View Full Version : Hello from Beautiful Montréal....

03-03-2012, 08:34 PM
So I am from Montréal Québec Canada, Where everyone finnishes a sentence with "Eh?", It's a habit, it just comes naturally, we all do it and don't even know it..... Born and raised in Montréal, and I am not fluent in French, that might surprise some of you.

I am very proud Wife to my High School Sweetheart, 11 Years Married. And I am an even Prouder Mommy of 3, beautiful Children. I am stay at home Mommy and this is the most challenging Job I've ever done... Still havent perfected it. Don't think I ever will, but Im gonna try. I'm a mess and I make lists of the projects and ideas I want to do and never get them started, let alone finnished. Chasing 3 kids around tends to have that effect on me...LOL

I take a zillion pictures and never seem to print or scrap any, that's where you guys all come in, I am taking on a new Adventure, looking forward to learning and sharing lots.... I know I can do it.

I worry about my kids... Alot more than I need to... I ponder what it would be like not to be home, but at the same time am grateful that I am. I remember my career and don't miss it. I remember being trim and do miss it. I try hard to be the best that I can be as a Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister and Friend.

Sometimes things go really wrong before they get near right.... But at the end of the day, my family is what matters most... As long as I have them, I believe I am richer than the richest man alive...

Great intro...welcome to Gingerscraps. When my son first starting talking he used to say "eh?" all the time! It was pretty funny since we're not from Canada and have no family from Canada either.

hello and welcome! i'm from Michigan, so I'm used to the "Eh" word lol. (Although Northern Michiganders don't say it as often as you Canadians lol)
Anyway, thanks for the great intro! Can't wait to see your LOs. The challenges here are a great way to get your creativity flowing.

You sound a lot like me! No, no mother will ever perfect being a mother; its just that challenging! LOL I too worry about my children, even though lately I've been trying to hand that worry over to God. It is just so hard when you see how much they do need you, but you know you need to sometimes let them make their mistakes to be who they will be in adulthood. Eek, just thinking about, I dont want to! LOL

Anyways, welcome to GS!!
