Hello and welcome to my blog,
My name is Mary and I am a middle aged Mom but I still feel like I am 18 on the inside! I love to write, craft, bake, decorate, take photos and do most things that are creative and I love a good laugh. I have been married for 22 years (at least I think we are at 22 years) and we have 3 children ages 19, 16 and 14. I was a stay at home Mom full time for eight years and they were some of the best years of my life. I loved to do crafts and bake with my children and throw parties for birthdays and holidays. Staying home was such a worthwhile experience for me. I went back to work part time for a few years and then I worked full time as a educational assistant. I worked with so many wonderful children with special needs, developmental delays and behaviour problems from kindergarten through grade 6. My educational background is a B.A. in psychology with the majority of courses in child psychology and development. Currently I have just moved to the United States with my family and we are learning about life here. I feel I have reached the point in my life where I have a lot of wisdom to share with other families. ( Plus, I am mourning the loss of small children and all the fun that comes with that in my home) I would love to use my blog to connect with your family and share all of my ideas and thoughts and hear yours as well. Blogging has been such a great creative outlet for me .♥
May 2014 : I have decided that instead of erasing my original ‘About’ Page, I would just update it. I originally started my blog because I wanted to share ideas about parenting and some of my birthday party and craft ideas. I soon found out that sharing my children’s birthday party ideas was a challenge — since they happened long ago and the photos aren’t digital. I ended up finding lots of other things to share on my blog and I have had a lot of fun with it. My children have aged even more and I have just reached my 25th wedding anniversary! Since I started blogging, my family has moved from Canada to Kansas, U.S.A. Now that has been a big change in our lives! I have new stories to share about our life here and our travels and all of the new adventures that come our way!
