    Wait, Capri Sun? Yeah, we had those around when I was a kid, and we’d just grab one and drink it. The straw wrapper wasn’t an issue… although I probably left those lying around, and popsicle sticks.

    I was SO skinny in highschool and I damn near ate all the time. I had to. Strange… I honestly don’t recall anybody’s parents ever being the food police. But way back then hlicopters were still just flying things high up in the sky…

    Wait, saying a non parent can’t understand is a big no-no but being self proclaimed “second mommy” seems okay to you? That’s funny. I bet your sister loves that.

    @BMG you had a high metabolism and so did I but mine has slow down @kate like you said different families,different methods but I beleive in balance and portion. Over eating and not eating the right things can cause eating disorder. Ive seen the negative of,restricting junkfood from kids. It doesnt hurt to expose them to candy bars or my favs Debbie Snacks.

    @anonymousse I said ” just because we dont have kids doesnt mean we dont have experiences or can relate. I hate when parents say that shit.” A non parent CAN understand. And @kate yep,Capri Sun. Thats what I meant.

    Getting that straw into a Capri Sun takes mad skills.

    Some non parents can understand.
    I just think it’s funny that you take offense to that, but call yourself a second mommy.

    Well this was a fun read. I’m with anon in that I feel bad for the son. It sounds like his mom doesn’t like him and she’s choosing sex over him.

    The food convo is hilarious.

    What the fuck did I just read?

    Poor kid. Amazing he is so normal given his crazy town mother. A teenage boy eating everything in sight? Shocking. Absentminded? No way? Not neat? Always late? A teenager???? Get the fuck outta here.
    You resent your child. Can’t wait to get rid of him. You think your ex is beneath you because he isn’t a lawyer or doctor. And you’re delusional thinking you are still in a relationship, much less one that will lead to marriage. And you think you can somehow negotiate with a man who broke up with you to convince him into marrying you. Wow. Why would anyone want you?
    Maybe you should attend some of those therapy sessions you bought for your son.

    My kid is almost 6 feet tall and 200 lbs. He is not hurting for food. He has depression that he self-medicates with sugar. Sugar is not medicine and it comes with a nasty crash and then guilt and body shaming because he doesn’t have a six pack of abs.

    Door Unlocked- I came home from work numerous times to a pitch dark house and the door wide open. It’s scary. The police would leave business cards stating that my front door was wide open and they thought a crime was in progress. We lived in a “safe” neighborhood then. It’s not safe neighborhood now.

    So he does have an eating disorder…?

    Charlie, honestly, you are coming across really strange and not all there. Definitely emotionally distanced from your son. I don’t know what’s going on here, but it looks disturbing based on what you’ve written here.
