Something for me
Let me start by saying I've always wanted to be a mom. As far back as I can remember I would mother small animals and dolls the way many young children but I also had many younger cousins and nieces and nephews that gave me plenty of time to sharpen those skills. Funny thing, none of that mattered when I had kids I realized I know nothing (and my older kids will tell you that.) This blog is my gift to me. It is a place where I can share my daily experiences and struggles. So lets talk about me, something I rarely do. I am the youngest child of a worrying woman and an indecisive father. My mother had one other son who was 18 when I was born. My father on the other hand had 7 other children. The youngest was about 9 when I born and lets just say none of them where happy to have a new little sister. Because they lived with their mother we had little interaction until I was a teenager and they were adults. So basically I was an only child with 8 siblings. I knew one thing; I wanted a big family which promts this blog. I never knew having that big family would be so rewarding and crazy at the same time.
