Parenting is mostly saying, “I’m not cleaning your mess” while continuing to clean everyone’s mess.

I just want to sleep until 9am

I'm married and my partner is pretty much useless in the morning. Every day for the past 3 years I have woke up with our kids. Doesn't matter if I'm sick, my birthday anything. I get them ready fed, complete the lesson, dressed the whole thing. And my partner doesn't wake 10 on the weekday or 11 on the weekend. The one time I ask to sleep in, they bring the kids in our room turns the TV on. WTF. GET OUT. Get them ready. And they had to nerve to say " I gave you an extra 30min."And I still happen to get up with them, while my partner stays in bed. I'm literally contemplating going to the hospital making a false illness just to stay over night and get some rest. I just want one day.

When to tell our son about an inheritance.

Hey there! My mother-in-law recently received an inheritance. She’s already comfortable with what she currently has so she’s invested this money and set up a trust so that it passes onto our son. It’s not currently a ridiculous amount (in the tens of thousands), but it’s a sum of money that I never had as a young person so I’m trying to figure the best time and way of explaining it to him. He’s still an infant at this point so this is more a question for down the line. What I’m wondering is, is there a “best time” to let your child know that they’ll be receiving a large sum of money? I don’t exactly want to tell him when he’s young so that it’s this thing looming in the distant future for him, but I worry that just letting him know about it as we’re giving it to him he could be irresponsible with it. So yeah, is there a best time to let them know about this kind of thing, and also any advice on how to teach him and prepare him for it?

😭😭😭 via That Mom Tho on Twitter. Tag a friend who might relate 🙄 • So what if your kid doesn’t like a component of a dish and they want to pick it out before they eat it? It’s ok. Let them pull out the part they aren’t ready to try *yet.* Stay calm and try to avoid getting frustrated. They’re allowed to not like something today, even if they loved it yesterday. • Remember that touching a food still counts as exposure to it, and if they’ll pull it out of their meal it’s great first step to eventually eating it. • This can also work in reverse. If they only want the pasta from a casserole dish you made, let them pull it out and eat it. They’re more likely to keep eating other components once they try that “safe” food first. • Happy weekend!

Having teens is fun because they have so many dishes in their room it’s almost like having 2 kitchens.

What I say: Put on a coat, gloves and a hat, because it’s freezing outside, and you could get hypothermia. What my kids hear: Please dress for a tropical vacation to Tahiti.
