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'.

Off to Grandmother’s House She Goes

Abigail is off to her Nana’s house today for a couple days. Unfortunately, as I mentioned previously, I couldn’t get her into daycare for the couple days this week that I work so my mother is being my savior.

Abi has done solo trips to Nana’s house once before. She had so much fun that she didn’t want to come home with me when we met up. It was actually a little depressing considering I missed her so much. But I can’t blame her. Nana spoils her and she has my little brother and sister to play with every day so it’s bound to be more fun there.

One thing that really stinks about the military is always being so far away from family. My mom recently moved down to Myrtle Beach so now she is only about 2 1/2 hours away instead of 14. We meet up in Wilmington to pass the baby when I need her to. It’s great for Abigail to get time with family and it’s great for me to be able to have that emergency babysitter option.

After my husband gets out of the military we plan on moving away but not home. Either Charlotte or somewhere in Virginia. I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. I want to move back home to be around my family but there are literally no job opportunities there. We live in a very small town in NY with super high taxes and unemployment rate. The school system is slowing failing due to budget cuts so it’s really just not desireable other than our families.

It’s a tough choice but such is life right?
