Hello World of Mommy Bloggers!

About a year ago I started another blog just to see what I thought of blogging, and primarily to enter giveaways. I've enjoyed what I've seen of the mommy-blogger world, and would love to be more involved. I still don't know where some mommies find the time to blog, or where I'll find the time, but I want to do this!
For anyone who would like to visit my other blog, it is I've since decided on a much more fitting blog title (and a more catchy one, too!), and the title is the primary reason I'm starting this second blog. I just didn't fully like the name of my original blog. I already have a design in mind for my blog, once I get to that point!
The title for this blog comes from one of my daughter's books about a kangaroo with her pouch full of several different pets who hopped into her pouch to be cuddled when they were sleepy. At the end of the story, she finds her baby kangaroo (whom she's been searching for through the whole story) and all of the other animals get out so her baby can get in. I just like the story, and I like the title. My design idea is to have a "picture" of me with all of my "pets" (i.e. kids) in a sling or wrap "pouch" on the front of me. I can't wait til I get the actual design on my blog. It may be a while, though.

A little bit more about me. I'm a SAHM of two girls (so far), currently ages 2.5 years and 1 year. I have many things I've become passionate about since becoming a mother, and one of the many purposes of this blog will be to share (and sometimes vent) about these passions. I'm a MAJOR pro-life, pro-natural birth, pro-breastfeeding, pro-baby wearing advocate. I'm also a serious couponer (I won't say extreme, because I'm nothing near as good as some of the people on the new TLC show.). I've been couponing for about a year, and enjoying bragging about some of my finds. I have yet to decide whether I will keep my deals posts on my old blog, or keep all of my stuff on this blog. I'm into crafting and sewing, when I have time for it. I LOVE to cook and bake. I have one child with food allergies which has forced an extra measure of creativity to my kitchen creations. I like so many different things and have so many different interests, that I may seem confusing at some points with so many varying posts. But the primary purpose of my blog is to journal and share who I am and what I do. I'm not a person with many "real life" friends. Most of my friends are people I've connected with on the internet via Facebook and blogs. I look forward to finding new friends and comrades as I grow my blog.


  1. Haha!! :) SOOOOOO yesterday I linked to your old blog, only to come over here and find that you started a new one! ;) That's okay--the link is in plain sight, right?! :)

    I love your name idea... It reminds me of when you had Natalie at the helicopter Easter egg drop last year and were holding Edith in the wrap and Emma and Natalie, one on each hip... Your pocket was full! :)

    I'm looking forward to reading your posts!

  2. Love the new layout! Glad you're back to writting. Looking forward to reading your posts :)
