My Life To-Do List
Currently on my Life Wish List:
~ Get a PsyD before I turn 35.
~ Open my own non-profit program for adolescent girls.
~ Buy a house with at least 5 acres of land with my husband
~ Write a chick lit book
~ Write a non fiction book about sexual abuse and motherhood
Goals I am working on:
~ Working on my Bachelor's in Psychology, and will graduate in May 2009.
~ Organizing information about graduate schools, so I can apply next year.
~ Working on some freelance writing as a way to earn some money, especially since I love writing!
~ Joining a creative writing group to get out of the house, meet other writers, develop my creative side and challenge myself more, intellectually.
Projects I am working on:
~ Trying to pursue many different writing assignments at once.
~ Trying to do as much work as possible now, before #2 comes along, so that when it's grad school application time I won't be super-stressed.
~ Working with a 9-month-old underfoot!
I need people's input to help me come to a decision. I have to decide between applying to graduate school this year (and attending Aug 09) or applying next year and attending August 2010. The biggest thing for me is the fact that if I did apply this

SAHM's - Do you plan on returning or starting work when your last child goes off to Elementary School?
Full time? Part time?
Is your husband supportive?
Answered on 17th December 2008:
I'll be going back to work in January. My kids will be 15 months and 3 months old! The original plan was that I'd stay home till they were old enough for preschool, but I find myself going crazy without adult interaction and intellectual stimulation. I'll work for a year, and then we'll move so I can pursue my PsyD. My husband is very, very supportive which makes it so nice! :)
How often does you 18 month old get sick? What do you think is an average for a child in daycare? At home?
Answered on 11th September 2008:
Daycare kids are sick ALL the time. My husband's coworker, who sends his child to a really good daycare, still complains about her being sick about once or twice a month. She is 6 months old. I think when you have so many kids in one space, it's inevitable that they're going to get sick. I used to teach preschool, and the toddlers have the worst hygiene of all. They are at that stage where they're too young to understand why you cannot kiss someone who has a dripping nose, but they're too old for you to constantly supervise them one-on-one like a baby. I like Yvonne's idea of talking to the DCP and seeing how the hygiene is, and what her sick policy is. A lot of DCPs get lax about making people keep their sick kids home, and that's not good. Good luck!
