My name is Cathy and I am an Attached Mama. Like most mamas, I wear many hats in life.
I am the wife of a wonderful man named Doug. He is my best friend. He always makes me laugh. I can always share my heart with him. And no matter what wacky thing I show an interest in, he has always been there to support me. I am so incredibly blessed to have him in my life.
We have also been blessed with three wonderfully sweet little children. Becoming a mother has been a true life changing experience. They have taught me so much about myself. I am constantly surprised and awed by what wonderful little people they are growing into. I count myself blessed to be called their mama. We are a homeschooling family, so much of this blog is devoted to our adventures learning and playing. I try to teach my children that learning is a part of life.
Marcus is 7 years old and in 2nd grade. He is best described as my "creative, deep-thinking" child. He likes building, talking about pokemon, and playing 'war'.
Sophie is 6 and "officially' in first grade, but she likes to keep up with her big brother. So she mostly works at what he is doing. She loves sports and playing outside.
Joseph is our newest family member. His hobbies include being cute, making messes, and exploring the world.
I am an avid sewer. I sew mostly clothing and aprons...however, now and then I will venture into the home decor side of crafting. I love working with beautiful fabric and will often use this blog to talk about the various things I have sewn or crafted.
Before having children, I worked full time as an Electrical Engineer for a large corporation. Since having Marcus I have been a full time, stay at home mom. I have to say that I really enjoy homemaking and strive to give it my very best. So from time to time I also will talk about cleaning and organizing tips, recipes, and meal planning.
Last, but not least, we practice Attachment Parenting. We co-slept with all of our children, we wore them as babies/toddlers. and we extended breastfeeding. We also try to practice gentle dicipline strategies whenever possible. So from time to time I will also talk about Attachment Parenting. I am not The Attached Mama as the name applies. I am not perfect, I make mistakes, but I will share my views on parenting in an honest and helpful manner.
Thanks for stopping by my blog to read!
