    Mia knows who pays her meager salary.

    They’ll have her nose.

    Geeze, the baby has awfully big hands for an infant. Scary!

    Maybe they’re having premonitions of the guilt trips she’s going to lay on them later in life.

    Familiarity breeds contempt.

    To me it looks like little hands reaching for Mia.

    The twins seem to like Leo just fine. Alex’s approach to parenting is more antagonistic.
    It’s in the bloodlines. She hates her mother, who hates her mother, and they all have pretty good reasons.

    Well, taken together, Alex is an “11”

    Is that what you did to your kids? (Sounds like you’re speaking from experience…)

    You also have to wonder why her kids seem to dislike her so much
    -
    If the kids behaved well for her and seemed to like her as much as they like their Dad, this whole story line would be impossible. Besides, isn’t it a basic tenant of western thinking that a Mom is always supposed to stay at home and take care of kids, and not have a job? Since Alex is working outside the home, she is therefore by western standards a ‘neglectful’ mother.

    Not by MY standards. But according to all the stuff you read online and in newspapers….

    With one baby I’m a 10…with two it’s anybody’s guess.

    The primary caretaker always gets blamed the most. It’s easy to be the cool one when you’re the dad or the babysitter who can go home at night and not have crying kids there.
