January 2018

I am Heather Smith, The Midwest Mama. I reside in the Chicago area, but was raised in Michigan’s beautiful Eastern Upper Peninsula. I call myself “Mom” to four kids – 1 human, 3 furry (kitties!). My son, Owen, was born in November 2013.

Prior to turning 30 in 2012, I had never considered having children. In fact, I even voiced my opinion publicly (loudly & frequently) on not wanting to have kids my entire life. In 2012, I discussed having kids with my husband several times. Each time we talked about it, I felt myself considering it more and more. When I turned 30 in November 2012, “Mommy Mania” began. It was like someone just flipped a switch; all of a sudden I wanted a baby! One of my friends told me throughout my 20’s that once I hit 30, I’ll want a kid. Wow, was she right! I now have a FOUR YEAR OLD. Yep, the girl who never wanted kids. And now he’s my favorite human ever. Ever!

  1. Hi Heather! I’m here from #UBP14. I used to think I didn’t want to have kids either (although I would have loved to adopt a bunch and give them all a good home). That was five boys ago! Welcome to the world of Mothering with Baby Boy #1 – you never know where this journey will take you! Who knows, you may end up with five boys too! πŸ˜‰
