I am a daughter, a sister, a aunt, a wife, a friend, but most and important of all I am a mother! I am the crazy one who fell in love and moved thousands of miles from home to Washington state and married the man I met on an American Airlines flight from St. Louis to Seattle. We have three Beautiful children and one on the way!
I am a part time office manager and full time wife and mother. I love everything about motherhood, the good times as well as the rocky times; from pregnancy on. I have been a mom longer then I have been anything else.
People are mostly shocked when they hear the age range of my children. They are:
- My Prankster: the math/science wiz, my avid reader (the close the book and go to bed type) the muscle, the man of the house when dad is gone, my 15 year old son.
- My Princess: the little mommy, teacher, little chef and baker. My 9 year old. She’s the perfectly balanced young lady that I always wished I could be. The little girl with the blue dress on, umbrella in one hand and a snake in the other.
- My Go Go Child: Oh my Joe always on the go! My big kids have named him Mr. Distructo, we believe he has super powers. He is my 2 year old strong silent child. He rarely talks because he is way too busy to bother with it.
- My Gentle Giant: I am currently closing in on my third trimester with an amazing boy. I believe that babies have personalities even in the womb. This little guy when he moves he is so gentle. The only time he really kicks or punches hard is when I am holding my Joe. Then he makes hard jabs and doesn’t stop until Joe is down. Umm… think I should be kinda worried when these two are finally together? My Gentle Giant is due to arrive January 2013!
My husband and I have been married for 2 and a half years (together 7 years!). He is the most romantic, caring, loving, amazing man I have ever known. He is filled with so much love. When we met I was a single mother of two, working hard to make a better life for the three of us. He never saw a woman who took the long (short) road he only saw my heart, my soul. For our big kids he has loved both of them as his own.
My family and I enjoy the outdoors: hiking, fishing, camping, exploring. We love taking trips and seeing what this world has to offer. But most of all we love spending time with each other making this journey in life together.
