Yes, those sandals may be the cutest thing ever. But a UK mom of a two-year-old girl was horrified to find that a pair of simple jelly shoes - a birthday present, no less - left her daughter's feet in a bloody mess.

The first time I had to leave my son alone in the NICU, it almost tore my heart out. I delayed our departure as long as I possibly could, finding reasons why we couldn’t leave yet. One more lullaby, one more story, one more kiss. I sat in that rocking chair beside him, late into the night, stifling yawns and counting the hours until I knew we would be back.
There are many things I love about being a WAHM (that's work at home mom, for those in the know). There is almost never a traffic jam in my commute (unless I have to go anywhere near the bathroom - one is just NOT enough for 4 people)! Every day is casual Friday, and yes casual means pyjamas and/or a bathrobe. Plus I can multi-task with the best of them, getting in a load of laundry, a quick workout and catch up on my latest Netflix addiction all on my lunch break! All of those perks start to lose their shine once summer rolls around, though.
Katia is the mother of two boys, a toddler and a preschooler. She is chronically overwhelmed and would like to use this opportunity to apologize for not returning your call/email/text. As someone who both worked as well as stayed at home as a mom she understands the special advantages and challenges that come with each territory. While taking her second maternity leave Katia started fulfilling a lifelong dream to write and make people laugh. (And sometimes cry, which wasn't her dream nor intention.) She blogs about her family on IAMTHEMILK , a Wordpress recommended blog in the Family category. She also gives job search advice on her website Recruiter Mommy but some of her best work can be found on Twitter @KatiaDBE.
