Hello to all y’all,

This blog is created with the intend to encourage other moms in this journey called motherhood. A place of info, humor, and country wisdom.

There will be a lot of boy related post’s, due to the fact that I am a mom to 3 boys. I plan to write on household corner-cutting, boy activities, sewing projects, & of course my personal opinion on what ever comes to me.

I am a creative, type B, work from home, wife and mother of three boys. Sewing and creating items from second hand denim are my main hobby.  Shopping at 2nd hand stores are also a favorite pastime of mine, especially when I can score items to resell!

I am a bit of a Jill of all trades… there are not many things I have not done!

I am the oldest of 11 children. This created opportunity to learn to do a lot of unique things.

Such as :

running chainsaws,

driving tractors,

fixing small engines,

stacking hay,

helping with maple season,

cooking for a crowd,

working in a large garden,

helping in greenhouses,

canning, milking goats,

helping my dad in his electric & plumbing business,

doing laundry,

taking care of babies,

helped with building a house,

teaching younger siblings to read.

As a teen/ young adult, I worked at an produce auction, cleaned high end houses, milked at a couple dairies as a relief milker, babysat, and helped care for an elderly neighbor.

After meeting my husband and getting married in 2001, I began life as a homemaker and worked from home, babysat, sold Tupperware, did custom sewing and ran my own mini garden center. Since our boys came along, we also have a bit of a farmstead going on here with our goats & Chickens!

My daily life at this stage of the journey revolves around my husband’s busy work schedule, housework, our boys’ school schedule, and my part-time teaching at our private school. Cooking also takes up a bit of my time, these boys of mine know how to eat hardy!

I enjoy my crazy life for the most part and look forward to the new challenges that await! I still have a few things on my bucket list tho, Just give me time!!

BTW, My name is Dory, Thank you for reading my blog and I look forward to meeting you as we walk this parenting journey!

A bit of real life!
