About the BAT Cave

Marcella C Crawford-lifeinthebatcave.comThank you for taking time to visit this platform; and more so wanting to learn more about me. I’m a stay at home mum of 2 kids and as you already know, this is a full time job. When I had my kids, my spouse and I made a critical decision which led me to leave my professional career as a Registered Nurse. Indeed, looking after young children and maintaining the integrity of my home is not always something to smile about. I salute women who are passionate about cooking and cleaning. One day, I might also like these chores. Working in the medical profession sometimes feels like a piece of cake compared to the tasks at home.

All in all, I take each day in strides. My two young kids have really taught me more than I could have imagined. One lesson I keep learning is patience. When I’m not managing my house and my kids, I have found that volunteering in my community is highly rewarding. I serve in my local Boy Scout and I’m also a Girl Scout Leader. At my kids’ school, I serve in the PTO board and as you may have guessed, I’m team mum all the way.

Looking after my home and serving in the community is not all that I do. In my very limited spare time, I love to travel. My passion for exploration and finding new things drives me. Scrap-booking is something else that I really enjoy. If I’m not doing all the above, you will probably find me watching some trashy reality TV. To say the least, I’m obsessed and keep scouting for new shows that fit the bill. My family and friends who really know me will tell you that there is one thing that never fails to make me happy. One word; chocolate. If you want to be my best friend right now, bring me chocolate.

On this platform, you will therefore find fascinating stories about my family life, adventures and much more. We travel a lot as a family and have favorite spots. Here, read all about these locations and get first hand reviews about our destinations. This blog is basically to inspire you in every way possible. I want my readers to know that there is a good side to being a stay at home mum. It is a great life full of adventure as much as there are downsides. If you join your PTO board today after reading our stories, I will have served my purpose. Life is about giving and sharing our passions and experiences, this is how we learn and grow together.

We love to explore our Jersey Shore neighborhood as a family. If we feel too lazy to move, we just relax in our back yard. We try to hit the road often for full family trips. It is no wonder I landed the amazing position of ‘Destination Guru’ or Regional Editor with the PA, NJ. I’m also the DE for Trekaroo. This is an online portal that showcases traveling families. I’m therefore delighted to have this opportunity to share. I’m active through various media platforms and do not hesitate to connect with me. Let us learn together as we make fun in the process.
