It took having to go back to work with my first, to make me realize I never wanted to work while my kids were young again. SO much happens in their first year or two, blink an eye and you've missed it...been a SAHM ever since!

I love being a SAHM but it does drive me crazy at times though... & its so hard to keep up with a house. When your child needs your full attention...:lol: I need to learn to freeze dinners!!

what i do is you know the throw away baking pans i buy those and make everything ahead of time and then i freeze it for the fast suppers cause i can take them out and just pop them in the oven foil-danish-pan-250-cs.jpg1-1-2-lb-aluminum-foil-loaf-pan-500-cs.jcs.jpg



and i get the rubbermaid lid locks i make all the soups like chilli, chicken noodle(but i don't add the noodles) and then i freeze them if it is something that needs noodles i add them when i'm cooking it 412R6MTAUfL._SL500_SL160_.jpg
