Oh my gosh, my first blog! I’ve thought and thought and thought for days about what to write and then I realized, I should just introduce myself and give you a feel for what I’m all about and what I’ll be writing about down the road.
I’m Nikki. 27 year old mother of two, Kylee (8) and Logan (1.5). Wife to Jeron.
My family is my life, I’m a stay at home mom with a plan to eventually go back to school for a degree. I’m very blessed to be able to stay home, my husband is a wonderful man/father who is very devoted to his family. Making it on one income wasn’t always in our plan.
I don’t identify with any specific parenting style, but I lean towards attachment. I’m an advocate for breastfeeding and I’m very much anti crying it out. I believe babies and big kids need lots of hugs, cuddles, and reassurance. I don’t want to grow old and wish I had held my kids more. I want them to know I’m here for them whenever they need me, no matter what.
I live in the kitchen, but I’m no chef. I love cooking and baking and feeding my family delicious, homemade food. I’m teaching my kids to cook NOW because I know far too many adults who can’t cook and it baffles me.
We live in the upper peninsula of the great state of Michigan, 4 hours away from our closest relative. We don’t get a lot of visitors so it’s brought us closer together as a family. It’s also shown us who our true friends are, which was a hard pill to swallow. Time and distance are definite game changers.
We live in a fairly rural area so I’ve gotten pretty fantastic at online shopping. I’m a lover of sales, outlet malls, and even yard sales.
Books! With my youngest still needing lots of attention, I haven’t read much lately. I hope to get back to it very soon though and I plan on sharing!
I plan to “blog” (that’s such a weird word for me to use still??) about parenting, marriage, cooking (maybe I’ll even share some recipes?), friendship, mom stuff, woman stuff, and probably a bunch of random things. I promise not to blog about politics or religion. While I have my own opinions and my own faith, I never want to seem as though I’m forcing anything on anyone. I also promise to be less scatterbrained in future posts. 🙂
That’s a little about me, please feel free to ask questions! I’d love it if you would introduce yourself in the comments!
