About the Blog: When I began staying at home in May of 2012 I started posting updates about the kids onto Facebook, and titled them “Diary of a mom.” So many people enjoyed the posts, that I decided to turn it into a full time blog. The main focus of the blog is to share my experiences of being a stay at home mom, and the challenges that arise from trying to raise three children.
About our family:
Michaela: I’m 36 years old and was a full time stay at home mom for 3 years. In the fall of 2015 I went back to work part time at our children’s elementary school. I’m married to my highschool sweetheart, and we’ve spent the last 15 years building a strong relationship as we raise our family together.
Matt: Matt is 39 years old, and works for a local company. He’s a fun loving soul, and enjoys nothing more than spending his weekends at home chilling with the family.
Brendan: Brendan is 12 years old and is started middle school this fall. He has Aspergers which is a form of autism. He is a wonderful and caring child, but struggles with understanding social norms which can cause him problems.
Cameron: Cameron is 7 years old, and in 2nd grade. He has been diagnosed with ADHD. It can make him a handful at times, but ultimately he has a heart of gold.
Kaylee: Kaylee is 5 years old, and started kindergarten this fall. If ever there were a princess, she would be it. She lives under the delusion that the world does and should revolve around her. She’s got a streak of independence that I previously thought impossible in someone her size.
