  • You live with him? Gulp,,,does he have a favorite meal? Newspaper? I have some old Life magazines I could send you from the war time period! Sounds like he is spreading his rooster wings and showing off his muscles of being a male that survived in war and now wants kuddos from the family for what he can provide here. Give him his kuddos,,he earned it,,,,,tell him you guys are trying to do the best you can,,,,times are tough right now,, and jobs are hard to find,,thank him, over and over for his service in the military,,,make him some tea and tip toe away,,,just keep him happy hon,,,thats all he wants is to be remembered for his service, to know that his service was for a reason, and that his family is taken care of.....

  • I'm not understanding. Why does he think you can't take care of the babies? Do you work? Go to school? It's not making sense to me. I'd just ask him what he wants me to do.
