    I love your blog so much. You do a great job of incorporating humor into some seriously stressful situations. I used to blog myself. My mom had 3 of us all within a year apart. I’m a twin and my dad was never around. Not cause he didn’t want to be but because he was running a company and working all the time. My mom used to refer to him as the “weekend” dad. My husband and I just celebrated our 3 year anniversary. I’m 35. And I’m so torn about having children. I always wanted them but reality is it’s a lot of work. My husband is a Vice President of an engineering firm and also opened his own firm last year. I know he just doesn’t have the time to be involved. Do you have advice?

      Hi Sarah – thanks so much for writing. While I’m certainly not qualified to be giving advice – on marriage or motherhood – I will say that being a parent, especially a single parent, is the most challenging thing I’ve ever done. I’m lucky to have great support from family, which eases some of the pressure, but I think raising two kids age 3 and under is tough no matter how you cut it. That being said, it’s also the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. My kids can be the biggest jerks… But they can also be the sweetest jerks. I’m excited to see and help them grow into great adults and I think that’s what ultimately makes it worth it… At least I hope. Good luck with whatever you choose. Check in if you ever want to chat –
