My name is Nikki. I live in a small town in Arkansas. Together, Ben & I, have FOUR kids. We seem to have the living thing down sense we’re still living, but there is very little organization….mostly chaos that seems to be self-inflicted. We are a Jesus & Football based family. If the doors are open, we are in our pew and if the lights are on we are at the field.
I guess I should mention why I chose ravingsofakindmomma as a blog name.
1) I’ll start w/ “ravings:” To pick a blog name is weird. Like, you want it to suit you, but then you don’t want it to be boring. Then you want it to kind of give an impression of what the blog is about, but what if the blog changes all the time? If you try to be funny, like me, then you want people to see humor in it, but at the same time I’m not all that funny so I don’t want to give a false impression. Can you kind of see where “ravings” come in? Good.
2) “ofakind:” I could have used spaces, but that would be no fun. Also, calling yourself kind is similar to calling yourself humble…right? If you say, “I’m the most humble person I know.” You’ve just eliminated any sense of humility you have, right? My manner of thinking on calling myself kind, is kind of like telling yourself you can wait to go pee when you are DYING at the beginning of your street. You keep saying, “I can wait, I got this, I’ve never peed my pants (as an adult) before…” basically, I’m faking it till I make it.
3) “momma:” I don’t think I need to elaborate on this much.
