I'm new here, and am so happy that there's a place where us moms can escape and get to know eachother! Here's a little about my family and I: I'm 29 years old and have two beautiful children with the love of my life. My son Nathaniel (Nathan) is 5 and getting super excited to go to school here very soon. He's super smart and always wanting to learn. My daughter (Holly) is 6months old now and is growing like a weed, obsessed with her big brother. Nathan is such a good big brother (kind of shocked me that he is after being an only child for so long). Miss Holly had a rough and scary start in this world. When I was 7months pregnant the doctors started monitoring her twice weekly because she was so small. At 8 months they found that she just wasn't growing and my amniotic fluid was getting dangerously low. Upon further testing they found her not moving much and at high risk for being stillborn. Needless to say they decided to do an emergency c-section (she was still breech) to prevent this from happening. We were all sooo scared! I couldn't hold back the tears until i heard her cry for the first time. LOL then I started crying even more out of relief. She wound up weighing 3lbs 13oz and had to stay in the hospital for 2 weeks. These were hard times for us! Josh and I decided that it would be better for me to stay at home with the kids at this point. Especially since Holly was a premie and was at higher risk for any illnesses. During this time I found out a big reason why this happened to her (obviously it was a combination of things but this was the big one). I found a company that educated me on what the FDA reports say on our everyday household products and the side effects on the whole family. There are hidden chemicals that are legally put into our cleaning products, personal hygiene items, baby washes, lotions, and so much more! Alot of these cause (long term and short term effects) still birth, infertility, low birth weight, early periods in girls, cancer, eczema, asthma flare ups, chronic ear infections, and soooo much more!! I was appauled!! But so happy that I was at home where I could change things for the future! I decided that I wanted to educate more people about this so I started working from home. Sooooo many benefits from this! :-) I don't have to pay daycare to raise my children for little money left over after daycare! SO many other reasons benefit us by me doing this too. Anyways, enough about me.........Tell me about yourself! I want to meet more people and get to know you all!
