Hello! Welcome to Live to be Inspired! I hope you’ll grab a drink (my preferred drink choice is always a fountain Diet Coke) and stay awhile!
These about posts are usually where everyone lists their accolades, degrees, places they’ve been featured and everything that deems them qualified to speak on a certain subject.
I don’t have any of those to share (at least none that are relevant). Why? Because I’m a mom! And, like a most moms out there, my hobbies and talents consist of all the usual mom things like trying to open chocolate without making any noise so I don’t have to share, remembering a time when I could go to the bathroom without an audience, moving sleeping children from the car seats to their cribs in ninja stealth mode, and trying to parent out of inspiration versus frustration.
So that’s my qualification. I’m right there in the trenches with you experiencing this crazy thing called motherhood at the same time you are!
I can tell you a little bit about me though so you can see if I’m the type of mom you would click with on the playground and want to talk some more with.
I am a wife to a doctor who works crazy hours and has to travel A LOT for his job. Since there are times we have to be apart for extended periods of time, we decided to have three kids that all look just like him and reminded me of him every minute of the day. Seriously! They all look just like their daddy! I maybe contributed to their pinkie toes! If I didn’t have them myself, I’d wonder if I even contributed. 😉
Speaking of those little’s, we have two sons Titan (7 years old) and Kellen (9 months old) and one daughter, Chayse (2 years old). I am in awe of them every day. Sometimes in an “Awe…I created you and you’re so amazing” way and sometimes in an, “I seriously created you? Did some genes mutate?” kind of way. (And yes, all of their age gaps (or the lack there of) were planned! We’re kind of wild and crazy like that!)
My time is spent homeschooling our seven year old, making sure everyone is fed, changing diapers, working at a snail’s pace toward my degree in Healthcare Administration, changing more diapers, attempting to tackle the mountains of laundry a family of five creates…and that’s about it! (Now you know why I don’t have any fancy qualifications or awards!)
When I do get a spare second, I LOVE to connect with other moms through posts here on the Live to be Inspired blog, on my Instagram account @live2binspired or on the Live to be Inspired Facebook Page. Those places are where I share details about our life and all my thoughts on living a more inspired life, parenting, homeschooling, our vacations, and really anything else related to the home and family! Having an outlet and someplace where I feel like I am actually communicating with other adults helps keep me sane. 🙂
I hope when you visit this site you are able to laugh, breath and walk away knowing you aren’t alone. Us, moms have to stick together!
