    So Proud

    I love my son to the end of infinity and back. I learn from him just about as much as he learns from me. I'm very protective of him, teaching him how to be aware and how to get out of situations or help someone in an emergency. I constantly feed his curiosities as he reveals...

    The Look In Their Eyes.....Priceless

    I'll probably never be rich and I don't aspire for fame (does world domination count?) but the look in eyes of my 2 little ones when they gaze at me, makes me feel 10 feet tall with an "S" on my chest for Supermom. Hold on while I go get my cape.
