I can be Batman

But its not easy. I would rather let Jonathan be Batman. You know, the one from the best Batman movie ever? The one with the really awesomely creepy and scary Joker? At the end of the movie (if you need a recap) we find out that the town hero has turned bad and done bad… Continue Reading


They’re not creepy.

It happened twice in one week- which was strange because it had never happened before. We are used to the double takes or long stares as people walk by (Ben usually just waves,) we are used to kids asking “why is that on his neck?” and of course, I know they look different. But still……. Continue Reading

I still remember Ben’s face right before we met the dogs- he was SO excited. When I look back through all that happened when we were matched with our sweet Tallula (the post is HERE) I cant believe its been a year since we officially took Tula’s leash from her Puppy Raisers Dawn and Dan,… Continue Reading


I’m sorry I forgot!

Natalie I’m sorry, I feel bad. You are my girl, you are my side kick, my sweetheart, I honestly can’t imagine a life without you and if someone asked me what I “do” I know exactly what I would say to them. But this morning I completely forgot. I had 3 places to be at… Continue Reading


13 going on 21….4….30….2….

Natalie you just turned 13. I really can’t believe our girl, our ONLY girl is a teenager. I feel like I am watching you like a hawk and you can blame it on Scotty. I blinked and he went from 9 to 16 and I am not going to let that happen with you. I… Continue Reading


Because they thought it looked awesome.

I find millions of selfies on the different devices around the house. Usually I delete 49 of the 50 taken (they can’t seem to ever take just one…) But when Ben, (following the lead of the bigs) learned how to set wallpaper (lock AND/OR home screen) it went to a whole new level. I’ve started… Continue Reading


Sometimes it feels like this…..

Ever felt like you were doing it all on your own? And wondering if all your efforts are making a difference? Maybe you have felt more like this: Like if…I…just…push…a…little…harder… then “it” will change, or they will change, maybe my life will change….. Or maybe you have felt like people are just walking by, not… Continue Reading


Jealous?? Me too.

Tonight Ty and Ben were snuggling with Jonathan on the couch and Ty said with a big grin “Mom aren’t you jealous??” He knew that of COURSE I would be SO jealous of Jonathan getting that cuddle instead of me! This week I did feel really jealous about something. And it kind of made me… Continue Reading


Are we DONE yet?

Can you think of something really hard that you HAD to do in your life? Something that made your gut twist and your mind go into denial when you first learned about it? And even when you finally realized that was the road you had to take, your heart had to go into survival mode… Continue Reading


Yip-PEE!!!!!

I thought this photo of Ben and Ty cheering at Jacks Flag Football game last Friday was appropriate. Today I had a little unexpected “hallelulah!” moment. Seriously I felt so grateful and it was for such a silly thing. Boys come with the distinct advantage of being able to pee anyplace without it being too… Continue Reading
