    Just wanted to say good luck to you! I also have 4 kids (8, 6, 4, and 3), and know how tough it is to juggle them and school, too. How are you managing it?!

    Hey DanaRN2b, I also have 4 kids the exact same ages and I am also 27 yrs old! I am about to start my last semester of nursing school so it can be done. My husband is in the military and has been deployed twice since I've been in school, as a matter of fact he is gone now. He left the day after Thanksgiving and won't be back until Feb. If I can do it, you can too! Best of luck to you.

    DANARN2B-You asked how I managed with 4 kids...and school. I have been taking half my classes online and half on campus. 3 of my kids are in school all day so the only cruncher is the weekends...they can get a bit tense. Often times we are all sitting around the table doing our homework together, that is actually a plus...it's good for them to see a parent working on schoolwork too. Good Luck to you!
