Been married to my hubby for almost 21 years...we have two bio sons 18 and 13 as well we are foster parents to several teenage boys. My hubby is a really patient guy. He works with all the boys teaching them about cars, plumbing, electrician stuff, regular fix-it guy stuff plus and more importantly he shows the boys how to treat women and children. He works hard everyday and is one of the most decent and honorable men I know! I love him now more than ever! Best place ever together was Puerto Vallarta Mexico

Well, I guess I'm the oldest mom here - I'm 57, 58 in August. I raised 8 wonderful children, ages 34, 32, 29, 28, 24, 22, 20, & 19! I am remarried for nearly 12 years to the most wonderful husband! We live in Conyers, Georgia and have 14 grandchildren, and my most favorite place I've ever been was Niagara Falls. One thing I would say to you young moms - I know it seems so hard sometimes right now while your children are young, and sometimes you feel like you can't get anything else done except care for them. Well, I would tell you this - dust and laundry will always be there! Your child (ren) are only this age ONE TIME! Please! - take time to PLAY! Get down on the floor, tickle & hug & kiss & laugh til you hurt! Color a picture, sing a song, make up a funny story that has no end & keep adding to it all the time! Enjoy this time - it will be over SO FAST! I would give ANYTHING for just one more day with my babies when they were still young! Make memories they'll never forget - cuz that's really all they want-is YOU! This time is hard, but it's also precious. Enjoy it while you can! And then when they're all grown & out of the home - you might have a little bit of quiet time, but then there's GRANDCHILDREN!! So I'm playing & singing & tickling & giggling again! And I pray it never stops! Laundry - I'll get to you tomorrow! Sorry for the long post - it's my heart!

Hi there, my name's Carlye. Just joined today. I'm 22... I think.. I was born in 93 yeah 22. Ahhh... What can I say, the past 2 years of my life have flown by. I have to do the math to remember how old I am. But anyway I have been with my man for we'll say 3 years. We have 2 beeeeautiful children. Our kids are 1 year and seven days apart. They are almost 2 and almost 1 year. Sorry i dont say 16 months. Its like once they turn a year, there 1 then 2 then 3. Haha. I got pregnant when I was 19 and pretty much stayed pregnant for 2 yrs. That part was horrible! I hated being pregnant. But my man and I met, got to know each other, messed around for 7 months or so, got pregnant, had a baby, got pregnant again, bought a new car, bought a house, had another baby, and here we are. It litteraly happened that fast. Oh did I mention we have 5 American bulldogs ;) so here we are, my man's the only one working. Commutes 2 hrs. A day. We get at 4 every morning almost, watch the sunrise and drink coffee. I'm a stay at home mom. Thinking about becoming a teacher. I keep saying my man but to explain we haven't had the time nor the money to go up to the Court House. But to each other we're married we have rings. I don't need the government to take $102.00 out of my kids mouth for a piece of paper at moment. When we get to it we get to it. But I'm the most happiest woman In the world. Living In the boondocks on 5 acers. Money's tight right now and has been for a long time it seems like. We all have our problems. But we're madly in love with sweet sweet babies that make us smile every day.... Paradise. I joined BC I don't really have any adults to talk to during the day. So why not circle of mom's.

Hey There!
I am Norma from Ontario, Canada. I have been married for 10 years - together for 13 though. I have one son from previous relationship. My two men are the beats in my heart. Oh we all have days when we would rather be living on a beach somewhere but I have a great life. I work full time as an Admin Assistant and also have my own business for the "treats" in life. My husband is retired (yup early!) and our son works in Transit. We have one spoiled little dog - another male in the house.lol.
As for me I love to read, do crafts, bake, cook (my happy place is in the kitchen), gardening, hosting parties for my business, having friends and family over, Pinterest, etc. My hubby came into my life and I just love him to bits. He supports every crazy idea I come up with but is always there and has my back. He is a big teddy bear and I love my guys!! We love to travel and our favourite spot so far was Italy! My next big dream trip is to go to Scotland and Ireland!!

Cheers!

Carrie, I don't knew if there is anything that says we can't say where we live I just didn't. There is a lot of rural area in PA but I live in LaJose and you probably have no idea where that is so I will tell you the closest bigger cities are Altoona and Indiana both about 40 miles away. Chana

Hi My name is Carrie M. I've been w/ my current and Wonderful hubby over 4 yrs and we celebrate our 3rd wedding anni on St. Pattys day. Hubby is 100% Irish and I have much Irish in myself as well :) I stay at home and recieve my daughter split custody w/ my ex husband. We both see her throughout the week and we split the weekends. My current husband is a Sr. Network Engineer and works on salary alot of hrs. He's always on mtgs and conferences via his cell or on his pc. I've learned to not let this bother me.

