    loves me and doesn't ask anything of me, or hit me when I do something he doesn't like. Well, a friend found out about emo affair, but doesn't know about dh and basically spent 10 minutes calling me a whore and a slut and told me my dh doesn't deserve me. kind of feel like the two of them belong together.

She does want kids, and she knows I am down for one more (and she claims thats fine) but I need to see her want more and accept as adults with kids, i can never have that honeymoon phase with her. And if we have another kid, thats it... 18 years. I resigned myself to that almost 6 years ago, you know? This is my life.

I have to force myself to remember how important things were to me when they were toddlers because in the big picture 10 years later, it didn't matter so much if I didn't give her a bath every night or read to her for no less than 45 minutes before bed. If this situation with your current gf doesn't work out, I'd try again with someone that has younger kids and is right there in it with you. They'll get why all these little things are such a huge deal.

                  seriously. She seems to think it is all "whatever" or cool or casual. When to me it isn't. She is just shrugging to "ok" when i discuss meeting them. She isn't young. At least, not in my book. She is a grown woman.

Today he calls to say that she can make it, but that I should make a separate one without sugar for my sister. Come on, you have the eggs and flour out! Just make it! I do bang up meals for my family all the time, always insist they should bring nothing. The only time I have been to their house is when i helped them move in. Just make the damn batter.

It isn't hard for anybody, nobody complains about it, and I am fine about it being at my house. I don't even mind making the batter. I am just amazed that she can actually find making some batter enough of a blip on the radar to worry that she will be too tired to manage it. That's all.
