Omg my husband and I were watching this show, it totally looks like something we want to do. I'm bi.and always wanted a girlfriend and I'm fine sharing my husband as long as we only all play together. She muat love kids, we might be ok if she has one of her own. She. Must have her own job and car. She will sleep in our bed but she will have to pay half the rent and bills. Also she must be loyal to.us, no outside dating. Must also be thin, no fatties. We are soooo excited to find someone to complete our family but its been TWO WEEKS ALREADY! And no one has responded to our personal ad! What gives!

lmao

I am with you. Couldn't watch the first season-can't see as how (from comments already) I would be able to sit through the second.

I haven't talked with her myself-but I had heard that from others who have given constructive criticism.

I can empathize with the difficulty of making a show that will drive up ratings AND be realistic-can't be easy. Who wants to watch the boring neighbors next door LOL!
I can imagine if someone were filming our dynamic-it wouldn't get any ratings. There just isn't a call for watching 3 middle age adults raising kids, wishing they had time for more sex, do dishes, clean house and babysit grandchildren. LMAO!

Exactly. Our life would be a great show:

Episode 7 - Dealing with the teenager
=======================

In which the 12 year old daughter decides that the latest way to show her disapproval of mommies relationship is to make faces behind the boyfriend's back in public. She then hotly denies this and throws a tantrum when a witness steps forward.

A 2 hour discussion follows where topics such as good communication, respect and honesty are discussed.

Riveting watching - poly at its finest

LMFAO!

On a good note-that does sound like normal 12 year old behavior even in a non-poly dynamic.

But I totally know what you mean!
Can you imagine a show where DH is working out of town for 6 weeks (how long is a season? he probably just missed being filmed at all).

Episode I don't know which-BF is still asleep-cause he worked til only God knows what time-
Grandson manages to make the tiny amount of maple syrup in his breakfast breed-so he could cover himself from head to tow.
6 year old daughter wants to practice being a freaking dominatrix or some shit so she spends an hour+ bossing the 2 year old grandson around (whilst he avidly ignores her as though he can't hear her screeching)

While the "beautiful, middle aged, flabby armed (yes that is bugging me currently), hinge in this V-who should be oversexed and still ready and waiting for the next go-around with a lover (haha)-hasn't bothered to change out of a dingy, "mommy like" nightgown and ugly gray knee high mens socks, sits with hair standing on end-talking online in order to avoid addressing the need to workout, clean the toys up, wash the maple syrup (how did he make it continue breeding and spreading across the kids table and chairs while he is showering?).....

Followed by a night of no sleep to pick up yet more kids and grandkids from the airport in the middle of the night...

The previous episode was MORE frightening if you can believe-except for the 4 minutes that show all of the kids and sexy mom in jeans and dark blue tank top buying bday cards and mailing them to DH.... But-that 4 minutes was likely an anomoly...

Tomorrows episode will start with the exciting "awakening" of said mom as she tries to figure out what freaking day it is-please God don't let it be Monday when she has to watch all of the grand kids so adult daughter can do fingerprinting and all that stuff for a new job (CNA)-Dh still out of town, bf working, likely the house will implode from the lack of attention it's gotten in the "clean up" department, the fridge and pantry are empty because she refuses to try to remember how to buy groceries with a 2 year old and 2 months old in tow (both grandsons) and then remembers "oh shit-I can't remember because I NEVER DID THAT! Because I spread my kids out with 8 years between each of them! THAT is why it's so overwhelming!"

The make up, jewelry, sexy outfits (that likely won't fit after this summer of insanity eating too much "easy kid friendly food") and heels are so caked in dust that they likely aren't worth trying to save even if she could remember how the hell to use that stuff and have it result in a sexier "come hither" face...
Hairties have become the norm... when was the last time she did something with her hair besides wash, brush and pull it up and out of the way? Hmmm good question.>


Yeah-I'm thinking my poly life might be more fitting for a "nightmare on elm street" or at least a "mommy make over" show.
HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Thanks, it's good be reminded of that. To be fair, it's tough enough on her to have a new man in mommies life, to have it be a man AND a woman is of course really hard.

So it's not like I don't have compassion for her. But sometimes the behaviour gets to me...

I guess the real point is that poly relationships are, if we strip away the bits that normal society finds titillating, in fact simply relationships with people getting on with their lives. That of course is not exciting viewing.

Good luck with the maple syrup!

Yes-and at 12, she's right at that age where they get REALLY annoying and like to complain about what their parents are doing-even if they agree with it. LOL!

My oldest is almost 22. But my son is 13. The oldest was hell on wheels for me in terms of her attitude about MY life during her teens. Now that she's married with children-she's eating a lot of those words. LOL! It's been interesting watching her repeat my choices and then notice me noticing and come back and say "yeah-you were right-but I didn't know what it was REALLY like". It's also funny to see her roll her eyes at other teens when they say/do the SAME things she did; but now that she's living life as a fully independent adult with responsibilities-she has a much better clue of how difficult it is to communicate effectively with your partner, function on no sleep, figure out the right response to an out of control child etc.

The 13 year old is just starting all of that annoying behavior.
And just to iterate-these are good kids. No drugs, no running away, no school problems etc.
But good kids still gotta go through teen years.
They are trying to claim their autonomy from us-to cut the umbilical cord so to speak. Takes them awhile to realize that they need not hate every detail of who we are in order to express their autonomy.

It will be ok. Be patient-she's 12? Only 6-10 more years and she'll start to have a better respect for the reality of what you are dealing with.
