A little About Me
I’m Rita and most people know me as Yippy Momma.
I’m a mom, wife, photographer, business owner, consultant & writer.
I enjoy many things including spending time with family and friends, photography, crafting, in-line skating, bowling, dancing, trying new things, traveling, reading, yoga and volunteering just to name a few. Notice shopping isn’t on this list… I’m not a big shopper, but I’m always up for a day at the mall with friends.
Currently mom to one lil man, Reilly, one lil lady, Ellie, and wife to my hubs, Eric. It took us four years to have our first little miracle and it was worth the wait. Followed by our second one two years later. I’ve also helped raise my younger cousins since they were babies and helped to care for my nephew since he was three. So, I’ve been around the block with diapers, throw up, choosing day cares, homework, junior high and high school drama, boyfriends, girlfriends, mediator between parents and kids, choosing colleges, figuring out class schedules and everything else that comes along with the Life of “We”.
I was born and raised a New Yorker, but lived in So Cal for 10 years where I met Eric. We’ve been in Bergen County, NJ, since 2000. Eric and I have family in So Cal, New York, Canada, China and Australia.
On the About the Blog page, I talk about how Lil Man & Lil Lady are two of 14 cousins. That’s just their immediate family on Eric’s side. Eric is the youngest of seven and his parents are both from large families also. Of his six married siblings we have 14 children among us. Lil Man & Lil Lady also have one cousin on my side of the immediate family whom we call V on this blog. With the extended family, there are a lot of other cousins. Too many to count. But, let’s put it this way, Eric is one of 50 grandchildren and of those 50 many have children of their own also.
