Mom of 2 boys, stepmom to a 3rd. My passion is reading and writting (when I get the opportunity).
Being a mom is more difficult than I ever anticipated. My roles as a mom, step-mom wife, cleaner, taxi-driver, sister, daughter, female, human, etc., all seem to change as fast as my kids change.
One of my parenting goals is to teach my kids to notice and appreciate the small things in nature and in life (the sound rain makes on the roof, snow falling in big flakes with no wind, the sound of cicadas in summer, the texture and smell of paper books). By doing this I hope life will slow down for them (and me)
It's a wild, fleeting ride. Enjoy it while you can!
