First blog post! Eeek!

Welcome everyone! First off, thank you so much for taking the time to visit the blog. I’ve never done this before and I almost picked up a “How to start a blog for Dummies” book, but I think it’s pretty safe to wing it. I have so much to tell you! If you don’t know me personally, let me start by telling you a little bit about myself and my family.

As I’m going through this, it can get confusing, because there are a lot of us. Stick with me and I promise to keep you entertained! For starters,  I’m a happy-go-lucky girl straight from West Texas, born and raised. I’ve been married 8 years to my handsome husband and we have 3 really cool kids together. Case is 12, Zach is almost 11 and our youngest Ethan, is turning 9 this year. 3 boys, very close in age…and I’m proud to say I don’t have a single gray hair yet. 🙂 Our boys are active, crazy and hilarious like most boys their age. I definitely have my work cut out for me.

In this day and age, it’s not uncommon for married couples to have children from previous relationships. In fact, 40% of married couples with children in the US are step-couples. My husband’s son Case is from his previous marriage and my son Zach is from a previous relationship. Ethan is ours. With this much diversity, you can bet your bottom dollar our weekends are quite interesting. There is never a dull moment in the O’Donnell house.

I hope that my blog/vlog will shed some much needed light on how successful co-parenting works. How HARD it was to get where we are now, and the tools we used to make this whole adventure fun, rewarding, and most of all loving. Here we go!
