Hi. Thanks for taking a moment to read my blog. Just a little introduction ~ I'm a mom of five loud, active, rowdy and destructive boys and one dog and am married to a career firefighter. I've been freelance writing for 8 years. I enjoy writing about people, places, events and also about my crazy life as a mom. When I hear the song "Livin' La Vida Loca" that Ricky Martin released a few years back about the crazy life of a woman making the rounds of the nightclubs, it makes me laugh. I think to myself...if that's considered crazy, stick her in a house with mounds of laundry, a sink full of dishes, a sick kid, a couple bickering boys who won't stop wrestling, dinner boiling over on the stove and SpongeBob's 4th continuous episode blaring on the television and she can see what crazy REALLY is! However, as nuts as it is at times, being a mom has got to be the most wonderful role on earth. I write about motherhood in my "Mom Moments" column that runs every other Sunday in the Northwest Indiana Times (check it out at So, I'll plan on writing a little on this blog of the moments of motherhood that happen in between column deadlines. And since one of my favorite things to do is travel and write about it, I'll fill you on some cool spots you might want to visit on your next family trip. Hugs, Carrie
