    I'm sitting here watching my 5 week old baby

    sleep peacefully and I'm thinking, she is the very reason I'm still married. One of two reasons, the other being her big sister. And every day for 5 weeks I have sat watching her sleep wondering if I'm going to **** her whole life up if I leave her dad. Wondering if it would be...
