Once upon a time there was a girl. She got married to the most amazing guy and had three daughters in four years. She has a messy house, is proud when she cooks dinner two nights in a row, used to work at a jail as a registered nurse, and spends far too much money on amazon.com. This is the good, the bad, the ugly and the poopy... and everything else that life brings.
A few years ago, I began posting conversations on facebook that I had with my daughter Summer, or funny things that happened in my crazy life. They were deemed "Summerisms" by friends, and people started telling me how much they enjoyed them. I was told many times to write a book or start a blog, but I had never wanted to because I just didn't want the pressure... and I didn't think that anything I had to say was really that important or interesting enough for people to want to read. I know that right now my main issues are tantrums, potty training and poop explosions... but before I know it I will have three teenage girls (which is pretty much the scariest thing I can imagine). Older people stop me while I'm out and about and tell me to enjoy every moment when they are young because it will fly by. I'm not going to say I will enjoy every moment. I will attempt handle it with humor and as much patience as I have that day, write about it, then look back and laugh hysterically at the madness. So, my main reason in doing this is to record my memories. My life is pure chaos, I'm a disaster, my husband is a saint, my girls are adorable... and I'm doing the best that I can.
