I’m Poe, wife to The Man and Mama to Munchkin and Punkin. The Man is a submarine veteran who separated from the Navy about a year and half ago. He’s loving civilian life…and I am too! Munchkin is 20 months old and is into everything. Her favorite thing to do right now is to go “wee!” She LOVES slides and swings and going to the playground makes her day. Punkin is still baking and is pretty small, as I’m still in the first trimester (8/9 weeks.) I ended up in the ER with sharp, stabby abdominal pain. The upside is that I got peace of mind that it wasn’t my appendix and by seeing Punkin and the heart beating at 6w2d. Seeing the heartbeat NEVER gets old. I can’t wait to hear it too! I love being a Mama. We’re slightly crunchy around here, meaning we sometimes cloth diaper (for the first year then ammonia got the best of me), babywear, breastfeed (still going strong!) and bed share. We do these things because they work for us. One of the most important things I think we can do as parents is to figure out works for you and your family and do that. Don’t worry about other people are doing, don’t make them feel guilty for doing it differently than you, just do what works for you. It’s hard enough to be a parent without extra, unnecessary guilt!
I write about all sorts of things here. Our life basically. I share recipes I’m making, what Munchkin is up too, parenthood, and pregnancy posts will be making appearances again, among other things. I host a bi-weekly link up called Flashback Friday. It’s for your favorite old posts sitting in your archive. You link them up and get more traffic, comments and love on them. It’s live right now (through 4/11) and I would love it if you’d link up with us (yes, that’s a shameless plug!) I’m active on Twitter, my favorite social media platform. Pinterest is my second favorite. I’m also on Facebook and Google+, though not as often. I’d love to connect with you so please let me know in the comments how I can do that!
There are thousands of blogs on the party lists and it means so much to me that you stopped by. I hope you have a great time at the party!
I’m linking up with 5 Minutes for Mom and their Ultimate Blog Party 2014
