Hey there! Welcome to my blog that will have you laughing at my attempt to juggle life :) This blog will not only share my experiences but I will also share recipes, interesting tidbits from my classes, craft tutorials, activities for kids, and so much more!
First- here is a little bit about myself…
I am a mother of 3 beautiful, smart, and crazy kids. My oldest son, MJ is 4 years old. He is the smartest and most kind-hearted child that I have ever met in my life. Next is my only daughter, Kaydence who is 2 years old (almost 3!) and truly believes that she is a princess. She is strong-willed, independent and already knows she will be a “Big Star!” Finally is my youngest son, Jacob. At only 9 months old his smile is infectious and he is the happiest baby in the world. I am married to a wonderful man who has brought out the best in me and I am incredibly thankful for him and the family that we have created together.
In addition to running my household, I am also a full-time student at the Florida Institute of Technology. I am currently in the process of obtaining my bachelors degree in Psychology with a minor in Child Advocacy. Please don’t make the mistake of assuming that because I attend on-line college that I am somehow taking a short-cut to my degree– the workload of the classes are equivalent to an “on campus” experience. I definitely have my hands full with work and my brain exploding with new-found knowledge.
As if being a full-time mother, wife, and student weren’t enough I am also self-employed as a shop owner on ETSY. Doing crafts provides a creative outlet for me and also allows me to bring additional income into our home (which never hurts with 3 growing children!) When adjusting to life as a stay at home mom I initially believed that I would have endless amounts of time on my hands to run my shop but I have quickly learned that is not the case. During the Christmas season I found myself staying up until 4am working on orders, waking up at 7am with an infant and using every spare moment (that my children allowed) working on constructing my customers holiday orders… all of this was in addition to my school work, studying, and exams.
I hope at this point that you understand just how busy I am and the truth is… I have only scratched the surface. I look forward to sharing my journey and my hectic, hilarious, AMAZING life with you! My hope is that someone out there gets a good laugh and maybe even finds the inspiration to take on just ONE more task ;)
