I am a stay at home mom of 5 children (22, 15, 13, 12, 11). I am married to a wonderful man for almost 16 years now. We married after a 6 month dating period after meeting in the most amazing way (if you want to know how just ask!). Our oldest daughter is married to a nice Navy guy and they have a beautiful 2 yr old boy. They now live in SC so we don't get to see them often enough.
I am not complaining here so please don't take me wrong, I have always had the Wife hat, the Mom hat, the Friend hat and the YES Woman hat on and have decided to take them off. Right now, I am adding a NEW hat first and that is the ME hat. I have always been one to put everyone first in my life and say YES to any request made of me. I am excited to say that now I am using the word NO more often and putting a little more of ME first. This adventure here on Spark People will be all for me along with all of you! I am on a mission to achieve all that I have pushed aside and now I am ready to do what it takes. Hope to meet you all soon!

    Thanks Glenna! That's the crazy thing about donating blood. Honor doesn't work getting people in the door. I'm trying for guilt!!

    Keep up the good work yourself!! emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for the friend add and kind comments! I don't know many people with 5 children, either! We have two boys (17 and 15) and three girls (12, 10, and 7).
    2009 was definitely a difficult year for our family, but it has really made us appreciate the little things so much more!

    I know what you mean about wearing so many different hats and putting others first. It is so hard to do for ourselves, but we must, and everyone else will be happier/ better off if we do!
