We picked some Black Eyed Susan's on the side of the road yesterday. I like the way they look and of course I am partial to their name. I think we will try a flower pressed soap with them. We snipped the flowers and put them in water. Since I accidentally pulled a plant up by its roots we replanted it back in our wildflower area at home.
Susan, Mother, Teacher, CLC, Doula, Family Herbalist, Student Midwife, and more
I have given birth to 9 children. Three of my children live with their father. My oldest is an adult now. I work part time as an Infant / Toddler Developmental Specialist with Early Intervention. I now run a Cargiver's Day Out Program, NatUUre's Children at my church. My ultimate goal though is to become a DEM. I am currently studying to become a Midwife. I also provide in home breastfeeding support to families as a CLC (certified lactation counselor). I am also a Family Herbalist. I earned my graduate degree in Education (Infant / Toddler Development) while I had my 5th and 6th child. Now I am trying to slow things down and enjoy my journey through life as a mother and grandmother. I have many passions and learning to combine them all as I support my family financially is a worthy challenge. One day I hope to add PhD after my name. I may be 60 when that happens but that is OK. Right now, I am starting nursing school this Fall.
