My quirks

Marleny, pronounced mar-leny, as in Leny & Squiggy from Laverne & Shirley

My family and my kids are my #1 job. My husband and I will celebrate out 12th wedding anniversary this July, and we have four wonderful kids, ages 10 (going on 13), 8 (going on 10), 6 (sweetest 6 yr old!), and a sweet and rambunctious 4 year old

Just some random, and fun stuff you should know about me:

I was born in Central America, but I've lived in the US since I was 7 years old.

I am fluent in spanish, and our kids are in a spanish immersion school so that they too can be fluent.

Once upon a time, I was fluent in french, now I can understand it but speaking is a different story.

I am a neat freak. I've always liked things picked up, but God has taught me that it's okay to live in disarray--I've got 4 little ones after all, and picking up the house is the last thing of the day.

I cannot go to bed, if my kitchen is not clean, BUT I have no problem leaving a load of wash in the washer.

My least favorite house job is--well, I have two--washing dishes by hand, and laundry

My favorite house job is PLAYING and LAUGHING with my kids

I love the outdoors.

I love to laugh.

I love people.

And here's some fun fact:

I am the oldest of three--I have a sister and a brother. My husband is the youngest of two. All the siblings are married and have children. I have 8 nieces, and 2 nephews. I love big families!
