My name is Tiffany Gordon: I’m The Decent Mom.
I’m here to serve and support you: the Mom in the trenches, trying your best but falling short of perfect. You’re amazing, even if “Super Mom” doesn’t seem to fit you. Be proud to be The Decent Mom.
Originally from Washington state, I joined the Air Force in 2001 as a medic. I earned my Associate’s degree in Allied Health Science, and met amazing people along the way.
Becoming The Decent Mom
I married Mississippi man in 2002. We had a few years together before having our first child, Lahna. She passed away that same year due to complications from Trisomy 18. In 2009 we had a healthy and strong son, Eric, and I learned how to be a full time Military Mama. It wasn’t easy! In 2011, we had a beautiful and smart daughter, Holly, and I left my military career to stay home with my amazing kids while my husband still serves active duty. We’ve recently set about adopting our resilient niece, Rana, after the passing of her mother.
I home-school my biological kids using an eclectic method that is heavily influenced by Charlotte Mason. It’s honestly the best thing I’ve ever done, although I have nothing against the public, private or charter school! It’s just what works for OUR family. My niece goes to a great public school because it’s what she enjoys. It works for her!
I have an incredible respect for motherhood. There are many “Mom Blogs” out there, but I create a blog for those of us who aren’t perfect. For the Moms who are worried about taking the wrong step, not knowing it and having long-term repercussions. You’re okay and doing well. Be who you are. We are in this together and we’ll get it all figured out. There is no “best” parenting style. My methodology has changed several times over the past few years. Each family needs to do whatever works for their them. No matter who you are, you’ll find help and support here.
