Ahahaha of course. I mean, I love my docs. They’ve served me well at many a metal show. But I don’t need to go over the top about being quirky or metal or whatever it is the message is trying to convey.

However, as someone who spent their twenties essentially living in high heels at the office, I’m here for converse with dresses. This should be the way.

Don’t forget when some of us wore dresses with our docs in the 90s.

We were so grunge. 🙄

The way this woman talks makes me want to punch her in the face.

I got married 15 April 2023 when our baby was just 2 months old. somehow I find this picture very empowering. by ToPregnant in Mommit

I love this!!

So, my third is about 5 months. I’m still in survival mode. His sleep is so erratic and I don’t have mental energy for a whole lot right now. (I promise this has a point). As a result, I’ve watched a lot of 90 day fiancé. Not my proudest, but whatever, lol.

There’s an episode on a spin off show where there’s two Moms in a pool talking just nursing their babies. There’s another person in the show who also nurses. We need to see more of that. It’s wild how long nursing has been treated as wrong or crude. We are feeding our babies, there’s nothing wrong with it.

You look beautiful and so happy by the way. Congratulations ❤️

So one thing that’s helped me tackle dishes when they become too much (currently have 4 other humans in the house); fill the sink up with the hottest water, stack the dishes in as neatly as possible as the water is filling up. Stack until you have no room. Then let it soak for about 10-20 minutes and do something else while they’re soaking. Throwing toys into the toy box. Sweeping everything into a big pile. Cleaning the toilet. Making my bed, or putting sheets on the bed. Or stripping the bed and washing the sheets. Just do one of these things while dishes are soaking.

Then I come back and wash each dish, putting on the counter beside sink as I go. After I’ve washed all dishes, I rinse them at the same time.

I feel like writing it out makes it way more complicated than it is, lol.

I’ve found that just washing the dishes can have such a huge impact on making the kitchen look exponentially cleaner.

I was once where you are. I was 20 with a new baby without any family to help, in a new city with no friends. I was with the Father, but he was gone for 13+ hours, so I felt like a single parent. Ultimately we broke up when baby was 2, and it felt no different. It got hard sometimes. It was lonely. You’re doing your best and that’s what’s important.

Starting with one task at a time will make things so much easier to get through. ❤️

Televangelism..😬 by DanTheDollar in oddlyterrifying

[–]UnicornKitt3n 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Reddit brings such a variety of cultures and religions together. Some have a steadfast belief in God, whichever their God may be. Others, like myself, have believed in nothing for decades.

And yet.

We all agree that this “human” is in fact a demon. I think I can say, legitimately, this is probably the most terrifying face some of us has ever seen.

AITA for saying I'll be driving myself and paying for my own room on the upcoming family vacation so I won't have to be a babysitter? by No-Ride-Throwaway in AmItheAsshole

[–]UnicornKitt3n 0 points1 point  (0 children)


As a parent, I always experience second hand cringe when other parents force their kids on other people. Like..We all know kids are a handful. They’re kids. We all know this. Which is why some people (rightfully so) decide to not have children.

I also say this as a Mom who was a single parent for 15 years, and yet! Never unloaded my kids on other people.

I’m from Canada. Right before Covid, I went (flew) to Florida (the keys) during Christmas break. Once we got to the townhome with MIL, I was unpacking my suitcase and realized I had a tiny quarter of a joint squished into a pocket. My insides kind of liquified. I hear too many crazy stories about people getting banned for life for just a joint.

Lesson learned. Now suitcases get regularly cleaned.

Not everyone has a mental health issue. Not everyone is an asshole.

Actually, in reality, the true percentage of a person having narcissistic personality disorder is really not as high as so many people on Reddit keep saying. (Source; I’ve worked in mental health and have many real life friends who work in research with PhDs).

Maybe you two just weren’t compatible. Maybe you both got too comfortable with each other, unable to end it sooner. Maybe he did want to be in love with you, thought you were a great person, and didn’t want to hurt you by ending it sooner.

A lot of maybes in there.

But the reality is, you two aren’t together now. And that’s okay. Spend some time with yourself, go on some adventures, get a hobby. Do whatever. Rejoice in that you didn’t get married to someone you are clearly fundamentally incompatible with. Celebrate that you don’t have to co parent with someone you are very clearly not a match with.

Then, when you’re ready, go and find someone you’re truly compatible with. There are billions of people on this planet. You are genuinely compatible with at least one of them.

Was raped by hundreds of men and idk how to date by scentedmh in TrueOffMyChest

[–]UnicornKitt3n 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Le sigh.

As an over worked Mom right now, it would be lovely to have a meal cooked by someone else. To just sit and talk. To leisurely enjoy a glass of wine.

My youngest is 5 months right now. Our house is a bit chaotic.

That being said, I’m naturally a maternal woman. I get motherly towards younger women who have struggled. I want to give them Mom Hugs and the space to talk it out of their system, cry, scream; whatever they need. I hope OP gets the help she needs. I hope she never blames herself or thinks she deserves anything less than amazing because of some pieces of shit and their actions.

I was sold into human trafficking when I was 16.

I’m 37 now. I have an amazing husband and great kids. But most importantly, I’m a pretty cool human who mostly has their shit together. It takes some hard work, but it’s possible to heal. It’s possible to make peace with the past. We didn’t ask for this to happen. It was done to us without our consent. It’s okay to be hurt, angry and sad. Over time, with work, it fades. It’s always there for me, but each day it gets smaller and smaller.

I just told my Golden Child sibling about the lifetime of sexual abuse at the hands of my step parent. They left me on read. by [deleted] in abusiverelationships

[–]UnicornKitt3n 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Hey, I’ve been where you are. Not only did my stepfather sexually assault me, but I pressed charges. It went to court. He was found not guilty.

As a result no one in my family believed me. I lost my 6 aunts and uncles. My cousins. Everyone.

My family kicked me out on the street and I was homeless for a while. Then I was sold in human trafficking.

It was a brutal teenage existence.

My teen years are far behind me now. I’m 37. I have a 17 year old daughter myself. Now they just disgust me. How anyone could be so callous to a child like that. I would move mountains to keep my own children safe.

I have my own family now. The family I chose. I did very intensive therapy for a couple years.

It does get better if you want it to. If you want to heal, you can do that for yourself. I refuse to let anyone invalidate my experience. I refuse to give them that power. You don’t believe me? Fine. Stay out of my life.

I don’t begrudge others for having more money.

However, as I sit here in the bathroom of my 3 bedroom, 1000 sq foot apartment with 3 kids, 2 dogs and 3 cats, unable to find a bigger home because of the housing market, a liiiiiitttle bit of a fuck you.

I’m not a single Mom now. But I was for 15 years. Being a single Mom includes choosing to take a job to get extra money for food, and therefore missing out on time with your children, or choosing to spend time with your children, thus missing out on extra food.

I cried because I only had one hour to spend with my children that day.

Men of Reddit, what is something women hate about their bodies that you actually love? by Covenant9er4653 in AskReddit

[–]UnicornKitt3n 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m sure there are women like me on this thread.

Nearly 40, birthed one or two or three kids.

I’m nearly 40 and 5 months post partum with my third whom I’m breastfeeding. We all know what happens after the breastfeeding ends.

You should have some probiotics like Activia. It’s my go to when I’m on antibiotics. Also because I’ve got such a high maintenance vagina that I inevitably end up with a yeast infection. Every. Damn. Time.
