The real evils, indeed, of Emma’s situation were the power of having rather too much her own way, and a disposition to think a little too well of herself.

I so miss those times when my son was still a baby. Enjoy the moments because they fly by. As for the pictures, there was a discussion thread a couple years back that prompted me to post those; it had something to do with keeping your inner child alive. But no, they're not of my son. They're just fun random pictures that my sister had 'forward e-mailed' me. Except for the family; that's my mom and dad, sister, and baby me.

Impressive webpage, I haven't been able to look through much of it yet, but what I have seen I thought was wonderfully done. I am debating about shooting your link over to my girlfriend..

Hi, Alison. I spent some time checking out your site this morning. It's very impressive! I read 'The Perfect Housewife: A Great American Myth'. I went through that type of phase shortly after I quit my job to stay home to care for my baby boy (he's 14 now) and fully devote myself to family. It's a long story, but that phase nearly killed me. lol 

I'm going to have to read more of your articles.

Nature of relationships

Hi all,Have been thinking of relationships recently and as I didn't grow up with happily married parents I didn't have a good role model to understand what they are about.But a theory I have is that a relationship is not so much about the person you are together with, it's more about having a commitment to the relationship itself.  So it doesn't matter so much whether your wife annoys you or pleases you, whatever happens you are committed to the idea of being togeher and forming this…See More
