My name is Ballu Lee, I was born in Freetown, Sierra Leone and moved to the states in the early 90s. I grew up in MD and moved to Virginia for college and stayed after graduation because it is such a beautiful state. I met my husband while we were both in college. We got married young and have been blessed with three beautiful, sweet, smart and healthy children.
I was not always a stay at home mom. I worked in the mental field for several years. My first official adult job is with the Army. I enlisted in May 2002 following 9/11 attacks. I stayed in the Army up until after I got pregnant with my second child. It was heartbreaking to leave the Army at first because I loved my job and I loved serving my adopted country.
I am now a mother of three, with a B.A. in psychology and a master’s degree in Education. I am a stay-at-home mom for now because I don’t want anyone else raising my children. I miss working outside the home but I love taking care of my three little ones more. I have a loving hubby who works 2 full-time jobs so that I can stay home with our babies. I will be writing about parenting, finances, food, exercise and my faith.
Note: I may sometimes write about my hobbies and crazy things people do that irritate me.
