As mothers, there is an expectation from ourselves and others (but mostly ourselves), that we are supposed to know what to do when our baby is having sleep issues. (We’re not all given that handbook ladies!!!!) Often we wish we had someone to bounce ideas off or someone we trust to guide us in a new direction to achieve that elusive all–night sleep.
So, what’s this doing on a parenting blog? I hear you ask. Well you see, it is about parenting. Not about setting your kids up for the future so they won’t become homeless. It’s not about the importance of education. It’s not about encouraging your kids to make the most of their lives. You know all that. What this is a bout is US!
I wanted a baby since I was 21yrs old. My husband and I married when I was just 21 and he was 27. But we were in a new country with no family and only a few friends. Starting new jobs and I was studying to become a Nurse and working as a Nursing Assistant at the same time.
