About me

I am a stay-at-home mom with 2 boys and 1 girl.  That's what most people see when they look at me.   But I am more than that. And so is every stay-at-home mom.  I am a gamer, hooked on pinterest, massively disorganized despite my extreme efforts, love to read and I'm a outgoing homebody.

I have a degree in Biology, with an emphasis on cell biology, from Texas A&M.  I am one class short of a chemistry minor, but that's only because inorganic chemistry scared me so much I refused to take it.  Put me in front of a microscope and I am the happiest person in the world.

I was raised as an Air Force brat and still think it's the best military branch in the world.  When I turn 8yrs old my dad was transferred to Germany, where I met my husband.  I loved Germany, and still think of it as a home.

Currently, I am a Children's ministry director for the toddlers and the Care ministry director at my church.  These are both volunteer positions, and I don't mind that.  

My greatest job is my family.  My family is quirky, and funny and completely drives me up the wall.  I hate politics, so please don't ask me about that.  My views on life are live and let live.  The only time I will not approve of another person, is if their actions hurt my family, or if it goes against God and what he states in the Bible.

I can be a 'bulldog' when it comes to my people (i.e. anyone I love).  I am a very passionate person who feels deeply.  I think my oldest gets his sensory issues from me, I hate dirt and anything slimy;  My middle one gets his outgoing ways from me; and my daughter has inherited all of my drama.  I homeschool them all according to their abilities.  Most day I like it; I really despise being on another persons schedule, or having other tell me what I have to do with my children.  

I will never be 'normal' and it's taken a while, but I'm ok with that.  Because of my differences, I'm unique.  No one else has gone though the same things I have and I haven't experienced what you have.  And you're experiences make you special too.


  1. I am like you. I have a degree in neuroscience, an autistic boy plus a "normal" one, and a lonely life inside my own home while they are at school. I chose that instead of a career 11 years ago, and while I do not regret it, it still is lonely. & years ago, we chose public school instead of homeschooling, because that is where we felt God was calling us, though he did not tell us why. I wish I could find a job that would use my talents without infringing on my "other" job outside school hours- being a mom. Too bad I cannot meet you! Michelle

  2. Thank you so much for sharing, Michelle. It's comforting to hear that there are others like me out there. I often wonder if we will continue to homeschool all of our children, or have them educated elsewhere.
    It's refreshing to see that you are still wanting to ensure that your kids are coming first, rather than another career.
    Thanks again for sharing!
