I'm Alycia pronounced like Alicia. Lol I'm 24yrs young I'm 5'5 or 6" not sure about that and currently 140lbs, became a mom at 18. I have been out on my own since I was 16, so I taught myself how to cook, mostly from boxed foods, but am trying really hard to steer away from them. I don't know many things, like kale, juicing, etc. But I enjoy learning. I have been a sahm/house wife for 6 years now!!! I have Joseph who will be 6 next month he is 49" & 60lbs, an angel baby that left October 11, 2008, my dear daughter Caylin (KK) who just turned 3 38lbs & 42" and my last child Benjamin that will be 4 months in a couple days.

I'm 42, got married when I was almost 32 and had my first child at age 34 (second at age 38), so I'm an older mama! LOL Got my degree (Written Communications and Spanish) at Blackburn College and rarely use it, but still LOVED the experience. Lived in AZ for 10 years before moving back to my home state of IL.

My mom and Aunt both had kids when they were 40. That's incredibly cool about your degree! I wanted to go to college in AZ! Sorry you don't get to use it though.. Is there something else you'd like to get a degree in?

I would hate all that moving! We live near EAFB and I had friends moving all the time.

It blows my mind how much you & my mom have in common. I know I've said this before, but my moms name is Yvonne, she has 28,27,24,&13 yrs old. She was 40 with my sister. We are also 11 years apart.

I'm Rhonda, and I live in the northern half of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan.  I hate it here during winter and spring...and most of summer.  I've lived here my whole life, but now at the age of almost-47 (in January) the cold and mud and extreme heat really get to me.

I have 5 kids ranging in age from 12 to 25 (almost 26).  I've also had a miscarriage.  I never had problems getting pregnant -- in fact, only one of those kids was planned and the rest are all BC failures.  Yep, failed condom, failed BC pill, 2 are from failed vasectomies.  The 4 oldest are boys and the youngest is a girl.

I homeschool my kids, all but the oldest.  Yes, I'm a SAHM.  I have a college degree in business and years of a variety of work experiences.  I don't regret staying home, though...not at all.

Most of you know I follow the paleo/primal diet and lifestyle.  It's not hard to do, I feel great, and I have no plans to go back to the SAD.
