Old About Me


My Office

Hi, I’m Christine, mother of 4 children ages 2, 4, 6, and 7. Oops, forgot that I have a 40 year old too! I deprive my kids of school, meat, and TV…all in the name of blogging. Gotta get my material somewhere!

Since the age of 15, I’ve worked in the field of education, as a teacher, administrator, and everything in between, which is why…

I homeschool my 4 children! Ok, there are other reasons too, such as my inability to get 4 kids dressed and out the door by 8am, but we won’t go there just yet.

Currently, I work as a private tutor in all subject areas, including organization and time management skills, which is why…

I hope my students never visit me at home and see me in real life! Can you imagine what they’d think upon seeing all the clutter and dirty laundry piling up while I’m on twitter?!

I join contests. Sometimes I win, which is why…

I’m 1 of 25 iVoices on iVillage in the country! This is my claim to fame, besides winning cloth diaper service and a car!¬†True stories.

As a homeschooling, working mother of 4 I seriously have no time, which is why…

I started this blog and joined twitter, Facebook, pinterest, and so much more!

Bios are really hard to write, which is why…

You can learn more juicy details about me here:

Love this, Christine! It’s so perfect. And maybe you can just get and extra large sized business card ;)

Or maybe a business scroll!

I LOVE your new About Me page! And the sidebar blurb too! And I didn’t know that you had won a car! Have you written that story here and I missed it? Please direct me to it!


Christine@TheAums November 4, 2011 at 11:22 am

Thanks, Sharon. I’ve written the car story but haven’t published yet. I’ll let you know…may be soon!

Thanks so much! I’m glad you found it to because I had the chance to visit yours and see what else we have in common besides having our babies close together…homeschooling!

Whoa! No wonder I love your blog! I’m a former teacher and tutor too! And a mom of 2. Holy SHIT! You have 4? I’m contemplating homeschooling my 2 because I can’t keep up!!! I’m way better at giving advice than following my own. Glad I found you! Oh, and writing bios sucks ass.
