I am currently a full time stay at home mom. I have another 10 months to go before going back to being an engineer. We are currently residing in Bavaria, Germany. TH works in Munich, I work from home, and that is how we moved to Bayern.

We don’t really celebrate St. Patrick’s day in Germany, but that doesn’t really put a stop on us to make use of it and learn something. Spring is my favorite season of all.

Lil J has no choice but to follow me everyday where ever I go. And to be fair to him and not just do big J’s things, I signed up for a course called discovering the world of sensors from the local VHS (which is CC/ RC equivalent in Germany) The class is for children
Guess what??? TH was home at 3plus yesterday. And we crossed our path at the entrance of the garage. He didn’t even tell me that he was coming home early. Said he was not feeling well… hmm…. manflu manbaby alert! I did my usual thing. Pick up big J, sent A back home. Then we
