KJ it is hard.
When I first had my DD I lived next door to my parents. Mom quit her job for a few months just so she could "help out". LOL, gotta love having the first GB!
So I had plenty of help. Then we moved an hour and a half away and I really struggled! I did all that I could to continue riding, playpens, nap time, and even now that she's 7 I take her up to Mom's so DH and I can trail ride. Laughed at all the posts prior because they are so true! Then add in sick days, cold/hot days they can't be out in, extra laundry, nap times, feeding times, school projects and involvement, you lose a bunch of "you" time and "freedom"!
But don't despair! You are going to need some "you" time, horses are the perfect excuse to get out of the house and away from it all!
Like MHF said, these days I get almost as much pleasure giving up my riding time to give DD lessons. Almost...
You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!! What do you mean what do I mean?
