Me and the Ex
When you get into any new relationship, there is baggage. Every person has it whether they want to admit it or not. And when you get into a relationship with someone who has been married before and/or has children, you are taking on a fair bit of baggage. That's not always a bad thing.
Sleep: It's Important
Sleep. It is something that we all require and so many of us don't get nearly enough. When you have children, sleep is an elusive creature that rarely shows its face. Sometimes you feel like you've gone months without a good night's sleep. Some people will say years.
Independent play; it comes along much too quickly. We wait for a time when we can leave them on their own to play. A time when we don't have to hold them or watch them so closely. A time when we can put them in a jumper and watch them enjoy themselves. A time when we can leave them to their own devices while we take a much-needed break or catch up on things.
Mom-shaming Needs to Stop (Pt. 2)
As if mother's don't go through enough just to get their child into the world, then they have to deal with the world telling them exactly how they should take care of their new bundle of joy. Being a mother is hard, but it is often made more difficult by other mothers thinking that their word is gospel.
Rings with Meaning
For many women, the engagement ring is the most important part of the proposal. The setting and the words being said matter, but most women simply care about the ring that they get. And for some, the ring can make a difference between a "yes" and a "no."
Vacationing with Children
When I hear people talk about vacationing with their children there is always this sense of dread in their voice. They always sound as if it is going to be such a hassle to travel with their kids. They talk as though they aren't going to enjoy any part of the trip. They talk as though it will be stressful and exhausting and nothing like a vacation at all.
