There is a saying I like to put into practice in my marriage; Happy Wife, Happy Life. It may be crude but the spirit behind it is true. As I mentioned in my post a few weeks ago, in a marriage it is the duty of both people to put the needs of the other first. When you have kids this usually involves food or poop… or both. But trust me guys, it is worth it; because when she is happy, she will make you happy… by making waffles! Get your mind out of the gutter, and read these 5 tips on making your Baby Momma happy!

Being a new parent has taught me a lot about myself. It is especially difficult when the these lessons expose my shortcomings. It has always been difficult for me to admit to others that I need help or I am unable to follow through with something; however, I can usually admit it to myself.

Newb Mom here again.
I am tired. I’m talking zombie tired.
I bet you think I’m writing this at 2am while nursing a hungry baby huh? Nope. Its 8:00 in the morning. A perfectly reasonable hour to be awake. Was I up all night? Nope.
