    Okay so I sent in the MLB article and I am a HUGE sports fan, love them, can’t get enough of them. Whatever. But this is so royally fucked up. To punish a Dad, and player for taking the 3 days that are given, for him to see the birth of his child, is just so so so messed up. This guy literally suggested that the player was selfish and should have scheduled a c-section before the season so he wouldn’t have to miss anything. It makes me irrationally mad. And his reason was like “the guy needs to work to support his kid’s education” blah blah blah. Okay, dumb. Baseball players are the most well played athletes. One year of this guys contract would have his whole family set for life.

      Yup. I felt the same way. I get all ragey thinking about the suggestion of doing a medically unnecessary C-section for fucking sports. Of for anyone for any job. PERIOD. Plus he took 3 days off. NOTHING. UGH.

        Not to mention that they’ve been finding evidence that scheduling C-sections early is having a detrimental effect on baby’s health. For people who want to schedule C-sections, doctors are now pushing them to wait till 40 weeks.

        Personally, I’d be super scared to schedule anything that makes the baby come early – either a C-section or an induction. We just don’t know enough about the whole process to know if it’s safe. When my son was born, he was 10 days late, and they kept pushing and pushing to induce. So glad I said no, because the birth was so fast and easy and he’s super healthy. He just now had his first sniffle, and he’s almost 11 months old. Maybe he would have been fine even with the induction, but why take the chance? Especially for a stupid game. Fuck this idiot.

      I came here just to comment on that article too. It seems like no matter how far we’ve come in terms of “father, not just provider” mentality regarding men with kids, there are still people who think it would be ok for a guy to walk in the hospital room, take his new-born baby in his arm, and then 5 minutes later say “ok darling, gotta go back playing baseball, text your mom or the nanny if you need help with anything!”

      I thought a two-week paternity leave was the bare minimum, but then some people think three days is too long. Really dude ? Glad I’m not your kid.

        That’s literally what the guy said! One of his points was that this guy has enough money and nannies that the mom won’t be left without support. Um yep, because there’s no way a guy could actually want to help out his wife with a new baby.

        Or that a father should bond with his baby. Yes, a new father can be a huge support to his wife (mine was amazing) but those first days getting to know your new baby, you can’t get those back. Ever. I am so, so grateful for my husband being able to take 9 months paternity leave with E and he’ll take it again with the new baby. It has made such a huge difference in how E has turned out.

    The relationship article (“8 Signs You’re In The Right Relationship”) reminded me of something terrifying. So like, gf and I have planned our fake wedding. It’s in Northern California, and we each get either no guests or one guest. I’m trying to talk her up to two guests apiece. (I have a best friend from college and a best friend from grade school/high school, and I’d like them both to be there.) I was mentioning her closest friend from grad school/work, and how she should be invited. And gf said something like “No, one guest each, and besides, how is she going to fly out to California with a toddler?” And I was like “What do you think this timeline is, anyway?!” (Her son is like 7 months old and I am NOT trying to get married in the next few years. Like, the idea sounds terrifying.) Turns out, gf considers anyone below kindergarten age to be a todder. So, still, gf’s timeline on this stuff is the next five-ish years. And it’s exciting and also terrifying.
    .
    So, yeah. Ish is getting real in my relationship. When did I become an adult, you guys?

        I think the point is with the one-guest rule the child won’t be coming. So not “how is she going to fly with a toddler (also on the plane)” but “how is she going to fly with a toddler (i.e. has a child to take care of). I could be wrong though!

        Gf was mostly grasping at straws to keep to the one-guest limit. The kid in question has already flown across the country as an infant. And besides, my friend’s wife would come with my friend (and skip the ceremony–she’s already offered this) and she could totally babysit for gf’s friend.

        Christy April 4, 2014, 3:41 pm

        Long story short, gf’s mother passed away, and if gf can’t have her there, she wouldn’t want anyone (particularly from her family) there. And she wouldn’t want my family there either, because it would remind her that her mother wasn’t there. All I really care about is the getting married part, I can compromise on the rest. I would like to have our witnesses be people we know, though, hence the guest apiece.
        .
        And we’ve already planned the post-wedding parties. The default location is the MD Zoo for my side, and somewhere in CA for her side. So we’d still celebrate with our families.

