The Diaper Diaries

but hopefully not full of crap

About June 4, 2007

mom1.jpg   I am a stay at home mom to 2 beautiful girls. Lily is 4 1/2 and Hannah is 1 1/2. I’ve been married 6 fabulous years to a wonderful husband and father who graciously puts up with the amount of time I spend on the computer. In exchange, I put up with his fanatical love of hockey which is the longest sports season on the planet.

I live in West Michigan down the street from my parents and close to my in-laws. Am I crazy? No, I love it and always have free babysitters dying for time with their grandchildren.

I love a good book, a great song and a excellent glass of wine. I also confess I watch too much TV and spend way too much time on the internet.

I love being home with my kids and wouldn’t have it any other way, but I am paying off an awful lot of grad school loans for this privilege. Also my life often feels like “Groundhog Day.”

Mostly, I am just trying to be a good mom, wife, daughter and friend, all of which I do with varied success. Finally and most importantly I am trying to figure out how to do all this in a way that honors God and is worthy of the calling he has for me.

    Just discovered your blog through babycheapskate. I have 3 (4, 2, and 9 months) and I too am trying to raise my kids in a way that would honor God. I loved your piece about how your daughter wanted to pray for the people that you almost got into a fender bender with- that is awesome!! Can’t wait to dive into your archives.

    advertising inquiry: http://thediaperdiaries.wordpress.com/

    Hello,

    I’ve recently looked over your site and believe that your reader-base and visitors might be a possible advertising venue for us.

    I am interested in traditional link advertising as well as using link “blurbs” on certain pages of your site, or on certain articles – perhaps even submitting articles. This includes but is not limited to purchasing a post also. We are open to any idea that would allow us to capture interested readers, but would prefer to avoid the traditional “Ads by Google” and “Sponsored Links” sections.

    Please let me know if you’d be open to discussing advertising possibilities further.

    Thanks in advance,
    Travis

    Saw your reply on http://www.rightforgrandrapids.com, and thought you would like to know that Gov. Huckabee will be in Grand Rapids at Schuler Books (28th St) on Dec. 3 from 7:30 – 8:30pm as a stop on his national book tour for Do The Right Thing.
    PS: Thanks for making me giggle everytime I read your blog – it’s great!
