We spend our lives trying to fit in. Then we have kids and we compare them to all the others. Is my baby sleeping as well as others his age? Is he too big? Too small? Too this, too that? Then we wonder why they grow up wishing t...

Having a baby is hard work, and by far the most all-consuming thing I've ever experienced. Just yesterday my baby rolled off the bed after looking away for a second (yep, that happened - the baby was fine, my heart not so much)....
