That's good to know! I have pictures of the floor on my phone so I will probably call and tell them to fix it asap or call the Health Dept.

That is my 4 year old. She's playing with her brother in his room and keeps telling me, "Mom, I've got this."

Honestly this house is a p***e o* s**t. Our basement only has one heat vent so it's basically useless in the winter. EVERYTHING is covered in beer from the previous tenants. The walls are DISGUSTING, the counter is separating in the corner, the fridge and sink leaks, etc. We rented this house since it was the only option on the side of town we're willing to live in that would fit our family.



I have gotten it relatively clean but I hate using the kitchen. It's gross. And I have spent probably days (collectively) trying to scrub it.

:shock:



I'm sorry. Our house is adorable, and we're incredibly priced for the location. We needed tenants ASAP so we went low on it, our tenants are great and they've stuck around for almost 2 years now though, so I guess we made the right choice. I miss our home though, it was beautiful. Simple, but perfect for us.

No worries. Mine has too. I'm constantly telling my husband that the baby ate my brain. Sometimes I look at my posts and think "I swear I'm smart, what the f**k!?"

Awwww. I remember my oldest going through that. I was so heartbroken, lol. I'm secretly afraid this baby's gonna love daddy more than me. When my husband came into our lives, both my girls had "to hell with mum" attitude :lol:

We want a rental property in the future!! We have lived here for almost 2 years but we don't feel like moving until we buy. We want an apartment building and a house or two.

Good luck. I want a house so badly, but got to get rid of these student loans first.

I hate owning and having to rent it out. It stresses me out, I always worry our tenants will move. The market is just too slow to sell right now where it is at. We are hoping to buy again this summer, my MIL wants to pass us down their house...and I am so anxious to see if it works out. I miss living in my own home. I don't do well in apartments.

i think the no spanking = no discipline idea is a very common misconception.
We don't spank, it just isn't for our family! However my kids are sweet and polite, my son knows what will get him in trouble and we always follow through. He is disciplined in different ways.
I wouldn't say todays problem resides in the lack of spanking, that sounds incredibly biased

My daughter is only 5 months old right now so Its moslty taking her out of the situation and pulling her hand away saying no. I do believe in spanking but not abuse. I was spanked and sometimes to far but I don't think a swat on the butt will kill the kid. I don't plan to hit hard or enough to do any harm. I don't think lack of spanking is the sole problem I think parents who all think there kids are behaved when they aren't is the problem. A good majority parent I see says how great there kids are when in fact they are to busy with their cell phones, friends and other crap to notice their kid destroying something or being a rude little idgit to others. Or better yet letting there kid run free unsupervised...but hey they are well behaved. There are no consequences just talking to. I got spanked(sometimes beat I would never go there) and I got the hallway(nothing but homework and silence) it is a to each their own situation.
