Keeping your home clean can be an exhausting task, especially if you have to squeeze it in between the chaos and work and keeping your family in line. And if your life feels like it’s nothing but cleaning and tedious chores, perhaps it’s…
The weather is getting hotter and hotter, and if you haven’t done it already, you are probably getting ready to open your pool and start the swimming season. Having a pool in your backyard is wonderful, but it requires quite some effort before you…
No one is denying children aren’t the gift that keep on giving. But, as a parent, there are just some tasks in day to day adult life that shouldn’t be accompanied by kids. Namely the weekly food shop. Opening yourself up to a world of whining, potential tantrums and…
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm not really a fan of trying to sum up my life in a few sentences. It usually makes me look pretty lame and boring... and ends with me making up a lot of things that I don't actually do... but here goes :)
The basics: I have been married for 2 years to my college sweetheart (who I actually knew in high school), and we have a 9 month old baby boy named Niall. My husband and I share the same values, which I think is really important, but we are very different in most other aspects. I think we compliment each other well, but we butt heads sometimes about what we want to do with our spare time.
I am also a big dreamer. I get really (overly) excited about a new idea, career path or invention almost every day. I also have a lot of semi-passions, none of which I have the time or money for at this point. They include dancing, yoga, wakeboarding, art, traveling and (drum roll please)... board games. Yes, I know, big loser. If I could find a group of people who would play Catch Phrase or Scrabble with me every Friday night, I'd be one happy lady.
Anyway, 2 things that I do have time and love for are playing with Niall and writing, which brings us all here! Enjoy :)
What is your blogging philosophy?
I try to take the exciting things that I'm going through in mommyhood and put my unique and sarcastic spin on it. Even though these experiences are new to me, every mom has probably gone through something similar, so I have to tell it from a different perspective. I also try to make fun of my inexperience as a first time mom.
I have been blogging since...

Welcome to MBC, Kerry. I joined your blog. I loved the video of Niall's first temper tantrum. I laughed so hard at your own reaction to his first tantrum. It brought back great memories. I remember long ago telling my Mom that she never taught me how to be a parent. I went and bought a book about discipline. I quickly learned that patience and understanding and smiling a lot is what discipline is all about at Niall's age. He's smart though. Just explain why he cannot touch the dvd player -- he will get it eventually. He probably understands more than we know. Have fun with that sweet boy! I would give anything to go back and do it all over again.
