Hi! I’m Angee, and welcome to my blog!!
Out of all the endeavors I have embarked on, motherhood is by far the most rewarding! When I was asked as a child what I wanted to be when I grew up, I always responded, “A mom!” And now, I’m living that dream, even though it’s a lot harder than I ever imagined. I was fortunate enough to get a degree in Early Childhood Education and had the incredible opportunity to teach school for 6 years. I fell in love with the children I worked with and learned so much! Now, I get to be a stay-at-home mom and apply the many things I learned to my own children. I love making and creating memories for my children. And I love teaching them and learning from them.
Here is just a little bit about me because I totally know you’re curious! *wink* I’m petite, spunky, and full of energy (my nickname growing up was the “Energizer Bunny”). I grew up as an Air Force brat and enjoyed my childhood traveling all over the country, visiting many of the sites. My favorite city is Washington DC. I love naps! My favorite color is yellow; it just screams happiness to me. Would you be surprised to learn that my favorite flower is a sunflower (also yellow)?! I also like the color pink and anything sparkly. Oh, and skirts. And shoes. I enjoy curling up with a good book and a big bowl of ice cream! Speaking of ice cream, I like to eat it with a fork. I love being outside and can’t get enough of the mountains… or the ocean, although I don’t live near that. My life isn’t perfect, but it’s so good. And I feel so blessed!
Now on to the serious stuff: My purpose for this blog is to help other women find joy in their children–whether that’s as a mother, an aunt, a neighbor, a teacher, or whatever role you may play. I want to provide a resource of activities to do with your children to make lasting memories, for that is what motherhood is all about! Like many young mothers, I don’t have a lot of cash-flow so you’ll find my ideas budget-friendly, simple, and yet fun!
I hope you enjoy! Feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts and own ideas.
Here’s what to expect:**
Monday: Arts and Crafts (self-explanatory)
Tuesday: Fun in the Kitchen (either cooking/baking with your children, or doing a craft with items in the kitchen, or sharing hints for getting your children involved in the kitchen)
Wednesday: Dramatic or Active Play (make-believe ideas or outdoor games)
Thursday: Educational Fun (learning games, reading with your children, etc.)
Friday: Modge Podge (whatever I feel inspired to share)
**2012: I have had to veer away from this slightly since I’ve been having some health problems the last little while. You will still find many great ideas; they are just not organized as well. I hope to return to this format in the future!
