Balancing act

Being pregnant with your first child is kind of like jumping into the unknown. You know things are going to be different, but you're not exactly sure how. You try and prepare yourself, but despite your best efforts, parenthood is a club reserved for those actually living it.

What Ben and I know for sure is that our lives will never be the same. Part of what scares me the most is juggling so many important priorities at once. How do we make time for our baby, our marriage and ourselves?

Obviously, it's all baby all the time when you bring your newborn home. That's an adjustment that you can only work on one day at a time. But I appreciated these suggestions from a Bay area blogger on how to be a happier parent in the long-run.

  1. Good article, and I don't even have babies on my horizon... I think you/that writer are right on. And you've always been fair and very good at balance - you also seem to really find the joy in little things! That's probably key. I wouldn't worry - you're going to be one happy momma, I just know it. :)


Thanks for reading!
