I am a 33 year old full time, Colorado mom and part time bartender. I spend my days cooking and cleaning, playing, crossfitting, and writing. There is always something to do with five kids and a husband around! I am learning to express my opinions and thus be more offensive to some and appealing to others. And that’s ok! We can offend each other and not share the same beliefs and still be friends, or at least people who read each others’ blogs and live in peace….Whether you share my parenting views, disagree with my cursing, enjoy my rantings, understand big family life (or don’t/want to) and thus the need for wine, or simply want a different blogging experience; I am here!
My family is large and loud, energetic, insane and absolutely perfect! Our 7 family household often turns heads when out in public, but we think we are great. With 4 boys and only 1 girl, testosterone often wins out and I am left struggling to catch up, clean up, and rest up for the next activity. I am always looking for things to do to keep everyone occupied, whether it be a fun craft, a new responsibility, or a destination. I strive to teach my children that life is fun and full of opportunities but that they must balance entertainment and enjoyment with responsibility and practicality.
