Sometimes, moms just need a break. Others may think we are "weak" because we admit to needing a little more time to ourselves than the occasional sneak-to-the-bathroom-break (in hopes we won't get caught by those tiny, prying fingers under the door). After all, we are human, aren't we? ...more

I do not expect miracles, or, for her to be 100% adjusted at the almost six-month-mark.

Had to clear this out (sorry)

I was wondering how everyone's marriage was affected after having a baby. My husband and I have been on different planes for awhile. I am a SAHM now after being a full time worker and full time nursing student. I did not get to finish that dream yet; but, it is being replaced by my new dream of possibly becoming a certified Yoga instructor. ...more
