Our Family

Modern Momma Musings

We are a crazy, homeschooling, cloth diapering, babywearing, clean eating, conservative, somewhat crunchy, Catholic family of 5. We always dreamed of a large family and now we have met our match. Our 3 kids keep us on our toes and busy while helping us to grow in love and patience daily.

I am Alexis the main contributor to the blog. I am a work at home mom doing graphic and interior design as well as a working as a trial technician for the family business. Some people say, “A day without laughter is a day wasted”, I say, “A day without creativity is a day wasted.”

While I love design, my main passions, however, are my kids! I love spending time with my kiddos. It has been my dream since I was a young girl to stay home with my kids. That took on a whole new meaning when we started homeschooling our kids. I cannot imagine not spending the extra time with them and watching them grow in so many ways. I feel very blessed to be able to take this opportunity and run with it. It has been very fulfilling to watch them learn and develop, while experiencing it all first hand with them. Something I would never have gotten the chance to do if we had sent them to school everyday.

My husband is an amazing person and an amazing father. I cannot imagine my life without him, and I definitely cannot imagine raising the kiddos without him. He is a great role model, disciplinarian, and the fun, crazy father they need. He can seem to fit whatever mold he needs to use at the perfect moment. His generosity and love are endless and he makes all of us better people just for being in our lives.

Our lives are crazy, busy and complex, but we love every moment of every day. This blog is my outlet for all those things I think about daily and explore in my mind. I’ve always wanted to write about it all, and I am taking that opportunity now! I hope you’ll join us on this new journey. There’s so many things I am very excited to share!
