Welcome to Dragon Mama
Motherhood requires strength, the type of strength possesed by a mythological creature, standing tall guarding her young and teaching them to let their heart soar. (And, I wouldn't be surprised if my kids said I breathed fire a time or two.) I don't claim to be a flawless or fearless mother, nor do I have any definitive answers to childhood problems. I don't claim to know whether one parenting style is superior to another. I just strive everyday to make sure my kids know they are special and they are loved. Loved infinitely, unconditionally and forever. Dragon Mama focuses on the ways I show love to my kids, striving to keep them happy and healthy. Of course, I have some tips and tricks I've learned from mommying my 3 dragons.
THE STORY BEHIND THE BLOG
When I imagined being a mother, I pictured setting up tea parties and fluffing up glittery princess dresses. Fastforward to reality. There are no delicate doilies underneath porcelain cups or sparkly tiaras atop bouncy curls. In fact, I don't buy anything breakable. In our house, there are dinosaur roars, superheros capes, jeans with holes in the knees, and perpetual roughhousing. I have three little boys, or dragons, as my husband calls them. And, I couldn't be happier to be their Dragon Mama. This blog is about how I keep my sweet firey wild ones happy and healthy, while trying to keep my sanity. And just because I have active, athletic warriors don't think there isn't baking, decorating and dancing.
I am 38 years old. I have been married 10 years and am a mother of 3 boys ages 8, 6 and 3. My comfort show is Gilmore Girls (Team Logan!) I love ice cream, Starbucks, and Nicholas Sparks books.
I chose to be a mostly stay at home mom (working some from home) years ago, but recently, the pandemic threw me into a literal stay at home ALL THE TIME mother AND zoom school supervisor.
Even though I am a lawyer, I don't find my education wasted at home. In Iaw school, I Iearned the importance of relentless preparation and thorough research. This means my workaholic focus is on my dragons right now.
So when I write a blog entry, you know I've scoured resources and imagined all the different ways to build a box fort, decorate a bicycle for the Fourth of July or create a dessert with hidden veggies. (Disclaimer: this doesn't mean my execution will always pan out. I'll be sure to share my failures too!)
