Old school beliefs sadly. But you’re kids know which parent they can rely on, count on, cry and laugh with and that’s what matters.
Totally understand that position. I love socialising and will always say yes to invites but for the last few years I’ve come to appreciate and need my alone time and not having to consider another person.
I don’t do at least one thing from each contributor. I have never paid the ‘voluntary’ school fees at my sons’ public school and yet my older one now goes to a private high school.
I let my then partner get a massage at nearby shops while I was induced and lying around then the contractions came on fast and bub was on his way. They used my phone to call him but he had the same name as our building supervisor so he got the call wondering what the nurse was talking about.Luckily my ex was actually just parking and walked in literally as baby came out.
I have an amazing mum who my sister and I have always been open with and we can tell her anything however as has been mentioned I’m one of those people who doesn’t like to burden her with the really crappy stuff. She’s had some hard moments in her life and I just don’t want to unload on her but the important thing is I know she’s there for me whenever I decide to open up. In the meantime I do have a sister and close girlfriend who get me through the really rough times. But like you I have sons and I hope they too know that they can tell me anything and I’ll always listen and help them get through difficult times just as you and your husband did.
What a vindictive person who only apologised (unconvincingly) because she was held accountable by the public and her employer.
