I am a mom to a 5 year old son and 3 year old daughter.

I feel eternally grateful to have been pregnant and to be a mother. 
I appreciate my fellow mom friends who get what it's like to be spit up on, to experience a blow out poop up the back of a baby's neck, being up all night, worrying about sending a child to preschool for the first time, and pumping for a whole year. 

I love writing and sharing stories. 
I adore my friends and the fact that they are joining my Mommyhood Club. 
I strive to be as honest as possible about my experience as a mom, so as to encourage other moms to not be afraid to do the same. 

I LOVE featuring real moms' stories on my blog.

I am a full-time middle school counselor, a wannabe photographer on the side, and a wife to a hard working high school sweetheart husband. 

I love to walk and run. It's my dose of sanity. 
I strive to be organized but not perfect.

I'm obsessed with Pinterest, especially to find ideas for my kids' upcoming birthday parties.

My favorite quote is "Be the change you wish to see in the world" by Gandhi. 

I started this blog as a gift to two pregnant friends, Heather and Jess, in May 2011 and then created its Facebook discussion group in the fall 2011... and it's grown into a passion of writing and sharing ideas. 

I love being a mom!
