Holy smokes girls!! I was gone all weekend...now I'm so far behind!! Ok, I'll try to answer some questions.<br><br>
How did you come up with your screenname? <b>It is my childhood nickname. My mom always called me AmBam!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"></b><br><br>
- Tell us something out of the ordinary about yourself <b>Ummm...There's so many weird things about me....I got married the first time when I was 15!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"></b><br><br>
- What is one thing you are loving about your 3rd trimester body? <b>I'm suppose to be loving something about my 3rd trimester body??<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> I'm actually just trying to cope. I started this preggy heavier than I've ever been and I've never seen the scale read the number it reads right now, so actually I'm just trying to ignore it and worry about losing the weight when the baby is born. Sad and pathetic I know...that's just how it is this time!</b><br><br>
What is your favorite food of all time? <b>During pregnany? Hmmm...I don't think I have a all time favorite...I love sweets...that's my downfall. This preggy I have been craving fresh fruits...MMMMM!!</b><br><br>
Where are you planning to give birth? <b>At home for the 3rd time!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Unless I'm dying I'd have a hard time stepping foot in a hospital again!</b><br><br>
What do you look forward to the most about having a new baby? <b>I love the smell of a baby fresh from the womb...oh and nursing and cuddling and all of the newborn stuff. It's my favorite stage and I wish it lasted longer!! Oh yeah...And finally being able to lose some weight!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"></b><br><br>
What is your favorite movie? <b>I really don't watch much TV...so I don't really have one...</b><br><br>
What sort of music are you interested in? <b>I like a little of everything...But I'm a country girl, so I listen to a lot of country!</b><br><br>
How many children do you eventually want to have? <b>Hmmm...not sure...We've always wanted a "large" family, but I'm not sure what the number is. I do know that I don't feel like this is the last one, so we'll see.</b><br><br>
What's to the left of you? () <b>Ummmm....A big huge mess of papers on my desk!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"></b><br><br>
What's your favorite jello flavor? <b>Ewww that doesn't even sound good right now...If I had to choose it would be strawberry!</b><br><br>
Ok, I'll be back for more in a minute. I've got to catch up on some other threads and feed my kiddos some lunch!!

What would you do with an afternoon all on your own? A day? A week? <b>An afternoon...catch up on cleaning...A day...Have a nice long bath ALONE, and some computer time or read a book...A WEEK???

Ok...here's a few more before I leave...<br><br>
What are your kids like? <b>Oh fun...ds #1, He just turned 10...He is the most amazing child. I got preggy with him when I was 15, his dad and I married, but then divorced before he was 2, he's been through my drug and alcohol addiction and terrible parenting stages with me...and thru it all he has amazed me. He very easy to get along with, he makes friends sooo easily, he's nice to EVERYONE and sticks up for the picked on kids. He truely makes me so proud. He's been thrown around sooo much. I homeschooled him for K and first grade, his dad didn't like that so for 2nd he switched to public, 3rd he decided to go live with his dad so he moved to a new school, 4th grade his dad moved again so again he went to a new school, now at the end of his 4th grade year his dad has moved again and he has switched schools again. He's never complained, in fact, says he likes moving and likes meeting new people. He does make friends easily and exells academically. He loves football, riding horses, camping, reading, etc.<br><br>
DS #2, who just turned 4 in March is my little firecracker. He made me realize what it's like to be a mom. He knows what all my buttons are and LOVES to push them!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> He's very independent, strong willed and stubborn. I can't imagine where he must get it...My dh said that the only person he's met that is more stubborn than himself is ME!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> DS is a great big brother to his little sister and is very exited to meet this new baby. We've also started a little HS and he is picking things up very quickly and loves learning. He LOVES LOVES horses more than anything in the world. I will post some pictures sometime of him riding all by himself as a 3 and 4 year old. He's amazing. He can tell you some of the best hunting/fishing stories you've ever heard in your life!!<br><br>
DD is my princess. She just turned 2 in March and is very sweet and cuddly, yet very independent. She likes things her way or no way. I knew she would be that way from the moment I went into labor with her. She loves her big brothers and loves to kiss the baby. She says when the baby comes out she's going to "hode it and tiss it and hug it" Too cute.! She too LOVES horses. She rides with mom or dad on long rides but will ride alone around the barn yard. She loves to be outside and loves anything that includes her daddy. She's very much a daddy's girl.</b><br><br>
Do you have a favorite child (we won't tell! ? <b>I really don't!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I love each of my kids for their different qualities. I have such a connection with my first cuz he was my only for so long and in so many ways kept me alive...My ds#2 is so special to me. I had wanted another for so many years and he is my first with my now dh. #3 is my first girl and just melts my heart in so many ways. I love each of them the same but so different too!</b><br><br>
Do you have a degree? <b>No, I don't. I quit highschool when preggy with #1, but did get my GED. I'm looking to start online classes next year, but don't know if I'll ever go for a degree. I just want some classes to strengthen and learn new skills pertaining to our business'.</b><br><br>
About those horses..<br>
I'm assuming you ride? Roping? What kind of horses are they? Do you breed any? Anything in particular horse related that you really enjoy? <b>We have always had horses because we love riding. We ride in the mountains every weekend all summer. The reason we have so many now is because we run an outfitting camp. My dh has been an avid hunter since the day he was legal to hunt and we had the opportunity to buy the camp 2 years ago we jumped on it. So now we make a living with his hobby/obsession which is wonderful. So from the end of August to the first week in Nov we pretty much live at our camp and take people hunting. Most of our horses are quarter horses, half draft or full draft horses. When the kids are older they will be involved in 4-H and such! Horses have been a part of my life since I was tiny.</b><br><br>
Ok, I have to run. I told my mom I would come help her. I will be back later to answer more. Ask away...it's kindof fun...But now you all can see what a soap opera my life has been!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
