Parenting is hard. There is no manual. You are generally in the hospital for 2-4 days and then they send you on your way with this bundle of joy.  And then….you are on your own. We are lucky to come from a big, supportive family, and we wanted to start a blog where we could share things we have learned about parenting (and lots of other topics while we are at it). From a newbie’s view and a veteran mom’s view, we hope that our stories, successes, and failures – lots of failures –  can help you on the journey to balance mom life, work life, and your life. At the very least we hope to give you a good laugh!
