Hi Irene

I used to volunteer at the school when my first two were littler. But now that I have the two littles ones at home it's a bit harder, noone to watch them for me. But next year T.J. goes to all day Kindergarten and Dominic will be in preschool three days per week, so I will have more time.

nice to see you here!

free time? what's that? LOL

Hello again,
It's funny, people say how lucky I am to have sooooooo much time on my hands now that all the kids are in school. I'd like to know where that time is LOL I am just kidding, I know where it is. I am spending most of it with them at the school.
Ciao for now,
Irene

hello all

I am never quite sure if I belong with the sahm or not! I am a almost sahm! I only work 15 hrs. a week or so, in the evenings and Sat. when dh is home too watch the kids. So I am home as much as possible! Hopefully someday I can stay at home full time, but right now we can use the extra money.
I am mom to a dd almost 5 and a ds 2! Love them with all my heart, but boy do I enjoy my quiet time after they are asleep!:D
This looks like a nice site, look forward too being here more often!
Aubry

Hi Aubry

I know EXACTLY what you mean about that quiet time at night! LOL Makes me jump for joy!

I adore my kids as well, but every Mom needs that sanity break. Looking forward to getting to know you!

Hope you enjoy your time here ~

Hi!

I thought this was as good place as any to make my formal introduction after lurking and posting here and there for a week. I am a 27 yr old SAHM to a dd 4 yr old ( in a couple weeks), dh works in construction and plays in a band.
We have tons of 'critters' as you might of seen in a post in 'pets'
I make alot of stuff myself ( soaps, cleaners, shampoos....)and consider myself crafty, i enjoy making candles, sented stones, working with flowers. I have my certificate as a interior designer/decorating and as a commercial bank telller. Before I became a SAHM I also did personal home care work, elderly/special needs. If I go back to work after dd goes to school this I think is what I'll do again. I enjoy it very much.
We are from the east coast of Canada.
ummm I don't know what else to say I hate talking about me.....So what about yourselves? Hobbies?Pet's? How many dks?

Homemade crackers? Wow, I hadn't even thought of that. What type, like Saltines? Or?
