This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those “Adopt a Soldier” programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a little beanie baby gold fish and a hand written note from a 7 year old girl that said  “Dear Soldier, (I wasn’t even mad) I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry you have to miss thanksgiving with your family. This is my friend Chester. He keeps me safe from monsters, but I think you need him more than I do. I hope he keeps you safe from the monsters you’re fighting. Take good care of him for me”.
You bet your ass that little fish was in my pocket every time I went on patrol.


😭😭😭😭

I’m watching both boys tonight while my wife goes out. Finn comes home and says, “Dad, are you going to babysit us tonight?” I’m like, “Nope. I’m gonna be your dad tonight. Dads aren’t babysitters, bug. Let’s party.”

Nothing upsets me like seeing people on the mumblr tag asking people important questions that really should only be asked to their child’s doctor. Yes, other moms may have had the same experiences and may be an AWESOME resource to lean on- but there has to be a point when you realize somethings are more important and you need to ask your child’s doctor/a professional.

Anonymous said: My wife's dad and stepmother are wickedly inconsiderate, pushy, self-centered, and by far the most dysfunctional people I've ever known. My wife and I don't want the step-mother's influence near our toddler because she gets her kicks from different varieties of manipulation (the children they have together all have issues as well), and her dad chooses to ignore this problem. Without starting WWIII, how do we approach creating barriers when reasoning with them has so far proven to be futile?

This sounds familiar.

I’ve said before, I’m a big fan of speaking to adults like adults and, if they can’t handle that, that’s their problem. So, if you know WWIII is a possibility, I guess just prepare for WWIII and have the hard conversation. And if discussing barriers hasn’t worked before, maybe do that whole shock-and-awe thing by not allowing them to be around your kid until the behavior changes.

Because, as I said in the linked post above, your baby is more important than the resulting awkward silence during Thanksgiving dinner.

Repeat after me: 

Adults are responsible for the emotional welfare of their children. If someone is threatening the emotional welfare of your child, it’s up to you to establish and enforce boundaries with that person. 

And if they complain or try to manipulate you, stick to your guns. 

This is exactly what recently happened (and still is happening) with my mother in law and I.
