It's My SITS Day!

If you're stopping by from SITS, welcome! I'm so glad you could stop by. I hope you enjoy what you read and come back often. I am also slightly addicted to Twitter so you can find me there a lot too @brennbug.

For those of you who don't know SITS is a group of women bloggers who support each other through comment support and recognition. I joined SITS about a year ago and I am so excited my day in the spotlight has arrived!

I'm a twenty-something mommy to two nine year olds and one seven year old, on a new adventure, now living on the east coast, thousands of miles from our family. Working as a full-time nanny to infant twins, still a full-time mommy. I'm always busy and there is always more laundry and dishes than this mommy of three can keep up with! Want to join me on the journey?

I write about being a mom, the joys, the struggles, life in general, and I try to post new, easy recipes a couple times a month. Here's a few of my favorite posts:


Bloggy Boot Camp - What I Learned.

How Close is Too Close?

If The World Was A Playground

Super Mashers With Chicken and Green Chili Hash

If you want to learn more about Me and My Crazy Family.

If you want to see a silly video of my kids Dancing With Your Doll.

Thanks again for stopping by! Have a great day!

First, congrats on today! Second, welcome to Baltimore! My boyfriend and I "escaped" to Colorado some 16 years ago, to put distance between us and the fam...only to eventually return to Baltimore, married and with a baby...we now have 5 and yes, marriage is hard work, but totally worth every minute!!
I'll be back to visit!

Ahhh -- is there life after dishes and laundry? The age old question Moms and housewives have been asking themselves for centuries. If you find the answer, kindly send it our way, would ya?

Two things that seem to be neverending, eh?

You know it's time to do the dishes when you're using a pizza cutter to slice lemon!

I want to carry your kids faces in my pocket and keep them with me all day! Darling!

Wishing you a happy SITS day --enjoy your time in the sun --you deserve it.

Peace and serenity,
~Jo
