Hello! My name is Char-Marie.
I live in Springfield, MO with my husband Colby:
Our 6 year old son Emery Jack:
and our 3 year old daughter Cecilia Grace:
I am a 32 year old former Elementary teacher, turned stay at home mom (SAHM), turned Working mom in the middle of a huge career change and finishing nursing school this coming Spring! The decision to make the switch difficult and I went back and forth over whether or not going back to school and starting a very demanding career was best for our family. I was blessed beyond belief to be able to stay at home with my beautiful kids, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t days that I wanted to fill my pockets with rocks and head off to the lake. This is the hardest, most rewarding job I’ve ever had in my life, and I’ve had some crazy jobs.
This blog has been with me since my crazy college days and has transformed throughout the years into something a little less “party all night” and a little more “how do I get my kids to eat vegetables?” The purpose of this blog is to provide an outlet for my crazy antics as a parent and the occasional recipe or craft.
