My dh can be passive aggressive at times - typically the pattern goes...he acts like everything is fine and he's going with the flow, later something sets him off and then it all comes out - all the times he's been doing the things I want to do (but saying he didn't care), all the times he's been annoyed but never said anything. Sometimes he'll talk on the phone and I'll hear him say "Its no problem, no problem at all. anytime" and then hang up and vent to me about how...
My dd just turned 3 and while 2 was hard with her (actually shes always been hard!) she is getting even more wilfull at 3! thank goodness she's my 2nd and I've had some practice at discipline with ds who was a lot easier. But still, I feel like I could use some specifics on how to deal with stuff? I mean, this girl goes nuts if her favorite spoon isn't available. Basic things like brushing teeth or hair are NIGHTMARES daily. Anyway, any recommendations would help. thanks.
Timely post...the past few weeks I've been singing the song 'i'm so lucky...things are getting so wonderful!' I have a 5 and 3 year old, summer is here. Then I have a day like today.

My dh and I were making the same amount when I had dd, except that my job had benefits. We decided that I would stay home because it was easier. I think in Linda Hirshman's book she recommends to women that they one have 1 child because its easier to balance...
I like all your names - I think I have similar taste. Out of your names I'd probably choose Violet. I think I would have named my daughter that but it didn't go well with our last name. Some others on my list Ella (my daughters name) Tess Fiona Isabel Kate/Katherine Annabel Anouk
Funny and insightful article about feminism, working vs. staying at home... http://www.theatlantic.com/doc/200807/working-moms What do you think?

Actually, I just asked her today and she said an ice cream store with pretend ice cream cones - any ideas? Also I think she would love something like a Strawberry Shortcake house - is there a wood version of something like this?
