Just in case you wanted to know…
1. I have given birth (naturally and without pain medication) to six children. Two of them were born at home with a midwife. As well as being very present at my own deliveries, I have done labor support for seven friends during their time of need.
2. I love to write. This passion has been with me since I could scribble with a crayon. The first indication to others came when I tied for first place in a fouth grade essay contest and started writing my own stories about the animals that I loved. I haven’t always been consistent with expressing my ability, but I’ve never walked away from it. I’m excited to see where it takes me in the future.
3. As a young adult, I had a deep desire to be a detective. I know that’s a little far from where I ended up. It’s really just my need to find answers and figure out the mysteries that confound the world.
4. I can sing. I’ve never done it professionally but have a regular fantasy about being the next American Idol…Oh, wait; I’m too old for that.
5. My hair has been just about every style and color except for black and shaved. I like to keep my husband guessing who’s going to walk through the door. Currently, I’m sporting a rather platinum blond short cut. Guess what? I’m ready to change it!
Tell us something about you…be well-be beautiful.

I had 2 c-sections and 3 naturally deliveries. I preferred the natural deliveries. My first baby, and my last child were C-sections. My fantasy growing up was that I would become a scientist. Kelly you need to start an all girl band and be the lead singer. You could call yourselves The Be Beautifuls. you would totally rock! Hey I have a hundred ideas about that now. How empowering would that be?
I like the sound of that! I have a friend who plays keyboard; we’re supposed to get together sometime and mess around with some music. Do you sing?
Five kids for me. I would have used medication if I wasn’t allergic! They did give me an epidural once, but discovered during transition that it had popped out and wasn’t working the whole time!
As for being too old for American idol… you know Moses was eighty–that’s 80 when God had him deliver the Hebrews out of bondage. So there! You’re never too old to accomplish great things!
I love to write, too…and I’m looking for a Sugar Daddy and/or Mama. Any thoughts? 🙂
I love to change my hair style and color all the time…. it use to bug my hubby but now I think he likes it… will email you soon!! Thank you for stopping by my blog.
Husbands know better than to not like your hair!
You are NEVER too old. Sing your heart out my friend, wherever you want. I don’t watch the show, but if you’re on, I’ll tune in AND vote for you.
Hell, maybe I’ll just go with you and be there for emotional support.
I see a dark purple streak on that platinum head with a punked out style. Why not?
HA! I want to join Dog’s group and be a bounty hunter. My need for adrenaline I guess.
Thanks for the vote of confidence about singing, but I really am too old for AI; you have to be under 29. Though I might pass for a much younger age, I don’t have a fake ID. =)
I’m not sure where the hair is going next. My hair-styling daughter is in charge of that.
I gave birth naturally to four out of my six kids (including my BIG 10 lb 15 oz boy) My twin girls were born two weeks ago and I HAD to have laughing gas at deleivery, as things got rough and we were avoiding a c section on baby B! I miss not being really aware of what was going on, but my sister and husband tell me that it might have been best that I was not so aware as we dealt with cord prolapse , sunny side up positioning , pushing a baby back in and turning her etc…all within five minutes! In the end, I have two beautiful girls! However, I will still advocate for a natural birth, and I’m still glad I tunred down the epidural!
Those really big headed babies hurt like hell! My son was 8lb 13oz.- the only one that I actually screamed with. Thanks for your comment.
I’m with you on #2 and I WISH I was with you on #4. I can’t sing to save my life…lol.
I’ve given birth naturally once (my daughter), and then with my son, I said, “Give me the epidural!” You are amazing… six times!
So glad you joined in today!
Thanks for hosting your “5 things About Me”. I’ve met some new web friends. Your the best!
You can always sing in the shower…
6 kids sans-medication! You are amazing. I’d love to hear more about your birth experiences. You should share your top 10 “tips” for having a positive labor and delivery experience. 🙂
I would love to post about my birth experiences! I guess I never thought about it before now. Thanks for giving me the idea, Stephanie.
Oh I love your hair first of all, second I must say I admire you. I’ve had 3 and only one ended up without meds and that was because the Dr. got it wrong. So your a much braver woman than I
Yeah, but doable!
I would have loved to have a midwife when I had any of my three children. Sadly, it was illegal where I live until recently.
I love to write too, but don’t do it especially well. I’m working on writing more and will hopefully improve.
And the hair? I’m like that too. In October 2009, I had gotten to where I was so sick of it I cut it VERY short. *mistake* It’s growing back, red, and ready for a new color.
I love this post!
Hmm, well, I’m jealous about all your haircuts! *grin* I’m not brave enough to change my hair, though I fantasize about it. Ha!
I also went medicine-free with my kids (well, the last one they gave me something but it didn’t do much). I’m amazed you have six kids! WoW.
Thanks for stopping by my place the other day. 🙂
Go for it with your hair! It’s just hair not a hysterectomy!!!!!
Your list is wonderful. Wow, you have six kids. I love to have more but is difficult and only miracle can give me one more.
Have a nice day.
