hello my names is rebecca, for those of you who dont know me i am a stay at home mother of a three year old daughter named Lucy, and a three month old name Joshua. My daughter like most three year olds can be a hand full. But she is extremely sweet, her brother is a sweet happy baby who hates mondays and i cant blame him i do as well. He gets cast put on and taken off every monday for at least 6-8cast changing then he gets special boot connected by a bar until he is five. They are to straighten his feet. Most days seem to fly by with the amount of work there is to do around the house. My husband works two jobs so he is rarely home he recently started this as a way to make extra money to save money to build a house. His first job is three nights a week and three days for deliveries and such when he unable to make the deliveries the kids and i do those. His second job is is 3-4 days a week working a a security guard (he a manager for both jobs). We have two cats two dogs a tank ful of fish and 31 chickens from 2 months old to a year old and two ducks about 2 months old now. I have a large garden as well we hoping to get some other farm animals soon to help produce our own food. I try to bake all of our bread and ect. I been having a blast living this way. This is a thread i wanted to start for stay at home parent for advice and support and for us diy for tips and recipes. God bless from my family to yours!!
