Welcome to Four Boys and a Dog! My name is Chelsea and I am the creator and writer of this blog. I started this blog after finding out I was pregnant with my fourth son. As a boy mom, I find that resources for all things considered “boyish” are a lot harder to find. I hoped that this blog might help both those with sons of their own and those with daughters who aren’t really in to the usual pink and frilly things.
I am 26 years old and married to my husband, Aaron, for nearly a year now. We did things a little backwards obviously, but we couldn’t be happier. We are expecting little boy number 4 in July. I love all things arts and crafts and we are all super nerdy in this house with a big love for superheroes, Harry Potter, and video games. We have one big dog, Beau, who the kids all love despite him being one of the laziest creatures I’ve ever known.
I am a special education major working towards earning my degree online while raising my kids. Attachment parenting is important to me and I am a big advocate of breastfeeding, baby wearing, cloth diapering, etc. I am also a Barefoot Books Ambassador. What is Barefoot Books? Barefoot Books is a children’s book company that offers books about diversity, culture, kindness, and more. If you’d like to see what we have to offer, check out my link HERE.
If you ever have a question or a request for a blog post, please feel free to contact me. I want this site to be valuable to all of you readers and your input is always helpful and appreciated.
