So now that you have had an intro to the players in my life, I think I shall tell about my stumbling into the blogging world. A good friend of mine has a blog as well as a girlfriend of hers. After hearing how I should read their blogs...what can i say.. I found myself in alot of the women who are staying home to take care of their children, home and husbands! With five small children it has been difficult to navigate the playgroup circuit. Since I have had a small baby home for the past three years and throw in a nursing schedule...I have been somewhat shy on the social side. I relish in the daily blogs that I have found and continue to find each day. Since I have given up Starbucks (more on that later) for the time being , this has become the daily fix. I have for so long given up myself that I was becoming miserable and then when I would seek an indulgence just for me I would feel somewhat quilty. It is great to read how others are balancing motherhood. I love my children, now I have to learn to balance some me time too!

New to Blog World

That's right. I am a blogging virgin ready to take the plunge. Here goes....
I am a stay at home mom to five fantastic little ones. Here they are:

This is my big boy. He just finished first grade. He loves all things Star Wars, Spiderman and Ben-10. He desperately wants a brother but after four tries...I think I am done. Sorry SweetBoy!

This is my oldest daughter. She has just finished Kindergarten but hopes to move onto high school very soon. She is a spitfire and has lived up to the stereotype about redheads!

This is my middle child. She is not yet in preschool. She is in a difficult spot.. not yet a "big"kid and not one of the "babies". She is the epitome of sweetness.

This is my fourth daughter. Not yet two and quite a handful, we are very busy with her. She is incredibly funny and always makes us laugh as she learns about the world. She is quite the daredevil and holds her own as the fourth.

And my eight month old babe, who is also sweet and funny. Currently learning to won't be long until she is running with others.


My Mr. Fantastic! I am truly thankful for this man and everything he does for our family. I love him to pieces. posting was not so bad. I hope you don't mind my setting the stage so to speak. I hope to write more about my recovery from motherhood as I reclaim, rediscover and remake myself.

More to come.
