What is Mad Mom on a Mission??

I'm that girl that thinks she can do it all. In the thick of finishing up my Bachelor's degree, I decided it would be a good time to buy a house with my new husband. Then a few months later- oops! Time for baby #1. Well, I don't mean Oops. Baby was what I call a "planned surprise." There was about a week when we thought - "Hey it'd be nice to have a baby." Well apparently that's all it takes!

My Baby is a remarkable little man. He was 11 pounds at birth so he has a bit of an advantage to other babies his age. His smile lights up my life and I can't wait to see what kind of crazy experiences he brings me and my husband.

So, after the baby was born, I went back and am finishing up my bachelor's degree. I'm what people refer to as a "non-traditional student." Sitting in lecture halls and being with peers of my own age in college just wasn't my thing. After the strong recommendation from my former boss, I took the reluctant plunge to enroll at The University of Phoenix. That statement is usually followed by "oh... online college...?" Not exactly. UoP actually has campuses! But you would never know it because all they advertise (and they advertise a LOT) is for online classes. Much to my surprise I actually love it. I'd like to call out all the nay-sayers right now and tell them - don't knock it till you try it. Sure it's not for everyone, but for people like me who procrastinate on assignments and a myriad of other excuses of why I hate school, it's the perfect solution. One night a week...

"So," you ask, "what's with the title 'Mad Mom on a Mission?" Well, I lead a pretty hectic (or mad) life. I make it my mission to better myself for my family everyday. This blog will document my trials and tribulations of being a young twenty-something trying to fit in both worlds - the other twenty-somethings and reality/parenthood.
