About Me

Creating a short blurb that can accurately capture me is tough.  However, if you've seen any of the blog, you have seen my main motivation and reason for being, my son, Xander.  I am a twenty-something year old divorced mother.  I just finished up grad school to get a teaching degree and will be on the wonderful adventure of teaching high school science.  My biggest dream would be to home school my son (and any potential future children).  In the meantime I am trying hard to  balance everything while providing the happiest, most enriching childhood possible.  My life definitely hasn't taken the path I planned, or anything close to it, but I still consider myself incredibly blessed.

  3. I agree with the previous comment. I have no kids yet myself, but work with foster children, and though I've only had time to look at a small fraction of this site so far I can already see that its going to be very useful.

    1. Swathi,

      Thank you for the sweet compliment! I try hard with him, but I know I am far from perfect!

      As far as what you need to buy, that is really up to your and your kids. My printer was a big investment for me. I print on card stock a LOT, so I actually called all the printer customer service reps to find the most economical printer that would handle it well (I was very disappointed to learn most printers are not built to handle printing on card stock. Of course, I learned it after I ruined the feed system on my previous printer). I ended up with an HP Office Pro 8600 (http://amzn.to/RIqPa1). I have been very happy with it and have been pleasantly surprised by how long the ink lasts. Another staple is a laminator. I have this one (http://amzn.to/HAX9Be) and either buy these sheets (http://amzn.to/MCCl2N) or the ones from Sam's Club, depending on which is cheaper at the time.

      The rest of what you want would depends on how old your children are. If you have really young children, I would recommend downloading the free trial of Little Reader (http://www.brillkids.com/ra.php?BKAFF58564) My son is two and can read hundreds of words, most of which I attribute to that program. As far as toys go, I like the open ended and creative toys.

      I hope this answers your questions! Feel free to email me any time.
