I’m assuming a lot of people reading this already know me.  But in case you don’t here’s the rundown on me.  I am a stay at home mom of 2 daughters.  L is 6 and in first grade and A (or Buggy, as we call her) is 3 (today!).  We currently live outside Orlando but we are originally from CT.  We moved to the Orlando area in February 2009 after my husband, B, accepted a job in his company’s Orlando area office.  Before we moved, I also worked but Florida’s lower cost of living enabled me to stay home…at least for now.

I am also a multiple miscarriage…survivor?  Is that the right word?  I have lost 4 precious babies.  Two were lost in between my girls and two were lost after Buggy.  I always wanted at least 3 children but after my last loss, at 18 week, which resulted in me having to give birth to a stillborn baby in a new state away from family, we decided our family of four would have to do.  It’s a decision my HEAD understood but my heart…not so much.

I love being a mom.  I love my girls more than anything.  But, like any mom, I have days when I just don’t know how to handle everything.  Like most moms, I struggle in different areas.  So, I started this blog…to journal the everyday life of a NORMAL mom.  I still wonder if I’ll find enough to write about but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
