I am a stay at home mom of 3 wonderful children, an 11 yr old girl, 16 month old boy and 4 month old girl. My wonderful boyfriend is unfortunately never home because he works 15 hr days to support his family and allow me to stay home and raise our kids. My blog listed above is my daily journeys of motherhood, losing weight and trying to be a wonderful girlfriend. My boyfriend and I are in no hurry to marry. We love each other very much but I have been married before and he has seen his dad thru several failed marriages. We are happy and content just the way things are. We have 2 children together and he has accepted and loved my daughter as if she were his own. Together we are a happy and loving family.
The most precious moments you will share with your children should be right before bed. Morning time families are rushing and bustling around for work and school. During the day families are separated by distance.
Home at last, work, school and activities done, dinner has been enjoyed and homework completed. Your children have had their baths, and are in their warm pajamas. Then comes a special time for your children, a time when “your” undivided attention, love and devotion are theirs alone. A time that they can count on, as a time in their day-(no matter what kind of day they have had,) that is filled with warmth, comfort, and reassurance through the nighttime ritual of cuddling closely with you and a book.

That is very kind of you (But I'm wearing black in that photo for a reason!) I have heard that a quite a bit actually, the part about not realizing how many cals you consume. Thanks for the quick calc., I'm going to start writing stuff down today. I'm curious to see my caloric intake. It may not be pretty. All of my cals are consumed at night, because I'm starving when i get home. My husband and I finished of my daughter's 1 yr birthday cake last night after dinner and i was like, this ain't gonna work! I'm def. taking your advice and giving it a try. I'll check out that web site too.
Wow. Mine are 20 months apart, I cannot imagine! Thanks so much for the compliment on my children. I see you have a curly haired cutie pie yourself! I wanted to move into an apartment with a gym for that reason (and cheaper rent!) but we have a dog now that keeps us from having that flexibility. What website were you referring to? Was it weight watchers? I wanted to do their web program which I think is great, but have cut out all extra expenses to try and get caught up. In the next few months though, I hope to be able to do something like that. Also, my work has a fitness center in an adjacent building and I am going to try and go during lunches. It sounds like you have done really well so far, and you did it the hard way! Congrats!
Hello Leeanne! Thanks for the welcome. We share a similar interest, tattoos, fitness & weight-loss! I am a working Mom but can't afford a gym membership and I'm trying to figure out a routine that includes some kind of exercise so I can get off some of this baby-weight! So, i understand your drive....best of luck to you!
