    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...

    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.

    I found this wonderful link
