Baton Rouge marriage help

Being a great mother isn’t just about putting the kids first. It is also about pursuing your career if desired, finding free time for pursuing your own hobbies (even if that’s a workout corner at home) and fostering an environment where everyone is comfortable. Of course, it can admittedly be challenging to find time for marriage amidst motherhood, but at Red Stick Mom we aren’t afraid to discuss healthy relationships, divorce, dating and even your sex life. Whether your children were conceived naturally, became a part of your family through adoption or were welcomed after miraculous IVF, it can be hard to stay patient with the kids and our partners at the same time.

At Red Stick Mom, our team of 25+ local Baton Rouge mom writers have a ton to discuss with regards to marriage and relationships, as we all know that good relationships take intention, hard work and many times a healthy dose of therapy.

Keeping your marriage and relationships healthy and fun can be extremely hard, but at Red Stick Mom, we also believe that it is 100% possible with a little bit of effort and a great (and honest) mom community around you. Whether it’s a fun night hanging out at home, or getting out of the house to enjoy one of the best restaurants in Baton Rouge, we understand that sometimes you just need a nudge to enjoy time with your partner.

We’ve got ideas on how to keep a strong circle of friends and family, whether it’s ways to bring new people into your life or how to keep toxic people out of your life. We’ve also got thoughts on how to find time for marriage and relationships while maintaining a tough schedule

The women at Red Stick Mom are Baton Rouge moms who understand the pressure of raising kids while also trying to make marriage work! They are willing to share everything from the book that will change your sex life, to what it’s like to raise kids as a single mom, to navigating grief amidst your marriage and motherhood.  

In light of Father's Day this month, I find myself thinking about ways to celebrate my husband. Should I have our little one make him something? Do I do a grand gesture and buy him something expensive? Do we plan a special day and enjoy it together? As I am planning and thinking about the holiday, I can't help but think about the times when I haven't wanted to celebrate him. As we all know, marriage is tough. Sometimes (especially in the middle of the beginning), it gets REALLY tough. I used to spend a lot of time nit-picking every detail in our marriage, as if I were in a power struggle with my husband. When I finally remembered that we are a...
{For just this week, we are handing over our computers to the men in our lives and turning this little piece of the world wide web into Red Stick DADS Blog!  Read along with their joys and their struggles, and find out why we are so very thankful to have these awesome dads in our lives.} ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We farm. Not your “needs a tractor and tankers of fertilizer” sort of farming but a much smaller and more personal type of farming. I work a 60hr a week job in addition to raising a family with my wife. This limits the time I can spend at any one thing. Be it playing catch with my son or teaching one of my daughters how a shovel works....
So I've been a single mom for over two years now. That feels weird to say because it feels I've simultaneously been single forever and that I'm brand new to this. Anyway, my point is, I've resorted to the dreaded world of online dating for the past 6 months. Actually, it's a funny story. My BFF took my debit card out of my wallet and registered me on Christian Mingle during our crazy Cinco de Mayo night out. But, I mean, it's CHRISTIAN MINGLE how bad can it be right??? Well, here are the times (when in the roughly 20 first dates I've been on) I knew these guys weren't the ones*. I promise you, I'm not just a...

Our New Normal

Childbirth and change. The two words go hand in hand, do they not? The moment you get pregnant, people start reminding you that "everything's about to change". Some are kind enough to add "for the better" on the end of the popular phrase. And you know it's true, it has to be - you're literally about to add an entire new person into your life and home and routine. There are the obvious things {your nights, your time}, but when we brought our little bundle of joy home, the age old adage that so many had repeated to me while I was growing her was abundantly true. Everything had changed. My usually very clean and neat house can become a...
I'm a researcher and planner by nature. I genuinely enjoy it! I like being prepared and informed and knowing as much as I can before something comes my way. So of course when I found I was pregnant, it was ON. I consumed every article and blog post I could get my hands on like a crazy person. "How to Survive Your First Trimester" turned into "Breastfeeding Basics" and then to "What to Pack in Your Hospital Bag" and "What You Need to Know About Labor & Delivery". I was ready and waiting for labor. I knew that there were things I couldn't prepare for, but I honestly felt like there wasn't much that was going to be able...
