Smiling, nodding, teaching. Loving!

I am a stay at home mother and wife. I’m really good at spelling and really bad at keeping up with my laundry. It’s a real affliction. Cause: ambivalence.

I am married to a Coastie whom I affectionately refer to as The Huzbund (or The Huz or TH). We have two beautiful little boys, Mowgli (the jungle boy) and Moppet (the forest creature).

I tentatively, hopefully and optimistically plan on homeschooling our boys and any future children we may have. It is my hope to reach out to other mothers who don’t quite fit any single facile, shallow label on the homeschooling front.

My favorite place to be is at home, playing with my kids, reading or otherwise immersing myself in interesting information. A close second is outside, engaged in the manual labor involved in raising animals and vegetables. Sometimes our Coast Guard life allows for that kind of activity and sometimes it doesn’t.

My favorite movie is Forrest Gump, I have a slight-to-moderate Southern accent, I wear a size 1o shoe and I am moved to tears of gratitude on a regular basis. Because I love my husband, my babies and even my dog just so gaw-dang much.
