I am the Mom of two little monkeys. My son Jackson is 6 and my daughter Easton is 4. Life is never dull at the Monkee abode with these entertaining little monkees.
I work part-time as a Recreation Therapist working in High-Intensity Rehabilitation and Residential Services. It is such a completely rewarding profession, that lets me give back to the community that I live in. As a Recreation Therapist I am continually looking for great leisure activities, as I believe you cannot achieve total wellness without leisure. As a Recreation Therapist and a Mom, I am also looking for great leisure activities to do with my children & family. Do you have any suggestions?
I run a lot. I don’t enjoy running when I am in the midst of it but I still run because I love the feeling after I have finished. Maybe it’s the runner’s high that I get or maybe it’s because I pushed myself to the limit again but more than likely it is because I get to chat with my other Mommy running buddies. My best runs & races have occurred after minimal sleep due to the lil’ monkee children.
I am continuing my education, one course a semester, just to justify my Facebook addiction. It looks like I will finish my degree just in time to cash in on my retirement pension.
I have a husband, who I call The Man, who is continually making me laugh because sometimes it’s the only thing you can do! My Man’s joy is achieved by making me laugh in five-star restaurants and then watching me squirm as all eyes focus on me. I have a very distinctive laugh that many describe as infectious, not like the plague, more like it makes you smile.
I do more now than I did before I had kids. Who knew?
