Am I a SuperMom?

I saw this post today and was thinking about the term SuperMom. I talked to my husband about it and he of course said that I was a supermom, but that’s beside the point. To me the definition of a supermom is a mom that can do it all and not just do it all […]

Rak-Attacks

Anyone that knows a Rakisits (my maiden name, therefore my family on my dad’s side), knows that they have tempers and tantrums. (But not me of course!!) These are notoriously called Rak-Attacks. And they’re usually rather sizeable.

Anyone that knows Pierce knows he can throw a wild fit. Totally out of the blue. Well, I […]

Wow, Flashback…

A friend of mine is getting married in a couple of months and is having her bridal shower tonight. It really takes me back to when I was making plans for marriage!

We’ve been married for 6 1/2 years…7 in February. My bridal shower was on the same day as my birthday, exactly a week […]

Sharks

While we were on vacation, we took the kids to the local aquarium. It also happened to be “Shark Week”, for the 21st consecutive year, so the emphasis was on sharks there. There were shark statistics, one being 22 people were injured on the toilet; the same year there were 6 injuries caused by sharks.

Home Again, Home Again!

So we’re back! The drive home was uneventful, except for one stop we made. We saw a “U Pick” sign with a big peach on it, and we thought it would be fun to get out of the car and see how much it cost to pick some peaches. The orchard was off the road […]

The Long Drive Down

Well, we arrived at the beach! We left our house at 8:40am and got to the beach house at 6:35; a 10-hour drive. Fun, fun! Gab rode with her grandparents so Paul and I just had the little boys in the car. They did absolutely great until about 5:30 when they reached their “I’m done […]

To the Beach

As the Wonder Pets would say, “We’re going to the beach, the beach, the beach.” For his birthday, Pierce got a dvd player from Paul and me, and dvd’s from everyone, so he’ll have movies to watch if he gets too bored on the way there. I think he’ll enjoy the drive, though. Dean’s very […]

Pierce’s 3rd B-Day

Happy Birthday Little Guy!!!

It’s amazing how fast 3 years has gone by! He’s getting so big and has grown out of most of his baby trials. (yay!) He loves playing with his sister and daddy and he’s even sharing his prized “yellow blankie” with his brother. That’s quite a feat! He’s already got a […]

Preschool and Homeschooling

Pierce will be 3 next week and I hear people around me talking about preschool already. Why? What’s the rush? Why do parents feel the need to get the child out of the home and into school at 3 years old? Isn’t home supposed to be the ultimate learning zone? Are parents just anxious to […]

Coincidence?

I find this very interesting, though I don’t really believe in coincidences. I totally believe things happen and we meet people for reasons; everything has its purpose in life and we just need to find it.

Anyway…my pregnancy with my #1 was easy. Not a lot of pains, morning sickness was over everyday at the […]