My husband is terribly old fashioned valued, of which I love. He opens doors for me, pulls out seats in resturaunts of me, make sure I don't want any 2nd's before he takes 2nd's at at home meals, we own a one car garage and I park in it even though there are days I go nowhere, he maintains my car, even up to the fact of putting gas in it for me (I hate the congestion of gas stations), he does our budget and shares everything w/ me (all information and I have an equal share in what goes where and in all of our investments) Everything is considered "ours" and he won't even get a stick shift , simply b/c I have no wanting to drive one...

We love life, are working on our health atm though. He is quite overweight and has diabetes, asthma, anxiety, and a few others. I'm bipolar and have more of the mental spectrum, yet also, anemia.

Hi, my name is Chana and I live in rural PA. I just turned 45 and have been married to my wonderful husband for 5 1/2 years and we have 2 little girls ages 4 and 2. So why do I think my husband is wonderful. We went to school together many years ago and were friends, graduated lost contact even though we only lived about 10 miles apart we never so each other. He got married I didn't. We ran into each other in 2007 he was in the process of a divorce and wouldn't call me until it was final. When he called that October we went out and have been together since. We got married in Sept 2009 and I lost my mom in Nov of that year. He was my saving grace because I could not have made it through everything that went with that without him. He knew I wanted to be a mom and we accomplished that twice even in our early 40's. He has allowed me to be a stay at home mom even though I have a degree in Child Development and was a Preschool Teacher for many years. He is great with the girls and he always seems to know when I need a little me time. My favorite place to be is any place with my family.

Hi Everyone,

My name is Sarah, and I am currently living in Pittsburgh Pa with my husband Adrian and daughter Sophia (5 months). I am originally from Pittsburgh where as my husband is from North Carolina. We rescued our dog Jimmy from North Carolina...which you could say he was our first baby.
Adrian and I have almost been married for a year, we actually found out I was pregnant on New Years Day 2014! It was a wonderful surprise. Adrian is a chef and was in the military for 4 years, I got a degree from Le Cordon Bleu...in pastry.
I am currently not working, but taking care of our daugher...which is a full-time job! but I love every second of it. And I love her even more. Adrian and I would love to either open a small restaurant...or bed n' breakfast someday!
When I get some free time to myself, I love to watch Youtube..take photos...write...yoga...see my friends...spend time with the hubby...travel...and blog. I have an obsession with butterflies.....the colors turquoise...pink...and champagne...and I am terrified of the dark. I absolutely love Drew Barrymore and I think Pioneer Woman is a pretty awesome!!

I hope to hear from some others!!!!

Hi Wendi. I too really like Oklahoma. I lived near Tulsa for several years, as a child. My husband has never been and I really want to take him and share it with him. It's like place he's ever been. Then he can take me island hopping in the Caribbean, as he's done that and I've not. ;-)

Hi I'm Rene
cape town south africa and I've been married to my man for 14 years and in total we have been together 18 years. We dated for 4 years before taking the big step.
we have 1 daughter aged 7
and one adopted daughter aged 22 :)
We adopted our first because doctors said we couldnt have children and after trying everything, decided to adopt.
Then many years later - one night I couldnt sleep on my stomach and when my GP sent me to my Gyn - I was already 6 months pregnant. yes that was a shock.
He's an amazing man who has stood by me through everything and continues to love me regardless.
We've been through much but we are still above all else - best friends and a strong team :)

Hello I'm Ann. I recently became a member to the site and was encouraged by so many positive words from woman with similar issues and concerns. We all need affirmations and good sound advice from time to time. I'm a true believer
in caring, sharing, and honesty.

I've been married to my Wonderful hubby for 26 years. We have an adopted daughter that's 24 years old. We live in Texas. We also love spending time with a few friends sometimes on the weekend however we do enjoy our family times with the three of us when time permits our daughter to join in on our fun. But when she is busy with her friends and work, we enjoy each other.~-~

Nice meeting you Ladies.

I kind of want to say the favourite place I've been to is a hospital just outside of L.A., USA where I met both my husband and Anja, but that's awfully cheesy, so I'm going to go with Luxor, Egypt and Amsterdam, Netherlands.
