    [–] Modern Family S10E12 ‘Blasts From The Past’ Episode discussion thread GetMotivatedNow 7 points ago in Modern_Family

    I think it would be hilarious! This whole time Claire hasn't liked Dylan because of how dumb and spacey he is. Imagine if we find out that Dylan's mom feels the same way about Hayley.

    Didn't like the episode overall, but loved this one-liner from Claire to Phil regarding Dylan's mom using magnets on Dylan after he got hit in the head: "If that's how she treats all head injuries, I have a theory."

    Imagine if they made Dylan's mom similar to Claire. Successful, intelligent, on the ball, and completely neurotic. Imagine a storyline where the two "gammys" are trying to out-do each other researching the best way for Hayley to go about her pregnancy, or where Claire feels like she's met her kindred spirit and they ACTUALLY GET ALONG. Whatever the relationship, how great would it be if they decide what Hayley's going to do every step of her pregnancy because it's best for her, tell Hayley what she's going to do, and then Hayley surprises them by showing she and Dylan thought all this through on their own and came up with a much better plan. It would be different and it would demonstrate that H&D are maturing and ready to be parents.

    As someone who didn’t have a mom like that, I now AM a mom like that, and it’s an amazing feeling, even though it’s from the other side.

    Oh my gosh, and you’re on reddit?! You’re as cool as a cucumber! Good luck with the delivery, congrats, and I hope you and bub stay healthy!

    [–] When family use your kid for social media points GetMotivatedNow 2 points ago in beyondthebump

    Oh, that would be so frustrating. Maybe leave a snarky comment? “Wow, the two of you must have really bonded that one time you saw her! Imagine how close you’d be if you saw her a second time.”

    [–] Have you ever been mum-shamed? What happened? GetMotivatedNow 1 points ago in beyondthebump

    That’s not what I meant at all! I meant that there’s a good chance shaming mom also has help with childcare. There’s nothing wrong with having a full-time nanny. There IS something wrong with having help with childcare and shaming someone else for having a different type of childcare.

    [–] Have you ever been mum-shamed? What happened? GetMotivatedNow 1 points ago in beyondthebump

    Thank you! There’s definitely nothing wrong with having a nanny (wish I could afford one instead of having my kid get sick every other week in daycare). In my experience, a lot of people who are so judgmental about strangers are projecting.

    [–] Have you ever been mum-shamed? What happened? GetMotivatedNow 24 points ago in beyondthebump

    I bet you a coffee and 10 minutes of me time that snobby lady has a nanny to look after her kid full-time.

    [–] When family use your kid for social media points GetMotivatedNow 2 points ago in beyondthebump

    You can report the post to facebook and they will take down the video. I have no idea what's wrong with people and how they can possibly think it's ok to post images of children who aren't theirs online without the parents' permission!

    [–] So now comes Christmas... GetMotivatedNow 2 points ago in Mommit

    My husband and I sat down together and made a list of what to get everyone. He then bought gifts for his side of the family and me, I did the same for my side and him, and we went together to get our daughter’s and dogs’ gifts. I wrapped gifts while he looked after her. Then she wanted to help with wrapping so we all wrapped together. I’ll clean the house before my in-laws arrive because he’ll be interstate working. He’ll cook Christmas lunch. It took a long time and a lot of heated arguments to get to this level of sharing the mental and physical load.

    [–] How I Decluttered My Papers GetMotivatedNow 7 points ago in declutter

    We have to write “no longer at this address” and then put it back in a post office box. We can’t leave it in our mailbox or else it’ll just sit there.

    [–] How I Decluttered My Papers GetMotivatedNow 3 points ago in declutter

    I already owned a shredder, but I would have bought one if I didn’t. I’ve heard horror stories of dedicating shredding places not actually destroying documents properly or at all and a lot of my shredding had personal info like credit card numbers, passport numbers, etc. it was totally worth having my own!

    [–] How I Decluttered My Papers GetMotivatedNow 4 points ago in declutter

    I thought it was illegal to destroy someone else’s mail! We’ll see if the volume of mail decreases now. Despite my best efforts, I think I’ll need to do a monthly clean out on top of the daily ones.

    [–] How I Decluttered My Papers GetMotivatedNow 5 points ago in declutter

    Oh yay, I hope it will motivate you too! I put the papers on the coffee table so that they were in my face all day long, instead of tucked away in a corner where I could forget about them. It really helped with maintaining some discipline because no way did I want to move all those papers again after moving them to the table in the first place.

    [–] How I Decluttered My Papers GetMotivatedNow 2 points ago in declutter

    I'm glad you like it! I didn't actually NEED to keep less than 10%, but I wanted to give myself a goal that forced me to be ruthless. I'm so sick of packing and unpacking so much paper every year. Now I can fit all the paper in the house into two binders.

    [–] How I Decluttered My Papers GetMotivatedNow 2 points ago in declutter

    That's great! Good luck with the house paperwork!

    [–] How I Decluttered My Papers GetMotivatedNow 25 points ago in declutter

    We kept:

    • birth certificates, certificates of citizenship, marriage license

    • tax returns and receipts for the past 8 years (I wanted to scan and shred these but my husband wanted to keep the hard copies instead)

    • anything related to our current rental tenancy agreement (will get shredded once we move in a couple months and our bond has been returned)

    • a couple papers proving ownership of our cars and their registration and insurance

    • vaccination and sterilization certificates for our dogs

    • some work-related documents (proof of continuation in training, attendance at courses, certified copies of our testamurs, proof of registration within our fields, vaccination documents - All of these were kept because we need the original documents)

    • some cards that have sentimental value

    • some sheet music for my piano

    [–] How I Decluttered My Papers GetMotivatedNow 17 points ago in declutter

    Yes, exactly! At one point, I found myself slipping into the "keep, keep, keep" mindset and had to go back to look at why I was keeping it. A lot of those papers only needed particular pieces of information kept (like membership numbers, etc), so I recorded the numbers and got rid of the papers. Having a pile for scanning and then shredding documents was really helpful too.

    [–] My pep talk to myself GetMotivatedNow 2 points ago in beyondthebump

    I’ve been going through a rough time over the past three weeks that resulted with me ending up in ED last week with a chest infection. I’ve been off work for almost two weeks and mentally not present to play with my daughter the way she wants me to play. I’m finally starting to get better now and returning to work tonight. I definitely needed to read this today.

    [–] How long do you need to declutter a room? GetMotivatedNow 2 points ago in declutter

    Are you able to box up things and move them to your current place? Then you might have more room to work and your mom won’t see you throwing stuff out.
