Room sharing and toy room, or seperate rooms?
Hi IM's,

I'm curious as to the opinions on others when it comes to room sharing.
Would you or do you have your children share a room so that you can have a seperate toy room?
If you do room share, do you have any problems?

Accessing court records

An IM's husband here. My wife suggested I ask the question here. Does anyone know if it's possible to access criminal local court records/judgements and how to go about it? Long story short, the criminal was my son's step-father and my son was involved and I'd like to find out more about it. It's not on the case law website. Note I have shared care of my son but...

So my step daughter came over today. She's four and I've been in her life since she was 1.5. She started telling me how her mum has been saying stuff about me like 'don't let .... paint ur nails, that's my job'. And 'ask daddy to do ur hair instead of .....'.

Life is tough, isn't it?

I'm not one to share my life with people, not because I'm proud or embarrassed, I just don't feel the need to express that with anybody. Until now, with you, complete strangers, open for honesty and possible judgement. But that's okay.

I've been seeing a Psychologist for going on 4-weeks, it's been such an amazing experience. In this short period. It has given me so...

I do all of this (not completely, but...
