Hi! I'm Kayla

Welcome to my blog! This is my life and stories about being an interracial, international family, and a Mom of 2.

I’m Canadian and my husband is American. We met in 2008 when I moved to America to be an Au Pair. After moving back home to Canada we kept in contact and ended up getting married on August 6th, 2011. After we got married we started our immigration paper work ever so that we could finally be permanently together but things got even more complicated when I got pregnant with our first child a month after getting married. We were apart throughout the entire pregnancy, with a few visits here and there, until the birth of our son on June 24th, 2012. We’ve been together as a family living in United States ever since. When our son was 7 months old we found out we were expecting another baby, and our second son was born on November 6th, 2013.

I’m a stay at home mom and our sons are 6 and 5 years old. We are a Christian family that lives our life according to God’s Truth and Purpose for our family. My amazing husband, Marcus, is our sole provider and I love and appreciate him so much for all that he does that gives me the opportunity to stay home and home school our children.

My blog is called The Beans Mom because this is mainly a blog about my experiences being a Mom, juggling marriage, and homeschooling our children. I refer to my children as Jellybean who is my first born, and Littlebean who is my second born. I just really wanted a place where I could share my experiences, things about my family, recipes or anything that crosses my mind. I want to share my world, and hopefully reach, educate, and help other Moms. So enjoy, I hope you like this little preview into my life!
