    Thought of another. I think bridal showers are sexist and offensive. They perpetuate a belief that a woman getting married is considered some sort of accomplishment and that women are not full people until married. Plus, you don’t deserve that many presents.

    And don’t get me started on week-long, international bachelorette/bachelor parties. Just no.

    Ok, rant over.

    @JJ2626: I looooathe elaborate bachelor/bachelorette parties. My husband has had 2 in the past 2 years that we’re out of town and cost several hundred dollars. Some of my friends are traveling 6 hours to VT to go hiking and spa-ing, despite us having a popular hiking and spa-ing bachelorette destination 40 minutes away 🤦‍♀️ What really drives me crazy is that these people seem totally blind to the total amount they’re asking people to spend on their wedding (dress/tux $250, gift $100, bachelorette $350, bridal shower $50–totally insane!).

    I don’t like Beyoncé. I mean obviously she’s a very talented singer but I just don’t like her music.

    I don’t understand how a lot of people make their kids “their life” and then ignore their spouse by putting the kids first.

    It annoys me that they complain “oh my marriage/relationship “ isn’t working right now for some reason! 🤔 Well give him some darn attention and you need self care too!

    I’m all about quality time with DH and getting away. It’s hard to leave at times but it’s amazing to be away and it’s often!

    Also, I think people need to have sex more! I’m saying it! I’m all about reconnecting and being intimate multiple times a week with my hubby! I don’t want to forget what we had prior to kids!

    Oh and I think it’s nasty that dogs sleep and lay in the bed! People at work think I’m the crazy one! lol Our dog isn’t allowed on the bed!

    @cake2017: this is exactly why I never want to end up in marriage counseling, bc I def put my kids before DH.

    I’m in Canada, and while it’s free.. our health care sucks. (I’m rural so it sucks more then most places). The amount of money our family pays to health care as part of our taxes... 😖

    @josina: Same w/ This is Us. I just haven't watched most shows people love. Except for GoT, but only b/c we got started BEFORE kids. I don't think I've really followed anything post kids; I can't commit lol

    @lady baltimore: My new bff!! Haha. Everyone (including my kids and DH) always go gaga over watermelon and I never ever have!

    @Jennibenni: I totally respect her and what she's doing and how she is using her platform but I have no idea how she went from Beyonce to Queen B and don't really care either lol

    @crazydoglady: Same, I don't really care either! My husband does but he also doesn't have to stay with my newborn and my toddler alone. @Jennibenni: SO agree. I just don't like her even though I agree shes talented.

    Probably super unpopular but I don't force our 4yo to eat foods he doesn't want to eat. He's a super picky eater and we have spent hours begging and bribing him to eat new foods. I feel like forcing him makes it worse and ends up with us frustrated when he refuses. Relaxed is best when it comes to him and fingers crossed my daughter is a much better eater than him when shes older.

    Cats I do hate, but not sure that’s very unpopular.

    I only bathe my baby once a week because she just doesn't get dirty.

  20. graceandjoy

    pear / 1565 posts

    @mediagirl: Ohh yes this! In the winter we only bathe them weekly, and summer 2x a week. We wipe them down nightly but both of us don't feel like nightly baths are needed (I'd insert shrug emoji if I was on my phone, haha)

    @mediagirl: @graceandjoy: Yup! Even my 4 year old only gets a bath 2x a week. I use wipes for his feet and face but the boy never smells.

    @crazydoglady: Not that I think they're not dirty, I just think we can afford to stay a little dirty, hahaha. I know some people now are like man I hope I don't know these dirty people IRL!

    I hate bacon. It's greasy, fatty, tastes gross, and ruins everything it touches with it's bacon-ness. Literally everything that has bacon in it just tastes like bacon.

    @crazydoglady: @graceandjoy: I'm so glad I'm not the only one who only bathes my 4 year old twice a week!

    Of course, it doesn't help that she treats bathtime like it's a full on spa day, and I just don't have time for that every night...

    Add me to the group of people who bathe their kiddo 2-3x a week in the summer and like 1-2x in the winter.

    @caitcat: YES! DS wants to be in the bath for hours.

    Mine is that I put my kids in time-out every once in a while for poor behavior and I don't believe it is ruining them or destroying their bond with me.

