About Erin

NYE 2012
Right??

Updated August 2013

Here is a good entry that tells a lot about me.

I’m Erin, the author of this here little blog. I started this blog with the intent of keeping track of my pregnancy. Then I decided to keep up with it as  Evan began to grow so we would have a place to keep all our memories.
But the blog turned into something more for me.  It turned into more than just a place to share. It turned into a place to process. A place to put things out there that I didn’t even realize needed “putting out there.” Since becoming a mother, I have relied much on those who have gone before me to help me along this rocky, beautiful path.  I can only pray that our stories, obstacles, triumphs, and laughs may shed some light into someone else’s darkness one day.

I feel a little silly doing an About Me section but I know that it is on the first things I read on a new blog so here goes: 

Evan’s birthday May 2013

  •  I’m 35 and I don’t really have any issues with it. I love birthdays, probably a little too much for someone my age. 
  • California-one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen.
  •  I currently am a stay at home mom with my son, Evan.  I am going back to work soon and have conflicting feelings about it.  I taught for 11 years before going out on maternity leave with Evan.  I LOVE teaching. Being a teacher is part of who I am.  But of course, I am worried about how Evan will do with new caregivers.  (Um, let’s be honest, he’ll be fine. It’s me you have to worry about.)

  • I’m clumsy and have extremely weak ankles. I have been known to twist my ankle standing still. Not kidding. And in case you were wondering? Not fun.
  • My husband and I met on Match.Com.  I recall a day when you couldn’t admit that. But now it is not a big deal at all. Thank goodness we are over that stigma, people!
  • I’m a wedding singer. Let me know if you need an event singer (wedding, funeral, etc), I love doing it.
  • I think that counseling/therapy is a beautiful and necessary thing. I have said many times that I believe you should be able to give gift certificates for sessions. Who wouldn’t benefit from talking to someone about your life who is completely unbiased?? I wish there wasn’t such a stigma with it. There is no stigma to using the gym to improve your physical health, so why should there be one that involves improving your mental well being?
  •  I admit I have an issue with clutter. I make organized piles. I am really good at organizing these piles. 
  • If you get a second, learn all about Williams Syndrome and teach someone else about it too.  It’s really the only way to get awareness out there and continue to get more programming and supports available to individuals and their families. 
    Doing what I love.

    Hi, I’m Florencia. Sorry if my English is not really good, I’m Argentinian (Speak Spanish)living in Scotland. I came here through the WS group on FB. I just read this introduction and I loved it. I used to have a blog too. I stopped writing when I found out about my girl (Last September), that wasn’t the main reason I was already thinking about stoping and suddenly I needed to be with my closest friends and family instead writing for people that I didn’t know. Anyway just I wanted to tell you that I loved this, I would keep reading it. Nice to meet you and your son reminds me a lot to my girl, she is 22 months old. Love . F
