About Allison

AllisonSlaterTateI am a wife, a daughter, and a mother to four children as well as two crazy dogs. I am a Leo and decidedly ENFP. I consume way too much Diet Coke and French macarons. No judging. I write because I can’t not write. Also, because I am too disorganized to actually fill out baby books. This will have to do.

"I am not perfect to look at and I am not perfect to love, but I am perfectly their mother."

"Giving birth is little more than a set of muscular contractions granting passage of a child. Then the mother is born."
