    [–] When her dad sees colors for the first time LastLadyResting 2 points ago in happycryingdads

    The rest of us missed the announcement because we were distracted by the leaves changing.

    [–] AITA for telling my sister-in-law the reasons why we were not going to surrogate(mother) for her. LastLadyResting -1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    This right here is why I think he’s not the arsehole for the decision, but very slightly the arsehole for how that decision was communicated. Disappointment should always be private if possible, and this was possible.

    [–] WIBTA if I confronted my brother cause he hasn’t invited me to his wedding anniversary? LastLadyResting 9 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    You can help prove you’ve changed by buying them a small gift, writing out a nice card that makes absolutely no mention of not being invited, and giving it to someone to give to them. Take the high road and remember that bridges are traditionally built slowly.

    [–] AITA for now knowing my son? LastLadyResting 3 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    If I might make a small suggestion? Start writing him letters that you can set aside rather than send. Start the first one with an explanation as to why you are doing this (your Mum thought it would be better not to confuse you as you had a father figure already), but fill it with advice, updates on what you are doing and what you hope is going on in his life. One day he can read them and know that he was always in your thoughts, even though you were never able to meet him.

    [–] Can't even put half your finger in them! LastLadyResting 2 points ago in funny

    I asked my friend. He said that if you order your size and make a note of your needs in the comments section he will make a prototype (apparently they are working on them already). If you do order now you can get it for the Kickstarter price plus half price shipping.

    [–] Can't even put half your finger in them! LastLadyResting 12 points ago in funny

    Blatantly gonna plug my friend’s small business: Quokka Pockets. Business pants for women with deep pockets and proper belt loops. Google if you are interested, ignore if you’re not.

    [–] Scarlett Johansson warns: paparazzi risk another death like Princess Diana's LastLadyResting 1 points ago in entertainment

    That and no one but the bodyguard was wearing a seatbelt.

    Having said that, putting a drunk behind the wheel while multiple cars speed around him flashing cameras and you can pretty much guarantee he will crash, whereas leaving him alone does lower the chances of that happening, not as much as a sober person, but still.

    [–] AITA for trying to convince my girlfriend to get an abortion LastLadyResting -12 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    Yes? Like if I threaten to kill someone and mean it then it’s undeniably a threat? Unless you are making a weird ‘not a threat; it’s a promise’ joke?

    In his main post and throughout this thread he’s made it clear that he’s going to try and get out of child support using every possible method shy of what will put him in jail, and that he intends to make her life ‘as difficult as possible’. That’s a threat.

    [–] What common phrase do people say that you absolutely hate? LastLadyResting 1 points ago in AskReddit

    “I’m simply saying...” and variations of the same. It’s nearly always used by people who have done something to upset someone else, and are now attempting to be ‘rational’ and ‘logical’ instead of admitting that they hurt someone’s feelings. You know, the ones us humans are meant to have?

    [–] WIBTA for divorcing husband over his past sperm donation LastLadyResting 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    I don’t know the full extent, I am a mum via sperm donation and part of the process was taking me through this stuff.

    [–] WIBTA for divorcing husband over his past sperm donation LastLadyResting 146 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    I can confirm from experience that they do. If someone is found to be a carrier of something then he can still donate, but his profile is flagged and any woman who chooses him has to undergo testing to see if they carry the same gene. If they do then they have to pick someone else.

    [–] AITA for telling my wife to go back to work if she’s so miserable? LastLadyResting 31 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    I have an eight month old and I work full time (I went back when he was five months old because that mortgage has to be paid somehow). My job is way less stressful than trying to comfort a child that is being slowly stabbed through the mouth (teething is a bitch) and isn’t old enough to understand why this is happening and why Mummy can’t just make it go away. I still come home tired at the end of the day, but I am exhausted after a full day with my baby.

    I honestly think both roles are bloody hard and that what she’s lacking is adult interaction. A job may well be her saving grace, or a mother’s group (one of the good ones). Having said that his timing sucks. At the height of an argument is nearly always the wrong time to suggest something, even if it’s the right suggestion. I understand where his frustration came from, but I feel like he should have spoken up prior to reaching breaking point.

    NAH. But they need to talk as a couple without baby for an evening.

    [–] His face LastLadyResting 5 points ago in MadeMeSmile

    I was not.

    [–] FBI LastLadyResting 11 points ago in tumblr

    This was written by a millennial. How do I know? There were only three doors total in this entire hypothetical and one of them was the closet.

    [–] AITA for refusing to change my baby’s diapers? LastLadyResting 34 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    Can confirm. I’m a mum who went back to work. Yes I’m still tired in the evenings but not the way I am over the weekends. This kid is full on - and I got a good sleeper! I have mad respect for the stay at home parents/full time babysitters/childcare workers of the world.

    [–] AITA for refusing to change my baby’s diapers? LastLadyResting 14 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    With breastmilk there is usually less, because it contains almost nothing that the baby can’t use. It’s not unusual for a breastfed baby to only poo once a week and be completely healthy.

    [–] WIBTA if I added stipulations to how I’d pay for my children’s colleges? LastLadyResting 27 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    I majored in chemistry... never used it and I work in occupational safety.

    My brother became a secondary teacher, realised he’d made a mistake and did a masters in primary teaching, now he’s the maths coordinator.

    A friend of mine did law, got to the end and realised she hated it, did a masters in safety and is now planning to become a lawyer after all to do conveyancing.

    Plans are great and wonderful things, they are also subject to change and asking a teenager to name her future job is, frankly, stupid. Even very smart people have stupid moments and this is one of yours. People who don’t know what they want to do yet are encouraged by career councillors to do something they enjoy and are good at because chances are when they finally figure it out they’re already halfway there.

    How about, seeing as it matters to you so much, you research all the things her study path can lead to? She may end up at any of them, or none of them, but at least you can stop worrying so much.

    At the end of the day, your relationship with your daughter is being damaged by your choices right now. Is she a horrible person? Has she turned out as the kind of person you want to cut contact with? Are you ashamed of her general behaviour? Do you want her to always remember how you didn’t believe in her ability to figure things out in her own time?

    Also, if she names a career, how do you know she didn’t just do it to make you ‘happy’ with no intention of following through? You said yourself she can change her mind and you’d be okay with it. She’s going to lose her trust in you, and you in her.

    And where might one acquire this outfit?

    [–] WIBTA if I cut my "child-free" kids out of my will? LastLadyResting -5 points ago * (lasted edited 14 days ago) in AmItheAsshole

    I can. You get toxic everywhere and I once met someone who referred to all children as “crotch goblins”, blamed every time someone with kids was short of cash on said goblins (regardless of any other circumstances like medical or car troubles), and somehow always managed to work in the term ‘child free’ into every major purchase they made. We did not become friends.

    Now, I doubt that the common version of a child free person is like that, but OP is the only one that knows their children personally.

    Edit: Apparently my real life encounter has hit a bit too close to home for a few people. Lol.

    [–] Reading Infinity War's parental guide is really funny for some reason LastLadyResting 15 points ago in marvelstudios

    No, but if that’s all there is then it’s safe for young kids to watch (of course the violence section may change a parents mind, but it’s okay to watch on ‘sex’ grounds). If a movie has a comprehensive list that doesn’t include anything serious then chances are there won’t be any surprises to worry about.

    [–] Haven't seen this posted here; found it very...logical LastLadyResting 4 points ago in vaxxhappened

    Drawn by an inexperienced man or a woman with a strange personal growth pattern?
