I’m a resourceful and “thrifty” mom of three, Riley (9), Zelly (almost 2) and George (8 months). 3 years ago I was single, and so was Kirk Zipfel, my adorable comedian husband. Doing my time as a single parent with Riley, I learned how to be-bop around this town on exactly “one thin dime”. Not an easy task. Now we are a family of 5, tag team parenting whenever we can and (proudly) drive a MINIVAN!
I’m a teacher by trade, and resourceful as all get out. But parenting has reminded me that resourcefulness does not necessarily equate knowledge. When I sit down with myself, in those rare quiet moments, and try to figure it out, try so hard that it hurts, to recall all that I must know, I usually just come up with the damn lyrics to “The Wheels on the Bus”.
“What do I know?” is my written account (’cause I know I’ll forget) of my discovery, and rediscovery of what the hell it is I know…I’m pretty sure there’s gonna be some doozies but also some treasures! Visit often. And comment. I LOVE comments.
Be in the know.
