Hi there! Here’s the space where you learn about me. First thing is the ‘Tee’ in MrsTee stands for Tiffany. I’ve been married to my wonderful husband or as you will learn I call him most often my ‘Hubby’ for 10 years now but we’ve been together through it all for over 12 years. We have 6 children in what we call ‘TeamHaywood’. Their ages range from 23 down to 6. Specifically 23, 20, 19, 10, 8 and 6. Yes I know I had have a bit of an extra large gap in there and no I don’t know what I was thinking…LOL. I’m proud to say I am Momma to all even though we are what I guess is a called a ‘blended’ family yet as far as love goes we are all one big happy ‘Team’. I refer to the younger ones as my Kiddies (2 Girlies and 1 Buddie) and the older more hmm let’s say moody members of the Team simply as The Teenagers (3 Boys).
In a past life oh so long ago…ok well it’s only been about 10 years now but it seems like forever, I worked in corporate America as an Administrative Assistant in fields varying from Assistant in a College Admissions Office, a Paralegal Assistant, Obituary Department Writer (yes folks I Did THAT), to a Loan Officer. Yet, when my Hubby re-enlisted and I had my oldest daughter I became a Stay At Home Mom. A name which, by the way, gives no credit to the job skills it actually requires. There is little to nothing Stay At Home about nurturing, wrangling and at times entertaining Kiddies of any age.
As a couple, we decided that we didn’t want her in the hands of different babysitters and daycare centers when we weren’t even sure where or how long we would be living in any one place. Not sure if there are any Army Wives reading this but it can be a crazy life at times and we wanted to save our daughter from that impact as much as possible.
It turns out our decision was a good one. We ended up being stationed in Hawaii, where we had no family (other than our Army family) and knew very few people. I made the first move there (including the 3 plane 15 1/2 hour flight) while being 7 months pregnant with my 2nd daughter. Talk about a tough flight…Whew! We lived on base there for a year and I gave birth to my daughter at the Army Hospital. So technically, I have a ‘local’ for a daughter. Pretty cool huh? My Hubby was then deployed and with 2 toddlers now and a pre-teen son, I moved back Stateside and stayed in North Carolina throughout the deployment. Once he returned, back to our Aloha home we went with me preggers again and flying this time at about 8 months pregnant. I know I’m a glutton for punishment. I had my Baby Buddie there and he is now our second little ‘local’ child. We have since moved back Stateside and are now living the Southern dream in North Carolina. Let’s just say I’m a New York girl at start but as of now I’m a North Carolina Girl at heart.
Through my Hubby’s deployment plus our family moving back and forth from Hawaii twice both times while being pregnant I can say we’ve been through a lot. Yet we always stick it through as a Team.
In every situation I’ve ever faced, Love Life and Laughter have gotten me through…the Love of my God my Hubby and my Kiddies plus the Life we are so Blessed with and the Laughter they always bring me. So, here I am: Follower, Wife, Momma, Woman and Friend giving you a glimpse of MY everyday journey.
Since beginning this journey as a Blogger I have found nothing but blessings. Even on the days where I have sat feeling beat up and bruised by HTML Codes I still felt encouraged by my Readers. I realize that without them none of this is possible and I am always grateful for their words of encouragement and support.
