Normal Ask a busy mother of five, FIVE! boys...

Hello all. Yes, I have birth five, FIVE! wonderful boys of ages: 18, 12, 11, 3 and 2.



And yes, I do consider myself a Wonder Mom!

Any questions?

Given the age range, what led to you desire for kids 4 & 5?

My first three children are from a previous marriage that lasted 11 years. After marrying my current husband we decided that we both wanted to have children so that helps explain the huge age difference between kiddos' three and four.

We all do our share of housework - all seven of us. Everyone is expected to clean after themselves. Including picking up their dinnerware after a meal (even at McDonald's!). Even the toddlers put away their toys before creating chaos somewhere else - this is often a family affair.

I (gulp!) admit that I am a Blue Crack Addict. I've confessed to my husband during dinner one late night - there were tears in my eyes and he was very understanding. Also, my poor kids have had to suffer "take-out" due to my negligence. Oh, and not to mention those disgusting soggy diapers that (oops!) are now more soggy than they should be.

I was never trying for a girl. I know what havoc that brings - I mean, I'm a girl and I wouldn't have wished me on anyone. My poor parents went thru hell raising me. I guess I'm not ready to pay my dues. LOL!

Last month Danny enlisted in the Army Reserve and plans on going on Active Duty after bootcamp. Currently he's cadet captain in his high school's JROTC program and has been with the Police Explorers since 2002.

My hubby is very supportive of this. We each get our time away from home every now and then while the other stays home to care for the young ones. Sadly, we don't "date" each other much and that's putting a little stress on our relationship. But, it's something we'll overcome.

My hubby takes care of the kiddos while I get to sleep late on the weekends. Sometimes I don't get up until after 1:00 p.m. This is great therapy! It also helps that I have a loving and nurturing mate - he's awesome!!!

Here's more background for ya':

I work part-time during the day and I'm home by 3:30 p.m. so that I'm here when my older kids get home from school. My husband works 2nd shift and I only get to see him for about 15 minutes before he starts his workshift. We do it all ourselves - no babysitters or daycare for this family. Oh, and our income tax return is mighty gernerous.
