If I do try to spend time with my son while my husband is around, my son immediately starts crying for my husband.

  8. I'm a millennial, and life is good


    Dear previous employer:

    You may think that you have gotten the best of me, but you have not. I am a millennial. You may think that you have put me in a bad spot, but you have not. I am a millennial. You may think that you can threaten me, but I am not afraid. I am a millennial.
