A Blue Eyed Mama's Blog

About Me and My MOM Blog

Hi, I’m BEM (Blue Eyed Mama)

I am an, originally reluctant (but loving it now), stay at home mom of 3 and step-mom to 1 (2 girls and 2 boys). After living in cities like Chicago, Indianapolis, and the Tampa Bay area, my family and I have settled in rural Indiana. We are a homeschool family, which is rewarding but often difficult, and I also teach small classes online from home. My time is spread thin sometimes, but we make time for movie night and we try to read together, as a family, a couple nights a week.

mom blogI am an ordinary mom, just like everyone else. Sometimes my kitchen is really dirty (like right now, I can assure you it is a mess), my laundry is often piled up, sometimes my kids are on my last nerve, but I enjoy having fun with my family… and really can’t see it any other way! My husband is a great partner, but like many, we’ve seen a few ups and downs, however, through some love and hard work, we’ve built a life that we both love and are proud of!

Why Blog?

I never dreamed of being a “blogger”! I started my blog for fun… I like sharing ideas and having ideas shared with me… and that is why I blog. This blog isn’t a perfect “Mom Blog”, my pictures aren’t always perfect, I don’t post as often as others do, and I am not as on trend as many of the mom bloggers, but this blog is simply where I come to share ideas or experiences, and I hope you find something you like or relate to along the way!

I’d love to hear from you so head over to Facebook or Instagram and follow me (if you’d like), there you can see some of the day-to-day stuff I might not actually blog about. I also have an Etsy Shop, it isn’t a full time business, but worth checking out as the sales go to support our Little Library.

Thanks for stopping by and getting to know a bit more about me, I hope to hear from you!

BEM + Fam 🙂

P.S. Sometimes I might mention or blog about products (beyond Amazon links), though this will be rare, I’d have to love the product to do so. Anyway, I am not paid for any of the items I blog about and should that ever happen I will mention it in the description. Some, not all, of my links are affiliate* links (like Amazon), but I strive to only suggest things I truly believe in and use. I also try to blog about my experiences with my affiliates and review of their products. For more information click here.

*a link that gives the possibility of compensation, however, most clicks lead to NO compensation, the ones that do, on a good day, average fractions of pennies per click.
