I love your blog!!!!!!!!!!!! 8 years ago I had my first and 16 months later my second! SO I guess I follow in this "Baby Bunching" senerio. My BFF has FOUR kids...all just about 18 months apart. While we were in our babydom - we wrote a book together to scavenger every tip we could find because she broke her leg in TWO places and tore her ACL...all in one awful day...and I had a breast cancer scare and surgery. Mind you, we had all these little kids running around and we needed help! Our book is a tip book, fast and easy to read for the needy mom of bunches! Good luck to you on you book journey - it's one that I truly loved, but now that I'm on to a new season of motherhood, my persuits are now focused on the long term creative energy that was bottled up for so long raising my 'twins'! BTW, I am a twin and my mother says it's easier to have twins...who knows!
Great blog and I'll post you up on www.familyzip.com! :)

Why don't you all wrap up a Mother's helper and send her over to me in BFE? :-) My closest neighbor is three miles away, and he's a weird old guy. No older kids around here! Bummer!

That sounds awesome but I have no idea where to find one. I have a babysitter one day a week for four hours but I can't even leave the house unless one of the kids is sleeping since she's not capable of managing both kids. And she's 19 and making WAY too much.

i got my first taste of a mothers helper about 3 weeks ago... OMG!! it was so nice to be able to do the dishes or lock myself in the bedroom to fold the laundry... or run to my post office box (only a 2 mile trip) without getting the girls into their winter wear and all that.
my particular helper was a 15yo girl in the community. i felt comfortable enough to leave her with my little ladies for short periods of time, but it was good just to be able to do some things around the house. especially the packing i have been doing for about 3 weeks... i would be even further away from getting it all done if i hadn't found her.
on finding a helper, just ask around. parents you know may not have children of the right age, but they might know someone who does. ask the older parent's in your area. if you live in a small community like i do, ask everyone. someone is bound to have a middle school aged child who might be looking for some extra christmas money.
