Before moving back to Maryland, I served eight years in the U.S. Navy with my family. I thought that was a busy life, but it really was much calmer compared to being a full-time student with a family.

Depending on my class schedule, I leave at different times to drop the older kids at school and then drop off the younger ones at daycare. I then go to class. By the time I get home, I am so tired, but the day is not finished because dinner must be prepared. After dinner, I get my younger kids ready for bed and after that I can get some homework done. It may sound crazy and most days it is. I just love being a mom, and I love attending school and getting ready to venture into the fashion world.
