I know this is long over due, but seeing that we are now fast approaching the 30,000 mark (and proud of it), I would like to say......\r\n\r\nHi and welcome. :D\r\n\r\nMy name is Jeanette and I\'ll be your, crazy due to lack of sleep, admin for as long as I am a member of Circle of Moms. I am a mother of 3, all under the age of 7.\r\nEverything is a new and strange adventure when it comes to you and your child entering a new stage in their life. It can be hard and sometimes overwhelming, especially when dealing with more than one child. It is wonderful to have so many willing to help one another and I am elated to see the board so active.\r\n\r\nTo anyone new at this, please feel free to start a new thread and post a response to others. This community is all about our new adventures and our past experiences of raising children ages four and up. \r\n\r\nI only ask that everyone be kind, caring, respectful and helpful to all. I hope everyone enjoys this community as much as I do. Have fun and meet new people. I’m looking forward to chatting with everyone.\r\n\r\n\r\nJean

Hi! I have 3 girls also and they are all under the age of 7. I look at it as at least they are close in age and they are growing up with each other. I also wanted mine all at once instead of gapped.

Hi to all the mom's!!! I am a mother of 3, eldest is 8 and twins that are 6. All boys and i love them to bits. But my twins have been acting really strange and naughty, lying, stealing, swearing and it only seems to be happening at the their father's and his new partner. I don't know how to approach i have tried talking to them but they do not seem to be changing, the behavior is still happening and their father is blaming me. My new partner and i get on really well with the children and have a close relationship and i dont know how to get them not to be so bad at their father's. Does any of you have any idea's?? We have tried counseling for the children..

Hi all!! I'm a newby to the site. I am a single (seperated) mom of 3 wonderful kiddos, ages 11, 7, and 5. I am a busy lady on top of my 48 hour a week job (yikes) All of my kids (two boys and a girl) have lots of activities that they participate in. I love to read, play video games, and I couldn't live with out music.



I am looking forward to getting to know you all! =)

Hi I have two boys one 5 adn one 2yrs, the 5yr old has just started school and seems to really like being there, the 2yr old seems to want to go to school too so it is a bit awkward trying to say to him he has to wait till he is older. I hope to be able to join this group and just chat about school and to find other mums with ideas to share with.

Hi all. I have two sets of twins...girls 9 boys 5, needless to say there is not a dull moment in my life. I also work outside the home, currently at Michaels craft store but looking for more. I'd like to meet some people out here in the Yakima Wa area. I just moved here from the Chicago area, and love it here compared to Chi town.

Thanks for the welcome. I know what you are going through. My kids are now 10, 9, and 7. 18 months between the first two and almost 2 years between 2nd and 3rd. When mine were almost 4, 2.5, and 5 months my husband was deployed for two years. During that time I worked full-time as a middle school teacher and lived over 8 hours away from the closest realative. He is gone again now. But, this time I was smarter. We live only an hour away from family and I stay at home. The extra time and activities with my children is worth giving up the extra income. I wish I could stay home until they graduate.

I have 2 boys 9&5 and I've had to deal with bulling with my oldest child and tring to explain to him why someone would want to treat him so cruel. My 5 yr. old has now started to wet the bed again.I tried water restiction,but he loves water so much he sneaks in the bathroom at night and drinks from the sink.

Hi I am a mother of two. My olders is 6 years old and have just started first grade. I am trying to help him understand his homework such as math. When I try to explain something to him, he says that he is listening to me. But when I tell him to do what I just told him, he forgets instantly. Is there an easy way to help your child study for math, science, social studies, etc without both him or I getting frustrated?

Thank you for the warm welcome!
My Daughter is 22 and made me a grandmother in Feb, my son just turned 4 in October so i guess I made this group just under the wire! I know, you are saying to yourself 22 and 4? wow, is she ever a jerry springer epi if I ever saw it! And you'd probable be right! He was a very big surprise to my now ex husband and myself. But he's my shining star! He and my daughter helped me thru my divorce this year. I don't think if it weren't for them I wouldn't have made it thru! They truly are my angles!
Anyway, thanks again for the welcome! I'll really be needing help with raising a 4 year old on my own, so be looking for the threads!

Thank you for the welcome. I joined because my neice sent the invite and thought maybe I could find some help with my kids on here. They range in ages from 21,20,8 & 6. Yes I know that is a big difference. The 2 oldest are my step-son. The 20 yr old I adopted when he moved in with us. It is somewhat hard to raise one from the age of 10 to starting with little newborns. But hopefully I can find some help.

Thanks for the welcome!! I have 3 children 10,7 and 18 months. I was layed off my job a little over a year ago and now I am a stay at home mom, again. This is my first time on here and I am glad I found it. I need all the advise I can get. My kids start school tomorrow and the drama is going to begin. He said she said, she called me fat, he called me ugly!!! Oh god this was an everyday thing last year, does anyone else have the drama like this, or is it just me??

I think this is a great site, just found it yesterday, through an invite. I have an 11 year old son, who just started Middle School, I also have about 250 other kids ages 5-18 for appx 6 hours a day. I am a school bus driver, and I love my job. I have never recommended any kind of "parenting books" before, but I would like all the mom's out there to check out this book I picked up this weekend at the library. It's called Raising a responsible child, by Elizabeth M Ellis. It is not a new book.. I'm not trying to advertise for anyone, but if you read the 1st chapter your hooked. anyway, I'm excited to get hooked up with all these mom!!!

Thanx Jeanette, I'm sure I'll enjoy it to be a member of Circle of Moms. Good luck with your 3 all under the age of 7!!! You must be special, 'coz I don't know if I would be able to handle that!! Have a nice week!! Regards - Edna Nagel

thanks, i think you are a strong woman to have 3 kids under age 7. i have 3 aged 10, 6 and 4 and they drive me nuts. But the fact that they all go to school has helped me greatly because i dont have to worry about them much during school days. Holidays are both enjoyable and stressful especially when i cant get time off to be with them. I encourage myself tho' by the fact that they are growing up. Thanks again for this I look forward to learning more
