We are a loving family of 3! Dad (Kev) lives in another city about 30 minutes away, so we only get to spend the weekends with him. The cost of living in my area is extremely high, so therefore we are not able to afford to make the big move just yet. Plus, we really like our space. It might be a strange concept for some people, but it works really well for us. Dad loves his Cadillac CTS-V, Saltwater fish tanks, and Golden State Warriors. Mom (Erica) is a full time college student, pursuing a degree in Philosophy. What will I do with Philosophy you say? Well the answer is, whatever the hell I want! Philosophy majors can pretty much pursue a career in any field they want and that is exactly what I intend to do. I love crafting, writing, reading, talking and minecraft 🙂 . Most of all I love being a Mom! Abby is a 10 year sweetheart that loves Karate, Charlotte Hornets, arts & crafts, musicly, youtube, Roblox and of course Minecraft. We enjoy playing board games together, watching TV, journaling, drawing and really just being together.
I started this page in hopes of documenting the things I do on a daily, if not, weekly basis. I am a mom to a 10 year old beautiful girl named Abby. We call her Apple and she did not fall far from the tree, she is the best of both her father and me. I do a ton of activities with her throughout the week and I really felt moved to share these things with you. Hopefully, you will enjoy these precious moments with us and share some of the fun things you do also!
I am a full time college student, with two jobs and I feel like it is very important to mention this, as like most of you, my time and resources are very limited. I don’t feel like time and money should define who I am as a person and more importantly a parent. If I let these things control who I am, well, I would be the grouch I once was!
The term grouch mom came into place when I was working 3rd shift at a local hotel. I was ALWAYS tired, ALWAYS grouchy, ALWAYS broke, and ALWAYS miserable. I would warn Apple about waking up the GROUCH MOM, just to get a few hours of extra sleep, and it didn’t change until one day she told me that I was ALWAYS the GROUCH MOM. This really broke my heart, to know she felt this way, and from that day forward I have done everything in my power to keep Grouch Mom at bay. She still visits when I’ve asked Apple to take out the trash for the 50th time, or when she wants to raise hell about taking a shower, but for the most part, she just stays in her can where she is happy!
We get our hands into everything! We have so many interest, and are forever exploring! Some of the things we enjoy are Crafting, Bargain Shopping, Cooking, Watching movies, Board games, Writing, Drawing, Reading, Journaling, making stop motion videos, creating doll accessories and furniture, and of course our favorite is Eating! Just so you are aware, I am not perfect at documenting all of these things. Often times, when I’m doing a project that I want to take step by step pictures of, well I usually miss a step or two, I just get so caught up! It is my goal to get better at that, so just bare with me, and I promise to at least tell you the steps I missed!
