It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Kelly of Embracing the Craziness.  Kelly’s blog chronicles her “travels” as a mother, “learning to let go, embrace the craziness and just have fun”.  Kelly has been blogging for as long as I have, (which is awhile) and has been a long time SITStah.  She suffered with infertility and reading her story might give others battling with the same thing hope!

When and why did you start blogging?
I started blogging at “The Craziness We Call Life” in 2006.  I blogged as a way to journal my crazy life and to keep family that lived far away up to date.

What do you get out of blogging?
I get a lot of enjoyment from blogging and have met a lot of great people.  I also think my two girls will love seeing their childhood through my eyes when they are older.  I would love to help others with infertility and depression through my blog.

Do you worry about security issues with your children on your blog?
I do worry about security when blogging and my original blog became private after having it public for a few years.  I began using “pen names” for my family  and it makes me feel safer.

Where do you see your blog in 5 years?
In five years I will have a pre-teen on my hands and I guess a tween?  Let’s hope I stay out of the loony bin long enough to enjoy my girls then!  😉

If you could have one day to yourself, what would you do?
I would love to shop and have no one talk to me.  I love my girls more than life itself but I could really use a day off.

    I hear ya about shopping and having no one talk to me! It’s never a dull moment around here and as long as someone is awake, someone is talking! It’s nice to have some silent time! Your girls are gorgeous. I love their dresses! Enjoy your day!

    Congratulations on getting a featured blogger spot! And I love your story, and thankful you’re telling it. We need more hopeful stories in the infertility community. IVF can be a rough road!

    That’s what I do with my day off too! It’s just so nice having that little bit of time to myself. I’m also thinking of switching to pen names for my family.
