Hi, I’m Steph.
Nice to meet you here in this little space. That’s me up there with the most amazing kid I know. She is such a gift, and teaches us so much about life. Like, who knew two thirty-something, educated adults would be no match for a toddler who is so not tired at 8:30 PM? When did we become these people, and will we ever be able to stay up past 10 again?
Anywho, I am a teacher by day and toddler-chaser/recreational-baker/author-wannabe by night. I’m also wife to my best friend. We met long before we finally got together, and have been weirdos together for the better part of a decade (wow, that’s weird). Marriage is definitely not what I dreamed about as a young girl using toilet paper to make fancy wedding dress trains and watching “A Wedding Story” on TLC…it’s so much better. And watching him turn into a dad – that’s one of the biggest blessings of my life, well that and the fact that he puts up with me. Ever since we found out we were having a girl, she’s had her Daddy wrapped around her little finger. That’s the way it should be. They make one heck of a pair.
So, why did I choose to embark on this blogging journey? I taught fourth grade for several years, and here in Texas that means BIG WRITING TEST. Eek! Once I got up off the floor after the heart attack, I discovered that not only did I really enjoy teaching writing but it turned out that I really enjoyed writing myself, and maybe I’m not too shabby at it. Then, I had a kid and went and lost myself, like so many mothers tend to do. I desperately needed to find a way to document the journey to find how I fit into these new shoes, but still remain myself. So, here we are…me sharing my thoughts, two of you reading. Welcome to my small corner of the interwebs. Kick off your shoes, curl up on the couch and stay a while.
Enjoy what you read? Drop me a line and give me a follow!
