I'm the girl that thought I would stay in the corporate world forever. Yeah, take six weeks off or so every couple of years to have a baby or two, but it was all about career. As soon as the stick turned positive that fateful day in 2002, I marched into my manager's office and quit my job. I haven’t been back since. A year after the birth of our beautiful daughter, our adorable twin boys were born.The details of those first months of having three kids under 13 months old are quite fuzzy so I will just say it was pure joy (Ok…that is a complete and total lie. I do recall dropping one while tandem breastfeeding, falling asleep on the carpet while reading Goodnight Moon, and singing John Denver tunes in the kitchen at the top of my lungs to drown out the crying in triplicate).
It’s now hard to believe that my kids’ tween years are here. I have realized that time is fleeting and I need to make the most of their childhood and my time as their parent. I don’t want to waste away time on smartphones and the internet, only to look up years from now and wish I had spent more time connecting with my brood. Therefore, I have decided to go on a journey to discover how taking one moment each day to connect with our kids may change everything. Join me at www.hotmamaconnected.com
