Who Are We?

I’m Nicole.  30-something Wife of 40-something Matt (a banker), stay-at-home mom to Luke (13), Bennett (11) and Jack Henry (8). I feel like I just became a mom and should still be home with babies, but alas, I’m suddenly that mom with school-aged kids and days that just opened wide.

I’m a graduate of the University of Illinois, with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies, with an emphasis on Early Childhood (kind of an education/psychology mix).  The years I’ve been able to stay home with my boys has been amazing and challenging and fun and mundane, as every stay-at-home mom understands.  Our life and parenting is definitely imperfect, and in the spirit of full disclosure, I write about all of it: the good, the bad, the embarrassing, the funny.

We spend countless hours at the ballpark, watching all 3 boys play baseball. While it makes life crazy and hectic, we love it and wouldn’t have it any other way.

I also blog about what’s cooking (literally) in our house at Three More Bites, a recipe blog I share with my friend Sonya.

Welcome to this glimpse of daily life in our testosterone-saturated house…

    your boys are so cute! this is a great idea.
    odd question: in the geotrax pics, there is a litle wooden bench/storage box…is that from when we were little? i swear i remember that.

  4. Suzanne, I’m so glad you wrote! The bench in the background is from my house when we were little…my dad built it for me. We brought it here last spring and the boys love it.
