We always talk about our kids, our hubbys, what we are doing with the family, etc. Well we are all Moms so it's pretty obvious that is what there is to talk about. But, what is going on with YOU? Just you. No kids, hubbies, no one. Just you?

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,

I just recently got my name legally changed so that my husband and I finally share one (it only took two years ). I was going to get my license changed too but the DMV was super-packed when I went, so that was a definite no go. I even planned ahead to go during the supposed "less busy" time, but apparently everyone had the same thought.

I haven't really been into my own stuff recently, because I feel so crappy. Usually I draw or game or something but right now I'm just existing as a host to The Baby.

Emily, I am on the same page. I feel like my life IS Drake and DH. Not that that is a bad thing but I think you know exactly what I mean. I was just telling DH last night that it's starting to get really hard on me that I have no friends here, and no one for Drake to play with. I mean he is happy but I wish I had someone to hang with that had kids while DH works.

Yeah I know exactly what you mean. I feel the same. I really want the kids to have other kids to play with too. Some of the guys that chris works with have kids around callens age and I've tried contact them and get the kids to play together but they have ignored me. Idk so now I just give up I guess they don't like me? Its so hard to make friends. And I don't have anyone to watch the kids so I can't go out by myself. I agree Jess its really starting to wear on me.

Ya know, when I moved here I did not even think of that fact that I will have no friends, since all of mine are back East. But, since I don't have a 9 - 5 making friends is like pulling teeth. It's really hard. I mean, I go to the park all the time, but no one goes there to be social. Drake has had ONE play date his whole life. I really liked it, but then I never spoke to her again. I also do not have anyone to watch him, but sometimes I am ok with that because I feel like I would be a nervous wreck. Even though I have a hobby, I cannot do it until he is asleep, and by that time I am DEAD tired, so I do the same thing everyday. I KNOW this is what being a SAHM is and believe me I do NOT want to work, I just feel jipped sometimes. Like everyone else has someone and I have no one. Well, I know you are like me too.

At first I had to scratch my head- immediately I thought... hmmm I don't have a life outside of DH and baby. But the more I thought about it the more I realized I do!

I have 2 weeks left in my current course (Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology is my program) and then a weekend break and then will start the next course. I am doing well so far and it is very manageable (workload wise) so I am very excited to work towards becoming a Counselling Psychologist!

I am also very into the website 100 Days of Real Food - I find it really interesting! I have been changing the way I grocery shop and have been enjoying finding new recipes to try. DH is trying to lose weight too so making him healthy lunches has been fun- the experimenting part of it.

What else... I have two books that I requested that are in at the library, so I am looking forward to picking those up and getting started on them. One of a "real food" book and the other is a bubble gum Sophie Kinsella one.

Oh, and yesterday was my 29th bday, me and hubby celebrated the day before and then last night I met two close friends for supper. It was nice. And I got a mani and a pedi before hand

I am debating on going back to school to get my Bachelors degree. I want a new haircut, perm, color, or something. I am looking for a way to get some energy to do things.

How long would that take you Leslie? And, what type of job would you get with it? I would also like some energy. I feel so tired most of the time.

Since I have kids, it would take me about 3 years to get my Bachelors in Education. i currently have an AA in Behavioral Sciences. I would want to work in the school district in the special ed. dept. i can work as a para at this moment if I wanted to, but outside influences are not good for that to happen right now.

A root canal?! I have had a few of those too. I have been going through reconstructive surgery for a few years now. Sucks. I know that it costs so much. That's why this is taking so long.

We bought our first bunch of baby clothes and I am hand washing them and am blissfully happy right now. Next month, I'm going to buy a hand washing machine and wash all the baby clothes this way, so I can wash a small load every day. And that is my life.

I love baby clothes shopping! I did not even know there was such thing as a hand washing machine. I have to google this!
