Mommy-ing

Parenting is a never-ending series of choices, and we all make the best ones we can along the way. I don't claim to know all the answers, but I share what I learn in hopes that it will encourage someone else out there!

I choose to stay home with my sons, and I highly recommend it to anyone who can make it work. No judgement here, though - I know it's not the best option for everyone. Jonny works hard at his business so that I can be mom full time.

And heaven knows its a full time job! Here are some of the aspects of that job that you'll find me musing about:

  • Mommy-ing is my general term for all those day-to-day choices, events, and other bits and pieces that just come with little guys. This is in-the-trenches kind of stuff. 
  • There are some products that I LOVE around my house, and you'll find that I have a weakness for kitchen gadgets!
  • I use meal planning to try to keep my family healthy on a budget, making many things from scratch. I also share some of my favorite recipes from time-to-time.
  • I'm not a very strict scheduler, but I do rely a lot on routines to keep our days running smoothly.
  • We use cloth diapers as a financial decision - though all the health and environmental benefits are a nice bonus! 
  • I've been known to dabble in DIY, decorating, and various other improvements to our little home, as well as some organizing projects.
  • Our faith is integral to who we are, and I love volunteering in middle school ministry.
  • We also have a heart for adoption and hope to expand our family that way in the future. 
  • We love to travel, and believe in bringing our little guys along for the ride!

If there are any other questions you have or something you would like to hear about, you can always email me! I'm happy to share what we've learned, where we are, and how we do life right now.
