Hi everyone, here's a little about me..

My name is Tori, but many people call me ToriBean. It's to the point that I don't think my husband even calls me Tori anymore just some iteration of Bean, Beanie, Beans, Beanie Bean, etc. 

I am many many things, but lately being a mother seems to be my whole personality.... anyone relate? Although I do work a full time 9-5 office job, most of my daily life is wrapped up in my children. I have two kids under two years old; they are only 14 months apart. In the past two years I have grown and changed in ways unimaginable to my past self. I've spent so much time learning everything baby and toddler in order to be the best mother I can to my two little ones. It was difficult to find a good source of information, that had both research and practice. I really was searching for that mom wearing a shirt smelling of spit up, balancing a baby and a toddler on each hip kind of feel. Ya know the messy hair in a bun, not sure what day is it but somehow still getting through each day with a smile on my face type of mom. It is my nature to be organized, and well-researched before making any moves. Motherhood definitely kicked that version of me in the a**. But, I've still tried my best to keep things afloat in an organized and well thought out manner. In order to do so, I've compiled many lists for myself to help with my day to day life. Anytime I take on a new project, or developmental stage of my childrens lives I sit down and make a list. I usually start in excel because the columns and rows are calming to my Type A brain. I like the feel of organized chaos way more than striaght up chaos. Alas, I felt compelled to share my thoughts and findings in the off chance it can help a fellow parent out. And hey, if it helps me make some friends, that's pretty cool too...


So here it is, some of my lists I created to help myself learn all things mom -- I hope it helps ;)
