Teaching my children to question authority, except mine.

About Me & Contact Info


This is the story of a social worker from Ohio who moved to Pittsburgh to marry the man of her dreams and then became a stay at home mom of 2 in Tennessee, chasing sleep and sanity.  I am trying to raise confident, intelligent girls who will question authority – just not my authority.

This blog started as a way to document my oldest daughter’s adoption from Guatemala.  If you want to learn more about that process, start at the beginning.  My archives are in the sidebar – it is all there.

These days I tend to write mostly about my kids with the occasional rant about something stuck in my craw, some recipes, some crafty things, and some product reviews and recommendations thrown in.
