Are You Paid To Have Us?

Yesterday, Kaleb was talking about wanting to go to the movies and he mentioned Thor.  I, obviously, support the viewing of Thor so I said that maybe we could see it next weekend when Daddy would be off.  Anyway, he didn't seem convinced and just said that it would be expensive.  That's when I pointed out that the end of the … Continue reading Are You Paid To Have Us?

Your Mommy Adopted You, Mommy, Just Like Me!

Over the weekend, the kids and I were on the way to the park to meet some friends.  My friends have also adopted through foster care.  They have a daughter, but, sadly, just had to say goodbye to her biological twin baby brothers when they were reunited with their birth father.  It is not my story to tell, but, suffice … Continue reading Your Mommy Adopted You, Mommy, Just Like Me!

I Don’t Want To Be Grumpy Pants.

I wrote this blog right after Thanksgiving, but, for some reason, never posted it. And, since one of my resolutions, this year, is to be more patient, I thought I'd slip it. in. :)I hate it when I yell at my kids.  I know that I'm not the only mother that does it, but I hate it.  And, … Continue reading I Don’t Want To Be Grumpy Pants.
