Gingerly dipping my toe into the blog pool...

Oh so gingerly!

What do I have to say? And who the heck wants to listen? Some days, I can tell you everyone who doesn't want to listen: my kids, my ironing pile, the grocery list, the bags under my eyes, my (gasp) complexion. Just to name a few. Oh, and my waistline.

All that aside, I decided I'd give it a whirl nonetheless. I'm a jack of many trades and master of none (save giving birth to three of the most beautiful babies this side of, well, anywhere). I thought I'd give a shot a sharing some of my "mile wide/inch deep" knowledge with whomever wants to read it! If that includes you, yippee! Welcome! I hope we can learn from each other as we muddle through life one spin cycle at a time.

Who am I? I am blessed beyond measure to be married to my college sweetheart who still makes my heart skip a beat. I am a mom to three gorgeous kidlets---two handsome boys and a sweet baby girl.

And what is this little blog, exactly? The title of my blog comes from the sense that I sometimes get that life is an endless pile of laundry. Yes, there are some gosh darn cute things in that pile. But, didn't I JUST wash that? And fold it? AND put it away? Life as Mostly Mom is pretty wild. Some days there are amazing new recipe finds. Other days there are craft projects. Or tantrums. Or homemade playdough. Or timeouts. Or stain removal. No one day is the same, with the exception of the ever-full dirty laundry baskets. And the mountain-sized blessings of the four people in my life who make it all worth while!
