Amanda,
I'm not really sure yet what type of crackers!:p
But I did get a few receipes today that sound pretty easy and good! Someone even gave me a web address with alot of different cracker receipes on it! I'm always on the look out for snacks for the kids besides junk food! And I like making things from scratch so that I control the content and the costs!
Right now my kids think I'm a great mom becase I have been letting them eat "cookies" for breakfast! I made up huge batches of dry oatmeal muffin mix. Then I can just pull out what I need, and make it up. And I make it with mostly whole wheat flour, I cut the sugar in half and the shortening by a third, so its pretty healthy. One day I was out of muffin papers, so I threw in some raisins and cinnamon chips and dropped them like "cookies" and they were a hit! Breakfast cookies!!!

Sometimes as 'junk food' for dd I'll make a biscut dough and add flavor to it, bbq spice, taco seasoning, cheese ( powdered)..
instead of making them in to traditional biscuts I take pieces about the size of a peanut and bake it in the oven. You get something like Nippers, dd likes them and they taste good so why not

Exclamation Recipe ideas

Hey, those are some great sounding snack recipes! If you haven't done so already, why don't you pop over to the Recipe Exchange forum and post them there? If you've already done that, just ignore me.

I'm also a SAHM.
I have 2 boys (20 month old and 8 week old), so I am just getting adjusted to having 2.

Would love to meet other SAHMs and get tips/info on raising 2!

Hi Kat!

2 is nothing compared to having 3... I'm not saying it's easy with 2, but it's a lot tougher with 3..especially ALL boys!

My advise..Make time for yourself. I have 2 home business', and my time is spent on the computer as well as taking care of the kids, housework, cooking...ect...

I try to steal at least 15 minutes to sit and do nothing, or read..I love computer games..so last night instead of working on the computer like I usually do..I played a game that I haven't even looked at in almost a year. So do something that you enjoy doing.

My 2 youngest boys are 14 months apart, so it is definitely rough, but well worth it. The boys LOVE each other, and at the same time fight a lot.

Great talking to you!
Kim

Hi! I just registered and figured I would introduce myself. I am a former Army Orthopedic tech, married to another Army member. We have 2 girls ages 2 1/2 and 6months. I have thought about doing some work at home, but am afraid it will take away my time with my girls. It seems like there is so little time with them and my husband travels so much, that it seems like I am managing his life as well. I guess in a way I am, but sometimes it is hard to keep up with. I have thought about homeschooling for several reasons: 1. DC schools are horrible 2. military life means moving around a lot 3. want our children to learn our values not what society necessarily says is right.

I also have a dog, Juliet who is a "pound puppy". She will be 2 on April 1st, she is a black and white Springer Spaniel.

This is the first time I have joined a forum, so hopefully I am doing this right.

Betsey
