Mom to Cameron (GLHS, SPD, SOD, ACC and ADHD). Cameron was born full-term on 5/19/1999. I am also mom to Mallory (born full-term on 12/10/1996), who has no issues, except being an occasionally moody teenaged girl!
I worked full-time in Corporate America for 19 years. When my husband died in 2005, I worked for two more years (until June 2007) and then I just got tired of juggling my stressful job, my kids, my house, my pets, etc. so I called it quits. I'm a stay-at-home mom now, and while I love not having to get up every day and face the office and all of it's challenges, I have to admit that I was much more disciplined and productive when I worked outside of the home....perhaps it's because I had a housekeeper to help. That's my excuse anyway.
Paul and I have been together since June 2009. He has custody of his children. There are 4 in the brood, but there are only 3 currently living at home. His oldest daughter moved out. So, between us, we have 5 kids at home. Between the kids, the 4 dogs, 3 cats and 3 horses....I'm about to pull out my hair! There is no peace time for me. But I guess this is the job I signed up for, right?
