Hello, you have reached the blog of the Catholic Lawyer Mama. Please leave a message after the beep. BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!
Oh, shoot, wrong forum! Well, anyway, welcome to my humble abode, er, um, I mean, blog. It is a pleasure to have you! Please kick back, put your feet up, look around, and stay awhile!
So, about me . . .
First thing is first: God has blessed my life abundantly. Wow, no joke there. I have an amazing husband of (almost) five years and three beautiful sons (all under 4 years old at the moment!). Both my husband and I work full-time (okay, more than full-time) jobs outside of the home and, as you may have guessed, I am a lawyer! I graduated from Notre Dame Law School and am the product of 19 years of Catholic education. I am definitely Catholic, but I would have to say that I am more of a "revert" than a "cradle Catholic", mostly because I didn't always really "get it" or "live it" when it came to being Catholic. But I try harder now, so that's a plus! In keeping with my aspirations to become a better Catholic, I have tried to commit to all things Catholic, including natural family planning (NFP). If you have never heard of it, suffice it to say that it is a very effective way of tracking a woman's "fertile" and "non-fertile" times each month and acting accordingly. God has designed women that way, and it's pretty smart (and very effective) actually. At the end of the day, I don't put my trust in contraceptives, but I entrust my fertility to God for Him to use to His will. Which, actually, is a pretty scary thing considering that I have what many would consider a "high-powered" career in "Big Law" (i.e., I work for a major law firm for mostly big corporate clients on big dollar cases). I love my work, but I raise a lot of eyebrows because, well, I just keep on getting pregnant! Which brings me to the best part - my children. Three boys! And I've only been married to my amazing husband for not-quite five years! My husband and boys are the loves of my life. Really. Truly. Madly. Deeply. Okay, so who remembers that song from Savage Garden? It was a high school prom classic! Yeesh . . . I'm definitely showing my age here!
So, there you are -- welcome to my personal life-sized version of insanity! I'm living it and loving it!
Now, it actually is time for you to leave a message after the beep. So, here goes: BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP. :)
