I am a birth mom to 3 kids, adoptive mom to 1 kid, and a stepmom to 4 step-"adults." Yes, you read that right... 8 kids. I am wife of actor Michael Beach, home cook, taxi driver, herder of children, terrible housekeeper and blogger of mom truth.

This Monday, I am crushing on myself. I know it's corny but for once I am going to give myself some props because we should all give ourselves a pat on the back every once in a while. So here it goes... 

A year ago, I posted this crazy photo because I thought it was quite telling about my life as a mom and I wanted share my mom truth with my few mom friends that I knew would get it.

Well then the internet went into a frenzy and the next thing I knew it was all over the internet and there were articles and news stories popping up every where.

Then I got the chance to respond to all the hoopla with the article on the Huffington Post and me being the outspoken person I am jumped at the opportunity and wrote I Drove The Internet Into A Frenzy Telling The Truth About Motherhood.

You think you know what motherhood is, but you have no idea until you are in the trenches and it is too late to turn back. It consumes you with love, frustration, tears, hugs and kisses, messes, hours of cooking and cleaning, and lots of bodily fluids. To put it bluntly, motherhood ain’t pretty, but we are all doing our best to make it through each day.

Little did I know that all this would open a new door for me that I had only daydreamed about. I heard from moms literally all around the world and my article was translated into several different languages. It was the push I needed to follow through on my dream of creating my own blog. And now I have created My Life Is A Beach, Cooking Is A Beach and The Mom Forum and am building a community of amazing moms that share their mom truths with me and help me feel like I am not so bad of a mom after all.

I can't thank all of you enough for reading my blogs, sharing your stories and supporting me through this journey. And I am looking forward to all the possibilities that are coming my way.
