Hello there! I'm also a SAHM and have two kids ages 8 years and 6 months. It's kind of like being a first time mom all over when they are spaced apart like that I think. I've added you as friend. Please feel free to add me back. Thanks! emoticon

Hi =]
Nice to meet you!
I'm also a sahm (well I was doing daycare from my home). I have 2 older sons 10 & almost 12 and then I had twins 2 years ago and I know the feeling about starting all over again!! I'm expecting baby #5 any day now - I'm actually due tomorrow.

I like to keep everything we do at my house low budget as well. Joe doesn't have a great job and with daycare being closed at the moment it gets tough. I also find that the homemade and low cost stuff are so much more fun for the kids to do. My oldest kids remember the crafts and made up games the most about being toddlers. They love helping out and trying to come up with new ideas to do with the twins all the time.

I too am struggling with keeping in touch with my SparkBuddies on here. I'm someone who doesn't get out of the house and socializes with adults very often because I have "too many" kids LOL, so I rely on this site to keep me sane and to support me on my way to my goals. I've been feeling a little down lately because the friends I talk to the most lately haven't been logging in very often and it's getting frustrating finding new ones just to have the same thing happen again. I can't complain too much, I used to be the same sort of member years ago over and over again - I'd be highly motivated but the results weren't "fast" enough and so I'd get down on myself and eventually log in less and less til I quit....then couple months would go by and I'd get excited again and want to give it another try. I just need to find some friends that are at the stage where I am where they're ready to lose for good this time =]

I am a sahm of 2 kids... a 13 month old and a 9 year old. I basically started all over with my newest child because i forgot everything... I'd like to come up with some fun things that are free or low cost to do with my kids. I am interested in art, reading, cooking, fitness, and organization. I am looking for some more friends/buddies that we can help keep each other motivated. Seems almost all my current friends hardly get on here anymore. Add me if you are interested and let me know so i can add you back... emoticon


Life is what you make it.

Believe in your dreams.

"There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures."-Julius Caesar
