I've been married to the love of my life for 14 years. I'm mom to an adorable, energetic, spirited 2 year old boy. "What I'm just eating my jelly sandwich?" Work: I have been a nanny/child care provider for the same family for 10 years. They now have 3 children 10, 7, 4. I work 24 hr a week. What I am passionate about: God, my family, friends, scrapbooking, christian music and books. Play: I love playing with my son. It's fun teaching him ABC's, numbers, colors, animals, singing, doodling... He amazes me daily. (He can count to 30 by himself) He knows his letter& the sounds they make (thanks to Leap Frog Letter Factory video highly reccommend) He goes around singing the A says Ah the B says Ba! He's hilarious! My husband and I enjoy going to St. Louis for Blues hockey games. Mommy time: Twice a month I enjoy a mom's group, MOPS (Mothers of Pre Schoolers.) They are an amazing group that exists to encourage, equip and develop every mother of preschoolers to realize her potential as a woman, mother and leader in the name of Jesus Christ. It is so refreshing to get out and have conversations with mom's who have been throught or are going through the same mothering challenges. We have food, fellowship, discussion groups, speakers, do crafts, sometimes play a game. My friends and I get together one Friday night a month and scrapbook from 6pm-midnight. Oh what fun! Meals: A neighbor and I do a meal swap where we each cook 1 night a week for (our own and) the other's family. It's so nice to have a night off from cooking and to try foods I may not normally fix. Favorite cookbook: Any Gooseberry Patch. Favorite cooking magazine: Cooks Country Cooking: I am trying to adapt my cooking from convience foods to more home cooked meals. Pet Peeves: People who talk all about themselves and don't ask any questions to get to know others.(You can never have too many friends)
