About me

Location Texas, United States
Introduction Hi, I'm Kathryn (Kathy). You should know that my kids, my husband, and my Catholic faith are my life. I personify the opposite of what we Mom's are told by the 'experts'....you know that advice about not having your identity wrapped up in your kids. I am who I am because of my kids, they have stretched me and helped me grow, forget myself, get over myself and be a better person for their sake. I fail all the time, more often than not. My deep love for them helps compensate for all my shortcomings and for that I am grateful. I shudder to think of who I would be without my family, and know that God has blessed me abundantly with the gift of Pete and our children. What I share on 9Peas is a glimpse, which by definition is not a permanent thing. When you see all our moments, it is because I want to capture us as I see us and where we are in these moments. We have plenty of flaws, problems, ups and downs. We are a family of sinners. Please do not forget that as you read here. I enjoy sharing this journal and keeping special memories on 9Peas. Thank you for coming! Blessings & Cheer, Kathy P.S. - There are 8 boys and 1 girl. Ages 21, 19, 18, 16, 14, 13, 9, 8, 6
