Mind if I join

I'm Brooke, Mom to 6 and a fur baby. Alex 13, Nikki 9, Mallory 7, Jaden 6, Ben 3, Joshua 2, and fur baby Brittany will be 1 January 13. I'm also married. I work a full time job, and go to school full time, so life is extremely busy. I love chocolate and hate brussel sprouts. I'm not sure what else to put here, so hi everyone, and thats all.

Nice to meet you! I went to school full time and worked full time, and I found that it wasn't nearly as busy as having kids. I don't know how you manage to do it and be a mom at the same time! I think it's awesome that you can, though. Lots of people tell me they couldn't manage to do what I do, and I love it.

No, I will not be having anymore kids. I love the kids I have, but the last one almost killed me twice and then my doctor gave me a c section, and because of the cut they had to make on my uterus i will never be able to deliver vaginally again, and c sections suck.

As for the school work mom thing, I have a lot of help. My husband takes care of the kids as much as I do, and we also have a wonderful church family that pitches in to help. I'm very blessed for the people I have in my life, they make it possible for me to do what I do. Really they are how I'm able to do it, I wish I could say I'm super mom but nope lol!

I'm getting my bachelors in Human Services/Social Services. I waited for school until I was certain I didn't want and would willingly prevent more babies. I feel like I made the best choice I could. Most of my kids are in school, and we can do homework at the same time, and celebrate grades, and suffer punishment for bad grades equally. It's actually better than I thought it would be.

Welcome! We are expecting #6. I just graduated from nursing school this past summer. It was probably the hardest thing I have ever done, but it was SO worth it! It can be done! Best of luck Smile
