I've been apart of iVillage for a few months not but have not partipated in the forums. I figured the other day I may as well jump right in so here I am.
I am Jamie. I have five children at home (ages R is15, A is10, B is 5, K is 3, and N will beone year on the 17th). I lean toward the natural/attached ways of parenting. We live in a rural town in the Southern Tier of New York where we own a home, a small business. My first priority is my children and Daddy mans the biz location while I stay home with the kids 5 days out of the week. Two days out of the week-give or take- the kids and I go there so I can work and bake.
We have three dogs and 2.5 cats; two cats are ours and we have one that's a stray that we feed and care for).
I will refer to my five year old son as "B". He loves Angry Birds, trains, Monster Trucks, and playing restaurant. I homeschooled preschool with him at 3 and 4 and he started public school Kindergarten last month.
