Hi my name is Christina Burke. I have an energetic son Robert, AKA Robbie. I work full time as a trauma PA. I work about 12 extra hours a week to pay the bills. About 8 shifts are over night. So most days I'm exhausted or running around to get things done. My son is not in daycare. My husband and I have worked our schedules so one of us is always home because we just can't afford daycare. I've noticed even though we do lots of play dates n trips to the park ect. He seems not as socialized as most kids his age. He's good once he gets to know the other kid but that usually takes several 1:1 play dates. If anyone has any advise I'd greatly appreciate it.

Hi! I'm Joanna. I'm a first-time mom to my beautiful (now) 9 month old son. I work full-time as a marketing & public relations specialist. I literally worked up until the day before I gave birth and returned to work after 3 months off. Those weren't done out of choice but out of necessity. I have a very supportive husband who helps out tremendously around the house and with our boy. I am still trying to find that balance of full-time worker and full-time mom. Sometimes I'm great at it, other times I feel like I suck :) Sometimes I wish I could be a stay-at-home mom; other times I'm grateful for the few hours of the day where I can be around adults and eat one meal out of the day (lunch) in peace without being rushed. It's a constant struggle and I'm happy to have a found a network of women juggling the same issues.

Hi Victoria, I know just how you feel. I have a 9 month old. I returned to work in December when he was 12 weeks. It was, and still is, very hard. But it DOES get easier to deal with. Now, I try to think of my time at work as my "me" time. (Sad, right?) but, nonetheless, it's my time to interact with adults and sneak some time in the day to get online. Also, I get to eat lunch in peace without hurrying through a meal like I do at home. It's those little things that I try to appreciate about being on my own for those hours of the day. And, I used to think my son isn't going to recognize me but he does. He gives me a huge smile when I get home and we play together. I bathe him and put him to sleep and that's our "mommy/son" time. It gets easier :)

Hi, I'm a married & FT working mom of 2 kids. One is a teen, the other will be entering preteen age next month. I'm always looking for tips and advice on how to make time for everything. My kids are very active - baseball for my son and dance for my daughter. Sometimes it so busy, that I get home with only enough time to change my clothes and then we are off. Days like this make me feel so guilty because we end up eating fast food and I've been trying to make more home cooked meals. I would love to stop feeding my family so much fast food, but sometimes it just feels impossible.

My little one is 6 months old and I stayed on maternity leave until she was 3 mos. I'm a teacher so I get summers off, but as a teacher I need money during the summer as well. I'm on spring break now and I've enjoyed my extra time with my baby girl. This will be the first summer that I won't work so that I can hang with my love bucket.

Hi everybody, I'm Stephanie, I have a 4 year old daughter. I take everyday in stride and do what I can to learn and be there for every important 'milestone''s she'll experience. I love my baby, she's who I live for. Unfortunately her father chooses not to be a part of her life, uses her as a pawn almost, like it's a game. It's sad, but we're the ones that have to answer all the questions about 'daddy', and I do believe it's important to not 'bash' the other parent (his absence is enough emotional stress on the poor kid, ya know?) But other than that, she's a happy, healthy, smart lil lady. I would love to find some kind of legitimate work online from home, searching the internet for something that doesn't want you to pay/take a survey is d**** near impossible. lol.
