WELCOME! I hope you enjoy sharing in the joy, frustrations and huge learning curve that I am experiencing as a mother. Through the 9 years of being a mom, I have appreciated those who not only listened, but also have helped by offering encouraging words and ideas. Because of past help I have recieved, I decided to pass on ideas at least once a week and hopefully get some more from YOU! If you know of other parents who would appreciate this-please share it with them. Let's enjoy the journey.
