WHAT MESS FOR LESS IS ALL ABOUT
I started Mess For Less in 2011 because I knew there had to be other moms like me out there. Moms who wanted to entertain and educate their children while spending quality time with them. That is me most of the time. Some of the time I want them to be involved in an activity because I need 30 minutes to get dinner on the table, clean, or hide out in the bathroom with a People magazine. Whichever kind of mom you are, you will find something that will help you on Mess For Less.
As my children have gotten older, I have posted more and more family friendly recipes since I spend a majority of my time cooking. I have always wanted to make moms lives easier and my recipes do that. No fancy ingredients or cooking methods. Just straight forward comfort food that the whole family will love.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
I was a teacher for close to 10 years before having my kids. I taught Preschool, Kindergarten, First and Fourth grade. You would think this prepared me for raising 3 kids. Not so much. Turns out, other people's kids listen to me a lot more than my own. Plus, just when they were getting annoying (yes, teachers occasionally think students are annoying) their parents would come and pick them up. No one picks my kids up. There is nowhere to escape - except maybe the bathroom.
I got my Masters in Early Childhood Education so I do know a bit about teaching and learning. But there is no degree that could have prepared me for having 3 kids in 18 months (twins + 1 for those keeping score). Those kids are now tweens and though lots of days they drive me crazy, there are those occasional moments of peace and bliss thrown in that keep me from heading for the hills. The other thing that keeps me from going out for milk and never returning is my awesome husband. He is all the good stuff a husband and person should be.
