  1. If it’s something that you’re really passionate about, go for it. It’s a huge sacrifice. I didn’t make a single cent for a long time and then I was lucky to make $50 a week for a while. You’ll need another job or a large savings most likely. If you’re doing it right it’ll be all consuming. You need to eat sleep and breathe tattooing if you really want to get into it. Time off from the shop should be dedicated to drawing and studying tattoo design. It’s not for the weak that’s for sure, but if it’s something you really want to do, do it. It can be a very rewarding career

  2. My son is 6 months old and ebf and my grandma told me the other day that I have to get him on a bottle because my milk is going to dry up soon lol. There was zero breastfeeding education back in the day

  3. My last mentor found out I was telling people that I was an apprentice before I tattooed them and chewed me the fuck out for it. Said it was nobody’s business if I was an apprentice or not and that people wouldn’t get tattooed by me if they knew and the shop would lose money. Safe to say I am no longer at that shop. Absolutely tell people you’re an apprentice before tattooing them. If I went to a shop expecting a professional quality tattoo and left with an apprentice tattoo and nobody told me beforehand I’d be pissed. You’re putting something permanent on people’s body and they deserve to know if you’re an apprentice beforehand and then make the decision to be tattooed by you if they feel comfortable

  4. If I did this I’d have to change my clothes 80 times a day lol

  5. Dee “years ago I tried to burn my college roommate down to the box springs”

  6. Yes. We haven’t had a single weekend as a family since my son was born

  7. We just got over the 4 month sleep regression and now it seems the 6 month one is starting. I haven’t gotten a decent nights sleep in over 3 months. It’s tough

  8. 6mo EBF and still in the same situation. Last night i was up from 11pm to 4:30am. It’s tough

  9. I’ve been breastfeeding for 6 months and my nipples haven’t been sore a single time. Everyone has different experiences. I was also told breastfeeding would be the most miserable experience of my life but I have loved every second

  10. I went through this same thing. The first 3-4 months of my sons life was hell mentally. Every time I looked at him I imagined in great detail something awful happening to him and I distrusted almost everyone around him. He’s now 6 months old and I would be lying if I said it has completely gone away but it is now manageable. If you can afford therapy that will really help you and if not, be easy on yourself. You’re going through the biggest life adjustment you will probably ever go through. Not to mention the deep primal instinct to keep that sweet little baby safe at literally all costs. Being a mother is wild but so amazing and I promise it does get easier!

  11. Becoming a parent actually made me realize how shitty my own parents were. They used to pull the old "you'll understand when you're older!!" and i honestly thought i would. but nope! it honestly disgusts me how little regard they had for me in every sense. i cannot imagine treating any child, let alone my own, like that.

  12. Yes. My son is only 6 months old but there are things my parents did to me when I was a kid that I know I could never ever put him through. And they always said “when you have kids you’ll understand”. And no I don’t understand. If anything I understand it less now than I did when I was a kid

  13. Well she already sounds awful If she wants to put her old dog down and get a new puppy lol

  14. “Put whiskey/rye on your finger and rub it on his gums.” If someone tells me this one more time I’m gonna lose it.

  15. SAME. my parents told me to do this and when I told them no they said “you can’t listen to everything a doctor tells you” ???

  16. Yes. You’d think it would be common sense to not give a baby alcohol in any capacity

  17. Congratulations!!!! Do something special for yourself. You deserve it!

  18. In my opinion, Steinbeck does epic stories, with great characters, whose lives intertwine into something elaborate and grand. Another author that does this is John Irving. His two greatest books (in my opinion) are The Cider House Rules and A Prayer for Owen Meany. The World According to Garp isn’t bad either. Another epic stand alone is Middlesex, by Jeffrey Eugenides. It has different vibes, but is equally amazing. I didn’t like it when I first tried to read it (when I was about 20), but LOVED it when I was about 30. Sometimes you just have to be ready for a book, ya know? Anyhow, I hope you enjoy them!

  19. A prayer for Owen meany and middlesex are on my tbr! About to buy them

  20. I was like this when I was in my teens. My friends were like this as well and I guess I thought I was edgy and cool because of it. I grew out of it and had my son 5 months ago and now being his mom is my whole life and I love it. On the other hand, my friend never grew out of it and she has a 2 year old that she hates. Needless to say I no longer talk to this person and have no desire to be around anyone who thinks it’s cool or okay to hate innocent defenseless children

  21. That's so cute. My 8mo pushes the boob from her mouth with her hands and then chases it with her face like "wait come back!"

  22. My five month old does this. He’s started trying to suck his thumb and the boob at the same time and gets so mad when it doesn’t work lol

  23. The thing that gets me is that if they don't get the credit it becomes an issue. I'll find that the bare minimum chore no longer gets done. I get wanting to be appreciated but come on dude. I do everything else. I get a thanks occasionally or if something's very obvious. But I'm not looking for recognition every time I change the toilet paper.

  24. This. And then when you say they could help out a little more it’s “well I’ll just start doing everything then”. As if they’d even be capable
