My name is Stephanie and I live in Wisconsin with my husband, my cat, and two small kids. I work full time, not for pleasure or fulfillment, but to pay my bills…barely.
I mention that because when I was looking to the mommybloggers for some solidarity, I discovered that they’re all either upper-middle-class (or at least solidly MIDDLE-middle-class), or stay-at-home moms, or both. Where were all the blogs for mommies like me? Oh that’s right, we’re all busy working and trying to make everything from scratch to save some much-needed cash while playing single mom cause our husband has to work nights and weekends. Well, that and playing around on the internet.
StephiCakes is a name that my grandmother bestowed on me. Embarrassingly when I was school-aged; endearingly when I grew up and learned that being embarrassed by your grandma is Not. Cool! The shortened nickname version of this nickname is Cakesy. People actually call me this.
I decided to blog because my best friend told me to. Honestly. And also, I think it will be a good way to keep track of my life during this precious time (yes that was cheesy, there will be some cheese here) in the lives of my offspring. Said offspring are: Lorelai (Lola) born in November 2008, and Corbin born in November 2011. Someday I hope to have a baby when it’s warm out. 🙂
Here is a post where I answered a bunch of questions about myself.
