"Veteran Mom" Blogger Here!
« on: Jul 17, 2014 @ 09:52 AM »
I'm a veteran Mom and have done the "trifecta" and then some: worked full-time; worked part-time; stayed at home with my 3 very different kids and have even done working, completing a master's degree and parenting all at the same time. My husband travels extensively and so I've often done the "solo parenting" thing as well. My blog is dedicated to becoming the best version of yourself with a little humor and spirituality thrown in for good measure.

I started writing as a Facebook Notes writer (mainly to vent!) back in the "dark ages", but am now happily blogging at my own site and working on books. The Facebook fans are the reason for the blog and I am happy to be mentor to my kids' generation. So much so that many call me Momma A and I refer to them as "the adopteds."

If that wasn't enough, I have had 4 heart attacks despite having no risk factors for heart disease (the first 2 came when my youngest was 4 years old and I was 39.). I am also a chronic migraine sufferer and go into anaphylaxis (I just made you look up that word, didn't I?) whenever I breathe air (or so it would seem).

I adore it when Moms ask me for tips and advice, so dear Mommies, flood me with your thoughts, what inspires you and questions! I'm all ears and happy to help any way I can.

Karen,

Sorry to hear about the migraines--they are such a thief of writing time! What helps yours?

Thanks, Karen, for the advice about my signature. I confess that some of this site is confusing me, but hopefully, my response here will show I'm slowly learning!

If not and if I broke a lounge rule, please let me know. It's probably a "rookie" mistake and not intentional.

Thanks for following, Samantha! I've had a few challenges along the motherhood journey. Basically, if I sneeze now, my entire family holds their breath to make sure I'm still alive afterwards.  ::)
