How very prosaic… About me…
The basics… I am the SAHM to five daughters and 1 (step) son. Though only the 5 daughters truly count these days because my son is off serving his country in the US Army. I am endlessly busy… I am head taxi driver, referee, head cook, baker, arbitrator, justice provider, care giver, domestic engineer and pet feeder. My job is 24/7 and I do it almost without complaining… well… I do bitch a bit when the baby wakes up 5 or 6 times a night… but who wouldn’t?
My life is insane. It’s full of ups and down… sometimes a lot more down than up, but I’d like to think I am a glass is half full kinda girl.
I am, sadly according to some, completely addicted to werewolf and vampire erotica… well… I girl has to have something to fantasize about. I do love those alpha males. I also love sushi and know enough about good chocolate to appreciate it when I taste it! I enjoy photography, hanging out with my friends, baking, green tea lemonade from Starbucks and dream of a day when I no longer have to change anyone’s diapers.
I am in my mid thirties. I was born in May. I am a Gemini. I can’t cook pork to save myself. I hate cooked tomatoes, chocolate ice-cream and pudding. I also hate doing laundry… so the laundry monster is frequent yelling taunts from the washroom. I enjoy crochet, digital scrapbooking and adding things on Pinterest. I’d like to write a novel one day. I am Australian born and bred, and I am longing for the day that I get to go home for good. I don’t cloth diaper and I vaccinate my children. I believe in baby-led weaning and believe 100% that breast is best. No yucky chemical formula for my girls thank you very much.
I’d like to think I am friendly, trust worthy and generally a good person. I like to listen and care for my family and friends. I think I am tolerant and only occasionally judgemental. I DON’T discuss religion or politics… only because I don’t like arguing or being brow beaten for not agreeing with others.
I am a mother. It’s a big part of who I am, not what defines me as a total person. I am hoping 2012 will help me define who and what I am even more.
