  • IMO, the hardest challenge today is raising moral kids in an immoral world!

  • For me it has been not being able to balance it all perfectly. I did work full-time 3rd shift and I used to stay up all day with the kids but I became a zombie so I decided to stay at home until next fall when my youngest starts school. I just get overwhelmed with it all sometimes. Being a mom is a full-time job in itself. Working an outside job was too difficult for me to handle along with the kids and all the housework. My house is still do not have a spic and span house but it is decluttered finally!

  • I admire women who work and do it all. I mean they come home, cook, clean, help kids with homework and everything else. You all deserve a metal. I just stay home and do all the mommy things. God Bless.

  • I agree with mamaford. I started working from home doing copywriting, and I had no idea how difficult it would be doing the household things, finding time for my husband, being a mom, and working. And now I have to start school in a few months as well... should get interesting real fast!

  • Having all these time-saving devices - I long for the days of the outhouse, the river/rock method of washing clothes, the months of salted ham and no fresh food. Fie on these 24 hour grocery stores.....Fie I say!
