For most of us, we already have kids or kids on the way. How do you manage to balance both of them equally? I know the further we get closer to graduating the harder school will get. Managing time is something I am very adamant about now.

It is very tough...I feel very guilty and sad during the school semester b/c Hydi grows up so fast and I hate to miss out on that! But then I put things in perspective...if I wasn't in school all day, I would most likely be working somewhere all day and it would be the same situation b/c I would still be away from her. I would rather be in school working towards a great job that I really like, then working somewhere now that I just have to be at.
I try to spend as much time w/her at the end of the day, same w/DH...my family time is when I come home
Neither of us work Sun. so that is our family day where we go to church and then come back to the house and relax just the 3 of us.

Yeah I agree, I work part time right now and I hate where I work at. I'm hoping to move back to Memphis after my little girl is born and then finish up school while working part time. It will be hard to be away from her for so long but I know in the long run it's definitely worth it.

Let's just say that my time is very limited and I am exhausted. I work full time, attend school part time, have a 15 month old and one on the way....I barely have time to do anything...I am the last one to even think of giving advice....LOL

My hubby and I go to college and share the caring or GLora. When one of us in class the other takes care of Gloria.
