Been a few years
Sun, 09-01-2013 - 9:28am

I'm an newbie here...was here almost 7 years ago. A husband, 2 boys, and a dog later here I am. I have been home with my boys since the day the first one ewes born. I never ever wanted to put them in childcare so here I am. Have been running a dayhome for the past 6 years with any kids who have come and gone through my home, but now my husband and I have made a commitment to get things paid off. I've done it before kids, I can do it now. I am a little rusty with how things work, but ill get around.

Welcome back,

I'm the mother of 2 young boys aged 5 & 3. This week one is starting elementary school and the other is entering preschool. There is also a parent/teacher thing Friday afternoon. That is a lot of work to miss...and I'm over an hour commute away (1hr20m). These are the times I really, really miss being there with them. DS1 is "okay" with dad but we can't guarantee he'll be there either! He is on call 24/7.

I just share this so that when you are struggling or money is tight - you know that you are still blessed bc you have that time with your children :) They will grow up and you won't regret it!
