1) HOW DO YOU EARN EXTRA MONEY FOR YOUR FAMILY?
Well, I don't bring in an income because I am a SAHM but I try to stretch the money that does come in as best as I can and in any way that I can. Its amazing how far money can go with a bit of discipline, creativity and knowing your needs vs. wants.
2) WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PARENTING TIP?
Oh I have a bunch. But I guess my biggest tip is also my biggest pet peeve... don't try and be a cool parent or a hip parent or your kids best friend. Be a PARENT!!! Embrace the fact that your not 18, don't live vicariously thru your child and don't try and recapture your "lost" childhood thu your poor offspring. Just embrace the new role God has given you and parent!!!! Your kids will thank you for it when they get older!
3) ANY GREAT HOUSECLEANING TIPS?
Um well from my previous post, no. LOL. but I have learned that implementing a schedule always works with anything you try to do. Whether it be cleaning, homeschooling, planning or taking care of toddlers. Schedule and delegate. Many hands make light work.
4) HOW MANY KIDS IS THE PERFECT AMOUNT FOR YOU?
Ha ha. Funny you should ask. Im pregnant with #6 and hubby and I said this is our last! Even though we often look at each other and try to figure out what the big deal is... having 6 kids REALLY IS NOT THAT MANY!!! Seriously. 5 is a piece of cake and we can't understand why people make such a stink. We may say we are a "large family" but truthfully we don't feel like one... now 8 or 9 kids... THATS alot.
The other night I turned to my hubby and asked him if this really was our last one.... could #7 really be in our future??
.... and for the record... those large family haters can spare me the negative comments. Trust me, you DON'T want to go there.....
5) IF YOU COULD TAKE YOUR FAMILY ANYWHERE WHERE WOULD IT BE?
I would love to pack up an RV and travel around the US. Strategically planning out historical events and seeing all this great country has to offer. Im assuming hubby will come and all expenses paid??? And hubby has unlimited vaca days??? Sounds good to me =)
Well, thats it. Those are the 5 questions. Now hop over to THE CHATTY MOMMY and link up with her. I would LOVE to hear what you all have to say as well
Have a great holiday weekend with your family
