The kids have no consistent person to step in when I'm not around and all of the housework still falls on me. If you work full time do you have a nanny? Au pair? I don't know if we can afford this but I'm so overwhelmed.

    submit a claim. So I take the kids to the dentist, pay and exhaust gets the check. He doesn't give me a dime. Fine. Twice a year cleaning so I'm not going to battle over it. But now ds needs braces for a whopping 5900 dollars. I think it will be friggin bullshit that I will pay and he will get a check. I'm tempted to not put through insurance and just pay because he is VERY uncooperative. He won't give me a dime and all I asked was he split it with me not even pay in full as he's supposed to. The heck do I do?

      ask for a credit card he pays for those items. Or get the kids their own card. No fucking way you should be paying for medical or any other expense he's responsible for.

    When girls make plans (or is like the 4th person asked to do something). She’s friendly with everyone when everyone is in a group, but no one makes plans w her. When we do it’s hit or miss. I feel really bad—she left behind a tight knit group of bffs where she felt like she belonged. Now she feels like it’s too late.
