My name is Cait. I’m mom to three amazing little people (6-year-old Leo, 5-year-old T, and 3-year-old Seuss) and wife to the fantastic and oft-shiny-shoed Schizz. I am a school psychologist who had plans to stay at home with the kids until they were in school full-time. But life likes to laugh at our plans and now here I am: suddenly, unexpectedly, homeschooling and blogging about it. I promise to share the good, the bad, the ugly, and the funny as we adjust to this new normal. If you are wondering why my blog is called My Little Poppies, you can read more about poppies in this article by Miraca Gross.
If there is such a thing as reading too much (and I don’t believe there is), I have always done it. I am a bibliophile; I learned at an early age to always have a book with me for when a moment of boredom strikes. In this technological age, information sharing is easy. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter or Pinterest or Instagram, you can see random snippets of our day, from funny quotes, to inventions, to kid art, in addition to what I read daily on topics of interest to me as a mother, educator, homeschooler, gifted advocate, nature-lover, and health-nut. On this site, you will also find occasional recommendations, in addition to recommended resources. I want you all to know that we only recommend what we love.
Other than that, I love books (the old-fashioned kind, with pages), strong coffee, Two Step, sushi, CrossFit, melty cheese, and Kenny Chesney. Sleep is for the weak; I’d rather be reading, or outside, or reading outside, preferably hidden away in some filthy little nook like I did when I was six.
I’m so glad you stopped by. Feel free to stay awhile.
