I'm the proud, but exhausted, mom of three great kids. After having three babies in just three years, I spent my first few years as a mom just trying to survive!
I'm not a "Martha Mom" whose well-behaved kids gather in a neat &
tidy house to complete amazingly beautiful, detailed crafts. My kids
have gone to school with their shoes on the wrong feet & shorts on
backwards. They've spent way too much time in front of the TV or on the
Wii and seem to be constantly bickering, pinching & whining. There
are always dishes in the sink & piles of folded clothes to put away.
I lose my patience with them way more than I ever thought I would and
sometimes sneak off with my laptop to get a little Facebook break.
I do realize, though, that my kids are growing up way too fast. I
truly treasure those times when we come together and really enjoy each
others' company. I like to do projects that are fun & enjoyable but
not expensive or overly time consuming. We like to go on outings &
trips that are entertaining, memorable and worth any travel time or
admission fees. If it was a hit with me and my crew, maybe you'll come
together to enjoy it too.
