I always envisioned having two kids. I’m an only child so one would have been fine but two was my dream. So when our sweet Evelyn Penn arrived 25 months after our first Mabel, I was tickled pink. I knew life with two would be challenging but in my head I had it all worked out. Now, I’m not sure what I was thinking as I know fair well trying to make civilized plans when kids are involved just does not exist. At least not in my world. Actually, what’s the saying? If you want to hear God laugh, tell him your plans.
Everything started with the birth of our first daughter Mabel Ray in April 2012. We spent Mabel’s first year on the road while my husband was filming two back to back films. It took us away from my support system of family and friends when I felt I needed them the most. I was a first time mom who needed tips and advice!
