Welcome to my crazy world!

Hello people and welcome to my blog!

For those of you who don’t know me, I thought I would take the time to introduce myself. My name is Jess. I’m a wife and homeschooling mom to 4 beautiful children. On the rare occasions that I have “free time” I enjoy reading, taking bubble baths, and dying my hair pretty colors. My hair has basically been every color of the rainbow. I also tend to be a chronic over-sharer and enthusiastic, albeit talentless, dancer.

Showing off my latest color combo – blue and purple! Very MLP-esque

Speaking of talentless… You should know I am not, nor will I ever claim to be, a good writer. I don’t care about using proper grammar, I have a limited vocabulary, and I just write the way I talk. If you’re a member of the grammar police, your corrections will fall on deaf ears… (Or blind eyes? Just don’t bother correcting me. You’ll waste your time.) Just sit back, relax, and enjoy knowing that you are way better than me. Congrats!

My mind tends to wander so I imagine my blog posts will, too. These are just some of the topics that I’m interested in and/or passionate about (in alphabetical order, just because): adoptee rights, animals, attachment parenting, babies, breastfeeding, chronic illness, cooking, crafts, gardening, homeschooling/unschooling, justice, mental illness, peaceful discipline, tolerance, and yoga. (Whew!) My kids are also planning on starting their own YouTube channel, so you’ll be blessed with super adorable videos as well. Aren’t you lucky?

One last thing you should know is that I intend for my blog to be a SAFE PLACE. I will not allow anyone to attack me, my family, or my friends (including my readers, assuming I have any and they actually post comments). Just so we’re clear…

I encourage discussions (how else would we learn?) but never personal attacks. I experienced some of this the last time my blog was active, and I’m not going to put up with it this time. If you plan on contributing nothing but rude comments or negativity in general, do us all a favor and stop reading. As a reminder, I will be including a short disclaimer at the end of most of my posts.

Well, that’s it for now, folks. Huge thanks to those of you who read this far. I’m impressed. *High fives*

I hope you enjoy following us on this crazy journey!
