Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I am a 29-year-old stay at home Mom of 5 happy little mess makers. I have been married to my loving, overly messy, socially awkward husband Shawn for 8 years. I feel like I've spent the majority of those 8 years pregnant or nursing. Being a stay at home Mom wasn't what I planned to be, once upon a time I had great big dreams and can sometimes become depressed- usually around my birthday- that I haven't seen those dreams come to fruition. I love my children and husband very much but from time to time wonder how I ended up here... covered in whatever bodily functions were pointed in my direction. My blog is a mixture of emotions as my feelings change from day to day on almost every subject... it chronicles the ups and downs of mommy-hood...the days I pull my hair out and cry to the days I laugh and swear I have the cutest kids in the world. I post occasionally about books and movies, I am a fiction dork and find fictional worlds paramount to my sanity while raising 5 children! I love to write and recently started a book I hope to have finished by my 30th birthday next August...
