On Soupygirl's 3rd comment, yeah, when Jami said it had always been "traditional" that the father supported the family, I thought, sure, in families that had the father there & if he made enough to support the family.

Jami liked the reference to horror films; I liked the reference to Borges! My favorite story of his is "The Circular Ruins," whose main character set himself the task of "dreaming a man and imposing him on reality." Come to think of it, having children may be as close as anyone comes to that!

Yeah, my first impression was the right about a discussion on cooking for (blah, blah,blah) when you don't have enough food and don't qualify for food stamps--now that's a challenge.

Guess what! Parenting is exhausting--it always has been and always will be. Unless you can afford domestic help of course.

As a working mom, I appreciate the discussion about spousal support.

Soupygirl - you had it right the first time. I'm sorry they have a child with serious medical problems but this is still a snoozefest.

New parents are sleep deprived - who knew?

Oh okay. I was going to write in my last post that if there weren't serious medical problems then this could be silly.

"Reflections on parenting and cooking while parenting". Seriously? This is a topic worth discussing?
