Who is Cat?

Well, I think it is time to introduce myself!

My name is Cat, short for Catherine. I am in my late twenties (I am writing this now just so I can say that, as I am having a milestone birthday in less than two weeks!)

I have been married to my wonderful husband for 7 years. We have four, yes FOUR, boys, yes, boys, all boys (no we are not *trying for a girl*)! 

My oldest son is 7 years old, starting grade 2! We were blessed to have him in our life through adoption and he has high functioning Autism. His birth and early months are a blog post unto themselves and I will share that later. He LOVES to read, play soccer and is my 'biggest baby'. 

My second son is 4.5 years old, he starts full time kindergarten in a few short weeks! He is my helper, my calm child who loves to clean, cuddle and fold laundry!

Thirdly is my spirited child! C is almost 2.5 years old and was my fastest talker, fastest walker and fastest runner! The conversations he can have with you to justify why he climbed the ladder onto our roof are incredible!

My last little angel has been perfect from the day he was born. Except the fact that he will not take a soother!!! With dark hair, he shocked me when he arrived (my biological kids have blond hair). He is 4 months old now.

Before owning Bundles and Buzz, I was on the retailer side of things as I owned a cloth diaper store. It taught me many things about e-commerce, customer service and of course, cloth diapers!

I work as a nurse in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) in my 'spare' time. And love the babies! It can get stressful, but most of the time babies get better and go home and I love being a part of those early days. 

Bundles and Buzz was born out of my desire to find the coolest mom products before anyone else heard of them (being honest here!) And why not add the surprise factor to them?

The best part about owning Bundles and Buzz is the interactions I have with our companies and customers. I have made many friendships through this business and I truly appreciate all of our fans for being around and sharing the adventure of mommyhood with me!
