About the Mommies


Hi!  My name is Tara.  This is a site in which this (new) mommy, along with others, celebrates, vents, shares wisdom and generally reports on her attempts at becoming qualified for her new job title–“domestic diva!”

I am a stay-at-home working mom who formerly taught for ten years in elementary schools.  I have two young children for whom I desire to be a great mother.  (Don’t we all!)  When I am not on spit-up duty, I love to decorate for the seasons and holidays, create small papercrafts and other “prizes” for friends and family, and entertain.  I really wish that I had taken cooking and cleaning classes while getting my degrees…Most of the time being domestic is a greater challenge than any exam I ever took in college!

blog-photoHello!  I am Susan.  I am a mommy of two who works outside the house with two jobs.  My full time position is a supervisor in a large call center and my other job is owner of Seize the Day Parties.  I love to create things, especially memories for my children.  My son Thomas, 5, and my daughter Anna, 3, are so unique that I am marveled by them every day.  I have a very supportive husband who is a SAHD–stay at home dad (he has his own blog!)  I live in a small town in Oregon still trying to find my course in life.

Tara and I have been friends since high school (worked on the school newspaper) and now enjoy the bond of motherhood together.  I jumped at the chance to work on another project with her and focusing on the things we do daily seemed like a perfect idea.  I hope you enjoy our observations, crafts, complaints (sometimes), and draw inspiration from it, as we do from each other.
