I can’t blog! I have three kids, a full time job and a house that unfortunately, doesn’t clean itself. I just don’t have the time. The energy. The fancy graphics. But yet, here I sit, at the desk that I put together all by myself at 9 months pregnant (because I could, dammit!) to blog. I can’t help myself. Because with every day that goes by are new ideas that could have been shared. New questions that could have been answered. And new stories that could have entertained you. And that, my friends, is the power of social media. So together, maybe we can learn and share a little about ourselves. Laugh at and with each other along the way and – and get through this thing called parenting. Together. Unscathed….Just maybe.
A few Ground rules:
Typos are a sign of authenticity
Comments are welcome as long you can play nice in the sandbox
All give-always will likely be from my basement in the form of hand-me-downs
Attention diaper marketers: I am your target audience
Okay, so here’s a little about myself. I’m a full time working mother of three. My kids are Jacob; age 5, Addison; age 4 and Matthew; age 5 months. I am an Account Manager at a PR firm and while I don’t have a white picket fence around my house I do live in the suburbs. You’ll hear more about my kids in the stories I share, as they are my muse, but mostly I want to focus on the lessons I’m learning, the little ups and downs that we all face everyday and the shortcuts we take (good bad or otherwise) to make it to the weekend each week. I do not own any jeans with elastic in the waste nor will I ever but the term ‘sensible shoes’ is finally starting to make a whole lot of sense to me, much to the concern of my husband, Chris.
