emerson as an L&D nurse and left because of their horrible treatment of moms and babies, as well as really high unnecessary C- Section rates. Please PM me if you want any more info… But I would not EVER give birth there after hearing about their policies and politics!!!!
