Alright, well I have made a few other posts but figured I should add something here.
First of all I am a full-time working mother of three wonderful children (I use the word wonderful lightly some days, after all I do have a teenage daughter). Actually they are great kids and I adore them. Katherine is 15yrs old, Khryscynda is 10yrs old, and Nadezdha is my baby (6 months presently) and my little miracle.
My husband is a SAHD and I am grateful that at least one of us can be with our baby to keep her safe. He can be a little addicted to his video games in the evening, but we all need a break I guess and he takes awesome care of me and the kids. Anyhow, he stays home by my choice - Because of my paranoia that something will happen to her while in the care of someone else (did I mention she was my miracle baby?) - , not really his. While things are tight at times we manage to get by because we have what we need, and the wants are stuff we work for and teach our children to do the same.
We moved to Michigan a little over a year ago to be with my family close by, and the next chance I get to be transferred with my work, then I will be taking the opportunity to bail. I hate this state and the people here, not to mention the horrible economy that had drained the life out of it.
