Here we go again...

How to start a fresh blog?

I could introduce myself, I suppose!

I'm a mommy, a wife, a businesswoman, a teacher, a friend.  I have two of the most gorgeous children I have ever laid my eyes upon (but who doesn't say that?)  I'm married to a man who makes me giggle (and pull my hair out - but who doesn't say that?)  I own a little online baby shop that I pour my heart into and hope one day will allow me to stay home with my children full-time.  I teach the most charming, sweet and funny children, better than I could dream up, I'm sure.  I have fantastic friends, although I'm much, much further away from most of them than I want to be.

I love to make things - I dabble in sewing and knitting - things for the little ones, of course! I love to bake, cook and garden.  I'd make a great 50s housewife.  Except for the housework of course, I really need to get on top of that!  I love traveling and learning about new places.  I've lived in Switzerland and England and was on an exchange to Germany when I was in high school.  I tried to learn French, but I've forgotten most of it.  I have a degree in Sociocultural Anthropology and one in Elementary Education.  I love to learn. I'd be in University all my life if I could afford it.

Motherhood has changed how I see the world.  I try to use more earth-friendly products, limiting my children's exposure to unnecessary chemicals but I still can't bring myself to throw away my bleach bottle. I look at people differently.  Spending your days trying to see a 2-year-old's point of view makes it easier to see another adult's perspective.

I hate wearing make-up, but I love pretty dresses. I love a freshly washed floor and doing laundry is my favourite chore.  It drives me crazy when my computer tells me that "colour" is spelled wrong.  I get excited when I wake up and realise that Big Brother is on TV that day.  You will often find me covered in marker stains and stickers - at work or at home.  I love watching hockey and playing baseball. My favourite food is lobster, but I'm a prairie girl through and through.

That's it for a start!
