  • I got to mold my three kids exactly to my liking, watched them grow and never missed a thing, created a bond so tight that it lingers after emancipation, then sat back and watch a job well done, so satisfying..........

  • i'm still nursing so my #1 is good nutrition!
    I don't miss any of his big milestones
    I don't have to leave him with a stranger and worry
    I like having the oppurtunity to share that special bond with him and raise him my way
    and i like showing him how his mommy cleans... he's gonna be a good man who knows how to scrub toilets lol

  • 1. Spend time with my son while he is still young.
    2. I can do the housework when I feel like it instead of trying to fit them in around a work schedule. I can also go slower and am able to have my son help out and teach him as I go.
    3. Gives me more time to volunteer at things I enjoy doing.
    4. My son is in therapy 4 times a week, being able to stay home I can be with him at every appointment.
    5. Being able to do goofy, silly, fun, crafty things with my son throughout the day.
