Since my blog is so young, I thought it would be fun to do one of those 30 day blog challenges. I might do one or two or three days in one, or I might skip a day. My life is crazy and I can’t always get to it every day.
So today is Day 1- The Name of my Blog
The name of my blog is named after our family. When I decided to start this blog, it was a commitment from our whole family. My husband and kids had to be on board with me before I started. Any time I do something for “myself”, it takes time away from my family. So they all had to be understanding.
Blogging is something I have wanted to do for a long time, but I have been too scared that I wasn’t “good” at writing. But, I decided to get over it and practice, practice, practice! I try to read as many other blogs as I can, but since time is always running low around here, I don’t get to read as much as I would like.
Anyway, back to the name for the blog. It comes from my children. I have 5 kids. 3 boys and 2 girls. My oldest boy, Bennett, is 8. Then my two girls; Maddyx is 6, and Hadley is 4. Then my two baby boys; Becker is 2 and Archer is 1. We stay pretty busy and I LOVE it!!
I grew up in a big family. I have three siblings and we are all only 6 years apart. As a kid in a big family there is always someone to play with. When our family gets together, the space gets filled with laughter and shouts of joy and happiness. And now all my siblings are having kids! And there is ALWAYS food involved. Food seems to always bring our family together. My mom has the right idea, feed them and they will come!
My family is still very young and crazy and our home is always filled with some kind of noise. So for now, I cherish the quiet moments. Unless the baby is awake, then the quiet is very suspicious!
