Welcome to our life! We are a family of four with two littles (and one on the way) living on a dime in 900 square feet. On a daily basis, we are doing everything from freezer cooking to college courses, from ASD therapies to dance parties, from temper tantrums to tickle torture, and we are going to share it all with you.
Hi! I'm Kelly, the mom behind the blog. After many years of education, I graduated with a Master's degree in Teaching, and quickly decided I wanted nothing more than to love and raise my children and tend to a home. I spend my "me time" reading and writing as much as possible as well as checking my Instagram and losing myself in Pinterest. I also enjoy cooking, singing (badly!) with my kids, picking up new hobbies, and taking long walks in nature with my whole family. On the flip side, I hate cleaning, bringing in the groceries, and doing the dishes.
Damian is the wearer of many hats in our family. On top of being an amazing father, a rock solid husband, and working 40+ hours a week, he is also taking a full course load of college classes online through our local community college with the goal of becoming a computer programmer. He loves what he is learning, but it would be a lie to say it isn't stressful! After he graduates in the Spring of 2017 with his Associate degree, the real fun will begin as he starts classes on campus at a state university. (And isn't he handsome?)
Drake is an incredible little boy of 2 and a half years with ample energy, mood swings, and laughter. He loves trains, cars, swimming, being tickled, and in general being a big goof. He is a gentle, intelligent kid with a good heart that he wears on his sleeve. In addition to all of this wonderfulness, Drake has Autism Spectrum Disorder. He daily teaches his parents that they do not have this parenting thing down after all.
Devin, the soon to be middle child at just a year old, is a rough and tumble boy built for football and crushing rocks with his bare hands. He took his first steps at 8 months and has not looked back! Despite his physical nature, he is a little snuggle bug, loves reading books, and looks up to his big brother in all things.
Baby on the Way!
This is baby number three! So far, this baby does not like pizza and is prone to nausea.
