Hey! So Glad You're Here.

Here is a little more about me...

I am a mother of 6, including twins. As a stay-at-home mom and wife of a contractor, my 'job' is to find ways to make family memories, attempt to keep the house clean and make food my family will actually eat. Often, I remind myself that as much as I’d love to be ‘the perfect mom,’ that mom doesn’t really exist anywhere. But what I can help make happen is a mostly happy home most of the time. For everyone else - and me. 

We have had different seasons of life. At one point in time, we had five kids ages five and younger. It was a necessity to learn quickly faster ways of doing...EVERYTHING, so I could do what was most important to me, spending time with my family. Sometimes as moms, we need to find a faster way so there is time left to take care of ourselves, too! Over the years of fumbling around trying to find what worked for my family and me, I created some really good systems that will save you from the trial-and-error periods I went through.

 

Being a mother for 17+ years has blessed me with knowledge, hilarious stories, and a surprising amount of mistakes to learn from! About a year ago we moved to the country to give our children a different type of life. Now we own 30+ animals, our kids have been in public school but I have also homeschooled so I have learned a lot about things I didn't see happening in my life but I LOVE it. Now I'm going to share it all to help busy moms - to save time, energy, and sanity.

Just remember...just because you are doing something different from those around you doesn't make it wrong!  Well, unless you are breaking the law...haha!
