Being pregnant is a time to take care of yourself. Everyone will tell you things to avoid and things to do. You will hear old wives tales, advice from your doctor, and what other mothers have experienced. One of the most important things is just to use common sense.
Getting ready for baby's arrival is a joyous time. It's so easy to get lost in the decorating and organizing, but it's also important to pack your labor and delivery bag with all the essentials that you, your new baby, and your partner will need during your stay at the hospital.
Creating your birth plan is a great way to help you prepare for and feel in control of your birthing experience. With a little planning, research, and flexibility you are sure to have a better labor and delivery experience.
Tantrums are a necessary evil. Although it's frustrating to deal with toddler tantrums, it's important to remember they are a natural part of the growing-up process. Kids must learn to deal with their emotions and as parents, our job is to guide them through this process.
Successfully balancing work and family life can be challenging to say the least, but it can be done. The key to success is balance. Take it from a veteran mom and business professional; it is possible to have it all with a little effort, planning, and perspective.
