All About Me

This week I'm participating in the the Fourth annual Commenting Challenge hosted by Jenna's Journey! It's a great way to meet some new peeps and who doesn't love to do that?! Click the link in join in! 

Today's topic is "All About Me"
If you are a first timer to Moments of Mommyhood, welcome! My name is Sandy. I live in a small town in Pennsylvania with my hubby of 21 years, Mike. We have six kids: Michael(20), Brandon(18), Aaron(16), Felicia(9), Madelyn(7), and Stella(3). Of course I can't forget my fur baby our Chihuahua, Lucy!

In 2007, I left my job (that I loved) in a daycare/preschool to become a stay at home mom. It was strange to not be caring for so many other kids but I was happy to be able to give my full attention to my own family. 

In August of 2011, life as I knew it changed abruptly when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I knew I was in for the fight of my life, but I was prepared to do it for my family. After many months of chemo, radiation, and surgery I BEAT IT! I'm not going to lie, it was grueling and not something I would wish anyone to ever go through, but I am now well and going on with my life with a much better attitude. Enjoying the small things is more important than ever!

I recently started providing childcare again, in my home. It's the best of both worlds for me. I love the job and I can still stay home with my own kids. Win win! 

Here at Moments of Mommyhood, you will find some crafts that I do with the kiddos, some recipes, and just general happenings from our lives! Take a look around. I look forward to getting to know you!

    1. For me, transitioning from my job to being a SAHM was not that difficult. Because I worked in a childcare facility I, for the most part, kept the same schedule. That made it nice for the kids too because they had always been in daycare with me. Keeping a schedule was the key to making my days run smoothly!
