I'm a 40 something Mom with two little boys who keep me crazy busy.  I love being a parent and since it took so long to become one, I know just how very lucky we are.  My boys have allergies so that creates some challenges for us but we work with it. 

I live in the suburbs and even though I have a crazy insane 2 hour commute - each way - it's worth living where we do.  We can afford a house here, with big yard, a little school and an amazing community.  It doesn't get much better than this.

About my kids: 
My boys are 4 & 6 and busy busy busy. They keep me on my toes, that's for sure. Always climbing, jumping, bouncing and running - we do get the occasional quiet time for reading and Lego. Both of them have the evil trifecta of allergies, asthma and eczema and we've had to learn to live with that while letting them be regular kids. Easy for them, but this Mama has some silent and well hidden fears whenever they are out of site.
Parenting is...: 
confusing. Everyone has an idea of what we should be doing. It's hard to figure out the right things and we make mistakes, no doubt. In the end I think parenting is all about finding out what works for you and your family and being secure in your choices because you know your kids best.
We know you don't have a lot, but when you do, what do you like to do in your spare time?: 
Sleep. really - sleep is NOT over-rated. But when not sleeping, I like read, write, and get in a little DIY especially upcycling things into something new and fresh. And I might be a bit obsessed with decluttering.. and shopping.
When are you at your yummiest?: 
I'd say go back to when I was 25, but since I can't time travel - Today I'm at my yummiest when I'm feeling great about what I'm doing. Getting excited over something just adds a glow that isn't always there. That's when I'm feeling yummy - and probably looking it, too.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what would be the title?: 
27 directions at once
What's currently in your purse?: 
stuff... lots of it..hmmm... a wallet, glasses, a silver kangaroo, a plastic dinosaur, headphones, receipts, lipstick, another set of headphones, epi-pen, business cards, bus passes, a bill, and some sand.
What superhero power would you like to have?: 
supervision - so I could always know what the boys were up to. They think I have it, but you know, it'd be cool if it was real
If we gave you an elephant, where would you hide it?: 
In my glove compartment. - if you can put a dozen elephants in a VW bug, I'm sure one would fit in the glove compartment of a minivan
