This is my blog to catch my musings about making it work. The title – Lamaze isn’t just for childbirth – has been my mantra as a mom for a long time. I often find myself breathing deeply (or needing to), due to the antics of my 4 girls. I’ve been very sparingly blogging now for a bit, and in 2021, I’ve committed to writing at least 15 blogs this year. One per month, plus the girls’ birthday blogs.
I’m a full time working mom with a spouse who works in the schools. When I married him, I got a stepdaughter that is old enough she’s not a focus of this blog. The next round, “Peanut”, came 11 months after our wedding. She’s about to start High School. Round 3 came 3.5 years later in the form of our “Bug”. The final round (and I mean final) came in the form our “Bits”, and she is definitely a great last addition! Her nickname has changed overtime, and she’s now Jiggs.
My goal for this blog is two-fold. One – to capture our family life so the girls have somewhere to look as reminders of our family life and two – spit out my words of wisdom (or not) for the girls, as sometimes, you just can’t tell kids things!
