My name is Ashley Michardi and I’m a 30-something year old mom. I have four boys named Christian, 11, Dawson, 7, Erick, 4, and Michael, 2. My husband, Jason, is the father of my three youngest while Christian’s father is from a previous marriage.

Through the years I have had some ups and downs and in betweens…typical of most of us, right?

Through all of life’s “in betweens”, I found myself packing on the pounds and have been working for the last couple years to get back to being healthy. I have found that getting in shape is A LOT harder at 30-something than my early 20’s. I figure it’s another example of God’s sense of humor.

Last but not least is my expanding career while trying to be an active parent. I feel like it should be the premise to Mission Impossible 15. (I think that’s the one they’re on now) I honestly feel like I’m always slacking somewhere but I refuse to give up until I figure out how to make it all work!

This blog is my attempt at feeling normal. I know I’m not the only one going through this phase of life…

I’m constantly being told I will miss this….but I can’t help but think, “Will I REALLY?”
