    Lmao!!! Glad I haven't had to deal with that yet! Little girl is ten months in five days, is almost walking, and just broke 15lbs a week ago. Tiny and strong like mommy and daddy apparently!

    My oldest daughter will be 6 in Jan and my other is 2 1/2. This year was amazing because they really got it. We adopted a family to have the girls bring gifts to, and my oldest was moved by the whole process. She was so appreciative of everything this year and so excited. We have a lot of family that lives here, so Christmas and holidays tend to get crazy and way overboard, and we made a decision to scale it down this year and it was the best decision ever.

    What it's all about right here.

    Christmas, my wife and other daughter were sunbathing. Probably one of my favorite pictures ever.

    Not sure what that means but sounds like some admission of guilt/irresponsiblity and her actions would seem justifiable. Hindsight is always 20/20 so take what you've learned and improve. The damage is done so unless marriage counseling is an option, I'm not sure what I can offer except to join the commiserating. Tough stuff my brother. I wish you the best. Really, I do.

    This is where my mind was 100% when I read that. The situation is terrible, but it sounds like you know it might have been coming based on the response. We all make mistakes, but they are compounded by a million when children are involved.

    Such a hard thing to deal with I'm sure. It's harder for kids then it is for adults though. Kids need their parents, brother if there is anything you can do to yourself to make your family work I encourage you to try. See a counselor on your own if she won't go with you. Show her your family is important and that you're sorry.

    Whatever is possible I would do.

    Sorry to hear than man

    My little girl is nearly 11months... shes still not consistent with sleeping through, sometimes it might be one every two weeks or a couple of days in a row... But never has she done it for a good amount of time i.e. a week or more.

    Cant wait to be able to sleep again. But i could never imagine life without her now.

I know it's an issue with her getting used to a new sleep cycle but am hoping it happens soon!
    Just found this thread, great idea nick.

    As far as getting her sleep better, the thing we did with both of my kids and it's worked for a lot of our friends with their children is giving them a warm bath right before bed time and try to make it as close to the same time at night as possible. And if you have lotion to use after with lavender, works wonders. Both of my kids started sleeping through the night after a few nights of getting into this routine. From 3 weeks old on they have been rock solid sleepers ever since.

    I have that with my SIL as well. Her kids fall asleep anywhere between 4 and 6 p.m., she doesn't believe in naps even though her kids aren't even 5 yet, they wake up at 4:30 or 5 a.m. everyday and she says she can't stand how early they wake. Unfortunately she just doesn't get it. And the really bad part is that because she is such a lax parent and doesn't feel that her children need to be watched all the time, she has poison control on speed dial, and they know her and her son by name. Her daughter has also had 4 broken bones so far. Drives me nuts because she's a self righteous b!tch and thinks she's the best mom in the world because she doesn't allow her kids to eat sugar. Grrrrrr.....

    We went with preschool/daycare due to the social aspect and the learning curve that preschools provide. It's definitely very hard dropping them off the first few times, or in my wifes case weeks. It really does help with seperation anxiety and making sure your child can let you leave. It's also a starting point for self reliance in my opinion. Preschool has made a huge difference in my kids though. My daughter met all of the kindergarten entry requirements just before her 4th birthday. And my son who will 2 in March has moved up to the next class room, is reciting letters to us, and has far better social skills than his 3 1/2 year old cousin who has been at home with mom since birth. Can't say enough good things about good quality daycare.

    Whoa, while I don't want to pass judgement based on a post alone, that sounds like a real situation and possible neglect.

    All of this x1000. It is so important and makes such a difference when kids get into daycare/preschool early when it comes to social development and groundwork for learning. We have a couple of friends that don't believe in this and it is remarkable to see how far behind their children are in basic interaction, conflict resolution, and general fearfulness of talking to others. It is difficult to find quality care and it takes a lot of homework and research, but when you do, it pays off incredibly.

