15. Thanks for the 2nd Link...
seems there is more....she had day care (at least at one time) and started going to school again..

Not a stay-at-home mom

Christine recently decided to go back to school three days a week this fall. She originally had planned to wait until January but said some time alone would do her good. More important, she said, finishing her schooling will help put the family in a better position.
"I want them to go to the next echelon," she said. "I went to nursing school, I want them to go to medical school."

She has found a home day care in north St. Louis County to look after her six children from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday this fall. It will cost about $2,000 each month.

Christine has two years of classwork to complete, although she realizes there could be delays. "Give me another three years - maybe more."

Still, she said, she thinks of her self-worth in terms of what she gives back to the community. That's why she also plans to complete midwifery training through a school in Kentucky.

The long-term goal is to open a clinic in the Central West End. Christine said she's seen too many mothers "just showing up at the hospital, having babies."

People who know Christine said she can handle both kids and career.
"She's up for the challenge," Bonds said.

Well maybe she wasn't up for the challenge after all. I like the way she didn't want exploit the children but it was okay dokey with her if someone wanted to build an addition to thier house.

Now, the question of the hour. Who thinks this is the first time super-mom left those babies in God's hands while she ran an errand?
