I had been thinking of starting a blog for ages. What was holding me back you ask? The obvious: a name. How do you pick the perfect one? The perfect one. As a starting point, I asked my husband. Nothing. I asked my mother. Still nothing. I asked my friend Kelly from Louisiana. And (as she put it) she was like a dog with a bone. In a matter of minutes she cranked out dozens of funny, witty, fitting names. Our next step was to narrow our options and be realistic about what my unborn blog would contain. So there you have it, the polished result: "The Engineering Mama." A little old blog about me, getting the most out of motherhood and life in general. This blog isn't meant to be anything more than that. It is sure to be filled with plenty of pictures of our little man and our exciting adventures. More to come on our exciting adventures... I have so much to fill you guys in on and we have big plans for this Labor Day weekend... the last leg of our move!
