I don’t want my son to turn out like his dad
Passed over for job that’s perfect for my expertise & expected to support the person hired. Screw that. I’m quiet quitting til I can retire. Prioritizing myself & family and that’s it.
I don’t want my son to move back home from college!
Sometimes avoid sex saying I’m still bleeding when my period ended two days earlier
When my son loses a tooth I take money from his own piggy bank to put under his pillow.
I’m pregnant and it’s not going as planned. Texas is scaring the sh*t out of me.
For the record, you cannot both make someone feel unwelcome in your home AND be offended when they don’t attend events in your home. Looking at you inlaws.
I am secretly ecstatic to hear the recent news that my ex-husband is getting divorced. He cheated on her just like he did on me with her. Karma!
I can’t be a great teacher and a great mom. Is being good mom and an OK teacher is enough?
I’m not going to get too worked up if I don’t have grandkids, but I’d sound awful if I said so.
All I think about when I free play with my kid is how dirty the playroom is! I can’t enjoy playing unstructured games or building towers until I clean…
I let my son pee outside in the summer, less cleaning up for me. The neighbors hate us
I want to leave my partner. I’m a single wife….
I miss having sex with my hubs, even tho it was not fab after menopause.
I would love for Roblox to go away forever!!
I love my hubby, but sometimes I want to punch him in the face.
