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! But for new moms here are some tips for giving your baby a bath.
