Bug is 8.5 months old and being a Mom is the most amazing thing ever.

The only struggle I have is that I had to go back to work and I hate my job plus there is a long commute so I have almost no time at home during the week.

Kandace is 16 months old. I absolutely love being a mom. It is the most amazing job in the world. The only struggle I have is that Kandace is starting to become whiny and throws fits when she doesn't get her way.

That has to be hard. Have you tried looking for a new job that allows more time with your family.

Welcome to the world of toddlers. It can be very challenging. Ive been using 123 magic on my son since he turned 2 and it's been amazing for his tantrums. Your little girl is still a little young for it though. Are you able to redirect her to something else to get her to calm down.

 I have.  There is just nothing out there--in my field or otherwise.  I need to find a government job in order to get loan forgiveness in 8 years.  Then I'll be able to quit and do what I want with my life.  Just have to get the debt forgiven first.

Mira is almost 13 months old. Being a mom is indescribable! I love it so much! My biggest challenge is I don't share well...DH has to remind me that she isn't just mind. I don't want to let others watch her and I don't really feel a need to leave her home while I go grocery shopping, those are errands we have so much fun doing together. Everyone tells me I'll hit a point where target will be a vacation, I guess I'm just not there yet.

The television ususally works, but I hate to just plant her in front of the television. I have also found that dancing around with her or reading her a book also calms her down.
