About

I am a single mother, not because of divorce, because I was never married *clutches pearls* LOL. My family consists of myself, a 14 year old son (pray for me) and a 6 year old daughter (energy overload). While I work a conventional 9-5 (well 7:30-4:30 but you get the picture) my children are also involved in many extracurricular activities. This, at times, makes me want to talk to someone about cloning. I love it!

In the small amount of spare time the activities that keep me alive and sane include couponing, diy beauty, reading, crocheting, crafting, gardening and yoga. I play around a little with photography as well. So perhaps I have more spare time than I realize…hahahahaha!

As a mother I constantly find myself wondering if I can do more or be more for my kids. Truth is I can only do what I can with what I have. Hints the name of my blog. I’m a mom using what I have. Mommy usage will provide 1.) Recipes (not from a world renowned chef) but from a mother attempting to get her family to eat a little healthier. 2.) Crafts (not from a Michael’s enthusiast) but from a mother trying to cultivate creativity in her kids. 3.) Life experiences (not from someone who has life all figured out) just from one mother to another. The drop down menus up above or the list to the right will take you on an adventure 😉

*Quick Cute Story* (you’ll find a lot of those on Mommy Usage)

My iPhone always turns “muah” into “mommy usage”…darn auto correct! Because everyone I know uses the phrase “mommy usage”…NOT! I took it as a sign! ; )

  1. love your about me page. I was a single mom for years until I re-found my old HS sweetie……he had a ready made family when he took me on. Now thirty years later we are still happy and still broke. those kids still ask for money! So nice to see you here and following along on your blog’s journey.

  2. The journey of single Mom is very challenging. I amazed to hear about your lifestyle. In a single hand, you are managing your kids, home, office, blogging and the times for you. It’s kind an activity of Super Mom. I must appreciate your Mom life. Nice to meet you.

  3. Enjoyed your About. You have that humor thing going on, and I was touched by your level of honesty. I suspect many women can identify with you as a single parent for one reason or the other, and as your readership expands, I can see you making a different (because of your perspective) on the lives of many who need to learn more about the “lighter” side of life.

  4. Love your About and I’m positive I’ll take a tip or three as a parent. 🙃 Us moms have to stick together, no? I count my blessings everyday that I don’t have to do it alone – I don’t know how you do it Super Woman! So glad you’re here, friend.

    1. Thank you! I sure hope I can live up to expectations! 🙂 Yes we do! I would have preferred not to do it alone, myself, but since those are the cards that were dealt I’m going to do it to the best of my ability. I’m going to ride this train until the wheels fall off! Hahahaha! Have a great day! 🙂

  5. Hi Mommy Usage,
    I spent many years as a single mother.
    I met you at Danny Ray’s Meet and Greet. That was nice of you to reblog his party.
    Maybe you can check out my blog if you need a blogging tip or two. That’s what I write about.

  6. Came over from Danny’s Meet & Greet and just love your introduction. My daughter is older than yours but my son is the same age and… so far he is still doing pretty good but I’m prepared… Great to have discovered you here 🙂
