  1. My favorite fun, light and fluffy book is Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Cruise. I giggle through the whole thing.
  2. Not kid friendly, but I love the song “F**king Perfect†by Pink. My favorite line is: You're so mean when you talk about yourself, you were wrong Change the voices in your head make them like you instead
  3. My aunts husband kept her isolated and on a very limited budget, telling her that they couldn’t afford more than $75 per week for groceries and there was no money for vacations, car repairs, new clothes for the kids, ect. He also claimed that he did not receive any raises in salary for years and that their only asset was the house. My aunt believed him. When they divorced she found a budget attorney because there was no money, my aunt had been a stay at home mom for 15 years and no recent job skills and a very limited support system. The divorce went through, she got $75 per week in child support. About 6 months after the divorce, her now ex-husband took the kids to help with yard work at his rental property. He owned 6 houses that were rentals and had a very nice retirement portfolio. My aunt did not believe the kids and did not pursue the issue. When the last kid was in high school the ex-husband came clean and admitted that he had substantial resources and did not feel bad about leaving her with next to nothing. Today he is retired and he and his wife travel extensively. My aunt has no retirement.

  5. I have a strict policy of never loaning books, to the point that if someone wants to read one of my books, I go buy them their own copies.
  6. My son has had a gtube since he was 6 months old. Best. thing. ever. Once he was crawling, I could put his feeds in a back pack with his pump and he could crawl and still get fed. In the car I just hung the feeding bags from the hook over the window using baby linking rings. Life was better once we were able to do slow, steady feeds as my son was never able to tolerate rapid boluses.
  7. I've noticed that a lot of pediatric specialist run very late. I now pack a lunch and snacks in a addition to things to do.
  8. A day in a box. Plan a special day and include gift cards to all the activities and a few dollars for souvenirs.
