It's time for 5 Minutes for Mom's Blog Party. It's a week long event where you can show off your blog, find new blogs to read, win prizes and have a lot of fun. If you want to get involved just click the link and head on over there to find out how.
If you're here for the party then allow me to introduce myself. (I had hoped to have my super-cute new layout done but for now lets all just be happy that I'm dressed.) My name is Jen and I'm a 29 year old SAHM with a great husband and two fantastic kids. I like watching cheesy reality tv, reading, blogging, talking with friends, playing with my kids, cooking and trying to restore order to my chaotic house. Very soon I will be starting a surrogate pregnancy. I look forward to being pregnant again and this time I won't be the one changing the poopy diapers afterwards! I'm very passionate about breastfeeding, being an at home parent and parenting by choice, not by chance (that means I'm pro-choice, very, very much so.) Check out some of my pet causes.
Let me introduce my kids since they're what I spend the most time talking about! Joseph is 6 and a half. He has a wicked sense of humor and I have filled my blog with stories about the crazy things he does and says. Joseph was adopted but people often tell me how much he looks like me. His adoption via foster care was really a miracle and we feel like we're so lucky to have him as our little boy. He has Asperger Syndrome and although it's occasionaly a struggle for him (and us!) I think it's really made him into the funny, quirky, brilliant boy that he his. Joseph is a really fun person to be around.
Elle (pronounced El-EE and not El) is 16 months old and an absolute joy. She's friendly and smiley and never minds when I take pictures of her and post them on my blog. She looks just like her daddy with her red hair and great big cheeks. Elle's bright and sunny personality hasbeen a real joy to me. She makes me laugh all the time with her silly little ways.
My husband Jesse is a great guy! He does all the snowblowing in the winter and the lawn mowing in the summer. He fills my car up with gas so that I don't have to do it. If I could just get him to help out in the kitchen once in a while he would be the perfect guy. Sometimes I can't belive that we've been married for over 7 years now. Time flies when you're having fun I guess!
So that's my life in a nutshell. If you would like to know more about me please stick around and read some more of my blog. I love getting to know new people and look forward to meeting people at this party. And please, come back in April because I have something big planned that I would love to share with you. In the meantime, happy blogging!
