Hi! My name is Becky, and I’m a mom of 2 wonderful children, Julia (j) and Ben (b). j was born in 2009 and b in 2011, and they have changed my life for the better. My husband J (unintentionally we named our kids with our same first initials – so lowercase j and b are the kiddos and upper case J and B are the hubs and me… Maybe its laziness, but this is always how I refer to all of us in writing.) and I both work full time, and in our spare time spend as much of it with our lovable littles. I’m dabbling in the blogger/internet/web design world, so this will likely be a test site for me to try out some things.
I know you are wondering “Why ‘Tinker Tailor Mommy Wife'”???
Let me start by saying I have never seen the movie with a somewhat similar name. One night it just hit me that TTMW would be a cool name for a blog. It just seems to fit me. I love to tinker – gimme something to put together or take apart and I’m as happy as a clam.
Tailor – I adore sewing, but would not consider myself “crafty.” For some reason, that word has a negative connotation for me – no offense to all you crafty types out there, it just doesn’t fit well for me. I started sewing at a very young age because my mother was a seamstress, so I have made my own clothes for many many years.
Now that I’m a mom (hence the “Mommy”) I don’t have much time for sewing at my sewing machine in the dungeon (a.k.a. basement sewing room), so I’ve started other sewing projects. I’ll have to blog about it some time…
And the “Wife” part seemed to fit well for me but posts relating to this will likely be more focused on me as a person than specifically as a wife.
Thanks for checking me out. I hope you find the site interesting and useful!
