I am a WAHM and the owner of Belly Charms LLC, which is no easy task since my little guys are 6 and 7.  I also have a WAHH (that would mean work-at-home- husband).  He works during the day, and I do 90% of my work late in the evenings as soon as my boys and husband go to sleep. Belly Charms is a woman business – I do it all and love it.  I never in a million years thought my little Etsy shop would turn into a real business.When I am not working or being a mom, I am a group fitness instructor and/or personal trainer.  I started teaching aerobics in college and have been teaching for 19 years now.  I worked full time in the fitness industry managing health clubs for most of my career after college.  I cut back to just teaching and training after my first son was born.  I love it, plus it helps with my sanity.  That is one hour I can focus on nothing but my students.


In addition to my 2 boys, we have 2 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 fish.  As you can just imagine, things can get totally out of control.  Usually the instant I get a business phone call is when it all falls apart:)

I have the joy of being home with my little guys almost all the time, and I would trade sleep for that any day….as long as there is coffee!!!

My boys are just hilarious, and that is part of the reason I started Belly Charms – the blog.  Thanks so much for visiting and check back often for updates on what life is really like for a WAHM.

How did Belly Charms get started?

Belly Charms Blog was the great idea that I came up with after my second son was born. When I was pregnant with my first child, I did not know there were maternity belly rings, so when I had to take out my belly ring, of course, the piercing closed.  I got it re-pierced, only to quickly find out I was pregnant again.An ultrasound tech told me that there were maternity belly rings, but they were just hard to find.  Well I went on a search and finally found one. I wore it through my entire pregnancy and right into the delivery room.  The nurses all loved it.

After my son was born, I went back to the “regular” steel belly button rings but just did not like them anymore.  So I got out my maternity belly ring, cut the PTFE bar to a much shorter length, rethreaded the ball, and took off the “It’s a Boy” charm and replaced it with a candy cane……that is when Belly Charms began.
