Joining the BlogHop!

This post is on behalf of the FIRST annual Boy Mom BlogHop, hosted by the M.O.B. Society (A blog community for moms of boys, BY moms of boys). So here's a little about me, my boys, and this blog.

I'm Jennie, and I'm a mom to three very blond boys: Sam, who is 4.5 (that .5 is very important to him), Josh, who is 2.5 (and that .5 is very important to me), and Luke, who is seven months old. So between them, my hubby, and our new puppy, Zeus, I'm pretty outnumbered in our house. And one day, when the boys' testosterone levels skyrocket, I'll need some serious help. Seriously.

I post about everything under the sun on this blog, including funny things my kids do/say, updates on our little family, my own rants (that's a big one, and my bad temper is a common trend), and many writing prompts to fill in the in-betweens.

Along with being a SAHM, I'm a writer and aspiring author. I love to write, and that's what occupies most of my free time late at night, when the house is asleep and my mind can finally breathe. I've written three novels, two of which are still in the extensive editing process. I hope to get published someday, but I'm not sure where the road is going to take me. And there's a lot about that journey I also share on this blog.

My kids like any books with letters and numbers, and my oldest loves learning and "writing" on my computer (opens MS Word and types random letters, etc.), as well as any computer game. Even if he doesn't have the slightest clue what it is or how to play. He would be on the computer all day if he could, where as Josh would be at a park all day if he could.

I love a good book, a great movie, or a well-written TV show, I love the outdoors and spending time with my family, I love chocolate and carbs (or eating general), I love some good, dry humor, I call my kiddos "children of the corn" on a regular basis, and I absolutely LOVE being a M.O.B.

And I'm always happy to meet other bloggers!

hopping over from the MOB Society... I'd love to read those books someday - or rather listen to them on mp3; since having kids there's no time to actually sit down and read.

Hahahaha...still laughing at the "children of the corn" part.

I'm visiting from the MOB Society. Your boys are so adorable. My 3 year old loves to play on our computer. We got him into the KidsCBC website (Canadian kids shows) that has only children's games. He's getting pretty good and learning a lot too.

Thankfully, Malachai was a redhead. But I'm still laughing.
Nice, straightforward intro. Like it!
Good luck with the books.
Came from TL&TLB linkup.

"when the house is asleep and my mind can finally breathe." favorite, and sometimes only, time to write.
