If I hadn’t quit my corporate job, my mat leave would be ending

Many women in Canada celebrate their baby’s first birthday by going back to work.

The Joys Of Parenting

Parenting can be mundane, but only if you let it. It’s filled with many chores that are tiresome, bothersome and repetitive. It’s all about perspective. When I had my previous baby almost 15 years ago, I got caught up in the chores and I hated them. All I saw was the overflowing loads of laundry and endless dirty diapers, the frustrations from teaching my child how to eat solids or potty train. I wanted out. I sent her to daycare as soon as possible. It was the right choice for me at the time. And I didn’t know any better.

The Baby Needs His/Her Parents

I believe babies come to earth and are assigned to us as parents for very specific reasons. I don’t think it’s random. My baby needs me. Not just anyone, he needs me. He needs his dad. He needs his 14-year old half-sister who isn’t sure what to think of him. He needs his grannie (my mom) who reminds him of me at a subconscious level. He even needs his alcoholic grandpa on his dad’s side.
