Sometimes I wanna lock myself in the bathroom for momentary peace
husband is the SAHParent, how to tell him I want 2 B the SAHM so I don’t miss my fav yrs?
Hoping my Junior passes all their classes. Teenagers are HARD!!
I want a second child so badly. But my husband doesn’t because he’s older than me. 🥺
I miss it just being my husband and I.
I’m considering surrogacy because I actually love being pregnant and to pay off debt
I feel a lot of pressure to have summer break full of day camps, activities, play dates...
On vacation w/ hubby & 16 month old. It would be better if we left hubby at home
I. Need. A. Break. From. My. Kids. I’ve hit a new level of burnout
There’s too much pressure on teachers. It’s sucking the life out of me.
I resent my husband’s freedom
I’m not attracted to my boyfriend 😑
Hubby can express empathy for friends going thru hard times, but can’t extend that grace to me. WTF?
I love when my husband travels for work. It’s easier and calmer when he’s not here
Finding yourself after having kids is f’ing hard. Harder still is finding real friends
sometimes i pretend i’m cleaning so my husband has to give my toddler a bath
I secretly hope my son’s team loses in the baseball tourney so we can go home
I resent my partner’s ability to leave all the things (not see them) and then it’s on me.
