Thanks, Selena, that was just what I needed. One of the hardest parts for me is the discipline but another is not having someone to share the joy and pride. The Chunky Monkey is growing teeth and learning to walk; he's already walking if he can hold onto the sofa or something. It's great to share that with family and friends, but there's something special about sharing that with the other parent. That's something I can't do because he left when I told him I was pregnant and hasn't looked back.

I was all prepared to rant and rave about my son's SD and insensitive married couples who feel it is so hard to get up at night with the baby or stay late at work or cook dinner every night or live on one income so there is a SAHP or go to school and work, all of which I have to do because there is no one else. ARRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!


Thanks, I feel better. ;-)
