Starting Out

After reading other people's blogs for about a month now, I decided I was ready to start. So who am I? I am a stay-at-home mom of three: A and B (my three and a half year old twin boys) and J (my one and a half year old daughter). I have been happily married to my husband for over ten years. I also provide full-time daycare to DN-A (my two and a half year old nephew) - four days a week, 10 hours a day. I am president of my local MOMS Club (Moms Offering Moms Support). I also teach part-time at my synagogue and run a "Moms Morning Out" program on Tuesday and Thursday mornings here at my house for three extra kids. I know it sounds like a lot, but I'm doing what I can so I can afford to stay home and send my boys to preschool. In my "former life" I was an elementary school teacher who also loved singing and performing in community theater. I don't know what exactly I'm going to use the space to say, but figured this was a start. Okay, off to put J down for a nap and set the boys up with a video for "quiet time."

Hi Rachel. I want to congratulate you on the launching of your blog! I'm Elizabeth from Flying in Delco. I am currently a SAHM, too. I love it! I am seriously considering doing day care in my home. It is the only way I can be here and make money. As an elementary teacher, it's right up my alley. I hope blogging will be a nice way for you to have some "me" time. You do sound busy. I share your belief that it's worth it.

Take Care,
Elizabeth

Hi Rachel. I just wanted to pop on and check out your new blog page. So far so good. I'm not a blog writter or reader only because i'd have to make time for it and thats such a struggle in my life right now mananging time but I think it's a good thing to do for yourself. You express your feelings and emotions and cares which is like chicken soup for the soul kind of.
Good luck with it sweety.
