Relationships seem to get strained when life get us. An addition of a baby can take away from your partners time with you. Work can get in the way. Hobbies get put on the back burner. Love just seems like second place.  Anybody ever feel this way?

I do in some instances and It seems like my wife can sense it as well. Our son is the best thing that has happened to us but that si the one thing that seems to make my wife and I on edge with eachother. She may think I am not doing anything around the house and I think I am. Life just gets tough.

Keep adding little things to the piggy bank of love. I DO need to do more around the house. I think that will make her feel more loved and help our relationship out. I also think that we just need to spend more time alone when we can. Drop our sone off at a friends house or our parents houses. go out on a date and agree to not talk about your child.

Does it ever seem like your marriage or relationship is stretched thin? any tips?

The internet really astonishes me sometimes. I was looking for some suggestions of baby toys for my child. He really likes to be held. I mean, he REALLY likes it. I can lay him down and he will cry like crazy. Needless to say, We needed to make a change and figure out how to keep him busy and break him of his need to be held.

I stumbled onto a site that is about babies. The site in called There were a number of recommendations for toys that they thought worked well for babies.  Even some recommendations for “high maintenance” As this site call them.

I read this post: Tips for a High-Maintenance Baby

Some babies seem born content and the able to entertain themselves.  Others seem they constantly need to be held, walked, played with, and entertained every moment of the day or else they put up a fuss.  Does your baby sound like the latter of the two?  You just may have a high-maintenance baby.

I read the first paragraph and though she had my son. I even contacted the site owner to see if they stole my baby of had a twin.  Anyways, the sugestion about the moby wrap was awesome! I had never heard of such a versatile baby accessory. I have seen the ones that only cradle the baby next to you but it sounds like the moby wrap is pretty configurable and versitile. I may need to pick one up for my wife(oh, and me as long as I have the blinds shut).

I suggest you check the site out if you need ideas. There are some really good product reviews as well. I sure am into my baby so the title of the site is fitting.

Tiger Woods has really messed up his life, family, and fans. He spent a lot of time on the road touring with the PGA. His fame got to him and I think he abused that fame. Unfortunately some women are into famous men. Tiger obviously let his guard down and was temped one to many times. He finally gave in and it became easier and easier to cheat on his wife.  I am sure he got addicted to what he was doing. The delicate house of cards he built has come crashing down.

His life could be on the verge of being decimated. His golf career hangs in the limbs as does his sponsorships…etc.  He made the news and that is all every one talks about.

Lets talk about a normal guy. Gets bored with his wife or gets temped at work with a pretty coworker who is single.  He may have drifted away from his family as he worked long hours or traveled a lot for work. He has a moral failure and cheats on his wife with another woman. I can’t imagine how his wife and kids would feel when they found out.

Men need to be true to their wives and familes.  Stay true and solid in your relationship with your wife. don’t let work get between your family and you. Take time off to enjoy your family and kids.  Leave the baggage of work out in the tree in the front yard. Find another man to talk things through. Someone who can hold you accountable.

Don’t have your own Tiger woods Dilemma.
