When I was little I told my mom when I grew up I wanted to be a teacher, a singer, an artist, an author & a mom. My mom asked how I was going to do all that & I told her "Well, I'm going to be a mom & a mom IS all those things!"
Now I know how true that was! I am currently an elementary teacher turned stay at home mom. I'm singing, drawing, making up stories & teaching my kids every moment I get & loving nearly every minute of it! (See how honest I was to add "nearly"? lol)
My husband, Ernie, and I met when we were both counselors at a Kid's Camp. We have been married for 13 years this summer. It's unbelievable how fast time flies!
Ernie had a stroke for unexplained reasons at the age of 33 when our son was only 3 months old. He is permanently disabled because of the effects of the stroke -- comprehension, memory, impulsivity, insomnia & mood management issues as well as random balance issues & seizures (which took a year to get under control with medication).
Despite all the daily struggles my husband & I continue to love one another, love our kids & love God.
Desiree(6) is in grade one and loves singing, drawing, climbing trees and pretending. Elijah (4) loves doing the same things -- especially with his big sister. Desiree is sensitive and crafty. Elijah is mischievous and cuddly. Life with them is always interesting!
I love all things childish (watching animated movies, browsing in the toy section, etc). I like reading (kid and adult books) and love crafting in random moments of free time (knitting, crocheting, paper crafts...). I especially love making memories with my family. On this blog I post about a bit of everything -- the fun childish things, the simple things and every so often (I hope) something profound.
