    My Kids=My World

    I have been fortunate enough to stay home with and for my children as they are growing up.... I am always here for them, in good times and bad, and am so very proud of the kind, caring individuals they are becoming.

    Corbyn Comes First.

    I am a mother before i am anything else. I take care of my son before i take care of myself. I will suffer being tired or hungry for him. I take care of him then do my homework once he is changed and fed and sleeping. I love being a mom. My son even comes before my bf/baby's...

    Until You <3 {this Is Precious All Moms Should Read}

    I never pulled over to stare at horses, I was never willing to give someone else my last bite, I never planned on handling someone else's boogers, I never listened to a song 50 times in a row, I never found rocks on my dryer, I never had to power to heal a wound with my kiss...

    Sometimes I Get So Busy, That I Forget The Little Things. And Then I Hear A Voice Saying "Watch Me Mama"!

    See me when my eyes light with pride, when I give you a gift I have made myself. See me when I look at you as you're reading me a book. See me try to understand when you take the time to explain things to me. See me melt when you use a funny voice to coax a grin out of me when I...

    I found this wonderful link

    for all mothers everywhere, and the children too! I haven't yet but I think I will print it out, frame it, and hang it above my desk to remind me that everything I do, or DON'T do, MATTERS to my children.

    If there is any accomplishment

    that I would like to be known for in my life is that I have done a good job as a mother. My children's interests and needs come first before anything else. I love my children and I will do anything to make their lives better even if it means making sacrifices.

    I love my 3 year old daughter more
