About Kelly and All these Kids

I'm Kelly.

Nice to meet you.
This is my blog.

I started it in the summer of 2014 as an excuse to write creatively again. Writing has always been a passion of mine and one that has been on the back burner since having kids. I would read other parenting blogs on Facebook and think, I could do that! So finally, one day I did.

I had to Google, How to start a blog, because honestly, I'm kind of clueless when it comes to technology. I'm not really sure when that happened, because I swear just yesterday I was in my 20s and checking out this new fangled thing called you tube and I was totally in the know.

Today I'm in my 30s and a Mom of 4.

Before kids, I had a whole slew of different jobs. I worked for a runaway teen crisis hotline. I worked at a Subway, a call center, one of those cash loan places, as a waitress, retail stores and an apartment complex. I sucked at most of those jobs. Most recently before kids I worked for a credit union.

I went to college for awhile, but never finished my degree. I wanted a degree in English. So I could be a writer. Eh, and here we are.

After kids, I worked part time for awhile, then had a in home daycare for awhile, now I'm a stay at home Mom. For a couple of reasons, the main one being that we have 4 kids and I would not make enough money to cover day care costs. Also, being a mom is the first time I've ever been proud of my work. The first time I've ever felt like I'm doing a good job. I mean, there are days of course when I feel like I'm fucking everything up, but overall, I must being doing something right, because my kiddos are pretty awesome.

I have two boys, Gus and Bun Bun, and two girls, Lala and Edie.

And of course there's my husband, Brad. Yes, he's basically one of the kids sometimes but he's actually an awesome dad and husband. He is completely in charge of bath time, he changes diapers, works full time to support us and has lots of fatherly words of wisdom for the kids.

I love this man
