    I Wish the Peanut Gallery Would Just Shut Up

    It's frustrating sometimes, my family is always hounding me about when I'm going to get a job.  People make jokes that I'm hanging around doing nothing.  I get lectures all the time about how we cant really "afford" for me not to be working. Now what is up...

    Every morning I wake up between 4-7,

    make a nice cup of coffee, watch the news for a little while and enjoy a quiet house. This is my time. Time to do as I please. It's my favorite time of the day. I don't have to talk to anyone, or worry about how awful I look. Nothing else matters. Just me and my own little...

    I am a stay at home mum

    and have never worked in my life...well except be a mum that is. I got married soon after I graduated from college. At that time I thought I'll enjoy just staying home before I go out looking for work. Plus my husbands income was enough to take care of things for the both of...

    I worked up until the day

    before I had my daughter. Then choose to do whatever I could do make it work; lots of budgeting and couponing. I'm glad that I was able to stay at home with her these last 3 years, although I did work for 4 months last year part-time. But I think that getting a job again will...

    The Legandary Mrs. H.

    I stayed at home to raise my children for 20 years.  I chose this path after I thought I could have my career, and my family at the same time.  It was not true ... I was lied to.  So when I finally got to take home a child from the hospital, that was still alive, I just held...

    My oldest just started elm school

    and she is more aggressive, harsh and having a not-so-nice tone. And let me add disrespectful to me. We are thinking of Christian private school as a major sacrifice. I'm noticing all these behaviors only since she started public school. What do you all do to keep your kids...

    I Homeschool My Autistic Son.

    My sweet husband is a fantastic provider and, since I have a BS in Elementary/Special Education, I homeschool our darling son who is borderline autistic. Being a stay at home mom is the best, hardest, most unappreciated job in the world.

    4 Children And A Small Home

    We live in a very small guesthouse on my in-laws estate. I believe it was made for only 1 or 2 people but his family claims it was the original home for his family many years ago and that it was a larger family than we have now.  Amazing to me!  There are 6 of us and it feels...

    Well, it's a sad day.

    I just finished the last Reese's from my son's Halloween candy. Don't worry, he won't be devastated by mom eating his candy. He's only 2, and he couldn't have all that anyway.