    @Mrs. Starfish: I put DD (3yo) in time out too. It gives her time to calm down and then I can talk to her.

    I don’t feel any guilt about my 4yo DS being in daycare all day. The school is awesome and he loves it there. It’s just another community of people who care for him, just like having a big extended family. I spend plenty of time with him on the weekend.

    Also, I will 100% put my son above my DH as a priority. I love DH too and I’ve committed to being his caregiver, but its not on the same level as my child. Our relationship is different than it was - having a child is only one of many reasons - but I think that’s inevitable. It doesn’t mean i won’t honor my commitment to DH.

    @Mrs. Starfish: @JennyLayneAZ: My 4.5 year puts herself in time out. She needs a moment to herself to calm down and always comes out happier/collected!

    @JennyLayneAZ: @Mrs. Starfish: Same! DS goes into time out a few times a week. We tell him he can come out on his own when he is ready to listen/play nicely etc. It always helps and he is calmer.

    I'm not a big dog fan either, but can see the potential appeal. The pet that I absolutely would not want, chickens 😝

    I think owning a house is overrated. We bought last year and really miss renting. The amount of time and/or money to properly maintain a house is just crazy to me. We rented in a "luxury apartment building" with a community room you could reserve for events, a full gym, pool, grills, fire pits, full time office staff, and full time maintenance staff.

    We had so much more free time and less stress when we were renting.

    I think its wrong to eat meat, dairy, eggs or anything that comes from an animal. The meat and dairy industries are horrific if you take the time to learn about them, and I'm not cool with animal torture and killing a living being that wants to live.

    I think this way of thinking is getting a little more popular now, but most people still think I'm pretty extreme for thinking/eating this way.

    Unless your eyebrows are sparse or non-existent or you're a model, I think microblading or penciling in strong brows makes most people look ridiculous.

    @mrs.cereal I can stand HA. I do not get the obsession of mud pies and smockings. I live in the South so it’s pretty common. But I think mud pie clothing’s are so ugly. And smockings look and feel uncomfortable.

    Also, I’m not that into nap routines. Maybe bc she’s third child, but my youngest naps wherever and whenever. She doesn’t get overtired or extra crabby or anything. On the other hand, my friends son is on a strict nap schedule that my friend is a total hostage to it. They’re doing some international traveling and she’s complaining his sleep is all over the place and he’s cranky. Well yea, it’s bc you’ve conditioned him to sleep only in his room, with sleep noises, with dark curtains, at the precise temperature, with a certain smell, etc. Like one thing is off and he can’t sleep.

    Okay rant done.

    -I hate the smell of lavender.
    -The newborn period is awful. When I look at pics from both my sons from that time, it makes my stomach churn.
    -Fudge is disgusting!
    -I don't like very open house floorplans. I like a den or closed off living space.
    - I don't think soap is always necessary for washing dishes (Unless it's meat)
    - If slaughterhouses had glass walls, no one would eat meat.
    And I'll go out with a bang:
    I do not think children should have formal, academic "schooling" until they are at least 6, maybe 7. At that time, they should have at least an hour of recess and/or quiet time too. (and I'm a public school teacher in suburban NY)

    Thought of another one: I hate the wedding industry and the fact brides have like 2390 bridesmaids. I say no all the time to bachelorette parties and showers unless I love the bride.

    @cake2017 totally agree with you in theory, but in reality it's not practical for me and for many other families, even though I wish it were different! Zero family support, young kids who don't sleep, working parents, plus my kids have some medical issues so we are constantly in therapy/appointments... I'm up at 5 every day and after kids go to bed, it's work frantically to get some laundry done, wash dishes, pack kid lunches, etc. Like...I can't just not do those tasks lol. It would change our marriage if we could go for kid free weekends/vacay but we have no one to watch our kids. Date night is $60 min for babysitter before we walk out the door...plus I'm up at 5am w/kids the next day so it's not very appealing. Wish there was a better solution.

    Coffee is gross.

    Kids' birthday presents/party favors are pointless.

    "Updating" homes based on the latest trends is silly and makes people unhappy with their perfectly good homes and destroys the environment for no reason.
