Hello? Is there anyone out there?

Whew. If there's anyone still out there, you were probably wondering where I went. Unless I was with you 'in-real-life,' in which case you knew.

I'm beginning to feel like all I do is work, and it's very overwhelming. Even worse, I feel like I'm just 'squeezing in' parenting Maggie, and that was the exact opposite of the reason I wanted to be at home with her. But I don't know how to stop. There are bills around here I'm expected to pay, and occasions where I need to have money for food or gas or whatnot, so I need to work. I'm literally crying right now because I already miss being a mom to Maggie as she grows up so fast.

Oh! She and her daddy just got back, so my little break is up - I need to hold my little girl!

I am sorry you're feeling overwhelmed and I wish there was something I could say to help.

Just steal the moments you can. Hang in there.

Aww, I completely understand... atleast you're able to be with her during the day, even if you are busy. I drop Brynn off at daycare at 7:30 and I don't get home until 6:00. It's a long day.

I know where you're coming from, it sucks that all of these other things get in the way of what we want - spending time with our littles and family. Like Girl said, steal the moments that you can and hang in there!

I am so sorry you are feeling this way... I wish I could help you but the whole state of Ohio is in between us! I do know though that you are doing a great job with Maggie... she is obviously a very happy and bright little girl!

Aw, I can totally relate! I just went back to work and though it's only part time, those 4 hours a day are 4 hours I could be playing with my son!
Hang in there!

It's hard being a working mom. You should see how fast I drive to pick Carter up from daycare.

You've got to be doing something right because she is a very well adjusted happy lil girl. I think what you need is a weekend away. How about this weekend?

She seem to be doing better then great so you are doing a great job. She needs time where she is not entertained too.
