Somebody Stop Me Before I Get A Damn Puppy

I don't know whether I've lost my mind or if my ovaries are bored, but lately, I've had both babies AND puppies on the brain.  Now I know that deep down, I don't REALLY want to go back to that whole beginning stage of sleep deprivation and cleaning up poo every ten minutes.  But, that certainly hasn't stopped me from obsessing…

Things That Make You Go "Hmmm"

Nothing really surprises me when it comes to my kids, but I seriously don't know what possesses them to do some of the crazy, stupid things they do.  And sometimes, it's really really hard to be the parent and not laugh at those crazy, stupid things.  (Cause let's be honest, some of them are pretty freaking hysterical!)  The latest thing that made me go hmmm?  My son decided…

Out and About: What Mommy and Daddy Do While the Kids Are Away

The boys are hanging out with Nana and G-Dad {my parents} for the week. 
My Mom will offer to babysit the boys throughout the year, allowing Greg and I the opportunity to spend some quality time together. We love it! It's like a mini vacation! And judging by the pictures she sent me this afternoon, I would assume that the boys aren't missing us terribly, either. …

I'm bummed that our adoption blog is no longer online (the host closed) but I'm happy that I have it backed up on disk. So here's a "blast from the past" in honor of Mother's Day. The post I wrote while we were waiting to travel to meet Hannah.

I Broke A Promise To My Daughter's Birth Mother

This past Sunday I told my oldest child that I was thinking about going to church.  I don’t go often. She asked me in a very serious voice to be sure to pray for her sister.  I was surprised by this and jokingly asked her if she wanted me to pray for her sisters soul.  She said “Yeah mommy”.  I asked her why and she told me that when the girls attended a memorial…

Hail to the Chief

As an American, there are a few things I take for granted, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness being the big three.  I’m also guaranteed certain liberties such as the right of free speech, the freedom of religion, and the right to own a gun.

Going Home

Home is where the heart is.  But, for my daughters, their hearts aren’t just under my roof.

As internationally adopted children, I know a part of them still resides in their birth countries.  As they grow up as red, white, and blue Americans, Elle is still Russian, and Bunny is still…
