Hi! My name is Stephanie Eyerly and I am a stay at home mom with a 20 month old baby girl named Mia. She is my everything and I want to give her the world! I enjoy seeing my baby girl laugh and maintaining our home our happy place. Before becoming a mom, I worked as a Case Manager with troubled, delinquent, and disadvantaged children who were in the Foster Care and Probation system. I am aware of how unfair our world can be, so my plan is to protect and advocate for my baby girl as much as I can. I enjoy playing, watching TV, and cuddling up to read a book with her. Writing also plays a big part in my life as a creative outlet. Besides writing for the amazing Corona Moms Blog, I also write for my own blog called Sit. Stay. Mom. at sitstaymom.com. Family is very important to us and quitting my job to stay at home with her was the best decision I've ever made! Oh, and I also have an amazing husband who works hard and loves us very much!
