Us – me, my husband, and our son.
Let’s do that backwards.
Our son was born this April, making him just over 4 months old right now. He is our beautiful gift from God. I do believe he is just about the most gorgeous creature on earth, and the sweetest to boot. How lucky am I??
My husband is a serious computer geek. We met in the 7th grade, started dating 8 years later, and got engaged 3 years after that. We were married this past February. He’s a pretty awesome guy.
Hmm, me. I’m not terribly exciting. For instance, I’m an accountant. I did 5 years of distance education to earn myself a bachelor’s degree and a professional designation, but really all I want to be is a stay at home mom. Right now I’m on maternity leave, but when the time comes to go back I will either be working from home or not working at all. I’ve simply no desire to leave my precious little bundle of joy to be raised by someone else while I go to work to pay daycare bills each month.
We’re a pretty quiet family (well, a bit nosier now that the little man has joined us, but fortunately he’s more laughter than cries). We’re Christian and currently attend an Anglican church (a decidedly conservative one that matches our beliefs, for those aware of the current controversy and split within the Anglican Church of Canada as well as the Episcopalian Church of the USA).
This blog will likely be the Chronicles of the Changes of Me – new wife, new mother, new cruchy hippy wanna-be. Who knew having a baby would be the start of a complete revision of self?
