Re: Time to Train with Arrival of New Baby

Like many here, I have a 3-month old, and I scaled back my training from 3 to 2 nights a week. I would like to think only for the moment, but who knows.
My wife knows how important my training is for me (she is also an Aikidoka), and sometimes I feel guilty, but she does have her Yoga one night a week and my support any other evening she might need. The difficulty will arise when she wants to return to her training; that's where the grandparents come into the picture!

You are right though, there never really is a "good" time. There are perhaps less-worse times, and this sounds like it.

Congrats on the baby, and welcome to the wonderful world of Aikido.
