Here we go!

2 Dec

I’m trying something new and starting a blog.  My husband and family must be tired of hearing me ask “what should I call it?” and “where should I start?” so I’m taking the plunge and jumping right in. I’ve been encouraged by a new mom friend to try this outlet, and I’m excited for the adventure.

I’ll start by introducing myself.  I grew up in Texas and then Pennsylvania with my wonderful mom, dad, and 2 sisters. I went to Penn State and then began my post-college life as a teacher.  I married my husband in 2009, and then our beautiful daughter A came along in June of 2011.  I currently stay home with her and couldn’t ask for a better life.  I feel I have taken on a new job as her mother and teacher, and I take the position pretty seriously. Well, not too seriously.  Its hard to be too uptight when some days consist of repeating “Please don’t put that in the toilet” over and over again.  It is filled with new challenges every day but I have to be honest, I am so in love with it.  When I can find a free minute, I am trying to keep up with old and new hobbies.  I enjoy cooking and baking, crafting, sewing, reading, and am trying to get better at photography.

I want to use this blog to record all of the ups and downs of my life as a mother.  My hope is to connect and share with family and friends. Ideally I can share what I’ve learned about being a parent and learn new things along the way.  Every day feels like an adventure over here and I’d love for you to join us!

    I know what you mean 🙂 I feel like “No, don’t eat that.” “The toilet is not for babies” and “Don’t touch it–its hot!!” are the new backbones of my vocabulary.

      We also use “no don’t eat that” quite a bit over here. Who knew mulch was such a delicacy?

    Blogging has become such a fun hobby and outlet for me over the last year and a half. It’s great to have a record of all of my thoughts and memories to look back on. I already love reading your blog and can’t wait to read more!
