Hello to my friends and visitors,
Thank you for your visit to Mama's Happy Hive and your desire to learn more about me - the queen bee. 😉 I'm Vanessa and I am happily married to the man of my dreams. If you enjoy a good love story and want to know how this Queen Bee met her tall dark and handsome hunk, please read our sticky sweet love story linked below. I have two children and I refer to them as Little Bee (son - *4 years old) and Sweet Bee (daughter - *8 months old).
*Updated: April 2017
My occupational background is a Pediatric nurse (RN, BSN) for 13 years and I am currently employed as a Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Although, I consider my full-time job to be a stay-at-home-mom to my children. I homeschool (preschool) my son and I plan to continue to homeschool both of my children in the future.
I created Mama's Happy Hive blog as a way to express my creative side and connect with other stay-at-home-moms through the blogging community. Plus, I love having an organized home, living a healthy life, praising God, and sharing playful learning ideas for children. I write about all these topics here in our hive!
I homeschool my children with a combination of hands-on learning philosophies and Montessori inspired education. I also plan to incorporate more Charlotte Mason with living books into our curriculum. I take great joy in watching my children discover the beauty of the natural world all around them and truly find this to be the most delightful journey I have ever taken. Just in case you can't tell... I love spending time and educating my own children in our home!
Thanks for visiting! I hope you find inspiration for your own playful and creative learning with your children here on Mama's Happy Hive!
