A couple of things about me…

My kids are my creative center.

I love making messes and I abhor clutter.

All children intrigue me. I am especially drawn to the tricky ones.

Learning from children is my passion. 

Being in nature teaches me something every single time. 

Being among a group of children teaches me something every single time. 

I know lots and lots of things about early childhood but I am terrified of tweendom. It really scares me.

Being a mom is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. 

Being a mom is the best thing I’ve ever become.

I don’t know a thing about website design, but I am really trying to learn.
