I’m a mother of two young boys. We are a family that moves often for work so every new posting is a challenge that brings forth our love for each other and our strength in one another. I love to write, cook and travel…in that order 🙂
Now that the post-perfect part of the speech is over, here’s the real us: a workaholic, introvert-in-an-extravert-job husband; a harried, extravert-but-stay-home wife; a 6-going-on-13-moody boy, V; and an undergoing-constant-growth-spurt 3yo boy, R. Maybe I should have called ours the hyphenated family. Hmm.
We’re leading a busy albeit decidedly unglam life, currently in the suburbs of Washington D.C. My youngest is finally in half-day preschool which gives me precious minutes to take a bathroom break, alone!, whenever I need to, as long as it’s in the morning. After almost 7 years of constant washroom company, I’ll take it! There are of course bigger family issues to resolve than the aforementioned as the kids get older, hence this blog. Hopefully, writing here will provide me an opportunity to document, vent, laugh off and look back on these fleeting moments that seem insurmountable right now but will inevitably fade from active memory over time.
Also? I hope, for my sake, to review every book that I read from now on on these pages, in case I ever have the need to make intelligent conversation in public. No more, “hey, I know I’ve read this one but what was the story, again?” Yeah!
