I am a stay-at-home mom to three kids — elementary-aged and younger. I love my children like they are God’s precious gift to me (most days) and my number one goal as a parent is to raise godly children. As parents, it is our desire for our children to grow up knowing God loves them and for them to live to serve Him. And if I can manage to feed them more healthy meals than junk, bonus!
So, while I love my kids and want them to act loving towards me, I’m more than willing to play the “bad cop” to ensure they get the structure and discipline they need. If that earns me the badge of “The Meanest Momma” (TMM), then I’ll wear it with pride . The goal is not be loved in the moment, but to instill godly values in our children. I do look forward to the day that they “rise up and call [me] blessed” (Prov 31:28), but I’m willing to wait a year or twenty to earn that accolade.
In addition to chronicling the minutiae of our lives (mostly for the benefit of the grandparents), I also enjoy sharing homemaking tips as I learn them, reviewing [mostly] kid products I’ve come to love (or hate), and highlighting areas for kid fun in the Metro DC area as I discover them.
Creating and maintaining this site has been a good outlet for my semi-techie/creative side (prior to achieving TMM tenure, I worked as a web consultant). Like most bloggers, I love hearing from my readers, so please don’t be shy and feel free to comment!
Thanks for stopping by,
