I’m a Bloggy Mom!

Today Eddie is at daycare.  Yes, two of us are home this summer and in order to get the house cleaned and get any REAL stuff done around here, we still send Eddie to Miss Amy.  He loves it because he loves Miss Amy and he loves his friends.  They are more fun than we are, apparently.

Anyway, Cort and I will be cleaning and organizing and finding stuff for our BIG garage sale that we are having on August 14 to help bring Eddie’s cousin(s) home from Ethiopia.

I will also be making a lemon cake for a get together tonight.  I am being all kinds of domestic today.

Anyway, while I am all busy, you can go read a post I wrote for a Back to School series on Tiffany’s blog, A Bloggy Mom.  Lots of my twitter friends helped me decide what to write about…and I think they will like the results.  At least I hope so.

So, you go read.  Let me know what you think.  I am going to go get elbow-deep in lemon curd.

Also, please don’t forget that tomorrow night at 6pm EST, the online auction to support my sister-in-law and brother-in-law’s adoption goes live here.  There are LOTS of great items to bid on!  You’ll want to check it out!

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. Daycare is good for them! Love that your babe enjoys it as much as mine does.

  2. Oh, excuse me, I'm sorry. Why is it that I have been chatting it up with you on twitter yet haven't bothered to check out your blog. I'm an idiot, obviously. So here I am marveling at your gorgeous family. Love it!

  3. Yeah, sometimes ya just gotta do it to get stuff done.

    I think it's freaking awesome what you're doing!! It'll be a fantasic day for a garage sale because it's Chunky's birthday 😉 PS. I totally get that not being able to do a SINGLE THING. I don't know how stay at home moms do it!!

    ok, you are brilliant. it's official. my husband and i just had a long convo moaning & groaning about how much we need to get done & how we just can't finish it all during naptime/after bedtime.
    Time to call the nanny!!! Why didn't i think of this before?!