    No doubt. Our daycare/preschool1 is awesome. There is only one other around here that is slightly better, and that's because they include swin lessons as part of there lesson plan, but good lord do you pay for it! I'm so glad my kids are in a quality preschool. It's piece of mind knowing we're solidifying their futures. Plus, when they're out and going to school, and you don't have to pay for child care anymore it's like getting a huge raise. :-)

    Our family has their concerns. It doesn't help that she's not exactly the brightest bulb on the chandelier either.

    Yeah, our preschool has swim lessons, but it is included in the price and so worth it. I thought for sure once my daughter moved into Kindergarten that I was going to see all this extra money and then that just shifted into enrichment programs, karate comp team, swim team, soccer, etc...

    I've given up on ever having that money again. LOL

    My daughter is 4 1/2 and asks constantly to stay in our bed. We have a California king and when we give in and let her sleep in our bed, despite ALL that room, she still manages to either lay on top of one of us, or hit and kick the crap out of her daddy during her dreams. Her grand parents just bought a full size bed, so even though it's short for me, I go in and sleep there to get some peace and quiet.

    Not really my business but I'll comment anyway...
    The longer you allow her to sleep in your bed, the harder it will be to break. Who's in charge? The adult or the child?

    It's a rare occurance. We don't give in, we make it a reward. Sometimes on weekends, or when I'm away for business or volleyball, she's there with my wife. But it doesn't stop her from asking constantly, we just give her goals to shoot for with behavior or things she can do at school to earn spending the night in our bed, and if she meets them she earns that reward. Besides, she's way too adorable to so no to all of the time.

    Great idea! And I say who cares! Especially at that age. When she's a year or two older and it's no longer age appropriate, put your foot down. But until then, enjoy those precious moments. They only last a short while!

    Eh...be careful. Saying yes to a 5 year old quickly turns into saying yes to a 12 year old. As a high school teacher, I am often the first to say no to a 14 year old. The tantrum is the same. People tend to say yes for the instant pacification without regard to the long term unintended negative outcomes.

    We're not those parents though. We pick our battles, but we don't cave. My wife is a former Marine, and I'm a firm believer in strict but loving parenting. We've seen those kids and parents that make you cringe. We agreed together a long time ago that our kids would absolutely not be brats.

    Same here! And I had a Marine father that was a great role model for me. Strict when he had to but always loving. Even he says don't fight it when it comes to little kids in bed. Now of course that's not unrestricted, but there's definitely a time to ease up and just enjoy!

    Hard to say no that face sometimes. Or to my wife either for that matter.

    My wife and I battle about that **** constantly, she asks him nicely if he wants to do something and he'll laugh and run off. Me I put a little bass in my voice and give him an order he responds usually

    Definitely need to have a stern side with children. A major way for them to learn respect. On the other side of parenting, I love being a major goofball with them. Making them laugh is the best part of everyday. I was dropping my kids off at preschool the other day and was goofing around with them before I left and one of the moms asked me why her husband couldn't be more fun with their kids like I was. She said he was too worried about people thinking something wrong about him. I'm sorry but your kids grow up so fast, you should enjoy every moment. I sing kidz bop songs at the top of my lungs with my daughter in the car and get funny looks from other drivers. I don't care though, my daughter thinks it's so much fun when we do that.

    That is just plain weird. As a man, why would you ever care or think about your image when it comes to your kids. If that guy had any idea how insecure and lame he is presenting himself to his family, he'd probably think twice.

    And the sad part is that this mom, his wife, is a little hottie. Another case of "what was she thinking?". Although I'm pretty sure he's got money so that would explain some.

    Which I will never, ever grasp. I make nice money that allows us to live a good life, but that would never matter to myself or my wife if I were not a great father and pretty darn good husband first and foremost. She would never be with me and I wouldn't be able to live with myself. As I am a father of two beautiful little girls now, little irritates me more than to see guys (including my own friends) that are hands off and are not a major part of their kids daily lives.
