This Mommy is Headed to College

After working as a stay-at-home mommy for the last 14 years, I have decided to return to the halls of academia to pursue a degree in Social Work. As if running a household with five children isn't a study in social work itself! That's correct- I have FIVE children. Ranging in age from 5-15, my four sons and one daughter think they are up for the challenge of living without mommy micromanaging the household. My wonderful husband is donning a superman cape and is ready to play the role of do-it-all Daddy. We have made countless lists, held family meetings, hired a nanny, revised the family social calender and redecorated the nursery into a "study room" for mom. Basically, we are in "all systems go" mode. This blog will chronicle my adventures as a 41 year old married mother of five entering a large urban university and trying to juggle 25 credit hours this semester while keeping up with my mommy responsibilities, and keep it all in perspective. Feel free to comment, give suggestions, make me laugh or just follow along!

  1. Ever since we were kids, I have always known you as to be a "go-getter" and one who strives to be your best in whatever you do. I have always looked up to you and know that you will be successful in this endeavor just as you have in so many other things you have done up to this point. You are an inspiration and I look forward to reading your blogs. Go get 'em girl! Jill
