Hi! I'm Amy. I'm 22. My husband and I have been together for a little over 4 years and we got married September 4th last year. We have two kids, our son Kaiden, who is 20.5 months (born October 15, 2010) and our daughter Maiya, who is 1.5 months (born May 16, 2012). My husband works full time so I'm at home all day with the kids. I'm going back to school this fall for my Bachelor of Arts Degree.



I'm looking for other moms to talk to who can relate to me :)

I don't get out much either. I am 28, my husband & I have been together 6 years & married 5. We have a very demanding 4 year old daughter. We both work. Luckily we have a really great preschool that she goes to. When we get home, she demands most of my attention (dad doesn't help much with anything, including her.) I am dying to have some "ME" time or even just friends to speak with during the day. Just reading on this site, if I take a break at work has helped alot, to know I'm not alone in this. I live close to Dallas, TX & most of my friends that I had before kids have moved away. The few parents I meet these days seem to party all the time & send their kids off with family members. I don't like that either. I cherish my time with my daughter since I have to work. Any of you feel free to message me, would love to make some new friends.

Hi Amy,

My name is Brooke. I have been married for almost two years. My husband and I have a five year old daughter and twin six month old boys. My husband works full time and I chose to be a stay- at- home mommy when I had the twins. It has been quite the adjustment! I graduated with my B.A. in December. I know how demanding it can be to go to school while raising children. What is your degree in? Mine is in Early Childhood Education. I'd love to chat if you are interested!

Hi Amy! I'm 25. I'm in a similar situation. My fiance and I have 2 children between us; my 3 year old son and his 10 year old daughter. He works full time and I've been a stay at home mom since April. I'm returning to school this fall, starting Saturday. I only have to complete one semester. However, I have concerns of managing my time. I understand it's a balancing system and it will provide a better life once I'm done but a small part of me feels guilty in a way.

Hiya All :) I'm Sam,23, with my hubby to be 5 years....not quite made it down the aisle yet lol. We have a gorge lil girl who is 14 months and are due baba number 2 in January 2013 all going well. If we have a lil guy I'm done and dusted having babies but if we have another little girl I would like to go again.
Hubby to be is a store manager and works 10hour shifts so I can relate to being home alone with baby. I'm the first person out of my friends to have a baby so I find it hard to find people my own age or similar to chat to.
Has any one else found that since they're a mum people no longer invite them out or include them in plans ?
As for the not wanting to go out,I'm not a big party person either but I was away for a hen weekend and it was torture. I cried everytime I got off the phone to lil miss and when her and her daddy came to meet me at the train station I bawled crying as if it had been months since I saw her lol.

Hey! I'm Megan, 23 married for 3 1/2 years. My oldest son will be 3 on the 17th of this month and my baby boy will be 1 August 10th. My husband works in the oilfield as a commercial diver so we spend a lot of time alone without him. It also makes it difficult for me to work, which I'm totally ok with cause I can't imagine leaving my babies. I go back to school in August to finish my degree. I find it pretty difficult to find young families to relate to especially since where we live is mostly retired people!

Maybe i will do the year also but kinda wean her gradually try get her take my breastmilk from a sippy cup. she can hold cup now been handing it to her with milk in it my own milk but she just cant suck milk out, my daughter same way i give in cant listen to her ben upset sometimes she wont settle for anyone i have do it myself, my mum had 8 off us and sometimes she wont even settle for her... ppl keep telling me we have her spoilt, if she is it wasnt on purpose we only have her so obviously she gets alot attention.. dr can be helpful sometimes ur public nurse can be good.. if u have one... everyone says do different stuff can be over whelming at times... advice i was giving about trying wean baby is leave the house for a short bit get someone else to feed the baby as a baby can smell u even if ur in another room. a lady from le lech told me that!!!!

Hey Amy,
I'm 24, my husband and I will be married for 6 years Aug 4...still going strong and completely in love!!
We have 2 boys, Gabriel 4 1/2 (9/14/07) and Michael 13m (05/12/12), we definitely want more kids, at least 3 more. :)
I intend to go back to school for midwifery eventually but it isn't a high priority right now. Planning on training to be a Doula and lactation consultant for now.

i almost had that with my 2nd chlild i had too much fluid so they had to monitor me every week, its normal for them to be runny where your only breastfeeding n when you start baby food or formula than they will start being thicker. my son still has thgem when he doesnt want to eat baby food but if i were ou id start trying to introduce a bottle now because my son will be 1 in auagust n he wont even take a bottle im not sure how to stop him from wanting breast milk

Im same way having my daughter was the best thing ever and i just wana be there all time but unfortunetly i will have to go back to work at some stage but we will see what happens, i got pre-eclampsia at near end of my pregnancy so it was difficult but it was worth it all.. dose ur son have really runny nappies im finding it hard to know whats normal or not? i dont know anyone thats breastfed so have no one compare it to... also she used have lots dirty nappies per day but now she goes few days with no dirty nappy is this normal ? :)
