About

I’m a stay at home mother of three, living in the worlds of teenagers and toddlers. With a good sense of humor and an M.Ed. in Counseling that I’ve only used on my children, I’m navigating the 10- and 8- year age gap between my two older kids and the “baby.” So, I awkwardly face puberty and potty training, and the toddler knows way more than he should. At least that makes one of us.
