We adopted our two youngest when I was 39 and 40. I became a stay at home dad and I only occasionally missed the work-a-day world. I also homeschooled the boys. It was hard work and I think well worth it.

Hi Margie,

Welcome to the team. I have 3 children and my kids love the recipes out of the SparkPeople cookbook. You'll have to let us know what you think of the baked goods.

Hi everyone. I know it's been said time and time again, "A baby will totally change your life," but until you have actually experienced that change, you're clueless! At least I was. I am 40 years old and just had my first child (yes some of you just freaked out). I'm JUST starting, and what is incredible is how I am looking and life now. I want to be around for him and his children, so I know because I'm already 20 years behind most people, it is really going to take me being more serious about my health.

So here I am. Decided to stay home with him and homeschool also when that time comes. I've been in the workplace 24 years, so it's been a huge shock. I am actually surprised that I am eating a lot less at home than at work, and over all, eating better. I started a home bakery, uh yeah, so now more than ever I have a need to watch my weight. I bake "grandma style," so there are lots of calories to take in when testing new recipes. I have to be diligent the remainder of the time.

I love trying new recipes, Looking forward to getting involved here.
