WHO AM I?
I am a mother and teacher from the Bronx, NY. I’m a single mom of 2 ninja babies by day. Wine connoisseur (AKA alchi) by night. Grew up in the hood, but I’m far from hood. Smart enough to have a 4.0 in grad school but dumb enough to have student loans. Raunchily funny. Occasional potty-mouth. Sarcastic to the core. 24/7 Jesus lover. Beautiful from the inside out. And of course, humble… But still pretty darn awesome (if I do say so myself).
WHY SASS, LAUGHS, AND MAYHEM?
The Sass and Laughs refers to my daughters (which based on their personalities is completely fitting). Born January and December of 2009, they are my little “Irish twins” and total opposites.
The Mayhem is me balancing single motherhood while being a full-time special education teacher and navigating whatever life throws my way.
She is my little princess. In her world everything must be done with a model pose!
She is my tomboy. Totally rough around the edges, but a big mush on the inside.
WHAT IS THE GOAL OF THIS BLOG?
I am determined to be the best possible me. Not by competing, but by learning and growing into the woman, mother, and teacher God is leading me to be. I’m using this blog to track my progress and hopefully provide encouragement to other people. This is a single mom’s blog and I will talk about my stories and my struggles.
