My Journey Begins

After years of procrastinating, I decided to write down some of the stories of my son Matt's childhood. My Matt and Muggzy series begins the day our new puppy comes home!  Matt was almost 6 years old.  Muggzy,  the cutest pug ever,  weighed about six pounds!  The little boy and the little dog became inseparable. Our family's love affair with Muggzy lasted more than fifteen years.  He saw Matt go off to school every year from first grade to college. My stories will recount these early years.  I envision parents grinning and kids giggling as they read the books together.  I hope it is a fun way to reconnect at bedtime and end each day on a happy note.   Come and follow my journey as I try to find a publisher, so kids can enjoy  my silly stories about the lighthearted way we handled life. 
Let me know what you would like to see in the blog.  While I'm not an expert, I can share my experiences as a parent.  Today Matt is in his twenties, and he thrived in spite of us.  I knew I could never be a perfect mom, so I strived to be good enough.  Remember that I'm not a professional.   Please take what you like and leave the rest. 

A bit of my background information.
Ten years ago, I left my job after 20 years in high tech marketing, to start my own business. It has given me time to give back to others.  Since 2006, I have been reading 3 mornings a week, to a young woman with disabilities.  I believe that reading aloud  reminded me of how much I loved it.  I wrote a couple of short stories as gifts for Matt, and he challenged me to pursue the steps to get published.  Since writing a book has been on my list of things to do, before we called them bucket lists,  I decided to step outside my comfort zone, and try to make it happen.  Perhaps I can inspire some of you to try things that you have been putting off.  It's scary and exciting, and I promise to keep you posted !!!
I plan to update the blog each week on Sundays, which will include news about getting published. 
I may do a been there, done that section  with a simple solution to one of  the issues I faced as a mom.
I hope blog members chime in, and we let things develop naturally.  So long for now.....
