    I Rarely Get It

    Space that is. All morning long at work, I get very little space as I care for very young children. I love kids, but they don't give you much space. Then the rest of the day I am with my two small kids. My daughter especially is always on me, like a cat. I love that she...

    Of Course, I Need My Space!

    You know....I really took freedom for granted when I was single and without a child. Now I have a baby to take care of, and I tell you I need some me time. I need some away-from-everybody-and-every-breathing-thing- time! I can become pretty mean when I don't get my...