        Hmm I think it’s kind of sad that she has that attitude. I mean when you get married you’re joining two families, so it would be nice if she had the outlook that she’s gaining a family, not focusing on the family she has lost. I’m bummed for you. I can’t imagine anyone telling me I couldn’t invite my parents to my wedding, I know they would be crushed too (although maybe the next time around they’ll be like whateva hoe you had your shot, haha).

        Yes, I totally agree. She is going to miss her mother during the entire wedding process and remember she isn’t there through it all. It seems selfish to forbid your parents from coming.

        Christy April 4, 2014, 4:31 pm

        First, lol at your description of your parents.
        .
        And it doesn’t phase me anymore, honestly. Like, thinking about actually having the wedding ceremony, it seems like such an intimate thing that I can barely imagine having anyone there. I’d always pictured having like 200 people at my wedding (always pictured a dude too) and clearly that would never happen with gf. She also doesn’t like crowds. And like, there seems to be a lot with big weddings that I don’t want to deal with. I honestly think that I could get her to compromise up to about a 20-person wedding, but honestly I don’t think either of us would be happy with it. And if we had a bigger wedding it would have to be in California because she has more non-traveling family members. And like, I never pictured making all my people fly across the country either.
        .
        Whatever wedding we had and whatever wedding planning we had would be complicated by geography and emotions about people not being able to be there. (Plus there’s the lingering gay-marriage issue in my family that I get to avoid.) So by eloping without family there we get to avoid those issues. Plus, I’m winning anyway because I get to marry her. And I wouldn’t want to make her miss her mom more by having my whole motley family there with her mom very absent. She already does enough with my family.
        .
        I appreciate y’all standing up for me in this. For me, it mostly boils down to (1) simpler wedding and avoiding the gay-marriage issue, including no complicated travel for my side to get there, (2) I still get my big blowout party with my family and friends over here, and (3) the getting married part so trumps the wanting guests part.

        Oh, and my parents have been warned about the eloping. My dad was sad when he realized he wouldn’t walk me down the aisle, but he cheered up somewhat at the idea of a father-daughter dance. (And at the money he’d save without paying for my wedding. My stepbrother’s wedding is traumatizing him.) And my mom doesn’t give a shit, in the best and most supportive way possible.

        Just want to say, the “party” part is the stressful part (in my experience). Planning the ceremony was a breeze. So, by just having “big blow out parties to celebrate” you’re not really going to get out of any of the hassle of wedding planning. A big party is a big party wither it’s to celebrate a marriage, a baby, or Arbor Day…it’s all the same work.

        And money too. A big party is going to cost close to a wedding. Obviously, what ever works for the two of you is the route you should go, I just think the mentality of elope and have a party later to save money and stress is misguided.

        Christy April 4, 2014, 5:10 pm

        Oh I’m with you, gg. My dad is the one celebrating the saved money, not me. And the biggest wedding hassle would be getting everyone to the same side of the country for the ceremony, which we avoid with the two parties. And gf’s big hang-ups are about the ceremony, not the party, so we’re avoiding that bit.

Last time they came into town on a Thursday (this fall) and left Friday am because they needed to be in Florida to catch a cruise on a certain day. But this time I’m not sure if there’s a time crunch for them getting home or if they’re just gradually making their way back. And it’s a Friday. My plan is to try to convince them to stay until at least Sunday morning because then we can go to an avs game or maybe some breweries tomorrow or something fun.

    I didn’t read the toddler article in super detail, but it seemed really negative over all. maybe 5 of the 25 points where “good”. IDK, I think I’m over all these liscticles and “what you’re doing wrong with potty training” and crap. A friend posted an article on fb today about how you shouldn’t have water bottles in cars because if you get in an accident it could become a projectile at your baby. My head was spinning reading it. I can’t drink water in the car now? Ugh, I guess I’m tired of people having so many opinions on how other people raise their kids. So long as they are healthy and not abused, who cares?

        Love it! As we get closer to having kids, and the more I think about parenting ideas…I’m thinking no one knows what’s “right”. You have to do what feel right to you, your partner, and your kid and hope for the best. And it’s probably going to turn out just fine.

        I feel the same way. There are obviously certain things that are non-negotiables (like not hitting your kids and stuff), but generally anyone who says their way is the only way automatically gets ignored by me. I think parenting will be one of those things where you just keep trying new things until you find what works for your family and your kid.

