I was in a training class with a new mom that had just returned from maternity leave ... her daughter was MAYBE 2 months old? I asked her how she was doing and she said, "GREAT! I have lots and lots of help. As a matter of fact, she's been at my grandmother's (at least a 90 minute drive) for the last 2 weeks." : There's no way I could keep the look of shock off of my face. At the time, dd was maybe 6-9 months. I responded, "It's too hard to leave dd with dh to come to work every day. I couldn't stand to be away from her overnight!" She said, "Oh, I call a couple of times a day and I go visit on weekends." She then implied that she hadn't really *wanted* to do it, but her grandmother had insisted upon taking her. HELLO ... WHO THE H*LL IS THE MOTHER HERE?
Sorry to get sidetracked ... I just don't get why some people have kids.

I'm probably not as crunchy as some around here as my kids are not clingy, man there so social that they would go off with a one eyed green hairy thing. Thank God there are none around here . Plus they pretty much sleep anywere, and we don't co-sleep. Ok you can all shoot me now.
