I have 3 young children and I know the transition is tough sometime's I leave the kids with my husband while I go to the grocery store just to feel like I'm back in society.I love being a mother but I love balancing work and family too for my own sanity

It gets better! Just wait til all of these little firsts start happening, and you just are SO EXCITED to tell people. Watching them develop and grow into this 'little person' with their own personality, and knowing YOU helped shape them!! I have a 26 month old daughter, and my son will be 4 months on the 5th and I have been home since 6/07, so I know what you mean. - And if and when you have another (mine are 22m10d apart), you get the joy of watching your older one interact with the younger one. My daughter was colic, bad... my son, total blessing and he was a surprise and she LOVES him, so much. (Granted the toy factor isn't happening yet) It's slow in the beginning, but just wait! You'll probably look back soon enough and say, why didn't I do it sooner. Take it day by day and just remember they have their good and bad days like we do. Congrats on your 1st! Their so much fun. GOOD LUCK.
