I’m Michelle, and I am very excited to have been selected as an official PTPA BLOGOHOLIC!
At the moment I am feeling a lot like the new kid on the first day of school…..so many exciting things to see here, lots of new faces, and systems & policies to learn, but I know that soon enough I will fall into the groove, and feel right at home here in the PTPA community.
Who am I and what do I hope to bring to “Parent Tested Parent Approved”?
I am a wife (my husband and I were married in 2000) and I am a mother (our daughter was born in 2003 and our son in 2008).
After 8.5 years of being a stay at home momma, I have just recently ventured back into the corporate world and for 3 years I have run my own business as an Independent Consultant with Passion Parties.
During those years at home with my children I learned that the secret to survival was to build a network of other mothers.
These women became the people that I turned to for everything. If I needed to brag about a “poopie in the potty”, they were there to cheer with me. If I found a mysterious rash on my baby, they were there to advise on remedies. And if I was just having one of those days when I felt like I was making all of the wrong mommy-choices, they were there to pour a glass of wine and let me cry on their shoulder.
That support, advice and understanding is something that I will never forget, and I am very excited to now be a part of PTPA, an online community that shares the same support, advice and understanding.
Many of my blogs will be from a more “Intimate” viewpoint. As a Passion Parties consultant I have seen firsthand that so many women are experiencing the same struggles, frustrations and guilt that I often feel.
As women, wives and mothers, we juggle piles of laundry, emails, carpooling kids, extra-curricular actives, blah blah blah, and then at the end of the night, are supposed to unleash our inner VIXEN.
I am committed to keeping the Passion alive in my marriage, and as I work away at it (stumbling a few times along the way) I will share with you my findings, thoughts and tips. I assure you, my posts will not be X-rated, but will definitely deal with a more “adult” viewpoint in many cases.
I look forward to sharing with all of you, and hope to get to know who YOU are via comments and emails.
Have a Passionate Day!
