{ About Us }

Wife hat, Mom hat is about the {many} different aspects of motherhood! My blog got it's name during a crazy year in our family life when my husband was on active duty and I was home with my toddler, foreign exchange student, while being pregnant, and a grad school student ALL AT ONCE! It was a super crazy, but super fun time! 

And now, I am "just" a mommy to two little kiddos and working on mastering all of the "hats" required for the job! My blog is a lot about our family, mostly the kids, and also includes posts about things I love and find helpful during this journey of motherhood! 

{Spring 2012: I am actually now enrolled as a full time grad student so things are back to crazy! But, it's good. We're making it work and it's going really well!}
