Are you a mom?
If so, you can ask real moms your parenting questions and get answers in minutes!
Ok, ladies, I need some advice. Ive mentioned before that my oldest son and DIL met in drug rehab, and their relationship has been the expected trainwreck. They have a 14 month old son, my adorable grandson, Mykelti. Their relationship, and parenting, has deteriorated to the point that it looks like my DH and I are going to step in and take Mykelti for awhile. Probably long term.
My question is: I have a high stress job, and I work 12 hour days frequently. I am new to this area, and I have no family or close friends to help with day care. How do I pick a day care? How do I start over raising a baby? I was a single mom for ten years, and I just finished raising my children. I dearly love Mykelti, and I want him. He needs a stable home, but I am so tired with the life I have now. I feel like I live in a cloud of exhaustion, how do I add a baby to this?
I guess a part of me is scared I cant do it.... and I really want to.
