November is here and so is my first post for the NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month). This is the beginning of a new kind of blog for me. It will still be about my wonderful family, but now with more "stuff. I am going to say right now that I am by NO MEANS an expert on anything, except MY kids. I know my kids and I know what works for THEM. That is what I blog about. For those of you who know me you understand the meaning of the title. For those who don't, here is a brief synopsis of what I am all about.
I am a mom of 2 kids: Delaney who is 2 and Brody who is almost 7 months. I am a step-mom of a teenage girl and an eleven year old boy. And a wife to a wonderful, handy man. Before getting married I was an organized, controlling, neat freak who planned EVERYTHING! I do NONE of that now. I am trying to get that back- a little- with some new twists. I quit my job as a kindergarten teacher to stay home with our daughter. I knew that I wanted at least one more kid one day; it turned out to be a little sooner than expected. I got pregnant with our son when our daughter was just 10 months old. SURPRISE!! Turns out it was a wonderful surprise. So here I am... married with 2 (ok 4) kids and no job, no schedule, nothing "normal". I have been wearing my pajamas all day and letting the house go.
This blog is a journal of my "new normal". It is about my family and my new life lessons. I am learning to budget, have schedules, diet, exercise, etc., all of which I used to do (maybe not so much with the exercise).
So here we go.......
