Hi everyone, just a quick note to let you know that we have some new moderators on the forums, no doubt you're familiar with these guys.and 7 others.
So if you have questions, complaints, requests to delete that post you drunkenly bashed out at 3am and now regret, moderators are:
@iMatty94 i don't normally when this happens (didn't last week), but I caved and watched it. I knew there was no way I could avoid spoilers of the penumltimate episode for 5 days. :-(Without revealing anything, how was the episode?
Congratulations! My only useful advice is to avoid internet parenting forums like the plague. I'm not even kidding. They are a hot bed of judgemental crazies and no matter what you're doing there will be an online gang ready to pile on and tell you you're doing it wrong and probably abusing your child in the process.and 3 others.
I have one child (18 now) and as someone who didn't grow up around much younger siblings and had no parent friends at the time, I was clueless. I basically treated my daughter like a tiny adult - spoke to her like I would anyone else from day one (a bit less colourful swearing, perhaps), took her with me out for breakfast or to cafes or when she was a bit older to movies and whatever artsy thing I wanted to look at. She's turned out to be a gem - which could be just her nature, but I like to take the credit. ;-)
Edit: babies make the weirdest noises. Don't panic when you hear all that snuffling and snorting they do throughout the night!
Thinking about this made me realise how little TV I watched in 2017 - I think I’m kind of over prestige television. The few things I did watch tended to be low key crime dramas or sitcoms from the UK. But of what I did sit through, these stood out (in no particular order):
1. Chicanery - Better Call Saul
2. Episode 3.6 - Catastrophe
3. The Mind Flayer - Stranger Things
4. Number One - This Is Us
When that episode of This Is Us started I was almost ready to fast forward through it, because Kevin is my least favourite character and I have zero interest in his story, but in the end I was a crying mess and raging at other characters on the screen. It was a really powerful episode and it has stayed in my head.
Good article illuminating what I've always thought was a false molestation allegation.
I'm ready for women to start speaking out about how Woody Allen sexually harrassed them... any day now. That's a big missing piece of the puzzle.
