Up until June 2019, every post on this blog was written by Echo. Towards the end of June, I took over the blog and plan to continue to grow what Echo created. Hi, I'm Sadie and I'm a scatterbrained, coffee loving, thyroid cancer surviving, momma of three daughters and a bonus daughter.
Kevin and I got married in May of 2019. His daughter, Jasmine, is 22 and expecting her first baby with husband, York. Jenelle is 17, Grace is 14, and Sapphire is 12. Grace moved in with her biological father this year so photos of her will be few and far between. 🙂
Like Echo, I've dealt with anxiety, depression, and a child with autism. I hope to continue sharing honest stories about parenthood along with helpful tips and tricks for dealing with mental health issues while being expected to be an awesome mom at all times! This is something I feel like a LOT of us struggle with.

So, you want to know more about me, eh? Well, I mean, I guess you do because you ended up on this page! Where do I start? I was born, I grew up or do I start when I began with motherhood or as I like to call it, when I began to go mad!
I am from the Twin Cities, in the good old state of Minnesota, dontchya know! Yup, born and raised right here in the frozen north. I am also currently raising my children in the same city that I have spent almost my whole life in!
This whole wife and mother thing was not what I had planned, but you know what? I've kind of grown accustomed to it. I have an amazing husband that I love and adore. He is my best friend and was also the eye candy for ALL of the girls at our junior high! I also have two incredibly good-looking and extremely annoying children that I love with all of my heart.
My boy, who drives me crazy and pushes me right to the edge everyday, is an amazingly unique person. He is smart in ways that I will never know and I will probably never understand the things he knows and doesn't know. He has a form of autism, that was formerly known as Asperger's Syndrome, and it is as much a part of him as his legs and arms are. Video games, World War II, The Titanic, World Domination and constantly asking for things that we have said “No!” to over and over again are his world.
My girl, who has learned how to light my short fuse and then, how to put it out right before I internally explode. She is smart, sassy and full of spunk! I never understood girls growing up, so raising one is even more terrifying! People warn you about the “Terrible Two's”, but I think it's the “Threenager” stage that you really have to look out for. My husband and I are pretty much convinced that she will be the bearer of many sleepless nights and ALL of our gray hairs.
I write about every factor in my life and I mean EVERY factor, while I drink a lot of coffee. From my own health to what I am making for dinner. No subject is off the table. So, buckle up, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the ride!
