Hi. I’m Natalie, founder of Messy Mom.

I am so glad you are here. Check out this video to find out what Messy Mom is all about!

For now my family of 6 lives in a small space in Cincinnati Ohio. It can certainly get interesting with my crazy messy clan.

Let me introduce you to them.

J and I have been married for 16 years. He was a worship leader when I met him and for the first 10 years of our marriage, but he recently transitioned into a computer programming career. He is also very handy and creative. He’s always repurposing or building something.

Z is my oldest and is in 3rd grade. He has had glasses since he was 15 months old and he fits the stereotype of cute little guy in glasses (he’s a smarty pants).

SJ is in 1st grade and goes to a special school for the deaf. We learned about her hearing loss when she was two years old. I write a lot about our journey with cochlear implants here on messymom.com .

Ezie is my rough and tough 4 year old. I get to hang out with him all day while the big kids are in school. I would say the best way to describe him is ALL BOY.

Elle is the baby of the family. She was so excited to enter the world that she was born in the van on the way to the hospital. I call it the grand finale. 

I cannot conclude this introduction without mentioning that Jesus is my life. He is the reason I can make sense of anything and the grace for the times I feel like I can’t. 

What I’ve learned from motherhood in these first 9 years is that it can be scary, funny, beautiful, tiring, and yes messy, but I am grateful for every single bit of it. Thanks for stopping by my messy little blog. Please let me know you were here and if there is anything I can do for you. I LOVE community, even the virtual kind. Let’s encourage each other as our stories unfold.
