Mittens Kitten-

I'm sorry about the trouble with your mom. I also have a crunchy mom who has always been sweet, gentle, wonderful to everyone...but me (at times). I think moms have a hard time transitioning from the mom role to a more friendly/grandma role and staying a bit more hands-off.

Even if your mom doesn't agree with your method, she should respect your choices. It's hurtful when our moms react like that. I think so, anyway...

It's the middle of the night where you both are now, so hopefully, you are sound asleep.

Talk to you tomorrow!

Morning mamas

REDVEG, where are you!?!

Geigerin, thanks for your support but sorry to hear you are facing some of the same issues. She actually tries her best to respect and support, but that always shows in the form of a "yeah right", "well, whatever you say" comment that is sarcastically made. This is probably because she knows she should leave it alone, and doesn't know how to respond. And this is never before a bunch of "but what I say is really just the factual truth" (because the TV/web says so??) type remarks. It is also interesting plus kind weird to me what choices she likes and which ones she disagrees with. She had no issues with UCing at all and was Very Interested in the gory details. We do a lot of the same stuff, and she is totally nature-oriented. In that context, it just amazes me how her views on parenting and discipline can be so mainstream, yk? I just don't understand it. She is a big fan of nanny 911. How about your mom? What are the issues you are having difficulty with?

morning everybody!
I am going to change my mdc name (suggestions?) because of my dd creepy stalker, (bababa, remember him??) because he knows about our blog, & i don't want him searching for that & finding my mdc posts.

aaaaanyway, i am off to tidy for a while, some client of dh is going to drop something off today & i would hate for her to see our mess

thanks for the recipe mk!!!

oh hey, whatare everyones real names? or would you all prefer not to say?
post #105 of 1378
Yes. Pretend you are new to this thread and then let people know that it's you by PM. Quit giving details on where you live, names etc for a while or just invent screennames for your DD etc, we know who you are . The last thing you want is your stalker being able to read every word you write on here
post #106 of 1378
well, i'll change my username & probably my kids name. i will keep the blog,though, dh says "we only have one life, we are not going to live it in fear because of some freak, we will deal with him when we have to ". so, the blog stays, for, lots of family members read it.
house is tidy, off to dress the kids. (that usually means lots of screaming )

Yes. WE'll know you. And pls remove the link to yr blog asap from your signature. Also, imo you should check your messages on here cfr. referrals to names, home situation, anything that could identify you and 'adjust' or delete those parts. The thread you'd like to have deleted, if mods don't/can't do it, I would delete most info of the original message or replace yr msg(s) in this thread by 'never mind' or similar, to protect yrself. I understood from sth you've written once that you have had an unpleasant/abusive rs in the past, and if it's this person that's harassing you now, I would indeed be very aware and careful.

dh says keep the link but chnage the name, so that he can't find mdc by looking for hwatg, so i might do that. he already knows where the blog is, so, yeah.

ugh. i wrap my bread in teatowels to keep it fresh, & i just unwrapped one we made yesterday & there was this giant black spider sitting in my bread, he ran, now he is somewhere in my kitchen, i guess we won't be eating anything today!!!
post #112 of 1378
HWAT, by googling on yr username you find all kinds of links about you I'd definitely work on that asap if you have such a prob.
post #113 of 1378
it just links to mothering. com, so that's what i don't want . i don't mind the blog links, as i said, he knows where that is, but i would prefer to keep mothering "private".
post #114 of 1378
Just eat the bread :-).

What about finding a lizard hiding in yr laundry? And then not knowing where it went. I did not dare to touch the laundry baskets nor stay much in that room and I actually had my dh, who gets the creeps more of lizards than myself (well, me when they're indoors and crawling FAST), look through it in the dark in the backyard after he came home, lol.
Once I found a mega large crawling bug on my ground level terrace aaaaarrrrgggggggggggghhh and it kept on crawling so I quickly locked all doors and windows and was watching it safely, but reluctantly, from indoors to where it'd go and luckily the insect was clever enough to just continue the walk untill it would walk of our terrace towards the terrace of the appt on the other side. Uh I hate that feeling you feel it on the whole of your back asnd you can hardly shake it off and you know you're actually being silly but you just can't help it.
post #115 of 1378
ugh,scary! but i'd take a lizard over a spider any day.
i don't know where in the kitchen the spider is so i am not going back in there. maybe my fil can bring use some food over.
have to stay in today because someone from apple is coming to collect the power cable.
we had a box of danish cookies in the lounge, so the kids & me are eating those for breakfast now.
