A little faith and a lot of love go a long way…

Welcome to the Chaos

Can you hear that? It’s the sky opening and a chorus of angels singing…you, my friends, are witnessing a miracle. Not only am I starting a blog, I am going to make it public so I have people who hold me accountable for actually writing. Disclaimer:  There’s no official reason that anyone should hold me accountable….no reason that I HAVE to blog other than it’s therapeutic and I enjoy it. Oh yeah, and I’m hoping it will make me famous. Just kidding. Sort of.

So if you happen to have stumbled across my blog by accident, let me introduce myself.  I am a Christian, Mommy, Wife, Teacher, Friend, Daughter, Sister, Aunt, and I could go on. However, I should elaborate on a few things…

1.)  Yes, I am a Christian. No, I don’t want to shove it down your throat. No, I am not better than you. I happen to mess up quite a bit. Daily in fact. Usually first thing in the morning and then continually throughout the day.  I swear like a sailor…I can be a real jerk sometimes too. Thankfully Jesus loves me anyway and each day I try to be better than the last.

2.)  I. Love. Being. A. Mommy. (and Wife). I have a 2 1/2 year old son, affectionately known around our house as The Gorilla.  I also have a little diva daughter known as Binxy. She is 10 months old and my little mini-me. We use nicknames in our house and for everyone we know. Now that I think about it, I’m not sure I even remember my kids’ real names…or my husband’s. I will check on that. 😉 EDIT:  Big Daddy Byron was heartbroken after I shared this entry with him and I didn’t mention him. So, in case anyone wasn’t already aware, I have the best, most HILARIOUS husband in the world. Sorry ladies, it’s the truth. 😉

3.)  Teaching is tough. Way more complex than people who aren’t teachers (or who love a teacher) understand. It’s NOT glorified babysitting and it irritates me when people don’t get what I do or make broad generalizations about all teachers based on a few bad ones. I take a LOT of pride in what I do and the kids I am honored to work with. I’m not perfect by any means. I am human and I make mistakes but NO ONE can accuse me of not giving it my all and trying my best each and every day.

I’ll stop there. No sense in drawing this out. If you keep reading, I’m sure you’ll get to know me even better along the way and all about how I pray, teach, and love.

Me and the fam!
