My sister-in-law got pregnant after she knew we had been trying. She just had a baby too. I'm a little mad. Should I be?

I am very thankful and excited that we have a new son, Matteo Nash. Alejandra and the baby are doing fine. But this is a bittersweet moment for my wife and I; after five years, we are now in the process of dissolving our marriage. While we have lived separately for the past several months, we remain firmly committed to raising our children in the most positive, nurturing way possible. I want only good things for Ale going forward; right now, I'm focused on ensuring that our children understand how much they're loved and adored by us as they continue to adjust to these changes. I would ask that their privacy, and ours as a family, be respected as we move forward. This will be my only statement on this.
Considering all those involved, do you think the double announcement was appropriate?
Holidays have gone to the kids — and they should, right? From tots popping out of their seats during meals to wee ones eager to rip open their presents, the festive time of year can be a bit draining on parents. We're curious what is appropriate (and realistic!) in your home when it comes to dressing up and saying thank you. Tell us!
Raising kids isn't the only thing that parents do. On last night's Parenthood, after feeling mounting pressure from his career, extended family, and Max's Asperger's, Adam triggers when a man at the grocery store makes fun of his son. Beyond the responsibilities of making good decisions for their children, a mom or dad also has to worry about finances, the future, and a myriad of other things. Are you ever overwhelmed?
Sex may not be the first thing on a new (or experienced) mother's mind, but it certainly isn't the last. A whopping 54 percent of LilSugar mothers said they had sex on or before they were six weeks postpartum. And most hot mamas weren't far behind! So we're curious once kids are in the house, what (if any) type of sex etiquette comes into play? Chime in!
