I’m the only girl in my family. I have no older sisters to turn to for great advice and wisdom so I turned to mom-friends and a wonderful mother for a lot of the ideas I post here. I have no little sisters to give advice to, but I’ve always been a teacher at heart and I want to share everything I’m experiencing as a new mom. So I created this blog.
A little about me:
Husband (SimpleGuy) and I were married seven years ago in Salt Lake City, Utah.
We lived our newlywed years in Orange County, California where we were spoiled by fantastic weather. (Californians are spoiled because they can’t handle extreme weather.)
I’m an English teacher who never got to work in the traditional classroom due to the budget cuts and hiring freezes. Instead I worked 4-5 part-time jobs teaching Mandarin Chinese at a community Chinese school and Montessori after-school program, working as an online teaching assistant (I got to grade papers in my pjs) and online standardized-test-essay scorer. This allowed me to support my husband through optometry school.
We moved to the DFW metroplex, giving up the SoCal weather and glamour, but getting a much better quality of life in many ways. (2012)
D (Baby or Baby #1) joined our family. (2013)
We’re living the dream; who knows what adventures will unfold next!
How ’bout twins (Q or Baby A and D2 or Baby B)? 😉 (2016)
How ’bout raising our kids bilingual and homeschooling? (2017)
This should be good.
