So what is Acting Balanced?
It’s a blog about being me – sometimes mouthy, opinionated and always right… actually it’s partly that and partly a little slice of family history, current issues and just plain fun! When I blog, I often talk about things in my life – my children, my family especially my childhood recollections, my grandmother’s memoirs that I’m helping to edit and occasionally my husband.
The reason that my husband doesn’t get mentioned as often as the others is because he’s the most balanced thing in my life… making it tough to write good family rated material about him 🙂 He gets a shout out today for supporting me in everything I do and scoring tickets to Bubbles and Sweets next week 😉
So if you’re reading a blog about me, you should know something about me – I’m a 34 year old never-stay-at-home mom living in Charleston SC after growing up in Ontario, Canada. I love Charleston and everything about it, but I often get homesick for family, friends and real poutine (another story entirely). My two kids Robyn, 11 and Liam, 3 are as different as night and day and are both at points in their life where they are challenging and fabulous at the same time. We are currently dealing with the whole pre-teen drama and angst of Middle School with one and the ups and downs of autism with the other, but there are also the sweet, funny moments and pics that I share with you that make it all worth while.
