This will be my first year joining the party! When I truly started blogging regularly at the end of last summer I struggled with building a readership. My limited time to network has made it difficult, but now that Daddy Dearest works from home and doesn’t have 2 jobs, I am gonna get on it! LOL
For new readers, here is a little about me:
Hi! I’m Ryan, also known as Ry, Ry-Ry, Shelley, Rockstar(a high school nickname that accompanies my BFF’s nickname Pornstar, silly boys thinking we didn’t know they called us that…oh and my BFF was sweet and innocent and def not in porn, lol) Babe and of course Mommy. I’m coming up on my 30th birthday this summer and I reside in the ever temperamental Midwest USA.
I am a long time unpublished writer and published poet. The whirlwind of college years and babies got me away from writing seriously. I got a ‘grown-up’ job in Corp America where I was used and abused for 8 long years as I tried to be ‘responsible’. Both of my daughters, Gillian (8) and Braeleigh (4), were born during these years of single mom-dom and 60-80 hour work-weeks.
After many complications during my pregnancy with my son Dominik (1), I realized how much I had neglected my daughters. My fiancee and I decided that it was time for me to hang up my ‘working mom’ hat for awhile. It was a good thing we planned for that because my son was born premature leaving me with no choice but to stay home with him.
And thus was born My Misadventures of Stay-At-Mommyhood….so read and enjoy!
