My Life as a Mom

Feel free to contact me:

With 6 happy kids, life can be really fun around here! This blog is dedicated to the joys and sometimes chaos of having a large family. Okay, so it's always chaos around here, but fortunately, it's almost always fun, too!

One of my children is a very early riser. He wakes up soon after I do - as early as 5 am or so.

It's nice, when the rest of the family sleeps, and he and I spend some quality time together.Yesterday morning I showed him how to microwave a potato - then he made potatoes for breakfast for everyone after they woke up.

Okay, so it's not a traditional American breakfast, but it surely beats sugar-laden breakfast cereal!

We like to do something special in the morning - we drink herbal tea together, or I help him color a page in his coloring book. It doesn't have to be anything big or difficult, but something that gives him a little extra time with me. It means a lot to both of us.

When you have a lot of kids, I think it's important to find special moments wherever you can.
