The only face swap is mine. In my head I'm a hotter version of me not the makeup free, zit cream and pulled back-hair reality. My husband really does love me. LOL.

Just because your brother in law who I assume is your husband's brother is a dad like that doesn't mean your husband is the same. It also doesn't mean that being raised in the same household, that their experiences were the same

 It's possible your husband was chastised or ridiculed. He may also be more introverted and therefore more self conscious. You drawing attention to it makes it worse. It sounds as if you believe there is a right way to parent and it's your way. Unless he is being outright abusive or negligent leave him to do this his way.

I have extremely oily skin and these foundations do nothing for me. The best ones I've used are Too Faced Peach Perfect, Born this Way Matte and the new Nars  Soft Matte. Plus a good powder like Nikkia Joy's setting powder.

This applies to many other relationships/ areas of life. We dream/ envision the future and when things don't follow the plan or vision we grieve the loss as if it were real when in reality it was our image of how things are or the hope of how things will be.

Affairs are never one-sided there are always two people complicit. Unfortunately many others suffer the consequences.

I had mine before I turned 30 but I only had 2. While I'm glad to be now in my 40's with adult children I still have the "what ifs" What if we had gone for another, what if we had waited till we  were a little older, what if we had enjoyed our youth more..... The problem is "what if" is a neverending game with no winners. You make your choices based on what you know then and you learn as you go.

@rush Right? We all question why Kyle and Jackie O get paid so much for so little.

I had a fringe for years that I grew out 3 years ago. I found curtain bangs way more maintenance and harder to style than a full fringe and cut it back in November last year. I have oily hair and a cowlick but with good blow-drying and straightening techniques and frequent washing it's easier to look "done" I frequently get comments on my perfect bangs ;)

 I have very oily skin which means I have an oily scalp. I wash my hair every day with mild shampoos and conditioners. You don't want to over do the clarifying or the conditioner. I have tried to push it out to every second day and it's not pretty and resulted in worse problems so every day it is.

Her skin is very obviously sun damaged.

He took something from you. He took something from himself too he just doesn't realise it. His actions have made him a rapist. His honour, his word, his trustworthiness all gone. You both lost something but only one of you is paying the price. Please don't stay silent for his sake he needs to understand what he did. He doesn't need protection but to be accountable.

I'm not sure when it became compulsory to have birthday parties for every birthday. I didn't have one every year and my kids didn't either. We made the day special as a family and they could invite a friend. Dinner was birthday person's choice and that has continued into adulthood. I enjoyed making sure they times we had parties memorable with themes, interesting food and games. By making them infrequent made them more special and lessened the cost and stress overall.

If bubs is sleeping through the night and you are breastfeeding for the love of God don't wake them to feed. Yes your boobs may resemble concrete implants but eventually your supply will settle. When they wake get dad to change them while you jump in the shower and let the warm water help relieve some of the excess pressure (express some milk) It will soften them and make it easier to latch and feed. Also make sure you burp bubs properly after this feed.

Did she buy it from Honey Birdette??

Very funny. But can we remember that many editor's are women who are still requesting this narrative because it sells. If we want change then we all need to play our part.

I don't watch this train-wreck  they call a television show but I always read these recaps because 'hilarious'!

@pippa I have to agree. I'm glad I got married young, before all my friends and before social media. I just wanted to get married to my then boyfriend. I really didn't care much about where, what I wore or whether other people were going to judge my choices. The only drama was the cake which was fixed before the day. Still married to my awesome man 28 years later. The wedding is not a big deal but the marriage is.

This relationship was over long before the cheating took place. Neither one wanted to admit it.

I can't wait till I hear a child refer to their "gestational parent" and"non gestational parent" in the playground. I'm sorry but we are mothers and fathers. Do we refer to adopted parents as "non gestational"? It's ridiculous.

I don't put my education, DOB or anything else that might hint at my age on my resume. Unfortunately this is problematic as most employers use a program to weed out the best prospects for vacant positions and it looks for these exact things. Most jobs require you to fill out an online form that wants dates for these things plus dates for past jobs. I get why but now that I'm "middle aged"(I hate that term) employers are going to see that and put me in the "too old" pile before meeting me. You are damned if you do and damned if you don't.
