Once fun wife turns into strict controlling mom
Adapted from a recent online discussion.
Question: My wife has morphed into someone I hardly recognize following the birth of our two kids. Before kids, she was funny, easy-going, and a joy to be around. After kids, she is now consumed with severely restricting what they (and we) eat. She has banned tap water, flu vaccines, regular laundry detergent, sunscreen, and I could go on.
Planning now for life events without a grandmother
Question: My daughter is approaching the age of big life events, though these events most likely are a way off for her, personally. Seeing her friends' lives changing has made her think about her dreams for the future a lot more. Most of it is pretty much what you would expect: a great job, a nice home, a husband, maybe kids, a chance to make a difference in the world, good stuff, and well within her reach if she chooses to stay on her current path.
