If you seek answers to this question from only parenting forums or even family, the answers and feedback you receive will leave you more confused than you were before you asked the question. But the truth is that choosing between a nanny and a daycare doesn’t have to be that confusing. All you need is an understanding…
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I was raised just outside of Washington DC, graduated from The University of North Carolina and moved to Georgia. Because of this stage of events, my culture shock was minimized. I remember walking into stores and wondering why the salespeople were talking to me. Turns out, that's just what they do in the south.
I married a true southern gentleman who I met on a camping trip at Cumberland Island. We have three young children with another on the way. My life is NOTHING like I expected it to be, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I intended on being a corporate VP and ended up a stay-at-home mom which I love more than I thought possible.
These days you can find me cooking in the kitchen with my kids, homeschooling at the kitchen table, scrapbooking or out back tending the chickens. We have an even dozen hens in our coop. Course being from DC, I never expected to have poultry in the backyard - maybe a garden or even a fruit tree - but not chickens. I have been converted. So much so, that I sing the praises of having chickens. I love the "Girls", they give us fresh eggs and entertainment as they prance around.
My life has truly been blessed by God, and in the most unexpected ways. What I share on this blog are things my family has enjoyed and I'm hoping yours will too. Feel free to email me about anything at all.
I'm fairly new to MBC and reaching out to moms here. I am a part-time family doctor and full-time mom of 4 boys. I have a parenting website. On the site I accept questions from parents about their kids' behavior and offer suggestions about difficult situations. I hope you will check it out, perhaps leave a question or recommend it to a friend who has a problem.
Many, many years ago when Sears had their little county stores, (They still have one in this little town) I bought two dozen Guinea chicks. Years later, when I moved from that place, there were over a 1,000 and they were everywhere. We couldn't keep them at home. they used to roost on the electric wires all up and down the farm road. Fortunately, a man came by who loved Guinea and bought them all for 50 cents a piece and he would catch them. Wow, what luck.
I am a retired teacher and I home schooled my youngest totally all the way to college and when she graduated from college she was number one in her class. That was sort of fun, because many of my teaching friends did not like the fact that I home schooled. Now many of those teachers are buying my books for their own children and grand children. Life is fun and has a lot of quick turns,
My home projects include a lot of woodworking, I have pictures on several sites and at the moment, I am making a coffee table.
My biggest effort is going to figure a way to keep the squirrels and deer out of my apple orchard. That will be my project for next spring.
I was just checking out your profile. It is my dream to have chickens one day. I'm so jealous! I do have two chicks, but they are of the human variety. You should check out my blog: http://thelittlehenhouse.com. I look forward to reading more from you. :)
