I have been a stay at home mom for the last 4 years and I love it. my oldest is going o be 5 this year and my youngest is going to be 2 in July, With times being so hard right now its so hard to be a stay at home mom. I need to get a job we need that extra little bit. Also even if time were not hard I feel like I need something to do other then the everyday thing around the house. I need a career I am 25 and I feel like What am I going to be doing in 10 20 years? My kids will be grown up in 20 years and I dont want to be stuck at home with no employment history or education to get into the working world. but its so hard to even get into school or a career with two kids at home and no way to pay for childcare. do you ever feel like you want to do more but are stuck in a rut?

when i was a stay at home mom, i sold avon (for 10 years) and i started just after my first daughter was born. it is easy to get into and you can work as hard as you want. avon has everything and you can get some great deals. where else can you get under arm anti persperant for 99 cents?

I have thought about Avon but I have no car or license at the moment my boyfriend has a car but he works second shift so it is hard to get anywhere really when I need to for something like that. I am glad it worked out for you, my aunt did that for about 10 years and she loved it. maybe someday soon that will be an option for me to!! thank you.

I realize your "free time" with two kids and a house is minimal,but I hope you will use the computer and internet to continue with your education.The feeling of being left behind in this ever-changing world is real and can happen so fast.It sounds like you have some idea as to what you want to accomplish with your life and the internet can help you reach that while still doing the full-time job of being a mother.I wish you good success in the future(luck has little to do with it) and keep your eyes on the prize.
