Six is in the Mix

Hello and happy Tuesday!  Today I am up over at Kiwi Lane Designs showcasing this layout! My first baby is turning six tomorrow and she as my true inspiration for this creative moment.  I still can’t believe she is going to be six!  I can’t believe I have kept her alive for six years! When she was born I knew NOTHING about babies and I do mean NOTHING.  I was very much all thumbs out the gate and could not even keep a plant alive.  I did start with a dog before we had kids.  My Sadie Dog was such an easy pooch to train and when I needed to I could crate her – probably not the best benchmark for our family planning expectations :-).

Each time I would head into the pediatrician’s office during her infant well baby checks, I would announce to the doctor, “She is 3 months, 4 months a year old. . . and she is still alive!”  I was never more terrified of something that only weighed 8lbs.  I think the doctor took pity on me and always gave me great words of encouragement and support to weather the storm of being a first time mom sans a mom of my own on speed dial.

Needless to say, this layout is proof that I am slowly figuring out this whole motherhood thing and am loving every minute of it!

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.
