Hi! I’m Ashley, mother of three, wife, homeschooler, and blogger. We are Martimers (Nova Scotia) at heart living in the prairies of Saskatchewan.
Here you can find tips for getting through the day, steps to getting the secular homeschool work and housework done. You can sign up for weekly email newsletter to keep up to date.
I write from the heart, I’m 100% honest that I don’t know everything, I am stumbling along just like the next person. I’m going to tell you when I screw up just the same as I do when I have found success, in fact Instagram is a looking glass into our everyday life, no filters, no edits.
We are secular homeschoolers, and new to it with only 2 years under our belt, know that you aren’t alone in starting this journey, we’re stumbling along with homeschooling, with parenting three children, along with you! Here you can see that you aren’t the only one struggling through the day as a parent, as a homeschooler, as a wife.
Forgetful Momma started four years ago, while the focus has changed from an online journal to sharing our journey homeschooling our children through secular eclectic methods while keeping up with the housework and feeding my family. You can sign up for weekly email newsletter to keep up to date.
Why homeschooling? After a few months of my oldest going to public school for kindergarten, we came to the realization that we have been unschooling all along. She wasn’t being challenged, and rarely entertained by the things they were doing in class. 2015/2016 was our first official year homeschooling, but not our last as we’re in full swing of the 2017-2018 year with three kids willing and eager to learn.
We are a family of five. We are loud. We love each other.
Hubby – He supports our family as a Route Sales Rep with a large company. Playing guitar in his spare time. And, he rarely smiles for pictures.
Austin – Eight years old (March 2009). She is also a Monster High, princess, Lego loving girl, going into grade 3.
Brookland – Six years old (May 2011). She is a ball of laughing-, singing-, dancing- energy. She loves Frozen, princesses, Barbie, and Lego. She’s very photo genetic, always wanting her picture taken. Going into grade 1.
Gauge – Four years old (November 2013). This little boy is giving me a run for my money. He love Spider-Man, Thomas the Train, and bugging his older sisters as he tries to keep up with them. Part of trying to keep up with his sister means he wants to “do school” too. So this year I’ll give him a little bit of preschool work to do.
I am also a contributor for One Smiley Monkey.
