Inappropriate kid behavior?
I picked up my 4.5 year old daughter from after care at school today. Her and another boy she is friends with (age 6) were the only ones left . I noticed her shirt off and they were both in a tunnel. His shirt was on. When she came out she was putting on her shirt and it was backwards. She told me later they were playing a game called “shower” and she needed to take her shirt off and he would come chase her in the “shower” and whoever hugged each other the tightest won. All of this seems extremely in appropriate to me and I was wondering why they weren’t monitored more closely. I realize they were both in a tunnel so couldn’t be seen but am I overreacting to be super upset with the teacher, and want them to monitor these types of “games” at that age? What would you do if this was your daughter? I don’t know whose idea the game was hers/his/collaboration. Edit: should I be concerned? What should I do? Anything?
I hate the person I’ve become after having my son
Overstimulated•Exhausted•Anxious Those 3 words describe me 24/7 despite of getting adequate rest, self-care, and time alone. Even when I go to work, I am an absolute spaz and my brain is mush. I can’t seem to relax…EVER. I honestly don’t feel like a human being anymore. I don’t enjoy anything! I started running a few months ago and am training for a half marathon now, but despite exercise, I am still just a condensed ball of nothing, but anxiety. I hate when my cat, dog, or even husband touch me in any way. Quite honestly, I hate when anything touches me. When I accidentally bump into something I immediately get angry and often times SCREAM. I’m LOSING my mind. Just venting here because I feel so helpless. Can anyone relate? FYI: I love my son ❤️ He’s the sweetest little man (19 months old) and I melt when he calls me mama or hugs me tightly.
You're not being subtle my dude
Staying with a friend's husband for a work thing in another city and he started talking about how he's sooooo stressed and needs a massage. I was like yeah do it! I had my first one post partum and it was amazing! But no, he doesn't want a stranger touching him. Fine, how about asking your wife? No she's pregnant and her back hurts. Fine, how about your cousin who lives next door? No he's a dude that would be weird. You're not being subtle friend! And there is absolutely no way on god's green Earth I am ever giving you a massage.

My partner says we shouldn’t pick up our 4mo when he cries going to sleep at night.
I’m not one to rush in immediately every time, but after a few minutes I go in and give him his pacifier, rub his back, etc. and if that isn’t working I pick him up. My partner says we shouldn’t do that, because then he expects we will pick him up. I say that he should expect that we pick him up. Can anyone weigh in?
3 month old rolled onto his stomach and got his leg stuck through the crib bar
It’s not an old crib, it’s a relatively new Stokke Sleepi crib. He sleeps in an Ollie swaddle with both of his arms out- basically a sleep sack. I’m sorry for the brevity I am freaking out ☹️ what do we do? Toss the crib? How do I stop this from happening again? He looked wedged on his stomach. This is a SIDS risk right??
my son's jaw was broken at school
My 14 year old was getting picked on and punched the boy, that boy broke his jaw in return. Apparently this kid has been picking on him all year and he was kicking him during PE and my son said he just snapped and punched him. The other kid punched him and broke his jaw. We have to see a plastic surgeon tomorrow. I can't sleep and am so stressed. On top of this the school called me after it happened and said he had blood in his mouth but was sitting in ISS and never even got evaluated by the nurse. She was gonna keep him in there for the rest of the day but I went to get him instead to try to figure out what happened because this was totally out of character for him so I knew something was up. It's late so I can't do anything right now I just feel so helpless....
Hand, foot & mouth timeline in adults?
After a lovely schoolmate’s birthday party at an indoor playground a majority of my sons class came down with hand, foot & mouth. It hit my one year old next and then came for me this week. I had a nasty sore throat day 1 morning followed by a fever day 1 night. Day 2 was the same. Day 3 I woke up at 3am because it felt like my hands and feet were on fire. Checked them in the light and saw spots everywhere. By lunchtime I was crawling on the floor unable to walk because it feels like shards of glass in my feet. It is currently late night of day 3 and I feel some bumps developing on my chin. How much worse will this get? Any anecdotal experiences with a timeline? I know I just have to ride it out but having an idea of what to expect the next few days would help!
New Parent Blues
My wife and I just had twins boys. While I am elated about having sons, I am experiencing unexpected feelings of anxiety, being scared and semi regret. It seems like I am the only person I know feeling anything besides pure joy and life fulfillment which makes me feel extremely guilty. I am 30, happily married, with a good job and great support system, so it's not like I have it "bad" or anything like that. I just wonder if these thoughts are normal or if I am just a bad parent. I plan on talking to my therapist about this on Friday, but for now, I have you all as my muses lol.
Bromos, I need some non creepy “how to make friends” advice.
So our neighbors seem like really cool people. We speak in passing and recently my partner did a nice gesture and helped them fix something in their yard. They brought over a gift basket to thank us. I kind of felt like we should invite them in but it was super hectic evening routine with kids and dogs. Anyways. We are both kind of weirdo introverts but we want to hang with them! How the heck do I ask them to hang out with us? Any ideas?
Protein powder that doesn’t taste like I’d rather be unhealthy
I know this is a bit far afield but I’m trying to get more protein into my diet and wondering if any bromos have a recommendation for a protein powder that doesn’t taste like death in a jar? I bought some organic protein powder and I can’t. I’d rather eat nothing that eat that.
