The Bog

Hot Sauce on My Kids’ Leftovers is a blog from a real family just like yours. We are all about finding happiness in the midst of the chaos that comes with starting a family.

Here we share our experiences as we find our way while working full-time, homeschooling our three kiddies, navigating the world of family finances, and more while trying our best to have a great time.  The title was born of Hubby’s appreciation for adding a little hot sauce to the kid’s leftovers. And I mean, let’s face it. We all eat our kids’ leftovers, why not enjoy them?

We hope that you enjoy our journey as we stumble, dance, and stride along the path to “familyhood” with the best of intentions. We can’t wait to share with you.  Let the rollercoaster begin!

A Message From Mom

Hey there!

I’m so glad you stopped by our little corner of the world!

I am a wife to a wonderful husband of 9 years and a mom to three amazing little people ages 8, 5, and 3. I’m an engineer and project manager by trade, but I have absolutely fallen in love with homeschooling.

I initially created this blog to inspire other families who are navigating the world of homeschooling while working full-time. As we began homeschooling in 2020 during the pandemic, we discovered how important the concept of homeschool became to us. We loved being able to customize our children’s education to fit our family values and goals, and to give them the individualized experience we have the opportunity to give them.

As many children returned to traditional schools, we found ourselves in a unique position as we continued to work and school our children, at home. Most of the information I found on families who homeschool with both parents working full-time was limited. I’m hoping to add to the conversation and provide another resource for the growing number of families who homeschool while working.

I realized along the way that after years of experience, I have lots to offer in other areas of parenting and I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned (still learning) with you all!

I hope that you enjoy your visit with us!
