My son gave me a book for Christmas one year called ‘Your Mother’s Story - Mom, I want to know everything about you.’It’s essentially a journal. Each page has a question for ‘Mom’ and blank lines to write her answer. My family is all about traditions and telling stories about the family. This is a good way to pass on those stories to him and his children one day. My husband died unexpectedly last year and I started talking to my son about his Dad and our life together before he came along. It has become very important to him. I like the idea of him and his children having this book in my handwriting so traditions can be carried on. He also gave me 4 months of a cleaning service - I absolutely loved that

Your son sounds wonderful. So do you, for that matter. Happy Mother’s Day.

I just gave her her first grand child so she’s getting a fridge magnet with his face on it. He’ll only be a month old on Mother’s Day so a little too burnt out to come up with anything else

I’m quarantined w my aunt, uncle, brother and cousin at the moment. I show that I’m really happy all day but every night before I go to sleep I cry like a baby. Sometimes even during the middle of the day I take bathroom breaks to shed some tears. I don’t know who I’ve become and why this is happening - I lost my job and am dating a boy who doesn’t seem to care about me. Some days are better than others and that keeps me going.

Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?

Starting a new job in September. If the new company matches 100% of 401k up to 5%, does that mean a max of 5% of the salary I’ll make between September and December, or would it be 5% of my full salary, so that if i contribute at 20% or so, I can get 5% of the full, yearly salary in just those 4 months? Thank you!

Quick vent: I really hate when people aren’t inclusive! I invite my roommate out all the time with my friends and we have a great time. I haven’t received a single invite back.
