Relationships...after becoming a mom
Relationships...changes that happen after becoming a mom.. how to keep friendships, spouse and family relationships happy and healthy? You tips and stories, moms!
I agree, Laura! Some of my friends didn't want to understand that now I am a mom and I can't such amount of time with them anymore. It was sad sometimes, but my family is my priority.
With family:I let them visit whenever they want, but they must understand that I am the parent, not them. No criticizing. With David: It's pretty much the same, but we just have to schedule things for us a bit more. With friends: We just have to schedule as well and work around baby. :)
I found that friendships were the hardest to maintain. Especially if your friends don't have kids. After you have kids you kind of slide into the "family" lifestyle and your friends are not there yet. It is easy to just drift apart.
