Depends on how long the person evaluating you has been practicing. At least 2 years by any measure, though.

Hi all. Solo parent here and thinking about the holidays. Kiddo & I feel kinda isolated, and I was thinking about hosting a holiday gathering with some families we know. Issue: we have a smallish house with a dining table that will seat 6 and a couple of barstools. House is setup such that living and dining are downstairs; second living room and all bedrooms up. Don't want to do a formal sit down bc I don't feel like we know ppl that well. Thoughts? Recs for a service that can help me "host"?

Hi, I am a single-parent with a 9 year old daughter. Is anyone else dealing with same gender sleepovers with sexual exploration occurring? Exploring as in my daughter says outright “I am going to kiss you,” to her bestie before bed. Then after 15 minutes of giggling in bed I go to tell them to be quiet and see my daughter’s bestie is showing her buttcheeks to my daughter. To top it off they start trying to tell me they are laughing because they are reading “belly laugh books for kids”. Help.

Where can I get good and affordable baby clothes 0-3 months?

I have really been working on myself to start dating and I met someone who seemed pretty cool, but within two dates dropped some massive baggage. His ex was pregnant and it turned out after it was born he found out it wasn’t his. I feel like he hasn’t really dealt with it, and he’s made some really uncomfortable comments about women that are slowly waving red flags, even though he doesn’t say anything directly about me. Would you have a conversation or run?
