@salcy I’m no fan of Alexander and their relationship has red flags throughout its life - but - I don’t recall that he was sleeping with her sister?? Is that correct?
@mamamia-user-228828311 how can you cheer someone on who took advantage of people and stole millions of their savings?
There are 9 seperate children claiming he had touched them appropriately. That’s a significant number, I don’t understand how he could potentially be dropped from all of these charges. Does anyone else think something is missing here or that it’s a bit strange?
@cat I can see why. Totally the same for me and almost every other mother I know. It's like this unspoken truth that no-one tells you about in case it makes you seem ungrateful for their children.
I think this applies to well past the first year, depending on if and when any other children arrive.
I used a lot of go-to products during my pregnancies as I know they had no nasties in them. They’re smell amazing, are reasonably priced, but as someone now nearing 40, I don’t find they have the ‘punch’ I need for my skin compared to other products. Back in my 20s and early 30s where my skin needed less ‘work’, would have been happy to keep using them.
@kathp so if he didn’t have daughters, because he is a man, he couldn’t imagine how this might be wrong?
@johanna77 it was depressing but at the same time, I don’t see how this article would do anyone a service.
Unfortunately it really is the worst possible time to try and pursued free childcare. We have gone into record debt levels to keep things afloat during the pandemic, and it’s not even close to over.
@rush I didn’t take it as a judgement at all and totally understood the context behind how you used it.
@cat I am literally using a word from Rush’s response. She used oversharer, so I used it in reference back to her comment. Not everything is an attack.
To add to the ‘humble brag’ claim - a 2 year old isn’t exactly at school, is she? It’s essentially daycare at home.
@cat I can think of a lot of reasons not to. Communicating with millions of strangers as it’s happening is very different to reaching out to family and friends when dealing with grief. Hence the curiosity.
@rush yea the oversharer theory seems to make sense. I think SM definitely enhances what's already there, as does money.
@rush I think the more interesting thing is the timing - for example, when driving him home, she tweeted the heartbreaking line about driving home without her baby, how can this be real...
@laura__palmer they sure do - I think this will just help them go in under false pretences. And sadly make even more people feel unsafe.
I feel JK Rowling’s comments have been blown so far out of proportion, as is often the case these days.
@laura__palmer this here is the problem. I’ve worked with/for shore boys. Some were lovely, some were d***s, and every single one was privileged. They’d never applied for a job on seek or sat through a panel interview.
