2 questions in one night. Sorry about that. But I did wait the required 5 questions.
Just looking for some reassurance tbh.
I have 3 siblings. Of the 4 of us, only my sister has children (so far). Her daughters are 2 and 1.
When at her house I noticed my eldest niece had a toy that was very similar to one I had (and loved) as a kid. I mentioned this to my sister and she just brushed it off.
After talking to my brothers (who both live in my childhood home), they told me that my sister raided all the toys and kids stuff that was stored in the house when she was pregnant with her oldest, including all the books I collected from when I was a toddler up until my early teens. I had this set of old Disney books that taught kids how to read and I LOVED them and always wanted to keep them for my own kids if I ever had them.
My sister gave them to her 2 year old and they're now RUINED. My nieces have drew all over them, ripped pages out etc (as you would expect a toddler and a baby to do).
What would your reaction to this be? I was really upset and tried to talk to my sister about this and she gave the good old "I have kids, you don't" and "well you should have had kids first" excuses.
Am I over-reacting? Do I have the right to be upset that I have literally NO childhood keepsakes to give to my kids if/when they ever appear? I would have been fine if my sister just kept them and read the books to my nieces, instead of letting them play with them. (and it's not like they don't have plenty of toys anyway)
TL;DR My sister gave all my childhood keepsakes to her babies who then ruined them. Would you be upset?
For those who live in apartments or who have offices-have you ever had a holiday 'decorate your door' contest?
This is my first holiday in an apartment and we have a contest with the theme 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer' but I really don't have the funds. :/
If you have been in such a contest-how did your door fair? What was the theme?
How do you delete a comment you made in a community? As in, properly delete it so that your name doesn't show up anymore either- or is this just impossible to do?
Do you make your own pizza? What do you put on it?
If you were having a difficult day or few days, what kind things could people do to help you feel better? Acts, gifts, gestures, whatever :)
ETA: I am realizing this might be very similar to the question about gifts for a road trip, so I will add what is a song that makes you feel fierce and powerful and awesome whenever you hear it?
What are you craving right now?
Are you going to be able to get it-or is it a pipe dream of food?
Do you eat cottage cheese? What do you eat it with/on or put on top of it?
Which is better: being a full-time student or having a full-time job? What are the pros and cons of each? If you've graduated from post-secondary, do you miss it?
I just decided to try to theme my unborn daughter's bedroom at the last possible minute. I am going with the 'Madeline' storybook. Her room is already painted yellow. Help me brainstorm some decorating ideas and/or link me to some places with themed related items for sale? Just a few wall art items would probably suffice.
Dk/DC : Did you babies have themed rooms? Did you ever have a themed room as a child?
I take part in a christmas card exchange each year, and am trying to come up with new ideas for something extra I could put in with the card. It has to be something thin enough and flexible so that it won't get broken, and light so I don't have to add extra postage. I've done recipes a couple times, and stickers, and glittery snowflakes. Edit: Cheap is another requirement. I'm looking at 50-80 cards here. Postage alone, especially international, eats up most of the money I can spend on this.
