My Life as a Mom

Feel free to contact me:

With 6 happy kids, life can be really fun around here! This blog is dedicated to the joys and sometimes chaos of having a large family. Okay, so it's always chaos around here, but fortunately, it's almost always fun, too!

With a lot of kids, I think it really helps to buy things at the end of the season. For instance, we just picked up some pool toys for $1 each. I'll just save them until next summer. Christmas wrapping paper is always great to get on January 2nd (after the store has time to mark everything down!)

We just got some great pool toys for not very much money. And some of them are actually good bathtub toys, so that was a bonus.

I have used the Scientology Handbook many, many times in parenting.

The section on Children is just fabulous!

I especially like the essay by L. Ron Hubbard called, How to Live With Children.

Other good essays are:

Working with a Child's Willingness
Allowing Children to Work

Other useful sections in that book, for parents, is:

Study Trouble
Illness and Injuries
