I’m Karlee. I love to write and to sing, although until relatively recently I kept my creative side to myself. These days my hubby and my kids get to hear me sing, and you are unlucky enough to delve into my brain through my writing. I have this blog (the mother experiment), which journals my days learning to be a mum and wife. To see my first post explaining why I decided to start a blog click here.
My hobbies include, um, I’m a stay at home mum who’s terrible at cleaning so I’m not real sure about my hobbies anymore except keeping up with this blog, although I love to play music (french horn, cornet, piano) when I get a chance and spend time relaxing with my little family. I really enjoy painting but I don’t start unless I have a few hours uninterupted because I get lost in it and dragging myself back to reality can be difficult.
Hubby’s name is Corey. He is tall, has dark hair, his eyes tend to change colour like a mood ring and he’s handsome (ofcourse I have to say that). His hobbies include playing computer games, eating chocolate, tickling Alexis and spoiling me. We met in highschool, started dating at 16, engaged by 19, married at 21, and had our baby girl at 22. He is a great drummer but needs to make more time for it. He is far too good for me, most of the time, although I could never tell him that.
My daughter Alexis is nearly 2 years old and is blonde with dark eyes and is absolutely adorable. Her hobbies include making a mess by pulling things out of where they should be, making a mess with food and drink and making a mess by trying to help me with the housework. Other hobbies include reading stories, watching the wiggles, playschool and/or sesame street, playing playdoh, running around outside, and playing chasey. Her favourite thing to do is to hold her baby brother. She is very compassionate, kind, loving and a very good kisser. She is starting to learn to “sing” and dances around in circles.
William is almost 4 months old. He is amazing. He loves company but also loves his space. When we put him on the floor he can shimmy across the floor on his back by digging his heels in, lifting his bottom up and “ping”ing himself along. He adores his sister. He loves his daddy. He snuggles in tight. He’s a boob fiend and a rather large bub but we love him to bits just the way he is.
As I am a Christian I would like to say that I live my life trying to be more like Jesus Christ and so God directs our days. Unfortunately this isn’t always the case as I have a terrible habit of trying to control my own life (and often those around me) even though I know that God could do a better job. I am trying to learn though, so bear with me.
