Thanks for joining me!
A couple of people have told me that I would make an excellent blogger. Each person that has told me this had a different idea of what exactly I should blog about.
So I guess this blog is about me. My likes, my hobbies, my passions, and most of all my crazy adventures in parenting and life.
A little about me:
(@Lady Antebellum concert)
My name is Nichole. I just recently turned 30. I have 4 biological children. My son is 8, my oldest daughter is 6, and I have 3-year-old fraternal twin girls.
I am recently divorced. After a 2 year-long process my divorce became finalized in July of 2017 and I have 50/50 custody of my kids with my ex. We alternate weeks on Sundays.
**CO-PARENTING IS HARD** I have a feeling I will be writing quite a bit about my adventures (good and bad) with co-parenting.
My significant other has 3 children. Step-parenting is also ridiculously hard. My bonus kids are a 7-year-old little girl, a 2-year-old little girl, and a 1-year-old boy.
When I’m not busy with work and mom stuff I like to take time for myself to do things that remind me that I am my own person and not just a mom.
I sew, I read, I play an awful lot of video games, I write, I go to a lot of concerts, and I like to attend as many conventions as I possibly can because being surrounded by people like me (nerdy, geeky and proud) makes me feel at home.
I am doing this now (I have been contemplating starting a blog for years) because over the last year I have discovered a lot about myself, my children, my parenting style, and life in general. I have a surplus of support and insight from all different kinds of people walking all different paths in life, and it is helping to shape me into the mom I have always wanted to be.
Honestly, I’m just kind of winging life currently. I’m having a tremendous amount of fun doing it, and I’m learning a lot of new things along the way that I have been wanting to share with others.
So have fun! And let me know what struggles you are having with life, maybe I’ve been there, and maybe I can help, but at the very least I can offer an ear to listen, a shoulder to cry on, or a glass of wine to help you through it!
