PandeMommium by Allison Rouble
My name is Allison and I am a married SAHM of 3 kids. A 3 year old daughter and 2 year old boy/girl twins. I originally ventured into the online world with my blog several years back when we got pregnant for the first time with our daughter who unfortunately did not make it and was still born at 5 months. This was extremely devastating for us as we had been suffering from male factor infertility for the 7 years previous and had finally made the decision to use donor
sperm to create our family. However, our hearts still so wanted a child and we moved on and eventually had the children we so desperately wanted. I start blogging in an attempt to find other moms/families who also had children born from donor conception and what I found was so much more. I discovered I had more to write about than just being a mom of donor conceived kids, I also found that I got great joy from interacting with others about being a Mom, A Wife, A Student (yes I am also back in school), etc. Most importantly I found an online world of friends and family.
I was recently invited to a write a weekly column called PandeMommium and to moderate the Parenting Forum at LeanOnUs, and happily that also inspired me to branch off from my first blog GENdMOM, which focuses on my life as
a woman who recently turned 40, being a student again, infertility, etc. and create another blog that is “all things kids”. I know, I know another mommy blog, but I feel that it is such a huge part of my life and I see this new blog as sort of a continuation of GENdMOM, the second half of the story. Its the blog that talks about my everyday life with kids. Its a place for me to journal about our experiences of finally being the family we so desperately wanted. Good or Bad PandeMommium will have it all!
Ask me anything, my life is an open book as you will see from my blogs. I am not shy nor offended easily. I love the personal interaction, so please feel free to email me about anything if you are feeling too shy to ask on the forums.
I look forward to getting to know all of you!
