Jennifer is a one in a million stay-at-home mom. (More like one OF a million stay at home moms!) She graduated from a liberal arts college but there is nothing liberal OR artsy about her. She is married to Kevin Fischer of This Just In, and together they have a beautiful toddler daughter Kyla Audrey. In no particular order she loves dogs, wine, a good bargain, her family, pizza, and entertaining. Follow her blog of all things miscellaneous including but not limited to cooking and baking, entertaining and party planning, being a mommy, and homekeeping.
According to Jimmy Buffett, a pirate looks at 40. But today, this Mommy is looking at 3. I am amazed that three years have gone by so quickly. Almost every day has been a joy. I say almost because all parents know not every moment of every day is perfect. There have been a few sleepless nights; teething; bumps & bruises; meltdowns; colds & fevers. Clearly though, they have been outweighed by playing games; reading stories; giggles & laughter; smiles; cuddles & snuggles.
Kevin & I made the decision that I would stay home with Kyla. There has never been an easier choice than quitting my job to raise our daughter. As I have stated before that plan isn’t for everyone but it has worked beautifully for us. I wouldn’t trade a single day that I’ve had with her for anything else. I know that all too soon she will be waving Goodbye to me as she steps through the door to Kindergarten, then in one more blink will be off to college. I am treasuring these days more than I can express.
In my heart, I always knew that I would be a mommy. Like many others, I can honestly say that Kyla is my biggest success. I don’t know what direction her life will take but I know I will always be incredibly proud of her. She is my pride & joy and I truly can’t imagine my life without her in it. In a few years when she can understand it more, she’ll have to endure the narration of her birthday: how she came in to this world so easily & effortlessly; how her Daddy was crying so hard when he called Grandma that he could barely talk. She’ll look at photos taken moments after she was born: of her tiny, pink, & perfect little body wrapped in a blanket and a “beanie” on her head. And some day when SHE becomes a Mommy herself she will truly and fully realize and appreciate what a beautiful and special miracle a daughter is.
I love you so much, Kyla Audrey Fischer.
Happy Birthday, sweet & precious daughter!
