Kris Marie – aka Mama Kalila.
I’m originally from West TX. I moved to Lubbock and went to LCU in 1999, grad in Dec of 2004. I spent 3 of those summers in between going to Tanzania, East Africa which I absolutely loved. It was a lot of fun and you’ll prob see quite a bit of that in my writing.
I moved here in the spring of 2005 on a whim, was planning to move overseas instead. I met Baba soon after. We became friends first (kind of a funny story all on its own) and started dating 9 months later. 9 months after that we were engaged and then another 6 before we married on May 4, 2007. I love him to pieces and am so greatful things worked out the way they did. We now have 2 gorgeous children who both amaze me and drive me crazy… Now why does that remind me of their Baba?!?
I’m somewhere between a stay at home mom and work at home mom… I love being here w/ the kids… and my goal is to become a Hypnobabies (childbirth) Instructor in the next 5 years or so (so full time WAHM). I’d like to do it on the sooner end, but know its more likely going to be closer to 5 or later.
I am a pregnancy, childbirth, parenting junkie. I love researching, reading, discussing everything about it. Some of my beliefs have changed a little as we’ve gone, some haven’t.
I’ve also become crunchier as time has passed lol. I love finding natural remedies, cleaners, etc.
I’m Catholic… Raised Roman, now Maronite. Love learning about all religions though.
I’ve been failing at the FlyLady thing for about 6 months or so now (maybe longer lol), but determined to stick with it.
I also love to write, which you’ll see here… but I’m also writing for the San Antonio Examiner and Natural Family Today.
I could prob go on, but I think I’ve given a good start right?
