10 Fun Facts About Myself, My Parenting & My Marriage

Last month I shared 25 facts and things of interest about my two older kids — hoping for you to get to know them a little bit more. They are pretty adorable and quirky and I am happy I was able to share more randomness about them with you.

This month, I wanted to share more about me — random things that kind of make me who I am. Share some of the stronger parenting beliefs I have and a bit more about the marriage that is the foundation of what keeps our family happy.

Click through to learn 10 random fun facts about myself, my parenting and my marriage:

    Like, big time. I understand that some don't want to bed-share, but I really do believe families should room share for at least the first 6 months. We still bedshare with our 3 year old (& yes, my husband and I still have an active intimate life).
