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!

The kids want a swimming pool - or a splash-around-in-and-get-all-wet 3 ft or 4 ft above ground pool, rather...

They are definitely a pain in the neck to mom and dad - lots of cleaning and when we have one, the kids can't play in the backyard unless we're there every moment (even though they are older now, I still worry...)

It's great for keeping cool in the summer, though, and the exercise is wonderful. And they have so much fun!

I think we're going to do it this year despite the extra work.

The kids have been biking almost every day. It's great exercise for them. Even the little ones are getting better - a month ago they didn't know how to ride.

I am thinking about getting a recumbent bike for myself - since I think a regular bike would be too hard on my back. But we have a great bike path near our house, and could spend many fun days enjoying it as a family if I could ride with them!
