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.
