My 3yr old daughter was playing with 2 different sized crayons yesterday. The bigger one was mom and the smaller one baby! The imaginitive conversations that followed were the best entertainment ever!

Of course, the bigger crayon spoke in a mild and sweet tone while the smaller crayon kept yelling back 'NO, I WANT SOMETHING' We're probably doing something right as parents.. 不不

FTM - Im just curious on how some of your maternity leave is set up. I received short term disability pay for 6 weeks and then paid from my job for 6 - they offered additional bonding time, but unpaid. The paid portion came from my sick time. I wasnt sick, I was caring for and bonding with my son. Thats been bothering me since I returned. Now I dont have any sick leave and any last minute time that I need to take is unpaid. Other countries give moms the entire year, 100% paid 打
