When should my baby walk you may be asking yourself. Or perhaps your question revolves around another developmental milestone like sitting, crawling, or talking. As moms, we become major worry warts and comparison queens. Is my kid eating enough, talking enough, sleeping enough? Why is everyone’s kid but mine sitting already, crawling already, walking already? We all want what’s best for our kids. But, we’re also putting way too much stress on ourselves and our kids way too early.

I was about 7 months pregnant when Trump was elected. I was devastated…not just because my party had lost or because I didn’t care for Trump. I’d seen other Republicans get elected before but it didn’t instill the same fear. I was 7 months pregnant with a little girl and I now feared for her future. I had just witnessed a man get elected to the highest office who had been accused of sexual abuse of several women and by his own words showed his disdain for women.
My little girl turns 1 today! It really does go so fast. To honor that I’m finally writing up our birth story. Luckily I tracked down what I posted in my online mom group as some of the details are already getting hazy.
I was so excited when we got pregnant with our little girl. I read lots of books about giving birth and my husband and I took classes to try to prepare for a more natural birth.
The truth is that parenting can be lonely…even for us married ladies. I sat at my table tonight eating dinner alone, again, as my husband had tagged me out and took over trying to get our daughter to bed. I kept her up so he could see her when he got home, so she was overtired and fighting sleep hard. I had waited to eat so that we could eat together for once as he often has school or work in the evening.
