I’d love to tell you a little, or a lot, more about my life and family. My name is Kendra, and I have a wonderful son named Dean (and a pretty awesome husband named Graham). We live in San Jose, CA, and we are both high school teachers. Almost 2 years ago our wonderful Dean came into our lives.

I started this blog because I quickly found parenthood to be a wild ride and wanted to create a space where parents can learn and grow with one another. My pregnancy was complicated (as many are), and we are dealing with a host of health issues with Dean. I have come to realize how important it is to be a Do It Yourself Parent and to advocate for your kids.

I have also found that DIY projects are my creative outlet. They keep me motivated and enthused. Since I had Dean, I have had an excuse to feed my decorating craze (sorry honey). I am constantly coming up with fun, easy, and cheap DIY projects.

I have divided this blog into a few categories:

  • DIY
  • Parenting
  • Must Read Books

This is all a work in progress–as is life! So I am sure I will be adding things as I get the hang of this.
