>This week I had to spend a night away from my family to travel for work. Someone I work with asked me about my baby and how she was doing, as he also told me about his seven month old son. When I asked him what his wife did, he replied,”She stays home with our baby. I don’t want someone else raising my kid.” Ouch.

"What I want to say to you is that sometimes life catches you by surprise and you feel unequipped to handle what it brings you, but every bit of life you've lived before that moment equips you to live through it. That's what I would give to you."
-Fanni Victoria Green-Lemons (talking to her daughter)
If there is any secret to this life I live, this is it: the sound of what cannot be seen sings within everything that can, there is nothing more to it than that.
"The most important thing she'd learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one."
>What a butt! He obviously knew you work and have kids. Please tell me you said something back to him.
>I didn't say anything…blah, It is something that I am already really insecure about, and given that I was away from my baby for the first time, even talking about the situation may have made me cry!
>A great response is 'So your wife didn't trust you to raise your child.'Add to your arsenal there is nothing wrong with what you are doing.
>Ouch indeed! I hope that's what he said when he felt his foot kicking his own teeth.
