Quoting Sarah Lee Murray:" <blockquote><b>Quoting ::Nikki:::</b>" I was a single mom from the moment my son was ... [snip!] ... with her mom, From like day one. And the only person I leave my son with is my husband, and that's only when I go to work /:"
Quite honestly, they are SO easy as babies...it wasn't until my son starting becoming mobile that taking him certain places was just more trouble than it was worth. Anything I wanted to do I could easily take him with me to do when he was tiny, there was just no reason for me to leave him with anyone. Even now I try to limit the time he is away from me, not because I dont trust anyone else to watch him or because I am overbearing, but because I simply enjoy him being with me and feel like it is my job as his mom to take care of him. If at any point you start getting frustrated with your LO, it is a lot better to take a couple of hours to yourself though then let your frustration build. All moms need a break sometimes.
