I come from a large family of five children, and I was raised a military brat so I know how to hold my own. I was fortunate enough to be born into a family with two parents who are a stellar example of what a real marriage looks like. They survived 5 kids, countless deployments, and through it all they supported one another, and loved each other well. 36 years later, they are the reason I refuse to settle
I’m a little hard headed and opinionated. And to say I’m stubborn is kind of an understatement. But that’s mostly because I’m decisive. I know who I am and what I want. It’s something I won’t compromise or change from relationship to relationship. You can take it, or leave it, but that’s just who I am.
I have a beautiful and bright five year old named Molly. She’s the greatest thing I have or ever will do with my life. That being said, my priorities aren't exactly the same as other women my age. I am responsible for molding my child, so I refuse to settle for less than I deserve and hope she will always do the same.
I believe that the best foundation for a happy life is a happy childhood, which is why I don’t mind embracing all the corny and clich? activities kids love to do. I actually enjoy the county fair every year, and it’s not April until you’ve gone to the circus. Growing up with 5 kids, we didn’t get to do a lot of traveling, so I embrace every chance to take a trip we get. At age 5 my kid has already flown cross country 4 times, been to the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Boston, been to six zoo’s, 4 aquariums, Sea World and Lego Land. So anyone who wants to hang with us has to be down with being a kid again.
I have my hands full being a mom, a student and a bartender, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t love it. However, I am still a woman and I’d never turn down a little romance or the chance to have a kid free evening out. I love a good wine, being a soccer mom, and catching a live sporting event. But in the interest of full disclosure, I can’t cook to save my life!
What I want in life isn't complicated. I want to find a good man. I want to raise successful, happy children, and I want to enjoy every wonderfully imperfect day of my life. If that sounds good to you, I’d love to hear it.
