About Me

Thank you for stopping by my blog!  My name is Tiffany, and I blog as the Domesticated Physicist.

In my former life I was a physics and biology student, enthusiastic about working in a medical diagnosis or research laboratory.  I was focused, driven, and determined to achieve success in what I deemed the only way possible for me:  by becoming an accomplished research scientist.

All of that changed when my husband and I found out we were expecting a baby at the tender ages of 23 and 24 years old.  After prayerful consideration, I left my job as a government inspector in a nuclear fuel unit manufacturing facility to stay home with our 9 month old baby girl.

I have been a stay-at-home mom since then, working only part-time in different seasons of our life.  I see my main responsibilities as managing our home, caring for our children, and (soon) homeschooling.  Because these tasks can sometimes feel monotonous, I find myself dabbling in different things for a challenge, for some intellectual stimulation, and just for fun.

On this blog you will find those things that keep this former physicist engaged and satisfied with life at home with three little children.  These things include making natural cleaning products and self-care products, the study of nutrition and child development, the observation and occasional photography of the world around me, being frugal, and, of course, cooking.

Life at home with little children can be exhausting, daunting, and yet, sometimes boring.  To the moms out there searching for something to do, something to learn, and something to explore that makes life at home with kids less of a drag, you have found the right place!  Domesticated Physicist is a place where I share the things I do at home to keep our family healthy, keep our budget down, and most importantly, keep my mind sharp.

Thank you for stopping by!
