Meet the family: Married mama of two Dudes!
Why we love her: We love that her blog is a great mix of daily family life and informative posts about language learning for children. Since she’s a pediatric speech pathologist she seriously knows what she’s talking about and her site gives great tips for growing language in children while doing everyday tasks! Plus? She takes some pretty great photos too!
Why she thinks you should check out her site:
I write about my struggles and triumphs raising two boys while being a full time working mom and military wife. I also share my love of cooking, knitting and recently am learning how to take a decent picture that doesn’t involve the Auto function on my camera.
Growing, Growing, Growing!
I started blogging because I wanted to share my experience as a new mom with friends and family….I started knitting because I wanted to create something other than scratchy afgans and slippers….I started cooking because I was tired of making meals from a box…..I started learning more about my camera because I was tired of having less than stellar photos to share with my friends, family and readers. I became a Pediatric Speech Language Pathologist because I love kids and love helping them improve their language, memory, voice, and feeding/swallowing skills.
Balancing Work & Family Time
Ha does anyone really know the key to this?? If they do I would LOVE to know how. Once returning to work after maternity leave with my first born I had the hardest time transitioning back to a full time working mom. I changed jobs for a short time but then went back working 32 hours a week. My one day a week off helps me not feel so guilty about having the boys in daycare and lets me connect with them.
Stuff You Should Read That She’s Written
We love the reviews on Our Life Memories. Here are a few awesome ones for DC Area parents to enjoy:
- The one with the potty training tips you’ll wish you had.
- A few menu planning tips for making life easier.
- Some heartfelt advice for new moms.
