anyways, i feel like im being overloaded with just everything, im trying to get use to being a sahm and i know this is something i do want to do, rather than being stuck behind a desk all day. I love my kids and i love taking care of my other kids. i just wish that i had my house again. I think i would feel better. I feel like im croweded and the kids dont have enough room to run around and play. I live in a 3 bdrm apt, it looks big enough to be a condo but no yard. its still too hot for the raymond and his friend to go out and play. i do activities and circle time with them in the late morning right before lunch. i try to squeeze in housework, and laundry and care for the babies at the same time. well anyways, Ill be caring for two newborns next month and one more toddler. Im sure ill be oka but sometimes i feel like im not giving my full attention to destiny. she is already going to be 6 months and the time has came and went. she is getting so big already. Raymond next month will be signed up for Tball so im happy that now i can be a "SOccerMom" and go see my kid play ball. ive always wanted that. I have so much winterclothes from Raymond that i need to list on ebay, i just need to make the time to go clear out my memory card from my camera.

I think this wknd ill go get a pedicure and actually feel good about myself. I started running yesterday and i did feel good building up a sweat. i want to lose at least 15lbs, Raymond doesnt seem why i should push myself if were planning on baby number 3 in December. After this baby, weve reached our maxx.

anyways, kids are great. Destiny is now sitting on her own, her first tooth is coming in slowly but can definately see it. Raymond going to start doing home stuides with him today. As for me and my hubby.. doing great!!

Being a sahm is not as easy as people think. You'll get the swing of it soon. I hope things cool down so the kids can play outside!

I think both can be hard, sahm and working mom. Give yourself a little more time to get used to it, and maybe you can get together with other moms every now and then. Even one other grown person once a week can make a big difference.

I didn't know you were planning on another one in December, good luck!!

You are actually a Work At Home Mom. I am sure it's overwhelming being so busy all day!

I think being at home with the kids all day is harder then being stuck behind a desk somedays. I mean it has it's good points and it's bad. You get to be with you kids and enjoy them, yet you job is now 24/7. As for running hey being in better shape before baby #3 is a good idea. You look good I've seen your pictures but hey if we are going to end up gaining during prenancy might as well try to start at a lower weight, and if it don't happen oh well You look Great like I said.
