Ashley Mozingo

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a stay at home mom to two girls, Paislee, 3 and Keely, 1. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and is currently stationed at a Coast Guard unit on Camp Lejune. We have been married for five years now and have spent two of those years in Alaska, where Paislee was born, and two in Maine, where we had Keely. We were lucky to get stationed here in 2012, and call North Carolina "home". We were both born and raised in different cities in eastern North Carolina, and we are super excited to get to spend some time here with our girls and introduce them to some of our favorite places that we had as children. Before I met my husband, I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Communications. I have a love for writing, and a huge passion for being a mom, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about my experiences and exciting moments of this rocky ride that we all call 'Motherhood'.


A Father’s Day Poem

The babies made some cute cards for Father’s Day last week at daycare, and when I say “made” I mean they supervised the teachers’ painting their feet while giggling and getting paint everywhere.  It was a messy success!

We included a poem that is cheesy but adorable, and I wanted to share it with all the wonderful daddies out there that are raising their kids right by setting positive examples, because like the poem says, they are following in your footsteps!

“Walk A Little Slower, Daddy”

“Walk a little slower, Daddy,”

Said a child so small,

“I’m following in your footsteps

And I don’t want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast,

Sometimes they’re hard to see;

So walk a little slower, Daddy,

For you are leading me.

Someday when I’m all grown up,

You’re what I want to be;

Then I will have a little child

Who’ll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right,

And know that I was true,

So walk a little slower, Daddy,

For I must follow you.”


Yes, even my big strong husband got a little teary-eyed over this gift, awww.  We also made him a special omelet for breakfast and gave him some homemade cards, a religious book for fathers, and a big tub of his favorite ice cream.  We all made sure he knows how much we love and appreciate him (:

What did you give Daddy for his special day?

    That is too cute! I might have to steal this idea since we’re postponing our Fathers Day. We made a bunch of other homeade gifts for Kevin, which Serophina was so excited about, she’s already told him about the presents he’s getting. So funny!

    Thanks Mamta, I have to give credit to the other girl I work with; it was her idea, but I helped paint and press feet (: When did you/are you having Father’s Day and what did you guys make? I love homemade gifts — they mean so much!

    We’re doing our’s this Friday. I had Serophina paint and decorate a picture frame and i put a picture of the two of them in it. Serophina also painted a little canvas with acrylic paints for him. And for the grand finale, I got the girls and me all dolled up in matching outfits and had a friend take pictures of us by the waterfront. I picked out the best one and had it blown up and framed. He better like all of it, we’ve been working on it for months!

    Mamta that sounds adorable; what did your husband think? I’m sure he loved all the heartfelt presents (:

    He absolutely loved them. After being gone for so long, I think we could’ve given him moldy fruit and he would’ve been happy!
