Why the name Trophy Mom Diaries?
I am the 2nd wife to a man 15 years older than me.
Stereotypically that would make me the ‘Trophy Wife’.
However, I’m also a homeschooling mother of 5;
who drives a big white van with a posse of little ones;
is known for doing laundry at midnight;
and tells stories of escaping meal worms from Science projects gone bad.
I don’t fit most stereotypes.
What started as an inside joke became a catchy name for the blog and I just went with it.
What is a Trophy Mom?
Trophy Moms are intentional mothers who don’t really fit traditional stereotypes of what it is to be a wife or modern Mom.
Trophy Moms believe in giving motherhood their all, use their ( many) talents to bless their families and others, and actually enjoy being women.
They know motherhood actually deserves a Trophy and they are their husband’s prize, as every wife should be.
Why I write this blog
I believe women do best when they share and experience each others’ stories. We all have truths to share.
