If you are an expectant parent, remember that it is not necessary to spend obscene amounts of money on furnishing your nursery. You can find many items that you will need to furnish your nursery from cribs, to sheets at department stores for a fraction of the price, without sacrificing quality. Family and friends also serve as a great resource for gently used items.
Even though time with your kids is important, it is also important to make time for yourself. Spending time on your own doing the things that you enjoy allows you to maintain your own sense of individuality.
