Hi there! My name is Robin and I am so excited to have been chosen as one of the Signature Mom bloggers. Since this is my first post here, I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself.
If you happened to read my original contest submission, you already know a little bit about me, but in case you didn’t get a chance to check it out, here’s everything you need to know. First and foremost, I am the mom of three boys. Being a mom is the absolutely the best things that’s ever happened to me and I am blessed to have them in my life. I have a three year old and six year old of my own and when I got re-married last October, I gained a bonus son, who’s 13 going on 14 next month. My 13 year old is currently in 8th grade, my six year old is in 1st grade and my three year old goes to preschool 2 mornings a week.
I am divorced from my kids father, but he is still a very big part of their lives, which I am very thankful for. I know that situation could have gone in a completely different direction and I feel so fortunate that it didn’t. I truly feel like I won the lottery when I met and married my second husband. He is a terrific step-father to my children and a better husband than I ever could have imagined. We were married in Las Vegas on 10/10/10….so he’d better never forget our anniversary!
In addition to working from home full time, I am active in my local PTA as well as participating as much as possible with my six year old sons Cub Scout Pack. I enjoy volunteering my time at the schools and truly love introducing my children to as many new experiences as I possibly can. Part of those new experiences come with traveling, and my family and I travel several times a year. This year we’ll be heading to New York City, New Hampshire, and Maine. Here’s a picture of all of us that was taken on a recent trip to Disney world:
As for personal interests, I am an amateur photographer, a huge Disney fan, an Amazing Race fanatic and a scrapbooker. I take hundreds upon hundreds of photos and carefully select my favorites and create scrapbooks full of our memories……when I can find the time that is.
I found out about the contest to become a contributor to Signature Moms through Twitter. As soon as I read about it, I headed right over to Signature Healthcare’s Facebook page to enter the contest! I was thrilled to get a chance to get more involved with my community. As a work at home mom, most of the people I connect with are other moms online, but few of them are from this area. Don’t get me wrong, I have “met” some amazing people online, but since I have very little face-to-face interaction, I was excited at the opportunity to connect with other local moms.
I love being able to share my stories and personal experience with everyone. I am very excited to share in this new adventure with the other seven Signature Moms and I am looking forward to hearing their stories and learning as much as I can from them!
I also write my own personal blog, so if you’re interested in reading more of our adventures, you can find me at http://massholemommy.com/.
