About Me

Hi, I’m Karen!  I’m a wife, friend, sister, daughter, professional, a self-proclaimed girly-girl, and, in my most surprising role ever — I’m a Mother of Boys — THREE BOYS!

I started this blog because being a Mother of Boys (M.O.B.) is quite an adventure, and one I truly wasn’t expecting!  I somehow always just pictured myself having daughters.  But here I am, a full-fledged M.O.B., and LOVING IT.   There’s a lot of unexpected, hilarious, heartwarming stuff that goes on as a M.O.B., and in parenting in general, and I’d love to connect with other parents to share stories, ideas, tips & tricks, and perspective.

I’m no expert, but I believe this joyful, challenging, hilarious, endearing and exhausting parenting adventure is worth sharing, so I’m thrilled that you’ve stopped by!

We’re all in this together, so I hope this makes you smile, stop and think, and cherish your own experiences, and I hope you’ll share your stories with me, too.

If you want to know more, here are 5 facts about me:

  • I’m colorblind!  Very rare for a woman . . . but it’s true.
  • I’m fluent in Spanish and am grateful to my first-ever Spanish teacher, a native speaker from Cuba, for instilling in me a love of language.
  • Hands down, MILK CHOCOLATE.  There’s nothing else better.
  • I could probably list at least 150 series or shows I’ve missed out on in the past 15 years, that I hope someday — maybe in retirement — I can catch up on.  People will still be talking about Big LIttle LIes and 24 in 25 years or so, right?
  • I wrote my first “book” when I was almost 3 years old — about Sesame Street’s Super-Grover crashing into a garbage can.  It had three words and a lot of pictures.  I’ve been writing ever since.

Anything else you want to know or hear about on the blog?  I’d love to hear from you!
