So here are the 7 things about me:
1)I am a stay at home mom to my two kiddos, Brendan and Lillian. Lilli will be one the day after Christmas and Brendan will be three, three weeks later. By the grace of God and my very supportive husband, Eric, I am able to stay home and spend these very fleeting first years with them.
2)My sister is 13 years younger than me…and our weddings were two years apart.
4)I worked in social service for 8 years, mainly with pregnant and parenting teens in the custody of the state. 6 of those years I was Executive Director of two different group homes. If I knew then what I know now about being a mommy…I would have done things MUCH differently.
5)I reaaalllly liked the color black when I was in high school…and at one point shaved the lower half of my hair. I really thought it was cool. *sheepish grin*
6)When I had Brendan I suffered from a DVT after emergency c-section…an infection in the incision…then a secondary infection which turned out to be MRSA. I was on IV antibiotics daily for nearly two months and PUMPED AND DUMPED in order to keep my milk supply so I could continue breastfeeding my son. I suffered through 5 bouts of mastitis, one on my wedding day, until I finally gave up on breastfeeding him at 8 months. I have been breastfeeding Lilli for 10.5 months with 2 very small run-ins with mastitis…and we are going strong!!
There you have it. Since I’ve been on Twitter I have found so many interesting new blogs…so I’m going to send some of the Tags their way…as a way of me getting to know them as well as broadening the circle of bloggy love. You can link to their blogs and, if they have them, their Twitter handle.
If you have been tagged before, feel free to ignore…if you haven’t…please play along!
