The most underappreciated job is that of a stay at home parent. There are no awards given. They are not honored by groups in the newspaper as the person of the year. To me and to their children they are the real heroes.View Thread
My name is Joni, I was a single mom until my son was 8 and then I got married and with my hubby came two step daughters. Now the kids are 11, 9, and 7 and I will be quitting my job to stay home with them this summer. We figured that summer daycare / latchkey for the three of them would cost almost as much as I make, and its just not worth it, so I am going to be a hands on stay at home mommy! looking for other women who stay home for support, ideas, and tips!View Thread
I joined a MOPS (Mother of Preschools) group back in September and I enjoy it. What I don't like about it is that the group only meets during the school year and not in to summer. I understand why they don't but I still need a break during then too. I guess I'll need to find a moms group that meets during the summer.View Thread
