Mom. Wife. Teacher. Drinker of Wine.
Hi. I'm Kim Christesen. I'm your average, slightly plump late 40s midwestern suburban mother of two kids. I'm married to an amazing father and husband who somehow still tolerates me even though I don't cook and we are polar opposites when it comes to local baseball teams. I've been a teacher for over 20 years in classrooms from Pre-K to 8th grade and have a Master's degree in Reading. I currently write and teach language arts curriculum for advanced middle school students through our local community college's Personal Enrichment Program, and I have had to send a student to the nurse to remove a pom-pom from his nose which clearly was intended for the art project and not for shoving up one's nostril. I hope the nurse was able to buy a new pair of tweezers after that one.
I hope you'll join me on this journey with light, laughter, and a sense of good intentions which may not last past the first sip of the second glass of wine.
