Hi my name is Nate.


I am a married lady and a mother of three boys.   I have been a mom for 17 years.   My boys are ages 6, 15, and 17.

My job is caring for the kids, dog, home, husband, snake, yard, fish and everything else to keep the family up and running.

For over 25 years I  have worked with children.  Through the years my work  includes:  being a nanny, counselor, education consultant, teacher, director and now a mom.  Kids are my gig.

My blog is about my experience with motherhood and midlife.   I write to entertain, inspire, educate and help me through my midlife something.  It’s not crisis, but it’s something.

I was a full-time at home parent for 17 years.  I’ve recently re-entered into the workforce at an age just shy of 50.  I will let you know how it goes…

Thanks for stopping by I will talk with you soon.
