Hi!  My name is Katrece. I am a mom to an amazing little boy who has taught me so much in such a short period of time. I am sure some of you know what I am talking about. LOL!

Here are a just few of those lessons:

Lessons Learned 

Lesson 1: There is only one go to song. 

          Now sing it with me.  The wheels on the bus goes round and round … yes we have it on repeat.

Lesson 2: Don’t always follow the same path.

          “This way, this way” as he points to the right as we are driving along.

Lesson 3: That same old two step will not work when dancing.

          Activate your inner dance machine.  “Roll your arms like this. Faster, faster”.

Believe me, I have really learned a lot. I know this is just the tip of the iceberg. So I thought, why not share our journey?

So one day, I decided to become a blogger. But it took me a long time to get the ball rolling.  I wanted it to be perfect. So I researched and researched, but it soon became information overload.

So, I decided to just take the leap.  I focused on coming up with a name for the blog.  I finally chose the name “Behind the Blossom”.  I think it represents both of us.

‘Cause the truth is, not only is my son in the stage of development, but I am too.

“Being a mother is learning about the strengths you didn’t know you had and deals with fears you didn’t know existed.”  Linda Wooten

So I have chosen to explore my creative side and dare to try  with my son in tow.

“There is no way to be a perfect mother but a million ways to be a good one.”  Jill Churchill

I am pledging to color outside the lines and be perfectly fine with it.

I am inviting you to join me as I explore trying new kid-friendly activities, home organization tricks, money saving tips, and this thing called blogging.
