Ultimate Blog Party 2013 Welcome!

Hey!  If you're reading this, then I assume you found me at the Ultimate Blog Party 2013.  Thanks for visiting!  

(If you don't know what I'm talking about, here's the deal.  Ultimate Blog Party is a really cool idea where a HUGE number of blogs link up together.  We write a little "welcome to my blog" post and then we just jump around and visit each other.  I really enjoy it, because I get to find all kinds of new and fun blogs that I probably wouldn't have stumbled across. I definitely recommend heading over to 5 Minutes for Mom and checking it out.) 

I'm Meredith. I used to be an overachieving music teacher, and now I'm a wannabe overachieving stay at home mom. Wannabe because I can't quite do it. Not crafty, not crunchy, not helicopter, not tiger. But I love being a full time mom and trying to keep two little girls alive while helping them become amazing people.

I live in Connecticut. Always have. And although we talk about leaving, after we refinanced the house we decided we are never going through the mortgage thing again, so until we win the lottery, we're here. Things I love, things I don't, but it's home.

I have two little girls. Madison is 2 1/2. She's hysterically articulate, full of drama, funny, smart and sweet. She loves hard. Reagan is 13 months. She's a peanut, a leap baby, an explorer, and attached to my hip.  I love watching them evolve from babies to little girls.

I write so I don't lose myself as I've taken on this mommy role. I'm archiving memories, but doing something for myself as well. I'm hoping that I find "my people" out there who can relate to my life.

This blog is stories, anecdotes, and reflections. I don't pretend to be a comedienne or an expert. I might share funny stories or things that I've learned, but it's our life. I mix silly and sweet, just like I do with my girls.

I've been published on Circle Of Moms. I've only been at this about 9 months, so I'm still an infant blog. I'm getting sort of ambitious though. I'm submitting more articles and I'm tossing around some book ideas.  I definitely need a blogging mentor, big sister, what have you, and if you fit the bill, I'd love to chat.

You can follow me on Facebook or Twitter and you can see what I would love to do on my Pinterest board.

If what I write makes you smile, share it!

Thanks for stopping by!!
