I recently graduated from a small liberal arts college in the midwest with my bachelor's degree in English. In my very limited free time, I enjoy reading, writing, watching movies, and spending time with my husband and young daughter.
Three weeks ago, I found out my husband of seven years has been having a year long affair with a woman he works with. His new girlfriend is pregnant.
He travels a lot for work and has often been gone for stretches of three weeks at a time. My daughter is used to him not being home on a daily basis, but is used to talking to him on the phone most nights. Since I asked him to leave, he has seen her every weekend for at least one of the two days, although he has never called to check in on her. She talks about daddy from time to time and I'm wondering if she's beginning to notice that Daddy has been gone longer than usual.
I'm making every effort not to trash him in front of our daughter, although it's difficult. I don't even really want to let her see him because I don't him playing house with our little girl and his whore. Please advise.4 AnswersFamily1 decade ago
My 2 1/2 year old was perfectly day time potty trained for about four months. She very rarely had accidents. In the last few months, she has been have numerous accidents a day, both bowel and bladder. When she was originally learning, she would get very upset when she got wet and now, she just takes her pants off or sits in it without telling anyone. Before she was the one telling me she had to go potty and now, I need to remind her and that still doesn't prevent all the accidents. There is no medical reason for it--talked to her doctor already. The only thing I can think of it that my husband started traveling for work a lot lately and is gone for two or three weeks at a time.
Bottom line: How can I get her back on the potty?4 AnswersToddler & Preschooler1 decade ago

How many of you are tired of the Christian vs. atheist arguments in the religion and spirituality section?
Personally, I'm not religious, but I think religion is such an interesting cultural reality. However, when I come to this section all I every find are Christians slagging on atheist and vice versa. There's a lot of meaness and pettiness going on that doesn't need to be here and destroys the spirit of the Yahoo Answers. Does anyone else agree?25 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
What do you think of the following names for a baby boy: Jackson Elijah, Elliott Lucas, or Jonas Daniel?
My husband and I just found out we are pregnant. I know it is a little early to know the sex or to even pick out names, but I have a feeling it is a boy. I'm having trouble selling my husband on Jackson, so I'd like a couple of outside opinions. Thanks for your time.17 AnswersBaby Names1 decade ago
Will the contemporary religions of today be viewed by future generations the same way we view Greek mythology?
We commonly refer to the ancient Greek and Roman religions as myths. Is it possible that one day people will do that for Christianity, Islam, Judaism, etc.?13 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago

"Family Guy" used to be a classic show. It was great in its original run and then it was cancelled. Now that it has been revived, the "Family Guy" brand is everywhere--shirts, notebooks, DVDs, etc. Will the brand eventually collapse in on itself or has it already begun to? Are you sick of it yet?11 AnswersTelevision1 decade ago

I've 24 and I've been married for 3 years. Most of my friends have young children and the baby pressure is on for my husband and myself. However, I'm pretty sure I don't ever want to have children and my husband feels the same way. Is it totally abnormal to not desire children at all or to be a little freaked out by the thought of someting growing inside of yourself?7 AnswersOther - Pregnancy & Parenting1 decade ago

It appears bad thing that happens to a person nowadays is the direct result of "circumstances beyond my control." We live in a culture of blame and accusations that reflects directly on our society's inability to take responsibility for what happens to us. When and why did this shift occur?4 AnswersOther - Society & Culture1 decade ago
I work in retail and I see this mentality all the time. "Of course you should break the rules for me because I am me and therfore special. My mom told me so!" This is the same mentality that gives underage kids the audacity to try and buy beer from a clerk doing her job or allows non-disabled people to think they have the right to park in a handicapped spot. Where and when did this mentality develop? Serious answers please.6 AnswersOther - Society & Culture1 decade ago

Without fail, every time I proofread my own papers, I always miss something including typos, missing words, or little grammatical errors that I know the rules to but somehow forgot to include. I am an English major and work as a tutor, so this is highly embarassing to have these mistakes in my own work. Any suggesstions?9 AnswersOther - Education1 decade ago
