It's My SITSday!

How to Blog

Welcome SITStas! I am so excited that you are here for my SITSday! If you're not familiar with SITS, you should check it out! SITS, which stands for The Secret is in the Sauce, is an amazing network of bloggers that support each other with comment love. But that's not all, the SITS site is full tips for bloggers. Please, go visit the SITS girls!

Wow, having my SITSday today sure takes the funk out of Monday morning! So, let me introduce myself, I'm Sandy, mom of 6 awesome kids! They range in age from 18 to 16 months. Three boys, Michael, Brandon, Aaron, and three girls, Felicia, Madelyn, and Stella. I've been married to my hubby Mike for 19 years and he is just as awesome as my kiddos. For 15 years I worked in a daycare/preschool where a fell in love with doing crafty things with little ones. Now that I am a SAHM, I do many of those kid crafts with my kids at home. I hope you get a chance to check them out.

For the most part, we have a pretty "normal" life, but this past August I began a fight for my "normal" life when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I'm just past the halfway point of my chemotherapy and things are looking good. I recently found out that the tumor in my breast is shrinking! I try to keep a positive attitude about it all and hearing this has been so encouraging. I can and will beat this!!!

Please, take some time to look around and see what Moments of Mommyhood is all about.
Thank you all for visiting! Have a fabulous day!

  6. Congrats on your SITS day! You must have your hands full with 6 children, that is amazing you can handle it all so well :) I used to teach preschool also, for 4 years, and I loved it!! Kids are so much fun. I'm sorry to hear about your breast cancer & it is very inspiring to see how positive you are. I have been going through a scare myself [I'm getting a biopsy tomorrow] after failing the breast exam/sonogram & your blog is really supportive! Thanks for sharing :)

  21. Oh sweetie, I can only imagine what you are going through. I just stopped by from SITS. I had a craniotomy to resect a brain tumor last year. My aunt is a radiation therapist and sees breast cancer patients daily. It's a battle for sure. When I was faced with my own diagnosis, my mom wanted to by me that t-shirt. It rocks. I wish you the best of luck with your treatment. I hope I can be a sympathetic ear and a virtual support through your treatment. Finding a community online really helped me. It looks like you have already done that ;)
