I am a mother of two go-go-go boys: Luke, age 6 and Noah, age 3. Adding my husband of 12 years, Andy, to the mix as well as our cat, Joey, and Luke’s Madagascar Hissing Cockroach, Manny, I am completely outnumbered when it comes to genders in my home. Don’t feel bad for me–I love it! All of my boys make me feel like the Queen of My Castle. In addition to parenting, I am a full-time middle school literature teacher and co-director of the Writing Lab at Trinity Christian School of Fairfax. People always ask me, “How do you do it all?” The easy answer to that is: I don’t. I pick and choose what I get into and what I don’t, what I’ll keep up with and honestly what I can’t–just like all moms do, whether working or at-home. It’s only by the grace of God my Father that I can do anything at all!
