Hey all! I'm a twenty-two year old, first time mother. My daughter is currently three months old. My common-law hubby is twenty-five. We own our house, and living with us as well is my mom, both my brothers and my paternal grandfather. We also have four animals, two dogs and two cats. It can be a full house sometimes!!

I came onto this site to find people to talk to that can relate to what I am going through. I have quite a few friends that have kids anywhere from newborn to two years, and a couple that are pregnant now. However, I don't feel like I can talk to any of them about certain things. I feel like I can't talk to ANYONE I know about some things (I talk to my mom and hubby about EVERYTHING). I don't feel like they would understand. So, I'm hoping to find a new friend that I CAN talk about these things with. smile.gif

Welcome!
What a full house you have!
What would you like to talk about? I ask so I can better direct you to a particular forum.
There are many supportive women here!
Best!

Oh yeah! It's hard to manage at times. smile.gif I mostly want to talk about dealing with every day issues involving my full house. It gets tough trying to take care of my baby and my family at the same time. I ask for help but I don't get much, and I'm tired of my stress affecting the relationship between me and everyone. I feel like I could hit some of them sometimes (not the baby! Just the adults).

I know a lot of it comes down to putting everything aside and just relaxing but it's really hard for me. I see a sink full of dishes and a dirty kitchen, and that's ALL I can think about until I get it done. And then the frustration gets to me, and I sometimes get annoyed when my baby starts to fuss because I'm not in the mood to deal with the crying. I don't like being frustrated with her when it's really everyone else getting on my nerves, you know?
