Welcome to my blog -- Because I'm the Mom. I'm planning to use this space to write about parenting, mostly things I see in the news or on social media and maybe just a little bit about my own kids from time to time.
Before I get started here's a little bit about me:
I grew up in Ravenna and live there now with my family.
I'm a proud graduate of Ravenna High School and Mount Union College (now the University of Mount Union)
My husband, Scott, and I have three amazing boys -- 13, 9 and 5
I've worked at the Record-Courier since 1995, starting as a stringer just a few months after my college graduation and working my way up to managing editor. I've covered just about every beat on the newspaper: Northern Portage County (Aurora, Garrettsville, Hiram and Nelson), Rootstown, Streetsboro and Kent State University. I've also been the entertainment editor and the news editor.
My hobbies include reading, watching TV and movies with my family, genealogy, sewing and napping. Oh, and sports. When you have three boys sports is one of your hobbies. Our boys participate in wrestling, soccer and baseball. And that's just the older two. Our youngest hasn't started yet so who knows what he'll be into.
Just when I think I have things figured out I realize I don't. Not even a little bit.
I'll be posting every Tuesday and Friday.
If you have any parenting topics you'd like me to touch on feel free to comment on this post or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also follow me on twitter at @heatherrainone or follow my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/HeatherCondleyRainoneRecordCourierManagingEditor
