Getting My Fish In A Row

I had been tossing around the idea of starting a blog and had a few people confirm this for me, so here I am.

Now seems as good a time as I am going to find, supper is in the crockpot and I just sat my two-year-old down to Baby Einstein.

Can someone explain to me what is so captivating about these shows? Currently, it is just a sheep on the screen smelling the camera. Jerome is mesmerized.

I guess I should introduce myself, and my family, for those of you that might not know us.

These are my kids.

The baby is Benedict, who is seven months old in two days. He is my joy child, and in a lot of ways, he is the one who is teaching me to be the mother I want to be.

(Sorry firstborn, your mother was a bit of a frazzled emotional mess when you were born.)

Our oldest in Jerome, who just turned two at the beginning of October. He is such a boy in every aspect of the word, just give him something with wheels and he is good to go. He loves to work with his hands, gobbles up any opportunity to learn, and is a generally content little person, as well.

Then there is my husband, Tharin, electrician turned youth minister as of this year. I kind of enjoy the looks of surprise I get when people ask what my husband did before we moved, but also am getting used to his job being such a topic of discussion.

Hi, we are really, really Catholic.

There aren't as many pictures of me, of course, because I am usually the one behind the camera, you know, being #momthephotographer. But I was able to find one from the photoshoot a good friend of ours did for our family when Benedict was a few weeks old.

I would describe myself as a woman of many interests, probably too many, and in the age of the internet this translates into a lot of Pinterest and reading articles. I would also describe myself as a work in progress, as a Catholic especially, and always as a mom and person. Sometimes I am an artist, a writer, a photographer, but most of the time I am a laundromat, a maid, a chef, and a fellow playdoh roller.

There we are, the Fischer family, or as we are here on the blog: the Fishies in a Row.

Now the biggest dilemma I have faced while deciding to start a blog: the content I am going to write. I am by no means an expert in anything, really. The best I can do, and hopefully it will be helpful to others as helpful as it will be for me to have a record of it all, is share my insights and day-to-day life as a young mother of two, an aspiring Montessorian, and a woman trying to be a devout Catholic.

Here goes nothing, thank you so much for joining us!
