I’m an energetic, optimistic, often exhausted and at times overwhelmed mom of a lively, happy, mischievous and pushing-their-limits bunch of adorable kids. Being a mom of 9 boys and one daughter, ranging from baby to teens, my kids keep me on my toes but have taught me not to sweat the small stuff, how to live in the moment and find excitement in just about anything. I’m the proud wife of the most family-dedicated, fun’s and adventurous dad of the crew. My husband and & I co-direct Chabad of Folsom & El Dorado Hills, which we built from the ground up and we run together with the able help of our children. I’m the First Lady of my home; I specialize in “selective noticing” and at the end of a long day, I choose not to see the dishes in the sink or the dinner leftovers strewn under the kitchen table; and all the above is held together by my ancient, pre-smartphone era, outdated Little Yellow Notepad, without which I wouldn’t know Tuesday from Sunday… and with the help of my coffee – and most importantly, the caramel flavored creamer.
To sum it up, at the end of the day, I’m human. So join me and together we’ll find the humor in the ups and downs, leaps and lurches of raising kids – and now teenagers too – and life in general, and perhaps we’ll figure out the secret to…being human.
