Welcome to the party!!!


I'm late joining the blog party at 5 Minutes for Mom, but then again, I'm late for almost everything, so you may as well get used to it! :)

Hi! I'm Martha! No, not THAT Martha. Although, I love her show and I wouldn't mind being compared to her in my home keeping and organization. I did have a car that my friend named Stewart while I was in college. "Then we can see your car drive by and say, 'There goes Martha's Stewart!" G-R-O-A-N!

Not THAT Martha, either. Although, I identify with her as well. Perhaps not the character traits I'm most proud of.

I am a 28? 27? 27. Yes, 27 year old wife and mom of two. Why am I late joining the party you ask? Aren't the kids excited? Well, I'll let you take a look for yourself.

Let me introduce Joey. He's 2 and a half. He is running a temperature of 101.2 at the moment and is spending the afternoon with Caillou and his family.


Let me take you into the nursery and introduce you to Abby. Shh! She's not feeling well, either! She had Joey's fever last week and has been a stinker-pot today. Abby will be 9 months old tomorrow.


Please don't let me mislead you. My children are usually joyful, giggly and exuberant. Joey loves to play trains, jump on the bed and be in charge. Why not? He is the oldest child of two first-born children!
Abby is very mellow and loves to flirt with anyone who will let her. She is always moving her body and is trying with all her might to figure out how to crawl.

My blog is a brain dump for my thoughts on my life as a child of God, wife, mom, and the many other roles I serve. Thanks for attending our somewhat subdued party! I hope you will come visit again when everyone is feeling better!

Don't forget to wash your hands on the way out!
