Kids at school, now what?

So my kiddos are both at big kid school now.  They are happy to be there.  And I am so excited for them to be there.  It is so exciting to see the world expanding in their eyes.  The problem is I feel so lost during the half day that they are both gone.  I did not see that coming.  For the past 7 yrs. I've been home with them.  But we've had plenty of time each day not interacting with each other.  Now, I watch my youngest get on the bus and think, "now what?"  I've been spending money like crazy....more

Lots of kids?

I am a first time mom and have always said that I want a big family (I am an only child).  Even though I'm only 9 months into mommyhood, I really love it and have no doubt that I still want that big family.  I just wonder how people handle the absolute chaos of having so many kids.  Are there any moms of 5 or more out there?  How do you balance everything and stay sane? If you are up for a daily laugh (or sometimes cry), visit my blog:

A Dozen Reasons Why I am Thankful for Being a Mom

I am thankful for being a mom of the sweetest little thing I ever had:  my daughter. … for kissing my flaws thinking that I am perfect; … for needing my arms as she lays to sleep; … for laughing while she’s crying as I transform into a tickle monster; … for being happy with little things we share; … for testing the level of my sanity when her endless tantrum begins; … for reminding me that the daily routines we do together are actually different, and each day I learn from it; … for training my resistance to patience; ...more

:) so sweet
