Here We Go

These are my crazy kids. My son Kye will be turning 3 in May and my daughter Haygen (also known as, Miss Priss, or Drama Momma) turned 1 in January. My husband and I have been married almost 5 years and have been extremely blessed with an amazing family. After becoming a mom I soon realized that my life had changed forever. I'm not talking about the fact that now I had someone that was totally dependant on me and that everything for the next 18 years would revolve around them. I'm talking about the part when you turn in your identity for the shared identity of women all over the world. No longer would I be L'Ray Klafka. I now and forever more would be MOM. Don't get me wrong, I love being a mother but I feel like somewhere in all the craziness I have lost a piece (let's be real, a HUGE chunk) of myself. So as my first attempt to regain some of those lost pieces I am doing something I said I would never do...starting a blog.

If you have ever read anything my husband has written you know that he is an incredible writer. I would just like to say in advance that I am the complete opposite of him, he is an incredible intellect who writes about extremely deep issues that plague his heart. My writing on the other hand will probably consist of things that are going on in my everyday life. You know, laundry, boogers, dirty diapers, lack of sleep, fighting children, diet, potty training, Sesame Street, the things that really matter in life :) Let the adventure begin!


  1. Yea!!! I love that you are starting a blog. I look forward to reading about your everyday life.

    Love ya,

  2. So excited to get to know you through this blog. Really, really want to hang out, but know the reality of a busy mom. My "baby" will be a senior in high school in a month, but oddly, I think we have more in common than either of us would know. Excited to explore this young friendship....
