My name is Tree ... a.k.a. "Mother of Pearl".... hence the name of my blog Mother of Pearl It Is. Loving wife and mommy to 5 beautiful kiddos plus one wonderful "daughter-in-law to be" and proud grandmom to two very precious little girls. And guess what....they ALL live with me!! YES, you heard me right....all 10 of us "co-exist" together in a 5-bedroom apartment...rather nicely, I might add. LOL So, how do I keep my sanity, you ask?! Who said I WAS sane? :) Actually, I very much adore my family and even through all the craziness in my household, I wouldn't trade any of them for the world!
