*current bio below* 🙂

So you’ve clicked on this link you’re obviously interested in more about yours truly. I will try not to disappoint.

I am the wife of the creator and founder of  www.atruereview.net, also known as the Bycemaster. We have three lovable, adorable, crazy children. Grant is 4 and a half (that half is important for…me…umm…him), Jena is 3 (finally!) and Jacob is over 18 months, but not 2 yet, don’t ask for more, it hurts my head. If that doesn’t give you an idea of the regular state of our house and my sanity, go read a few posts, you’ll get a good idea. My mantra right now is “Children grow, enjoy what you can while it lasts.” It helps me keep my sanity when they are stepping on every nerve I have and screaming in my ear on top of it all. I tend to use this blog as therapy. So I may vent occasionally…just a little. Feel free to commiserate when I do.

The point of this blog is to make them all independently famous so they can be set up with their own incomes and put themselves through college, in their own apartment, not in my house. Bycemaster and I can then sell the house and travel the world. I’m sure the kids will be fine.


I cam here to update this, and I couldn’t erase the above. It makes me smile to remember the ‘crazy years.’ We have a new breed of crazy now! I am currently mothering and homeschooling a 9, 7, and 6 year old as well as nannying (new word!) a 4 year and adopting a baby! Soon, we really hope it will be soon!

The blog has little bits of our crazy life splattered all around. Allergy friendly and healthyish (new word numero dos!) recipes as we have been doing the gluten/dairy/soy free thing now for four years for our oldest. Bits of homeschooling advice and pleas for help! Book reviews, because I can’t help myself. I love books and good ones must be talked about. As well as our journey through the adoption process.

It’s my life, it’s now or never, I ain’t gonna live forever, I just want to live while I’m alive.

Yes, I did just reference a Bon Jovi song, but would you check out the cell phone in beginning of that video…
