    Found out I won an incentive trip for work called the warehouse dash. I’ll be gone to Chicago next week so wife wants to upset this time since I’ll be coming back with free stuff. Ha

    Sounds like I'll be joining this thread sooner than I anticipated. Wife went in for a checkup this morning and the doctor said her stomach is measuring at 43 weeks right now and we're in week 35. So he wants us to come in tomorrow for an ultrasound so they can measure him and determine whether they want to induce now. I'm nearly 6'4" and my wife is almost 5'10" so we anticipated a big child but not this.

    My wife and I found out today that we are having a little girl. I was fully convinced it was a girl based upon this pregnancy being the opposite of our last with a boy. I honestly couldn’t be happier...most especially for my wife. We lost a little girl late with our first pregnancy. I wanted her to have a little girl to raise. Those ultrasounds are the most nerve racking deals for me....glad it came back perfect.

    Hopefully she is a daddy’s girl because our boy is the biggest momma’s boy on the planet.

    last night my 3 year old had a temper tantrum because he couldn't have another box of raisins. we sent him to his room to cry and his little 10 month old sister (who just started crawling a month ago) crawled down the hall and into his room. He immediately walked over to her and patted her head and hugged her. It was the sweetest thing ever and I cried thinking about it on the way to work today.

    How old? My two year old can be such a dick to me when Moms around. He'll try to push me off the couch, randomly say "bye bye" wanting me to leave. I can't give him a bath (which I'm not really complaining about) without him absolutely losing his shit.

    But like this past week when Mom was gone for 3 days he was perfect for me through everything. :idk:

    He is 2.5 (turns 3 August 1st) and is obsessed with his mom. Follows her around everywhere. In all honesty he behaves better when she isn’t around although he is good for her. I’m alone with him the next three days. So far tonight he has been perfect for me since daycare. Only time it gets tough is bedtime....he misses her big time.

    I was lucky when my guy was little. My wife was attorneying hard and then moved into another job that required long hours so I was p much a single dad except for bed time (most nights) and weekends when she was around. My career allowed me to spend major time with him after daycare and I look back at that time with so much joy. I know a lot struggle when they are little but I’ll tell you that they go fast and you’ll miss them when they get older. Also teen kids are fun af but also moody and a pain in the ass.

    So Daycare sends out a email yesterday saying one of Lil Bishop's classmates has HFM. Wife takes Lil Bish to the Doctor bc he was very fussy yesterday morning and he is confirmed early stages of HFM.

    We then find out a kid at the school had HFM last week but the parents didn't tell the school till after they sent the notification. Thanks alot Assholes!

    A kid at daycare had RSV and they “notified” us by putting a flyer on the door that listed the symptoms of RSV. Wasn’t very pleased about that.

    The school is really good at notifying us about anything. Just can't believe a kid had a very contagious virus and the parents didn't notify the school till after other kids got sick.

    Working from Home since Lil Bish can't go to daycare (HFM). Wife had a 103 Fever last night. Having a blast.

    Best thing I do is keep about 3-4 new Hot Wheels cars in a drawer so when I need him to give me a few minutes to work or stop hollering during a conference call I just give him a Hot Wheels to go play with.

    Yeah it is a struggle. If he was really sick it would be easier with him just laying on the couch. But he is full of energy.

    Those are the worst when they’re sick and want to run around everywhere. Wife has been home dealing with a sick 3 year old. All tests came back negative but she was running 102-103 temp. Luckily she’s better and back at school today. Meanwhile wife is at the doctor and texted she has strep. So much for valentines. Parenting is fun. Our house is a revolving door of someone being sick on a weekly basis.

    There has been a lot of talk about how difficult single parenting is and I couldn’t possibly agree more. I’ve been a single parent since Monday night with my wife coming home today. I always get nervous and hope time flies by but every single time when the end is near I get sad. My little guy was so good for me and absolutely a blast to hang with.

    This morning when he woke up I put him in my bed and turned Paw Patrol on. He looked at me and said he wanted me to lay with him. It was so great. He looked over at me and said he loved me and gave me a kiss. I nearly died right there.

    Of course I got out of the shower and he had proceeded to dump his coco puffs and Cinnamon Toast Crunch all over the bed but I couldn’t even be mad. He has this little shit eating grin on his face.

    Honestly, the worst thing about being a single parent with full custody is taking my daughter out and her having to use the restroom. Every place needs a family restroom and it’s ridiculous most places don’t. That and the questions on where her mommy is but we’re past that phase but seriously, fuck all establishments without a family restroom.

    Imagine pissing & shitting in your underwear 3 times a day for like 2 weeks. Each pair of shitty underwear is kept in a bag until the cleaning service comes and picks it up and delivers you freshly laundered underwear that other people wore and shit in previously

    Whatever you save in environmental impact from not throwing away diapers, you're just going to use an insane amount of energy doing laundry every single day. I only know of one person who's done this, everyone else who starts quickly abandons it.

    Word. We wouldn’t be using a clean/exchange service though, we’d clean them ourselves.

    Yeah it might just get too exhausting/gross to maintain it. We run laundry pretty much every day anyway though, so that wouldn’t be as much of a deal-breaker as prepping the soiled cloth for the washing machine. We know a few people who’ve done it and stuck with it, but no one who does it exclusively: they all use a mix of cloth and bio-degradable disposables.

    You have to prep the diapers before washing them, I.e., scoop, scrape, soak, spray, etc... the poop away then throw them in the machine.

    I mean, I guess you don’t have to, but I’m not about to toss full turds in with the rest of the laundry.

    AFAIK, there are no cloth diaper services on our island. I’m also kinda leery about using other family’s soiled clothes, storing our own for pickup, and paying extra for it when the whole point is a lower footprint/cost.

    welI have read this and wonder in all honesty how I survived cloth diapers .
    a toilet all for diapers ?
    honest I WOULD RATHER HAVE CLOTH DIAPERS THEN MY SSC CUT TO 300$ A MONTH INCOME ?
    My friend or so called just got his 1000$ a month garnished for child support .
    only real cheaters and scumbags get it .
    somehow god always balances things out .
    please fathers always remember god always balances things out and if you have to dunk shit on a piece of cloth he must think you can handle it.

    Or the quantity of wet diapers when they're tiny or changing them in the middle of the night when you're a half assed zombie.
