And a New Journey Began

Well being this is my first post maybe I should let you know a little about me and my family. I have four little loves of my life. Three boys Joey, Jared, and Jace. Aged 9,8, and 6. They are all boy, there good boys but like any other kid the have there moments and keep me on my feet. However they don't keep me on my feet nearly as much as our final addition... Lil' Miss Gianna age 2.  Gia is a typical girly girl girl!!  Dramatic, caring and a bit on the Diva side. She has also picked up the toughness from her brothers. I can't believe all the things this girl can get into in one day. Nor can I believe what angels my boys were compared to this one single lil girl. I wouldn't change it for anything though... Well maybe for a day at the spa ;)
 So on top of taking care of my kids I was working nights for the past 4 yrs as a shift manager. When I left for work my husband was coming home to take over with the kids. About a month ago I realized I missed my family and even if it wasn't for forever I wanted some time at home again. So for the past couple of weeks I have been trying to settle back in as a SAHM. With four kids  financially wise it isn't going to be easy, but I'm hoping it will be worth it.... To them and me.
I was also thinking this would be relaxing for me. I forgot that  being a SAHM is definitely just as much of a full time job as a full time job.
So here I am, trying my hand at this blogging.  I also realized as much as I am loving every minute I am spending with them. I now lack the venting outlet, that "adult convo time..KWIM? So I figured why not share her and hopefully meet other to swap "Oh what a day stories with" along with the Ohhhs and Ahhs....

Welcome to the world of SAHM again. I'm now staying home as well and blogging is such a great respite from the solitude of being a SAHM. I'm now following you from MBC. Come follow me at http://tvstake.blogspot.com Happy Memorial Day!

Visiting from NFF... I understand. Since my daughter was born, I have been SAHM, working mom, SAHM, and now working again (while Daddy is SAHD). I've enjoyed both sides. But I definitely got into blogs while home.

Your first post and it looks great. I have no experience but tried, it didn't come out so hot lol I was also a SAHM of 4, 3 boys, 1 girl. I follow blogs to read and to try at giveaways as it is the only way I can provide any extra's like gifts or something I may want. I know now (since it is 3/14/12) that you kept blogging and are doing fantastic ;)
