Why I am completely crazy…

So I have had this blog all formatted for a few weeks now and still have not come up with the proper first post and as I was simultaneously folding a load of laundry, refereeing the cat and the dog and listening to T$ sing a song from Mulan for the 14th million time it hit me… the best way to introduce my readers to this blog is to explain, the best I can, the crazy.

So first I will introduce the players; First there is hubby. He is an amazing man who I have been with for 9 years. He is the only person in the world that I could think of that would be able to handle all this crazy and that makes me love him all the more. In August we will celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary and I can honestly say that I love him more and more with each passing day.

Then there is T$, our first born, and our real introduction to crazy. Seriously hubby and I thought we had life all together and we knew exactly what we were doing. Then T$ was born. Literally all hell broke loose. He will be 4 in October and I literally cannot imagine a more funny, entertaining, sarcastic little kid that I would want to spend every waking second with (more on the every waking second part in a bit).

Then┬áthere is Buggy. He is just a few months over one and he is the sweetest little butterball you could think of. Coined Buggy by T$ 3 days after we brought him home; “Mommy you call me Bug so you can call him Buggy” he brings the sweet when the crazy is almost too much to handle. He also contributes to the crazy with his high pitched demands for constant affection and feeding. Seriously, do not let this kid even know you are thinking about eating unless you plan to feed him as well.

Adding to our slew of characters are two cats who are seriously so bratty and a sweet little Bichon-Shih-Tzu Mix named Toby.

I am a Work at Home Mom (WAHM) for a Wine Barrel Brokerage and I work a LOT. I mean A LOT! Before I had kiddos I would swear up and down that I would never want to be a stay at home mom, that I could not wait to go back to work and get back to my career. Well 21 hours of labor changed that thought in a heartbeat. So yes, I spend just about every waking second with my boys. We do everything together and to be honest I would not change that for anything. This is also going to be a main focus of this blog. When I first became a WAHM I was scouring the internet for tips on how to juggle it all. While I found some I never found something that was great. I hope to provide some tips and experience I have gained over the last 4 years. These will appeal to all moms that are trying to get things done with kids in the house.

Another contributing factor to my craziness. I’m a self-proclaimed hippie. I love all things green and I am passionate about saving this earth. I want my boys to grow up with an appreciation for the land we live on and all the things that make this earth fab! We are not experts on being green but as a family we have come a long way and I hope to share all the stuff I come across with you. My first green tip is to head over to a blog I have been a contributing writer for, Eco Chic Baby and make sure to follow it. Also check out Frugal Faye, she is seriously the greatest!

Hubby is a bit of a neat freak and I am a total organizing junkie. I have been accused far too many times for moving things around just because I like to organize. Of course all cleaning and organizing projects, tips, random thoughts and the like will be posted for your enjoyment.

So now that I have given you this Pulitzer Prize worthy synopsis of what we are all about make sure to subscribe or follow or whatever the heck you do and enjoy the ride.

Embracing the crazy…
