  1. Military Families
    My son graduated from Marine boot camp on Dec 2 and is now in NC in training. I never guessed the rollercoaster of emotions I'd go through having my only child join the military. Any other mothers?
  2. Single Moms
    man, its a rough world out there. I've been dating a guy for over a year now and I still don't consider him my boyfriend. I don't have time for a boyfriend BUT on occasion I do like to go out now and then and have a little fun. Trying to find the time to actually go out has been more than...
  3. Family
    I have been mainly a stay at home mom for several years- I have worked earlier this year during tax season (had some issues juggling that). Now this year, on my kids first day of school, I start a new job. Now I will only be working until November 30th (my friends ice cream shop, they begged...

    I know that in order to keep things running smoothly both at work and at home, I need to be super organized. I'm guessing that most of you working moms (who work outside the home) are the same way, as we have just as much to do and not as many hours at home to do it! So, what are some of your...

    Hi all! Sara created this new thread for those of us who are Moms who work outside the home. We have a thread for SAHM's and Moms who work from home, but those of us who work outside the home didn't have a place to go to celebrate, vent, or what have you. So, let's see how many of us there...
  6. General Chat
    Has anyone ever stayed at or visited the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs? Not frugal at all, but honestly one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Today a couple friends and I took a tour of it and browsed the little shops there. The hotel and especially the grounds are TO DIE...
  7. General Chat
    I'm knitting a sweater and pant set for a 6-9 month old, and the directions for the pants simply say to measure elastic to the waist. Problem is, the baby isn't born yet, so I can't ask the mom, and my own "baby" is 15! Can anyone help me with a waist measurement so I can finish my project...
  8. Home and family challenges
    Are any of you interested in joining me for an online preschool "group" of sorts? I so often struggle to purposefully interact with my kids. So during this upcoming school year I am going to try and do a few small activities a day following a theme each week. I am hoping that some of you, as...
  9. Single Moms
    how do you do everything? I got divorced last year and I used to get home by 3pm every day. It worked perfectly. However, I got a new boss in January and with that came new hours. I don't get home until 7pm every night. Its been almost 8 months of trying to balance this and I have finally...

    This is my first week home with a mobile, active baby. (School is now out and he was in daycare at my school since 6 weeks after he was born) B-man has a double ear infection, so he is fussy. And he crawls everywhere and gets into everything! I have to put him in the exersaucer to go to the...
  12. Just Tips
    A new study in the UK has found that obese pregnant women - especially first-time mothers - are at higher risk of eclampsia and premature births compared with women of a healthy weight. The study was carried out by Kings College London, and looked at data from 385 pregnancies. (Results are...
  13. Home Environment
    Hi there, I would like to wish a Happy New Year to all frugal pals. I haven't been here for a while, but did great in December frugal wise. People were happy with my presents, I am on truck with money, bills were paid, saved a bit towards my funds, so now I can get ready for a new frugal year...
  14. Christmas
    I found this today and cracked up. Somedays I feel like all I do is wipe things. Noses, counters, sinks, and dishes. A moms work is never done.
  15. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    I've been on both sides of the fence, but I'm now a SAHM. I love it, my family loves it... heck even the cat loves it. What I'm offended by is people assuming that because I am a SAHM, I 'don't have a job.' Can anyone one relate? Any working moms have a different opinion? What about...
  16. Family
    So, I know there are a few of us who are Moms who work full-time, at a job or career, outside of the home. Our special challenge is that we need to do everything a stay-at-home Mom does, but need to do it after we've already put in a full-days work elsewhere. Time is tight, but the work still...
  17. Education
    My question is this, what are some of the websites or teaching aids you use to teach your child(ren). My ds is going to be 3 in about 2 weeks, he wants to go to school so bad, so I have deceided to homeschool him some preschool material!! I am hoping that if I can get him to a kindergarten...
