SAHM stay at home mom

Icon...I admit that lately, though, I have been having a bit of an identity crisis. Now that all three of my children are in school full time, the thought of getting a part time job during the day has crossed my mind. I am happy to say that today, I made my decision! More >>

IconWe all hear and do too much complaining about our circumstances and how we MUST compromise our values and the well-being of our families in order to survive.  Truthfully?  That's rarely true, if at all.  But it requires a commitment to a goal and a commitment to family that will not be compromised.  That means another way HAS to be found. I've recently gotten "hot and heavy" into polymer clay work.  I love it. More >>

IconToday's e-mail of the day (Found Dog Reminds Me of Missed Years) made an impact on me! Unfortunately I was driving on a very busy highway and trying not to cry as you were reading. I did make it safely to my destination. More >>

IconThis morning as I was returning from walking my dog at the dog park, I noticed a beautiful black Labrador in the parking lot of the Clubhouse in my community. I stopped to see if there was anybody with the dog. Nobody was around. I pulled in, got out of the car, and the dog ran to me and practically jumped into my arms. I let my own dog out of the car, and the two played. We waited a while in the hopes somebody would come looking for a dog. No one came. I invited the dog into my car, she jumped in, happy as could be. More >>

IconDr Laura, the kids from SAHM homes, benefit in ways not discussed very much. Living on one income means sacrifices for everyone. We lived in a modest home and only had one car. More >>

IconI'm a first time mom. Before becoming a mom I went to school for 8 years and have a master's degree. I worked for 8 years in my profession before having my baby. My husband and I have been very smart with our money and the only debt we have is our mortgage. We decided when our daughter was born I would stay at home with her.  I can't say  I don't miss work, because I do at times, but I would never trade the days I have with my daughter for a job. My sister-in-law has two daughters 3 and under. She shuttles them off to a home day care every day. She told my husband she didn't want to be a stay at home mom because she wants to use her brain every day. More >>

IconToday when you came on the radio, my 2 ' year old yelled, "Mommy, it's Dr. Laura!" As I stared at him in disbelief (that he knew that from your voice), I also began to reflect on what you've done for me and my family and became so sad you are going off the air. (Aside: Dr. Laura is just going off broadcast radio, she'll continue to nag you in other ways.) You have become so much a part of my life, and we have never met! I just really, really hope you know how much good you have done for so many of us out there in radio land who may not get a chance to tell you. More >>

IconI have listened to you for many years and have never called or emailed you before. But after hearing today's "toilet paper" call, I knew that I had to write you. Tomorrow is my 22nd anniversary. For the first 15 years of my marriage, I got bugged about all the "little things" my husband did wrong. One of them was the toilet paper. More >>

IconThe last (soon to be) 12 months have altered me in a way that I never imagined possible. I knew that parenthood would change my lifestyle, yes. I had no idea it would have such a drastic effect on my entire being. My view of myself is altered forever. I could never have believed there would someone in the world more important to me than absolutely anything else. My life revolves around how she's feeling and how I'm doing as a mother. My self image is no longer based on how good a friend I'm being or how popular I am or even what other people think about me. Am I a good mother? Am I doing the best job I can for her? Does she know how fully and completely I love her? My self worth is entirely based on those questions. There is a tiny human being holding all of that in her little hands. More >>
