Featured Blog: Frogs, Snails and Fairytales

Hello blogging friends! I am Nicole over at Frogs, Snails, and Fairytales. I started this blog to give family who lived far away, a way to feel involved with our lives.

We are a family of five! Tim, my fiance, and I have been together 9 years. It will be 10 in October. We met when I was a Freshman in high school, and he was a Sophomore. We met on line through AOL instant messenger, because apparently that was the thing to do back then. It was a coincidence that we went to the same high school. We started to date shortly after that.

I became a mom in 2007, at the age of 19, with the birth of my first son Timothy. In 2008, 17 months after having Timothy, I gave birth to my second son Mason. And wouldn't you know it 20 months later in 2010, I gave birth to my daughter, finally!

Timothy James

Mason Paul

Taylor Ann

The crazy thing is I was on birth control with ALL THREE kids! The boys I was on the pill (although, I have to be honest, not sure they were taken 100% perfectly), and Taylor, my daughter, I had the Mirena IUD in. I had it removed the day after I found out I was pregnant at 7 weeks. I have the Mirena IUD again. I am just praying it works this time, if I can get past her 1st birthday, it will be the longest I have went without getting pregnant again.

I use my space as a place to reflect, to get feelings out, and to express myself. I also use it as a place to share my children with you, our lives, my life as a stay at home mom. There will be tears, laughter, stuggles, and successes as I nagivate on my journey as a young mom to three little ones.

I sure hope you can make it by my little space in bloggy land, and maybe even sit and stay awhile. I would love for you all to share this journey with us.

Such cute children!, although that is crazy, and a little scary, that you were on birth control the whole time! I guess they were just meant to come into your lives :)
