Ok so my son just turned one year old. Had the big party with lots of family over and cake, presents, the whole works. It was great and I love my son to death but I just cant remember who I am anymore besides being a mom. When you have a child you definately have to sacrifice a lot but in my case I feel like I've sacrificed so much that there is just nothing left of me. So all you veteran parents out there, please let me know when I will find me again. Any advice at all will definately be appreciated.

I don't know...my kids are 6 & 2 and I still wonder who I am most of the time!! My husband will ask me what I want and I automatically think about the kids, like for dinner I always think McDonald's because the kids love to eat there. He recently has made me get out of the house by myself so I can have time away from the kids (so I don't go crazy) and at first I was so mad at him because I didn't know what to do...the first time I went to the park and read a book!! Now I go shopping or to the movies by myself. It is great, but it was hard at first because I had to try really hard to figure out what makes me happy. Just try to do the same thing and see what you enjoy doing =)
