I am loving these blogger spotlights! Today's blogger is special, mainly because I've known her for a long time! Mychal and I went to high school together (GO WARRIORS!), dare I say were in the Marching Band together (TMI?), and though we lost tough after she graduated, we now live, quite literally, 3 minutes from each other. Random, right? It's been fun to reconnect with Mychal. I love her blog because it's real, and she tells it like it is!
Kennett Square, PA
I have two boys that continue to drive me crazy day after day. At 3 and 5 they have me saying things I never thought I'd say and doing things I never thought I'd do. I am their mother and their referee.
Favorite Ice Cream Flavor?
That changes depending on my mood, but I prefer flavors with chunks of cookie in them. My usual suspects are cookies and cream, mint chocolate chip, and chocolate chip cookie dough, but I have been known to branch out when something strikes my fancy.
Favorite BAD band (boy bands, one hit wonder, etc)
I don't really have a favorite bad band per say, it's more favorite bad songs. Ice Ice Baby anyone?
Best place you've ever vacationed?
Our honeymoon cruse to the Caribbean was probably the best vacation I've ever had, but Maui will always hold a special place in my heart. I've been there probably more than 10 times and could never get tired of it.
How long have you been blogging?
I've been blogging a little more than two years, although not as regularly as I would like. I'm trying to work on that though.
Why did you choose your blog's name/theme?
I chose the name, My Life In Mommyland because I wanted to tell my story. I'm living here in Mommyland, stumbling through each day and this is my life. It's a life I never thought I would have since I'm not really a huge fan of kids and all.
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging as a form of therapy. My kids do some crazy things and I wanted to share them with the rest of the world. My thought was that if I can make one mother feel less alone out there I'd be doing some good in the world. Before blogging I felt so isolated, I needed to reach out to other mothers and see that their problems are the same as my own.
What are you 3 favorite blog posts?
I like this post because it was the first time I really shared what my husband does. He doesn't have a typical job, in fact there aren't many who do what he does. http://mylifeinmommyland.com/2011/07/my-name-is-mychal-and-im-a-turf-wife/
My little guy, Logan has always been a bold child. This post is from two years ago and it still makes me laugh to think back on that day. http://mylifeinmommyland.com/2009/10/dont-leave-your-child-unattended-even-for-a-second/
One of my more recent posts about Cameron starting Kindergarten. I still can't believe how fast the time has gone. http://mylifeinmommyland.com/2011/09/kindergarten-adventures-part-1/
Intrigued about what Mychal's husband does? Or perhaps the mishaps her son had on the bus during his first day of kindergarten? Head over to My Life in Mommyland and read more!
