I always sleep pretty good I am a heavy sleeper, but always wake up easily when we co-sleep which has been since about 7 years ago If I didn't sleep good, we'd all be in trouble. I can also sleep pretty much anywhere.
Well I also got asked 3 times if I wanted the flu vaccine at my docs offic this past week- and he showed some true colors I never saw when I asked about scheduling a c-section a bit past my due date. Wondering why I picked him at all......too late to change now! At least he is a skilled surgeon should my plan to accidentally homebirth fall through.

I'm 25, but I get comments from people about how teenage mothers should be sitting at home feeling ashamed of themselves- and others look at me and shake their heads sadly, and I'm sure they're thinking the same thing. So I'm at the opposite end of the spectrum.

Or I put down my 19 month old and they see the belly and gasp. Or when I put the baby down I have to tell them I am pregnant and then that starts a conversation... Some people are very happy, other people just give me a look as if to say"breeder!!!!"
Hi all I feel bad, I haven't been around *at all* but life just gets in the way sometimes. We started a homeschool curriculum here(Sonlight) and with my 3 I hardly find time to get on the forums
But I really missed it
We have chickens and all eight have started laying as of this past week. WE have been getting eggs for a while, but the last 4 just started. I love eating fresh eggs! SO much different then even the best storebought. We feed them tons of good food...
