Hi. My name is Rachel.
I started this blog in 2012 when I was pregnant with my first baby. Having been a preschool teacher and nanny who was headed into motherhood, I thought about all of the children I had influence over, and was reminded of the poem “The Hand the Rocks the Cradle,” realizing that I had a unique story to tell in that I have “rocked” so many cradles. Since then, I have had 4 children and fostered others.
As for me now? I am married to a handsome man named The Milkman. We had our firstborn, The Captain in 2012, had a daughter, Mamitas, in 2013, our angel baby, Ezra in 2014, our rainbow baby, Peach in 2015, and Gordito in 2018. We have fostered since 2016, and have been blessed to have our lives touched by Moochie, Cheekies, Warrior, and Chatito.
My life goal was to become a mother and home maker and now that I am here, I’m not sure what’s next. My life revolves around breast milk, baby wearing, home schooling, farm life, fostering, cooking, and stealing kisses from Milkman in the clearance shoe aisle at Target. Follow me here as I document my thoughts, adventures, mishaps, and general insanity, along with recipes, giveaways, and other randomness.
