This is our time to really talk to each other and for me to be "his girlfriend".
    Personally, I would suggest that to your husband or to him and see what happens. She may be clinging onto the daughter because she feels like that is all she has. He needs to make her feel needed and wanted and vice versa. It's a vicious cycle because once you start down that road it is so hard to come back from it.
    You know, you might have a point there. I guess its really hard to tell from which side this originated from. I know that they don't ever go out on "dates" or anything, but I'm not sure which person is the one not wanting to. My brother-in-law is kind of a penny-pincher (just like my sweetie) and my sister-in-law really is more of a homebody. Hmm.... I guess this could go either way, couldn't it?

    But yeah, we are totally off topic here. LOL! Hey Jess, to answer your question, yes my husband gets really POed if he learns how much a bag I bought cost. Hehe... so usually I just don't tell him. I'm hoping that at some point I'll have enough bags that he won't notice if I get a new one. LOL!

    If my boyfriend and I weren't having some money issues, he would be totally ok with my bag addiction. He will sit next to me and look at the bags yall post on the site with me :) He's a sweetheart though, and no, he wouldnt want me dropping a thousand dollars or more all the time, but a few times a year would be ok with him. (or so he says... lol, i guess we'll see! :) but, I am ok with his gaming addiction (xbox 360, wii, ps3, etc) so i guess it evens out! :)

I was working 4 days a week previously and at first, I felt really guilty, but I saw that my son was learning so much from the early learning centre. And during the times I was with him, I would give him my 100%. I do feel that some mothers are at home all the time and may not even be connected with their kids. I am still undecided whether I would go back to work once my daughter is one. It's almost a case whether it's even worth it with the cost of daycare. I suppose my point is, not all mothers who work don't care enough about their kids. Each individual case and family is different and there is no one right way. As mothers we should support each others' decision as it is a hard enough job.
    I don't think you are a bad mom at all! I don't have any kids personally, but I know that my personal situation is that where I would still have to work somewhere if I had a kid.

    It's great if your husband can support the family, and you as a mom can stay home...but I hope when that decision is made, it is a very carefully made decision where you weigh all the outcomes. You have to give your child so much more than just emotional support. You need to make sure that you have adequate and affordable healthcare, dental care, and vision care. You have to make sure that you have enough money to feed them healthy foods. You have to make sure that you have a stable roof over your head ... it's all so much more than just the loving emotional support. Sometimes, women cannot help but have to work - either because their husbands have been laid off or the husband's jobs don't have the best healthcare and other benefits for the child.

    I would like to think that if I had a child, I would be able to change my career path to be home more - but if I couldn't, I would have to do the best I coudl with the hand I was dealt. I have great health insurance, and decent enough pay.

    I also think that women need to stay abreast in their chosen career fields. It's sad but true...you never know what can happen. There may be a day for one reason or another the husband is not there to help support you and the family, and the weight of everything will fall on you.

    My husband is getting there...he can tell the fake multicolor - especially the ones with the plastic-y fake leather handles ... but he's not as good telling the monogram ones. I think it's because he sees my multicolor all the time (and I always hear this: "I cannot believe you paid $1,400 after taxes for a purse you won't even carry when there is the slightest chance of rain".)

    Have you waterproofed the vachetta?? I used the Apple Rain & Stain repellent on mine and it worked just fine.

    My husband buys me handbags and always with the matching shoes, but if it comes down to it he will remind me that I just got a new bag and to pay down debt or donate it or do something more beneficial than purchasing a bag everytime I get some cash.
    He on the other hand loves to buy cars- and not cheap ones either. His excuse is that he can sell them if he needs the money and with a bag I cant get half my money back because retail loses its value so quickly. Nevertheless the first LV GM Damier that he got me has increased since I got it in 04 and he is pretty proud of his "investment."
    Besides, he has become quite the fly boy in his Gucci tennis shoes, LV backpack and Fendi scarves...

    "I do feel that some mothers are at home all the time and may not even be connected with their kids."

    ^^^ITA with this.

    On topic, my husband reeeally doesn't care. If I tell him that I want something, he always replies with, "get it!". I am the one who is terribly indecisive and it takes me forever to decide what to get. He's actually doesn't care about the price; I do (ugh). Last winter we were at Joe Brand (local boutique) and he saw a Burberry coat and he really wanted to get it for me, but it was over $900 so I didn't let him because of the price and because it gets cold here like 2 days out of the year lol. I ALWAYS overanalyze anything I intend purchase. So, it is I who cannot understand my own bag addiction, not my DH lol!
