Kim Young

Hello! My name is Kim. You may see my name with a few posts here and there, I am a contributor to 3 Boys And A Dog. I have my own blog, Mom Tried It, that I started the end of August 2009. I found that every time two or more moms got together it became tip and idea sharing time. So I started a blog that shares tips, ideas, and sanity savers for moms (with the occasional product review). I love to try new things, so the blog works out perfect.

I am a Texan that moved to my husband's hometown in Southern Illinois. We got married in 2002.

My husband, Matt, is the network administrator at the local high school. He loves to play the "If we won the lottery..." game, but the problem is, we don't play the lottery. He is a wonderful husband and an outstanding dad!

Our son, Cole, was born in 2006. He is sweet, extremely compassionate, very hyper, and all about trucks. He is just 100% boy (Mommy's boy and I love it)!

Our daughter, Charley, was born in 2008. She is her mommy with a different exterior. She is bold, outspoken (even though she can't talk yet), a fighter, and thinks her brother and her daddy hung the moon.

In my spare time (huh, what is that?) I like to sew, do crafts, and bake with the kids. I am always up for trying new things and love watching my kids faces when they experience it with me. I spend every day trying to be a better wife, mother, and Christian, but not in that order. :-) I look forward to posting on 3 Boys And A Dog and thank you for the opportunity to share time and experiences with you.
