Welcome to my blog! My name is Nicole, the mama behind Mama to 5 Blessings; a blog geared to parenting! With topics such as family travel, homeschooling, kids crafts, parenting tips, kid friendly recipes, family product reviews and more!
Mama to 5 Blessings began in 2009 as Mama to 3 Blessings (my husband and I had 3 children at the time). I started blogging to share about my homeschool journey and to encourage other homeschool moms.
Some of my other passions are first and foremost my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, my family, breastfeeding and cloth diapering.
So why is my blog named Mama to 5 Blessings? My husband Fritz and I had our 5th baby in 2013 so my blog has had a few name changes since I started blogging. When I started blogging in 2009 my blog was Mama to 3 Blessings, then Mama to 4 Blessings when baby 4 came along now Mama to 5 Blessings in 2013 when baby 5 joined our family. Who knows, hopefully someday it will be Mama to 6 Blessings!
I love being a mom. Being an only child I never dreamed of having just one child. I hated being the only child so to me 5 children is not a lot. I am constantly asked are those all your children? Yes, they are and I am truly blessed!
We have 3 boys ages 9 years, 7 years and 3 years old. Then we have 2 girls ages 5 years and 17 months. Plus I am praying for God’s will for baby 6. I would love to be a Mama to 6 blessings!
