Hello! I’m Cindie, the mom/juggler/zookeeper.
I’m a former TV producer from the big city, who fell in love, and somehow ended up in the suburbs ~~ immersed in all things babies! Quite the culture shock for me. Before I had my kids, my career had pretty much defined me. Suddenly I wasn’t that person anymore, I was “Mom”. It took me several years to get used to that. Honestly, I’m still trying to get used to it! As all moms know, it’s the best, yet hardest job ever.
My kids are a little older now – 5 & 8, and I’m a work-from-home mom/freelance writer/social media marketing manager, truly embracing my life with my two amazing children and our zoo. We have three dogs, one cat, two bunnies, and two fish. And we foster stray kittens for a local rescue shelter. So it definitely feels like a zoo! But I wouldn’t have it any other way. We all love our furry family members, and I’m really proud to be raising two little animal lovers.
Blogging and 0n-line communities helped me greatly when I was trying to get pregnant and struggling with infertility. And then when I was a new mom home alone with a baby, and totally freaked out about screwing up… my on-line friends were priceless to me. I turned to them for advice pretty much daily. So that is when the idea of my blog was born. It took a few years to get up and running, but here it is!
I hope I can help other moms too. Or dads. Raising kids is tough, and just feeling like you are not alone in the struggle, is helpful. So I want to share all my moments with you – the funny, sad, amazing, boring, simple, and once in a while, fabulous moments. Sometimes they pass by so quickly, we don’t notice them.
My biggest piece of advice is that wine definitely helps! I hope you enjoy sharing our “moments”. And I hope it helps you to recognize yours.
I’d love to hear your thoughts, stories, opinions and “moments”. So share them with me! I promise to answer back. Leave your comments below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. xo
