Introducing Missy!

Hi my friends! I am Missy. I was born and raised in California, right about where Google and Apple have set up shop. When I was a teenager we had to pick up and relocate all the way across the country to the frozen tundra that is the Northeast. It was either that or get a passport and learn to speak Taiwanese. It actually turns out that I enjoy the snow. The move also led me to my husband and two beautiful children, for which I am constantly incredibly grateful.

When I’m not harassing my eldest about homework and tooth-brushing or babbling with and feeding my squishball, I love to make crafts. Some of which I half-ass in the interest of keeping my hands busy, others I agonize over to perfection.

In all honesty, I like to get things *just right*. I like to try new endeavors and see what happens. I am also lazy if I can get away with it. So my specialty is doing really neat things, really well, with minimal effort because let’s be real, here; if you want to do something cool and have it work in real life, you need to be able to do it quick and painlessly. Probably also with at least one child begging for attention.

I can’t wait to get this project started with all my dearly loved fellow Mama Weasels here on A Dash of Mama. I just know this is going to be great!

Please Allow Me to Introduce Myself

Hi! I am Roro. I was born and raised about an hour outside of beautiful Philadelphia, PA and now reside on the sunny beaches of Florida. I count that move as the best decision of my life. Besides getting me away from the snow, it led to meeting my husband, who was a single father of 4 when I met him. I adopted his 2 youngest girls, and we have been blessed with another daughter and a son together. Our 4 kids range from newbie to college aged, and always keep us on our toes. They are my greatest pride and joy.

Besides my little darlings, some of my favorite things include: soaking up rays on the beach, camping, sports (especially the Philly teams), listening to music, and gardening. My contributions to A Dash of Mama will include simple projects to do with the babes, going on adventures with the babes, and plenty of outtakes.

I think my favorite part of this project is working with this group of ladies I love and am so glad to have met. The Weasel family has become an extension of my own family, and really, truly, some of my very best friends. I love how diverse of a group we are, yet we can all relate to each other, learn from each other, and grow with each other.

Please be sure to leave me a comment. I’d like to meet our readers!

A Short History of the “Weasels”:

Our group of friends met on a popular baby-themed forum. We were all expecting new bundles of joy around the same time. From a forum of more than 20,000 users, a small group of about 20 of us grew closer, and began to lean on each other as real friends. Soon, we found ourselves becoming friends on other social media sites. From there, we’ve expanded to real-life meetings and this new endeavor, on A Dash of Mama the blog, and the soon-to-launch youTube channel.
