My family is one of the most important things in my life. My kids, husband, mom and brothers mean everything to me.
For as long as I can remember, my brothers have always teased me. They would tease me about everything and anything. It took me a long time to realize they did it out of love. But when you are in the moment it is hard to see that. Now, they are teasing me through my kids, or I should say especially Jeff. He gets my kids to say and do the craziest things. Sometimes I even have to tell my kids that they can’t do that, and that there is nothing funny about that, when inside I am trying hard not to laugh myself.

My brother Jon is having a baby, and there is nothing better than having a baby around. I loved being pregnant, I enjoyed everything about it. It is such an amazing thing, to know that you created that thing inside of you.
I would love to have another baby. But when I think about how all my kids sleep through the night, they are all potty trained, they all can walk and tell me what is hurting them, I then think, you know, we are all good. We have more than we can handle. I think that is why I would like to get a dog. It would be something for me to take care of, and I think it’s really important for kids to grow up with a pet. We need to find the right type of dog that would fit in just perfectly with our family. The kids are on board with getting a dog, but now we need to get Dan on board too.
I love the idea of having a bucket list. I thought it was important because it gave the kids something to look forward to, and it would also hold me accountable to make some of those things happen. While we didn’t finish it, we did some things that we would not have ordinarily done. We did get the feeling of accomplishing something when we crossed things off the list.