It’s how I can leave the house so quick with a toddler, I have everything I need back there. I also have his car seat on the side seat so I don’t have to crawl into the middle to put him in. I got reamed by another parent on how I was prioritizing my convenience over his safety because he is worse off if I get t-boned.

        Well, what do you do when there are two kids? They both can’t be in the middle!

        Soooo, tell me how crazy this is: when I was deciding on which side to put the carseat on, I could only think if I pick the driver side, then she will die with me if we get t-boned. If I pick the other side, I could die, but she will live, or vice versa. I’m still not sure which is the better side, so for way too long, I would switch it daily, because I have issues.

        Passenger side. So you can reach back more easily and when they are forward facing you can see each other. At least that is my reasoning. But my kids have been out of car seats for awhile. In fact, my soon-to-be 14 year old (oy vey!) has sit in the front next to me for over two years.

        Haha, I finally decided on passenger for pretty much the same reason. Its weird having them in the front, right? Its weird to me at least.

        This same friend posts a ton of articles about car seats. It’s overwhelming.

      I thought the toddler article was pretty silly. Just basically saying toddlers are insane and unpredictable but also amazing and hilarious. But yeh, I think that people get a little insane about safety and I also think that the same people need to get a hobby outside of parenting and focus on some other stuff.

        Yeah, I agree about the article. It read like it was over-the-top, and meant with love. I really liked the writing style actually, I might have to come back to that site.

        The insane about safety thing is based on fear. One of my best friends has a friend whose 6-month-old died in a car accident. After I heard that, I was a wreck. I can’t even imagine getting into an accident, and 2 seconds later my little one’s just, gone. I try not to agonize over it, and I definitely don’t want to be overprotective, but when I take him in the car I do think about that kind of thing. I only let him have soft toys, and I make sure there’s nothing that could fly around the car. I do have drinks in the front seat though, because it seems exceedingly unlikely to me that it would fly out, go backwards, get past his chair, and then fly forwards again to hit him (he’s still facing backwards). But anyway, my point is, I feel sorry for those people who are super wound up about safety. I know where they’re coming from and it’s a scary place.

    On the social awkward article… I’ve been thinking a lot of this dynamic I have with my dad. He likes to tease me until I get upset and then laugh and say I’m “too sensitive.” Which pisses me off royally. But after reading that article I started thinking about how by doing what he does he has socialized me to not trust my emotions and instincts. I have been sexually assaulted several times. Correlation doesn’t mean causation but still, this is not okay. Luckily my husband also agrees that what my dad does is fucked and bordering on emotional abuse even if my dad isn’t intentionally wanting to hurt. It makes me really want to teach my kids to trust their feelings.

      So my work is blocking that article so I can’t read it…but I’m sorry you were sexually assaulted. I agree that kids need to trust their feelings. I hate the “stop being sensitive” or “you can’t take a joke”. Most of the times people aren’t being *overly* sensitive, the person who hurt their feelings is just trying to cover their own ass and not look like a jerk. So that sucks.

      Related-Lil was crying about something one night, just being kinda hysterical over nothing (can’t remember what exactly) and I was cranky and just said something like ‘enough, there’s nothing for you to be crying about, pull yourself together.’ And she went OFF on me about saying that and how her emotions are her’s and she can cry if she wants to, etc. I felt like such an asshole, and also impressed she would even know to say/think that.

    My cat should be a banker. I can see that. He’s very distinguished and would look good in a suit.

        Mine should be the next famous internet cat. I’m not sure why, I don’t think she’d like being famous. Plus she doesn’t really do anything funny, she’s just a regular cat that can be kind prissy.

        That’s because I’m not a cat person like you guys. I have 2 actually, but they are really Lil’s and Peter takes care of them and they don’t like me so actually I don’t, but they do haha.

        Did you know there really are drug dealing cats? I heard people have trained them to bring drugs to people in prison or something.

    ok, i did the quiz for both of my cats.
    .
    zoe should be internet famous. which i could see, because she is eccentric and emotional enough to match any celebrity out there.
    .
    leo should be a business cat, which i do not think is accurate at all.

    Okay, Lucy got baker and Maddy got pro soccer player. I think the logic is in the .gif at the end…they both tend to do what the cat in the .gif is doing? (Also, I totally ignored my poor third cat because he doesn’t really have a personality other than timid 🙁 )
