There are a couple decent Choice hotels in an area we vacation annually so ideally I'd hold on to the points until I can use them there but hoping I don't get a fraction of the current value.

Pardon my vent! Met my husbands family after 2 long years and they met my 15 mo for the first time! The whole time they kept asking me how long did I breastfeed? What food do I give the kid? What does he eat at daycare etc? My kid is at 38 percentile weight wise and I know he has lost a bit of weight last few weeks but that’s mainly because we are on a vacation and he is active as hell! This is my husbands side family who are based in another country and don’t really understand the daycare. Cont

Divorced dads, I’m taking my ex back to court for custody. We mediated in divorce +2 yrs ago - it was not ideal. Since then, her anger worsened along with more transition due to her career for our toddler kids. It’s been a year in the making and tens of thousands lost, but I finally have a mediation date in a few weeks; ideally for 50/50, if not simply decision making ability in their lives (school, religion, camps, etc). I’m emotionally exhausted. Any kind words or advice is appreciated.
