As far back as I can remember I have loved anything associated with language; it is amazing to me.  Going to college and subsequently working in my chosen career gave me tons of opportunity to use this interest.  Then I became a stay-at-home mom.  While I love it and wouldn't change that decision, I realized that an important piece of me was being starved.  This blog is a way to couple my love of communication with some other passions, desires, and dreams I have--the chief of these being the insane love I have for my children. 

As any parent knows, love for your children produces worry.  One of my biggest concerns is helping cultivate their minds, teaching them to be independent, and instilling a desire to learn and be curious.  Because of that I am constantly searching for and thinking of ways to encourage these traits through play and other resources.  I so desperately want them to experience life and enjoy their childhood unattached to an electronic device.  I think there are probably a lot of parents who feel the same way.

So, two loves in my life have come together to produce this blog.  It is my hope that you can peruse the contents and find some interesting and helpful things to assist you in raising your little wild(ish) ones!
