exploration motherhood family
Hello, hello! Come on in and meet the Exploration Motherhood family! We’re thrilled to have you here and to share our on-the-go adventures with you- but before we start exploring, let me tell you about us and catch you up on us crazy people guiding this tour!
I’m Stacie, the lead “mama on the move.” I’m a book lover, Disney addict, and a fan of takeout food. I love trying new things, experiencing nature and the world around me, and going on adventures! My family is everything to me -you’ll notice that all different family members feature in our explorations- and my sister is forever my best friend (you’ll see). I’m a work from home mom with a wanderer’s soul and a bit of a sassy side. When I have the time to hang at home and relax, I can be found running around the yard barefoot with my tiny humans or soaking in a bubble bath. If you’d like to learn more about my life and parenting philosophies, check out WHAT IS EXPLORATION MOTHERHOOD?
This is Yockie. My loving husband. My reluctant traveler. The man rocking some killer Mickey Mouse children’s sunglasses. We’ve been married since 2014 but I’ve been dragging him along on adventures since the day we met. My sister set us up after she vetted him with a thorough “interview” process and it’s been happily ever after ever since. He’s a Philly sports fan, lover of hockey, and enjoys the quiet time of when I leave him alone. Kidding. Kind of. Not really. I promise we’re happily married. Since he’s off working hard during the week, I’ve got another partner in crime for our regular weekday trips…
That’s right. Cake. It’s a long story that started with some cupcakes, turned into marriage and babies, and ended with “Aunt Cupcake” becoming Cake/Cakey… because toddlers. Cake is the world’s best sister and auntie. Hands down. She’s a fellow traveler, sanity-bringer, pro child wrangler, amazing wife to her hubby, and serious boss lady. (What? You know someone who needs a wedding planner? Contact DESIGNING MEMORIES.) She explores with us regularly and deserves a spot in with the rest of the Exploration Motherhood family ‘about us’ section. You need to know who she is! Plus Uncle BE gets a photo spot and honorable mention, too. He won’t be around here as often (darn work), but he’s a pretty darn cool uncle.
…And if you haven’t already realized, her name is not actually Cake- you can calm down now.
Our Mini man! Born in 2017, this bundle of energy is the sunshine of our lives. A lover of dancing, books, and Disney movies, he’s been exploring with me since before he entered this world and is always by my side. Mini loves any kind of adventure, though his current favorites seem to include anywhere he can be active. In his spare time, Mini enjoys snuggling our animals and jumping on the bed. His favorite color is green and dinos are life. This dude loves a good car nap and lives for snacks- fruits and veggies are at the top of his list. He’s loving life and spreading joy, as every toddler should. (P.S. He’s darn cute in photos but even cuter in action. Join us over on YOUTUBE to see this chatty cathy on the move.)
Tiny human #2! Born at the end of 2019, this latest and last addition to the Exploration Motherhood family has us excited to be welcoming a second little man to the family and a new explorer to our crew. His current interests include mama milk, afternoon naps, and ceiling fans. He seems like a chill little dude and will bring a little calm to our chaos (for now). By the way, isn’t the name Angus adorable? We chose it as his blog name after Mini’s insistence that it was going to be his real name (sorry, bud, not so much).
