  • Well, I haven't actually started mine yet but I will be going to a college about an hour and a half away from my home and my daughter will be staying with my parents while I go to the college during the week (so she doesn't have to change schools because we plan on living close to my parents after I graduate). I'll be home on the weekends but it's going to kill me to be away from her. luckily it will only be for two years so I won't miss as much if I were doing my whole six years there.

  • Going to work! Missing activities, having strangers drive my kids!! Working sucks, it really does. It's OK when they are babies, but once they start school and have clubs and activities and sports that I always miss, it's really bad!!!!!!!

  • Nichole, my kids have been known to push my buttons because I don't follow through. However, they are getting older and I have been following through more often. Right now, my biggest guilt is when my 22 month old wakes up several times in the middle of the night and I lose my patience because of sleep deprivation. My toddler is having problems breathing and she wakes up many times. Plus I have a 4 month old nursing, so I don't sleep much and I get frustrated easily. I feel horrible and end up letting her lay with me in my bed.
